Life at the Beach

By the Tide 1

By the Tide 2









I have the last of my March Creative Crew projects for you today. The Challenge was “to make something we love in a scrapbook page, This n That or 3-D project.” I was itching to think about warmer weather and that naturally made me think about taking a vacation since we live in Michigan. Our vacations will always involve a beach somewhere! There is no better way to relax and get away from your stress than to go to the ocean. I have become so used to making beach vacation scrapbook pages that this one came together in no time at all. I love the new DSP, High Tide, in the Celebrate the Everyday catalog. It is perfect for scrapbooks of all types and sizes. I also used the stamp set that went with it so well – By the Tide. Some fast fuzzy-cutting of stamps and the ships in a bottle DSP and this 2 page spread was done! I have left plenty of spaces for journaling and mementos. Now where should we go….

Delightful (Dozen) as a Morning Meadow

Morning Meadow, Petite Petals, Delightful Dozen

Morning Meadow is such a pretty stamp set so I decided to use it for the challenges for Pals Paper Arts and The Card Concept this week. The Pals have a great sketch that would complement the birthday challenge for The Card Concept. I feel my style for this card is the Clean & Layered. What do you think?

PPA Card Concept








This card started out by choosing the Gingham Garden DSP. This paper is perfect for Spring, don’t you think? I wanted a pattern that was bold but would let the stamped flowers stand out. I played for a little while with the layers and and decided to go with cardstock for both, embossing the first one and using the second one for the sentiment. The ribbons were added, then flowers were stamped and candy dots added.
