Be A Happy Camper Book and Card

As much as I love Fridays, today is a teeny sad as it is my last day sharing on Obsessed With Scrapbooking. It's been such a fun week and I thank Joy so much for allowing me to occupy her crafty space this week! ♥
Every summer the cousins, my grands, do a family camping trip. Today's project utilizes the Campin Critters cartridge....LOVE that cart! I'm sharing this book I made for Mila, one of my adorable, talented and crafty grandgirls. ;) Mila, 8, is very artistically talented and loves to draw and write constantly. This 6" x 4.25" book holds all unruled pages so she can draw and write during the campout this summer.
  The intro page using a sentiment by My Creative Time, and super adorbs trailer stamp by Market Street Stramps.
I used My Creative Time stitched ticket die and label font stamp set to make a cute name tag. I didn't use kraft paper however. I used my all time fave homemade chipboard using a cracker box! Two cuts, back to back, then punched with the crop-o-dile. If you haven't tried this technique, go finish off the crackers and scrap the box. You'll love it!!!!
The trailer on this cartridge is so stinkin' adorable, I had to make it!! Is this not the cutest thing ever! Using coordinating pattern papers to the book label, I used it on the gift card that will accompany the book.  It even has REAL windows!! I used acetate for the windows and popped the trailer off the background with foam tape.
Super fun papers are Away We Go, My Minds Eye, 6x6 paper pad. I used cloud dies by My Creative Time and Quickutz. Fishtail tags and sentiments also by My Creative Time. Except the 'explore' one...that's a Market Street stamp.
The finished card. Hope you like!

  1. Love it! The card is adorable and I love the papers. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  2. Oh Shar ~ Look at what you did here! Okay that journal/ sketch book/ smashbook ( it can be all this) is SERIOUSLY awesome!!! Then you go and make this AMAZING card! I don't even camp and bought this cartridge for that camper cut! BRAVO sweet friend! AWESOME job all week! Sad its over too but best part ~ I still get to stalk your blog

  3. The card and book are both adorable! I'm sure Mila will really enjoy them. Thanks so much for sharing this week!

  4. The book is fun and that is a really good idea for the young camper

  5. Adorable! My grandparents use to travel in windstreams and I have great memories of them. TYFS

  6. What a great idea for a young person to have their own camping log. Helps them remember the good things that happen during the summer and maybe if the historical sites they saw. And she is a young artist so that is even better she can draw the critters and things she sees.,

  7. Adorable card! Terrific idea as well....great to get kids started on recording memories.
    Thanks so much for sharing!
