Happy New Year friends! It’s Kylie back with you all today with a brand new layout to share. The Design Team has a theme of Holidays/Vacations this week so I am sharing my take using one of my favourite collections-  Boys Rule .I’ve also added a few teency tiny pieces of More Than Words and Happiness.

I had a pretty cute photo of my little man to scrapbook, from when we had a beach holiday a few years ago.Coming from a cold climate our kids love nothing better than time at a beach. The papers ‘Expressionist’ and ‘Straight & Narrow’ were used as my background.The top paper being trimmed down slightly smaller to provide a border of contrasting colour underneath. I decided to incorporate a cut file for my design, and chose this ‘Summer’ grid from Paige Evans.

Each grid of the cut file was backed with different papers as I wanted as much colour and detail included as I could. A few of the elements were backed with papers from the other 2 collections mentioned, purely so I could have the exact colour I wanted.

My photo was traced and cut to fit the sun in the middle of the cut file. I was very careful to get it exact and to not use too much glue to adhere it, so that it wasn’t marked in any way. To complete my design I added several of the die cuts as well as phrase stickers for some mini sub-titles.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your New Year is full of scrapbooking fun!

Kylie.
