Seaside by Request

I spent the better part of my day putting together a layout for the Stamp of the Month swap coming up on May 1st and ordering pictures from Studio J to go on that layout along with planning a birthday layout for Miss B and ordering pictures for that I am about to go cross eyed from looking at pictures on the computer, but then I got a phone call that I hadn’t posted a card today which made the guilt set in.

You’d think the caller thought I was hitting the coconut tequila or something!  It really does make a yummy drink and since I was thinking about the beach…

Since the Seaside Scrapbook Workshop On the Go was within reach I decided I could whip out one little card and I think I even got everything straight, LOL!

This is just a 4.75 X 3 inch card, perfect to stick on a package for a summer birthday or maybe to write some romantic note in to my DH for a fantastic weekend at the beach and how much I appreciate him.

I matched the ink to the paper, Pear, Smoothie and Desert Sand tied on a piece of hemp and stuck on some Aqua Dots.  Card done and posted to blog…now onto that Coconut Tequila!

Thanks for stopping by!


Family Adventure with Sarita

I’m pretty excited that I’m continuing to make progress in knocking out layouts and learning a few things along the way.  My layouts have really evolved from my first attempts at scrapbooking nearly 20 years ago.

These layouts feature a fun family adventure which included the girls first ferry ride.  I discovered after attending the Close to My Heart Fall Album Retreat how much fun it is to use stamped images and Cricut cuts on my layouts.  Notice that I combined lots of circular accents to tie both pages together including Aqua Dots to bind together the title as well as “dot” the i!

While I was hopping around on blogs to see what others have been up to I stumbled upon a new technique thanks to a fellow consultant and amazing artist Tamra Pope.  Tamra had layered papers to give her title dimension and I had to give it a try.


I’m not sure if you can see the dimension, but I layered 6 images together to create my title.  I used 5 images of Colonial White and topped it off with Goldrush.  I love how it gives some depth to the title without using 3D Foam Tape.

Thanks for stopping by…if you’d like to book some play time with a group of friends to learn a new technique, please feel free to drop me a message!

Happy Scrappin’
