Scrapbooking Ideas for Telling Stories about Camping

Ideas for Scrapbook Pages About Camping | Get It Scrapped

 

Camping is a popular summer vacation activity for some of us and we’ve got scrapbooking ideas for telling those stories on the page.

Heather Awsumb says, “This page documents a camping trip I made with friends and our dogs in 2014 to Sani Pass where we hiked to the highest point south of Mt. Kilimanjaro and drove down the pass.”

“To tell my story I used a bold patterned paper with a camping motif as my background across the two page spread. I also used pictures from the trip that documented everyone on the trip, the scenery and details of where we stayed.”

Gretchen Henninger says, “We went camping often when I was a child. While we have many wonderful memories, we have very few photos, but here is one.  Because of the poor quality of the photo, I kept it small and drew focus to it by surrounding it with embellishments. I used woodgrain and florals to emphasis the outdoor theme.  I planned for space on the canvas for journaling that captures some of my favorite memories from our favorite camp site.”

Summer Christiansen says, “This layout is a page from a mini album about a backpacking and camping trip my husband and I made.  I decided before hand to do an album on the topic and documented the weeks of planning it took and then every detail of the trip.  This is the story of what happened at the trail head, before the four-mile hike up the mountain to camp.  I didn’t use any product to drive the feel and composition of the page.  I simply used a map screenshot of the terrain we hiked as my background paper and photos to highlight both the scenery and the actual place we were in.”

Marie-Pierre Capistran says, “This page will be the opening page of my Honeymoon album. We went camping for 4 weeks in the National Parks of the USA.”

“The important part of my storytelling is the journaling. Since this page is just the introduction to a whole album on the subject, I created a small resumé of the trip, stating that I thought that four weeks was a very long time for a camping trip. I’m not a fan of camping!”

“I used a single photo to represent the whole trip and printed it in a large format to make a stunning first impression. When I went on my trip (2001) I had a APS camera that was taking 3 strange photo formats: one was a panorama, one was not as wide but wider than our normal 4″ x 6″, and the third one was almost a 4″x 6″. The photo I took for this page was the 2nd type of format and I played with the fact that the photo is very wide. On the left side I printed a big map to show all our stops.”

“It’s very visual and easier to follow through the story once you have a picture of the route in your mind. As for the title, I focused on the fact that the trip was very long! I used two fonts to accentuate the camping part and the length part of the title. For the colors I stuck with natural cream and gold, to emphasize the beauty of the picture and the light that falls on the rocks.”

Amy Kingsford says, “This page is about the camping trip my husband and I took to celebrate finding out we were pregnant with our first child. We made dutch oven dinners for the first time; we talked about baby names; and we even met a couple that was camping with their one-month old baby. Unfortunately they had to leave a couple hours after they set up because the baby was very fussy. I think this opened our eyes a little bit to the changes that were coming, but we didn’t let it ruin our celebration!”

“This pastel camping-themed kit by Gennifer Bursett was perfect for my camping story’s softer subject. I used a pie-slice-style template replacing one of the slices with a tent embellishment. The remaining ‘slices’ hold photos and fun patterns.”

Debbie Hodge says, “This page highlights the idea that the only vacations I knew as a child were camping trips, while my own children have never gone camping. I’ve had this photo of my brother and myself in front of our pop-up camper for a while and have wanted to scrapbook it. I do have other stories I want to tell (of how we shared the camper and the equipement with my uncle’s family and of incidents and stories I remember and of the site itself) so I’ll probably have to use this photo again. Here the story is told with a layered foundation and a busy cluster of themed embellishments along the left of the photo.”
