Oh Crate Paper, Poolside, I love you so much. I actually bought every single piece of this line and that is saying a lot considering I barely know how to swim. :) I just love the colours in this line and as always, the embellishments are just amazing.
I think my favourite thing from the entire line is the pack of wood buttons that also came with some enamel dots a few adhesive paper die cuts. It was so hard not use all the enamel dots on this page! I used one of the gold metal tabs on my photo and tucked a frame behind it. I added a few pieces from the ephemera pack, stand outs, and the 12x12 chipboard stickers.
I wanted to use the ice cream paper on my layout, but I didn't want my layout to be ice cream cones everywhere, so I layered a piece of the gold glitter plus sign vellum over top. I love the way vellum over top of patterned paper looks. I also used the Sun-Kissed Thickers for my title and added a hand cut word from ombré paper to complete it.
If there is a black striped paper in a line, I am going to use it along the bottom of my layout. I love how it 'grounds' the page. I layered a camera from the ephemera pack, a tag from the cut apart paper and a wood veneer.
I took a bunch of the banner pieces from the 6x12 sticker sheet and sewed them beneath my photo and added in a diet cut from the ephemera. I layered an ice cream cone from the standouts with one from the 6x12 sticker sheet as well.
