Keeping It Slim with Sand & Sea

I love the beach! When my toes are in the sand, I’m in my happy place! I enjoy combing the shore for shells and sea glass. Just smelling the salt air and listening to the waves relaxes me like nothing else. I am dreaming of a beach vacation! Next week is my two weeks “post vaccine” and after a year of staying home I am ready for some sand & sea! My husband and I are trying to decide on a new beach destination (in the USA) to visit. What’s your favorite beach vacation? I’d love for you to leave a comment below and help us decide.

Today I’ve combined my love for the sand & sea with a fun slimline card. (*The slimline card fits in a business size envelope and doesn’t cost any extra to mail!)

I used products from the Sand & Sea Collection to create my card.

The stamp set has great and versatile sentiments as well as beach images. The dies are awesome on their own and coordinate with the Seashells 3D Embossing folder. You can make an incredible background with this embossing folder or use the large die to cut the embossed shells like I did. I used the pearlescent paper and love the look! (You could sponge color on the embossed shells if you want.) Look at the texture you get from this embossing folder!

I like to bring a little of the beach home with me!
My sand collection from my travels. Visit www.juststampin.com for inspiration and Stampin' Up! supplies.I have a sand collection from all the different beaches I’ve visited. (Oh the stories I could tell about some of this sand! FYI…trying to go through customs with sand in a plastic bag is not always easy!  LOL) I love the different colors and textures. It’s amazing how different the sand is from beach to beach. I have sand from as far north as Prince Edward Island and as far south as Cancun, Mexico. I also have sand from as far west as Hawaii and as far east as Normandy, France. I spend a lot of time on the east coast and have collected sand from Maine to Florida. My favorite is the pink sand from Bermuda! This is such a fun collection and brings a smile to my face.  It’s inexpensive and easy to document my travels with some Avery labels on jars. I wonder where my next sand will be from???? Help me decide! Leave a comment below suggesting a great beach getaway!

Do you like creating slimline cards? Here’s some I’ve shared previously. This size card is great for stamping images, showcasing embossing, or layering Designer Series Paper. It’s also a great size for sending a handwritten note as there’s plenty of space to write inside. *Click on the image to view the original post.

March 2021 Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet To Go & Second Chance Offer!

I have another fun kit for you this month! Because it is my birthday month you can be sure to find some birthday card ideas enclosed in this month’s kit.  As always my kits are intended to be versatile so you can use different stamps sets that you already have. (Of course I am not opposed to you purchasing some from me!! LOL)  I don’t showcase the contents of my kits in advance. If you like the style of cards and projects I showcase on my blog, you’ll be receiving the same style in my kits. (*One card is always a fun fold.) I can’t wait for you to see this month’s kit!!! The cards are perfect for birthday, sympathy, thinking of you, thank you, etc.! So versatile! Here’s the details if you are interested in my monthly kit:

Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet TO GO cost:  $20 (includes shipping and handling)
*SOLD OUT  3/16/21

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t need a specific stamp set. And you don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit and shipped to you!  You just need to stamp and adhere.

Here’s one of the cards and 3D project from last month’s kit.

*Second Chance Offer

I was able to order more of the Flower & Field Designer Series Paper before it retired. If you would like to purchase one or more cards & coordinating basket (with tutorial), email me with “Flower & Field Set” in the subject line. The cost is $8 per set (includes shipping). Follow the directions above to send payment via paypal. *These are available to ship immediately. DSP and cardstock colors vary. The matching card & basket would be great for Easter, Mother’s Day, birthday, hostess gift, etc. You can substitute a different word die, add a stamped sentiment, or choose to omit the sentiment on the front and just stamp or add a handwritten note inside. The choice is up to you!

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

I love your kits. Your attention to detail is amazing. Instructions are fantastic and precise so that each item is quick and easy to put together. The pictures are a big plus in following the instructions.. Thank you so much for making these kits available to us.   Bernice P

You do such thoughtful and intriguing projects! Please know that your talents and creativity are appreciated! (And your directions are a retired teacher’s dream!)  Nancy B.

My kit arrived today and I’m so excited!  What great cards and I love the flexibility.  They’re beautiful.   Thanks, Susan

I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

*Please note… I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before the deadline.

Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!
