Ocean Picture Frame


Creating this project makes me think of the trips I've taken down east. My mom and I are headed to Nova Scotia at the end of this month. I'll put my favourite picture in this frame after our trip. T minus 10 days!


The Under the Sea Framlits makes this project easy! The only freehand cutting I did was around the back seaweed. For the sand dollars I stamped the net onto Whisper White cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the sand dollar framelits, then used my Aquapainter with a small amount of Crumb Cake ink to muddy the lines a bit.

Supplies
Stamps: Sea of Textures
Colours: Bermuda Bay, Granite Gray, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Tranquil Textures Sprinkles, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals, Layering Circle Thinlits, Under The Sea Framelits, Seaside Embossing Folder

A piece of Tropical Paradise!


Yesterday I participated in a demonstrator training day put on by my upline Lisa Henderson and another demonstrator Michelle Stenson. It was a lovely day to hang out with the others and learn new things and be creative with new products! The first project we worked on was this lovely bundle of 3" x 3" cards and a pizza box to hold them. I love all the little accents on each card!

Our second project was this little box to hold our cute little succulent! The main greeting was stamped and cut out with the Stitched Shape Frameltis. But the leaves were all cut out using the Tropical Thinlits and 2 pieces of paper from the Topical Escape designer series. It's great that the thinlits can do double duty and cut out images both stamped and from the designer series paper!

Supplies
Stamps: Tropical Chic, Detailed With Love
Colours: Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, Shaded Sprice, Whisper White
Accessories: Tropical Thinlits, Tropical Escape 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, Tropical Elements (wood flower), Nature's Twine - Crumb Cake, Stampin' Dimensionals, Gift Box Punch board, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Tailored Tag Punch

Octopus Shoebox Swap

This past weekend my upline hosted a Shoebox Swap - Case the Catalogue event at her home. It was fun to create cards and hang out!

It was really hard to choose a sample from the catalogue I wanted to make my own! I was finally able to decide on the Sea of Textures stamp set. The top image is from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue on page 154 where my inspiration for this card came from - the white gable box on the bottom right corner.

Supplies
Stamps: Sea of Textures
Colours: Mint Macron, Powder Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Night of Navy
Accessories: Under the Sea Framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals

New Catalogue! Global Stamping Friends

So many fun things happening today! The 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue starts today, information about Paper Pumpkin's coordinating suite in the new catalogue, it's FRIDAY and it's Blog Hop day!

The new Sea of Textures stamp set is awesome! There are so many projects I want to make using it! I made this card for a demonstrator swap last month. It was really quick to put together and make 5 of them since I was making them the day they were needed. But that's ok, I love how the card turned out! What about you? Do you find yourself making a card just before you need it?
