It is July and it is HOT here in North Carolina where I live. Our inspiration kit this month is the Summer 2015 Crop & Create: Delivered kit. The products are perfect for documenting all those sizzling summer photographs. So when I began putting together my July kit, I started with summer in mind.
The color scheme of the inspiration kit definitely evokes summer–navy blue, yellow, aqua, and red. I immediately thought of an old Photo Freedom kit (by Stacy Julian) with similar colors that has been in my stash for years–and it was still in the package!
I added a few more summery papers–one specific yellow paper with clouds on it, like the aqua cloud paper in the inspiration kit.
Then I moved on to embellishments. I found in my stash navy blue and aqua arrows, yellow tags, die cut flowers, and even a label with a bee on it! (I just loved the puffy bee stickers in the original kit.)
Finally I gathered a few more products that I thought would coordinate well with the summer theme or the colors in the patterned papers.
One interesting fact about this kit–if you look up in the top right corner of the picture, you will see colored corrugated papers peeking out, which are actually photo mats. I have had this pack of mats for about as long as I have had the Photo Freedom kit. I still am not quite sure how I am going to use them in my projects this month! But I included this product any way–despite my trepidation–because the summery colors of the cardboard went so well with the rest of my kit.
That is it for my July kit, which I am calling Summer Sizzle. Check back later this month to see my creations!
