Pages for the Great Outdoors

There is nothing in the world like being out in some
of the Beautiful places in nature on our planet and if
you get the chance to hike, camp, fish, wait for flowers,
 or do whatever you do when you are there
we have some great ideas for pages for you!!

"Great Outdoors" by Debbie Sherman (Wyoming)
Debbie had a great idea to use half of the mini die cut
for her journaling and a border on the side of the photo.

GC004, GC010, GC002, GC007 Spellbinders S5-040 Floral Doily dies
Prima - Say it in crystals and flowers, other flowers,
Petaloo and Recollections , journal circle - unknown

Recent years I have realized that outdoors is great for taking good pictures. 
The picture on this LO was taken when me and my family 
and another family went on a photo safari to one of the theme
playgrounds around Malmö (there are several here) this one is from the African Park.
 I used the fabulous Gone Camping Line - such soft and beautiful colors 
and combined with a few details of Glitter cardstock. 
To make the page more interesting 
I added some acrylic paint mixed with water.

Other MM acrylic pant , staples , QK alpha, Ranger Crackle accents

"You make me so Proud" by Jona Panessa
Jona wanted to make a special layout about her son with
our new Gone Camping line since baseball is not such
 a big deal in the Philippines.  She used the diecut a little off the side
  for the photo and layered lots of pieces from the new stickers. She used the
Tim Holtz flower die to create the matching flowers for her layout.

"April showers/please send flowers" by Tracey Taylor
Tracey lives in Canada where the weather can get to 35 degrees
 below zero so this page is so fitting to do as
spring slowly appears this year for her and her family.

Tracey added lots of intricate details like the acrylic snowflakes and
 buttons that have a design to the already embossed glittery flowers.
Adding details like this makes the page more interesting and less flat.

Supplies: GC004, GC013, GC014
Magistical Memories Chipboard flowers
My Little Shoebox Glitter Letter Stickers
American Crafts Thickers, Sizzix Snowflake Die
Misc. white buttons, DCWV Scalloped cardstock

"Hello Fall" by Karen Thind (Canada)
Karen had lots of creative juices flowing when she created this
page with her Spellbinders dies.  She used bands of the paper
to create a backround and then used all different patterns to cut
all the circles out.  The tiny word stickers went perfect
layered on top of them and some extra matching buttons
 and all she needed was a darling photo of her daughter
 and a cute title also made with a Spellbinders die.

supplies: Circles/scallop circles/bracket frames all cut using Spellbinders
cardstock: GC001, GC002, GC003, 004,005,006, 014

Beach Bums by Tracey Taylor (Canada)
Beach Bums Layout:
Gone Camping (GC010, GC012, GC013, GC014)

Great Outdoors by Kim Holmes (Washington State)

I enjoyed combining both patterned paper and stickers
 to add dimension to my layout – these fabulous papers
 make it so easy to do fussy cutting!
