Camping Themed Layouts

What a wonderful Back to School Blog Hop this past weekend! I had so much fun making my creations for that hop and sharing them with all our Snapdragon Snippet fans. You are wonderful!!!

Now it is time to move on and show you what I've been up to when I wasn't creating from the Back to School Blog Hop. We went camping in Nebraska in July and we had such a great time. I took lots and lots and lots of pictures and now comes the time to scrap them. Thanks to all the wonderful Snapdragon Snippet camping/summer/bbq cutting files, I was able to put together this double page layout to keep some of my captured memories for years to come.

I used... 
3 trees - Design ID #45226
compass - Design ID #45227

And here is the second page to my layout

 I used...

hot dog - Design ID # 19156
hamburger - Design ID #19154 
flashlight - Design ID #45224
fire pit & roasting sticks - Design ID # 45222

I also had to show this adorable out house. I didn't use it on the above layouts but I loved it so much I had to cut it out and plan on using it on another layout I'm working on.

outhouse - Design ID #45225

Back to School Hop

Welcome to the SnapDragon Snippets/SVG Attic Back To School blog hop! We are super excited to have you join us! At each stop of the hop, you will be inspired by the creativity of each of Snapdragon Snippets and SVGAttic design team members. 

If you happened across this post out of order, please head to the SVG Attic blog to start at the beginning of the hop. 

Here are my projects for the hop: 

I upcycled a Princles Potato chips can and turned it into a "teacher survival kit." Pop off the top and the can is full of different types of chocolates that the teacher can use to get her through the year or maybe just the first day.

a2 crayon card Design ID #31607 I used  for the crayons around the bottom of the can. I ungrouped the crayons to use.

The apple on top of my can came from the september dozen squares quilt block Design ID #42748 

I also decided I needed a box full of yummies for the other teacher so I made the new cupcake box apple cutout Design ID #64475    I added acetate to the inside of the box to cover the apple window and then filled the box full of chocolate.

I used the teacher appreciation box card  Design ID #60420 to make a vintage looking box card. I didn't add the THANK YOU to it because the school year is just getting under way. I wanted to show how you can use this card at the beginning of the school year, during teacher appreciation week or even at the end of the school year.

Smore Fun

Summer is coming to a close but that only means it's time for camp fires and smores one last time. I have put together an 8 x 8 layout to help record those memories for years to come.

I used marshmallows Design ID #18793  for the marshmallows on sticks on the sides of this layout and I used s'mores phrases Design ID #18791 for the "smore fun" phrase. 

The s'mores phrases has two cute phrases in the cutting file. The one I used on my project and the other phrase is just the connected work Smores.

I have to share a little secret before I leave. I want to show you a close up of the marshmallows I made.

I thought they looked pretty real on my layout and I wanted to share how I made them. I first cut out the file and then used some brown distress ink on them to give them that burnt look and finally I put white flocking on them. The pictures doesn't do them justice but take it from me, they look pretty real.

Happy camping and crafting!
