Scrapbook Layouts with Simple Stories Trail Mix!

Hello friends! Karla back today with four fun layouts using the awesome Simple Stories Trail Mix collection!! This is a wonderful summertime, adventure collection, which could be used into the Fall! This first layout we made Live on Facebook, but I've added an edited video below which you can view on YouTube! Be sure to scroll down to see three more projects!! Seriously I just couldn't stop!


I used the Creative Scrapbooker July sketch as a starting point for this layout, but flipped the orientation. I added in Distress Oxide Inks and a Vicki Boutin World Traveler Stencil from her Where To Next Collection.

There are so many fun elements in this collection - I used the Decorative Brads, Patches Bits and Pieces, Chipboard Stickers, Foam Stickers and the 12 x 12 Collection Pack, which also includes stickers. I also pulled in some of the Fall Color Vibe papers from the 6x8 paper pad. There are lots of fun papers available in the Color Vibe Line

I added on The Robin's Nest Dew Drops and some hemp twine for my cut apart tag and then journaled on the tag and around my photos.

Next, I created a layout using the August sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker VIP Group. I added in some stenciling again with the Distress Oxide Inks. The colours just happen to go perfectly with our Summer Colour Palette Challenge in the Scrap Shotz Papercrafting Facebook Group! You have until the end of the month to add a project for a chance to win! Check out the Album with details HERE!

I added the Decorative Brads and used various pieces from the collection to add a few clusters of embellishments.

I created my title using the Foam Stickers, Patches Bits and Pieces and a sticker from the collection pack!

I added a few Oxide Ink splatters with the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush, which always gives a cool effect!

Thirdly, I created a layout documenting our travels out to the mountains.

I used one of the 4x4 cut apart cards and those pretty Color Vibe papers and created a grid design with strips of patterned paper.

This cute camper is so fun!! I added in a cluster of embellishments and those lovely The Robin's Nest Dew Drops!

Lastly, I used the beautiful trails and trees paper and the August sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge FB Group

The cut apart tags are great for journaling on, making tag booklets or just as decorative elements.

I added a foam sticker title, a cluster of embellishements and matted my photo with some of the Color Vibe Fall paper. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I love how these all turned out! And, I'll be back on Thursday with FOUR more layouts with this collection!! 

PS. Don't forget to stop by the Scrap Shotz Facebook Page at 1 pm MT on Thursday for a fun LIVE Demo - every week!!
