SnickerdoodleDesigns has an unbelievable DEAL coming on September 26th! You are NOT going to want to miss this announcement. I can’t share the details yet, but I can share with your layouts from three kits that will be included in this deal. I will feature one kit per week so when the DEAL is here, you’ll be full of inspiration! Today let’s start with Summer Splash, especially since it’s the last official week of summer here in the United States.

Snickerdoodle Designs   and My Memories

I, for one, am not ready to say goodbye to summer so I was excited to look through the galleries for layouts using this gorgeous kit. I’ll show you just a few here now.

I like the clever title in this page by Renee. The way she clipped the paper to the font to create her unique title is very creative. Her design is eye-&catching and the large, outlined water drops support her theme. The bunches of small balloons look just right tucked into the clusters of felt flowers. 

The masked and framed photo takes center stage in Linda’s layout. I like the way she added the paint to the dotted paper to bring out more of the green. The water splash extending from the photo appears as a trail for the butterfly. The beach ball supports the large cluster which is beautifully shadowed.

I’m enchanted by the sweet series of photos in this layout by Kythe. I like the way she blended two of the kit papers and limited her palette predominantly to the blues in the kit. The diagonal cluster she created is so delicate and pretty. Tying the flower bouquet to the vine with the lovely blue ribbon is so clever as is adding the straight ribbons behind the photos. 

This monochromatic layout by Norma is so striking. The masked photo is quite glamorous and surrounding it with elements adjusted to black and white adds to the mystery. I like the way she kept just a pop of color in the sunglasses, the edges of the frame, and the splash of paint.

This layout by Kay presents an entirely different look. She combined some of the pinks in the kit. I like the way she split the page horizontally with the striped ribbon. The out-of-bounds treatment she applied to her photo as well as stacking and duplicating it, makes it the focal point of her page. Her clusters are so pretty and I like the way the wave cutouts work to support them. The diagonally placed umbrella adds interest to the mostly horizontal design.

The pocket page design used by Rochelle works well to showcase a variety of photos. It also allows for combining so many of the pretty papers in the kit. The clusters are placed in a triangular arrangement to walk the eye around the page. I like the funky title work she created in keeping with the lighthearted photos on her page.

I hope I have not only inspired you but piqued your interest for things to come. Please check back next week for the second kit in the series. Thanks for reading along and have a great week.
