Step 1: Use Cranberry Solid Cardstock as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a piece of the sky blue bars designer paper to measure 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″. Adhere to the base.

Step 3: Tear two pieces of the ocean blue trellis paper that are 11-3/4″ wide, layer/adhere to the layout. Tear two pieces of the sand ripples paper that are 11-3/4″ wide, layer/adhere to the layout.

Step 4: Using the Border Maker System with the Rope Chain Border Maker Cartridge, punch a border from the tonal burlap paper. Cut a piece of ocean blue trellis designer paper to measure 11-3/4” x 3/4”.  Adhere to the top of the layout. Adhere the border to the back side of the ocean blue trellis paper strip. Adhere to the layout.

Step 5: Cut three photo mats that measure 4-1/2″ x 4″, 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4″ x 3-3/4″. Adhere to the layout, tucking into the torn pieces from Step 3.

Step 6: Cut a large mat in half. Tuck into the torn sand pieces. Journal as desired.

Step 7: To create the sailboat:

  • Cut a piece of designer paper to measure 2-1/2” x 4”, cutting from corner to corner to create triangles. Use one of the triangles.
  • Cut a piece of designer paper to measure 2” x 2-3/4”, cutting from corner to corner to create triangles. Use one of the triangles.
  • Cut an oval from paper using the second-smallest Custom Cutting System Oval Pattern, cutting on the outside with the Red Blade. Cut oval in half, creating the base of the sail boat.
  • Cut a piece of paper to measure 1” x 1-1/2”. Gently fold one end, angling scissors, cut to create the “flag”. 
  • Cut a piece of paper to measure 1/4” x 5” as the mast.
  • Adhere these pieces to the layout to create the sailboat.

Step 8: Adhere stickers and embellishments, using Foam Squares on some for added dimension.
