Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop-Worst Day at the Beach

TE blast blog hop

Welcome to another TE blog hop! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the projects before mine! The theme this month was masculine cards. I have to admit, I used to be afraid of them but when you live in a house with 3 guys you have to get good at them pretty quickly!

The sentiment came out a bit light, in case you can’t read it, it says, “The worst day at the beach is better than the best day at work.” AMEN! So, how do you make a beach themed card without using any beach themed stamps? Well, you start by using the boxers from the Hangin’ Out set and stamp them on patterned paper to make swim trunks. Then you steal the worst day sentiment from the Crafty Expressions set. And since ‘at the beach’ isn’t an fill-in option, you use JustRite stamps! Cool huh?

If you like my card, I hope you will visit again to check out my work; I have subscription thingies on my sidebar. If you’d like to see some of my blog hop projects from previous months, just click on the Blast tag at the bottom of this post. I love your sweet comments, I’m feeling yucky today and almost didn’t participate so even a short comment would make my day!

Enjoy, Rebecca
