Just Beachy

Hey yall! Happy Friday! I wanted to hop online and blog right quick. My in laws have been here all week and we have been super busy. We went back to NYC earlier in the week and are going to try to go to DC today/tomorrow. We are having so much fun!!!
Anyways, I did a Helmar blog post this week and wanted to share my layout for that with ya. I used 2 sizes of Helmar Zap Dots, Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive, Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, and the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner. Our feature partners this week are My Stamp Box and Fancy Pants Designs.
Here is the layout I created....'Just Beachy.' I began by pulling out the stamp set from My Stamp Box and stamping some circles onto my background paper using green craft paint. All paper, as well as the ball fringe and clear embellishments are from Fancy Pants Designs. I love these papers from Fancy Pants Designs...they are prefect for scrapping your summer vacation. This pic is of my nephew Carter enjoying the beach. The sun and flowers are clear, transparency embellishments. I sprayed the back of these with the Helmar V2 Vellum Adhesive and let them sit for 5 minutes. This allows the glue time to set up and become tacky. I then adhered them onto some white cardstock and cut them out. Next, I used Helmar Zap Dots to pop them up a tad on my page and added some rhinestones for some bling. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere my ball fringe. The alpha's are from My Mind's Eye and Making Memories. Also, I used the Purple Cows Freestyle Mouse to cut the 'angle' in the top of my patterned paper. I was going for a 'wave' look to mimic the waves in the ocean. I just adore the Purple Cows Freestyle Mouse! It is like cutting butter! It cuts so smooth and is becoming one of my favorite scrappy tools.
To show a bit of the dimension....


Thanks for stoppin' by today! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Take care of yourselves and Happy Scrappin'!!!!
