A Great Project for Summer Beach Memories

I hope your Memorial Day weekend is off to a good start.  I wanted to share this great project idea that I saw at Absolutely Everything during one of our lunchtime breaks.  The two 7Gypsies solo shadowbox trays are hinged together and Pulley Wheels from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology line are used to support and balance the design.

On the left side, the pulley wheel becomes a ships wheel.  The wheel has been embossed with a verdigris finish.  There is plenty of room for photos and some great images from a Tim Coffey designer seaside paper mat from K and Company.

On the right side, the wheel supports the box that is hinged with the small squares turned to run along the bottom and aligned with the center square on the left side tray.  What a great way to display the shells and other bits of stuff you pick up on the beach!

Here is the brief description of the project and the items used from the store.  I definitely want to try making something similar sometime this summer.

If you can't find some of the items used, you can get all of the supplies for this project from Absolutely Everything's online store HERE.

Here is one more project that was on display for an upcoming class at the store.  Something like this would be great for any group of "beachy" summer photos.

It's hard to believe that we are already up to the traditional "first weekend of summer."   We are staying home this weekend - I hope to get some painting done in my craft space (I only got about two thirds of the way around the room last time!)  I hope you have a great weekend!
