Designer Tip: Paris' cool outdoor layout is so easy to create, with most of the supplies already coordinated for you in the Great Outdoors Finished in a Flash!™ page kit! She just added a little white cardstock and voila!–a fun outdoor layout that really is finished...in a flash!

Supplies:

Instructions
Left Page

  1. Place one sheet of striped paper with the stripes running vertically. Mat a 12"x6 3/4" piece of white cardstock on brown textured paper and trim the mat to 1/8". Glue across the center of the striped paper, leaving the bottom edge unglued.
  2. Mat a horizontal and a vertical photo on ivory cardstock, trimming the mats to 1/8". Glue the horizontal photo in the bottom left corner and the vertical photo over the right side of the white cardstock. Journal on the blank brown tag punch-out and glue it overlapping the right edge of the vertical photo. Use a Zot™ to attach a knot of tan ribbon over the tab.
  3. Cut two 2 1/2" lengths of tan ribbon. Criss-cross the ribbons in the top left corner of the white cardstock, wrapping the left ends around the left edge of the page and taping them to the backside. Glue the “Explore” punch-out overlapping the right ends of the ribbons, then foam tape the “E” and compass punch-outs over “Explore”.
  4. Add a green brad to the tabs of three tag punch-outs. Cut three 1" lengths of tan ribbon. Secure one end of each ribbon length behind the bottom right edge of the matted white cardstock, then foam tape the tags over the loose ends. Finish gluing the bottom edge of the matted cardstock in place.

Right Page

  1. Place the other sheet of striped paper with the stripes running vertically. Mat a vertical photo on ivory textured paper, trim the mat to 1/8" and glue over the left side of the page. Journal onto the small blank green tag punch-out and glue it over the top left corner of the photo. Use a Zot™ to attach a knot of ivory ribbon over the tab.
  2. Mat a 4 1/4"x12" piece of white cardstock on brown textured paper and trim the mat to 1/8". Attach the camp sign Brad Buddy™ centered at the top of the cardstock, then journal below. Criss-cross two ivory ribbon lengths across the bottom of the cardstock, taping the tails to the backside. Glue the cardstock down the left side of the page.
  3. Journal on the blank ivory tag punch-out and add a green brad to the tab. Glue the tag with the tab over the criss-crossed ribbons. Glue the “camping” tab punch-out even with the top left edge of the cardstock.
