Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global September 2019 Blog Hop! Our theme this month is What Little Boys are Made of and I’m honoured to be the guest designer!
If you are a scrapbooker, or would like to start, or get back into scrapbooking be sure to check out the Scrapbooking Global Stampin’ Up! Facebook group.
I chose the theme ‘what little boys are made of” for a few reasons.
- Because I love scrapbooking photos of my little boy (who isn’t so little anymore)
- Because there isn’t enough inspiration out there for boys. We see so many layouts with flowers, butterflies but not enough more masculine layouts.
- I wanted to see a whole blog hop dedicated to little boys!
My intention for this theme was to go in a completely different direction than I ended up going in. But a few weeks ago I came across these photos while looking for something else and just had to use them.
These photos were taken back in 2008 when we surprised the kids with a trip to Disney Land. I’m so glad I snapped these photos they are just so precious. So I thought it would be fitting to use some song lyrics (My Wish by Rascal Flats) as my journaling.
I really wanted to combine annual and holiday catalogue items so out came my stitched stars dies. To create a subtle background I used them as a template and did some paper piercing. It’s just enough to add a soft touch but not be too overwhelming.
Then from the annual catalogue I pulled the Come Sail Away dsp and the braided trim.
Thanks so much for hopping along, be sure to check out the other blogs for more little boy layouts. Click the next button to take you to see what Stasia Sloma created for the hop.
Have a creative day!
