Hello! Becky here today sharing the first couple of pocket pages from our Yosemite Family Vacation back in August 2012! Yes – I am THAT behind!
For this project I am using an older collection but one that I have hung onto specifically for this project! The paper line is called Take a Hike and it’s actually a retired collection from Simple Stories.
The album I am using is the 9×12 Woodgrain album from Studio Calico. For my cover page I used a design 1B – 9×12 page protector and my Fuse to split the page up into small shaker pockets all the way around my title (and journaling, which is on the back) and then filed the pockets with sequins, resin shapes, wood veneer pieces and paper leaves. The cover page was so fun to make and came out exactly as I had pictured it in my mind (I love when that happens)! I also used the word “adventure” from the Color Cast Designs Wanderlust set which was part of the May release!
My second page is all about our first look at Yosemite while driving into the Valley for the first time ever!
I used a design 3B – 9×12 page protector for this page.
The Happy Trails Triangles are seriously so dang perfect for this project! I was ecstatic to see them in Jessica’s May release!
The word “outdoors” is another piece from the Wanderlust set – I love how you can layer the semi opaque acrylic over other elements without completely covering them up!
On this page I added another shaker box using my Fuse and on the backside I added the mountains triangle from the Happy Trails Triangles set.
The 2B -9×12 page protector may be my favorite design with 18 3×3 pockets!
I paired three more of the Happy Trails Triangles with the Happy Trails Expressions for this spread.
The Color Cast Designs wood veneer pair so well with the earthy colors in the camping themed papers. I am really happy with how this is all coming together so far!
We camped at the Wawona Campgrounds in Yosemite National Forest and the South Fork of the Merced River runs right along the campground which was absolutely perfect for the kids! We spent so much time playing and lounging in the river — the perfect camping vacation activity!
The “In the Summertime” wood veneer piece is from the Summer Love set. All of the summer lines really can be mixed and matched for all your summer activity scrapbooking!
The final page I am showing today is from our first hike around Meadow Loop in Wawona. I love adhering the Color Cast Design embellishments right onto my photos like I did here with the “get outside” sentiment from the Happy Trails Expressions set.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look today! Be sure to pick up all the summer sets from the Color Cast Designs shop and take 10% off your order with the code, “becky”!
