Hi there, its Melissa here again, and today I’m back with a 12 x 12 traditional layout for you, made with the amazing April Kit “Origins”. Recently I had a request via a comment on my YouTube channel for more boy layouts, and it was from a friend who has three boys. I have one boy (turing 9 on the 29th or March) and two girls (aged 6 and nearly 2), and of course there is also my husband. But if you know my scrapbooking, you’ll know that I always gravitate towards girly product and layouts! I’ve noticed that my daughters are starting to either catch up or take over my son in the number of layouts – not that its a competition, but I do scrapbook because I love to record their memories.
So I’ve decided to make an effort to scrap more pages of my son, and thats what todays layout is about! I was totally inspired by this piece of paper called “Happy Little Moments”, and I knew I wanted to cut it up.
Here is my layout featuring a photo of Sam jumping off the play tower after a Nerf War, which was his summer obsession this year (its currently Autumn here in New Zealand). I made a process video (below) and you’ll see my process with deciding how to place the triangles once I’d cut them apart.
I didn’t need to add much more patterned paper except for the border around my photo, because the background already had enough going on. I made my title with one of the chipboard words (which you can purchase in the store as a kit add on here).A close up of my triangles, I machine stitched around the outside, and then lifted up the edges for dimension and interest.I love the look of joy on his face! I used the wood veneer paper clip as an actual paper clip. You can purchase the wood veneer pack as a kit add on in the store here.
And here is my process video.
Thanks so much for looking! I hope your Easter weekend was blessed!
