Life's a Beach

This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge is Life is a Beach. I used this as an opportunity to scrapbook our trip to Clearwater Beach last year.


I absolutely love the Seaside WOTG. I will really miss this set when it retires next month! 


I used some cuts from the Life's a Beach Cricut cartridge to create waves and the brown border.


I also used the Seaside Picture My Life cards to embellish the page. And, yes, those are real seashells from the beach.


I added an extra layer to the page by using a background stamp that is included with the WOTG. 


On the right page, I continued the same Cricut cuts to balance the pages.


To add dimension to the page, I cut up a PML card and added foam tape behind certain parts. (Thanks to my friend Adrienne for letting me scraplift this!)


I also made this little beach sign that I added hemp string to, so that it looks like you could hang it.

Ingredients:

Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!

    1. Thanks so much! I really love the fine details of a page. They really go unnoticed by non-papercrafters though. LOL
