Layout Lookback | July

Hello friends! and hello August! Here in NYC, we do not go back to school until the first week of September- which means there are a few precious weeks left for us of summer vacation.  Of course, as mom, I have to keep an eye to the school calendar I know will be here all to soon- but the kids don’t need to know that. No matter how frantic I may be working behind the scenes- (hello? Tuition payments? Book and uniform orders? Can we say buzz kill?) for all they know- these are the lazy hazy days of summer! That’s we do, right? Orchestrate the vibes. #momlife

Even though I was able to sneak a few days off last month- I was thrilled to be able to introduce one of my favorite summer designs to the shop- Hometown Summer. 

And I could tell you all had fun with it too! Many of the layouts in my gallery this month featured this design- here are a few I wanted to share with you – they capture the happy feeling of summer so perfectly! 


Another summertime fav fave that filled the gallery was Poolside!  And I loved all the notes I received from you guys telling em how you added the Fancy Pants paper version of this design! I have to admit- eve I get a bit giddy when I can see my designs come off the screen and translate to print I can use my scissors and glue with! Here are a few paper and digi layouts made with that collection this month:

what joy will you create today?
