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


Welcome, Mateys! I’m so glad you’ve sailed on over to my blog today for our blog hop! If you came here from Nicole’s blog, you are in the right place.  If you just stumbled upon this post (maybe you’ve had too much ale?) and would like to start from the beginning, please visit the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons blog.

I hope you’ve enjoyed all the fabulous pirate themed projects the rest of the DT has created! I can tell you I had a ton of fun creating the layout I want to share with you! I had the perfect event that I had yet to scrap (there are advantages to having lots of stories still to be scrapped.)


I found a wonderful PageMaps sketch (linked at the bottom of my post) and filled all the areas with photos and die cuts! I used print and cut quite a bit, but also added some detail with the Silhouette printable foil in gold and silver to add some shine to the lock, sword blades and the hook.


I loved the title from the Ahoy Matey Title Cutting Files. I did print and cut for the background layer and cut the red and black from paper and layered them all together. The subtitle is printed on Speech Bubbles Cutting Files (I used the color match tool to get the same yellow as on the ship) and the little pirate boy is from the Little Pirates Cutting Files, which has all the other pirate themed cuts I’ve used on my page.



For the treasure chest, I printed the treasure layer, the rest are cut from cardstock and distressed. I thought a few sequins would make a nice shiny, addition.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my page as much as I had creating it! Now onto some blog hop business!
