Whether you’re camping, cruising, or sitting around the pool this summer, the Pack Your Bags cartridge has all kinds of images to help you record your summer memories!
Hi Cricut Fans! Jana Eubank here. My family loves to go camping in the mountains each summer. I giggle at ourselves everytime we set up our camp because the first thing that gets pulled out, along with the kids’ camp chairs and nature exploring kits, is the satellite dish … my husband loves to have his news. I had to record this funny, family memory and chose the adorable car and trailer images from the Pack Your Bags cartridge to accent my page.
I cut the images out using several patterned papers and cardstocks. I chose to use vellum for the windows for a slight hint of transparency. I created the “road” for my vehicle with a length of burlap ribbon . . . perfect texture for a camping page.
My title was created using letter stickers anchored on an oval bookplate image from the Fabulous Finds cartridge. I added metal eyelets and tied a bit of twine on each end to match the natural burlap texture at the bottom of the page. The background of the bookplate image was stamped with a woodgrain stamp to give it more of a natural feeling, as well.
Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Summer!
