One for the boys !

Hello all..

This month I got to play with the fab and funky American Crafts Chap range, and I love it!! For this layout I used the sketch challenge from our recent retreat (I will post a copy of this up for you ASAP).

The thickers to match this range are very different, but match the papers perfectly and come in a few different colourways. I distressed mine a little to create the effect on my page.

The flowers on my layout I made using a fantastic border punch by EK Success Gerbera Daisy. I punched three strips for each flower and simply rolled the strip around a pencil, glued and then bent over the petals to create the flower. I also added small drops of pearl drops to the edges of the petals to make them stand out more.

Here is my supply list; EK Success Gerbera Daisy Punch
American Crafts Papers Chap - Jim, Dave, Mike & Ben.
American Crafts Chap - Remarks Sticker Book
American Crafts Chap - Brads
American Crafts Chap - Ribbons Chap Foil Thickers in Red
Tim Holtz Journalling Tickets

Have a fab Weekend

I used the exact paper range for this challenge at the retreat but must say yours is far better than mine!

Great to see a lovely boy range which sadly are hard to find.
