Happy Friday and National Take a Hike Day! Fall is a great time to get outside, explore a new path, enjoy nature, and take in the pretty views. With that in mind, I have TWO new projects that are perfect for the day. I have my new Wild & Strong Scrapbook with its rustic, masculine vibe and my eight fabulous 12x12 Lake Life Layouts for vacation photos. Also, check out my colorful Lake Life Album that uses the same collection!
First up is my new mini album titled Wild and Strong. It's a different theme and I'm excited to share it. It's perfect for the rugged, outdoorsy men and boys (& women!) in our lives that love trucks, hunting, and nature.
It's designed with a 6.5" x 6.5" chipboard album and PhotoPlay's, Mud On The Tires Collection. It has deer, pine trees, trucks, antlers, fish, ducks, fishing poles, lures, plaid, camo prints, and earthy colors.
The album has 12 pages that include 3 fold-out pages, an awesome waterfall feature (see below), 6 flippies, 1 pocket, a kraft envelope, and space for 35 photos. That's a lot of interactive fun for 1 little album!
I do love a good waterfall element. They're great for adding lots of extra photo space to one page and it shows off all the different papers in a collection. In this case, it's all about nature inspired textures.
This mini would be perfect filled with photos of hunting, fishing, trucks, off-roading, country music, campfires, ax throwing, and a wonderful mountain getaway.
The pocket is a great spot for saving tickets to a monster truck show, a concert or country music festival, a National Park, an ATV adventure, or zip lining through the trees. You can also use it for extra photos or journaling cards.
This scrapbook makes a wonderful keepsake for outdoor memories or ... an amazing gift idea for the holidays! Think husband, dad, grandpa, son, friend, nephew, uncle, cousin, or co-worker!
Next up, is my Lake Life Layout Kit ...
These 12x12 pages were designed with the adorable Bella Blvd, Lake Life Collection. My 6x8 album, also titled Lake Life was so popular that I thought my 12x12 scrappers might enjoy some pages for their albums.
This kit has the supplies to make EIGHT lake themed scrapbook pages that include 2 flippies, lots of cute colors, space for 33 photos, and ... they're so much FUN to put together!!
They have cute images of cabins, canoes, trees, fish, frogs, boats, forest animals, and lots of sunshine.
These layouts would be perfect for photos of hiking, amazing views, a waterfall, streams, changing foliage, wildlife, and ... photos of your hiking partner.
What about an afternoon of fishing with friends or a fishing tournament?! Be sure to get photos of the boat, the weather, a favorite lure, and your prized catch of the day.
You can add pictures of your cabin, your campsite, a sunrise or sunset, the evening stars, catching fireflies, or sitting around a fire roasting marshmallows with family and friends.
you visit the lake often, I'm sure you have lots of fun memories on the
water. Do you have a boat, love tubing, riding jet skiis, or going swimming just off the sandbar?
No boat, no worries! Maybe your family loves hanging out in the backyard, playing games, swimming, or hunting for tadpoles. Speaking of tadpoles ... check out the cute frogs on the page above. Love them!
There are so many fun memories to be had when you're away from your phone, computer, or TV. I get it - sometimes it's hard to disconnect. But, when we do ... and we hear the birds singing, breathe in the fresh outdoor air, and connect with nature - I think we're all a little better for it.
I hope you'll find some time to get outside and create new memories with loved ones. Be sure to take photos and save them in my new Wild and Strong Mini Album or on my 12x12 Lake Life Page Kit. Happy scrappin!
