Sweet summer days can speed on by, making summer just a brief memory. Other sunny days are so wonderfully relaxing – you’ll want to sit and enjoy the sun for hours -- and hope the day never ends. It can even be hard to get the energy to pick up those craft scissors and crack your album open – who wants to be indoors scrapbooking when you can be enjoying the summer air? Well bring that scrapbook outside, enjoy the sun and make a great summer scrapbook!
There are so many reasons to celebrate a summer day in your summer scrapbook. Start off your page design with the inspiration of a summer quote. Here are a few summer quotes to get your summer scrapbook started.
"Celebrate summer--sun-drenched days and starlit nights."- Gooseberry Patch
Use the Gooseberry Patch quote as part of opposing night and day scrapbooking pages. Make one page with a sunny yellow and sky blue background, complete with pictures from day outings and picnics. Then design the page opposite with a royal blue or black background, dotted with tiny stars and a big moon. Place night time camping photos on your night themed page or shots of colorful sunsets!
"What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with...no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade." - Gertrude Jekyll
We can imagine a fruitful, colorful summer page inspired by this Gertude Jekyll quote. June is of course the time when everything’s in full bloom, alive and thriving. Bright flowered pages are perfect for summer scrapbooks. Try picking your own fresh flowers to press and include in your scrapbook. Include this quote; “Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year--it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul,” from an unknown author, to start a second series of flower filled pages.
All of your summer beach memories and photos from tropical destinations will fit a gorgeous hibiscus summer scrapbook paired with the following quote: “So here’s to all those summer nights when my feet hit the sand and the waves break my fall and all my friends a round me out number the stars.” – Unknown
One final quote to inspire your summer scrapbook project: “People take pictures of the summer, just in case someone thought they had missed it, and to prove that it really existed.” - Ray Davies
