Hi Everyone! It's Sonya from Sonya's Paper Trail here today with a super cool, beach inspired project that I designed just for Dr. Phil Scraps. When we go to the beach, my son always finds little treasures he likes to pick up--seashells, sand dollars and such. I thought he might like to have a little keepsake bag to put his treasures in for the trip home.
Check out my project for today:
There's a lot of great Close To My Heart goodies featured in this project today. All the stamps I used are from the Bright Sunshiny Day stamp set (D1538).
I started by using one of the Muslin Drawstring Bags (Z1822), which I stamped shells and starfish from the Bright Sunshiny Day stamp set in a random pattern. I then took a sponge and inked the edges of the bag, just to age it a bit.
For the decoration, I stamped the car onto a circle cut, and inked the edges of that piece, too. The starburst shaped brown piece is a cut from Art Philosophy (Page 61, cut at 2 3/4"). I made a ribbon shape from some patterned paper I had on hand and stamped the saying directly onto the patterned paper. Here's a quick tip: don't be afraid to stamp on patterned paper. It adds a lot of dimension to your project--just make sure the paper is light and your ink is fairly dark so it's visible! I inked the edge of my ribbon piece then assembled those pieces to look like a ribbon that might be found at your local county fair. I used one of the Mini Clothespins (Z1815) to attach the ribbon I made to the Muslin Drawstring Bag. It will be the perfect little beach keepsake bag, don't you think?!
Thanks for stopping by today....hope you have a day filled with creativity!
