Monday Beach Time

Happy Monday!

Did you have a nice weekend?  I sure did.  It rained on Saturday so I was totally lazy and I loved every second of it!  It was wonderful and then I had a nice Mother's day with my boys.  Talk about perfect.

I have a fun layout for you today.  My goal was to create a summer themed layout using my Core'dinations cardstock and my Some Odd Girl Stamps!  What a perfect combination.
For my layout I started with my Core Essentials Pastels and I sanded it pretty heavy.  I then took a piece of coordinating color in the Core Impressions and sanded it to expose the wonderful embossed doilies.  To cover up the seams I added some Bella Blvd stickers.  For my photos I made a mat using the Chocolate Box and ran it through the paper crimper and sanded it to expose the pink core.  I then added touches of pattern pape from Bella.

With the layout formed and set.  Now it was time to add the stamping.  I used several different stamp sets to create this layout:
1. Mr Octopus
2. Beachy Mae
3.  Beach Day Buddies
4.  Happy Day
5. Under the Sea Mae

supplies
cardstock- Core'dinations
paper, stickers- Bella Blvd
stamps- Some Odd Girl
ink- memento, jenni bowlin

I made a video on how to include stamps on a layout.  I hope you enjoy it.




Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new card using the new digi release from SOG!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
