Ariel & Eric Layout by Shimelle

Sunday, June 21, 2020

Hello crafty friends! It's Shimelle here and I'm thinking all things mermaid thanks to a new Seashell cut file from Paige paired with Bloom Street!
I started by cutting the Seashell from white cardstock then found my mermaid-inspired color scheme with two patterned papers from the 12x12 Paper Pad - one is a green chevron pattern and the other is a watercolor wash of purple and pink. The green and purple combination is perfect for some photos from breakfast with Ariel and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid. The green became my background and the pastel purple backed the cut shell - I only used one paper behind the shell so it was super quick and simple to back it.

With the shell in the middle of the page, I created a loose line of embellishments from the top left corner to the bottom right. The two photos - printed at 3x4 then backed with a narrow mat of white cardstock - sit together just to the right center of the page.
Along the line of embellishments from the top left to the bottom right, I tucked in bouquet die-cuts from the Floral Die Cuts, journaling spots and file tabs from the Ephemera Die CutsCardstock Stickers, the title made with mini alphas from the 4-Page Sticker Book, and Enamel Dots. I love the white glitter dots against the darker background - such a pretty, sparkly contrast! For finishing touches, I added a Puffy Word Sticker plus a few tiny puffy stickers from the Truly Grateful collection to bring in just a bit more purple and green. You can see this entire page come together in this video:

Thanks so much for heading under the sea with me today! Happy crafting!

  1. How exciting to meet them!! This is FABULOUS! Loving the shell!

  2. Right now my machine is still in box since February 2020. I would love to use it for paper but maybe for quilting fabric!!!! Don't know if that is possible.
