Hey there Peeps! Today I am sharing a very special project I created especially for my Hubby for Father’s Day ( it’s a little late.) He and my younger Son went on an amazing adventure last summer that was a life changing experience for them. They spent 10 days hiking 91 miles in the mountains in New Mexico at the Philmont Boy Scout Camp with some of their best friends. Thanks to a great camera on his phone he was able to capture the amazing trip to share. I can’t possibly scrap all the pics…but here are some good ones….especially of them together.
The Take A Hike Collection from BoBunny is just too perfect to scrap these outdoorsy pictures.
Since this is a gift…I wanted to be able to include lots of pics so I’m using this fabby box filled with tags. I started by giving all the chipboard pieces a nice base coat of flat black acrylic. Then added loads of layers of patterned papers.
Using the sheets from the 6 x 6 paper pad I was able to incorporate the full patterns for the outside of the box.
I took advantage of the smaller front section to add the layered stickers and ephemera pieces giving this project a lot of depth. Chocolaty colored ribbons, buttons and brads really adds a great detail and still maintains the woodsy style.
I had so much fun combining the patterned papers and embellies to create tags with similar…but coordinating looks.
The backs are finished as well and has room for larger pictures.
I created a small open top box to add to the tag on the left. It has one smaller decorated tag and additional journal tags so my Hubby can share his favorite memories from camp.
You can see that he has a ton of room for journal tags in this little box.
After adding the pictures I was able to go back and incorporate the ephemera pieces to accent the tags.
I used the patterned papers to cover smaller chipboard frames for some of the close up pictures.
To help separate the busy patterns I used borders of black cardstock. This picture of my guys on the top of the mountain is one of my favorites.
6 tags finished front and back. All different…but similar to keep a consistent look throughout.
