So I started writing this post way back in July! It was shortly after returning from the Incentive trip to Greece. But as you can see I never finished it and never posted it. Life happens. When we got back I was trying to spend as much time as I could with my son knowing that he would be leaving the country. So I let some things slide – like my blog. He left last week on Monday. He has been gone for 1 week now and I need to get my butt in gear and get back on track. So here we go…..
I have a scrapbook page and cards to share with you using the Come Sail Away Suite. I shared these on a Facebook Live video a while ago and you can see that here.
The left page of this two page layout was what my Stamp Club made for one of their projects back in July. And the right hand page was the one I added as part of my Facebook Live video. The bottom left corner is actually a card idea that I created for a swap and then decided that I wanted to base a scrapbook page on it.
Fun Fact: in case you didn’t know I grew up sailing. That was my sport from about 10 years old until I went to college. My dad and brother are sailors and my mom used to sail too. I grew up living in a sailing club on the lake. At that time there weren’t very many girls that were sailing. I always say that I grew up in a boys world and had to join Stampin’ Up! to find some girls to hang out with.

Since not everyone in my stamp club is a scrapbooker I also give them the option to create two cards instead of the one scrapbook page. I utilize the same supplies. Here are the two cards from this layout.
The card on the left was the one I made for my swap card and that is the one that inspired the scrapbook page. You should be able to see where the second card is taken from the scrapbook page too. And you could also use that bottom right corner on the second page to create a card layout. I hope you like these ideas.
