Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a watermelon inspired scrapbook layout featuring my daughter and a batch of sweet treats that we baked. I have been saving these patterned papers from Rose Moka for many many years and it feels great to finally use them! Does anyone else remember this fun Canadian paper company? The colorful watermelon print patterned paper was the perfect pairing to the batch of delicious watermelon sugar cookies we made. Assembling the Watermelon Shaker was just as fun and layering the cookie dough for the slice-and-bake recipe.
I used acrylic paint to color the Watermelon Shaker pieces. I filled the shaker feature with a fun mix of sequins, rhinestones, and beads.
I used a project life card for some journaling. I embossed a Wood Veneer Retro Flower with Ranger Ice Resin Iced Enamels and attached it to the center of the watermelon slice on the card. I love using Iced Enamels to emboss wood veneer and chipboard. The multi-colored powder is a fast way to create a speckled finish in one step that really pairs well with the splatter design on these patterned papers.
I embossed several more Wood Veneer Retro Flowers and used them to embellish the space around my photo.
I combined words from two chipboard sets to create a mixed font title that I embossed with pink Iced Enamels. The word #Pretty is from the Social Hashtags Set. I used half of the word Sweetheart from the Best Friends Border Words Set.
