Seashells By The Seaside

Paper Wishes is located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and is a short drive from the Oregon coast. Collecting seashells is a part of growing up here and it’s the inspiration behind our nautical themed Seaside Collection.

This beachy card features Seaside Papers and Ribbons, Build A Banner TemplateSeashells Dazzles™ stickers and a stained glass technique using Stickles™ Glitter Glues, Acetate and the Texture Shells Cutting Die.

To make your own stained glass, glue the brown cardstock Texture Shells Die-Cut on Acetate and cut out.

Turn the shells die-cut over and squeeze Jade, Sea Spray and Sunflower Stickles™ onto the Acetate covering the back.

Before the glitter glue dries, smooth it out using your fingertips so that the glitter dries flat.

Once dry, turn the die-cut over and glue to the bottom edge of the card. You can also use this stained glass technique using Seashells Dazzles™ stickers.


The Texture Shells Cutting Die is very versatile and can be used to create very different looks. For this metallic gold and blue card I used Gold Ripple Holographic Paper, Seaside Paper Pack, Party Time Sequin Tin, Gold Glitter Happy Birthday Greetings Dazzles™ stickers and Gold Velvet Glitter Ribbon.

To make the seashell border I die cut 2 Texture Shells from Gold Ripple Holographic paper and trimmed one end of one die-cut so that is would nest next to the other die-cut a little more closely. Don’t forget to add sequins! I found that a little glue stick is enough to hold them firmly to the card.

These amazing scrapbook pages, created by Debbie, are just filled with nautical themed must-have items! Seaside Paper Pack, Seaside Ribbon Set, Seashells Cutting Dies, Mermaid Dazzles™ stickers and Seashells Dazzles™ stickers. Debbie added gold elements with Hammered Gold paper and our new fabulous Words Foiled Fancies™!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you feel inspired to make something wonderful! Happy crafting!

    I fell in love with the Seaside Collection the second I saw it in the catalog and am patiently, sorta, waiting for it to arrive.
    I have lived my whole life in San Diego, CA and the beach has been a part of of my life for as long as I can remember. My mom save all year long to rent a little beach cottage for 2 weeks every summer to spend time with my sister and I. She passed a few years ago and I inherited all the photos and there are some from our Summer’s at the beach house that the Seaside collection is perfect for. I can’t wait to get those memories out of the box and onto pages into a memory book.

    Paper Wishes continually gives us beautiful papers and accessories that none can compare to. You are killing my budget!!!

    I live about 3 hours from the Jersey shore. My sister and brother bought a home there about 4 years ago, so I get to the beach often. Now I just have to scrap the pages to go with the memories.
