G45 By The Sea Wall Hanging


I'm late with blogging this project, but here is a By The Sea creation I made for Graphic 45's booth at CHA last month. This project (along with an amazing altered matchbook box by the fabulous Nichola) was featured on the blog last week!

I was inspired to make a lifesaver after a trip to the O.C. (Oregon Coast) back in December. Real lifesavers were not an option to alter - this project had to be small for the booth! So I decided to make my own using upcycled cardboard. I simply cut out a circle, traced it onto cardboard, then cut the cardboard. I made a smaller circle and used that shape for the center. Then I added a hefty dosage of fussy cutting and some fun little chipboard shapes from Gina's Designs (and some glitter!). How I love By The Sea!

I have more By The Sea projects in store ... stay tuned!
