Summer Ice Cream Layout

There are so many fantastic layouts popping up in my Instagram feed with the Summer Lights collection, I decided to give it a go. I've had zero ideas lately but at least I knew which picture would match my paper so that is where I started. I also played along with the Paper Issues Take 5 challenge.
I knew the popsicle paper had to be in the layout so I cut it on an angle and tried it out with different backgrounds. I played around with the frames until I got something I liked and then sewed around the layout before gluing anything down. I had a bunch of embellishment die cuts and kept adding more but didn't want it to just be die cuts so I found some straws and white paint. That did the trick for me.
I used turquoise, die cut, patterned paper, title, border, ink, and a summer theme. I guess that's more than five.
Supplies
Pink Paislee - Summer Lights
White gesso
Paper straws
Black fine tip Sharpie pen
White thread

Beautiful Bubbles Layout for P.H.P.

I received the Color Washed Paper Pad from Paper House Productions and it is a stunner. There is so much gold foil! I made this bubble layout with my daughter in a purple polka dot dress because the paper pad has these gorgeous purple papers (which are not that common). I used a free cut file from Paper Issues and a few butterflies from the Paper House Productions Butterfly Project Pad.
All the embellishments and the title can be found in one of the paper pads making this an easy project. I didn't have to hunt through my stash to find stuff.
Here are some close-ups.
And another close-up.
Supplies

Johnny Rockets Layout

I really like how this layout turned out. We had no idea the waiters made ketchup pictures of their customers. Cosette thought it was pretty great.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the diamond shape. Then I glued some twine.

Just Hangin' Out Layout

I really like the sketch at Creative Scrappers this month. I used these pictures from the playground last summer.
Here is the sketch:
I used the ornate frame cut file from the Silhouette Store. The word 'just' is from the Silhouette Store from a title called 'just beat it'. The 'hangin out' title is from the Paper Issues Store. I'm joining the Product Spotlight at Paper Issues where you show off your summer layouts.
Supplies
Echo Park: Summer Fun
Heidi Swapp Color Shine - Butter and Teal
Silhouette Store ornate frame and just beat it cut files
Paper Issues Just the Guys cut file
White cardstock
DCWV blue cardstock
Pink and black cardstock
Simple Stories: Sunshine and Happiness stickers
Black embroidery thread
Blue brads

Friends Layout

I tried some paint with plastic packaging and splatters for this one.

 
I used clear gesso but didn't cover the whole page so maybe that is why it is bending a bit.
Supplies

Hulk Layout

Another Lego Store layout using Oh My Heart. This one came together really easily and was actually the negative cut of a different layout I was working on.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the diamond and then lined it with patterned paper. The rest was playing with embellishments.
Supplies
