Hello my dear crafty friends!
This is Irit here today and this is my True story layout story.
Usually it's pretty hard to make masculine layouts. You can't add too many embellishments; you can't add to many rhinestones, glitter, bling or anything sparkle. The colors are pretty much mute and monochromatic and finally our men don't like to be on that side of a camera.
So when I have good photos of my husband for already 32 years, I scrap it . But if this photo fits the most gorgeous Paper House Productions Old World paper pad patterns, I am more than happy with it.
This photo I took on our Cyprus short cruise vacation just screamed " scrap me" with those old window paper. To make it more interesting used distress ink with a stencil over the paper to imitate the old stone wall (kind of it at least) and then the only products that are not PHP are my mixed title made with a part of die cut tag and a few letter stickers.
It's so fun and easy to make great pages with our PHP loads of stickers of every possible kind!

Step by step instructions:
1. Cut the window paper into two piece. The left strip should be cut as a brick wall pattern. The inside should be cut into 8*8'' piece. Make the stone pattern with a stencil and brown distress ink and then glue the 8*8'' paper over the basic green one.
2.Glue the photo under the window and add cut out tag and letters title as shown.
3. Add all possible stickers around the page as shown. Hand write your journalling over the chalkboard sticker and glue it near the photo.
