As a mom to three boys, I feel like I am always scrapbooking boy birthdays! Because of that I am always happy to get my hands on a new boy birthday collection that has great patterned papers and embellishments. Birthday blast has those and so much more! Christine joining you today to share an Epic Boy Birthday Layout!
This layout contains lots of layers with the patterned papers and various banners really being the highlight. I made use of papers from both the 6 X 8 paper book and the 12 X 12 papers.
I was drawn to the wonky striped paper "Yay" and decided to use that as a unique base beneath my photos and patterned paper. I cut them out and then distressed the edges so that they would add some neat texture. Because the stripes weren't perfectly straight, I was able to keep that from being a distraction by doing the distressing. I chose which color stripes to use based on the colors in my son's shirt.
I also made use of several of the birthday present shapes in chipboard, cardstock stickers, and bits & pieces. I added a "9" to one of them from the 6 X 8 sticker pad to help personalize the story.
The title is probably my favorite part of this layout. His shirt says "epic" on it, so I knew that I wanted to include that word. By combining the Color Vibe Foam Letter Stickers with the script cardstock stickers, I was able to create a really eye catching and colorful title.
If you've got another boy birthday layout to capture, get your hands on Birthday Blast and have a blast ;) creating with it. Be sure to swing by my YouTube Channel to see the full video on how this came together!
