nautical theme scrapbook layout & cards

The nautical theme is a hot trend right now. It seams everywhere I turn there are nautical influences. I was at Home Sense this week and they had pillows, blankets, home decor pieces and a children's bedroom set. Many clothing stores have darling T's with nautical prints and patterns. 

You just know Stampin' Up! is always on with trends. Our current Occasions Catalogue has the cutest High Tide Suite! My May stamp clubs created these cards and scrapbook layouts with this suite ... 

You're my best mate card
Ahoy card

12x12 scrapbook page No.1

12z12 scrapbook layout No. 2
Take a look at the details ...

The boat sail was created with the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die.
To create the buoy - punch a 1 3/8" circle on Whisper White cardstock, then punch a 2 1/2" circle centered on the first hole. Wrap Calypso Coral Bakers Twine around to finish.
The mast is simply a skewer from the grocery store.
This banner was quickly created using the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die

This little whale was cut right from the High Tide Designer Series Paper.
The waves were cut with the Big Shot and the Adoring Accents Edgelits.
This product suite is only here for a few more days! Sad but true. When the Occasions Catalogue leaves us on June 1st, 2014, so will these fab products.

Even more ... the Adorning Accents Edgelits and the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die are leaving our Annual Catalogue on June 4th forever. Good news is that the Perfect Pennants die is now on sale for only $24.71! (while supplies last).

I hope you have been inspired to create with a nautical theme! Thank-you for reading!! Have a creative day!
