I LOVE camping!

 I grew up camping! I came from a large family and so many of my wonderful childhood memories are from the camping trips we took : )   Most of our camping was done in a large tent but after some of the children "left the nest" eventually my folks purchased a travel trailer.

I designed this "groovy" scrapbook page as a kit to be purchased through my friend Barb's store.  The kits I am making for her are really catching on!! Her customers buy the kit with everything needed to create this page cut to size and ready to assemble : )

I cut the camper about 5 different times using different colored pieces of card stock then just cut myself some layers : )  The rest of the components are either pieces of  coordinating papers or American Crafts ribbons from her store. I added "Antiquing" to most of the page elements using some rust colored ink applied with a sponge.

I added some old postage stamps from my stash.  The stamps are authentic, cancelled, postage stamps from around the 1960s and made for a sweet feature on the page.

I wont list the papers in the supply list for this page because it was literally created from discontinued papers.  As you can see you could duplicate the page easily by opening your own scrap bid and selecting papers. : )

I have been giving away a free card each month.  Please see THIS POST for details of how you could be selected to win in my March 17th drawing.

Thanks a bunch for stopping by! Have a great day.

Journaling lines as well as "Date" and "Good Times" sentiments are from the Close To My Heart Cricut "Artbooking" Bundle called Artbooking

If you are interested in making this page and have any questions please feel free to ask. : )

We used to camp a lot when we were young. ... some of my fondest memories took place out in the open air with family. Somehow kids these days prefer facebook and video games. We had it good. I just love how you just throw things together and make it look awesome... amazing job, Patti!
hugs, Asha
