Creating Memories by the Seaside

Just in time for all of those sun-bleached memories you’re creating, our beloved Seaside collection is back now and through the end of August! With updated colors—including brand new French Vanilla—, a new 12″ x 12″ coordinating sticker sheet, and a new workshop, our timeless Seaside patterns have just the right amount of beachy bliss to capture the feeling of cool ocean breezes and all that this radiant season has to offer!

1.  My Acrylix® Seaside Greetings

This stunning stamp set, with its realistic line designs and versatile sentiments, is not just beautiful but also very easy to use in both scrapbooking and cardmaking. (We’ll show you how we’ve paired it together with the rest of the Seaside collection to make scrapbook pages and cards in the available workshop, below.)

2.  Seaside Paper Packet


Here it is! Featuring our exclusive colors, French Vanilla (new!!), Glacier, Lagoon, Raspberry, Smoothie, Sweet Leaf, and Toffee, this dreamy paper packet comes with 6 refreshed patterned paper sheets, 2 each of 3 double-sided designs, and 1 new coordinating sticker sheet! The zip strips are also new (and super cute)! Click on the individual thumbnail images to take a closer look!

(You can get a FREE Seaside paper packet by becoming a Close To My Heart Consultant or hosting a qualifying party in July!)

3.  Seaside Coordinating Cardstock


These cardstock colors coordinate perfectly with those in the Seaside paper packet. Each coordinating cardstock pack comes with 12 sheets, three each of French Vanilla, Lagoon, Smoothie, and Toffee; all 12″ x 12″.

4.  Seaside Workshop Kit

Paired with this downloadable workshop guide, the materials in this kit come together to create the gorgeous scrapbook layout, pages, and cards you see here:

  1. Seaside was one of my fave summer themed paper collections, just love the blue woodgrain. If I were to ask for a paper collection to come back I think it might be a toss up between Urban or Pemberley. Thanks for bringing back some rocking collections in the Bring Back my Pack specials.

    • I’m absolutely loving the Bring Back My Packs – so looking forward to seeing other versions of this. It would be great to see Lucy or Footloose packs. The full sticker sheet is a fabulous inclusion to provide further creativity. Thank you CTMH.

  2. I love the Seaside Collection because of the retro colors! Can wait to scrapbook with all the pretty papers!

  3. I love the combination of Lagoon and Smoothie. They work so well together and make the paper pack really versatile.

  4. I love the summery colors and I love anything beach. I had wished I had more of the paper when it was out and now I do. Thanks so much!

  5. Such a versatile paper pack and stamp! Loved using it the first time around and look forward to using it again ☺

  6. Seaside’s relaxing paper color combinations and wonderful stamp imagery evoke so many different memories – I can hear the ocean and smell the salt spray! I particularly enjoy using the stamps in different ways. The lighthouse is my favorite!

  7. I love this!
    It’s all in the name SEA SIDE,
    I have so many memories of living by the sea and photos that I can now scrapbook. The colors are perfect!
    I have to say that in my short time with CTMH this is my favorite pack!

  8. Love the colors and paper designs. The stamp set and papers can be used for beach trips, cruises and more “manly” cards.

  9. I really loved Seaside first time round and am excited to see the refreshed version. I’d love to see No Worries come back too.

  10. This is a beautiful collection!
    I love how you paired the stamps with the paper layouts… very ckassic!

  11. I love travelling, the anticipation of of going somewhere you have never been too is always exiting. Love this collection will match my recent holiday to Kangaroo Island(Australia)

  12. Seaside was the first paper pack I had the pleasure of working with for my very first double page. Just loved the papers ,complements,stamp set.
    Would love to receive a free pack to finish off my pages plus add to them fir a completed album .

  13. I really like the pastel tones in this paper pack. So beautiful. Thanks for bringing it back, as a newbie, I have missed so many awesome paper packs so it great that I can see what was offered in the past.

  14. This looks like an amazing collection to work with! I especially like the subtle shell pattern paper. The huge sticker sheet is a big plus!

  15. I still had a couple of part sheets of Seaside, but not enough to do much with it, so having more of this paper allows me to finish some photos from beautiful Port Macquarie, that have been pushed aside. Bring back La Vi En Rose, as it is lovely and the black and white very versatile.

  16. The original was one of my favorite paper packs. Glad to see the stamp set came back and I missed out on it.

  17. I absolutely love the scrapbook pages and cards you can make from this set. I love the gentle colors as well. I have been using Close to my Heart for about two years.

  18. I am landlocked and desperate for the sea breeze. Thank you for bringing it to me with this seaside stamp set and kit. I am thinking of combining it with one of Stacy’s Story Kits – maybe about the years I lived in Laguna Beach. Memories bring back the sent of salt in the air and it’s taste on tongue as I walk along the ocean and let the waves lap over my feet. Wow – I think I must have needed that meditative moment. I feel great

  19. I love Seaside because of all the different colors! I would love to see Fanfare or some other primary colored paper pack again !

  20. Loved the seaside paper for scrapbooking my family’s trip to Cancun. Love the colors!
    I would bring back No Worries. Loved that paper!

  21. I love the seaside collection because the beach is my favorite place to be! As I live in the Arizona desert, I don’t get to the ocean near enough. It is the place where I find peace. And, this is a beautiful collection!

  22. Loved the seaside paper for scrapbooking my family’s trip to Cancun. Love the colors!
    I would bring back No Worries. Loved that paper!

  23. I love it and ordered the full kit last week. I’m going to call se it with some of my early photos from my childhood. I feel this kit covers across the years, my1950’s to the present days
    Love it.

  25. I think the Bring Back My Pack concept is brilliant! I’ve loved having a second chance at favorite paper suites. I would be thrilled to see Chantilly again!

  26. I love the colors, seashells and the idea of the beach. It makes you think of a warm summer beach filled with lots of memories. You can almost hear the ocean, a breeze and feel the sunshine. What more could you ask for😊

  27. Thank you for bringing Seaside back!! I would love to see the Emporium collection as a Bring Back My Pack 😉
