Good morning friends and welcome, so glad you could join me.
Today I would like to share with you a 'boy' layout using the ever so gorgeous 'Vintage Remnants' collection. It has got a very grunge but at the same time soft and sweet designs to it, perfect for all sorts of occasions.
Just Smile, so special, so you
I just love my flowers so I still add them to my boy layouts however to make it less feminine I usually use subtle colours and lots of other grunge elements like some corrugated cardboard and the gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard Cogs. I simply added some pewter embossing powder in a random fashion and it gave it this fantastic 'metal' look, so happy with how that turned out.
To balance all the darker colours I added some gorgeous white flowers among all the layers as well as some yellow burlap tucked in here and there. It creates some lovely highlights I think.
The other day I was also so pleased to find some preserved moss in a dollar store. Grabbed a few bags of it as I knew it would come in handy one day. I added some of this to this layout among the chipboard pieces and I just love the end result. Finished it off with my go to embellishment 'art stones'. Just love this stuff as well, it really finishes a layout perfectly by giving it that extra dimension.
Hope you like what I created here, hope I inspired you to get out your son's, grandson's or even brother and husband's photos and combine them with the beautiful 49 and Market Vintage Remnants Collection.
Until next time....

Hi there friends and welcome back to my blog. I have been lucky enough to be able to create with the absolutely gorgeous new collection 'Bold and Beautiful', you really have to see this collection in real life to appreciate its beauty.
The designs on the papers are just so stunning and you really don't need to add too much to it other then try to enhance it with some matching embellishments.
That is what I tried to do here, work with the printed design and just add layers like these gorgeous Stargazer flowers and various Laser Cuts I had left over from other projects.
I also used some Dusty Attic Chipboard which I pretty much left as is except I added a tiny bit of Walnut distress ink to highlight.
I always like to create many layers for dimension by adding of cuts of cardboard, so easy and creates that gorgeous 3D effect.
Finished it of with some tiny accents like bits of lace, cheesecloth and art stones.
There you have it, all finished, hope you like it.
Until next time.....

Hi there everyone, so glad you could join me again for another 49 and Market Design Team Project.
Today I am sharing this layout using the ever so gorgeous Dandelion Fields Laser Cut Sheet. Now I know I have told you about the Laser Cuts before but I just love them and they make for such a quick and easy layout but it still looks like you have spend hours creating it.
So by using lots of layering techniques I came up with this design.
So many gorgeous elements, just love that pop of yellow.
The close up photos really show off the layering process.
To be able to get this 3D effect I generally pop my photo on some cardboard to create height, that way I have got room to build all my embellishments, in this case the Laser Cuts.
Because the background paper has already got so many gorgeous designs and details I didn't add any more, this way the background paper shines in its own right.
I used Eclectic Pieces from the Captured Adventures paper collection for my background piece.
The piece I used for my photo mat is from the Extra Bonus Sheet, frame in the bottom left hand corner, they are the perfect size for a 3" x 4" photo.
And that is it, by just placing the Laser Cuts on my layout and playing around with the design, this is the end result, I hope you like.
Thanks so much for popping by and taking the time to read my post. I hope I was able to inspire you!
