Camping Layouts

Camping is a wonderful summer family activity! The fresh air, starry nights, campfires, and s'mores conjure up fond memories of when I was little. As a parent, though, this is something that my family has not done regularly. I have no photos of us camping as a family! For this assignment, Cheri Thieleke was kind enough to share photos of her family.

When it was time to begin my layout, it became apparent that I had no camping collections in my supplies! I went to the Scrap Girl Boutique and found several "ready-made" camping collections, such as:

I wanted to look further than the camping category in the Boutique to see what else was available for a camping-themed layout. Collections in the Scrap Girl Boutique that have a masculine or grungy edge are perfect for camping layouts. The earth tones and natural elements really lend themselves to camping themes. These types of collections can also be used for many other themes, which definitely helps to stretch your scrapping dollars:

Although our family doesn't do a lot of camping, we do like to hike. Continuing my search through the Boutique turned up a number of collections that lend themselves to nature and hiking. Any of these could be easily incorporated into camping layouts. These collections are rich with elements like pebbles, grasses, trees, and even moss!

Since there are three girls living at our house, there is a tendency to lean towards feminine collections. Various elements of feminine collections indeed are perfect for camping layouts! Don't let the flowers and bows fool you! Try taking elements like vines, leaves, branches, strings, or neutral papers from some of the feminine collections to embellish your more rugged layouts:

As you can see, there are many creative choices waiting for you in the Scrap Girls Boutique for camping layout supplies. But don't be limited by the titles or the categories where the collections are found. There are collections specifically for camping, collections for nature, and collections for men and boys. Even feminine digital scrapbooking supplies can be used in your grungy or rugged themes. All can be incorporated into your camping layouts! There are no rules for what collections to use on your layouts, so let the sky be the limit on your creativity!

Tips from the Pros

Family Picnics

Note: Tutorial created using Adobe Photoshop CS4 with Windows 7

I love to be outdoors in the sunshine and enjoy nature. One of our favorite family activities is going for a picnic. We often pack up our rucksack and go for a little adventure, exploring the local woodland and hunting out the perfect picnic spot. Family picnics also make a great layout opportunity for your scrapbooks.

Why not create a layout describing your favorite place to picnic? How did you get there? We often follow a nature trail up to the top of the hills overlooking Shorne Country Park. Why not journal the way you get to your favorite family picnic spot? What makes this picnic place special for you?

Other ideas for family picnic layouts include:

  • What's in your basket? Why not photograph your packed picnic basket and explain what's in it.

  • What's your favorite food to take on a picnic?

  • Do you have any family traditions regarding your picnic? Do you go to the same place each year? Is it based around a special occasion? Do you regularly meet friends for a picnic? Document this tradition.

  • Do you have any funny family picnic stories? No picnic is complete without an ant invasion or a cheeky critter pinching one of the sandwiches. Tell your stories! They create wonderful memories and will be fun to read for years to come.

Whenever we decide to go on a family picnic, my twins, Archie and Harley, always like to help make the fruit kebabs. They love fruit and have great fun pushing the ingredients on to the kebab sticks. At the picnic, they always devour them with relish and pride in having made them themselves. I decided to create a layout documenting this family picnic tradition.

July Message Board Game: Summer Scavenger Hunt!

Dust off those thinking caps and hunting boots! We're having a Summer Scavenger Hunt, and you're invited! Join us for the July Message Board Game, where each Monday through Saturday during the month of July, a member of the Welcoming Committee will post a clue in the official game thread. The clue will describe a product from the Scrap Girls Boutique. To participate, search the Boutique for the product and post a link to the product page in the official game thread.

But wait, there's more! In a new twist to the scavenger hunt game, on certain days you will be sent to the Scrap Girls Gallery to look for layouts using specific products or collections, and then post a link to your layout comment in the official game thread.

Three winners will be drawn from all the members who correctly identify a product or find Gallery layouts throughout the month. Each winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Good luck in your search!

For complete details, visit the Monthly Message Board Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
