Regatta Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from Wendy then you are in the right place, or you may have come here as the start of the hop.

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a creation that features Close To My Heart’s Regatta Paper Packet, a nautical themed collection that is also very versatile.

I used this paper packet to scrapbook a game of mini golf- not nautical or beachy but in need of some neutral colours mixed with masculine shades.

I cut a word art border from my Cricut on the ombre paper sheet, and painstakingly attached it to another piece of the Regatta paper! I added a zip strip along the side to anchor it to the page.

I added some Regatta Complement flair as well as a pennant cut from the paper and this golf ball. I simply cut a small circle and ran it through the Confetti Dots embossing folder, then glued it to the layout so that the embossing was face down.

The banner from the Woodland Romance stamp set was stamped onto the Regatta paper with Pomegranate ink, then fussy cut.

This paper packet is only available until the end of April, so if you love it be sure to get in touch with your CTMH consultant!

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Creating with Kara Davies.

I am also entering this layout in the current Color Dare challenge!

  7. Great scrapbook page...I just did a golf card and what a great idea to use the circle embossing folder backward to appear like a golf ball...great idea. Also have to use that Word Art again, fantastic border. Have a whole family of golfers so will be making more cards...thanks for sharing and joining us at ColorMyHeart Color Dare this week, and please stop by next week for another great color combination.
