It's Not Too Late for Summer Scrappin!

School is about to start up again, and if you had summer memories such as a camping trip or beach vacation to remember, there are some great summer themed papers for scrapbooks I wanted to share here. If you want to scrap your trip to the seashore, or maybe a visit to Grandma's the sunny Summer collections will be a wonderful choice to use to create warm memories. There some tropical scrapbook papers to choose from, too (for those lucky enough to have recently visited the tropics or Hawaii).

Maybe you are like me and haven't gone anywhere this summer (boo hoo!) there is a nice general summer theme from Bo Bunny called the Summer Cottage Collection.

Everyone Into The Pool!

Or maybe you've gone to the pool this summer - well there are some nice swimming pool and swim team scrapbook papers with a Summer "swimming fun" theme: Carolee's Creations Adornit - Summer Collection and swimming collection or Reminisce Swimming Collection.


Surf's Up!

These papers have a tropical look and a surfer theme with orange and aqua colors: Bo Bunny “Peachy Keen Collection.

A Day at the Beach

With the colors of the beach (blue for water and tan for sandy beaches) Creative Imaginations’ Art Warehouse by Danelle Johnson has a Beach Collection (nice paisley design) and a Swim Collection:

For digital scrapbooking, there are photorealistic papers to buy and download such as this e-kit of digital paper designs called Seashore or the Sea Swept digital page kit.

A Shore Thing Collection from Imaginesce has some really cute and fun beach themed papers.

Sandylion has some designs I particularly love since it includes a boating and fishing theme – it’s called the “At the Coast Collection.”

And Karen Foster papers has a Fishing Collection which is available in single sheets or multi-sheet packs.

Camping and Outdoors Scrapbooks

For scrapbooks with a camping theme look at Carolee's Creations Adornit - Back 2 Nature Collection or the Karen Foster Outdoors Collection scrapbook paper.

And last, but not least, I wanted to show you a scrapbook kit that is great for a Summer memory book: Three Bugs in a Rug - 12x12 Caboodle Collection Kit.

When you look at your scrapbook later this Fall or when the weather turns darker and cooler your photos and journaling will warm you up.

So, as kids go back to school, take the time now to make a memory book about what you, your pets, your family, your husband, wife or significant other enjoyed most this Summer.
