Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the bright and beautiful Sunkissed collection with you.

This layout is featuring my fave paper in the collection ‘Bright side’. As soon as I saw this paper I knew that I wanted to create a layout that features the rainbow design from the paper. It has taken me many layouts using this collection to finally decide on a layout design that featured it.

The subject of my layout is my kiddies at Summer on our vacation. I have been able to create and document a number of our summer memories thanks to Sunkissed. The pocket cards were the perfect size to mat my photos and I was able to choose complimentary colours to the colours I’ve used from the rainbow. I printed the photos using my portable photo printer and adhered them matted to the page with a foam adhesive.

The rainbow was fussy cut from the patterned paper  I decided to only feature three of the rainbow colours on this layout. I tacked them to my page lightly and secured them with machine stitching.

To the left of the photo I have embellished the page using a mix of ephemera, puffy stickers and floral ephemera pieces. I also used some of the gold foam hearts to match in with the title. The wood buttons were a nice finishing touch to the clusters of embellishments on the page.

I used similar embellishment choices to the right side of my photos also.

The gold foam stickers make the perfect feature title for a layout. Summer days worked perfectly on this layout and with these photos. Instead of my usual typewritten journaling I have used the mini word stickers on the Accessory sheet to sum up some thoughts from our day.

When adhering embellishments to the page I have used a combination of glue dots, liquid adhesive and foam adhesive.

The white card stock base was adhered to the ‘Summer lights’ paper on a slight angle to provide visual interest. I also machine stitched around the edges for further texture. 

I hope this layout has inspired you today to get creating with this beautiful collection.

Take care,
