Inspiration by Gwyneth - July - Summer Fun Season

Good Morning Everybody!

Hi everybody.

I'm back again with a digital scrapbook layout.

July and August have been declared as our "Summer Fun Season" across this Dragons Lair Designs Inspiration Blog and our Facebook Fan Group.  And where better to have some fun this summer than out in the garden, either chilling or growing.

I decided to start off with a simple scrapbook layout of some flowers from our garden from years past.  Nothing very complicated, just a quick digital layout that took less than 15 minutes to put together, because I know that summer is a busy season, especially for those with children and/or gardens to take care of, and therefore there's less time to craft.  With digital scrapbooking you can put together layouts quickly and, although I've not done so on this layout, journal relevant information about the day, or holiday, or whatever, and keep a record at the time in just a few minutes.  Then, if you want, the layouts can be printed out and further decorated when time permits, to create a hybrid layout. Or even used as a guide to creating a standard scrapbook page at some time in the future.

Dragons Lair Designs has a vast range of kits for scrapbooking, from mini kits to large collections, so you are likely to find something in the right colour scheme to go with your photos, whatever is in them.

I simply chose some backgrounds and a couple of elements from my chosen kit, together with a double frame element and took them, together with my chosen photos, into My Craft Studio.  One of the double frames was turned through 90 degrees and then I just played around with the layout before saving.

These are what I used:

And that is it from me for today.
