Welcome to our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop featuring this months featured pack called Workshops Your Way™ Regatta Scrapbooking KitThis soon to be retiring kit is really fun and these new designs of Workshops Your Way Kits are so useful.

We are all creating with the Workshops Your Way™ Regatta Scrapbooking Kit.
This kit is featured by Close to My Heart in April and is until the end of the current Seasonal Expressions 1 Ideas Book (so will be retiring at the end of April 2016). NOT LONG!!
I made the pages and the cards from the Workshops Your Way™ Regatta Scrapbooking Kit 
and had lots of fun doing it.

*Note: The only additions to this kit for me where the Value Pack 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack. I may also use some Picture My Life Memory Protectors™ to finish off my PML pages using the PML Printed Page on the Workshops Your Way Kit, that I may be making. 

Below is one of the layouts. The other layouts I did aren't pictured. This is on our trip to Bremer Bay, Wagin isn't near the coast but the pages matched with the colours and the sentiments so I did my Bremer Bay photos AND my on the way to Bremer Bay photos! 

With the cards for the Workshops Your Way™ Regatta Scrapbooking Kit that I could turn the paper around for a different look, I did it. Just by reversing the paper created such a different look on both sides. I really loved the My Anchor Thin Cuts and My Anchor stamp set, specifically the cute little boats and birds flying. I also really love the sayings on this stamp set. Very romantic and loving, or to share with someone that has been very supportive of you. 

I made the cards from the kit (two of the cards that are the same are not pictured above), and then afterwards, I made a variety of other cards using SCRAPS!! 
I made the above card just using scraps from the pages, plus one of the 4x3 picture my life cards and the zip strip title. To finish it off I put a strip of White Shimmer TrimSo easy to make this card from scraps. All put together about Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive 
and the title put on with 3-D Foam Tape.

 I used the My Anchor Thin Cuts and My Anchor Stamp set for the Glacier Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad waves, and Pomegranate Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad for the boat and Sapphire Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad for the flag on the Ship. The flags and the "you are sunshine for my soul" title were from zip strips on the edge of the pages.   

The above Happy Day card was made using a 3x4 picture my life card and a scrap of Glacier CardstockThe Happy was from the My Anchor Thin Cuts and My Anchor Stamp set stamped with Sapphire Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and the Day title was stamped with White Daisy Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (left carefully because Pigment ink takes longer to dry). I finished it with Red Shimmer Trim covered with White & Gold Ribbon from the Workshops Your Way™ Regatta Scrapbooking KitI stuck the ribbon onto the shimmer trim with Micro Glue Dots™3-D Foam Tape added dimension to the cards. 

The above card was made using more scraps, plus the same 'Happy' and Boat from the previous cards (stamped twice because I cut the thin cuts with two thicknesses of paper). Birthday title was created with the Handwritten PrintFinished the card off with Maritime Puffies

I still have lots of scraps left over, plus Maritime Puffiespicture my life cards and Regatta Complements from the lovely Workshops Your Way™ Regatta Scrapbooking KitMy plan is to use these all up so I can start on the new papers when the new ideas book/catalogue is released next month!

  1. Thank you. Loving Regatta and your crafty ideas!

  2. Great range of ideas here, I love how you have swapped the papers around on the same card design to get a different look.

    1. Thanks Lauren, flipping the paper over creates such a great look. It was my upline Louinna's original idea. Only one card couldn't be flipped over and that was because it was created with the zip strips.

  3. Wow great variety of ideas here, loving it all

  4. Fun cards and layout, you show the versatility the this collection well.

    1. You know me Doris, full of fun :) I also love the versatility

  5. Love how you have used the same design but swapped the colours

    1. Thanks Natalie, Such a simple way to create a totally different look. Flip overs!!
