Cross Canada Blog Hop: It's All About the Layout

If you're here because you saw me on Durham Daytime yesterday and want instructions to make the banner, click here.

Welcome to another Cross Canada Blog Hop!  This month we're featuring 2-page layouts.  If you came from Carrie's blog, you're on the right track.  Feel free to click on at the bottom of each post until you get back here, or you can literally hop across Canada and start at Michelle's blog.  Now, on to my layout.

Have you seen the gorgeous new Workshop-on-the-Go kits in the new Idea Book?  They're stunning and I particularly enjoyed working with Chantilly.


My monthly scrapbooking club will be making this layout in April.  (If you're not a part of this group, you can still join!)  A lot of them have boys and this kit doesn't say "Perfect boy paper" to me.  I thought they'd appreciate seeing it from a new perspective.  So, I created this layout.


Girly paper, now perfect for my boy!  The backs of those pretty-in-pink papers are beautiful shades of blue, green and yellow.  Here are a couple pictures of the individual pages.



I love the look on Nathaniel's face in that middle photo!  So silly, he is.  Here are a couple shots of the embellishment clusters.


Did you catch that I even used the same sparkles on this layout?  All the same products, just with a masculine twist.


Here's what's all included in the kit.  Click here to check it out on my website and order your very own.

Thanks for popping in.  I'd love to hear what you think of my change up layout.  Now it's time to hop on over Sheri's blog and see what stunning layout she's created for your inspiration.

Happy Creating!

  7. This is a great take on the layout, I never thought of using the flip side for a masculine outlook. Very creative.

  8. Wonderful! I am always trying to "boy" things up and it's great to see that I can with Chantilly. I am wondering what stamp sets you used on this layout, is this the Chantilly Workshop On The Go?
