Beachside Delivery

What's better than getting your Carrabba's lunch delivered to you right on the beach!? Not much! We were given menus and ordered lunch that was delivered to us out on the beach, filled up, napped a little, read some, swam some, and had the best day ever... then repeated that for the next 5 days!

This layout is the first for an online class I'm taking called 28 Days of Sketches 2, with Lisa Day over at Big Picture Classes! The first sketch was great, and made this layout come together so easily!

I finally used a bit more from last year's Boardwalk kit by Studio Calico! I loved that kit but never really dug in too much.

  • The main piece of paper is "Enlighten" from the Sunshine Broadcast line by Sassafras
  • The squares were cut to 1.5" from the back of "London" paper from the Boarding Pass collection by October Afternoon, then I hand sewed around each one - that was def the longest part
  • The wood veneer and die cuts are from the Nantucket line by Pink Paislee
  • The trim is a Mistable Scallop Ribbon also from Pink Paislee, that I chose not to mist because it looked so good as it was, subtle! Then I tied some twine around it since plain twine seems to go really well with beachy themes!
  • The word "beachside" was done with Wonder thickers and for the word "delivery" I used Lovely Straw Foam Rubber Thickers from the Amy Tangerine collection, both by American Crafts
  • Finally, it's very subtle, but I added some washi tape on the top of the photos


  1. This vacation sounds awesome! Great layout!

  2. I absolutely love this layout! I have those wooden sea embellishments and your layout really inspires me to get them out and use them! Beautiful job!
