SEASIDE SUMMER BEACH HOUSE CARD | with Wanda

Greetings from the beach - Doodlebug Beach! It's Wanda, back with another fun project made with the new Seaside Summer Collection! Today I made a Beach House card. One of my favorite elements from this collection is the beach houses, so I made them the feature of my card. This finished card is a kraft base, folded into a 5x7 horizontal card. I layered 12x12 Seaside Summer patterned paper, and then a white layer. Then I had a good time adding all those pieces: houses, palm trees, a surfboard and of course a crab having a margarita!! 

All the houses were attached to the card with foam tape. I placed the palms behind the houses to frame them. I added a Chit Chat element for my sentiment. I added white gel pen accents onto the die cuts.

The most fun part of this card was adding the different accents! I used Sprinkles in green, the crab is a Doodle Pop, he's holding a margarita from another Sprinkles pack... I added some hearts and the surfboard sticker. It's so fun to customize it and make it your own. I just truly love all these delicious happy colors together.

 Cheers to the rest of Summer! We'd better enjoy it because September will be here soon!!

That's it for me today! I don't scrapbook too much so I usually make cards and other projects. However, I think this would make a super cute scrapbook layout across the bottom of a page - all the beach houses all lined up? What do you think? Happy crafting until I see you again soon!

SEASIDE SUMMER GOOD TIMES LAYOUT | with Lisa

OMG... I just love the new collection, called Seaside Summer. It's so cute and fresh and you just want to put on your swimsuit and go to the beach when you look at it... :) I decided to create a layout for my first project using this collection... layouts are my favorite thing to do when creating.  So here's what I came up with... I totally love it... heheee!


When I went through the patterned papers for the first time, I noticed this adorable paper with tiny shells and starfish. I knew it was going to be a lot of fussy cutting, but I absolutely wanted to create something with these.  I came up with the idea to create beaded strands with the shells, sequins and glass beads. 


So to start, I cut out a lot of teeny tiny shells. Then I chose matching colors of sequins from my Doodlebug sequins collection and I added some tiny glass beads from my stash. Before I began with the threading of the strands, I chose a photo, matted it with some pieces of patterned paper and added it to my white background.



To create the beachy, tropical strands, I used a holographic thread (that you can't really see anymore...:) and threaded the paper pieces, beads and sequins, just using the colors randomly in order to have a very colorful result.  I pierced the thread through the paper, added the embellishments and went through the paper again to attach the strand to it.


I wanted the pieces to stay put more or less, so I put a tiny bit of glue behind each shell.  To decorate some more, I wanted to add three flower clusters. I used flowers and leaves from the Bits & Pieces pack, gave them some dimension by bending them and placed them in three different spots, also adding some tangled thread.  Then I quickly added my title; a piece from the Chit Chat pack. To finish with some more details, I added super small enamel dots and jewels around the three flower spots. And after that, I also sprinkled some paint. 


I'm super happy with how this turned out and will for sure use this technique again :) See you soon... I hope you are spending a beautiful summer.:)

SEASIDE SUMMER MINI ALBUM IN A BOX | with Miguel

Summer days are incredible and even more fun if they are spent with friends. Today I have a mini album inside a box to capture and remember those unforgettable days in Cancun.


First, I altered a wooden box and decorated it with the beautiful  papers from the Seaside Summer collection. I started by painting the box, then added some papers to cover and a beautiful shaker on the lid of my box, decorated with some mini icon stickers to make it even more fun.



Inside the box, I made a n accordion mini album which unfolds towards the box top.  I placed photographs of my incredible vacation moments on each page. I didn't want those days to end !

It was definitely an exciting trip,  full of laughter and lots of fun. Here are some of the photos with each of my friends in Cancun beach.



I hope I have inspired you to document your summer, using the fun new Seaside Summer collection!
