I'm Thinking Summer

My oh my how it is time to soak up the sun!!!! I'm thinking sandy beaches and warm sunshine. Yes, I've got the vacation blues, wishing I was at the beach. That's my inspiration for my project I'm sharing with you today to remind you of our month long challenge - Accordion fold AND/OR Paper piecing. Read all about it HERE. I started with the Palm Tree and the sand castle from the Beach Accessories, all rubber stamps and both paper pieced. My accordian fold card opens up to reveal...

 A mini photo book of beach pictures from years ago. My the boys look small!! I included Sunbathing Beach Babe in her paper pieced swim suit and glossy accented sunglasses. All the rubber stamps used can be found HERE, under the Summer Fun category. Now the accordion fold technique calls for the front and back covers to be from chipboard. I made mine by adhering 4 layers of card stock together and covering front and back with designer papers. A fun project indeed. We look forward to seeing your creations for our Paper pieced AND/OR Accordion fold card month long challenge. 


  1. OH MY WOW!!! Really?!?! This is amazing! I love how you turned it into a fun photo book / memory keeper! What a great idea!
