I grew up playing in the sand on San Diego beaches. During my teenage years, I drew a heart, or two, with different initials. You know what I mean? Ocean waves serve as an eraser, but, once written those memories remain in your heart forever.

writing in the sand


A card base (8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″) of Sahara Sand is a natural choice, right? And, it blends beautifully with the Sand & Sea Designer Paper. It looks so real, I felt like I needed to brush the sand off my work table. 

A Be Mine Stitched Die, in the shape of a heart, was used to “draw” my heart in the sand. Then, I used Well Written Dies to write “love you” in the sand with Crumb Cake Cardstock.

After layering the heart for thickness, I raised it on Dimensionals.


Seaweed was created with the large Seaside & Seashells Die and Crumb Cake Cardstock. After using the Seashells Embossing Folder on the cut cardstock, I snipped a piece, and added it to the scene.


The two shells and starfish are from the Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, stamped in Sahara Sand Ink, Blushing Bride Ink, and Smoky Slate Ink, on Basic White Cardstock. After fussy cutting the shells along their lines, I molded them with my fingers, and attached them with Dimensionals.

The Opal Rounds are so gorgeous, I couldn’t resist adding a few, as a final touch.


I was inspired by the Paper Players.
