Life's still a beach

You all said such nice things about my beach hut journal that I was inspired to make another one. I really wanted to make one using the bright striped paper from the Petals & Paisleys collection but I didn’t have quite a full sheet. So I was delighted to find that I did have a full sheet of this striped paper from my favourite collection, Cutie Pie. I’ve used this so much that I can’t believe I still have so much left!

While I was searching through my Designer Papers I discovered the Cutie Pie floral sheet and realised that the flowers are idea for use with the Three For You punch, so this beach hut has flowers round the door.

The sign this time is a shell image from Stipple Celebrations, a Level 3 hostess set.

I had planned to make the front door open on this one but it didn’t quite work out so, in the end, I just stuck the hinges down with glue dots. Maybe next time.

For details of how to make this journal, please click here.
