For my project, I created a birthday box card for my Dad, whose birthday was on Tuesday :) The rope die is from Die-Versions. The hibiscus are from Memory Box, and celebrate is an Elizabeth Craft die.


He loves lighthouses and the ocean...so do I!! So this was fun to make :) The papers are from Heartfelt Creations.






The palm tree is from Yvonne Creations, the sailboat is from Marianne Designs and the lighthouse is from Die-Versions. The waves are from My Creative Time. I cut the seagull from the paper and popped him up with wire. For the beach, I mixed real sand with clear gesso and glossy accents.


The Adirondack chair is from Die-Versions. This palm tree is from Frantic Stamper, as is the beach grass. The airplane and banner is from Impression Obsession.

Your next stop on the hop is Heather. Thanks so much for hoping along today!!

Oh, my goodness, Lisa! I bet your Dad LOVED this birthday gift! I love those nautical images on the inside 'walls' and top,and those die cuts all work so perfectly together. I just want to sit back with a tall glass of iced tea in that inviting chair and listen to the waves crashing! How wonderful that you made a little beach scene complete with a sandy beach! How clever is that! (I'm going to have to remember your clear gesso, glossy accents, sand recipe.) This is one super amazing project! Sending hugs!
