Hi Cherries! Today I am sharing the process of a layout I made using the July Cherry Box. The Cherry Box is a monthly paper crafting subscription that is filled with goodies you'll love. This box features the "Golden Coast" collection which is great for your beachy and warm summer projects. Watch the video below to watch this layout come together!
I started by sprinkling some of the pink mica powder onto my white page and misting it with a mini mister. Both of these items are also in the Cherry Box. I edited my photos a little bit so they would have more pink tones in them to match the collection better.
Next, I used my 6x6 paper pad to rip strips to go along the top half of the page. I was not worried about the line in the center where the papers met because I knew I would either cover it up with something else or thought would not be too noticeable. I also layered some old book pages into the strips.
I added some of the ripped pages around the corners of my layout and layered it up with the ephemera and stickers. I also added more of the mica powder in these areas.
To make the title, I used the Alpha Stickers in the Cherry Box and stuck them on top of Cherry Foam Dots to have a little more dimension. I finished off the layout by adding some crystal dots and beads from the box. I am so happy with how this turned out and love the soft, beachy feel this collection has.

What do you do when you have leftover punched circles from a previous project? If you are anything like me, you do not like to waste your scraps! Use those leftover circles and create embellishments with them!
I have been working with the Fancy Pants Designs Homegrown Summer collection and had a bunch of left-over punched circles left. I decided to distress them and layer them up to create a cute little flower. For the center of the layered circle flowers, I added a wood button from the Hometown Summer collection!
Instead of going with a 12x12 scrapbook layout, I went with an 8.5x11 size. I trimmed down a piece of the Fresh Picked pattern paper from the Homegrown Summer collection to 8.5x11. I then added a piece of white textured cardstock that I trimmed down just a little bit smaller than 8.5x11.
I added the cute circle flower embellishments down the page in a fun vertical design. To keep everything flowing I kept the smaller embellishments along the same line as the circle florals. For my title, I pulled out some alphas from my stash that matched the blue in the Homegrown Summer collection. This layout is very simple but I just love how it turned out! The flow of the embellishments down the center of the page is so fun. I finished off the layout by adding my typed journaling.
