We are heading into Summer, warmer weather, ice cream. and all things sunny and nice. And, though I am not in the USA, the new Hometown USA collection is perfect to document your adventures, Summer stories, and others. Let's take at I have created for my first project with it

Though the color combination is true Americana, it also vibrant and so ideal for documenting one of those infamous Covid family picnics.

I started by choosing simple patterns from the 12x12 papers, and trimmed them into chevrons. I set them at the very top of white cardstock. I wanted them to point directly to the photos of the kids spending time together.

Next, I used the 6x6 paper pad to frame the photos, and set them in place. I added just a few embellishments around the photos themselves, but decided to create a large title that will help balance the page.

I love Chit Chat packs, there is always a sentiment that matches the story. I combined a few extra pieces from the Bits and Pieces and Odds & Ends packs to make the title pop a bit more.

To tie everything together, I added a few of the little birds and sprinkles all over each of the clusters. I love how the silver foiling just pops amongst these colors.

I hope this inspires you to get your memories ready to document them with the beautiful Hometown USA collection! XO
