Fresh Summer Days - DS52


It was love at first sight the moment I saw the Summer Fresh line by Simple Stories. I dug in right away for this week's Deconstructed Sketch sample. Number 52 -- can you believe?



I have to confess that symmetry usually wigs me out, but I really enjoyed working with this one. For the circle panel, I created a sweet, summer scene using the Grass Border, Pinwheel, and Clouds Border CutUps dies from The Cat's Pajamas.



The sentiment is just a layering of printed elements from the Summer Fresh pad. Not even a speck of stamping today. Two other TCP CutUps dies play supporting roles ... the red oval in the sentiment stack was done with one of the Circus Labels dies and the ivory scallop borders along the top and bottom of that blue floral horizontal band were done with the Queen of Hearts border. All of the TCP CutUps can be found HERE.
