Create a scrapbook page out of colored cardstock. Die-cut Ribbon Circle out of cardstock, highlight with a Versamark pen and adhere to page. Mat patterned paper on cardstock and adhere to page. Die-cut Decorative Swirls out of cardstock and adhere to page. Crop photo to size and adhere to page. Die-cut letters out of cardstock using the Summer Block alphabet, mat on cardstock and adhere to page. Die-cut Citrus Wedge & Slice and Watermelon Slice out of cardstock and glitter paper, layer colors adhere to page. For added dimension, emboss the Watermelon Slice using an embossing folder and embellish Watermelon rind with a Versamark Pen.

How about a savory strawberry card?  Or some fun Summertime Paper?

Create a card base out of cardstock and layers of patterned paper. Tie a ribbon around card front. Die-cut Strawberries out of cardstock, layer colors and adhere to card front. Embellish with jewels, buttons and string.

Don't you just love the beach? How about creating a mini book to show off your adventures! We have an amazing On the Coast Paper Pack to go with it. Or how about a cute album to get you started?

Die-cut Album pages out of chipboard backed with cardstock. Trim photos to size, mat on cardstock and adhere album pages. Die-cut shapes out of cardstock, layer and adhere to pages. Bind pages together with a metal ring. Embellish with ribbon.

Who can resist watermelon in the summer? Doesn't it just hit the spot? Give away a little sweetness this summer with this super cute Watermelon Gift Bag!

Use sewing machine to add decorative trim to the bottom of the Watermelon Slice. Embellish with a button, flower, string and ribbon. Adhere embellished Watermelon Slice to Bag. Die-cut Phrase, Sweet out of cardstock and adhere to the Bag.

And just for kicks and giggles, let's bring some of that summer fun inside with this adorable Bird and Branches lamp!

I love the watermelon purse! I have a friend who grew up on a watermelon farm, and collects watermelon items, it would be perfect for her. And anyway, doesn't watermelon just say SUMMER to you? It certainly does to me!
