Scrapbook Sunday # 33

Do you sometimes get stuck when it comes to creating masculine pages? I do. Here's one that can be used for any occasion, including father's day and birthday.

You may recognize the layout. It is a flipped version of last week's layout. Sometimes it helps people to see a familiar layout with different stamps, papers and embellishments. Its also good to know that you don't have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to designing pages...just use one that you have already created and switch out the elements.

I used the Neutrals Designer series paper stack for the background paper and the central paper block the other paper elements are all Mint Macaron card stock pieces. 

The framelits I used for this project are:
Project Life Paper Clips Thinlits
Tags and Labels Framelits
Mini Treat bag Thinlits

The stamp set is "Guy Greetings"

Have a blessed day,

Scrapbook Sunday # 32

Here's a Valentine's Day page, or it can be use for a wedding or other loving occasion.

I used "Everyday Chic" Designer Series paper for the background and center swatch on this 12" x 12" page layout.

The large heart is punched from red foil paper with the Sweetheart punch. the little bumps along the top of the center block is also punched from red foil paper with the Sweetheart punch.

The small heart punched banner uses the foil paper and the Hearts Border punch. I used one of the small punched hearts to accent the word Happy, which I die cut using the Hello You thinlits die set.

The striped paper along the bottom of the center block is the "Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series paper and I used the Direct-to-paper method with the Real Red ink pad. (use a tissue to wipe off the excess ink)

You can either machine stitch the red lines across the upper and lower sections, or do as I did and use a marker to faux stitch it.
