Twine Twirling on a Camping Start with a Studio Finish

Yes, I totally scrapped while camping... and today, I have the last of this craziness to share with you! So far, I have shown you a fun experiment that ended in a layout as well as a layout that began around the campfire and ended in the studio. This is another layout of the latter. After futzing with some scissors and pen work, this is what I had to work with once home. Let's finish this, shall we?
That stenciling needs something twirly and fancy, you think?
Oooooh, how about some more of that?
And, some more?
Oh, yeppers! I love all of those little twirlies!
Now for some more pattern:
Fussy cut pattern, actually...
Hmmmmmm....
Oh, I like the other side better!
But, we still need a hint of that chevron, right?
Some of the scraps from that fussy cutting might be fun sprinkled about:
After a bit more of that chevron, here is where we are:
Title time!
This page is about the surprise of how thick the patio slab was during my parent's reno:


Ormolu? Yes, please!
Ahhh, a Basic Grey Transparency frame that has been hiding in my stash for WAY too long makes it onto this page - hooray!
I feel the need for a bit of sparkle:
And some fun word stamping:
After the splattering, pen lines and journaling...I shall call it done!
The last of my camping projects, completed with a twirl!
Now for some real fun - scrapping all the picts of our trip! We took SO many awesome photos during the 2 day trip...I am not sure the best way to scrap them. A bunch of layouts? A mini? I am leaning towards a mini, but then I am faced with the decisions of format and size. 8x8? 10x10? 5x8? Hmmmmm, so many possibilities....what do you think?

How do you scrap your little trips?

  1. Oh my, the amazing things you do with twine! Live all that this is! When it comes to minis, for me if it would take more than 2-3 layouts then it gets it's own book. The size depends on how many photos to me. Remember 20 page protectors fit in most albums. See how much real estate you need for those 40 pages of photos. Big pics or small pics? Single or multi photo? HTH

  3. Awesome layout, Ashli! Love the twine twirls. When we take a trip, I scrap my favorite photos/meaningful ones on a page of their own and then use a collage to create a page highlighting a bunch of the other stuff. :)

  4. AAA! LOVE!!! Those twine circles are SO AWESOOOOOME!!! Your design is PERFECT- fabulously inventive as always!!! I also love the stamping with that teeny tiny Dear Lizzy sentiment- I have it but I keep trying to make it fit into teeny tiny journaling spots- I love how you used it as a graphic design element here.

  6. Wonderful page! Love the twine circles. I rarely make minis, but just scrap trip pics like anything else. That way I don't end up with something unfinished that I need to complete! lol

  9. Love it! Twine circles look awesome. I think you should do a mini with the rest of your camping pics.

  10. You never cease to amaze me with the things you come up with to use products. Love how this turned out. The twine looks cool wrapped up like that. And I love the cut chevron strips. Awesome! I would lean towards doing a mini album with the other photos. My favorite mini size is 5x7. Plenty of room for 4x6 + embellishing + journaling on each page, but still small enough to easily store. :)

  15. Those twine twirls are amazing. I can't believe you scrapped while camping! I struggle to scrap anywhere except home and a crop... I think I need more tips on that! Go for the mini book :)

  16. Love this lo, just great! Oh, and I am a total mini book girl. I like to do 4x6 books and just trim a litte off the side and top (or bottom) of the picture.

  20. First, the twine circles are fantastic. I see a lollipop lift in the future.

    Second how I do weekend trips, I use C-Line Panoramic page protectors.
    On the outside pages I do 'normal' layouts to showcase the really good pics and on the insides I put the rest of the pictures. Here's a link if you don't know about them. http://www.c-lineproducts.com/qp694-c-line-memory-book-panoramic-12-x-12-page-protectors.html

  25. Really nice touch! I like the idea of a mini for your trip - the 5 x 8 sounds nice to give it a totally different feel. Working in a rectangular format might be a nice change too!

  29. Those twine swirls are fab. I always love watching you "build" your layouts. Even though I haven't been posting or leaving comments, I have been still following posts from my fave scrappers. You have had some great posts lately...I am sorry I just was not able to comment.
    Thanks for the kind comments on my recent post. I was worried that I may have lost most of my followers cuz I was gone so long!
    He is finally well enough that I can leave him on the middle floor of the house while I do a load of laundry, check email and check out my fave bloggers. So even though I have not had time to comment, I have sure enjoyed reading your posts.
