FCCB Challenge #123: Jump In and Cool Off

Hello Everyone,

Its Monday so there is another challenge up at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog! This week I am very excited to be showcasing products from our sponsor Canvas Corp.

This week our Challenge is Jump In and Cool Off! We challenge you to make a project with a water theme (pool, beach, water park, etc.). To make my project I had a choice of the Beach Collection or the Nautical Collection. I chose the Nautical Collection to work with. Here is a look at the papers and other goodies I had to play with.

 I received 24 sheets of this gorgeous paper, cork sheet, kraft cards and envelopes, mini canvas flags and hemp rope.

Box opened

I decided to make a card box set for my project with a Nautical Theme. I was really inspired by the anchors on the paper. I cut my sailboat and the shape card from Just a Note cartridge and the anchors and ship's wheel from Life is a Beach cartridge. I used some of the Canvas Corp paper in my E2 and it cuts beautifully.

I started with a wooden craft box for and painted the inside of the box with a beige paint then covered the outside with the Anchors and Red dots papers. I also added a little anchor to the envelop to coordinate with the box set.

 Shape Card

 Shape card opened

 Set of 5 cards and envelopes included in the box set

The flags were lightly inked 

Opened box, the edges were also inked. I copied the design of the cards in the box so that the recipient of the set will have a reminder of the cards after sending them out. 

What was used:
Canvas Corp Nautical Paper Collection
Canvas Corp Canvas Minis
Canvas Corp Hemp cord
Canvas Corp 5 X 7 Kraft Cards and Envelopes
Cricut Just a Note
Cricut Life is a Beach
Art Minds Craft Box
Other plain card stock
EK Success Scalloped Scallop Edge Punch
Colorbox Chalk Inks
Apple Barrel Beige Craft Paint

I hope you will join us this week for our challenge one lucky person will come away with a Prize Package from Canvas Corp. Please stop by Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog and see the inspiring projects from rest of the DT and join in with us.
