why is it that doing girls layouts is so much easier than doing layouts for boys? i did a layout last night for Steve, I’ve been mentally planning it for ages but it took hours, i just couldnt get the balance right. its taken me nearly 2 years to complete his first album wheres i have done two for Katie in barely a year. its so much easier to do girly layouts, you can go mad with flowers and alsorts of pretties but boys are so limited, there just isnt the fun funky embellishments for boys that are avaliable for girls. i always end up making things myself or having rather plain layouts. i’m quite pleased with last nights layout though, i used urban lily moody blue paper and black cardstock. and some funky alphas i have had for ages then finished it off with my trusty mm monogram stamps and hologram embossing powder.
was there life before my trusty mm foam stamp collection? i’ve only had them a month or so and use them constantly, they look great no matter what. as well as the monograms i have a smaller alpha set (dont ask me names, cant remeber) and the floral set. i can see me having to invest in other sets, they are so handy i can see why so many of the big name scrap professionals use them.
anyways i am off to charge up my camera so i can take some photos of my latest layouts and my new jar collection to post. laters people!
