Beach Time Layout with Regatta Paper

If I had to label myself as a specific kind of paper crafter, I would have to say I am primarily a card maker.  I also lean towards home design projects and gifts.  Scrapbooking just wasn't something that I chose to concentrate on--that is until now.

Have you seen the fun little shaker cards?  I had never made one before, so I decided to give it a try. This is how my scrapbook layout started out.  I spent some time figuring out how to put the shaker card together and then I started playing with my 12 X 12 canvas.  I had so much fun--adding and taking away elements on the page.  Cards are fun to create but a full scrapbook layout is just a larger area to play with.  I am hooked and I see many more layouts in my future.

The paper pack I chose to use was perfect for my beach time layout.  It is the Regatta paper line from CTMH.  There is a definitely a maritime feel to the paper.  You have the red/white/blue combination which would be perfect for your 4th of July events and then there are the cool ocean tones perfect to capture your days at the beach.  Unfortunately, this paper line is close to retirement.  It is here for just until the end of April.  If you have summer beach vacation plans, be sure to grab some before it is gone.

You can find all of the paper and complements here:
