Here is my project.

The card size is A9 (5 ½ x 8 ½). 
For the base of the card I used the DCWV Glitter Spring Stack and all other paper was from Recollections.
I used the cartridges Life is A Beach, Wild Card Create a Critter & Paper Doll Dress Up.

The white top layer is cut at 5 x 8.

The little beach girl is cut at 2 ½ inches from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cart – page 29.
Her bathing suit is on page 42, her hair was from page 71.  I bling’d it using a jewel flower that I had on hand.
Her pineapple drink is from Life Is a Beach – page 48.

The cute chair is from Life Is a Beach– cut at 2 ¼ inches and is silver glitter paper from the DCWV Spring Stack. – page 81

The palm tree is also Life Is a Beach – 3 inches – page 41
The crab is Create a Critter – 1 inch – page 40
The sun is from Wild Card – 1.5 inches (real dial size)  - page 55
The Summer Lovin letters I did using my Gypsy.  I used the Gypsy Font cart and welded and cut at 1.75 inches.
The sand was just tan glitter paper from DCWV and I embossed it with my cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder.

The waves are from Life Is a Beach.  I used the “border” layer and cut two of them at 1 inch.  Page 45. 
I handcut the darker blue water behind the waves and I then embossed them on the cuttlebug using the D’Vine Swirls folder.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the hop with us.  Your next fun summer stop is AnnMarie’s page

Keep cool and have a wonderful day!!!  Happy blogging!!!

  9. Nice card. I am envious when I see fellow crafters design a full scene on a card that takes real talent/vision to make a cohesive layout, which doesn't look busy/fussy. I keep seeing the paper doll cartridge...I might need to add that one to my cart library =) TFS!

    1. Thanks for the nice comment! I LOVE the paper doll carts. There's two of them and I use them both a lot!

  10. Lovely, fun, colorful layout. Love it, love it.
