This is the first scrapbook sketch challenge I’ve done in ages. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed crafting with sketches.


Designer Papers

I love this masculine range from Papermania, it’s called Mr Smith’s Workshop. It’s quite similar in style to Tim Holtz’s papers but at a much lower price point.

Scrapbook Page Title

One of the things I particularly like about the Mr Smith’s Workshop papers is that they include a sheet of lettering. It’s a bit fiddley to cut out individual letters for the scrapbook page title but it’s so worth it to have perfectly co-ordinating alphas.


Embellishments

The Mr Smith’s Workshop includes some brads in a variety of muted shades and two sizes. They are the perfect finishing touch for masculine projects.

This is my first use of my new Sizzix Framelits Tags Die Set. I really like using tags as embellishments. They add a little something to the layout without being feminine or remotely fussy.

I also had a rummage through my stash of metal charms and picked out this clock face charm that I’ve been hoarding.

Despite the masculine feel of the layout I chose this little wooden butterfly. I inked it with my distress ink pad so make it match the colour scheme of the rest of my layout.


Products I’ve Used

Most of the products I’ve used on this layout have long since been discontinued. But I’ll include the images I have for them.
