Wild, Free, & Petrified!

This week, my Imaginisce teammates and I are celebrating the new release of the Outdoor Adventure collection. I've got two fun projects to share, so thanks for dropping in to check them out!
I have been wanting to scrap a fun little trip we took with my son to The Petrified Forrest, one of those strangely fascinating roadside attractions that you always drive by but rarely venture into. So, when I saw the Outdoor Adventure collection, I was really excited! 

The woodgrain patterned paper was about as perfect as things could get. I tore the paper into a background element and the colors from the collection are some of my favorites. 

The sticker alpha page made creating my title so easy and quick and I was glad to have the chance to scrap one of our family's best memories.

I am always on the lookout for masculine collections because in my little family, it's all about boys with my son and husband outnumbering me! I wanted to create a really fun birthday card for a boy, and when I saw the darling ATVs and motorbikes, I knew they would make for a great interactive card. 

I used the Outdoor Adventure ATV Die Cut as my moving element and stamped my sentiment in such a way as it would be revealed when it was moved across the card. The "Wild & Free" Chipboard was the perfect accent to my very "boy" card.

I adore that first layout! The sepia toned images look fantastic with that woodgrain paper and I love how you tore it out. Great work!
