Camping Pocket Pages!

Well, September is here and we've headed back to school! It's all very exciting - Amie is in Grade 4 and loving it! I am still not quite ready to let the summer go yet though, so I've been working on scrapping some of those fun camping photos from my stash.

I used lots of adorable images from the May and June digital stamp releases from Pretty Cute Stamps, along with Simple Stories Summer Vibes papers and journaling cards and sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps - slipped them in some pocket pages and now they're ready to place in my album!

Whenever I get new digital stamp images I open them in a word processing program and make a printable sheet that I have all ready to print onto white cardstock as many times as I need. Whenever I have a few extra minutes I grab my alcohol based markers and colour them up and cut them out. Now they're ready to use directly on my photos or journaling cards, similar to a sticker! I added this cute beaver from the Beavers Digital Stamp set right on the Simple Stories card and added a fun sequin from the SpiegelMom Scraps Shop

I sponged on a bit of Distress Ink around the edges of my sentiments from the Summer Fun and Summer Memories sets before adding them to my pages, and below I layered on this adorable lantern from the Shine Bright Digital Stamp set and a few more sequins before hand writing my journaling. I hand cut some of the images from the Simple Stories collection to layer in my pocket elements as well.

For my second page I had some fun food and s'mores pics - and couldn't wait to use these adorable images from the S'mores and S'mores Sentiments Digital Stamp sets!

Of course, you have to have a campfire to roast your marshmallows, and this cute little fire from the Light My Fire set was just the right thing!

I actually printed my sentiments from Happy Camper Sentiments and S'mores Sentiments directly on the woodgrain journaling cards by printing them first on white paper and then taping them down in place over the area I had already printed on so I could line them up how I wanted them. These cute little hearts from the Beavers set added another sweet embellishment. I love how cute the S'mores look inside this coordinating Simple Stories frame!
