The Kraft Journal #179 Sea and Sand

Happy Happy Monday!

Are you staying Cool???  Thinking back to the long winter we had this year...I won't complain!

For this week's Sea and Sand challenge at The Kraft Journal, I found a Silhouette file that provided the perfect inspiration for my starting point. 

The little beach scene postage stamp has a base of Buff Ivory . The sand is made of Brown Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock. I used Light Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock  for the palm tree base, and the rest were from my scrap pile. I never throw throw anything away, and those small pieces always come in handy at some point. The card base is made of Kraft Cover Weight which can be found at The Kraft Outlet. I followed by matting some solid pieces of cardstock that compliment the postage stamp adding a large scallop border to the top. I took a length of Vintage Winter White Bias Tape  and vertically wrapped it around the card front in the center and tied in a bow adding a button to the center which was threaded with Red Baker's Twine.  Lastly, I stamped the Sweet Summertime sentiment from a newly launched company called Craftin' Desert Diva's in red ink onto a hand-cut banner from Kraft Cover Weight Cardstock.

Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Sea and Sand creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

Have a wonderful day!

NOw that's a fab summer scene!!
(Winter was definitely rough this year, but summer is going to kill me - no AC, and the mosquitoes are so bad this year they're biting through Deep Woods spray AND clothes. Itchy & sweaty is not a fun combo, lol!)
