Simple Stories: Cabin Fever Layouts

This year our family took a road trip through the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Being in the mountains is my favorite place to be! I love enjoying the fresh air along with the sights and sounds of nature. You can bet that I took a lot of photos on that trip that I couldn’t wait to scrapbook using the Simple Stories Cabin Fever collection.

The first thing I did was to pull out the Bits & Pieces pack. I sifted through all of the designs and selected several that went along with my photos. The red checked geo tag die cut was perfect for calling attention to the photos of this beautiful waterfall.

I die cut the title from the Summer Camp Paper (red buffalo check) using my Silhouette Cameo 3 Electronic Die Cutting machine and the “Adventure” cut file by Simple Stories found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #199552). I added a pinecone decorative brad to the left side of the title.

I then used more Bits & Pieces die cuts and stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to create two clusters around the bottom of my photos. The floral clusters and word phrases are repeated in both clusters to tie things together.

This next page features a few snapshots taken closer to home … in fact, they were taken in our backyard last fall as we enjoyed the fire pit one cool night.

I wanted a plain cardstock background, but decided to make it a little more interesting by die cutting stars all over it. I placed a second sheet of the same color of cardstock behind the die cut piece. The result is a subtle tone-on-tone texture that doesn’t take away too much attention from the photos.

At the top of the photos I added the heart sticker matted with white cardstock. I added the date and a decorative brad for a bit of dimension.

I used my scissors to cut the fire from the 4×6 Vertical Elements Paper. It was the perfect size to accent my title! I couldn’t resist adding the chipboard piece with the  marshmallows on a stick above it. Too cute!

At the bottom of the page I layered up a few chipboard pieces. Two wood slice circles overlap each other and anchor the rectangle chipboard piece. I love what it says! “Life is better by a campfire” So true!

I cut the journal block from the 4×6 Horizontal Elements paper and added it to the right of the photos. I used a black pen to handwrite my journaling and then accented the bottom with the Roughin’ It washi tape and a floral sticker.

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!
