Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim here today with a fun camping inspired layout that I hope you’ll enjoy! I am blessed with a craft room and lots of supplies to choose from. That may sound amazing, but honestly at times I think it stalls my creativity, giving me too many choices. On this particular scrapbooking session, I narrowed down my focus and picked a few products to work with, which in turn forces the other stuff out of the wayThe products I choose to work with were, Echo Park’s Little Lumberjack collection, Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essentials and MultiCraft glitter.
I started by adhering 2 sheets of patterned paper together using Glue Dots Adhesive Sheets.

Using the die from Elizabeth Craft Designs Planner Essentials set, I cut out two pages for my layout. I didn’t stress over which directions the tabs would be. They could have been high or low on the layout, I even thought of cutting one off. The two pages adhered together is such a nice weight to work with!

As I started the process of putting my page together, I decided to add the pocket with tags. These were also cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs dies. I cut the top of my pocket down to adapt the size.

I had a pretty good idea where the photos would be placed and was eyeing all the possible embellishments. I did however challenge myself to add MultiCraft glitter. Glitter and camping really don’t go hand in hand, but camping and stars do and stars can glitter in a nighttime sky! Did you see how that evolved? Pretty cool!
I made a glitter glue to spread through a my Stampers Anonymous stencil using a gloss gel medium and glitter. I made sure to mix it thoroughly so it would spread evenly.

The end results were gorgeous and no amount of rubbing is lifting any of the glitter!

My little tags have a place to journal on the back, I’ll do that at a later date. They are held together with a brad with twine tied around for extra texture.

I was really pleased with how it all came together! I placed it into my Elizabeth Craft Designs planner. This is the first of many projects to go inside. I adhered two journal cards together [again with the double sided adhesive] and added the holes with the page die. I have to say, this size page was a dream to work with! A bit bigger than a traveler’s notebook and I was able to work on a flat page before tucking it in the planner, so many possibilities!
I hope this has inspired you to play. It was really fun to see it come together!
