Life is simple. Just add water.

Hey everybody! Happy June 1st! Hard believe, I know, but it’s definitely here! I’m proud to share that one of my projects was Featured over at Scrapping4fun Challenges a few weeks back and the lovely Rachelle offered me a guest design spot, so here I am! Our challenge this month is #213 – Ocean/Water so my GD inspiration project is a super cute Art Impressions Circlet Mini Tryfold depicting a wonderful tropical scene! This is the first one of these trifold cards I’ve made and it was so stinkin’ fun I can’t stand it, and have since made a Christmas one that I’ll be sharing soon!

I cut the trifold card base from 80# Solar White cardstock. At the time I made this card, I hadn’t yet received the package of premade trifold cards, so I made my own. Using the Art Impressions Tropical Circlet Mini Tryfold stamps and dies, I stamped and die cut the three elements of the scene on the front, right-fold flap and inside. I colored the scenes with alcohol markers and stamped an Inspired by Stamping sentiment on the front. I added a tiny disc magnet to hold the card closed and a few gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Adradite Sparkle Embellishment Mix. Here’s a close-up so you can see all three elements of the scene with the card closed. Sure looks mighty inviting! ;)

And here are shots of the card opening up so you can see the other two elements of the scene.

And one more look… this couldn’t be more perfect for the Scrapping4fun Challenge this month! I have to confess that I’ve quickly become an Art Impressions addict with the Matchbooks, the Twisters and the Circlet Mini Tryfolds – and soon you’ll see some Windows to the World! I absolutely love Bonnie Krebs’ imagination!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
