August Challenge: The Great Outdoors

School has already started back up for my kiddos, which means I have a little more time to scrap our summer adventures. The camping trips, beach trips, hikes and days spent at the lake were the highlights of my summer. I just love getting outdoors. Inspired by the Woodland collection by Pretty Little Studio and the Outfitters collection by Pink Paislee included in the August kit, Snapshot, our next challenge is to create a layout about the great outdoors. I asked creative team member Allie to start us off with some inspiration:

_MG_7761Allie had this to say about creating her page: “For this layout I used pictures of the ocean as my interpretation of the “Great Outdoors”. I wanted to highlight these photos, as well as the fun Pink Paislee paper included in the kit. Using my Silhouette, I cut nesting squares from the patterned paper. I used the squares to create a background by using every other size square. Next, I stitched the squares down and added my photo and embellishments.”


Allie said, “Normally I reach for photos with people as the focal point, so I’m glad this challenge inspired me to use some beach photos!” Your beach photos look great, Allie! It is good to get scenery in our scrapbooks from time to time, isn’t it?


Do you have some scenic outdoor memories to document? Ready to play along? Here’s how:

1. Create a layout with with the theme of The Great Outdoors. The layout should be traditional or hybrid. This month’s Scrapbook Circle kit is perfect for this challenge, but any materials will do.

2. Post your layout to your blog, an online gallery, or social media site (be sure to tag Scrapbook Circle!). Comment on this post with a direct link to your layout.

3. For an extra entry, post your layout to our Facebook Community, Scrapbook Circle of Friends. Find the photo album titled “August Challenge – The Great Outdoors” and add your layout,

4. Link us to your entry by Sunday, September 11th, 9:00 pm PST. The randomly-selected winner of a $20.00 gift certificate to Scrapbook Circle will be posted on September 12th.

Good luck and happy scrapping!
