A Jillibean Summer Red Raspberry Soup Layout

Hello there!  Today I have a summer layout to share using some older photos.  I've had these photos printed and paired with a sketch for almost four years so when Jillibean Soup released their Summer Red Raspberry Soup collection awhile back I just knew it would be perfect for these.

To make my title and some fun little matching raspberries I used THIS and THIS cutting file by Miss Kate's Cuttables.  I decided to "dress" them down a bit and didn't cut out the middle layer to make them more closely resemble the berries in the paper.

Since the leaves, berry outlines and thin scripty title would have most likely shredded cardstock cut at this size, I turned to some of my Silhouette vinyls to cut them out.

For my sketch I used THIS great sketch by Becky Fleck from Summer 2011 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today.  I hope I've inspired you to pull out some old photos and scrapbook them too!  :)

Interested in the products I used to create my projects today?  To make supplies easier for you to find, I have listed them below (affiliate links included).
