Ahoy there, Mateys! What little (or big!) boy wouldn’t love this 3D pirate ship sitting on their shelf?! This was a really fun project to create using the Carta Bella Paper Transatlantic Travel collection.
I die cut the ship using my Silhouette Electronic Die Cutting Machine and a cut file by Cre8ive Cutz. It looks daunting, but it was so easy to assemble. The papers of the Transatlantic Travel collection are what really make this project look special
Happy Creating to You, Me Hearties!
I love the Fundamentals Sticker sheets that come with each Bella Blvd collection. There are so many versatile shapes on each sheet, including phrase stickers, tab stickers, border stickers, all types of accent stickers: like hearts, circles, arrows, pluses, and more. There is even an alphabet! Everything you need to make a page look finished is included! You gotta love that!
JUST PLAIN FISHY
I gotta say, one of my very favorite things about the Fundamentals Stickers is the cute alphabet. I love the varying sizes of the letters. It makes your title on your project look so bouncy and fun! Here you can see that I spelled out my title on a circle of 6×8 paper that has been stitched around the edge with my sewing machine. I added a puffy fish sticker and then used the hearts from the Fundamental Sticker Sheet as the air bubbles for the fish!
I added a designer clip to the top right corner of my main photo and then added a phrase sticker, a large heart sticker, and two plus stickers as accents. You can also see the border sticker accenting the top of my page!
I clustered lots of the Fundamental Stickers in the other corner of my page to the left of the small photo. First, I placed added twine to the tag sticker and added it to the left of the photo. I then added the sailboat puffy sticker. The small cloud, “AWESOME” word sticker, and rectangle fish sticker ground everything and make it feel cohesive.
I added another border sticker to the bottom of the page and used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch across the top of it.
The journaling on this page would almost get lost in the shuffle of things if it wasn’t for that adorable octopus sticker grouped with a phrase and arrow sticker from the Fundamentals Sticker sheet. The arrow directs your eye to the story and helps provide movement on the page.
I had so much fun putting this page together and the Fundamental Stickers were just the things I needed to connect all the different areas of the page together. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi, Everyone! The Carta Bella Toy Box collection not only takes me back to the days when I was younger, but also when my kids were younger. I giggled when I saw the Magic Toy Room paper because it reminded me exactly how my son’s room looked when he was a little boy.
