You're My Sunshine & Summer Fun | Sue Plumb

Hello Flutterby friends & fans!
Sue Plumb here today to share TWO projects with you that I created with the recently released 'Good Vibes Only' collection - a layout AND a pocket page! The layout was actually created for this month's challenge at Scrap the Girls, which just happens to be sponsored by Flutterby Designs - yay! I thought what better way to document lots of photos from this fun day out at a music festival with my best friend, than by creating a complimentary pocket page to sit alongside it in my album. 

Here's a look at the layout first...

I used the gorgeous 'Ray of Sunshine' paper from the 'Good Vibes Only' 12x12" paper pack as the base; then I cut a variety of pieces from the coordinating Everyday Etc cards and filler cards, and arranged them in a patchwork style on my page. I then used my sewing machine to add some subtle stitching before adding my photo on top.

On top of my layers, I added a couple of phrase stickers from the 'Good Vibes Only' Sticky Quote sheet, which I also then stitched over the top of. Above those, I added a Charms Creations heart.
I also added the fuck I love you babe quote sticker from the 'Mad About You' Sticky Quotes sheet directly onto my photo.

My title was created using the sunshine word from the 'Good Vibes Only' Die Cut Bits & Bobs pack, combined with you're my cut from a white Tiny Sticky Quote. I also added the stitching through the die cut word to tie in with the rest of my page.

I used the little pina colada image from one of the Everyday Etc cards, and HAD to use the super cute pina colada flair button alongside it. (Pina Coladas are my absolute favourite cocktail and my bestie and I have shared MANY of them together, so it had extra significance putting it on this page.)

As I mentioned earlier I had many more photos from this day I wanted to document and I was having waaay too much fun with this collection too, so I moved on to creating a complimentary pocket page.

When working with pocket pages, I always start by printing the photos I want to include and laying them out on top of the pockets. I had already looked through all the Everyday Etc cards and filler cards from the collection and sorted a pile that coordinated; so it was simply a matter of trying them out and finding an arrangement I was happy with before I started sticking things down.

Some of the additional Flutterby items I used in my pockets included Sticky Quotes (from both the 'Good Vibes Only' and 'Xtreme Teen' sheets); Blackboard Sticky Quotes; 'Good Vibes Only' Die Cut Bits & BobsTeal Sticky Alphas; and Rainbow Heart Stickers.

I also used one of the super cool acrylic words that comes in the 'Good Vibes Only' Kit; along with a few enamel dots (because enamel dots go with evvverything, right?!)

I was really happy with how this fun page turned out; and it served as a great reminder that I need to make this sort of complimentary page more often for my album. It's fabulous (and easy) way to include multiple photos on a spread.

If you missed out on the 'Good Vibes Only' range when it was released, never fear, there is still some left! Head over to the Flutterby Designs shop and grab it while you can - such a fun collection to document your summer memories!
