Cool Scrapbook Layouts for Boys and Men
Creat a page about their sporting days
Dedication by Laina Lamb. Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper; Patterned paper: American Crafts and Scenic Route; Brad, and chipboard letters: American Crafts; Punches: EK Success and Fiskars Americas; Font: Century Gothic; Software: Adobe.
Many boys play sports, and we scrapbookers have a ball recording every thrilling moment. Laina Lamb shows us a great way to create embellishments to spice up those action shots: she matted brads with punched shapes to create accents that complement the patterned paper.
Write a note to your teen and include it on your page
Teen by Heidi Sonboul. Supplies: Cardstock: GCD Studios and Scrap within Reach; Patterned paper and tags: Scrap Within Reach; Buttons and metal: Maya Road; Adhesive: 3M.
Show off your teen's photos by surrounding them with his favorite bold colors, like Heidi Sonboul did. Want to add an extra personal touch? Journaling in your own handwriting will make your page a keepsake to treasure. Although your teen may not appreciate it all now, he will when he grows up to be the gentleman you're raising him to be.
Scrapbook about the fun you have
Laugh Daddy by Kim Arnold. Supplies: Patterned Paper: Jenni Bowlin Studio; Chipboard: Inque Boutique; Die cuts: Collage Press; Bookplate and tag: 7gypsies; Letters and pen: American Crafts; Pearls: Kaisercraft; Metal: Making Memories; Other: Button and string
Although the products on Kim Arnold's page aren't strictly masculine, she created a manly feel by separating the die-cut circles and adhering them to her page in an eye-catching, offset pattern.
