Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
Welcome to the Mini Occasions Blog Tour! I'm so glad you're stopping by my blog on this one day only virtual trip around the world. This is stop number 11. I have been playing with the Just Beachy stamp set, I HAD to buy this because my eldest son, Finlay, is obsessed with surfing, even though we live in Colorado, just about as far from the ocean as we could be!
I had a blast making these cute boxes using the Matchbox Big Shot die (also from the Occasions Mini). To add the greeting to this box I used a stamp from the Loads of Love accessories kit.
To make this box I punched out an oval using the wide oval punch, adhered a piece of window sheet behind the opening and stuck the fish on the front using a puffy Stampin' Dimensional. I love how you can see the other side of the Designer Series Paper peeking through.
The last project is one I photographed at this weekend's Spring Stamposium, I'm ashamed to say I didn't make a note of who stamped it but I love the glittery flip flops! If you know please let me know... (It was Cindy Russell! See update and link to her blog above)
Please be sure to leave me a comment to let me know you were here and I'll enter you into a drawing for all three Just Beachy boxes filled with little goodies for you! (I'll publish the winner's name on here tomorrow and you can send me your mailing address then.)
(Links to the other posts are now closed, watch out for the next tour!)
