Sail Away...Sail Away...Sail Away

Any Enya fans out there? I love Orinoco Flow! It has got to be one of the most relaxing songs every written. Of course, I love water and the ocean... growing up in New England has a way of doing that to you. So the thought of being out on the water and just escaping is so fabulous! I brought a bit of that feeling into my design for Paper Smooches this week using the new Sailboat dies!


This is a really awesome die set and, yes, the obvious use is for sailboats, but I can totally see other things coming from it later... you just wait! Mwaaahahaaahahaaaa! LOL!

Sailboat Hello

I combined the die with the amazingly fabulous Uncharted Waters collection by Glitz. I used papers from the 6x6 pad for the pieces and for the background. I used a knife to cut the waves just a bit and slipped the boat right into them to make it more realistic.  What I really love about these dies is the little outline parts that are incorporated... that's how I was able to add the great contrast on the flag and the sails.  I LOVE THAT!

Hello Sailboat (detail)

I am having SO.MUCH.FUN. with the new Paper Smooches dies this month!!! If you haven't checked them out, you totally need to head on over to the store and see them! They are AMAZING!!! And also be sure to check out what the PS Design Team is doing with them over on the Paper Smooches Blog!

As for me... I have an appointment to go to this morning and then a lunch date with my Mom! I also need to call my sister and sing Happy Birthday at the top of my lungs in my 'totally awesome' singing voice. (Please note the sarcasm of that last statement... Jingle makes things with paper... Jingle does not sing. Just sayin'.) And then... well, then I'm hoping to get some crafting in! Woot! Woot!

Have a Happy!!!

Jingle OUT!
