LOs using Paper Loft's 'Dude' collection

Here are my first three LOs for Scotty Crafts. I was given papers from Paper loft's 'Dude' collection to work with. The colour scheme is amazing for autumn photos and perfectly matched some recent photos that I had of Benji playing in the garden in the autumn the leaves. I couldn't decide which to use on my Outdoorsy Boy LO so I chose a grid design, printed wallet size photos and used them all! A little bit of Tim Holtz distress ink (I can't live without this stuff) and some tags and bling completed the LO.
Although this range is designed for boys the colours match really well with any sepia coloured photo. In my second LO I used photos of Natalie blowing out her 13th birthday candles. the lace and ribbon combined with some bling and flowers made a very feminine LO. I cut the large circle using different sized plates. I crumpled it, flattened it out, sanded over the creases and swiped it with distress ink. Before I adhered it to my LO I ironed it flat.
Fir my third LO I took a favourite shot of Benji ith his teddy and two wallet prints left over from my first LO. I used a fiskars boarder punch to make the ribbon border and adhered the pleated lace border with staples. The word tags are also part of the Dude range.
You will be able to see these LO's and the one that I am currently working on at the store next week.
