Instructions:

For the Left Page:

  1. Use the blue and red stripe paper as the background. Cut an 8 1/4”x6 1/4” piece of white cardstock and mat it onto blueberry cardstock, trimming the mat to 1/8”. Mat the large photo on blueberry cardstock, trimming the mat to 1/16”. Glue the matted photo on the left side of the white cardstock mat using a glue stick. Add the large words frame to the smaller photo and trim the photo even with the edges of the frame. Cut a 2” strip of blue and white gingham ribbon and fold it over, then secure the ends under the right side of the frame. Secure the framed photo in the top right corner of the white mat.
  2. Cut apart the vinyl tag into separate words. Ink the edges of all of the words with black; let dry. Cut a 2 1/4” strip of ribbon words and attach it horizontally on blueberry cardstock, trimming the top and bottom of the mat to 1/16” and the left and right sides to 1/4”. Cut a 3” strip of blue and white gingham ribbon and tie a knot in the center. Attach the knot to the left side of the ribbon strip mat with a Glue Dot™. Arrange the matted ribbon strip, vinyl tag word strips and silver star brads throughout the white mat as shown, then secure with a glue stick. Glue the whole mat in the upper center of the background paper.
  3. Punch a 1/8” hole in the left side of one of the frame centers. Journal the year onto white cardstock and attach it on the frame center. Thread the “playful” vinyl tag word strip and the frame center on the ball chain. Add a silver star brad above the large center mat, then loop the ball chain around the brad. Secure the tags on the page using a glue stick.
  4. Cut a 13” strip of ribbon words and lay it horizontally across the page, 1 3/4” up from the bottom. Place the small words frame vertically over the left side of the ribbon words strip. Add foam mounting tape under the ribbon words in the center of the frame to raise the ribbon, then glue down the frame. Wrap the ends of the ribbon around the edges of the paper and secure on the back.
  5. Computer journal onto white cardstock and crop to fit on the page. Mat the journaling onto blueberry cardstock and trim the mat to 1/8”. Glue the matted journaling over the ribbon words on the bottom of the page.

For the Right Page:

  1. Use the red scratches paper as the background. Attach the gingham frame over one photo, trimming the photo even with the sides of the frame. Mat the other photo on blueberry cardstock, then trim the mat to 1/16”. Mat again on white cardstock, then trim the mat to 1/4”. Arrange the photos on the background paper as shown, then secure with a glue stick.
  2. Cut a 13” strip of ribbon words and lay it horizontally across the page, 1 3/4” up from the bottom. Place the small blue frame horizontally over the right side of the ribbon words strip. Add foam mounting tape under the ribbon words in the center of the frame to raise the ribbon, the glue down the frame. Wrap the ends of the ribbon around the edges of the paper and secure on the back.
  3. Add a silver star brad to the front of the pocket, then attach the pocket over the left end of the ribbon words strip. Arrange the vinyl tag words as shown and secure with a glue stick. Cut a 3” strip of blue and white gingham ribbon and attach it to the “trouble” vinyl tag using a Glue Dot™. Add a silver star brad just above the upper left corner of the gingham framed photo.

A Tip From Susan:
Any mother of boys knows that sometimes it can be difficult to find great papers and embellishments for boy-themed pages. That’s why I love Attachments™ –they’re so versatile! You can use the vinyl tags whole or cut them apart, or even make fun “buckles” out of the small frames by adding them to strips of ribbon. The pockets are a great place to store trinkets, display journaling, or hide secret messages! My favorite part–these boy-themed Attachments™ are so easy to put together on a layout because they’re already coordinated with the same words and color scheme on every embellishment!
