June Scrap Our Stash Challenge #4

SCThoseGuys

The June Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is a All About Our Guys!  Create a Male layout using at least 5 brads from your stash!  What a great challenge for the month of June with Father’s Day.

Here is my layout:

Boy Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Later Sk8r Paper Packet, CTMH Fast and Furious stamp set, CTMH inks (Slate, Pear, Outdoor Denim, and Lagoon), Bazzill Collection Metals – Mono Mix Brads, and Making Memories Plain Charmed Photo Corners.

With three girls, I rarely do masculine layouts.  However, I had these pictures of my nephew and they were begging for me to use this stamp set!  The brads were easy to incorporate and I also added some metal from my stash.

What will you create? Go to Scrap Our Stash to submit your own layout.  You have until June 29th.

Challenge: Scrapbook.com – Page Maps Sketch Challenge

I used this sketch from Sketch Support:

What started out as a dreaded layout turned into a happy ending.  I think the sketch was what did it for me.  It is very hard to get good sports (action) photos and the smaller photos suggested on this sketch made me “zoom in” on the action and really focus on my daughter.  I have to say that this is my first use of Washi Tape and OMG I am in love – very cool stuff!  I have to also say that these rubons are wonderful…you will be seeing them in the near future as I finish a couple more volleyball layouts.

Below are my cards.  
At first I was going to change up all the cards.  I liked the layout but wasn’t sure about the colors and I use mostly birthday and anniversary cards.  Then I went back and looked at them a second time and had a different perspective.  Really, these cards can work for pretty much anything!  So I kept them as is and then made one additional one of my own.  I wasn’t sure about the Twilight color on the heart card but liked it in real life better than the picture.  You can change up the colors on any of these cards to make them completely new and different like I did with the red heart card.  There was enough papers to cut what I needed for 5 of these cards (in addition to the cards in the kit).  I just needed card bases and I used Tulip Cardstock and Tulip Ink.  Tulip is a retired color but you could use Ruby or Cranberry for the same look.
