Hi everyone! I am back to share a quick layout with you all today featuring a pic of my fabulous husband Joel.

To create this layout, I have used various Heidi Swapp papers from both the Sugar Chic collection and the No Limits Collection. I just adore Heidi’s ranges and I was so happy to be able to use some of the super girly range Sugar Chic in a more masculine way.

Now I never pretend to be very good at male themed layouts but I think I have done my hubby justice here with lots of manly features alongside bright colours and a ray of sunshine feel. To decorate the background, I have used the Harlequin Crafters Workshop Stencil with a mixture Teal Bombay India Ink and some Texture Paste. I also used the negative from 2 A2Z Scraplets cogs packs to add some cog shapes around the border and before they had a chance to dry, I have quickly sprinkled some Silver Micro Beads to add some metallic effect to the cogs. I still wasn’t 100% happy with the cogs so I have gone and coloured some A2Z Scraplets Cog Chipboard pieces using some Dylusions Ink Sprays and Perfect Pearls Mists. Gotta add some sparkle in there hehehe.

I wanted to add this fabulous A2Z Scraplets Starburst to the layout as well and decided I would layer it with lots of fun papers. I simply sprayed it with some Yellow Perfect Pearls Mist and allowed to dry before I stuck everything down and slotted the starburst in between layers.

Lots of final touches included some Heidi Swapp Buzz Words, Charms Creations Super Star along with some doodling and journalling. I also decided to add some washi tape and Heidi Swapp Phrase Stickers as well. Doesn’t it look fab? How awesome are Heidi’s product? She is definately an idol of mine. 🙂

I had fun creating my background using 7 Dots Studio Patterned Paper and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays. I have also used strips of various papers from BoBunny, Heidi Swapp, Prima, as well as some old book paper.

Washi Tape was also added with some lace and an A2Z Scraplets scalloped piece which was actually a scalloped nested frame trimmed. I have simply coated this with some Perfect Pearls powder.

Above the strips of Washi Tape and Paper, I have added an A2Z Scraplets Heart & Swirl 7 Chipboard that has been simply coated with a layer of Cardboard Simply Jane Mist from Tattered Angels, and then some Stickles on the little hearts. I didn’t focus any details on the large heart because I knew I wanted to cover that with my photos.

Some old book paper was used to mount the photos and then some Helmar Scrap Dots helped me add them to my layout with a little height. Lots of fabulous flowers from Prima, Kaisercraft, Manor House Creations & Green Tara are nestled on top of a beautiful Flourish with a Bling Pearl Flourish.

Finally some alpha for the title and a little doodling/journalling then voila! my finished page. I have used Ranger Coffee Brown Archival Ink for all my distressing as well.

Well that is it from me today, Be sure to check back tomorrow for another layout share. Until next time, happy scrapping!
