Scraptastic Store: September Skies

The page below was created for the Scraptastic Store and features Heidi Swapp's gorgeous collection, September Skies. The line sports papers in a variety of colors and patterns, but you know how much I love blue, so I chose to play up the navy, aqua, and lime. Stickers from Echo Park, die-cuts from Gossamer Blue, washi tape from Bella Blvd. and other fun embellishments complete the page:

This is one of my favorite uses for washi tape...and so easy: 

To assemble the banner above, several strips of washi tape were folded over twine. Then using scissors, I cut each tape into a triangular flag shape (being super careful so as not to snip the twine!)

 Gold stars bring a bit of dimension and shine to the constellation paper:

The title combines a Heidi Swapp clear acrylic word with Bella Blvd. chipboard alphas in blueberry:

Finally, I couldn't resist adding a few shimmery green sequins. Don't they look like bubbles?! 

This is a photos of my son preparing to swim in one of his very first swim meets with his team, the Sharks. In the two and a half years that he has been swimming, he has changed so much; it doesn't look like the same child! "Eat, Sleep, Swim" alludes to how big a part of his life this sport has become. 

Here is a supply list from the Scraptastic Store: Patterned Paper (Heidi Swapp's September Skies Collection-Open Air Paper, Star Gazing Paper, Mountain Trail Paper, Echo Park's Creative Agenda-3x4 Journaling Cards Paper), Die-cuts (Jillibean Soup-Here's The Story Mini Placemats, Gossamer Blue-On My Desk Gold Foil Die-cuts), Echo Park Creative Agenda Element Stickers, Heidi Swapp Clear Acrylic Words, Simple Stories DIY Christmas Letters, Bella Blvd Amorie Chipboard Alpha in Blueberry, sequins, twine, and gold stars.
