Summer Vacation, I Love You! with Laura

Hi everyone, it's Laura here again to share a Project Life layout I created using the Tiki, I Love You kit.  I was inspired by all the wonderful other design team projects that have been made with this kit and I wanted to celebrate some of what I've been enjoying about summer before the season changes.  

Although this kit is very tropical themed, there are plenty of elements that are perfect for documenting summer activities at home.  For me that means spending time in the garden with my mom in the warm summer evenings.  

To put together this layout, I first printed a large photo at 12x12".  I love using large photos to create impact in my project life album and this one of my mom is an image I love of her.  I pulled out the die cut pack and went to work creating a column of embellishments across the left side of the page.  It only took a few minutes to adhere them down, add some enamel dots, and the layout was complete.

For the right side of the album I used a divided page protector and used elements from the kit to create custom pocket page cards.  For the top left 4x6 card I cut down an A5 planner page, added a strip of patterned paper across the bottom, and some die cut words to complete the title.

I used a cut apart sheet to create a filler card featuring the adorable bird from this kit, Tiki.  Don't be afraid to use embellishments that don't perfectly match the theme of your layout.  There definitely aren't tropical birds in my yard, but it enhances the summer feel of the layout and I love the finished project.  

I created my journaling card using some patterned paper, with card stock layered on top and finished the whole layout with a few more die cuts and enamel dots. I hope this project will inspire you to go create something summer-y with TIki, I Love You and celebrate whatever summer means to you.
