Cutterful - Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits
I was lucky to get to guest design for Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits this month. This is a fairly new kit club dedicated to putting together awesome kits for Boy pages. Anyone who has a lot of boy photos to scrapbook knows that there aren't nearly as many options for masculine supplies as there are for the girly stuff. Boys Rule wants to help you find the best boy stuff out there and make it easy for you to get! No Girls Allowed, ha ha!
This is the first layout I made with the December "Big Boy" kit (there's also a December "Little Boy" kit, which is adorable!) This kit features perfectly grungy papers from Scrap Within reach, and they were loads of fun to work with.
I loved that there was a nice big sheet of clean corrugated cardboard in the kit (it's easy to get the dirty stuff in my blue bin, ha!). Of course, it didn't take me long to use the chalk ink pads from the kit and add some grungy colour (there were 4 of the new Ingvild Bolme inks by Prima - nice and creamy!).
I'm in love with any wood scrap supplies lately, and I was delighted to find these Pink Paislee letters in the kit. I decided to leave them bare for this page, so they would pop. This kit also included an awesome Smash book date stamp - just that little bit cooler than the average date stamp - you can be using this one on all sorts of things, for years to come.
The kit had a full sheet of Technique Tuesday coaster board stars. I customized them with two of the ink pads from the kit (the grey and the blue) and then lightly spritzed them with water so the colours would blend. Super easy! And the chunky zipper was also part of the kit - love this - it's like the boy version of lace.
