Our Regatta Palette

Our Regatta Palette has a great paper pack with a focus on the red, white and blue. The bright colours feature a nautical theme and would be great for the boys in our life, holidays and beach or just for the bright cards and album pages. 

The compliments and assortments match really well. ...the hard work is done for you! It also features a Workshop your Way pack to make album pages or cards and an additional stamp set exclusive and suitable for your favorite colour palette...

The Regatta products are available from the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea book and finishes in 3 weeks, end of April and focused this month with Close To My Heart.

The 'My Anchor' stamp set has a matching 'thincuts' to cut the shapes. Thin cuts are dies that can be used on your favourite die cutting machine and the matching stamp sets match perfectly for details.

 A Shaker Card

I took one of my favourite products...Flipflaps... and used them to make a shaker card. Cut a 3x3 hole in the top paper layer. Place a few sequins or glitter in the flip flap and seal it. Place it behind the top layer and secure in place with the adhesive strip and some glue dots and decorate. Using the 'My Anchor' thincuts cut the boat, lighthouse, sun and wave strips. Stamp using Cranberry, Canary, Glacier Sapphire and Whisper inks. Add the cloud image from C1570 Lifting Spirits to complete the picture. Any little boy would love this card....maybe a great ones for the grand kid boys!
