Hello Hello! It’s Michelle back today with a new layout using the super cool new Boys Rule collection. Absolutely loving the challenge this collection has given me in creating something that runs true to my style of scrapping. The colours are so fun, and the designs are perfect for boys. Just one slight problem, I don’t have many boy photos to scrap. So for todays layout I’ve chosen a previously scrapped photo of Leila and her cousin from a couple years ago.
I absolutely love the colours within this collection. Blues and greens are by far my most favourite colours, you wouldn’t think it though with all the girly florals I obsess over HAHA pinks and purples are still high up there though.
The patterns are all really fun, and I couldn’t help but squeeze them all onto the same layout by ripping strips of each paper using a ruler to create rough edged squares and rectangles. After arranging them all in a grid design I adhered them to the cardstock and sewed through each individual piece with a straight stitch on my sewing machine. I added an extra zigzag stitch to the rectangle ones for a little added detail.
Next up I added a sweet photo of Leila and her cousin, backed with some plain vellum from my stash and raised up using a piece of foam sheet to give create dimension.
I added my title to the layout next using words from the chipboard pack, which are all conveniently cut out ready to use now YAY! I cut the A off the ARE word to create YOU*RE and used the star in place of an apostrophe. I also added a little die cut tag from the Miscellany set and some handwriting to create the wording before the title.
To balance out the black of the title I’ve added another larger chipboard piece to the top of the photo. I tucked in a sticker tab from the accessory sheet, added a smaller star from the chipboard pack and a die cut star from the main ephemera pack. I say main as yes there are 2 ephemera packs! So much to choose from.
Over on the right I’ve added a couple more die cut ephemera pieces, some stickers from both the clear sticker set and the accessory sticker set, and another chipboard piece. I didn’t over do any of the clusters of embellishments on this layout, as I felt there was enough colour and embellishment with all the pattern papers in the background.
Then lastly a couple more stickers from the accessory sticker sheet and a chipboard star to tie it all together.
Well, thats all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
