In an attempt to fill my personal me time joy meter up with a completely selfish act, I am hoping to get more scrapbooking in this year. To start things off here is a project I worked on yesterday. This is from a camping trip back in '05
Here are two (almost) identical layouts. Once again sorry about the photography. On top of not being that good it was late at night when I took these. I got inspiration from my Pinterest scrapbooking board. As always I am using up my ever growing stash, so I will reference the things I know.
The flashlight, fire fly jar, dutch oven, fire, and roasting sticks stickers are from Stickerpotamus. They are the Great Outdoor set. I have no idea if these are even still around or how long ago I bought them, but they are still adorable. The square were cut out with Creative Memories square punch ( except the large 2" was cut with my Fiskars straight cutter)
The Happy Camper Log title sticker is from Me and My Big Ideas Camping Kid Stickers. I love this set too and also could not tell you when I bought them.
The button brads are from The Paper Studio Spare Parts line. Love them!!
This next picture shows a close up of the papers I cut in varying widths (1, 3/4 and 1/2 inches) and lengths (2 1/8 inches and under) to add more texture and dimension to the layout. I also used Colorbox cat eye ink in Chestnut to in around the edges of some of the papers embellishments. The star stickers also come from the Stickerpotamus set.
Finally I made two cards (I only have a picture of the one and will post the other later, maybe) with the left over scraps. It is simple, but that isn't always bad. The Stamp used was from Stampin' Up, not sure what set. This was another great inheritance of my SIL's cleaning out and simplifying. I the "rope" was left over from??? It was originally white and I rubbed in Colorbox ink in Chestnut Roan. I also stamped the sentiment with this color.
