Welcome to the August blog hop with the All Stars Team!
You’ve landed in New Zealand with Jacque Williams and I am glad to have you here! It’s a cold, wintry night tonight – the perfect weather for crafting away!
My share this month features the Come Sail Away Suite and I’ve chosen to create a double page layout with more masculine possibilities:
This is my eldest daughter and her friend. I wanted to make the page a little more general . . as who knows how these relationships will ultimately turn out!
The first page has the main photos and features a little journalling pocket. I paired the Sweet Silhouette Dies with the Come Sail Away Bundle here. I just love the words in the Sweet Silhouette die set and the “adventure” with a pop of Real Red was just perfect. These two love to create adventures together!
The pocket has strips of leftover Designer Series Paper (don’t we all end up with a bunch of strips?!) and a little stamping with the All Wired Up background stamp, too.
I chose words from the Silhouette Scenes stamp, which fit quite nicely with the adventure theme of this layout. They were just perfectly with the dies from the Sailing Home bundle here.
The second page is less detailed, but pulls over all the same coordinating elements to tie the two pages together. Eventually, I used the lined paper on the far right to do more hand written journalling.
I felt these colours needed that splash of red, which also worked in with the photographs. This red anchor is just so cute – I can see this for a little girl, even, or a baby card.
