Are you happiest with the water beneath you and a cold drink in your hand? Is your favourite sound in the world the crashing and splashing of waves? If so, you aren’t alone. Many people find their happy place on a boat or by the water, so it’s no wonder that the Maritime collection has become so popular! It comes with a wide variety of options for customisable borders that really bring the page to life, and blog contributor Krislyn will show you how to create beach scrapbook borders that make every page look like it came straight from the sea.
Time seems to move at a different pace on the beach. There’s something about the feeling of sand under your toes, blue skies overhead and water nearby that makes you forget about your stressors and problems for the day. Although many of us can’t spend every day on the beach, with the Maritime collection you can create a nautical-themed scrapbook layout that captures how peaceful it is to be near the water. Blog contributor Nicole recently created a beautiful Maritime scrapbook layout to showcase her family’s beach memories. Check it out!

Our family has a passion for visiting off-the-beaten-track locations in the Australian outback. We love to getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, get amongst nature and live the simple life. And, when we get home, I love to document our adventures in my Creative Memories Albums so the kids (and us too) will remember these special trips in years to come.
According to the dictionary:
Dreams—aspirations or goals for what is to come.
Believe—to have confidence or faith in the truth.
Laugh—to express pleasure with an audible expulsion.
Memories—the state or fact of being remembered.
FUN—enjoyment or playfulness.
I wish these two boys all of the above and more in their lifetime.
Who hasn’t scrapped their summer holiday photos yet? Or are you in the midst of planning your next trip? Why not start your holiday pages with pictures of the eager adventure-bound faces on the plane and stories and memorabilia of the travel plans?
Here I’ve paired the Gallivant collection with the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge to create some easy holiday borders.
Wherever your adventures take you, I hope you enjoy the journey!
