Under The Boardwalk, Down By The Sea...

 Hey there y'all! Aymee Gandy of 'A Scraphappy Southernbelle' here with you today. I hope all of you are having a grand day so far!

I don't know about you, but have you ever had one of those days when you sit and stare at blank paper in your scrapbooking room? This happened to me a few weeks ago when I created this project. I had been on a big sewing kick, working every single day, scrapbooking from dawn until dusk and all creative mojo was at rock bottom. So I started to dig through my Momenta supplies and kept going back to their flourish stickers. I just love their flourish stickers and all of a sudden an idea that I had seen a while back hit me...to use the flourish stickers as 'sea weed.' I had seen this idea from the talented Erin Morehouse. I have had the privilege to design with Erin on a couple of DT's and she is amazing! Her work always speaks to me. Check out her fish project HERE. I wanted to make sure I gave her proper credit for scraplifting her sea weed idea. Thanks Erin for the inspiration! You rock girlfriend!
Here is the card that I created...

"Hi"

Cardstock, Patterned Paper, Stickers-Momenta
Crinkle Ribbon, Stamp: My Craft Spot
Rhinestones: Michael's
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Oval Cutter: Creative Memories
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Cartridges: Create A Critter, Life Is A Beach
Adhesive: Helmar, ZIG Memory System

This card is in the shape of a fish bowl. The fish bowl is from the 'Create A Critter' Cricut cartridge. I used my Gypsy to weld the 'shadow' fishbowl to create the card. I then added some layers. Last, I added stickers to finish off the card.
 Aren't these puffy stickers so cute? I love them! They make me smile!
I bunched up crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot to create the 'sand' in my fish bowl.
 More dimension...
 For the inside of the card, I cut the word 'friends' out using the "Life's A Beach" cartridge and I stamped my sentiment using a stamp from My Craft Spot.
I hope you have enjoyed this project! Thanks for visiting us today at the Sassy blog! We hope to see you again soon! Happy Scrappin'!!!
