Happy Wednesday, friends! Missy here, and I'm sharing a new layout today using two flair buttons from the Tropical Flair set. I love creating beach and Summer layouts, so I was excited to finally scrap this amazing photo from our trip to Maho Bay, St. Maarten back in December 2015. The airport is on the other side of the shore, and the planes come in super low and they feel like they're going to land on your head! It is so cool to watch them land and take off. I snapped this photo while we were having lunch at the beach. I used the new On a Whim collection from Amy Tangerine for this, and it was perfect for my photo. These flair were just waiting for me to use on this page :) I did some gesso work on the background, which is a sandy colored cardstock. I used lots of blue and aqua Shimmerz as well as some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine with plastic packaging to create some interest behind my cut files. I found a fun font I liked and created the title in my Silhouette software, did an offset and cut the letters. I backed them with papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad.
I've had this cute flip flop flair for so long, and this was the perfect page. I added some foam under the cut file so it is raised up a little bit to create some dimension. I just glued the flair right on top with a little nest of yellow thread under it.
I layered this flair right on the edge of the photo. I layered a cute pineapple die cut and pink thread here to ehco the tropical theme. I'm obsessed with these bright color!
Those cute flowers overlapping the photo here are actually clear stickers. To keep them true to color, I backed them with white cardstock and fussy cut them out. I love that there are shiny gold clear stickers in this collection!
They went so nicely with my sandy colored background and gold hints on the background.
I love the shadowing that adhesive foam creates on a layout. Just by giving the big title a small lift, so much depth is created.
Here's one more close-up of the top area. I added more thread here and a cute subtitle from the clear sticker sheet.
Here is the Tropical Flair Set:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
