Camping + Scrapbooking


I think I was due for one right?

These are all layouts I completed for the Treasured Memories Design Team. Main papers and embellishments are all Carta Bella.

Some fun insider notes about these layouts, and how I reconcile being on a Design Team with how I actually prefer to document my memories coming right up!

Also, please ignore my head shadow in these photos.I'm a goof and didn't notice...

First up, my gorgeous sister and her adorable boys. FAVOURITE PEOPLE ALERT!

I keep meaning to use my stamps more, so I pulled out my arrows (arrows are easy). Not totally impressed with the end product on this layout, but it will do! Lucas & I played SO MANY GAMES OF GUESS WHO on our recent camping trip. That is definitely a memory that needed to be documented. Love the little Instax camera sticker that came with this line!

I pulled out my super OLD Making Memories foam stamps, and boy am I ever glad I saved these! Forgot how much I love a big stamped title.

I was channeling my inner Candace/Lisa from 2007-2008 for this next layout. BIG Photo and a fun cluster of stuff at the top. This photo is just...

And last but not least, this is what all of the above layouts will end up looking like once I get them back from TM. My 2016 photo album is a 6x12, which is actually super convenient for me when I have to do some scrapbooking for the store! I do a 12x12 page - which is the most popular layout size, and therefore the best ones for display - and design the layout with my end goal in mind. So if you look really hard you can see the 6x12 layouts in my 12x12s.
This Carta Bella line was really fun to play with! Thanks Nadine!

I guess I could have split this up into a couple of posts, but whatevs! Enjoy friends! Would love to read what you think in the comments!


  1. Lovely, as always. I guess Sean deserves some credit for the camping birthday cake because he did buy it but only because he knew certain death awaited him if he didn't bring one.

  2. Ok! This is the third fucking time I've tried to leave a comment but google is telling me I have no profile and I am getting really ticked....

    ♥ I love these layouts! Thank you for making a compromise and working in 12x12.


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
