Puddle Jumper & Wave Rider: Summer Layout

We're fortunate to live fairly close to the beach, about a 4-hour drive, and when Spring fever strikes, it's hard to resist the pull of the shore. 

The ocean water was pretty chilly this April day, but it didn't stop my 6-year-old from jumping in. He was particularly anxious to try skimboarding. After a few tips from a fellow boarder, he was on his way. 

The water themed papers and icons from the May Creative Kit at My Creative Scrapbook were perfect for this layout. I used a sheet of blue patterned paper as my backdrop and created waves on top with kraft paper. 

I handcut the waves. Nothing fancy, then stitched them down, creating a pocket in the bottom wave for my photos. 

I tucked a series of photos in the wave pocket and stitched them in place. Then I added a a title and a few embellishments to the bottom wave. 

At the top of the layout, I created a cluster of stickers on a journaling card to balance the page. On the left, I added a shipping tag with a bit of strip journaling. 

Here'a another look at the full layout: 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'll be back on Monday with one more layout from this kit. 


  1. Gorgeous!!! I love that wave pocket at the bottom. So clever!

  2. This is gorgeous! LOVING the colors, the photos and loving how you did the sand pocket!!!!!!!!!

  3. Hi Izzy! Just stopping by to wish you a very Happy Mother's Day! I hope it is a wonderful one for you! And wow! I just love your summer page - it makes me long for summer. We are having summer-like weather here right now. Take care of YOU, my friend! HUGS!!!

  4. So many things to love about this page, Izzy. Loving how you created the waves, not only with the cardstock, but also how you staggered the letters in your title. The cluster in the corner is such a sweet combo and the journaling tag is tops too. :)
