Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!


Hello, there! Something is fishy around here today, in case you weren’t aware. The Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons design team is having a blog hop and you’re invited! You’ve been hopping/swimming along already? Great then you should have you come here from Nicole’s blog and you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog to get you on your way.

We are sharing our Under the Sea themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. For my project I was thrilled that Lisa had so many of the creatures we saw while at the Maui Ocean Center that we visited on vacation! Many of them were young, so these cute cut files were just perfect! That, and I found a sketch with circles so I could use the portholes (more on that below my DT post.)

Here’s what I created:








I used: Fishy Friends Cutting Files (hammerhead) , Sea Life Cutting Files (turtle and sea star), Jellyfish Cutting FilesPorthole Card Cutting Files (which has a whole lot of detail that I didn’t use, but instead just cut off the back and left the center open) and Sweet Seahorse Cutting Files. I can’t say enough how wonderful it was to have the option to do print and cut with these! With some of the features being so small or just the creature being small, it was awesome to have all the colors and layers ready to go with print and cut.

So you wanna keep hopping? First a few more details about the hop!
