Here is my little camper, loaded up for his first overnighter without dad.
For this page, I took a couple of sheets of scouting paper and used Old Olive and Certainly Celery cardstock to mat photos. I also used the marker to journal on the tent.

Color combos

There are colors that I would never think to put together. That is why I rely on my Color Coach so much. But, I noticed that my Dusty Durango, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo looks just like the color combos from Cirque de Soleil's Kooza.
I will need to take more time and look for more color combos that are out there for inspiration.

Melon Mambo cards

When it comes to papercrafting, I am not really a "Pink" person.
Scrapping mostly boys, scouting, and camping trips, there isn't much call for pink. But if I did play with pink, I think I'd play with Melon Mambo.
This color seems so fun!

I used the Movers and Shapers to punch out the heart. I stamped with Circle Circus and used a marker to shade a flower from the Pretties Kit.
The Eyelet Punch makes a frilly border and I colored white Grosgrain ribbon with a Melon Marker to create a new accessory.

Where does the time go?

Whoa! Its been a month! What happened?
I remember starting to prep for my class, scrambling to be ready, the kids showing up... Somewhere I lost a bunch of time. But I have been making some projects along the way, I just forget to publish them. So...

Let's start with some Circle Circus cards.

I love the new In Colors (like I always do) The picture doesn't do the Bermuda Bay justice. I double stamped the background with Circle stamps. In double stamping, you ink the stamp and stamp it multiple times. Each time, the image becomes lighter. I like double stamping for a background since it gives it more interest than if all the images were stamped in full ink. The eyelet punch was used to make a border and the Polka dot ribbon added an accent. A pearl from the Pretties finishes it off in the medallion center.

The Razzleberry card is very similar. The ribbon is different since I used White grosgrain. It doesn't look white because I used a marker to turn the ribbon into Razzleberry ribbon. Gotta love those markers!
