Rise and shine, CK campers!
On this first day of CK Summer Camp 2011, we’ve got some tips to help you scrapbook about your summer camping adventures as they’re happening.
A camping trip is a fun way to spend time with family and loved ones in the great outdoors. While on your campout, why not take advantage of some down time by scrapbooking as you go? It’s the perfect way to highlight your trip and it’s super easy to do. Just bring along a mini album of your choice along with some themed products like stickers, tags, small embellishments, and a pen for journaling.
Download these adorable coloring pages and let your children help create a mini album about your camp-out.
This on-the-go scrapbooking idea will work for a family vacation as well. Look for creative album options that suit your needs, like the coupon organizer from an office supply store that made it easy for Briana Johnson to scrapbook and collect memorabilia while on vacation.
Here’s how you can easily convert this type of organizer into an album:
1. Mist spray ink in two to three shades on front, back, and inside of accordion folds.
2. After ink is dry, decorate cover with title letters and accent stickers.
3. Slice individual accordion folds open to create flipable pages, leaving a few intact to hold memorabilia. Staple loose sides of folds together so they lie flat.
4. Stabilize album by applying masking tape to inside spine, which is the center of each new two-page spread.
Album Tip: Prepare a journal that you can take with you on your trip so you can record the highlights of each day while they’re fresh in your mind. It can be a simple notebook or an album prepped with destination titles and dates.
