Welcome into the 8th month of Celebrate the Seasons here at Two Peas!

For the August seasonal layout, we're documenting those summer vacations that so many of us seem to take during the summer months. Whether it's a big family vacation, a weekend getaway or even a staycation, let's get those memories scrapbooked!

This month's sketch has room for up to 10 photos. You can substitute a journaling block in place of a photo or even use a larger photo instead of the smaller ones if that works better for your photos.

Click here for class PDF with instructions and photos.

This month your challenge is to use a border on your layout. There are so many borders to choose from: sticker & rub-on borders, patterned paper or cardstock borders, create a border of accents, use a border punch or die cut machine to create your own, etc.

To participate:

  • Create a 1 or 2 page layout using some sort of texture.
  • Layout can Digital, Traditional or a Hybrid.
  • You are not required to use the sketch.
  • You may scrap any theme/holiday but try to stick to a summer celebration or activity (whatever says "vacation", "summer" or "August" to you or your family. Family birthday's and celebrations (i.e. anniversaries, reunions, etc. are all good).
  • Submit your layout by uploading to the gallery by September 4, 2009 11:59 EST. Don't forget to click the box next to this class (Celebrate the Seasons August 2009).


I will pick a winner randomly from all the submissions to win a Gift Certificate to Two Peas and post the winner on the Education Board on September 5th. For every submission to this class you will earn a badge. Fun!

Don't forget to share links to your layouts right here on this thread!

The sketch looks great -- I can hardly wait to get started but I have more summer fun planned for next week so there will be more pictures to choose from.

Nicole, I have really enjoyed your class this year. I am wondering if you could show us how you get your printing lined up on the actual background paper of your project. I can never seem to get it lined up as perfect as you do. I am just wondering if you have some secrets to make this easier.

here is my LO. Thanks for this sketch. Very nice to be able to use the 4 x 6 pictures without cutting. This is my first shot at this challenge. I used stuff from my Becky higgins school kit.

Hi Nichol - thanks for another great design this month. I really love your class! I posted layouts from January and June. Maybe I'll get August completed before the next month goes up.

Here is my layout for this class. I didn't have any summer photos that I wanted to scrap for this month because they have been scrapped elsewhere =) But I did get my computer in the summer last year so I decided to do that instead.

I wanted to copy the August LO but I had a problem with my photos I wanted to use so I won't be able to complete that one until next week. Instead I'm submitting another LO of one of our summer activities.
