Dreaming of the Beach Framed Art Sampler

Hi Crafty Friends!

I am super excited to share this month's framed art sampler with you.
It's all about the beach.

I love everything about it! The colors, (a new one!) the images, and the feel of it.
This project uses only five colors! Crumb Cake, Soft Sea Foam, Night of Navy, So Saffron, and Early Espresso.
Here are the measurements:

Crumb Cake, 9" x 9"
2 small squares: Whisper White, 2" x 2", Soft Sea Foam, 2 1/4" x 2 1/4", Night of Navy, 2 3/8" x 2 3/8"
2 medium rectangles: Whisper White and Wood Texture DSP, 2" x 4 1/2, Soft Sea Foam, 2 1/4" x 4 3/4", Night of Navy, 2 3/8" x 4 7/8"
Large rectangle: Whisper White, 2" x 7 1/8, Soft Sea Foam, 2 1/4" x 7 3/8", Night of Navy, 2 3/8" x 7 1/2"

The left top square is the sand, sea, and birds from the High Tide set. The middle square uses the Sea of Textures stamp set and the coordinating Under the Sea dies.

The vertical medium rectangle shows off the lovely lighthouse from High Tide, I used the Stamparatus to make stamping the light house easy. It's stamped in Crumb Cake and Night of Navy.

I love this middle panel! It's the feature of the project. It shows off the Sea of Textures stamp set and the Under the Sea framelits. There are so many fun details in this bundle.

The bottom panel is so peaceful. The sea is created by stamping the water stamp from High Tide lots of times in Night of Navy. Then I stamped and colored two sets of the sweet little boats from the Lilypad Lake set. Luckily there are framelits to cut out the boats. And the cute little sun die cut is in the same set.

I hope you like it as much as I do. It would be a great gift or great to keep for yourself.
I put it in a 9" x 9' shadow box frame from Michael's.

The new color and stamp sets will be available in our new Annual catalog starting June 1. Or join my team now and you can order them in your starter kit! Join my team before May 31 and I'll make a sampler for you for free! Frame not included.

I have catalogs! If you're local, get one in any class, or message me ( to stop by and pick one up. I'll also have them (and lots of free fun) at my Open House event on June 10. Live farther away? If you've ordered from me in the last 6 months, I'll send you one free. Haven't ordered in a while? The catalog is still free, you just pay $7 for shipping.

Thanks for checking out my blog today.I hope that you will add samplers to your crafty time. They are so much fun. I love comments, so feel free to leave one. 
I'll close with some pics of the project all framed up.

Stay Crafty!
