Echo Park Paper: Summer Camp Card & Big Foot Layout

One of my favorite things about summertime is the opportunity to enjoy the fresh mountain air while camping. Now, I’ll admit, I’m not a die-hard camper with tents and hiking boots, but I do enjoy nature from the comfort of my RV and that is pretty close, right? Haha!

The Summer Camp Mini Theme has the most adorable patterns! I couldn’t just choose one, so I included as many as I could on the background of this greeting card. I especially love the gingham check! It reminds me of the plastic tablecloths my mom always spread out on the picnic tables whenever we went on a summer picnic on the side of a canyon road.

I had fun layering several stickers together on top of one of the cut apart journaling cards. The little fishies and anchor are attached with a line of white twine … just waiting to be cooked over the campfire!

CAMP

While I had this cute collection out on my desk, I thought I would tackle a layout. I pulled out these pictures I had of my son at a scout camp a few years ago.

The design inspiration for this page comes from the fact that my son LOVES Big Foot … I mean … he is totally into the TV show and loves to watch the big foot sighting videos on YouTube. I have to admit … I’m pretty fascinated in watching them, too! (For fun, of course!)

I found the cut files (including the Big Foot dude) in the adorable “Don’t Feed the Bears” cut set at Lettering Delights.com It’s been awhile since I’ve created a little scene on my page with cut files, and I thought this would be the perfect one to do it on!

Here’s a little peek into how I planned out this page using in the Sure Cuts A Lot program before sending it to my Silhouette Cameo for cutting.

I drew a few rectangles to represent my photos and then plugged everything else in. I like to do this with scene pages like this because it helps me to size all of the images correctly.

I didn’t end up using the sun shape, simply because the orange felt overpowering at the top of the page. I needed to sprinkle in some more yellow (after adding the yellow journaling block at the bottom of the page), and so I decided to go with some punched stars instead.

Here’s a closer look at Mr. Big Foot. Isn’t he adorable with his big pinky orange feet?! I love the texture this cut file gives to his fur and do I dare say I love that he has a little chest and a belly button?! Bwaahaa! Too funny!

The mushrooms were the perfect little thing to tie everything together at the bottom of the page. I love them!
