Beachy Tote and Pocketbook
Hello Everyone! If you've been following my blog you'll know that ODBD have released some gabby new dies this month - Timeless Tote, Timeless Tote Layers and Petite Pocketbook. Well I'd been playing around in my craft room and even though it's *supposed* to be Autumn here in Australia, we had such a hot week that it felt like Summer, which made me think that I could make the Timeless Tote into a Beach Bag! I went digging into my paper and found ODBD's By The Shore Collection and used the surfboard paper with it's bold, bright colours and cut that with the Timeless Tote Layers. The sentiment is from Aloha stamp set and for those of us not familiar with Hawaiian language, this means Happy Birthday - how fun is that! To accent and add even more POP, I created a flower with Hibiscus Die and Tropical Leaves Die.
Due to the size of the surfboards on the paper, I couldn't really make a matching Petite Pocketbook without chopping them into tiny pieces. I've used the 'sand' paper that was at the bottom of the surfboard paper and matched it with this super cute palm tree paper from By The Shore Collection. I've finished it with a decorative brad.
Both the Tote and the Pocketbook have been created from Kraft Cardstock to give a nice natural/beachy feel. :)
