Catching up!!!

Wow!! Finally taking a quick minute to catch up!

I just love the masculine feel of the Dream Street papers in the February Alternate kit at Life Preservers. I’ve really enjoyed working on some teen boy layouts.

I created the tag by placing a rubon over a chipboard piece. I added an eyelet, threaded some floss through the eyelet, and attached to the knot with a safety pin! I used my sizzix die to cut the star from a cereal box. I spayed with Maya Road Mist and dabbed some Black Soot Distress Stickles found in the kit.

To add texture and go with the teen masculine look, I used the sizzix die to cut stars from denim and wire mesh.

Non kit items: Distress Ink, wire mesh, denim, eyelets, jute, snaps, chipboard letters (t & A), and thickers (S), brads,

I created this in an 8x8.

I put the Superstar rubon onto the rough side of a transparency and cut out. I dry brushed a little paint onto the backside to make it stand out a bit against the dark background papers. For the star, I cut the star from a cereal box and lightly covered with the Black Soot Distress Stickles found in the kit. When the stickles were dry I covered with a generous amount of Glossy Accents. After waiting for it to dry, I applied a second light coat of distress stickles. It gave some of the sparkles a bit of a floaty look!

Non kit items: Distress Ink, stitching, brads, cardboard, Making Memories paint, staples, Stampin’Up border punch, EK Success boarder punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder

I think these little faces are the cutest and would make a really fun card! They are rubons found in the kit! I put Glossy Accents over the faces to make them stand out.

Non kit items: Distress Ink, Glossy Accents

The star paper made me think of graduation. Although it seems that spring will never get here, the time will come before we know it!! This card has a little pocket inside just the right size for money or a gift card!

Non kit items: Distress Ink, floss, stitching

Non kit items: Distress Ink, Marker, EK Success border punch, alpha stickers, floss
