Summer Breeze with Suzanne!

Good morning! 

Design team member, Suzanne, here to introduce you to one of our newest releases!! Say hello to "Summer Breeze"!!! I just love the purples and teals in this collection. Definitely feels "cool" on these hot, hot, HOT days of summer :)

I couldn't wait to put these papers to work on a layout of our youngest niece, Alexandra. Her favorite color is purple :)

I distressed the edges of the patterned paper and hand sewed the border. The purple gingham ribbon was the perfect embellishment to this black and white photo, which I printed with a bit of negative 
space on the left hand side.


I wanted to keep the focus on the photo and beautiful paper - so I added an inspirational sentiment to the bottom. The word "smile" was cut using my Cricut and coordinating paper from the collection.  

The rest of the text was printed on my computer (you could also stamp it with Very Berry Powder Puff chalk ink!) and then matted on the same purple paper the photo and layout were layered on.

I hope you enjoyed this peek at the brand new "Summer Breeze" line! It is a favorite of mine! :)

Happy crafting!!
Pin It Now!
