BOYS pretty much RULE - CREATE magazine - Scrapbook Generation

The July issue of CREATE is available for download now.  The magazine is downloadable  HERE and the free sketches are available HERE.    The magazine is choc-a-block full of ideas and inspiration. This month the featured manufacturer is WeR Memory Keepers and Bazzill.

Today I am sharing my take on this month's sketch.  You know how much I love sketches and I don't get to do colour blocking every day so I just couldn't resist this page.  I used some photos of Juan for this page, he is such a cutie.

Supply list:  Patterned papers: Echo Park; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter Stickers: American Craft thickers, Basic Grey; Stickers: Echo Park; Wood Veneer: Studio Calico; Brads: Echo park, My Minds Eye; Twine: Simple Stories; Embroidery floss: DMC; Dies: Quickutz stars;  Star clusters:  Silhouette Cameo.

 Some close ups:

 I cut the strings of stars with the Silhouette Cameo and then stitched through them.  The large stars were cut with Quickutz on the Big Shot.

 I love using a mix of sticker alpha's for titles.  I also wrapped some twine around the one pattern paper block.

 This Kaisercraft line is perfect for boys and the words are cut from some of the patterned papers.
A mix of embellies to form the star cluster.

Please check out this magazine.  There is so much inspiration by the Design will not regret it.
