I’m always excited to see the colors included in the exclusive monthly kits and this month I was pretty happy to see pops of orange. Orange is one of those colors that doesn’t seem to appear too often in scrapbooking supplies and I loved having the opportunity to use it in a layout.
I really liked the orange “Hot” journaling card (which I trimmed down in size) because it not only complimented the colors in my photo, but it also emphasized the subject of my journaling-how we were keeping cool during this hot, hot summer.
When it came to pulling complimentary papers for my layout, I turned to the Let’s Eat Collection and found some great yellows and teal that I thought worked really well. I chose to embellish simply and along with with a few items from my own stash, I included the fun white velum (from the August Kit) and acrylic hearts.
I hope this inspires you to pull out your kit and get your special summer memories documented! – Michelle
