Summertime fun is the theme of our Stampin Friends Blog Hop this month. Nothing says Summer more to me than the beach! I grew up in the water-Pool, ocean, lake, creek-it didn't matter, we were always swimming, boating, fishing and water skiing. My dear Tombo lived his whole life (before me) right at the door of the worlds most beautiful beaches, and he doesn't swim! But, he does love to fish in the ocean for big fish!!!! This is probably why I fell in love with this Seaside Shore stamp set and By the Shore DSP the minute I saw it. What a great saying and love the fishes! One of my goals this year is to use, not hoard, my beautiful DSP. I created these projects with that in mind.
I have 2 cards, a 3 D box frame, and a little treat holder to share with you today. I stayed with the By the shore color palette of Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral and Dapper Denim (my new fav). The neutral is Very Vanilla
This one I used the lines from the Swirly thinlits with a bunch of layered circles. The Happy Place is from a Paper Pumpkin. Made me think of Finding Nemo.
Then, I had to try out the very popular
frame card. It is a blast to make and way easier than I imagined. If you like Geometry -you can have a ball making these. You can create several different sizes and vary the center and the size of your frame width. This one is about 4 1/2 by 6 1/2- I started with a 8 1/2 x 9 1/2 piece of Soft Sky cardstock . My framed edge is 1/2 inch. My final project is this sweet little treat holder. Our VBS theme this year is Submerged! This is a great little treat holder for our teachers. It will hold some goldfish and a Caramel and Sea Salt Ghirardelli square.
I hope you enjoyed these and they inspire you to create something fun and summery!
