Ahoy Mate with PhotoPlay Paper


Hello crafty friends, happy Monday to you! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! It was literally hot as blazes here in the heart of North Carolina over the past few days. No doubt that summer is in full swing. Perfect time to share this nautical card that I made for PhotoPlay Paper featuring their adorable Monterey Bay collection.


You all may have noticed this card on my blog header over the past few months, but I have actually been waiting for the warm weather to hit to share the full project (and that time is NOW). In fact I made this card for PhotoPlay back in January for Creativation, and it was probably my absolute favorite project that I got to make for the show. I mean come on!!! Look at that fantastic walrus in his little sailor suit! Could you not just die?


Layers of patterned papers mixed with border stickers, ephemera die cuts, and cardstock stickers from the kit. I do so love me a good nautical design. And growing up near the real Monterey Bay in California, this collection stirs up some nostalgia and childhood memories in the best possible way.

Did any of you grow up near the ocean? East coast or west coast? I have to say, having lived on both coasts, I’d be hard pressed to choose.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you a fantastic week ahead!
