It’s time to pull out your summertime photos! The juicy fruits of these papers go together like berries and cream with your summer-themed snapshots.

Add the stamp set to the paper and photos, and you won’t be able to rein in your crafting fingers! With a change of ink color, you can create a lemon, lime, or an orange, and all from the same stamp. Or split a sentiment and you’ve got dozens of possibilities for titles and photo captions.

Most delicious of all, these stamp images can look as mouthwatering as real fruit when you get creative with your inking. We stamped some very convincing strawberries by using the rock ‘n’ roll technique. First we stamped the entire base in Cotton Candy ink, then we rolled just a portion of the stamp in Cranberry and layered it on top. On the far right edge, we finished the look with a roll in Ruby.

The “JAM” title is also a mix of inks that combine to make a very berry look: Ruby and Cotton Candy.

The “yummy” sentiment we made by stamping the entire base first in Cotton Candy ink, then working our way left. We overlapped half the sentiment with Cranberry ink and added a layer of Ruby to the left end. Mmmm.

For an added touch of homegrown, we’ve woven some stitching into the page. Use your stitch guide to create the same look you see here. Don’t forget to leave room for journaling, too, because you’re going to want to document the greatest summer memories you’ve ever had.

It’s going to be a great month, and an even better summer. Get your Taste of Summer paper packet and stamp set today!
