Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop - September Edition!






Welcome to the SG Blog Hop for September, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link.


Now that it is September; school is back in session, the Texas heat will soon be dying down (I hope!) and this means that summer is coming to a close very soon. I thought it would be fun to do a little re-cap of my favorite things from this summer. I absolutely adore the Simple Stories "I {heart} Summer" collection, so it was an easy decision to use that line for this layout. It is so colorful and fun to work with! The way I did the paper behind the title is a lift from a scrappy friend, Maria (Tinkgumby) - isn't it a great idea?!





The sketch I used for this layout is from the Sketch Fusion sketch book. I am in love with this sketch book and it is so versatile. It was made in conjunction with Simple Stories collections, but it is so easy to adapt and use other scrapbooking manufacturers as well.


You can find the SG sketches in their books and as downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.


Next on the hop is Steffanie, leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store. The winner will be drawn on September 9th, so you have one week to leave a comment.


In case you get lost at any point, here is the list of all the blogs:
