Camp | Simple Stories | Trail Mix

Monday 24 July 2023


Hi everyone! Here is another layout I have made for Simple Stories using the Trail Mix collection. For this layout I decided to make a camping ‘scene’ on my layout and to actually make a tent!

I started off by sketching out my idea onto some scrap paper and then when I was feeling confident, I lightly drew the basic shape of the tent onto a piece of patterned paper. After a few attempts and when I was finally happy with it, I cut it out and distressed the edges. I created another layer around the canopy with some leftover yellow paper from my previous Trail Mix layout. I distressed the edges of this too, and I added some machine stitching around the edges of both. I then layered them together and added them to a white card background.

I then decided to add the two large triangles cut away from the top of the tent – I turned these over and immediately loved the green background with the butterflies and moths. I hadn’t planned on adding a background to the tent, I figured I’d just leave it white, but the triangles worked perfectly and I’m so pleased I thought of this!

I used one of the Trail Mix Chipboard frames for one of my photos, and I mounted the other on a yellow journaling card. I positioned these on the left side of my layout and added the title ‘camp’ from the Foam Stickers on the right side of the layout.

I then added a number of smaller details: the ‘camp’ hanging sign at the top of the tent, a couple of tree Cardstock Stickers, ‘camp’ flag, tent, camera, log, camping lamp. I love all these cute little details that all work so well together to create a scene! My photos are actually of my children inside a blanket fort, rather than actually outside in a tent, but hey, I think it works!!

I added some Decorative Brads to the clusters, handwrote my journaling and finished off with some splatters of white paint. I absolute love how this one turned out, it is so cute!

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
