Beautiful You Goes on Summer Vacation with the Sisterhood of Crafters


We had such a great time visiting all of the beautiful creations made for our last challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters. I hope you got to see them, too! I am hosting the next challenge and can’t wait to see your new cards. The challenge is “Summer Vacation”, which is perfect for the summer we are having this year. I hope you will join us and show what you enjoy doing during the summer. My card shows what we do every year! The ocean calls our name till we just have to answer it. Beautiful You and the new Lilypad Lake made just the scene I was wanting!


Relaxing Vacation Card Featuring #BeautifulYou, #LilyPadLake, #HighTide, #Birthday, #Summer, #LakesideFramelits, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp


My Secrets to Making This Project
  • The background was made with the framelit from Lakeside Framelits, cutting the paper twice, then layering it onto Silver Foil Sheet so that it would create the shimmer that the sun makes on the water.
