Happy first day of Summer! Thanks for stopping by to see my first creation for the The Scrapoholic's Officially Summer blog hop. You should have come here from Sarah.
I had so much fun creating this Surf Shack. I've been thinking about it for almost a month now and finally did it. It took me a couple of days to get it finished. About halfway through, my thirteen-year-old daughter told me it was "too symmetrical". I tried to make it a little more off kilter just for her!
The file is from SVG Cuts and is the Peony Cottage. I also used Beach Bum I and Beach Bum II to complete the Surf Shack look. The only cut I really altered is the front door. It is the bottom piece of the surfboard from Beach Bum II. I made it shorter and wider than a regular surfboard. I used just plain cardstock for all of the cuts.
The roof is paper raffia found in the gift wrap aisle at Michael's. I did try to rough it up a bit to give it more of a weathered look. The paper for the shack is plain craft paper-style cardstock. I did run the accent pieces through the cuttlebug with Tim Holz' woodgrain embossing folder and then chalked them up to emphasize the woodgrain.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of my Surf Shack and be sure to come have a look tomorrow to see what I've cooked up for Day Two of the Officially Summer blog hop. Next on the hop is Abby.
