The beautiful sunshine and these fabulous products from Authentique and Petaloo inspired me to create a beachy fun layout. I knew when I found these vintage pics of Marilyn Monroe, they would be perfect for this project.
I love the "Anchored" collection. The red/white/blue nautical theme papers are so versatile. I used a journaling card for my title. What a great saying, "Keep calm and stay anchored". What's more calming than a day at the beach?
And have I mentioned...these Petaloo projects are amazing! I used large and small flowers, seashell stick pins, decorative trim, and tiny loose seashells. I added burlap trim for some additional beachy texture and tiny aqua crystals that remind me of water

Good Morning! I created a fun summery shadowbox for you today using Authentique's Anchored Collection and Petaloo products. I started with a fun SPC shadowbox, then started layering all of my pieces inside.
To start, I cut down a piece of Embark paper. Then, I cut the boat using my Silhouette Cameo (Secure, Sailing, Cruise & Details). I then layered the waves using Calm and Pacific papers. I wanted some dimension, so added a pure white piece of cardstock for the sail, and used some thick dimensional adhesive to make it stand out.
I also added dimension, by only partially gluing down the top layer of the waves, then bended them to stand out more. The flag on the boat is also just slightly furled. Instead of the mast, I used part of the border stickers from the Details sheet.
To make the sentiment stand out, I used some more dimensional adhesive to pop out the Details sticker, then added two of the Petaloo Sea Shell Stick Pins for interest. Then, before closing up the image in the shadowbox, I added the Petaloo Bag of Sea Shells. I love how the sea shells will move as the piece gets moved around.
Lastly, I used my Xyron 9" Creative Station to attach the pieces of Secure to the outside of the shadowbox, then sanded down the edges. Now it's ready to be displayed and help welcome Summer!
