Hi there Sheena here again.
Today I want to share some layouts I’ve created using the Crate Paper range – Cool Kid. I know this range is designed for scrapping young boys and i nearly over looked it for exactly that reason but on closer inspection I loved the colour combination in this range & and wanted to see how I could use it to scrap big kids.
For my first page I focused on the dinosaur embellishments and I when I looked through my photos I had loads I could use with this theme, this one was taken at Wookey Hole!
To create a spiky tooth like look to the Cool Kid Hooray paper I used the pattern of the paper to cut a regular triangle pattern which I then folded back on its self. I misted a piece of cardstock as my base before adding the Hooray paper over the top using foam pads for dimension. I really like how it breaks up this busy paper. The photo was layered with tags and paper from the Cool Kid 6×6 paper pad before adding the dinosaurs.
For this page focusing on travel, I used the Cool Kid Adventure paper as my background, this is my most favourite paper in the whole collection. Initially I was going to cut it up but I couldn’t bare too!!
So to highlight its beautiful layered look I hand stitched the layers as if they they were quilted together in coordinating floss. I clustered my matted photo and embellishments in one corner to show off the Cool Kid Adventure paper. The title is an acrylic word from the ephemera die cuts pack which I shortened from explorer to explore to suit my theme.
For my last page I focused on the doggy embellishments in the Cool Kid range. Now we don’t have a dog but my daughter is a huge fan of Snapchat & its filters & on a long car journey had we looking like a panda, rabbit & a dog as you see here!
Go go with the doggy theme I cut a suitable title with my silhouette cameo & backed it with patterned paper. I used one of the tags in the ephemera die cut pack as a template to cut more from the 6×6 paper pad then layered the embellishments and stickers over them. I used enamel dots to recreate doggy paw prints too.
I hope these pages inspire you to have a look at ranges in the shop which you wouldn’t normally go for. You will be pleasantly surprised.
Till next time x
