By the Sea featuring Navigator with Rebecca

Good day, everyone! Rebecca here hosting today's blog post. The season of Spring brings thoughts of blooming flowers, robins and for some of the lucky ones... Spring Break! I used the Navigator Paper Pack to create the following double page layout.

"By the Sea"

This layout was inspired by all the strips of paper I had leftover from previous layouts I had created. I simply cut down the paper into strips that ranged from 4.5, 2.5, 1.5 and .5 inch strips.

I inked all the strips with Kokomo, Capri Blue and Sandy Shore.

I used one sheet of the colored world map paper on left side of the page and used the half sheet on the right side of the layout. I completed the right side of the page using the strips in various widths. I repeated layering strips on the left side of the page but went horizontal instead of vertical.

I stamped the flowers using Tropical Punch, the sea leaves with Cactus and the tree branches with Sandy Shore. I die cut the images and colored them with the same ink using a blending tool.

After matting and placing my photos, I began to layer my flowers, shells and sea leaves. I used a circle punch to punch out the circle phrases from the cardstock paper phrases.


I used a large die cut to mat the photo in the center of the page. I layers the flowers, sea leaves, and tree branches along the bottom of the photo. I had to strips left to use, so I cut a "v" out of the ends of them and placed them over the photo. I added some pearl flourishes as an added embellishment.

I repeated the flower layering on the right side of the page and added copper brads to the phrase I cut out of the cardstock phrases and popped it up with foam tape.

Although, I won't be "Spring Breaking" somewhere warm, this layout will remind me of the beautiful sea that is so blue. I hope you enjoyed today's blog post!
