Femenine and Masculine Layouts with Glitz Design

Hello everyone! I'm excited to back today to share a couple of pages I created using the beautiful new collection Vintage Blue. I adore the bold colors on this line and thought it was perfect for a grungy LO with a soft edge.

This first page you saw before as I created it using sketch #2 from My Creative Sketches sketch challenge.

I used my Big Shot to cut out some gears with chipboad and embossed them using Distress embossing powder. I also added a few flowers but since they have a newsprint design, I thought they could be somewhat manly, what do you think? Did I get away with it? LOL!

The photo here is my husband and son embracing each other. I thought that was a sweet moment to document and the tulle trim was used to add some softness to the overall feel of the page.

For my background, I used a Crafter's Workshop brick template and misted with Glimmer Mist. I love the new stamps which I added in the corner here.

For my next page, I created a more femenine design with the same collection. I wanted to show how versatile Vintage Blue can be!

I did some detailed cutting and layered the images around my photo.

Some of the cut out elements were poped up with dimentionals. I also inked the edges and stitched around my background paper.

I hope you feel inspired to work with this beautiful collection. Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Wow Jolaine these pages are just stunning. I love the way you showed the masculine and feminine uses. Being a mum of both, like you, it's great to see the different perspectives.
Such a cute pic of your beautiful dd and lovely one of your boys.
