Come Sail Away

Do you need a quick and easy card but one that the recipient will love?  Memories & More Card Packs are the answer!  These card packs are amazing.  The one I used for this card is called Come Sail Away.  It has 50 double sided cards (2 each of 25 designs), These cards come in two sizes:  3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″.  Plus it includes laser cut designs and sticker sheets.  This pack of Memories & More cards coordinates with the Come Sail Away Suite which includes the Sailing Home Stamp Set, Smooth Sailing Dies, Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper, embellishments and ribbon.  Everything coordinates which makes it so easy to put together projects or cards.  Memories and More can be used for scrapbooking as well as card designs.  This pack of Memories & More are retiring on June 2nd so if you like it, you need to get it before then.

To make this card I put adhered a piece of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper onto a Night of Navy card base.  Then I attached one of the laser-cut cards that come in the Memories & More Card pack onto another piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  The sentiment is a sticker from this set.  The hardest part of making this card was decided which cards and DSP to use.  Simple as pie!

As a side note, I have written this post weeks ahead of time but if all goes well, today is our moving day!  I have spent the last few weeks (feels like months) packing and sorting, donating and selling our belongings.  It is a little sad but a little exciting.  Rob has lived in Sackets Harbor all his life and I moved here 42 years ago (which is most of my life).  We raised our three sons here, made great friends and truly enjoyed our life.  It is time for a change so we are jumping in with both feet and heading to Tennessee where there are grandchildren and warmer weather!  I have a few more blog posts scheduled but if you don’t hear from me for a while, it is only because I haven’t unpacked my stamping supplies.  Wish me luck!

Come Sail Away Fun Fold

Hello everyone!  Welcome to another Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me.  This time our challenge is to make a Fun Fold Card.  You all know by now that I love Fun Folds and I am always looking for new ones.  Luckily, I ran across one that was made by Julie Davison, a fellow demonstrator so I thought I would try it.  It is called a Peekaboo Flip Card and it isn’t very hard to make!

Here is the front of the card:

The fun part is when you pull the tab and this happens:

Isn’t that cute?

To make this fun fold card I used products from the Come Sail Away Suite in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019/2020 Annual Catalog.  It includes the stamp set called Sailing Home, matching dies called Smooth Sailing (and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle), Designer Series Paper, an embossing folder, embellishments and Baker’s twine.  Plus it has a pack of Memories & More cards which is what I used to make this card.

The two sailboats, anchor and sentiments are all from the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack.  All I needed to do was punched them out and adhere them to a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I had cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies..  The Designer Series Paper is also called Come Sail Away and has some beautiful patterns including the Balmy Blue and Whisper White striped one I used.  I punched the tab out using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch with Crumb Cake cardstock.  The card base is Night of Navy.

Now let’s go see what kind of Fun Fold card that Jackie and Buffy made.  I am sure you will love them!

Sailing Home

Last week was Rob’s and my 36th anniversary.  It is hard to believe it has been that long.  It is definitely true what they say about time flying.  Somehow during all that time we managed to raise together three handsome and brilliant sons who now have children of their own. We have had our ups and downs, as most people have but somehow we made it through it all.  I would not have wanted to do it with anyone else.

This is the card I made for Rob to celebrate our anniversary.  We have never really done presents or extravagant things to celebrate.  We have mostly celebrated this date quietly with just the two of us going out for dinner or something like that.  This year was no different.

To make this card I used the Come Sail Away Memories or More Card Pack from the 2019/2020 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog for the background.  I love these card packs because they have lots of fun designs that coordinate with other products in the catalog.  I stamped the sailboat and the anchor from the stamp set called Sailing Home in Basic Gray Ink and  then cut them out using the matching dies called Smooth Sailing.  I layered all of this on top of a Basic Black card base.

Happy Anniversary, Rob.  It is true that any day with you is the best!
