It's Ro back again, and for those of you who know me, you know I'm a card-maker. But every once in a while, I come across a paper that is just too darn pretty to cut down for a card. The Seashore Glittered Cardstock was one of those papers. The rich teal and sparkly brown scene just begged to be a scrapbook page.
I grabbed a bunch of banners from Gina's Designs and all my rub-on and sticker letters and created a sign post. After cutting a small slit in the "sand" where I wanted to put the post, I slid the base of the post under the slit. I added a cute sandpiper that I found in my stash to give it a little more dimension.
The title of the page, Fun At The Beach, started out as a sticker that just said "Beach". I added "FUN" using some brown glitter TRN letter stickers. The "at" and "the" were added from random sets of rub-ons. I love how the mix-and-match just seems to complement this layout. I added just a little more twinkle to the word "Beach" using a bronze Wink of Stella marker. That added just the right balance of sparkle.
I used another tag and added a rub-on sentiment and piece of twine. This will be used for a little journaling. The crab was also highlighted with the bronze Wink of Stella marker. The kraft squares will mat the pictures I eventually choose for this layout.
I couldn't stop there though. There was another paper that was begging me to play with it. So I grabbed the template from our co-sponsor this month, Green Sneakers, and created a seashell keepsake box.
This box was incredible easy to make. All the directions for assembly are on in the packaging of their templates. The instructions were so clear and easy to follow. I used another sticker from TRN and added a sticker and some twine.
I also added some rub-ons and vellum stickers I found in my stash, along with a few teal Dew Drops.
Those starfish make such a beautiful statement on this box, that it really didn't need much added to it.
It will make a great little box to stash those found beach objects in. The inside of the box didn't need any work as this gorgeous paper is two-sided.
I hope you enjoyed my projects and thanks for letting me share with you today! I hope you go check out this awesome collection of papers, stickers and embellishments.
