CTMH Regatta Sunshine Scrapbook Layout

So what I LOVE about this layout is how it took the same “triangles” from the Simply The Best layout, but by turning one of them, it’s a completely different look!

The Wonderful Sun Shine title is a combination of a Picture My Life card and the Whimsy Fundamental Stickers.  The cruise ship and waves are from the CTMH Incentive Trip exclusive stamp set, which we NOW have a customer version available but ONLY through March 31st, so order it NOW!!

This tag cluster is also  combination of Picture My Life card (the tag) and Whimsy Fundamental Stickers and the Beach Days stamp set.  The beach ball was stamped in Canary ink, the starfish was stamped in Whisper ink and the clamshell in Sorbet.

The Whisper Fundamental Stickers include a lot of little tags, arrows, sentiments and tabs that can be incorporated throughout your projects!

Only available through March 31st, have you ordered your Hello Paradise stamp set?!

Here are the paper sizes for this layout:

12" x 12" (2) White Daisy Cardstock
6" x 6" White Daisy Cardstock
3¼" x 3¼" (4) White Daisy Cardstock
6¼" x 6¼" Sorbet Fundamental
8" x 8" Sorbet Fundamental
12" x 12" Glacier Waves B&T

CTMH Regatta Destination Paradise Scrapbook Layout

Using Regatta Papers, cardstock and the Whimsy Fundamental Papers provides a vibrant combination of colors for this layout.

The stars are from a Regatta Picture My Life card (included in the paper pack).

Using the White Daisy Pigment ink for the waves allows it to pop on darker cardstock.  I heat set mine so I didn't have to wait for it to dry.  I layered the ink for the parrot by starting with Flaxen, then inking halfway with Lagoon and inking the final 1/3 of the parrot with Thistle ink (going light to dark). You can also use sponges to add different colors to a stamp.

Here are the paper sizes for this layout:

12" x 12" (2) Whisper Cardstock
1" x 12" (2) Crystal Blue Fundamental
2" x 1½" Thistle Fundamental
2" x 1" Thistle Fundamental
2" x 10½" Thistle Fundamental
2" x ½" Glacier Waves B&T
5" x ½" Glacier Waves B&T
6¼" x 4¼" Flaxen Sand Dollar B&T
6¼" x 6¼" Flaxen Sand Dollar B&T
2¼" x 2¼" (4) White Daisy Cardstock
6" x 4" White Daisy Cardstock
6" x 6" White Daisy Cardstock

The stamp set used in this layout are from the CTMH exclusive incentive trip stamp set, which is unfortunately unavailable for purchase.  However, we do have some other stamp sets that could be used in its place:
