Hi everyone, Eileen Hull here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog!
I hope you are keeping cool this week! Temps in Virginia were at 100 degrees and I headed to the ocean with a couple of crafty friends. We loaded the truck up with enough supplies to last a year, even though we were only spending one night. Sound familiar?
I had found a bag of shells in a dollar store and decided to create something with them. I have always been fascinated with how delicate they look and how strong they are! I used Clearsnap ColorBox Blends2 inks and Molten Dimensions embossing powders by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies to add color to the shells. They came out so pretty! I think it would be really cool to add these to a frame, shadowbox or even add to a tag or card if the shell was small enough. The perfect beach touch! Or how about adding a magnet on the back and hold papers or photos on the fridge?

I decided to make a video to share the process so here it is:

Please consider joining the (almost) members 4000 Eileen Hull Fan Club on Facebook- we share lots of inspiration, tips, ideas, and fellowship. There are giveaways and challenges too. I do Facebook Lives on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm Eastern and Thursdays at 4 pm and usually create a project- I hope you will join us! Thanks for crafting along with me and stay cool!

  1. I love these! Since I live in Florida I’m always doing something with shells! I’d use these in soooo many things! Wreaths, mixed media beach scapes, add them to my many baskets/plates of shells everywhere around the house even! I never thought of embossing them! Thank you for the beautiful idea! Looking forward to seeing more ideas!

    Love how you embossed the sea shells. I have a bag of shells . I plan to use your techniques on these shells.

    I don’t live in the US but in the Netherlands and it is as hot here as with you. I don’t know if these temperatures are normal for you in summer, certainly not for us.
    I love your idea, not difficult and stunning! Thank you so much for your inspirational video tutorial. Have a great week and (indeed) stay cool!
