These colors speak summer to me. The bright blue feels like water. The orange and yellow is so vivid I almost have a sunburn...(or maybe I do have a sunburn). White reminds me of wearing those white shoes out until Labor Day. The kraft is almost reminiscent of the sand. It's a fun and easy going color scheme that can be used in so many ways and is sure to brighten a day.

Doesn't this photo Melanie took of her son just speak summer? Love how she used the Calendar Tag to show the month the photo was taken and the little pops of color are perfect on the kraft background.
* I am working on new calendar tags for next year so these are all gone but stay tuned for more!

Just an overdue layout about a class my boys took at the local science museum years ago. ;) I loved using the scallop tags as a partial border, popped up on foam dots because I love the dimension that gives. Also, I was thrilled to find the lightbulb "dot" in the Vignette set, as it was perfect for this layout (my boys love playing with the lightbulb exhibits at this particular museum). I added a bit of Glossy Accents over the lightbulb part to make it pop a bit more (hard to tell in the photos, sorry!). The "August" calendar tag was printed out on cardstock (I was very happy to discover that the August tag colors coordinated so nicely with my layout) and I just added the exact date with a black pen.
How cool is the glossy accents on the lightbulb? Genius!

Using the circle tags made this layout super quick to put together. I love that the Vignette collection has two color stories in it, so when I was done with the layout, I used the teal/green plus the same design concept to make a quick card!

What an awesome idea to use leftover pieces from a page to create a card to have on hand. I really need to do that because I am always making a card last minute.
