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

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.

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.
