Scuba bear

Hey kids!  Cindy back on the SBC blog today!  So, who is ready for summer?  I am :-)  I've got a cute summer home décor project to share with you.

TiP:  Use things in nature to enhance your projects if possible.

I recently found some cute little frames in the $3 dollar bins at Michaels.  I had a teal one and wanted to use it but the color was a bit bright.  So, I painted the frame with white Acrylic paint and then wiped some of it off before it dried for a more distressed look. 
Isn't that sweet Scuba Bear the cutest?  He comes from Meljen Designs who is one of our fabulous sponsors! 

Frame approx. 4" x 5"
DecoArt white acrylic paint
Core'dinations paper- teal color
Meljen's Designs - Scuba bear
watercolor pencils
Glossy Accents (used to make bubbles and to make his mask shiny)
Tim Holtz sanding tool
Cuttlebug embossing folder - musical flourish
Life is a Beach Cricut cart - seaweed @ 1", 1 1/4"
Sand and seashell from our beach vacation last summer :-)
Diamond Stickles (it's hard to see but I used it on the little fish)
pop dots

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope I've inspired you to make some fun home décor today!  Join us for more fun on our FB group.

I hope you have a blessed weekend!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
