Scrapbooking while camping.


These are some of the scrapbooking projects I made while camping. These small embellishments are easy to make, when I have a little time and a small space to work in,  I will be using them in future layouts. It’s a good use of card-stock and patterned paper scraps.

I made the paper flowers using one large circle stencil, one large circle punch and one medium circle punch from rubber-stamped card-stock.  I divided the circles, cut slots, rounded the corners with a nail-clipper, inked and distressed the edges and attached them together with brads.

Scrapbooking outside while we are camping.

Scrapbooking inside our camper.One can do scrapbooking in a small space or away from home if you are well prepared. What I have experienced is that the lights inside are poor and the lights get warm to work under, so we replaced them with LED camper bulbs. My Fiskars guillotine paper trimmer is on the table as well as an empty tissue box holder, not shown in the photo, for scraps. Nikon D300 ©

I keep my most used tools on the table in a pencil-case. Small and larger Scissors, ruler, stapler, pencil, pencil eraser, craft knife, glue stick, ink-pads, pencil sharpener, mechanical pencils, tweezers, punches, rubber-stamps, Decorative Edge Scissors, eye makeup applicators, toothpicks, acid-free pen, nail-clipper,bone folder, etc. Photo Nikon D70 ©

I was dying to try out some new rubber-stamps, but I found that they dried out too quickly. Aren’t they beautiful ? I got them at a thrift-store for a bargain. I cover my work with wooden place mats, (blue stripes in photo) when I’m not at my table. I added more tools added to my pencil case, like emery boards, small tissues, protractor, etc.

Working outside in the fresh air in the shade. You want good natural light, but also shade. A comfortable chair and a good table. If the wind blows your paper can blow away or get dusty. 

Bear-spray on the table, just in case. 😉

Although I can hang tools from the sides, I don’t as they catch on things.

    Your scrapbooking while camping looks so relaxing! Between the mannequin form and the bingo, it so reminded me of my grandmother!

    I have to admit that scrapbooking is WAY down the list of things i would have considered feasible while camping! The secret is clearly in just how organised you are.

    It takes some planning, so does camping especially when boondocking.

      It takes some planning, my toolbox is stocked with mostly duplicate supplies, I try not to remove anything, now it’s much easier.
