It’s been a while since I’ve created a scrapbook page but I had this idea while I was doing some training at my new job. Have you ever gotten and idea from a project from somewhere kind of unusual? During the training they kept showing a picture and then drawing a line from the picture to create a rectangle. My mind immediately thought it would make a great card front or accent for a scrapbook page. As I mentioned the other day my family loves to be outdoors and I fell in love with the Campology stamp set wanting to use if for scrapbook pages. When I started creating this project I was drawn to the Greatest Journey Dies that I showcased early. I enjoyed combining the Enjoy the Journey Suite with the Campology Stamps to create this fun scrapbook layout. Now I just need to go camping so I can add some pictures.
I thought that I would give you a close up of some of the details on the page. Rather than cutting out the letters and placing them on the cardstock I actually did the reverse and lined them up and cut them out using the cutout as my header. I used some old washi tape to hold them in place so they didn’t move as I was cutting them out. The advantage to this technique was that I didn’t have to worry about attaching a bunch of small pieces to my project.
I really love how the accent pieces turned out. I think I may create more projects using this outline technique. It was simple to create using a ruler and our stampin’ write markers. I also used black to add shadow to some of the images as a way to incorporate the black accessories I wanted to use from the suite. I finished it off by using accents from the greatest journey suite including some of the awesome designer series paper which is where I pulled my color scheme from.

When I started this project I originally used the colors Shaded Spruce and Very Vanilla, but then I ended up deciding to use elements from the Enjoy the Journey Suite and the Designer Series Paper used slightly different colors. Rather than let my original focal image go to waste I turned it into a quick card adding in additional embellishments and words from the suite.
