Pinning & Paper strips

I now have two brand new obsessions
Wanna know why? 
 I'm so loving how this card turned out.
Got the inspiration from Pinterest (see the pin HERE)
and that fabulous flair from Paper Play Studio just brings it all together.
 The paper strips are wood-grain embossed kraft paper painted white then inked and sanded to give that weathered beachy wood feel!

And one more interpreted a little different 
 
 So what brought on all this paper strip play?

Fabulous projects! The woodgrain is so realistic and the second one looks like bandaids, stamped with love...

Very fun! Love the white washed look both on the boards and on the second card! I love both of the sentiments too!

Your strip play is absolutely, utterly amazing! I can't decide which I like better! Great beachy feel in the first and I love the graphic nature of the paint in the second.

I love BOTH!! The first one is so cool. It reminds me of the beach somehow! Must be the white panels...? The 2nd one with the tiny pieces of paper-weaving is simply adorable!! You have a COOL and FUN style, Lalo! Keep them coming :) Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
