Boys & Toys Scrapbook Page with ECD!

Hi, it’s Angela and today I want to share with you a fun & easy scrapbook page that can be created with the tag die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. My friend Nicole created this super cute boy layout. It has a waterfall of tags with pictures of her son Caden enjoying his ATV. Let me share with you how she created this great page!

*Die cut out the number of tags for the waterfall, all tags need to be the same length, then score at 1/2” on straight edge
*Apply 6 mm ECD double sided tape to each scored edge and remove the liner and apply the first tag on the page and then line up the next one under the first butting the scored edges next to one another to create a waterfall effect on the page front.
*Continue to add tags the length you want, then the last one can be used as a visible photo mat or to show patterned paper as Nicole did.

*As a finishing touch, die cut hexagon cut from shimmer sheetz were added to the holes in the tags
Embellishing the page:

*Die cut from the new ribbon & jewels die, a metallic element was added at the bottom of the page that looks like a chain

*Using the metallic shimmer sheetz, gears were die cut and added to the page
*Take a toy car and “drive” it through an ink pad to create the tire tracks on the page

*A metallic clip was also die cut and added to the top of the waterfall

*a wooden “boys & toys” was added to the page

For fun, I am adding a photo of what the table looks like when Nicole, Darcy & I get together to create! We have dies, shimmer sheetz, glitter, paper, Big Shots and adhesive everywhere! Call your friends, invite them over and create something together. Scrapbooking is a great way to enjoy  spending time with your friends. And I am always the most creative when I am around creative friends! I hope you give this technique a try!
