Step by Step:

1. Cut a few masks from some white card of wave shapes that will t across the inside of a 11'' x 8.5'' Hot pocket. Lay them inside an open pocket.

2. Add some alcohol ink in sea colors, pressing down on the masks to stop too much ink leaking underneath the waves, ll the whole pocket and leave aside open to dry. While you have the inks out ll another hot pocket with lots of sea colors creating a pattern of ink again leave this aside open to dry.

3. Turn on the laminator and while it is heating up start building the base for the layout. Using the freestyle mouse and the deckle edge blade #2804 cut a sand bank from the yellow swiss dot bazzill card. It's so much fun to cut decorative freestyle edges with this fabulous little mouse! 4. Spray the piece of blue bazzill 12 x12 cardstock with some blue smooch mist to create interest then adhere the 'sand bank' to it using the helmar 450 glue and then using the wave blade #2803 in the rotary side of the 2 in 1 combo trimmer, trim all the way around the 12 x 12 creating a wave edge to your layout, you only need to trim a mere fraction away from the sides and this is easily done on the rotary trimmer as the cardstock is held rmly in place and you can get the thinnest precision cut with the trimmer. 5. Remove the wave masks from the hot pocket and sprinkle both the pockets you have lled with ink with some silver/blue glitter then laminate them both. Remember to turn o the laminator when you're done!

6. From the piece of lamination that doesn't have waves cut some seaweed and sh shapes. The lamination in the Hot pockets is so strong that the pieces will hold together even when they are cut out, you can always put the lamination through a die cutter if you don't want to cut the shapes freehand!

7. Make a little pile of sequins, micro beads and some of the seaweed and sh shapes (keeping some back for outside decoration) in the centre of your 12 x 12. Apply a thin line of Helmar 450 glue around the edge of the wave patterned lamination and adhere it in place covering the little pile of loose goodies. The glue dries very quickly so you won't have to wait long to have a little shake of your creation :)

8. Trim 3 small photos 2''x2'' on the guillotine side of the 2 in 1 combo trimmer and add a length of hessian, lace and bobble ribbon to build up your layout.

9. Use some of the laminated seaweed and sh to add extra dimension to the page, adhering them with helmar scrap dots and nally add some journalling with a blue journal pen to the top right corner. 10. And that's it a fun, interactive sea themed memory page made unique to you with the Purple Cows Hot Laminator. Put it on display and watch peoples delight as they see the inside of the sea move! Enjoy! Love M x
