All of the ocean related collections are beautiful and this one I would turn into an album/journal for memories off all my time on the water! Thank you for once again knocking it out of the park!!!

  35. What a charming collection! How utterly gorgeous!

    re “what will you be creating with this collection?” These papers and embellishments fit in perfectly with the scrapbooking on my to-do list! My husband and I crossed the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea in a 34′ sailboat, and we were out cruising for around 5 years all together. Most of the layouts I’m planning to make are ocean themed. The muted blue papers from the solids pack are EXACTLY the colors I need for my scrapbooks! But I’d also be likely to use any leftover scraps to make cards or planner layouts.

    Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway! Y’all are super generous.

  36. Ohhh my I am so excited about these papers I love purple & aqua together and since my daughter is a mermaid as she always sais when she doesn’t want to walk {that is so funny when she does that} These papers would so fit with her swimming lessons she is atending and also summervacation beach picture would go great with these papers……amzing new collection love it xox Amy

  37. Love the colors…have many family outings from the 1940’s to scrap and have been waiting for the right collection to enhance these photographs which have been in a box for years! Living on the coast, there are many photos, and the colors, die cuts and ephemera will lend themselves to some gorgeous pages…thank you for a beautiful collection…can’t wait to get started and pass this scrapbook to future generations.

  38. Oooh those uniquely beautiful colours! This one is simply amazing ! A really special project should be made of this one. I love decorating my home with ocean themed and magical themed objects so this one spells a magical mermaid home decor item!!

  39. These colors are truly a work-of-art. They blend, rock & roll like the ocean!
    Make A Splash is a gourmet paper worthy of many albums, cards and treats for the eye! Who can resist Mermaids & Pearls!!

  40. Oh this collection is a slash! I love the soft vintage colors and patterns. And those mermaids are mystically romantic. Just love this!
