SUMMER FUN - Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Creative Circle Design Team Hop!  This month, the theme is "Summer Fun".  I couldn't think of anything more fun that watching my Grandsons do handstands on the beach last summer.

To commemorate the day, I decided to make a special wall hanging. I purchased the frame at the Dollar Store for next to nothing. It was a black frame and I spray-painted it white. Then I got out my all time favorite beach stamp set "Seaside Shore".

I used Soft Sky cardstock for the background. The sand is Crumb Cake, and the seaweed is Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Calypso. But oh how I miss that wonderful Designer Series Paper (retired) that matched this stamp set. The fish and shells are stamped with Peekaboo Peach, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party inks. I inked each piece around the edges with the same color ink as the stamped image.

Here's some close-ups. I have made several cards and a sampler using this set. You can see those HERE. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter and my Fine Tip Glue Pen to add the sparkle.

Now let's go see what awesome creation that Liz has created for us. Follow the link below and see the all the team's creations!

Happy Stamping!

Everything used to make this creation (except the picture frame) is available in my online store:


  1. Magnificent display! I really need to do one!

  2. It is really very nice! It gives me an idea to make a gift to my father. Thank you Sandra.

  3. What a fun summer frame- I love it! TFS!!

  4. very beautiful frame! Thanks for sharing!

  5. It's hard to have any complaints about this place. It's easy to get a drink since they actually keep enough bartenders working at once, and you'll almost always find a place to sit. I love the vibe, the area for rental spaces for parties, the people and the food at this place.
