My Boy Layout by Zsoka Marko

Friday, March 25, 2022

Hey there lovelies, Zsoka Marko back with a scrapbook layout, as promised! As (almost) always, my starting point was a cut file. Actually, in this case, two. I knew I wanted to use the My Boy Cut File because I figured it would go with any collection and any design. But then I saw the Stripes Background Cut File and I just had to use that too!

We recently redecorated Maxim's room and we painted one of his walls in navy-white stripes. So I thought the cut file would be perfect for a photo of him in his room. I have used up all dark blue patterned papers from Paige's collections, I only have some scraps left - so I went with a navy cardstock. I was actually pretty lucky because I had just one full sheet! I die cut the Stripes Background Cut File from white cardstock and glued it in the middle of the navy cardstock. I added the thinner strips back in using foam tape to create a bit of interest, texture, and dimension.

I die cut the My Boy Cut File twice from white cardstock. This is not something that needs to be done, I just like the dimensional look this creates. Sometimes my cut file doesn't look very nice by the time I finish backing it, it's full of creases etc. This second layer hides those. I pulled out patterned papers from Bungalow Lane that are present in my photo: blues and mustard. I backed the letters and the stars in the cut file with various papers. I then attached this to the background with foam tape.

I layered tissue paper behind my photo and adhered it above the cut file, also using foam tape. I didn't want to throw away the white fall out pieces from the cut file, at least not all of them - so I glued together the two B's, O's and Y's and tucked them behind my photo. Maybe it makes no sense from a design point of view, but I like the way that looks haha!

I fussy cut out some labels/tags from Paper 23 and used them as embellishments. I also added Cardstock StickersFoam Phrase Stickers, and Embossed Puffy Stickers. I stamped my date on one of the tags and I stamped hearts on the other tag, using Paige's roller stamp from her Take Me Away collection. I added navy twine and glued these down with foam tape. I added foam tape to most of the embellishments actually. I like all that dimension! I wrote my journaling in the letter O - I specifically chose a lined blue paper to back this letter for this reason.

That's it! I hope you like how this page turned out! Thank you very much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
