For my stop along the hop, I am excited to share the project I created for the magazine.
Check it out:








This first card, I used a SIL cut file and filled the shapes in with her digital papers.  I love the texture of this set. The colors are so pretty together I think too.
I cut the 2 starfish (well, my Cameo cut them for me) to add some dimension to the card along with the small bling gem for the sun.


This next card I created the rectangles and squares using my SIL program, filling them with the digital papers and the elements.  I printed it all as one piece so it's a nice flat card for mailing. I added crystal effects to the glasses and waves tips and a scribble across the sun, adding glitter to the waves and sun.
I think this one is pretty cool, I again layered everything using my SIL program and printed it as one piece.

I like how the clouds are just peeking in from the edges and the fish are coming up to see who's diving in..  I added crystal effects to the fins and the water splash.

Wow! I love these/ I am not very savvy when it comes to pulling things together digitally. I need to work on that. I just love how it all prints as one piece. That's amazing!
