It's A Shore Thing

People drive for miles and miles and wait in line for up to two hours for one of Red's Eats famous Maine lobster rolls.  Earlier this year I created a scrapbook page in homage to Red's Eats.  This was before the DEEP OCEAN LOBSTER die No. 98986 appeared in the Memory Box catalog. I now need to revise this page and add some cute little lobsters!

Since I got my DEEP OCEAN LOBSTER die, I've been making a variety of cards.  You may remember that I created a shore dinner card when I first got the die and posted it to this blog.

I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the little lobster die--DEEP OCEAN LOBSTER No. 98986--and had some fun with word play and numerous lobster cut-outs in bright red paper to create some late summer cards.

In Maine we tend to pronounce LOBSTER as "lobstah", hence a revised title of the B52 song on this card.  I couldn't resist using the VIRTUOSO MUSIC die No. 98356 even though I couldn't find it in the online catalog.  You could easily substitute PARTY MUSIC die No. 98757 (which I now know I need to purchase!) or MUSICAL MOTIF die No. 98747.

  • White Notecard
  • Bluebird Distressed Dot paper

  • CURLING CLOUD die No. 98976

  • TYPEWRITER UPPERCASE ALPHABET die No. 98367

I love using dies in ways other than they were intended--the Curling Cloud upside down as a wave; the Bursting Berry Vine Border as underwater foliage.  I hope you are having a summer with opportunities to make your own creative cards using the Memory Box dies.

Happpy Crafting!
