My Anchor In A Stormy Sea with Michaels’ Hot Buy – Nautical


The Layout

The Details  

Red, Navy and Blue have become favorite color choices for my boy layouts this summer.  So many companies got it so right this year.  I have loved Crate Paper’s Ahoy There, Bo-Bunny’s Fourth of July offerings and so many others… I couldn’t pass this paper collection that is currently a Hot Buy at Michaels.  I am unable to discern an actual “brand” on the packaging, but I suspect it is from DCWV.  

DSCN2719The quality of this stack is incredible!  It is an actual “thick” cardstock and it also has a nice weave-like texture.  It is also double sided.  I saw  the hearts and anchors and I was sold (they were only $7.00 this week; of course my employee discount made it even more of a steal.  I really like how this layout turned out.  It was super simple and super quick too!

I added a few wood veneer pieces from my stash…  I am almost out of the anchor’s and Hobby Lobby is no longer carrying them… I did find that ACOT is still selling them, so all hope is not lost.
