Paper House Summer Beach Blog Hop

Life's Better at the Beach... this will make a fabulous Paper House blog hop project.

Paper: Paper House Beaches for the World PP-0019
Stickers: Paper House Beach Collection SBC-0060, Paper House Endless Summer Snapshot Stickers STSS-0005, Paper House Cardstock Stickers STCX-0050
Accents: Paper House Sunshine Cork Stickers STCO-0002
Die Cuts: Paper House Serene Beach Die Cuts STDC-0004
Cardstock: misc
Paint: Adirondack
Ink: Tim Holtz Ranger
Twine: Bella Creationz Timeless Twine

Sometimes the best part of a themed paper can be best used by ripping it and inking the edges. Prep on the white background was to splatter and blotted ink for more colour.

I wanted a sun ray so using twine I wrapped pieces from the centre core to the outer edges before applying the beach themed paper on the bottom half. 

Lots of dimension is added to the page with the fun snapshot beach stickers beside each other on the top left corner.

What a great cluster with Die cut Title, some sticker shells and the fabulous fun cork creature stickers.

With the photos and title clusters placed the lower edge needed attention... so using a border of sticker shells across the bottom it based the whole page.  

Beach page came together with a hint of beach, water, and lots of shells with super fun family photos. (from Stacey and the girls visit with us in Florida)

Thanks for popping by. I enjoy sharing pages with you.
