Create From Your Soul

It's been a bit since I've shared here! But I'm back with this great wall piece featuring Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard.

Saw the words and had to have them! Saw the Pearl Strings and had to have them! And everytime I see them I love them more....I know, I'm so weird!! LOL

All shimmery! I love the shimmer and it stays where it's put, unlike glitter LOL 



For the details and close ups head on over to the  Southern Ridge Blog and check it out. Don't forget to have a look at my amazing team mates projects created  using SRTC chipboard too! You will be inspired!

Thanks for being here and have a great week!

Christmas Ornaments in June

I think it has been established that I love the beach/ocean/tropical and would create with that theme all the time! I'm very fortunate that lots of my fave companies have that theme! :)

A few weeks ago I shared my first ornament created with fabulous Southern Ridge Trading Company chipboard, you can go back to check out that one HERE
I had a few more pieces left over and decided I needed another ornament. And here is the second one that I created.


The wooden tag is from SRTC and the wood like finish is actually a piece of napkin that I got from PEI last June. I used DW Gel Medium to put it on and it pulled apart in just the right places!

The full wooden tag.

This is where the napkin tore a bit and you can see the wood underneath.

The lobster is embossed in Candy Red and then again with the Fractured Ice over it. The crab is just done in the Candy Red.

Look at that gorgeous little crustacean!

The center word blocks are from Kaisercraft Beach Shack Collection and the baby seashells just had to be added.

I do have one more tag to work on and I plan on creating another beach themed ornament for my Christmas tree :)

Supplies Used:

Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week everyone!
