Surf’s Up!

8/13/22 Top 3 at Inkspirational Challenges!
8/31/22 Special Mention Winner at Classic Design Challenge Blog!

Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great week! I mentioned in my post yesterday that I joined the design team for the ScrapbookingStore which boasts a FABulous monthly scrapbook kit subscription club that’s very affordable. The August kit is beach-themed and I’ve had the best time creating with it! I’m sharing a fun surf card today… you know how I love creating little scenes and I felt like a ride along the beach headed to the waves to go surfing was in order!

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock. I cut a layering panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and covered it with Eyelet Outlet wide sky and wide water washi tape and CutCardStock Brown Bag Kraft Paper to get the scene started.

I added a land line in the distance that I hand-cut from CutCardStock Basis Brown cardstock, an Eyelet Outlet palm tree brad, and a yellow sun clip from the kit upgrades which I attached with a harlequin patterned brad from my stash. I added the beach bug and sentiment stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit (sentiment popped up on foam squares) to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from patterned paper in the kit and embellished it with sentiment and surf board stickers from the sticker sheet included in the kit.

And one more peek… super happy with how this turned out! Sure brings back some fun memories – I didn’t surf but we used to drive up and down one of our semi-local beaches back in the day (late 70s) when it was allowed! ;)

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

  1. I like how the sky and ocean look realistic, whereas the sun does not. This turned out a fun summer scene, with great details. So glad to see you play with us at INK.
