Let’s Head to the Beach! …Seaside Pages

Finally!  I got to scrapbook with my favorite paper from this year’s Annual Inspirations Idea Book:  Seaside.  I fell in love with this paper the first time I saw it last August.  I saved the best for last though and have waited until this month to break into my Seaside paper stash.  This set of pages completes the series of layouts we’ve done this year, using each of the papers available in the Annual Inspirations book, as well as the Seasonal Expressions booklets. Congratulations to those of you who have joined me each month in these pages. We’ve completed 65 two page layouts this year!!!!

The B+T paper with the underwater scene is so gorgeous I didn't want to cut it up!

Based on the WOTG layout, I've included a cricut cutout as a "net", and a film strip and some of the metal shells in the Seaside Accessories

Ice Cream Dreams and Butterflies

CTMH’s June Stamp of the Month, “Ice Cream Dream”, is perfect for those summer birthday cards for the kiddos.  So many fun cards can be made with this stamp set!  For the grown ups I’ve added in some elegant butterfly cards using my new Cricut Explore machine to cut out the lacy butterfly wings.

Love these starburst cards! This one features CTMH's glossy resist card stock in an array of summer colors...

This card includes every stamp in the Ice Cream Dreams stamp set, white embossed on pixie paper and then colored in with alcohol markers. White shimmer trim and coral sequins finish off the card. Looks good enough to eat!

Stamping the sentiment on black card stock with white pigment ink gives a chalkboard appearance to this card. Love that puppy!

CTMHs Artiste cricut cartridge features this butterfly with lacy wings atop a solid background. The glacier thick twine is my favorite fiber to work with at the moment.
