Summer Fun "Guest Designer" Wednesday

Hello Crafty Friends! Welcome to Luv Scrapping Together!

I am absolutely thrilled to be this week's Summer Fun "Guest Designer" at September Ninth. I have been following Ruthie's blog for quite some time and I am always inspired to create when I visit. She is a real sweetheart and is always sharing her creativity. Another thing that happens to me when I visit is I frequently purchase the cute SVG files that she is always using to create. She is such an enabler!! :)

When I think of summer I think of the sun and fun. With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to put together a layout with a Luau type theme. Now, I haven't been to a Luau recently and have no pictures for this layout but it will be ready when I do. :) Besides, I just had to use these lanterns!

These lanterns are from an svg file called Luau. It can be purchased from SVGAttic. It has more than lanterns in the set and just so you can see, here is the rest of the layout!

The frame, torch, and flowers all came from that same set. I also used Life is a Beach Cricut cartridge for my hula girl and title. The font on this cartridge does not have a shadow so I just off-set the letters to create a bit of a shadow. Here is a closer view of the title:

And here is a close up of my little hula girl:

Isn't she sweet! I just love my Peachy Keen face stamps. I used PK-560 Dolly Dumplins face assortment.

Here is a few more details:

 All of my cuts were inked with Ranger distress ink in Brushed Corduroy. I used a Stampin Up! punch for my edges on my patterned paper. I forgot to check who designed my patterned paper but it was from Joann's open stock. I added a little gem to my hula girl's flower in her hair and used orange Stickles for the centers on her lei. I did have to do a little doodling with my white gel pen. :) I used foam tape to pop up the lanterns, bambo frame and my hula girl. I also added some dark brown twine for my hanging lanterns.

I hope you like it! It was so much fun to put together!

I want to thank Ruthie for having me as a guest designer!

Please visit her bog, September Ninth. You will be inspired!

Happy Crafting!
