Summer Blooms & Sunny Brights

In an attempt to squeeze the very last drop out of summer, I have been combing the walls and halls here at Paper Wishes for some of my favorite floral collections. I have several birthdays coming up, and the vivid florals will help me to create some great end-of-summer birthday cards! I also have a ton of summer fun to document, and bright patterns will definitely help to convey exactly how much fun was had! But for your inspiration, I thought I would leave it to the pros. Here I’ve found some beautiful, bright and unique cards and scrapbooking pages, created by our Design Team, all using some of Paper Wishes’ most vibrant papers!

I love the boldness of our Bountiful paper pack. This is one that my mother and I would both agree on! I have never seen red and purple look so great together. It’s a classic floral theme, but with a color palette that keeps it looking modern. Click on the project images for instructions and supplies!

Our Fresh Cut paper pack is another very bold floral that I really enjoy. The red and the teal are truly striking together, and they give your projects a bright, but still elegant look. I think this is also a great example of a paper that does double-duty. Maybe even triple. Meaning, I can see using these papers for Spring, Summer and Fall projects and I think it’s really important for papers to be versatile. If they’re not? Well, then you end up like myself, toting around an orange bag full of luau-themed paper for seven years. Yeah, that has to go.

When it comes to documenting your summer fun and activities, I don’t think you could find papers more appropriate than those in our Happy Days paper pack. These also have me dying to create a birthday-themed banner/bunting, although my crafting eyes are often far busier than my crafting hands! I’m sure you can relate.
