scrappy share: june citrus twist kits + cameo

This month I found the perfect scrapbooking marriage...Citrus Twist June kits and the Cameo! These Instagram photos are some of my favorites from the past month, taken during one of our evening walks along the river. I needed to find a way to add the colors and patterns of the 6x6 paper pack in this month's Project Life kit without overwhelming the softly edited photos. After seeing so many inspiration scrapbook layouts using Cameo cut backgrounds, it was on my list to try. Browsing through my cut library I saw a hexagon and though it would be a simple, classic design to pair with my square photos.

I set to work creating the repetitive design in opposite corners of the page and, after careful measuring, set to cut. Then it was time to choose the patterns. I loved the pink floral because it played off of the blooms in two of the photos, the yellow triangles added sunshine, wood grain for a natural element and the painted boards for the path/walkway. Adding in a few other favorites from the pack selection and I was ready to cut and piece them all together.

I cut each hexagon, adding it to a piece of scrap cardstock to be adhered behind the page. When they were all in the correct spaces and secured, I added just a few embellishments - chipboard arrows, puffy stickers and that fun metal clip!

This layout was more time intensive than my usual, with all of the piecing, but so worth the end result! Thanks for looking :)
