Summer Love

Hi guys, it's Lauren again. When I was growing up, the big treat in the summer was to go "down the shore"... which is New Jersey speak for a trip to the beach, no matter what geographical direction you headed to get there. I still love the sand, the surf, the sunshine, and heck, even the seagulls! Luckily, Eyelet Outlet has brads that satisfy all of my summery needs.

I've used Tall Palm Tree BradsEye Glass Brads (backed with a scrap of charcoal paper to make them sunglasses)Spring Bubble BradsSeagull BradsSun and Cloud Brads, and a single Heart Brad to capture everything I loved --and still love-- about those days!

Nowadays I spend more of my summer in the garden than at the beach, but that is equally fun!

I don't grow roses, but I definitely would if they were as lovely as this vintage applique, and attracted wildlife as beautiful as these Butterfly Brads. One of my favorite things about these guys is that they come twelve to a packet, in six colors; half of which face left and half of which face right! I've also added a few strips of Glitter Washi Tape in Copper to add some glamour to my tag.

What is your favorite thing about summer and how could you use it as inspiration for your next card or project? Be sure to check out this blog every day for a different designer's perspective, not to mention LOTS of amazing inspiration! ♥
