It’s that time of the week again when I share my latest pocket scrapbooking creations!  I am still working on getting my youngest daughter’s elementary school album caught up.  Today’s page is from a pool party her Girl Scout troop held last summer.  With spring seeming so slow in coming this year, it was nice to be able to relive some summer fun as I was making this page.

For this page, I used some of the goodies I received in my March Paper Pumpkin kit.  The kit was intended to be used to make some really cute cards, but I am a bit of a rebel!  I am using it to make some fun handmade Project Life cards instead!  The pretty aqua background of the cards are just perfect for pool and beach themed scrapbook pages.  The gold foil envelope liners included the kit made a really cute punch art sun.

I started by cutting down the card bases into 3×4 inch cards.  From each card base, I was able to get (2) 3×4 cards –  one with the striped pattern and one white.

I put the gold envelope liners included in the Paper Pumpkin Kit to good used for a sun punch art embellishment.  To make the sun, I punched a 1.25 inch circle and 8 banners from one of the liners.

I then used adhesive to stick the banners around the edge of the circle to create the sun shape. Sorry for the bad picture. Since the gold foil paper is reflective, it’s hard to get a good photo of it.

For the white card, I used the fun chevron stamp included in the Paper Pumpkin kit to stamp a top and bottom border in the color Island Indigo . Then I used adhesive to stick the gold punch art sun in the middle.

For the journal card, I stamped the words “pool party” and used the chevron stamp to tie it into the other card I made.  At the bottom of the card, I added the date of the party with my my rotary date stamp.

It was quick and easy, but I just love how this pool party page turned out!  So tell me… What have you been scrapbooking lately?
