Day at the Beach
Create a project related to the beach

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my project for this week:

 When I saw the 12 tags of 2014 Tim Holtz tag for July I had to make one! This was so cool - check out the link for step by step directions to complete this tag. I used the Create A Critter and Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridges to cut my shells, seahorse and water plants.

I embossed clear acetate with a bubble embossing folder to go over top my distressed tag - love that process!!

 I used some Stampendous Shabby White embossing powder, which has large and small white embossing powder pieces as well as flecks of gold - so pretty!

I used Tim's recipe to create the sand on the bottom - I didn't have exactly the same ingredients, but it still worked using UTEE, Glossy Accents and embossing powders. It looks so shimmery in the light!

I followed Tim's instructions to cover the seahorse, which I cut from watercolour paper. I love how the Distress Stain seeps into the cracks of the Clear Rock Candy Crackle. I added a bit of Perfect Pearls mist over the plants to add a little glimmer.

This tag looks perfect on my seaside summer mantle!
