PPCC 387 design team creations with camping theme and blue yellow green color palette

R. V. having fun yet?

I really like how this little scene turned out. The sentiment was cut into a puffy cloud shape and then edges inked in blue with little foam squares then behind it to lift it up.

and 2nd use for the image was to enlarge it with printing option of full page:
isn't this a cute camping theme scrapbook layout? (and more pics shown further down)

PPCC blog's design team creates inspirational works of art to not only highlight prize sponsor's products but hopefully motivate fellow crafters into submitting their crafted works to either win a prize or recognition honor. This week it is another anything goes theme challenge #387. Personally I selected a camping trailer (Camping is Fun digital image) from my designated sponsor, Pattie's Creations Digital Images which sets my theme. For my 1st craftivity, I made an easy scrapbook layout. The background tree paper and the ladybug border computer paper are old stock. The teal blue thin cardstock is from a watercolor patterned cardstock pack from Colorbok. I used some stencils to create the sun rays in the corner, lettering for R. V. and for the little heart-shaped face. I love the yellow, blue, and green hues used to color the camper trailer! So adorable!!! Link for #387:

 PCDI's badge. My digital image is from PCDI. Thanks! 4 more DT members are creating with their products, so make sure to visit the PPCC blog post and give us all some feedback.

This is Polkadoodles' badge. Half of the DT are creating with their product(s), so also visit the PPCC blog post to see what was available from this sponsor. And read the prize details from each sponsor, challenge deadline date, participation guidelines, etc.

Inspired By's no 26 photo inspirational challenge since June 29 has been camping--Let's Go Camping. Laurel's blog post for this challenge and her DT crew haven't necessarily focused on camping. Some have used the colors. Some have used quilting looks in their paper creations. Some have used the trees or shapes/lines of the dresser. What does this photo motivate you to paper craft?


My 2nd DT entry is a cute little thinking of you card. The light blue base is 4" x 6.25" and the light gray base is 5" x 7" I believe.

Design notes:
a. old stock: muted teal/pine green/gray patterned paper, cloud print computer paper, thinking of you stamp, blue ink pad
b. light blue cardstock=Colorbok
c. light gray cardstock, and the teal chevron on newsprint patterned paper=The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby
d. birds on a wire=clip art found online
e. teal green glitter decorative tape= sorry, I forget where I bought it about 2 months ago or so
f. camping is fun image is from Pattie's Creations Digital Images printed at contact sheet size with 3 copies, so it looks like a row at a campground site.

Some different close up views of my scrapbook layout:

Still crafting in the USA heartland, Becca...Happy Independence Day, America!!! 242 years!!!
