'I Heart Summer' Layout by Narelle

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Narelle has created a lovely layout to share today. I hope it gets you feeling crafty too!

Note 1-  All papers and embellishments are inked before adhering.
Note 2-  The photo on this layout has been raised off the page using foam tape, however this step can be omitted if a flatter layout is preferred.

1.  Use Simple Stories "I heart summer" #3204 "sunshine and laughter" as the base.   
2.  Use a scalpel to cut along lower edge of yellow swag so that paper can be inserted underneath it.
3.  From #3215 "6x12 page elements", select the cloud paper and trim to 21.5cm.   Cut out the clouds from left over and keep aside.
4.  From other side of the #3215 "6x12 page elements", cut out the "so much fun" banner. 
5.  Mat a 6x4" photo on black side of the remaining paper from  #3215.
6.  From #3213 "4x4 quote"  cut floral panel and adhere 2cm from left edge and 2cm from bottom edge of layout.
7.  Adhere cloud panel under yellow swag and 4cm from left edge.
8.  From the #3214 "Title Strip elements", trim the dots border strip- to 24 x 4.5cm and adhere 7cm from lower edge.
9.  Select the scalloped black Border sticker from #3202 "Fundamentals cardstock stickers" and adhere, starting 3cm from right edge and 20cm from top edge.
10.  Adhere photo 9cm from top and 4.5cm from left.
11.  Adhere the two clouds that were fussy cut from step 3 in the top left left and l;ower right corners, overlapping the photo.  
12.  Add the banner that was fussy cut in step 4, over the top of the cloud in the lower right corner.
13.  Add some stickers to embellish the layout.
