Did you start out at www.just-a-scrappin.blogspot.com? Well then, here we go!
Hi there all you crafters, scrapbookers, cardmakers, etc....Here is my first attempt at making a shadow box.
I bought the 12 x 14 inch wood framed box at Michaels Craft store. It is not glass but plastic. I started out with an 12 x 12 off white base, then cut a 2 inch strip of craft card stock and punched it with my shell Martha Stewart punch. I used Amercian Craft foam lettering for the "Summer Lovin'". The sun was cut out at 3 inches from Life's A Beach Cricut cartridge. I then inked the edges with Momento Orange. The mat for the picture is 4 x 6. It was a scrap. The dolphin is cut from Life's A Beach also at 2 inches. I hand drew and cut the splashes. I used Core paper from Joanns and ripped it to show light blue on the inside. I added a few glitter bubbles by using zip glue in a circle shape and white glitter. I ripped the brown as well. The sand is from Mudpuddles (muddpuddles.net) that I bought from a scrapbooking expo I attended last year. It's sand with a glue type substance. I put it on the brown paper as well as outside on the frame. I bought the shells from Michaels which I just placed inside the frame. The star fish are from Oriental Trading Co. Believe it or not...they are real. I didn't know that when I bought them. I thought they'd be plastic. I put some inside the frame as well as in the left corner on the outside.
I hope you and enjoy and have a sun shiny day! Kimberly
