12x12 Summer Layout

I can't believe that summer is pretty much over. But I have to tell you, I am so happy to see the cooler weather that we have had the past couple of days! This is a layout that I did for a convention swap. I started with Early Espresso background. For the banner I used a strip of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit then I layered on a strip of the Just Add Cake DSP. I used the Petite Pennants punch and punched out Whisper White triangles and Peach Parfait scalloped triangles. Sponged and stamped the white with Tempting Turquoise and layered onto the Peach Parfait. Strung them together with the Early Espresso bakers twine. The photo mats are Pear Pizzaz and again distressed on the edges. Wrapped with the white bakers twine. I made the flowers with the smallest flower from the Island Floral die and layered it onto one of the flowers from the Fun Flowers die. Did you know that one of the flowers from the Cottage Garden stamp set fits perfectly into the smallest flower on the Island Floral die? I'm so glad I figured that out. Makes that die cut so cute with very little effort. And if you are using the clear mount stamps you don't even have to break out your Stamp-a-ma-jig! The middle of the flower is a simple silver brad. Really cute embellishments that are quick and easy.
