I am back with another fun layout creation. Once every quarter our Design Team joins forces and creates incredible packs for just $1! The best part? All the packs follow a theme and color palette. For us layout artists, this means we can mix & match to our hearts content.

I’ve done just that using the newest coordinated collection Summer Hangout. Follow along as I add one Designer at a time to my layout. I’m creating in Adobe Elements but honestly, you can mix & match in any software.

I’ve started with my own, Schwarzwald Designs, simple Clutter-It page. Clutter-Its are PNG quickpages just waiting for your photos & elements. These are ideal for using the $1 coordinated collection Summer Hangout packs.

I’ve added my own photos and elements here. This is my sister, Manon, and I hiking the Vintar Gorge in Slovenia. We had to wear hairnets under our helmets and I love the lunch lady look LOL!

I’m a huge lover of flowers, both on layouts and out in the wild. Neia Scraps flower & leaf pack is the very first pack I grabbed out of the entire Summer Hangout collection.

I needed some beautiful butterflies, and Sekada Designs had just what I wanted. I also added her word art, paint splash, brad & a couple of flowers. You can never have too many flowers!

I’d thought that the paint from Sekada & already on the Clutter-It would be enough. I was wrong. Luckily Mixed Media by Erin had me covered with some fantabulous painty bits!

I’m also a sucker for ribbons. This layout needed a ribbon. I fell in love with the wonderful dark blue ribbon tucked into Lori Fortini’s pack. I love the contrast it gives the page. I also added her journal card & pink flowers for another pop of color.

I needed a little oomph & organic-y-ess to my layout. I found just what it needed in Joyful Heart Designs elements pack. The twigs & brad add a little neutral that grounds the layout.

And, oops, honestly, I’d added Aimee Harrisons messy edges way back at the beginning of my scrapbooking session. I forgot to take a screenshot. I think this messy edge completely makes the page!

I. Am. Done.

A little reminder, Summer Hangout is on sale for $1 a pack through July 14, 2024.
