Voyage in the Sea- Graphic 45 & Stampendous Hop


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!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
