Masculine travel page

I’ve got photos of a vacation we took to California. I’m putting these pages in each of my kids albums. So I have similar photos that are being scrapped in differing styles. This one goes in my then-16 year old son’s album. While I don’t believe that guys automatically shun flowers and sparkle, it is true that my son tends to the simpler, less flashy elements. So for this I can stay with a traditional “masculine” style. Honestly scrapbooking really doesn’t hold any interest for him so I could sticker sneeze on it and he wouldn’t care. However, perhaps someday these albums will mean something to him, or perhaps to someone else he loves, and so I continue.

Elements for this page were inspired by

  1. Shimelle’s repeating stamps challenge
  2. and of course the SCT’s 3pm challenge of going masculine

For the repeat stamping, I did cut out stamped elements (the globe) but I went a little further. I used the text, which is a separate stamp, from each globe and repeat stamped that directly on each photo. I liked the texture it added to the photo.

All supplies are from the Shimelle True Stories collection.

Try stamping straight on your photos (as long as they aren’t one-and-onlys).
