Just Us Girls #727 -- MOODBOARD Week

Carol is hosting MOODBOARD week at Just Us Girls.  This week, take your inspiration from the photo above (a larger version of the photo is on the site at Just Us Girls).  

I focused on the beach accessories. I live in South Florida, on the beach, and love to send "Florida" cards to people.  To this end, I have a newish set from Papertrey Ink called Beach Bag. The bag itself can hold a gift card if desired. All the bag items are sturdy enough that it would be fun to make an asymmetrical card. I, however, mounted everything on an A2 card base.  Given the layers, the card is quite thick. One fun thing... it is a great way to use up scraps.  Except for the background, I did not pull out any new sheets of cardstock or DSP.  Love cleaning up the scrap basket. At the last minute, I added several shell sequins. I don't remember where I got these but they are used for nail decoration.

Continuing with my New Year's resolution, I made two additional cards for future use.

Great minds! I love how we used the same set, but our cards look so different! I love your bright colours and now you've inspired me to make more:)

You've definitely collected all the accessories needed for a trip to the beach and packed them into an oh-so-pretty purse. Love this!

I just love all of these fun dies! The perfect inspired card!

Carol said...

Great cards!!! Love that set. I need to get it out. Love your thinking: do 2-3 cards at once while the stuff is out on the desk!

This card just screams beach! Love it!

The fun thing about that set, Elizabeth, is you can use different papers and never get tired of creating with it. All of your combinations are such fun.

I just hit "send" on the purchase of this set because of sever appearances of projects made with it lately, including this (and these) wonderful cards of yours. You know I am a Jersey Shore girl, and this set is so delightful to share the love. Thanks for the inspiration.

You had me with the cute polka dot hat! Love them all Elizabeth!
