Awesome Kid - Boys Rule - Layout, Cut File and Tutorial

Hi there!

I am loading you up with goodies today, I have been creating for the Boys Rule Kit Club, with the amazing May / June kit and just loving every minute of it!

I made this layout to share:

I am having so much fun combining the fab Crate Paper Boys Rule goodies with the Fancy Pants Be Different line, they are just so perfect together!

Here are a few close ups:


I am also sharing the 'how to' directions for this page, in case you want to play along.

  1. trim down the Crate Paper 'Attaboy' patterned paper to 7.5 x 12, ink edges and adhere to the left side of the grey cardstock, with a staple in the top and bottom left-hand corners
  2. trim a .5 x 12 piece of the Fancy Pants 'Colorful Life' paper, ink and adhere over the seam of the 'Attaboy' paper and the grey cardstock
  3. trim the teal tag, striped tag and lined paper piece from the Crate Paper 'Cool Kid' patterned paper; ink the edges of all 3 pieces, punch a hole at the top of the 2 tags and tear the top of the lined paper piece; adhere these in layers behind your photo which should be placed  about 1.25 - 1.5 inches from  bottom and right-hand side edges (if you do not have your photo yet you can always quickly make a mat to hold your place)
  4. adhere smiley face toy (how fun is this) I used pop dots on mine
  5. ink and pop dot your title
  6. ink and adhere stickers as shown
  7. add doodling to tags
  8. add sequins as shown
And that's it a really quick and easy page for an awesome kid in your life!

Now I have a fun cut file for you!
as always, just click on the image to grab the file
