JustRite: May 2013 Release - Day 4

For today's JustRite® Papercraft May 2013 Release, we are introducing three stamp sets, all with a "journey" theme. I used two sets (Monogram Your Journey and The Journey Background Stamp) and a sneak peek of tomorrow's release, Pattern Basics set, to create my oldest son's scrapbook page, "A Young Man's Adventure".

今日は、5月新スタンプセット Explore Vintage Labels Four, Monogram Your Journey & The Journey Background Stampの紹介です。三つの中から、2つのセット を使って、レイアト完成しました。来月、長男が高校から卒業の予定です。 記念として、下記のレイアウトを作りました。

I wanted to make the photo look bigger so I triple matted it, used three different patterned papers for interest. All the edges were distressed using my paper edger.

Next, I determined where to place the matted photo...

The Pattern Basics set was perfect for an accent border. I wasn't sure which color to use so I tested the area behind the photo to determine which looked the best. Note that I used two patterns together to create an argyle border.

The title was from Authentique Paper's Strong Collection sticker sheet. I crossed out the "boy" and wrote "Young Man's" to fit the theme :) Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ 3D Square Foams were used to create dimension and then used ScraPerfect's Perfect Crafting Pouch to "de-stick" the sticker.

For the background stamp embellishment (shown on the lower right corner of the page), I did the following steps:

Stamped the image on cream cardstock.

Torn the edge close as possible to edge.

Crumple paper, inked and misted for desired coloring.

Stamped the image three times: white cardstock x 2 and craft foil once. Fussy cut the sentiment on cardstock and anchor on craft foil. Add twine. Assemble pieces and adhere to page.

LOVE how this turned out and one to add to his high school scrapbook album :)
