Always Legos Layout September 30, 2015 07:00

 

Happy Wednesday Just Nick friends!  It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today.  I was super excited to be on the schedule for 'Boys 2 Men' themed week.  With two sons, I have plenty of rough and tumble pages to scrapbook.

It has been awhile since I made a page for my oldest son's album.  Now that he's 10 the picture opportunities with him are fewer and farther between.  Fortunately, I had managed to capture this recent picture of him with one of his latest lego creations.  Since this is such a big part of him and what he enjoys, I knew it deserved to be highlighted in his scrapbook.

I used the Open Triangle cut file to fill the background of my page.  I cut various sizes of the triangles out of white cardstock and used a combination of both the positive and negative cuts.

Filling the insides of the open triangles with varying patterned papers provides a fun way to add color and embellishment to the page.

Thanks for joining me on the blog today!  Make sure you stop back by the blog the rest of the week to see what the other amazing designers have created for 'Boys 2 Men' week.

Supplies used:

Open Triangles

 


This is My Happy September 29, 2015 07:00

I have three boys so I am all about the theme this week! Doing projects about boys takes a little different approach and sometimes some added creativity to make the supplies at hand work.  JustNick has tons of awesome files that are perfect for boy layouts!

The String Circle Background looked fun and I decided to incorporate that into a grid design.  Because it is a busier file I decided to cut it just in white so it wouldn't overwhelm everything.  I think this approach helps it add a nice punch to the layout - especially up against the vibrant colored squares!

I used one of the boxes to house part of my title and the Arrow Set 1 was perfect for adding some uniqueness to my title.

I just love how the white string art circle pops against the blue!

My title needed to be something bold to stand out amongst everything else.  The fonts on this Right Now Script were perfect and combined with black had the pop I was hoping for!  

Stay tuned all week for more masculine inspiration from the team!
