A Little Scrapping Done

This past Wednesday, I hosted my monthly club and we were using The Open Sea set.  When I was talking to the ladies about how much I loved this set and had gotten it for scrapbooking, I was reminded that I still have not used it for that purpose.  I have had this set for over a year and have been going to town with cards but no pages.  So, I broke out an old Stampin' Success magazine (a great perk of being a demonstrator) and cased this great page featured on the cover with a few modifications.  As a family who loves going to the Cape in the summer, this is a fabulous set for scrapping our great summer picks.  Please note the DSP paper, letter dies and buttons used are retired, but you can easily swap them for something else and have a great page.

Here are the ingredients:
Stamps: The Open Sea
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, DSP Nautical Expeditions
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler Buttons, Kraft Buttons, Quilting Thread, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Square Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Alphabet Simple Letters Die

Freshly Made Sketches #42


I love this new stamp set, By the Seashore!  As someone who has grown up going to Cape Cod every summer, I look forward to the new beachy sets that Stampin' Up! comes out with.  I can't wait to use this set in some of my scrapbook pages this summer! 

Today's card uses a sketch from another sketch challenge I recently came across, Freshly Made Sketches.  They put out a new sketch every Wednesday.  I encourage you to check it out if you need a little inspiration.  The color scheme was inspired by a line of beachy clothing my boys have in their wardrobe.  After I picked out the colors, I realized the sketch this week uses similar colors!

Here are the details for recreating this card:
Stamps: By the Seashore, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Calypso Coral, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy
Paper: Calypso Coral, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Accessories: Tasteful Trim BigZ Die
