Hello everyone! I hope that you are well. I am sharing a scrapbook page which is for an album that I am slowly making for my brother. As a toddler, he was always into cars, trucks etc and loved playing with them all the time. To create this page, I have selected papers from The Vintage Autumn Collection.

To alter the title to have a rugged masculine feel, I used Distress Spray Stain faded jeans and then used Clear Rock Candy. The Clock face was embossed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Midnight Bronze embossing powder. The clock faces were fussy cut Clocks XVI to add to the vintage/masculine feel of the page.

To frame my photo, I used the reverse of XXI and distressed it. I applied some weathered wood distress ink before adding a wall cut out from Wild orchid Crafts. I didn’t alter it any was as I liked it raw.

Even though it’s a masculine page, I still like to add flowers! The flowers help to frame the photo and of course compliment the beautiful papers!

The bottom section features a section of corrugated paper. I have had various colours in my stash for a while now! I used a ruler to tear a section of my papers and then I distressed them with some ink. I used XV as the very base of the page.

Hi! I’m Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.
