A shaped card

I think the little campers that are so trendy right now are so cute! I have seen several SVG files for different styles, but this one from the Silhouette store is my favorite! (You can find it HERE)

For my non-card maker friends I am going to show you how it all starts-

I start by arranging all of my papers on my mat to coincide with the design on my design software. (I prefer to use the Cricut mat with my Cameo. it works so much better for me.)
Then it is one and done- one time through the die cutter and I have all I need to build my card.

I adhere all of my pieces and embellish a little- a brad for the door knob and some pop dots, a little Bakers Twine and a couple of teeny tiny bows. 
The coordinating designer paper I used for the little curtains kind of gets lost with the other patterns.

I went back and added some outlines with a Micro tipped pen, now the curtains pop.

A few years ago I discovered some 6x6 zippered baggies and have been using them to store my scraps. I use my ATG to attach the baggie to the back side of the 6x6 paper pad. It is handy to have all of those little scraps together!! I  add coordinating cardstock to my scrap bag too.

Here is what my storage looks like. I them stand my 6x6 pads in a basket, it is so easy to grab and go.

Thanks for stopping by!!
Until later~

Love the trailer card! Isn't great to be able to arrange all the pieces like that? Love my Cameo! What a great idea for saving the scraps with the original pad they came in. Thanks for sharing!
