Today I will be sharing the 2 page layout I submitted to Close To My Heart as part of my application to teach at Convention this year.
Surfs Up layout_beach_extravaganza submission
I had a LOT of fun, adding many details to these pages! 
Let’s take a closer look at all the different aspects of this layout! J

I wanted to add some “texture” to the base pages of this layout…
To do that, I used our NEW stamp set Distressed Backgrounds. I took the mess like stamp, and inked it up in Lagoon colored ink, and stamped it on top of my Lagoon colored base pages!!Surfs Up layout_beach_close up background title
Do you see the dots also on the base page???  I sprayed these pages with a spray pen that was filled with re-inker, pearl paint and water!!  I LOVE the effect this gives the project!!

For the title, I used the Artiste Cricut Cartridge font for the “fun”, but chose to use our NEW Keyboard Kraft Alphabet letter stickers for the word “Beach”.

Next, I created my journaling tag…Surfs Up layout_beach_extravaganza submission_lose up journaling
by using the Artiste Cricut Collection, I created my own pocket for journaling AND a card to stick inside!!!
Check out all that you can do with the “U” button of the Artiste Cartridge!! 
U key- Artiste
On this journaling tag, I also used the Tropical Paradise stamp set, and the Wooden mini-medley collection to add some color and texture.

My FAVORITE part of the layout, is this sun!!!

It’s almost embarrassing to tell you how simple it was to create!! J Believe it or not, this sun is part of the My Stickease collection that coordinates with this Surf’s Up paper pack!!!
I will often use MY STICKEASE in my creation….and I love to “doctor up” these sticker images!!! 
For the clouds, I sponged the edges in ink. 
The sun, I used 3D foam and “popped” it up.  I also used the twine that comes in the Wooden Mini-medley asst pack and some liquid glass to make sure my twine stayed twirled.  Then I took some of our glitz glitter gel to add some sparkle to my beautiful sunshine!!

This layout gets me excited for our upcoming summer!  I LOVE to feel the sunshine on my face, and am so relaxed by the beating of the waves on the sand….I can hardly wait! J

That’s all for now, but I look forward to sharing the REST of the items with you that I submitted to corporate later on this week!!!! 

Come on back and I look forward to seeing you soon!!!!

Blessings to you!
