Happy Campers!

Greetings all!

This is Michele from Scrap-n-Dance.blogspot.com. :)

I have a two page layout today, that I designed as a kit for some friends of mine. It's summer time, and some of us like to CAMP!  The simple patterns of Simple Stories' "Take a Hike" line of papers were an excellent background for the pages. And of course I found plenty of Cricut images to cut! I used my Gypsy to design the layout so all the images of sized on my gypsy, but you can always cut them at the nearest 1/4 inch!

"Happy Campers" is from Outdoor Man, and cut at 2.70 inches.
The sleeping bag is also from Outdoor Man and cut at 1.5 inches.
The camp fire is from Outdoor Man and cut at 2.5 inches.
The tent is from Camp Out and cut at 3.5 inches.

The squares across the top were hand cut from the sheet of paper that was all squares of camp and park signs. After cutting them I glued them to squares of brown cardstock to mat them. They fit perfectly across the top.

Thanks for stopping to visit and happy cricuting!

  1. Super cute! I really love the sign border. I bet this idea would be cute with the patch function from Camping Critters. I'm going to have to try it--thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Love the layout! Perfect for us so will be scraplifting this one. Helps that I just bought the Outdoor Man cart.

  3. I really love this, especially the squares across the top!

  4. Really like this layout!!! We don't do much camping at this point in our lives, but I think it would work for some old pictures that I have. I like how you used the border at the top as well!!

  5. Super LO! Great colors and I love the badges you used along the top!

  6. This is a fabulous layout! I really love the papers and your design. Fun!

  7. great layout - i'll have to look for this paper.


  8. Super, clean, crisp layout. Displays a masculine feel to me. The badges across the top are great embellies!

  9. I wanna go camping! Love your layout. The papers are perfect.

  10. This is a great layout -- love the design!!

  11. Really like this layout and may scraplift (if you don't mind) for a scrapbook I will be working on. Outdoor Man is on my to buy list for next week. I've been wanting Camp Out for sometime now but can only find it in digital and really would like the cartridge because I often scrapbook at a place without internet so wouldn't be able to use it if in digital format.

    TFS great layout.
