Under the Sea Card

I had some fun with the wonderful stamp new Clear Stamp Set (CS250). I floated a piece of vellum over the top of the stamped image to try and emulate water. Tearing adds texture and interest on the base of this easel card.

Beach Themed Circle Shelf

I saw this, loved it and after decorating it love it even more. It is a very inexpensive project and because I chose to use the ink pad on it instead of painting it, it is a super quick project. There is also a gorgeous heart shelf (SB2403) that I have my eye on, I think it will feature my darling hubby!

I chose to make some simple chipboard (CB155) photo stands instead of sticking photos on my project, that way I can be flexible and change the layout  when my son brings me new shells – he hunts for perfectly formed miniatures! Love using the Kasier stamp pads to colour my wood. On this project,  Ink Pad ‘726 Island’ looks washed, I love that!  Run your pad along the wood, one way will run smoothly, the other will be rough, obviously go with the smooth!

I love the Kaisercraft corked bottles, they are super cute! Here I have filled one with sand and the other with some of my sons prized mini shell collection! I have popped the starfish out by using 3 layers of Kaisercraft Foam tape (T303). The wave border, taken off the sticker sheet acts as a perfect barrier and keeps things on the shelf. After sticking, I brushed talc on the back of the waves to make it ‘not sticky’!

Beach Layout


 Have some creative fun using your circle dies ( DD553) to cut your photos. Bundle together with a standard rectangle shape for added interest. How awesome are those seagulls ( DD364).

Did you notice I cropped and then slipped one of the ‘Paradise’ Photo Overlays under my photo. They go so well this this collection and theme!

Beach Fun Layout


Have you tried the Alphabet dies from Kasiercraft yet? In this layout I cut them out in Jac paper, (a double sided adhesive paper available from most good craft shops) and then peeled the backing paper off and stuck them to my layout. I then peeled the front paper off and poured on fine sand. After shaking off the excess I was left with a rether cool title! Did you also notice how I splattered white Gesso on my background paper, adds a nice subtle slightly textured element.

 Tearing strips for sand or water is goes together that jelly and ice cream…yum! Have fun creating your layers and roughing up those edges!

I think the little details add to the mix and often make a fab layout. Notice the new Cracke Designer Template (IT905) that I used in the background and then spritzed with Kasier mist. I used a dark brown pencil to make the overlapping iron slates stand out more and Glossy Accents on the old nailheads!
