Hey crafty friends! Thanks for joining me today as I share this Father Son Bike Trip Scrapbook Layout. I was inspired by one of the case files over at Color, Stories, Inspiration. They have three pieces to use as inspiration, but the one that really struck me right away was case file 272.
The first thing that jumped out at me about the case was the children, or they could be elves, were outside playing in the tree with birds and squirrels. I had photos of my husband and son out enjoying nature on an 18 mile bike ride. Totally fits right!?
The light background of the inspiration scene also provided inspiration for the background paper I chose to use. I don’t usually use patterned paper for my background, but this one wasn’t so overwhelming that I thought I could work with it.
There was also paper with bicycles on it, and since this was a bike trip, that obviously had to go on the page as well. There was also one bicycle sticker on the sticker sheet, but can I tell you how huge it was! This was one of those collections where all the ephemera was just so large. My solution was to cut the bicycle off the front sheet where it shows you all the paper partners in the kit. It was just the perfect size!
The large photo on the page is 4 but about 5.5. The two smaller photos are 2×2 made using the collage function in picmonkey. With the college function I can print six 2×2 photos on one 4×6 paper. I’ll plan two pages that have small photos and print one 4×6…saves my photo paper and ink that way.
Thanks for sticking with me as I explained this page. I hope to do at least one more of the case files this month so keep a look out for that. In the mean time….stay crafty!
