Fun In The Sun!

As it is the Mad Scrappers Club tonight, I thought I would reveal the first 'sneaky peek' that I posted last week.  This one is called 'Fun In The Sun!' and it was created using a fab sketch by Susan Stringfellow at Sketch Savvy.

 
This is my interpretation of this sketch using this month's Mad Scrappers Kit of Fancy Pants 'What a Wonderful Day' patterned papers - Wondrous; This Way; and Strips.  The Bazzill Cardstock is Fire Hearts, Candle Glow and White and the technique this month is using DCWV Cork Sheets and Fancy Pants Cork Shapes (Arrows).

I added the cork arrow shapes to the top left hand side of the layout and made a cork butterfly using a Sizzix Die with the BigShot.  These cork sheets cut really easily and could be cut with scissors.  They are self-adhesive, so easy to adhere to projects and they add some really nice dimension to the page.

I used my Martha Stewart large circle cutter to create the Fire Hearts circles - cutting one 5" circle, then placing the circle cutter on the circle, cut another 4" circle inside this circle (this creates the outer circle rim).

I really enjoyed using this sketch and it works perfectly with the fab patterned papers in this month's kit.  These papers are perfect for all those summer layouts - so bright and breezy!

Looking forward to the club tonight ladies - it has been 5 weeks since we last met up (far too long).  Thanks for stopping by today.  Please leave a comment so that I know you have passed by this way.
