Summer Fun...

 Hello KaDoodle Bugs and Happy Wednesday!!!! We have made it halfway through the week...YAY!!! KBD has been coming out with so many awesome files lately, don't you think? I have a hard time trying to pick which ones I want to create with, but when I saw these Tropical Flamingos I knew I had to have them. And what better way to start creating some fun Summer projects than with flamingos!!! So with that being said, I am sharing a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout I created entitled, "Summer Fun".

To start, I uploaded my svg file to my Cricut Design Space and cut all of my file pieces using my Cricut Explore Air 2.  I then inked all pieces using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and adhered them together using Art Glitter Glue. I then used a white Gel Pen to add some accents and highlights.

To create my title, I used some foam glitter stickers that I had in my stash to spell out "Summer Fun". To spruce up the banner, I added Nuvo Crystal Drops along the top edge of the banner and I outlined the two small hearts at each end with stickles.

To jazz up the pineapple and watermelon, I added some sequins (which again is from my stash). I also added glossy accents to the watermelon seeds and finally a small bow to the pineapple to add even more interest.

For the two flowers, I added some Stickles in the center just to bring out some more glittered accents throughout the layout. My photo mats were die cut using the Fancy Frames die set I have from Craftin Desert Divas. I layered most of my paper piecings covering a small area of each mat, but did not glue that area down (which will allow me to slip pics underneath for a better fit). And to finally complete and finish off my layout, I added some more Nuvo Crystal Drops at the edges of my mats.

Below is the KBD Tropical Flamingos file that I used to create this layout:

I hope that you enjoyed my project and will return again soon for more inspiration and amazing project ideas from our Design Team.
