Oh. My. Goodness. Have you seen the Stampin’ Up Pick a Pattern papers? I love the handdrawn feel of all of the patterns and couldn’t wait to play with them on this scrapbook page today.
This includes some older photos that I skipped past the first time I documented this trip. I can’t believe how much my daughters and her cousins have grown. I just HAD to include this photo in our books!
The first thing I did was create my title using the Happy Celebrations Stamps (Happy) and Hand Lettered Alphabet Stamps (Campers). I layered together two different pink markers to make sure I got the exact shade of pink I was looking for! The “campers” word was stamped using Emerald Envy Stampin’ Up ink.
I cut out the polaroid photos and cameras from one of the Pick a Pattern papers to use as page accents. I then clustered a couple of stamped phrases (Text Ya Later Stamp Set) and some hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes around them.
I used an older background stamp (Writing Notes 139864) to create my journaling block. I added more handcut cameras, metallic enamel hearts, and anchored everything on that adorable yellow/black striped paper.
I wanted the camping paper to POP a bit more, so I used the Ticket Tear Border to add punched borders across the top and bottom of the paper block.
I used a black journaling pen to outline all of the paper layers so that they matched the look of the doodled patterns.
I then added more stamped phrases to the camera cluster at the bottom. The “So Glad We Are Friends” is from the You’re Delightful Stamp Set, and the “You’re the Best” phrase is from the Text Ya Later Stamp Set.
I used the AWESOME Classic Label Punch to create all the labels for the phrases on this page. To dovetail the ends (instead of leaving them pointed), simply flip the punched piece around and notch the ends with the punch again!
