Nautical Scenes Die Set

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? I can't believe how busy August is this year. We had a lovely time away in Lille for my husband's birthday. On Sunday we hosted the first of his two tea parties at his parents house. That went very well. This Sunday we are having a private tea party at our local tea rooms. In amongst all of this I am getting ready to have some cards to sell at one of the Hampshire Open Studios events which starts on Saturday. There is a lot more to it than I first realised.

I have been wanting to have a play with the Nautical Scenes die set that came free with Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine a few months ago. Yesterday I got my chance.

I found an off cut from a larger card that would make a nice tent fold card. I found some card to make the mats and layers in my scrap pile. 

Then using all sorts of snippets I used the dies in the set to cut the layers to make the scene. 

The little boat is so cute. I do have a lot of nautical dies and being smaller these will make a nice addition to my collection. 

Now I have had a play with these dies I want to have another go to try out some other ideas. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of the week,

Happy Crafting
