I got to work with the oh so awesome Happy Camper line. These papers, element and border stickers and die-cut sheets are fabulous to work with and the colors are perfect for camping or any fun outdoorsy activity. First off here's my layout:
These photos are of my husband and oldest 3 kids roasting marshmallows over the camp chef fire so they could have some tasty s'mores! Who says you need a camp fire??
Now I'd like to take you through my layout process. The uninterrupted version that is...
I used the front and back of Stick-y (that's such a cute name for this paper!). I just cut it about a 1/3 of the way up and flipped it over so you are able to see the fun marshmallows on the stick and the great brown w/ polka dots pattern from the back. Then I put a few pieces of tape along the back to help hold it together while I worked on the front. I pulled the wood frame from the die-cut sheet, added some metal brads right over the top of the screw marks and inked the edges with 2 colors of brown to give it a little more flare, cut my photo to fit the frame and attached it all with one layer of pop dots.
These border stickers are so fun and easy to use! Just pull and stick. I used one along the bottom edge, 2 along the top and half of 2 different ones for the middle, since my photos were going to cover the other half of the page. That way I still have the other 6 banner flags for another project. :)
To finish it off I added the 'this is the life' sticker to the frame and inked the edges of the layout. I hope you enjoyed hearing a little of my process and that it inspires you to 'make it yours'!
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)Ange
