Get Out and See the World with this Fun Outdoor Scrapbook Layout

There is so much to do in the outdoors. Sometimes, we all get so caught up in our day-to-day lives and the things that happen on a screen that we forget about the outside world that we have available to us. However, the introduction of the Explorer collection serves as a great reminder as to all the things you can do and all the adventures you can have outside!

Step 1: Use the cream patterned paper as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a 5-1/4″ x 12″ strip of brown wood patterned paper. Using the Picket Fence Border Maker Cartridge, punch both of the long sides. Adhere it to the base about 1/2″ in from the left edge.

Step 4: Trim out a 4″ x 4-1/4″ piece of varied border patterned paper that includes the fishing poles, lures, water, paddles and canoes. Adhere to the blue striped piece, about 1-1/2″ down from the top edge. Then, using the Double Chevron Border Maker Cartridge, punch a border with green plaid patterned paper. Trim out two 4″ x 1″ pieces and add to the top and bottom of the varied border piece, as shown.

Step 5: Cut a 3/4″ x 12″ strip of brown plaid patterned paper and adhere it to the bottom of the layout, about 1″ up from the edge. Add a 2″ x 12″ strip of blue patterned paper above it.

Step 6: Crop two photos to measure 3″ x 4″ and one photo to measure 5″ x 3-1/2″. Mat the photos with brown and green patterned papers.

Step 7: Adhere the rustic sign and “Fishing” and “Adventure” stickers with Foam Squares to the layout as shown, tucking the “Be Free” and dandelion stickers in behind. Journal as desired.

  1. Wonderful layout. I really like the signpost. I’m not an outdoor girl. But I’m hoping to go to Garden of the Gods this summer. Maybe this would be a good collection to use.

  2. I love your layouts- they make me feel that I could actually do layouts like this. So nice of you to share and I am happy to copy your ideas.

    Thank you so much.

  3. Spending so much time at the lake with my family and friends, THIS is just the collection for us! Very excited to create an album of all our outdoor adventures! The color pallet and textures are trendy and versatile, opening the door for so many options. JUST LOVE IT!!
