Seaside Shore Layout: Our Beach Boy

Hello, I have a scrapbook layout to share with you today. We (my hubby and I) enjoy going to the beach, we try for at least once a week. We walk almost the entire length of the beach, which is close to 10 km. We always bring our dog, Tucker with us. I try to snap some photos of him. 

When I first saw the {Seaside Shore} stamp set, I knew I could use some of my pics of Tucker. He was very happy to be perched upon my husband Mike's lap. 


Other than my craft room the beach is my happy place, and it always keeps me calm and in the present moment. Which is great since I tend to think too far ahead. It must be relaxing and calming for our pooch Tucker because he is so well behaved when we are there - which is so unlike him. Seriously, he rarely behaves! He just walks along the shore as I walk in the water not a peep at all.  

Well enough about that, onto the project details... I used the new {Seaside Shore} stamp set, which I fell in love with at first sight. It went straight to the top of my wishlist. I also used the coordinating {By the Shore Designer Series Paper}. I love this paper sooooooooooooo much. The patterns and colours are perfect!

I made the sandy background with the {Gorgeous Grunge} stamp set. I used several neutral tone colours - Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe and Smoky Slate. Some were directly stamped and some stamped off once. It gives a nice variance of colours just like real sand.  

I stamped the sentiment "BEACH BOY" using the {Layered Letters Alphabet}. I made it a two-toned look so it would somewhat match the striped designer series paper. I inked up the letters with Soft Sky and added some Dapper Denim on the top and bottom of the stamps, it gives a neat-o effect. Just remember to ink the lightest colour first so you don't get dark ink on your lighter ink pads. 

I love the variance of blue tones on this particular piece of paper, but I wanted to add a bit more colour, so I added a stamped banner sentiment and some colourful fish swimming about.

I'm going to mount this page into a frame to add to my gallery wall with the other layout pages I've made of my pooch. I hope you like it, have an awesome day!  

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!

Stampin' Up! Supplies Used:


  1. Hey Beckie! Cute scrapbook pages! What kind of dog is Tucker? He looks exactly like my dog, who we rescued from an animal shelter, so we don't know what kind of dog he is. Thanks!

  2. Hi Jessica, Thanks so much! Tucker is a Multi-Poo, he is half Toy Poodle and half Maltese. I'm so happy your pooch found a furr-ever home. We rescue stray cats/kittens, so that makes me so happy that you rescued your doggy. All the best!! :)

  3. Thanks, Beckie! Tucker looks like a younger, better-groomed version of my dog. Ha!
