Seaside Layout by Marta new Design Team Member

Hello everyone,

It's Marta here with my very first design team project for Cardz 'n' Scrapz
I must say it was a great pleasure to create this summer layout with all fantastic embellishments.
The whole project is stitched around and in the middle too.
I need to admit that sewing machine is recently my best friend.

To create this work I cut out lots of paper strips and squares. All the papers are from 8x8 double-sided Graphic 45 By the Sea Collection. I inked all the paper edges so they could stand out. 
The best to use is Distress Ink (black, brown) and inking tool.
I also used gorgeous Graphic 45 By the Sea stamps. I stamped few images on the seperate white card and then cut them out. In this way I created picture embellishments. Here are few close-ups.




Ship steering wheel (cut out with craft knife):

Lighthouse and beautiful decorative fish net. You can cut the net and decide of it's size that will suit your project.

 I also added cute little shells:

I also stamped some wording:

Materials used:

Graphic 45 By The Sea Double-Sided Paper Pad 8"X8"
Graphic 45 By The Sea Cling Stamp #1
U.S. Shell Decorative Fish Net Natural

 Shells Mini 50gm

I hope you have enjoyed this creation and I will see you soon for more seaside inspirations.
Have a great day everyone and create ! :)
