Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge: Summertime!!

Happy Sunday, everyone!! I hope you are having a great weekend!! It's time for another super-fun Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky!! And starting this month, we are rolling out a new format. The challenges will now be monthly...you will have a whole month to link up your project!!

The challenge theme for June is Summertime!! So fun!! For my Summertime project, I created a beach bag and matching card :)


I know the colors are a little bold, but I love this paper from K&Company Happy Trails paper stack. Some of the pages are glossy and embossed, like the wave paper on the front of the beach bag. It's really beautiful!! I didn't get the chance to write out the instructions on how to make the beach bag, but it is similar to THIS bag, I just added a top flap that snaps closed. The bag is made with Spellbinders Creative Book Pages dies (thanks again, Shirl!!). The trees are from Life's A Beach, the flip flops are Spellbinders Surf's Up dies inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. The flower is a Spellbinders Rose Creation die using Core Couture paper from Core'dinations, and the gem swirls are from Recollections. The tag is a Nested Pendant die, inked with Spiced Marmalade. "Enjoy the Summer" is from K Andrew Designs Splashtastic Summer stamp set.


The base of the card is a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped square with a Grand square on top. The next three layers are Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags and Accents, inked with Spiced Marmalade and popped up with foam tape for dimension. The flower is a Rose Creation in Core Couture paper. "Sending You Sunny Thoughts" is also from Splashtastic Summer:


Kristal also has several awesome new sets available now and she has TWINE!! 100 yards for $5.00 in several beautiful colors!! What a bargain!! Check it out here:


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Getting Cricky to see the amazing projects my talented Design Team sisters have created, and then link up you Summertime project!! You have a whole month...no excuses!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

  16. Amazing colours! It is gorgeous. I have a question. If you used Spellbinders for the base of the card, how did you attach the card base? I really want to make shaped cards and my friend and yours, Sherrie, told me to use Spellbinders. Thanks so much.

  29. My sweetest friend, when I first saw this late last night, I was simply stunned! Surprised that you created a masterpiece? No way! But stunned at seeing such beauty awaiting me. :o) I love the ultra bright colors for a project that celebrates summer's splendor. The cuts are amazing (I REALLY want those flip flops from that set!), the items themselves are fantastic, and you know how much I love every detail. Ink to perfectly match, sparkles at just the right locations, flourishes that I could stare at for days, and the lovely trims and Core Couture flowers. *dreamy sigh* Exquisite, my talented friend. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
