Echo Park Jack and Jill Boy with Barb
I was so happy to get to play with the new Echo Park Jack and Jill Boy collection. Sometimes I get frustrated with this industry in that it’s very hard to find a good boy collection. There are some very cut little boy collections but it can be difficult to scrap older teens, and men. This collection is perfect for my guys because it’s not cutesy. I love the deeper colours and the more “mature” graphics. I created three projects, but have so much left over and can’t wait to make more.
The Scrapbook Nerd Challenge, this week, is all about flair buttons. I was so happy to break into my collection of flair that I’ve been too scared to use.
I knew this picture would be perfect for this collection,. This was a quick layout, done by just cutting apart the border sheet and using all the strips as the background to the photo. Adding a couple of the flair buttons added just a bit more dimension to the project.
If you think you’ve seen this before, you’re right – it was a tutorial featured on Tuesday. It is a mini album created by using a switch plate cover from the hardware store, and the 4×6 cut apart cards in this collection.
You can see the full tutorial here: Dad Switch Plate Mini
I wanted to use some of the “old world” vintage icons that come in this collection. My sister had sent me this photo of our Grandfather which worked so well with this collection.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my projects.
Be sure to stop by the Scrapbook Nerd store where you will find all flair buttons on sale this week only.
