If you own the Close To My Hearts How To Program IMAGINE, as well as Calypso Workshop Your Way, you can easily create this two page spread (with a little tweaking). It’s the Monologue layout .. one of my favorites! I used the E1030 Handwritten Print Alphabet stamp set to create “Coolin’ Off.”
Why stop there if you have more paper to work with? I had some of the ‘suns’ precut and cut “fun in the sun” (all from Artbooking Cricut Collection). I really liked the sun glasses zip strip … so what do you do? How about this fun layout using 3×12′s and 2×12′s in the bold stripe pattern. Cotton candy cardstock under the zip strips and the photos wells are 4×4 and 4×6 from the scraps. By the time you create all 12 pages, nothing but confetti is left! Love consuming it all!
Calypso is our Kit of the Month for JULY. Here’s the original 8 pages I created first before the extras above:
This kit is a summer keeper and will be retiring on August 31st! So, I would suggest buying a kit now if this is your kind of thing. I’m not sure when I’ll be seeing you at a Crop and can’t guarantee I’ll have much left in my inventory until then.

Lastly, this Album Project (21 pages in all) was designed by Chris Lothian using the WHIMSY Fundamental Collection (but you could use any of the four fundamentals collections). Here’s a sample of a two page spread:
Isn’t it pretty? The workshop includes a Title page for your album and 20 pages (that’s 10 (2) page spreads).
