If you have a kiddo around the age of 10 then I can almost guarantee that he/she has an obsession with electronics. My 10 year old son, Aidan, is no exception. I wanted to document his love for his electronics so I grabbed the Better Days Cut File from The Cut Shoppe.
I sized and cut all of the days of the week from the Better Days Cut File in black cardstock so each word would fit in a vertical line down the layout.
The Bella Blvd Alex Collection has a lot of gaming themed embellishments so I knew it would be perfect for this layout. I wanted to highlight each word from the cut file so I grabbed a few acrylic paints from my stash that matched the Alex Collection. I used a dry paintbrush and added a strip of paint behind each word in a rainbow order.
I positioned my photos on the right & left of the cut file words and added numerous game themed die cuts, tabs and stickers from the Alex Collection. I also added journaling using my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter , cutting it into strips and adding it under the photo.
I wanted to add a bit more detail to the layout so I used color on color stickers on the paint strips, added Black Heidi Swapp Color Shine splatters and stitched Tim Holtz Tiny Alpha Stickers on each photo.
Now you can take a look at my process video to see how this layout came together.
Thanks so much for joining me today and remember to visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all of the cut files!
