Hi! I’m Shantaie Fowler and as much as I do love the outdoors, I have to confess I’m not much of a camper! Next week my cousin and her girls are coming to visit me, and have decided to go camping, so I made them a mini album to document the trip. My cousin and I are a lot like Lucy and Ethel when we get together, so I am sure there will be plenty of “memorable” moments to fill this album!
I just love the shape of this trailer, and a pink camping trailer as the cover of the album is so much fun for a girls camping trip! I know they will love the colors, and sense of whimsy!
Each page has its own color combo, and embellishments. Some pages have been left a little more open for the addition of journaling and multiple photos. Other pages were filled up with adorable outdoorsy images and sentiments leaving room for smaller photos and memorabilia, to make it easy for a novice scrapper to complete.
The front and back cover have a piece of chipboard sandwiched between the papers for strength and stability, the inner pages have an extra layer of cardstock to support photos and years of “flipping” through memory lane!
A mini album is a great gift for outdoors adventurers, and campers! Take a closer look at your Cricut cuts to see if there is a fun or interesting shape that could be used as a mini album. Or scraplift this idea and create your own trailer album, the cut files are below for you to use and enjoy!!!
Happy camping! And happy creating…oh…and wish me luck! *wink*

There is something so welcoming and relaxing about a barbeque. I’m Shantaie, and I think we can all agree that cooking outdoors is one of summertime’s greatest joys! You will most likely host at least one cookout before the leaves start to fall, and maybe quite a few gatherings filled
with friends, family and good food!
We have a few big celebrations during the summer, although I am short on time I do love to throw a shindig! We keep the menu simple, and the decorations laid back. With the help of my Cricut I can add a few really great details to my table and make our BBQ a memorable event.
For a gorgeous and rustic table setting, fill simple canning jars with silverware, a bandanna to serve as a napkin, and a tag that can double as a place card if needed. The tag can be a little take home favor keepsake as well!
Bottles of condiments are a mainstay at any cookout, that’s a given – but the clutter of multiple half-filled bottles and jars leave a little to be desired in the looks department. Simple solution, pick up a few squeeze bottles and give them fun and cute labels. To save the labels for reuse,
simply slide the band off of the bottle and store, and your bottles can be kept in the refrigerator with no worry of ruining your label.
Spark up the grill, pull out the croquet set, and enjoy a summer BBQ! Whatever the occasion, or whatever your theme use Cricut to make it!
