Fancy That Dies | Explore...

Hi Everyone!  I have a confession to make.  I have had this photo sitting in my "to-scrap" pile for quite a while.  Circa 2009.  Before Cam was born.  *grin*


I always knew I wanted to scrap about Liam and Tahlia exploring the beach but I just kept putting it off for some reason...

When I got this fantastic Fancy That Dies - Retro Globe and Stand, the entire layout just came together so easily.

"explore"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Authentique; Fancy That Dies - Retro Globe and Stand, Ginko Flourish, Film Strip, Zippity-do-da, Frilled Blossoms; alphas - My Favourite Things - Die-namics (By the Letter); other - Girls' Paperie cardstock stickers, GV sequins, black pen (sharpie); tools - machine stitching.


The globes actually come as a three pack + stand (as seen here).  I love that Australia is featured on one of the dies and that Tasmania hasn't been left off the map!  :)


To complete my layout, I've added a mix of other Fancy That Dies, to the top and bottom edges of the page.  The Ginko Flourish has been turned on its side in hopes that it looks a bit like drift wood and the Frilled Blossom is representing the sun!  LOL! Creative licence.. :)

If you would like to see more ideas on how to use these dies, head on over to The Papercraft Hub.

Thanks for visiting..x
