Going Places, a Remarkable Blog Hop

Going Places!  Today I'm sharing some Project Life pages I made documenting a recent trip.  We love the beach no matter the season and one of our favorites is Lewes/Rehoboth, DE!

I love the Project Life by Stampin' Up! collection.  The cards make it so easy to just journal and go while adding a touch of color.  AND I love that if you want to get a bit more creative, all our wonderful Stampin' Up! stuff coordinates beautifully.  I used the Let's Get Away set for this layout.

I have one more project to share.  With my love of the beach, I ordered the new From Land to Sea stamp set.  And I just kept seeing in my head these little turtles swimming.  And I thought what a fun twist on the Get Moving theme.  So I stamped them out and colored them using a blender pen.  So very cute!!

Then I saw the Freshly Made Sketches sketch and let it inspire the rest of the card.  Here's the sketch:

And here is my card!

I used the alphabet rotary stamp for the sentiment.  Keep swimming was the first thing that popped into my head as I was finishing up with the card.  I think this would be a great card to send to someone that could use a little encouragement.  Of course, you could use any other type of sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope that you enjoy the rest of the blog tour.


  1. Love your projects but especially the project life layouts! Makes me want to visit.

  2. Great projects! I like how you used larger photos and cut them to fit the Project Life sections.

    1. Thanks Nancy. I've seen the technique, but it was my first go at it.

  3. Fun card! Those turtles look great "swimming" across the card! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. I love the creative way you have used the sketch - with the images swimming on the edge! Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
