'Sweet individual' a step-by-step layout by Ingeborg Dijkstra

We have two boys and a daughter and since I *LOVE* girly stuff, I tend to make more layouts about our daughter than about my boys. But ... I am trying to scrap our boys more and more (and still sneak in 'girly bits' - just don't tell them, okay) ... This layout is an example of a 'boyish' layout with girly elements in it. And guess what? Rick, our son featured in this layout, loves this page! So it is ... a win-win situation!

  • patterned paper 'Rhapsody' (Bella, Kindred Spirit)
  • patterned paper 'Nonsense' (WeRMemoryKeepers)
  • 'Adore' Card black (Jenni Bowlin)
  • Layered Chipboard 'Nonsense' (WeRMemoryKeepers)
  • stamps 'Slight Alterations' (Tim Holtz)
  • a page from an ordinary note book
  • a tag from a pair of jeans
I stamped around the border of the patterned paper to make the paper a bit rough and grungy.

I put the 'Adore Card' on an angle behind the patterned paper. I like the strong deep brown colour on the card, which helps to make it more 'boyish'.

I created a title using the layered chipboard from WeRMemory Keepers. I also used an arrow to point to my 'sweet individual' son Rick. This chipboard is adhesive and so easy to use. I also like how it has glitter elements and colours on it:
I cut thin strips of the 'Nonsense' patterned paper. Instead of adhering the strips flat and directly to the paper, I used staples and folded the strips to create a bit more dimension. I used a part of a page from a notebook to write my journaling.
I used a tag from a pair of jeans I bought for the boys recently to have a 'one of a kind' embellishment. I used staples and some folds (like I did with the paper strips at the top) to adhere the tag to the layout. I finished with a chipboard bird from the 'Nonsense Chipboard' set.
This is the finished layout:
