Sail Away With Me and Top Dog Dies

Hi everyone, it's Audrey! Today I have a pair of fun notecards and matching envelopes I put together with the adorable Anchored collection and dies from our product partner this week, Top Dog Dies.


The old-timey Polaroid style frames are very hot trends in the market right now. I love how well they work for just about any papercrafting project. Of course the frames are perfect for photos, but they are also great for accenting journaling cards or embellishments, or framing focal images on cards, like I’ve done here.

I really like that the Top Dog Dies Photo Mats die comes with three different sized frames. For my projects, I used the middle sized photo mats to frame festive seaside images on my pair of very playful cards.

The bottom of the photo mats frame are wide enough to dress up with all sorts of fun trims and embellishments, so I made good use of the space by adding twine, buttons, and border stickers from the Details sticker sheet. I was even able to add a fun boat image on one that I fussy cut from the Enhancements Cut Apart paper.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy!
