Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here with a new layout as part of Family Time week here on the Pink Paislee blog. The inspiration for my layout this week came from this cut file by Paige Evans that I downloaded from the Silhouette Design Store. As soon as I saw this Christmas camper cut file I knew exactly what I wanted to document. Recently we bought a camper trailer so that we can start going on little adventures as a family. I have not yet documented this, so I thought this story teamed with the cut file by Paige would be perfect.
Here is the process video of how this layout came together:I just adore the cute factor of this cut file and I also love the fact that it has so many negative spaces within the design allowing you to back the file with different papers to add detail and interest. I chose to back the cut file with a combination of papers from the Outfitters collection and the 6×6″ pad that came with it. I also used the manufacturer strips from the 12×12″ papers to back some areas within it. The tree was the perfect tie in to helping me choose a colour palette as this is a somewhat Christmas/holiday layout. Isn’t it cute!
The photos were taken the day we collected the camper trailer. The kids were so full of energy and their excitement was infectious. I printed the photos four to a 4×6″so I could arrange them in a strip on my page, replicating a photo booth style photo. We realised recently that our lives seem to be all work and no play, so family time it is. Having this van will encourage us to do so too. I used an ephemera tag to pop out the side of the photo strip to add another touch of the red to the page.
The embellishments from the Outfitters collection are like no other; the faux leather badges, the canvas banners, they are just the best and could not be more fitting for this story I am telling today on my layout.
Of course I had to add the story of my photos and the layout. I feel like my layout is missing something if I don’t add the story in somewhere. I have used my typewriter to add my journaling in strip form to the top right of the page.
I really loved rediscovering and playing with the Outfitters collection again. I look forward to documenting many more fun adventures now we have our camper trailer, with it.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today, be sure to check back tomorrow to see some more Family Time themed creations from the team.
