I have a layout to share with you today that I made for the American Crafts July Gallery.
I had this fun picture that I took when we recently visited the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. The ride was called Sea Swings and I loved the bright colors and shape - so I just had to snap a pic!
I started out my page by punching out paper squares and then folding two sides inwards, I love this technique and the texture it adds. I added some machine stitching, stickers and embellishments to finish it off.

My Second layout that I made for the gallery this month uses a basic grid design. I use a lot of textures, patterns and shapes on my projects and sometimes it's nice just to go back to a basic, simple grid design.
I centered my layout around this photo of a lifeguard station that I took on the beach and built my grid design around it.
I added one of American Crafts fun photo overlays on top of my picture, some machine stitching and some fun embellishments.
