hanging out in cocoa daisy's cabana

Here they are, the full layouts I made from the Cabana kit and add ons Striped Awning and Hammock. I thought these kits were perfect for bright and warm summery layouts, if you are on vacation or not. We happened to have the perfect vacations photos, I have a bunch more and will share eventually :)

I don't have a favorite this month, I love how they all turned out, for different reasons.

 This one because it's my sweetie and me. The trip was really good for us, we had lots of time to talk and connect again after being apart for a month with his travel and then with mine. I love how the Jillibean Soup frames worked as a background mat for the photo. Just fun :)

Uses Cabana (the letter A) and Striped Awning (everything else).

This one because it kind of tells the story of why we were in Mexico. I also love it because she looks so happy. She loves the water. She loves heat. She loves the beach.

And this one because it was a sketch from the PageMaps July sketches. We had Becky Fleck as our guest designer and to trade off, she asked 10 of our DT to guest design for PageMaps. It was really fun, I got a grid design and ended up really enjoying it. I used to do more straight line/grid sort of designs, but have strayed from that type of layout. I think it really made these photos shine and I enjoyed the process. I will do more I think :)

My favorite parts of the July kit? The glass head pins in the main were a surprise love. The Jillibean Soup corrugated words were awesome, especially on the 2 Things layout above, I covered it in turquoise Maya Mist, glue, and then dipped it in the bag of glitter. It turned out perfectly!
I also loved the yellow chipboard and turquoise foam alphabets. I will sometimes get a kit just for the alphabet. The yellow one reminds me of the Brady Bunch font a little. It's funky!

There are still a few kits left, and Christine's got a special going if you spend $75 domestic or $125 international, you can get free shipping on the 4th of July. Pretty good deal! So hurry over and get your own Cabana!

These are great- the colors are so fun!! I usually avoid the bright card stick unless it's for die cutting- pinning!
