By the Sea...

Hi Everyone!  CHA is just around the corner and I think I'm actually going to finish everything that I had planned...with a little help from my bestie - Mindy.  Thanks Mindy!!!  You're a doll!

I haven't been able to post as much as I would have liked, but I thought I would show off a couple of projects that I made a while back.  I was asked to do some things with a 'Seaside' theme and this is what I came up with.  You may have seen these already in an older issue of Magnolia Ink, but I wanted to show them off in their entirety and give you an explanation of how I came up with them. 

Here they are:

I found this beautiful frosted bottle at a local craft store and thought it would be great to hold some bubble bath.  So I thought about making a bathroom set that you could rest by the tub in your summer cottage.  It's pretty to look at and useful too!  I grabbed the soaps, some paper, a little lace and string, a few beachy charms and this is what I came up with!  That little cutie is 'Mini Mermaid Tilda' and she is perfect for this 'Seaside' project.  She is available right now at Magnolia-licious and she's perfect for use on many of your summer projects.  I tell ya, these Mini Magnolia stamps are so quick and easy to color.  I think it took me less than an hour to color all three with Copics and DI's.  I cut them out and matted them with some SB nesties and the project was complete!

This 'Miss You' card set was another easy-to-do project.  I made the bag with a little help from my Scor-Pal.  If you don't have one of the babies, get one and it'll quickly become one of your favorite paper crafting tools.  I use either my Scor-Pal or by Scor-Buddy with each and every paper project that I make.

I thought of this project as a little going away gift that you could give to a friend so she could write you while she's away for the summer.  It's a little more personal than a postcard dontcha think?  I would love to get one of these in the mail with a little hello and an update on a friends travels.  I used 'Swimming Tilda' on the front of the bag and colored her with Copics directly on the Magnolia dp.  I don't see her in the store right now in the full size, but she is available in Mini.  I used the 'Seahorse' on all of the cards in the set.  It was cut and matted with SB nesties as well.  Both sentiments, 'See You Later' and 'Miss You' are also from Magnolia.

That is it from me for now.  I will be posting from CHA as often as I can so I hope you can make your way back here!  If you happen to attend CHA, then please stop by the Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Booth 918 to say 'Hello'!

Big Hugs to you all,
