Up here in Canada, school is finally out for the summer. So that means all sorts of fun in then sun and time at my craft table! So I was delighted to find out that my first assignment of the summer was to feature the adorable Seaside Summer Collection! This collection is filled with fun colours and adorable die cuts, and is sure to bring the sun into your day!


So here's the thing - this collection has so many cute die cuts in the Odds and Ends pack that I couldn't help but feature them in some cute little scenes on a set of cards. And for these cards, it is all about the layers! Layers and layers of cute characters and shapes!


For this card, I wanted to feature the "Let's Sail-ebrate" sentiment from the Chit Chat pack in this collection. I grabbed some of the tags from the Bits and Pieces pack to layer on top of the 12x12 patterned paper and then grabbed a few die cut shapes and characters that supported the theme (Hello Steven!!) to layer on top. I used some foam adhesive on these pieces to get some more dimension and to differentiate each piece from the others.


Using a similar process on this card, I finished each of them off with some of the Mini Jewels - one of my favourite Doodlebug product. If you even have a project that just needs something a little "more", a few mini jewels surrounding your focal point will always do the trick!


These cards really are some of my favourites that I have created in awhile. This collection is really an absolute delight to work with! So if you have it hiding in your crafty stash somewhere or need to add it to the collection, don't hesitate. It will bring all sorts of sunshine into your life and the life of the people that you create for! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs,
