North Shore...WMS July Previews Day 2 67

Mona Pendleton | Friday, June 29, 2012 @ 12:00 AM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! Welcome to Day 2 of the June Waltzingmouse Stamps Previews! Today, we are sharing projects focused on the North Shore stamp set that will be released on Sunday, July 1st in the Waltzingmouse Stamps on line store.

We are a beach lovin' family so this stamp set as well as the My Island stamp set (which will be revealed tomorrow) is right up my alley! I scrapped a layout featuring a photo of Connor that was taken on the beach last summer while on vacation in Kauai. I incorporated many techniques that I learned from taking Stacey Young's class that can be found at Miss Art's Papercrafting School.

To create the tag shown below, I stamped the NORTH SHORE image using VersaMark ink, on a tag made using a Sizzix die, embossed using white embossing powder then stamped the decorative flourishes and sentiment. I added a little bottle embellishment that I filled with sand :)
The SUMMER starts here sentiment is from the My Island stamp set (which will be revealed tomorrow) ~ makes for the perfect title for this layout!
Thanks so much for visiting!
