Hello! The Beneath the Sea hop with Graphic 45 is sadly coming to a close. I adore the Voyage Beneath the Sea papers that Graphic 45 so generously gave the team to use. For full hop details and prize info, please visit the Stampendous Blog. I have a layout to share with you today. My husband and I went on a cruise back in February, so I have lots of great photos that are just waiting to be scrapbooked. I decided to go with one of the photos that I took on the first day, when we were exploring the ship.
These papers are so perfect for the album I am making. Not just in the theme of the papers either. Many of my husband's "Hawaiian" shirts (which yes, he wears all year) pick up a lot of the colors in the papers. I used Mermaid Melody, Deep Blue Dreams, and Ocean Quest for this page.
Stampendous' new Cling Seashells set (and don't forget the coordinating dies!) were perfect embellishments for this page. I stamped them on cream cardstock, and I embossed them with Golden Sand embossing powder from the new Beach embossing powder kit. Using a small Stencil Brush, I added a bit of Antique Linen ink to add some depth to each of the shells.
The page really came together all on it's own because of the fantastic Graphic 45 papers and seashell images. But, I felt it needed a bit of info, so I added a small tag that says, "As we explored the ship on our first day, Gene was happy to find this scale model. Especially since the Allure of the Seas was built in Finland." My husband, being Finnish, was really excited. I hope to share more pages for my cruise album with you soon. And I will definitely be using more of Graphic 45's papers on many of them. Below is a list of all the folks sharing projects today. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
