"Because every day should feel like a day at the beach."
If you are a beach lover, you can totally relate to this quote...just hearing the word puts you into a relaxed and laid back state of mind, right?
Most people I know love the beach...we feel so renewed and refreshed after hearing the ocean and breathing in all that fabulous salt scented air...and the feel of the sand between the toes when walking along the shore line, finding that special shell, and laughing at the antics of the silly shore birds just add to the unique appeal of the beach.
One of my favorite vacations while growing up was when my family, along with the families of my mom's two sisters, rented a beach house along the Jersey shore. I loved getting into that bathing suit first thing in the morning (and staying in it ALL day), and spending the day by the ocean was such an amazing time. There was always a new sand castle to build, a new shell to find, cool water to splash in, and, of course, the waves to play in. By the end of the day, we were totally exhausted, but a good kind of exhaustion...well, at least for us cousins (can't really speak for the moms :)!).
Those fabulous memories exploded into a brand new album being launched for pre-order today..."BEACH TOWN"!
If you love the nostalgic and vintage-shabby look of many coastal towns, you will absolutely love the look and feel of this handmade, artsy album.
One look at the super dimensional cover and you are taken there...for sure, the colors and textures of the cover set the tone and create the vibe of a slightly shabby, but totally relaxing, happy place.
The album is a hand-stitched journal style book made with sturdy watercolor paper, perfect for creating those painted/stained backgrounds on each page.
There are lots of pouches and pockets throughout the book...perfect for all the photos and journaling.
There's even a page filled with tiny hand-stitched books...what better way to add those little pics and tell those stories, right?
What beach town would be complete without fabulous beach "cottages"...some bigger than others, of course! And, in this album, you get to design your own with how you arrange your windows and the colors you paint your house, trims, windows and door.
Oh, yes, people. Just move me in!!!!
And, of course, beaches and bikes...kind of like a PB&J kind of thing.
OK, are you there yet? Can you feel the breezes and smell the ocean air? Maybe you've been transported back in time to that special family beach vacation, or it could be you are giddy with anticipation for a beach vacation you have coming up.
If you are there...and are "feeling all the feels"...then this is the perfect album for you.
There are twelve background surfaces on which you will be creating...and lots more when you count the tags and mini books pages included on those backgrounds. Each detailed page is kitted for you with cool papers, trims and embellishments (many of which you will learn to create)...you'll just need to add paints, some crackle texture paste, and some alphabet rubber stamps to make the book uniquely yours. The kit comes with a full set of instructions with lots of photos...those instructions will be sent to you digitally after the kits are shipped.
This project is available for pre-order right now...and kits will begin shipping the week of June 18th.
