Celebrate Summer with new Moxxie and Karen Foster Designs

The new line of papers from Moxxiee here just in time for the upcoming Independence Day! The layout and cards I made here don't do the line justice. I made really really simple layouts here...anyone can do this. Each of the papers is double sided in gorgeous dark red/crimson, blue, and tan colors. And don't forget to add your prized embellishment....I used stickles and Glossy Accents of course! And, while I used this paper for a 4th of July layout, I'm heading back to the store to get more for other purposes...the paper is just so beautiful!

After fireworks and BBQs with friends, our favorite summer activities involve hot days and water. I had so much fun remembering one of Harrison's first times at the Hamilton Lowe Aquatic Center. He has never been afraid of water, and even a spray in the face couldn't keep him from the frog slide!

Can you spot my favorite embellishments and techniques in this layout??

My daughter and her friend got in on the water balloon fight and sprinkler action in our front yard with all the neighborhood boys. Aren't they adorable? In this simple layout, you might be thinking the turquoise dots (sets of 3) are brads. Nope. Stickles. Tricky, huh?

Sigh. I love summer. Okay, mainly, I love the swimming part, the bbq part, and the Fourth of July part. I'm moving somewhere that is always summer, so I'm going to have to get on it and bbq and swim more, I guess. It's a hard life. :-)

I just love these! Blue paper is calling my name.

Your beading was so very clever as well as the stickles brads.

Super cute!

Great job Anita! The color combination of both layouts are so "summery" (don't think that is a word!) Fun ribbon accent - need to get out my Tim Holtz stapler and start using it!!
