One of the easiest things to 'recycle' for crafting are newspapers and magazines... they are a wealth of 'designer series paper'! For today's quick project I utilized the travel section of our newspaper. They were highlighting a beautiful vacation spot, Costa Rica, and I was instantly inspired. (Not to mention, full of day dreams about sunning myself on the beach, sandy flip flops, and leisurely dinners with my hubby... ya know, the kind where I'm not also shoveling baby food into my darling daughter's mouth whilst also wearing baby food?) The closest I can get at this point though is a Card-cation. ;)
The flip flops from the NEW Just Beachy stamp set (part of the Occasions Mini Catalog) were a perfect pairing for this beach themed card. Everything was mounted onto a card base of textured Tangerine Tango measuring 5.5" square. A layer of Tempting Turquoise really makes things pop. My last detail: 3 silver Vintage Brads... because anything shiny is also sassy!
