Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop–the Beach!

TE blast blog hop

Welcome to another TE Blog Hop. This is my third, you can see my other projects here Blast from the Past 1 and here Blast from the Past 2.

TE blog hop beach

I love the paper from Imaginisce and the stamps from the Hanging Out: Beach set! I finally remembered to use the sketch specially designed for the hop! I wasn’t sure at first because I had planned to do a ‘scene’ much like last month’s card but I don’t want to seem to be a one trick pony (hee hee) so I changed my plan and came up with this. Still a bit of a ‘scene’ with the tree and lanterns but not a full scene.

I hand cut the scalloped border and the waves that overlap the striped paper. I used a TON of foam dots. The top of the tree is up on 3, the middle and left side on 2 and the bottom on 1. The little punch out on the sign is on 1, the middle lantern is on two and the other lantern is on 1 too. SO many I am classifying this as a 3-D project!!

I hope you enjoyed my project and will come back for more! I have subscription thingies on my sidebar! Now, off you go to check out the rest of the hop!

Enjoy, Rebecca
