Pretty Little Studio - Tropical Hello

Summer's in full swing! Can you believe it's July already? The big 4th celebrations are just a few days away! Have you gone on any road trips yet? Maybe a few days off staycation from work? This time of year I'm drawn to the bright colors you'll find in the Pretty Little Studio Summer Vibes Collection. The collection has a fun hand drawn look with images from warm places like tropical flowers and cactus. 

I started with a background of colorful stripes and hearts. When patterns seem like they are blending together too much I always add strips of solid card stock. This time I used strips of pattern paper in darker/more solid patterns (the teal plaid and navy stripe cut apart from Awesome Flags).

Next I added a floral die called "Fuchsia". I love that it's printed and cut out - ready to use. I adhered it with adhesive foam tape to add a little dimension to my card. 

I added an All Day, Every Day flair to the top of the card along the plaid stripe. Don't you love that shine? It's like candy for the eyes! Each pack of flairs has 6 different designs to choose from. They're all so tempting! Pretty Little Studio has so many sequin colors to choose from too! You're sure to find the perfect color to use on all your projects. My "go to" is always the Crystal because they go with everything!

The fun die cut hello sentiment is from the Here & There Collection Here Die Cut Pack. Both collections are from the same designer Heather Adams (Hello Heather) so they mix together perfectly! 

Let the Summer Vibes Collection take you on a sweet escape!
