The new Live Beautifully paper collection that Close To My Heart created for National Scrapbooking Month is full of roses, peonies, pinks and purples. Girly paper, right? Right, except not entirely! Most of my scrapbooking is about boys and men, so I decided to see if I could come up with some more masculine layouts from this “girly” paper.
For the first layout, I used the gold embossed polka dot paper as the background. I added cuts from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge by Close To My Heart to make a layout suitable for a graduation or other accomplishment.
The second layout has the blue/green ombre as background papers with Chocolate and Lagoon cardstock accents. The colors, the Flower Market images and the touch of burlap ribbon work together to give this a masculine flair. This layout would be perfect for some travel or “outdoorsy” photos.
The final layout has a nautical feel with the cute sailboat and anchors, also from Flower Market. I used the black and white striped paper as the background and then lots of bright colors from the Adventure palette and a bit of Lagoon ribbon. I can see Father’s Day photos on this layout!
So what do you think–can Live Beautifully be used for masculine layouts too? I certainly think so and can’t wait to get some photos of my guys on these layouts!
