Little Man Layout

On Saturday I attended our All Hands Team Training, hosted by the lovely Jacque. We spent the day making, listening and having fun. The very talented Delys Cram coached us through an awesome layout and I wanted to share how mine ended up. Check out the original on Delys's blog here. I was pleased with the way an essentially feminine layout could still be used for a boy. Photos of a grown man may have taken a bit more creativity, but a seven month old wasn't such a stretch.

And here's my now 18-month old checking out the 'low-lows' in the bottom corner and managing to be very gentle.

If you're a scrap booker, I'd highly recommend the On Board elements (Main Catalogue pp146-147). I've been wanting to try them for ages and now that I have, I'm definitely getting some! You can leave them as is, colour them, gloss them with Crystal Effects and much more...

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue (current Autumn-Winter Mini), Weathered Background Stamp ($39.95), Flower Fancy ($77.95)
Colours: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Soft Suede, Basic Black, Kraft, Whisper White
Others: Hodgepodge Hardware, On Board Timeless Type, Extra-Large Two-Step Bird Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Aquabrush (to weather the edges), Basic Black Journaller.


  1. WOW Susan! Your layout is just gorgeous! Isn't it amazing how we can alter these ideas to suit the photo's we have available.

  2. I love it too, Susan! So nice to meet you on Saturday - wasn't it fun?

  3. Thanks ladies! Lovely to meet you both on Saturday.
    Paula, I'm so impressed by your sponging. It was my first time with that technique. I managed to do better on the Rangitoto card than the bag. Thanks for sharing with us all. Don't believe you were a bag of nerves - you did so well.

  4. Susan I love your LO and those photos are made for it aye! Was so nice to finally meet you too.

  5. Love the LO & looks like the little man does too
