Hello! Welcome back to my blog and to another awesome sampler class design. To make this page we used the Whale Done bundle, which has lots of fun images and fun ‘punny’ sentiments. The images are great for creating an underwater scene, and that’s exactly what we did for the shaker section. Shaker elements are a great technique and it added a fun spin to this layout.
There are a number of sheets in the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper pack that are great for making an under the sea seascape. We stamped the sea creatures from the Whale Done stamp set in different colours to fill in the seascape panel at the bottom of the page. To make the shaker portion, we used Whale of a Time Sequins and fussy cut small sea creatures from the Whale of a Time 6×6 Designer Series Paper. We then attached the window sheet using Foam Adhesive Strips, and a Calypso Coral frame on top with Tear n Tape.
A great tip to keep the small fussy cut pieces from becoming buried in the other shaker filler is to adhere a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional to the back and leave the backing in place.
To create the sentiment piece we stamped the sentiment close to the laft-hand side of a piece of Whisper White punched using the Everyday Label Punch. By sliding the opposite side back through the punch, we were able to make a custom sized sentiment piece.
Happy crafting x
