Stamp and Create Product Spotlight - Pirates

I'm back with another card for Stamp and Create. This week product spotlight is pirates!

I  used Kraftin' Kimmie Billy Blyth. I also used the Fancy Pants Beach Bum Paper which is fantastic for anything sea related! The map was created using one of the neutral papers in the pack and then stamped with her own map stamp. Stamp and Create also carries Beach Babe, the girly version by Fancy Pants. The tan circle is twine that she wrapped around itself and then added an Anchor Charm. I also used May arts Champagne Netting.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

I have not been participating in any of my favourite challenges because I have been focusing on some other areas of my life. But I am keeping a crafting balance with doing some projects that have been put on the back burner. I have been meaning to create my own recipe book for all the family favourites. I've been missing my Sweet Sketch Wednesday friends. So I decided to use Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge # 105 for one of the section cover pages. I know it's a stretch, but it does use the sketch.

Here are two other pages

Thanks for visiting! I love reading your comments.
