Hi loyal blog readers and welcome to some newbies in my blog. You're probably here cause you're "hopping" along with GCD Studios in our new line reveal party. Again welcome and feel free to roam around. "Mi Casa is Su casa". *smile*
For my share today I made two layouts with the Vintage Boy line. One thing (among other things) that I really like about GCD studios papers is that there's a lot of texture on them. Yes they have the fun designs to them but every collection also have embossed, glittered and foiled papers. This totally adds to the fun of it all.
King for a day
because the line was geared to a more masculine tone it was the best excuse for me to make a page about my hubby. This one was all about Father's day of last year. We definitely tried to treat him as a King, even if it's just for a day (just kidding!)
I love that each collection have a sheet of die cuts and labels to play with. Adding these little gems of a detail makes this page even more fun to make for me.
because my background paper was full of design already, I went a little less on the layering. The journaling blocks and glitter letters included in the collection made it easy for me to finish this in a snap.
Each pattern paper has a distressed back side. It was definitely hard for me to choose which one I was going to use for this page.
I tucked in my journaling block inside my picture.
the embossed star was cut from one of the pattern papers in the pack. As you can see, you can use a whole sheet of the paper or cut out the embossed part and use them as fun embellishments.
the diamond paper behind the word f was also cut out from a bolder designed paper. I used a chipboard letter (from my stash) for the f. I adhered it onto one of the papers from the collection with the distressed paper showing up, trimmed and distressed the edges.
So hope you enjoyed my Vintage boy share. To continue with the party please "hop" on over Lynn's blog.
See you guys tomorrow,
