Polka Dot Orchard: Pool Hair Days & Beach Party Flip Flop Cards

Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well! I took a week off from crafting to work on my house and craft room. We moved a little over a year ago and life got busy so I never finished unpacking and putting up pictures. I finally had enough! So I spent the week trying to make this house a home. I have to say that it's really starting to come together and finally feels like we are planting roots. We seem to move around about every 4-6 years, but I decided this time around I'm not waiting for the next move date! It's been a lot of hard work, but I'm excited about having a functioning craft room again. Here are pictures of my desk area!

With summer coming to an end and school starting back up, I decided I wanted to transport myself somewhere tropical! I love the beach and ocean so I created these flip flop cards using two digital sets from Polka Dot Orchard called POOL HAIR DAYS and BEACH PARTY.  This is the first one I showcased a couple of weeks ago on Facebook.
Yesterday, I created 6 more! For these 5, I used foiled paper from a paper pad I bought at Hobby Lobby called Be Bold Be Bright. I created multiple flip flops on a sheet of printer paper in word, and printed it out. I cut the patterned paper down to fit over the printed areas, taped them down with double-stick tape and ran the paper through the printer again so it printed the flip flops on the patterned paper. Then I printed the digis again on two sheets of Copic paper. I colored the black bottom of the flip flops on one sheet. On the second sheet I colored the flip flop straps so I could cut the straps out and adhere to the flip flops using foam tape. The straps got a coat of CTMH Liquid Glass to make them shiny. The last step was to glue on these gorgeous paper cherry blossoms from I Am Roses.

On this last card, I created a tropical beach scene on the flip flop using Beach Party.
