Bazzill Basics - Beach House collection and a GIVEAWAY!

Hi everybody!  I have something fun to share with you today.  Last month the good folks at Bazzill Basics sent me some goodies to play with - the new Beach House mini paper pack and Card Shoppe cardstocks. 



I had the best of intentions to create something as soon as the goodies arrived but I got a wee bit sidetracked finishing up my Two Peas workshop, getting ready for back to school, and basically living our lives at the football fields watching my oldest play and practice.  The good news is that even though this collection has a beach theme it can definitely be used for projects other than those planned for summer.  The colors are perfect for masculine themed cards and that is exactly what I created. 


My husband and I will be celebrating our 12 year wedding anniversary on September 23rd so I thought I would create a simple yet graphic card to commemorate the occasion.  And I'm rather impressed with myself that I'm actually ahead of the game and created this card early rather than waiting until the very last minute!  LOL


I choose three patterns from the mini print pack of Bazzill papers - a blue, red, and stripe - and then cut them using my Silhouette into these mod shapes.  I then stamped my sentiment with one of my favorite Technique Tuesday stamps by Ali Edwards using Stampin' Up! Early Espresso ink.  I like to use this color as an alternative to black (which can be a bit stark) especially when I'm using kraft cardstock.  I added a button from Fancy Pants tied with twine to hold my stamped banner in place. 

And now for the giveaway!  The good folks at Bazzill Basics sent me another set of Beach House papers and Card Shoppe cardstock to give away to one of my lucky blog readers.  Just leave a message on this post and be sure to include your email address so I can contact you if you've won.  This giveaway will be open until Thursday, September 20th and I'll announce the winner on Friday morning.  Good Luck!

Happy Anniversary!! I am sure your hubby will love the card. Very impressive indeed to have it ready so far in advance. We just celebrated our anniversary on the 5th and I was late with finishing the card. I didn't know Bazzill had pattern paper lines, very nice to see more great paper from Bazzill.

Lisa said...

I love this collection. I agree with you that the colors and patterns can definitely be used for more than beach pages. Your card turned out perfect. One of my favorite parts of this collection is the blue.
