It's HOT outside! No better place to hit than the beach! For as long as I can remember, the moment my son hits the beach he dives into the sand to begin building a castle. In this layout, I included some sand to help capture his ‘true love’ for the beach.
I had fun embellishing this layout with lots of different things. To begin with I used several pieces of pattern paper to create the banner.
I decided to add the sand under the title so I used a Spellbinders die to cut out a wave.
I ripped some a soowang tape sheet and folded it half back and placed the wave over half the sticky area.
Next I dumped the sand that I had collected over the sticky part and pressed it down. You can buy scrapbooking sand or you can be sentimental and use the real thing! Next I pulled out the rest of the backing of the tape, added some pattern paper and trimmed it down to fit on my layout.
I also used Spellbinders Nautical shapes too accent my page. Using them as a stencil, I left the paper in the die and adding some liquid adhesive and then poured on more sand.
I was excited to find this trim in my stash of stuff. It already had shells hanging off of it. The perfect touch!
