So, while we are heating up here in the US, others are trying to get themselves warm! So, for this month’s One Kit, I wanted to focus on something with WARM colors. I thought Vicki’s kit “Summertime” would be perfect for this!
We could scrap fun in the sun and others could pull it for fireplaces and campfires! There are a lot of great colors to work with in this kit.
Here is what the team came up with for layouts!
Flor said, “Vicky’s kit screams summer to me. Love the warm colors. The sun reflections and the colors are a perfect match. The doilies are the perfect feminine touch.”
Diane picked up on the vibrant colors and matched it with some photos! “I saw bright orange, I thought of my street art pictures, taken last weekend in the Mission in San Francisco. I have a lot more, but I picked 3 particularly ‘orange’ pieces of art. I liked how the doodly nature of the elements and frames perfectly matched the style of the art. This was an easy peasy page!”
Cindy scrapped one for us too! She said, “I love bright colors and my favorite color is red, so this kit had my name written all over it. While looking through my photos, I knew this flower photo was the perfect photo for the kit as the colors would set off the beauty of the flower.”
Trista found a great summer layout to scrap using the kit: “Since the kit was called SummerTime I dug through my pile of summer photos from last year and found this one of my DD bravely jumping into the pool during a luau party in our back yard. With that photo in mind, I chose a yellow bg to represent the summer sunshine and began layering flags and arrows from the kit under the photo and frame to create a banner. I didn’t like how harsh the photo appeared against the solid bg so I used a patch of paint over the photo and blended it to my liking. Finally I added a doodled border and some other finishing touches.”
And summer means one thing for a lot of people – BASEBALL! It’s our first year of playing ball, but it will take up much of our summer. Especially since my son’s uniform has orange, I thought the kit would compliment the picture I took of him. I found a paper that contrasted nicely and picked out elements that weren’t too girly, but had some orange in them to pop against his uniform. I also grabbed a clip art baseball from a Google Image Search.
If you like this kit and want to see even more ways to use it, there are lots of others from Vicki’s Designer Spotlight when she released the kit last summer. Like this one from Diane!
