So, on to telling you about my layout. I started with a simple background and added some glimmer mist using Crafter's Workshop stencils. I also used some glimmer mist to customize my letters.
There are a lot of very girly products from Love My Tapes, but don't let that fool you - there are also a lot of products that are awesome for little boy pages, and I found some that totally worked for a Christmas page. The brown suede fabric sheet has a great texture, and with the help of a die cutter, the green and red polka dot fabric sheets make fun holly shapes.
This green plaid fabric sheet is perfect for Christmas projects, and the brown check fabric tape is great for boy pages. This lace is subtle enough to add to masculine pages. (I'm in love with these wooden buttons too!)
I added doodled 'stitches' to the holly for a little more definition.
Thanks for stopping by on the Love My Tapes Christmas Blog Hop - don't forget to visit Lisa at the next stop on the tour!
