Are you ready for summer yet? If not perhaps this fun grid-style summer scrapbook layout created by Designer Marjan Pel will do the trick! We love the way she’s mixed patterned paper up for a fun look.
Last summer we had this beach vacation in the Netherlands. Zandvoort aan Zee is one of the major beach resorts of the Netherlands. It has a long sandy beach, bordered by coastal dunes. The kids loved it there! They played in the sand all day long. We had a lot of warm and sunny days during this summer vacation and we spent most of the time at the beach.
I wanted to scrap a fun scrapbook page about one day at the beach. First I cut my normal sized 4 x 6 pictures into squares because I wanted to use an easy grid design for my page. I used several yellow and blue designed patterned papers from different collections to make some sunburst cards.
I sewed vellum squares on 3 of them to give it an eclectic look.
I embellished the scrapbook layout with coordinating stickers and golden rub-ons. To give some of these embellishments a bit of a dimension I used little foam adhesives. The gold of some of the stickers and rub-ons remembers me of the color of the sun. For me sun is not only yellow, but has different shades of yellow and gold!
I just love summer and when I look at this scrapbook page I really can remember those warm and sunny days at the beach from Zandvoort aan Zee!

What a fun layout!
It really draws me in and puts me in a happy vacation mood! 🙂
Sunbursts, vellum, sewing and all those clusters – there is so much going on here that is fun to discover, yet the strict grid gives the overall design something solid and familiar.
Ein tolles Layout !! So schön bunt und die Papierchen sind soo toll aufeinander abgestimmt!! Die quadratische Anordnung gefällt mir auch sehr!!
