My Pink Stamper - Layouts!

So this week, My Pink Designers are supposed to create layouts... Well I don't know how long you have been following my blog, but I have only done one layout and that was for a challenge. I am not a scrapbooker by nature. I LOVE to send my work in the mail to someone else. So this really was a challenge for me. 

Thankfully, someone who follows my blog had asked me to make a series of layouts for her since she liked my style. I agreed and she has been so much fun to work with! 

I feel such a great responsibility because they are the layouts surrounding her wedding. This one that I decided to do for this challenge was for her husband's bachelor party. I am trying to challenge myself to do more manly cards (and apparently layouts) so off I went and I am so thrilled that she loves it! :) The pictures are blurred for her privacy. 

I looked through my stamps and thought that "NOTE-ABLE" from Music Speaks™ was a perfect fit! So I put it right in the middle of the photos. 

Cartridge: Graphically Speaking™ (GREAT for all kinds of cards!) and Gypsy Wanderings™
Embossing Folder: Oh My Crafts Exclusive Everyday Shapes™(Apparently they are out of stock)
Cardstock: Core'dinations Nostalgia pack™
Imaginisce d-stress tool for sanding the edges of the Core'dinations layer (LOVE this tool)
Gem stone on crown: Union Square "Favorite" Brads
Ink: Colorbox in black

Whew! What a recipe list! :) 

Now for some close ups of different areas:

Make sure to hop back to My Pink Stamper to see what she has done, what all of the other Pink Designers have done and also to play along in the challenge! :) 

Have a wonderful rest of your week! :)

By the looks of this I can't believe that you are not a scrapbooker! This is a really wonderful LO! The colors are very masculine, perfect for a bachelor party and I love the way you did the title! The stamp you picked was perfect for the occasion! Very nice LO, especially for someone who claims she is not a scrapbooker!
