SOS252: sounds of the sea

we're feeling beachy keen at shopping our stash this week, so we're making cards (and other projects!) that celebrate the ocean, the seashore, fishes, sandcastles, sea horses... well, you get the idea, right? i made a card, because hey, it's what i do! :)

scraps of LOTS of different patterned papers, torn and stuck on as layers: creative imaginations, prima, recollections, glitz design, doodlebug, october afternoon; dimensional palm tree stickers: creative imaginations; seashore and shell corner brads: eyelet outlet; chipboard glitter letters: k and co; adhesives: staples brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

this is not the card i thought i was making, lol! the card i thought i was making also said "ALOHA" and had palm trees, but somehow my intended hibiscus, hula girl and watercolory goodness took a little vacation and this happened, instead. and i'm fine with that. in fact, in some ways, it's better than the idea i had in my head. plus, it's kind of a "guy card" which is nice; i never seem to amass extras in that category, so i consider it a bonus!


the lovely bathing beauties at SOS have also made some wonderful and creative projects to inspire you, why not check those out asap?! ♥

  3. Well watercolory goodness can take as much of a vacation as it wants to as long as we get to continue hanging out with your paper piecing fabulousness all the time. Your eye for patterns will always leave my jaw on the floor!
