Swim PL Insert | Colorcast Designs

Hey everybody !

I am back for another blog post today. I am so sorry that it has been so long. Summer's are always
super crazy.

Today I have a summery insert to share with you. These photos are from last year when we spent the late afternoon and evening in the pool. I used a lot of embellishment pieces from Color Cast Designs and created this insert for my DT assignment. Here is a look of the first side.

Typically when I add an insert into my album I will use a pocket page that it is shorter than 12x12. This one is from Becky Higgins. It has a row of 3x4's and then a row of 4x4's. I thought that it would be a fun change and a little bit of a challenge.

This first journaling card is from Studio Calico. I added that wood circle from Color Cast Designs and also that blue arrow from Simple Stories. I added some journaling to the bottom of the card about how Maddie was pretending she was a whale.  ( The photo below is of her blowing water out of her whale hole)

Next up is this filler card. This one kind of acts as a title card. I cut up that fun circle/bubble card and added a circle in the middle. The colors on this card were perfect for my photos. In the middle of the circle I added that blue acrylic piece from Color Cast Designs.

One the bottom row I have a simple filler card and a photo.

Let's move on to the other side of the insert.

This top photo is of Katelyn trying to SURF across the pool on her pool floatie. Next to the photo is a filler card from Studio Calico.

The next row I decided that I wanted to have a photo that went all the way across both pockets. I cropped it to 4x7 in photoshop and printed it out. In the left hand corner I added some embellishments. I used another wood circle from Color Cast Designs. All of the pieces from Color Cast Designs that I have used are from the same set. It is called Sunkissed. You can find it here.

The last row has a journaling card and another photo.

I cut down this card and added some journaling about us swimming in the pool. Also about how the kids have been watching American Ninja Warrior. They have come up with obstacles using the pool and the pool floaties.  I used a circle punch to cut up this photo of Katelyn and Patrick in the pool.

I loved putting this insert together. Thanks for coming everybody. I do want to say that I do have a Process Video up on my Youtube channel. So check that out if your interested.
