It’s been a rainy day today. All day. Hasn’t stopped yet.
I don’t mind because that means I don’t have to feel guilty to lock myself in my craft room and do what I enjoy the most…..paper crafting.
I made something I’ve been wanting to make for a very long time and I had just the perfect paper for it.
This Sailboat – Zeilboot is from the Dutch webshop Creatieve Papier Uitspattigen and is not only a boat but also a box.
It’s very easy to make (there’s a picture tutorial enclosed in the file), weighs practically nothing and isn’t too large.
I made mine from AC Cardstock in Turf and White along with patterned paper from DCWV “Costal” and some pearl paper. I inked the edges with Distress Ink in a brown color.
I decorated with a few Prima flowers and some Prima gems + pearls.
She is a thing of beauty and is ready to sail out into the world – wonder where she’ll go?
When deciding on which of the papers in the stack I would use, I was inspired by one of the pictures on the front of the stack – had to do this!
This is the Crate from the Caramel Apple Pie kit by SVG Cuts. Just perfect for all those beach tresures you find in Summer.
It’s made from AC Cardstock in White and more papers from the “Costal” stack.
I inked all edges with Distress ink in a brown nuance and embossed the rectangular side panels with a wood grain embossing folder from Darice.
I also cut out some words from the stack and adhered them onto the front with pop dots.
Finally I decorated the crate with a few flowers and gems from Prima and added some small “nail heads” to the side planks and the wording.
Although you can’t really tell from the picture, this gorgeous beach themed paper from DCWV has several sheets with pearl accents and it’s so beautiful. Used some on the sides of the crate and also on the inside front and back pieces.
It’s still raining outside – will properbly continue all night. I didn’t get my steps in either. I don’t care. I spent my day making a Summery project so I had lots of sunshine in my room 🙂 Don’t they just look perfect together?
