Gypsy Life – I Love Camping

I adore the whimsical patterned papers of the Travel Buddies collection. There are just so many possibilities for scrapbook pages. We love camping and I was immediately drawn to the Travel Buddies ‘Gypsy Life’ paper.

I decided to scrap some photos that were taken during our camping in Plettenberg Bay in December last year. I cut an 8 x 12-inch strip from this paper. I added a narrow strip of Travel Buddies ‘Cable Car’ and then chose to mat my large photo on an older Basically Textured ‘Macho Camo’ Chocolate Chilly paper. I also punched a border strip from the Chocolate Chilly paper to add next to the Cable Car paper.

I then die cut two circles from the Gypsy Life paper (clouds side) and stitched around the circles. I adhered the strips to white card stock and added stitching along the edge of the Gypsy Life paper. I matted my smaller photo with the Cable Car (aqua and pink blocks on the B side). I then fussy cut the banner from the Cable Car manufacturers strip and added it to the tops of my photos. I used a vacation stamp set and stamped a few sentiments on a pink scrap of paper and a scrap from the Travel Buddies ‘Fly’ paper. I fussy cut the stamped elements and added them to my page.

The Holy Chip! – Lost Chipboard title was coloured with Distress Ink (Gathered Twigs), the Caravan (also from the Holy Chip! – Lost Chipboard) was coloured with Distress Ink (Barn Door). I completed the look by fussy cutting four little birds from the cut apart sheet and adding them to the embellishment clusters. The last touches were added with the journaling and a few enamel dots.

It’s easy to spot a Lynette Jacobs layout; her style is clean, bright and extremely emotive. I’ve been following her work for some time now, and have always marvelled at the subtle detail and form that she brings to her projects. But, the second I met her, I knew I wanted to work with her… Read more here »
