Sandcastle Scrapbook Layout

Published April 1, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

During the scrapbookusaexpo 2012 me and my sister chose to experience there VIP seat treatment. this entailed us receiving early entry (even before the early bird shoppers), a free cricut apron, seating in the exclusive VIP area, a make and take class, treats, a VIP host and an opportunity to enter into a layout page contest.

the contest: there were about 5-6 prizes to be rewards. The terms for entering was to submit a summer type scrapbook layout for judging.

I choose a fun array of photos from a terrific beach trip from years ago. Me and the same sister that accompanied me to the expo made a sandcastle on rock away beach in Oregon. Then decided to destroy thus said sandcastle before leaving. 🙂

This is a shot of what the 2 page layout looks like side by side (Sandcastle To destroy or not to destroy)

Here is my hand drawn sandcastle title. After I sketched it out with a pencil, I took my black marker and outlined it. Then taking 2 different blue markers filled the top portion in with the lighter blue and made waves with the darker blue. For the bottom I used doodlebugs design inc’s crushed flock, color light brown. To apply the flock. I applied liquid craft glue evenly where I wanted the flock, sprinkled it on top and shook the lose remaining flock onto a spare piece of paper and put back into the bottle.
To make the title pop even more I glued the title onto a piece of black card stock and used my Imaginise distresser around the edges. Then I chose to do it again but mounting it to a Fushia piece of paper this time and repeating the process.


I brought along with me some of my handmade die cuts. The little oysters from Alice in Wonderland are ones I make and sell on my Etsy site. click here. I thought adding these cute little oysters would be perfect for a beach layout.




Here are some of the products I used to make this layout. want 2 scrap black pearl bling, Imaginisce Destressor, Doodlebugs Design crushed flock, and my favorite adhesive runner Scotch advanced tape glider.

If you have any questions on how I made this page. Please let me know.
