Summer Outdoor Living

Looking for a fun adventure this summer? Or wondering what items your customers will be begging you to keep in stock? Think outdoor living! This summer, people are looking for ways to have fun but still stick within their budgets. Campgrounds and parks offer low fees, cutting out hotel costs for family vacations. Visitors are treated to great scenery and can often find a camping site nearby favorite tourist attractions.

Paper House's Camping and Outdoor Adventure Collections fit just about any camping or recreation trip, and our extensive line of U.S. Travel Destinations are the perfect accompaniment to family vacation scrapbooks!

The easy scrapbook layout shown above was made by layering our Outdoor Adventure Collage Paper (P-0372) and our Take A Hike Paper (P-0297) with a moss green cardstock and Pine Porch Paper. Simple photo mattes were made by inking the edges of cream cardstock and square of the leftover collage paper. The pictures were then secured using metallic eyelets on each corner.

We created a border across the middle of the page by gluing a section of Fallen Leaves Hand-Dyed Ribbon to a strip of brown cardstock. The trail marker and compass stickers from our Outdoor Adventure Cardstock Sticker made easy embellishments, and lifting them from the background using pop-dots created depth on the layout. Finally, the tree trunk border of the Cardstock Sticker eased the transition between the contrasting papers at the bottom, and the Outdoor Adventure Sign sticker provided a quick and easy title at the top!
