Today is Father’s Day and I wanted to share a scrapbook layout that I made for last month’s scrapbook class.  We made two layouts one for Mother’s Day and one for Father’s Day.  Although both are flexible enough that you could use them for various things.  This is the masculine layout –

This layout idea was a combination of a couple of different layouts that my friend Wendy designed some time ago.  The colors are Not Quite Navy and Soft Suede with Basic Gray in the tools.

There are a couple of retiring items in this layout – first the GoGo Boots Alphabet Sizzlits die set of the Big Shot.  I use these whimsical letters a lot in my scrapbooking titles.  And then the Sanded background stamp.  I have been using it a lot and it really worked well with this layout.

The tools from Totally Tool are stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink and then watercolored with an Aqua Painter and classic ink.  Then they are all cut out – that the hardest part of this layout.

For the background – it’s a faux wood look.  Use the Not Quite Navy ink pad and pull it across the card stock – starting and stopping in different spots so it looks like the end of a piece of wood.  Then I used the Stampin’ Write marker to add nail heads here and there so the boards look like they are nailed down.

All the Soft Suede pieces are stamped over with the Sanded Background and sponged on the edges with Soft Suede ink – and round the corners with the corner rounder punch.

The title letters are die cut and some are stapled on and others are glued on and then I used the marker to add nail heads so they look like they are nailed to the board across the top.  I added some of the twill tape on both pages.

Thanks for checking in today.  Have a Happy Father’s Day!
