Sweet Summer Layout by Judy Stark

 Today I made a summer page for my annual book. I try to make a layout or 2 at least monthly. By January, I have an annual Family book finished! So much easier than doing it all at one time. 
  With this page, I wanted to use bright summer colors, stamps, die cuts and some of those stickers I bought hundreds of when I first started scrapbooking. Just because you have an electronic or manual cutter; it doesn't mean you can't combine techniques.
I cut my frames, table, tablecloth, chair and umbrella with my Gazelle. They are the BossKut Picnic set, soon to be released for purchase this week!   I then did a print n cut with my Gazelle and added the frog. The little girl stamp is made by Magnolia Stamps. With the Funtime program that comes with my Gazelle, you can easily stamp an image, then import into the art board of Funtime and do a print n cut.  I then colored with my Copic markers. I like using this feature in Funtime as I can enlarge or make my stamps smaller as needed.

After I glued the cuts, I applied the food stickers on the table. They are dimensional and didn't take away from my layout by using them.  So go through your older things and use them!
I have a lot of stickers and used them for the title and subtitles. Fast and Easy!
