Lots of folks love summer camping and kids love going to camp. I spent 3 summers of my career life as a summer camp director at a girl’s week long resident camp…it was hard work but yet super satisfying. I loved seeing the girls (most of them were city girls) being exposed to nature, hiking, and the outdoors.

Good Morning and Happy Thursday fellow crafters! Katie here from 2CrafyKaties to share with you a card using Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icons and Scrapping for Less Paper pack in collection #2 of this month’s FOTM kit!
Here is what I created:
First, I need to apologize.
Teresa and Kim have this AMAZING card kit and
they pack in a TON of goodies and I have been playing safe. I have not been using all the embellishment’s
in the kit. So, for my sneak I stepped
out of my comfort zone and used the Kaisercraft “Wood Camping” Icon pieces. I will admit that I scrap lifted the
idea/layout from Stacy (here). I also
used a die that did NOT come in the kit.
Hurry and grab this kit because it’s ADORABLE!
Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my sneak peek for the July Scrapping For Less Flavor of the month kit. Let me tell you, this kit is awesome and it was really hard to figure out what I wanted to play with for my sneak peek.
I decided to use portions from a couple of collections to put my project together, and wow did I have fun with it. This months kit is just amazing, and I really can’t wait to show you the other projects I had fun making this coming /Saturday morning at 1200am, July 17, 2019.
Hey there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with an adorable card using the sweetest little camper set called Happy Camper from Pink & Main. I paired this sweet set with the beautiful Galaxy Foil papers also from Pink & Main… these two products were literally made for each other!!
I’ve been wanting to make a long card… one that will fit in a #10 envelope. I love to change things up sometimes and this size of card is fun to play with! I started with a 8-1/2 x 11″ piece of kraft card stock. I trimmed it down to 8-1/2 x 8″ and then on the 8″ side, I scored it right in the middle at 4″… giving me a 8-1/2 x 4″ card base. A #10 envelope is actually larger, measuring at 4-1/8 x 9-1/2″ so you could actually make a larger card if you’d like. This was just the size I decided to go with.
I had my card base and I had picked out my Galaxy Foil paper… but then I realized my paper was only 6″ so how do I make a long card with this short patterned paper. Well, I found that Gina K.’s Plum Punch card stock coordinated with the Galaxy Foil paper and that helped to fill in the rest of my background. And to finish off my scene, I die cut some Gina K. Grass Green card stock using the Grassy Border die from Lawn Fawn. I then adhered my grass layers to the plum card stock being sure to not glue down the top layer of grass blades so I could tuck in my car and camper.
Speaking of… how adorable is this car and camper!! They were so much fun to color!! I love all the scallops and swirls… so fun!! There are so many cute images in this set too! I just love that little backpack… it reminded me of a denim backpack that I had as a kid so I colored it to look like it, except mine was green. 🙂 How cute is that sentiment ‘Happy trails!’… I thought this would be a cute card to send to someone going out on an adventure maybe camping or taking an RV around the country seeing all the sights!
Oh my goodness… these adorable bears!! I love their cute faces! I had a blast coloring them too. They look ready to enjoy some camping fun. And that crown on the glamping girl bear… love!!!
I finished off the card with some kraft twine… it filled in that empty space in that top right corner… and I think it fits with the whole camping/outdoors theme. I used a bunch of Copic markers to color in the images… here they are:
For this first card it gives every reason I love going camping. I really miss the days we would join the family out at the camp in the Florida Everglades and have fun all weekend without a care about what was back at home. Campfires that we kept running all day and night, swamp buggy and four wheeler rides out to the middle of the field to check out the stars.
My husband said this is his favorite card of the three. Canoeing is so much fun and I personally can’t wait until the water is high enough to be able to go to down the river on a 4 hour float.
I stamped the images onto the Bo Bunny patterned paper and then cut them out with my Brother Scan n Cut. You certainly could easily fussy cut these out as well.
I used a cloud stencil and Distress Oxide ink onto Bristol card stock to make the sky. The rest of the card was very easy to assemble. I just layered up pattern paper for the blue “lake” layer and green “ground” layer. The trees are glued down flat but the tents are popped up on foam adhesive.
I used a warm gray copic marker to give a tiny bit of shadow and dimension to the tents. I stamped the sentiment and called it good.
It makes me think of the cabin on the lake we rent for a week in mid-July up in northern Minnesota. This photo is from the front yard of our cabin. Isn’t that just paradise?
For us Minnesotans, relaxing at the lake is our idea of heaven! What is your favorite way to relax on vacation?
