Hello everyone!

Last summer I had seen some watermelon-inspired albums and so, after seeing the new *Crazy Summer*, I decided that this year I had to try it too! This paper is fantastic and is ideal for this type of project!


Making it is simple, just punch the larger circle of the *Dashing Circles* die. Choose the patterns that you prefer (I have 7 choices), and fold them in half so that the patterned part remains inside.


On the white face of each half circle, I put the double-sided tape and glued the pages making each semi-circle adhere to the next one. So I got a structure in which the first and last sides are white which will be the album cover.


Now let's see together how I made them:

I punched the green pattern with the largest circle (13.3 cm), the white cardboard with the slightly smaller circle measuring 12 cm and the red striped pattern with the 10.6 cm circle.


I cut them in half and glued them one on top of the other (the straight part of the cut must coincide): the big green semicircle must be below, then I put the white semicircle and finally, on top, I also glued the red one... the first watermelon slice is made!


I repeated the same way with the other 3 semicircles and I also got the second slice: one must be glued as it is, on the last side, instead on the other half, which will be the actual cover, I put the title and I decorated with a *Banner*, some silver thread and sequins.


To decorate the inside pages I punched white squares and rectangles using the *Dashing Rectangles* and *Dashing Squares* dies, these are used to put under the photographs so as to make them stand out.


Then I cut out various elements such as the monstera leaf, the ice creams and the orange slice and I added them to each page, together with the die cut from the *Tab Set* die and the various stamps "happy", "perfect", "crazy", "amazing” taken from the *Sentiments* stamp set.


To complete I added the silver thread and the sequins.

Oh oh I forgot... to make it more delicious I added a twine with the paper beads, always made by rolling up the scraps of paper. I also put the watermelon slice charms: just stick it on the 1mm *Vegetable Cardboard* and cut out!


That's all! I hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks and see you soon!

Francesca.
