Sand Castles in the Sun!

Hello hello! Tuesday already?! Where did the weekend go?!

For todays card I have a sweet little card...it's a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square...I love these cards, because although they are smaller, they really aren't that much smaller, just a tiny bit...and square cards are soooo much fun!

My card uses one of the new RAM stamps just released this past weekend...it's called Day at the Beach. I just love that little sweety, she is just too cute! Love the pudgy little cheeks and the sweet sand castle, and since the beach is just a short walk from our house I can relate to this adorable image...we are constantly building castles! Hmmm maybe I'll make a scrapbook page with this image soon!

Anywho here is a list of supplies I've used on this card...I hope you like it!


Stamps: A Day at the Beach

Ink: stazon black

Paper: June bug DP by basic Grey, baja breeze, white

Accessories: rhinestones, stars, watercolor pencils, blender pens, colluzzle

Thank you sooo much for looking and come back soon!

Washer robot...

Hello ladies and gents! I have a fun new project for you today...it's my turn to post here on Paperworks Co. and I thought I would wonder off the card scrapbook page for a hot minute...so I made a bracelet instead!

I used a giant washer from the hardware store and added some designer paper to it (This one is called Simple pleasures and it's by Three Bugs in a Rug) Once I sanded around the edge with sand paper I then used a precision file set by Bagis Grey to file the inside...you can also use a circle punch that fits, but i choose this, it's easier for me since I don't have a bunch of punches!

I then stamped the Jam Tinheart robot image from the Tinheart Family collection and used some leather cord and looped it through and tied in a knot, I will get a clasp, but the ones I had at home did not fit so I'll have to get some bigger clasps at the bead shop here in town.

Now if you wanted to get the paper to be more protected I recommend adding crystal effect or a two part epoxi over the image...I will probably br adding some crytal effects but I needed more time for it to dry before adding the leather and wanted to get it photo'd to show you all!

Thanks so much for looking and I hope you like my off the paper project! If you make one of these please leave a comment, I would love to see what you all come up with!
