For this blog hop, I decided to make a layout for my son's first camp out with his dad at the Morris Ranch with his Trail Life troop. They are my two woodland critters...

The left size:

The right side:

This was a fun day with camp fire stories, told by Mrs. Morris himself (the one with the cowboy hat), rosary, bows & arrows, and bb guns... An old boy experience.

I used and did:

DCWVStardust Stack Paper Pad

CTMH sticker elements and alphas. These dies, which I can't from where I got them...

DecoFoil glue pen and Fancy Foils transfer sheets.

Some Studio Calico wood pieces, I got from PWP

I wanted the foiled effect of the papers, thus, I added some foil to the CTMH stickers and alphas, and to the veneer pieces.

I also used some upcycled tags, from Cold Water Creek, and just stained them with Distress paint:

I cut the arrows, tepee, the sentiment and the swirly stars/sun out of foiled border paper, using my brand new Snap machine, from CraftWell: 

I love the effect of the negative cut on this border and might use it for a later project...

I glued added pictures using this sketch from

Here some details: 

I decided to add the tag as a hanging element and used a cloth safety pin to attach it to the page:

I added some journaling to the back of the tag:

I hope you enjoyed this scrapbooking page as much as I did.

Now hop to see dear Amanda"s blog-

For this Blog Hop, I decided to continue my Galveston album, long time in progress and almost done. I tried to do a very colorful and bright page and what better option than using foil...

Other pages: catch-wave-blog-hop, monthly-challenge-61CCC3 challenge and each year:
This is the back of this page:

The back of the album:

The front of the album:


Foil, Ranger

DecoFoil glue
3d zots 

Liquid Gloss, Ranger
Ikea specialty cardboard
 Bazzil paper
 mini-album by Heart of Texas
Tags, TH, Ranger
Glitter paste, BoBunny

 In short: I added a CTMH loop pin to one corner of the cardboard page and hung the TH tag and metallic button using some twine:

from the back:

I added some foil to one of the included cardboard shapes: 

One color:

then the other:

and added it to the metallic button:

I foiled the other shapes and attached the corrugated cardboard squares to the page. The added some glitter paste using the cap of the glue as stamp:

I was trying to mimic the bubbles pattern from the cardboard shape:

I cut some shells from the clickart page included in this kit and pasted them here and there:

I'm planning to add a picture to the shuffle and maybe one or two to the corrugated cardboard squares:

I stamped and foiled the sentiment, and stamped it again in top with ink to get a shadowed effect:

It's not perfect, but still readable and I like the effect of the foil:

I hope you enjoyed my page and continue this fun and colorful hop:
