Designer Challenge - Summer Theme!

Welcome to the new designer challenge with My Creative Time. Today's challenge is by team member, Amy. I had so much fun with this one, I hope you will play along and link up with us for this super fun Summer Theme challenge...any project you want to make, as long as it is summer themed! PLUS a drawing. Can't beat that!

I made this beach theme shaker magnet. Isn't it fun?! The base is the large polaroid frame die, turned upside down.


My flower was supposed to be something like a hibiscus. Gotta work on that. But I do like the flower even though it's not as hibiscus-ish as I was going for. LOL Tropical leaves and flip flops are dies by QK. The flip flops are made from that same watercolor paper I made for Tag it Tuesday.

I even made the little crab and seashells...with shrink film! and the background is sandpaper! :) This is one of my fave projects ever!

  1. Your magnet is awesome gosh what a fantastic idea how in the world did you come up with this anyway. I think your flower is perfect and your flip flops along with all of your other cutie patootie summer cuts are awesome too. Then to top it off it's a shaker WOW girl you rocked this challenge.

  8. Awesome project and loved seeing how you used that die for the shaker box. I just made one with the die the other day. I hadn't thought of making it into a magnet. That's a fabulous idea and one I'm definitely going to try.

  9. I have been out of commission...travel followed by illness...so this was a fabulous welcome back to my favorite blogger! Hibiscus or not, the bloom is glorious. I love all of your shaker projects, but this is going to be a favorite with it's tropic-infused details and fun-in-the-sun footwear! Thanks for putting a smile on this haggard face!

  10. So clever to shrink your shaker box embellishments. I like that you put them in there. What a pretty magnet. Hibiscus seems to have 5 petals...thinking maybe the Flower Petal Dies with a long single fuzzy like center poking up might work. There may be a punch that can be cut and rolled for the center. Great job on a very pretty and summery magnet!
