April BOAF Kit Reveal

This April Kit from Birds of a Feather is so fun, and perfect for your boy photos!!I scrapped my son on both of these pages.For the first LO I made, I used Echo Park "All about a boy" papers, curling the strips on the bottom. The wood veneers were so easy to ink using Tim Holtz Distress ink (gathered twigs)!

I started with white cardstock and this gears template from Crafter's Workshop which I bought with the extras. I sprayed it with Glimmer Mists Chalkboard in Mantis, which comes in the kit, and Cornflower and Valencia which are also extras. I stamped the orange dots and blue zig zag on the right using my own stamps. I finished the page off with a machine stitched zigzag  using green, orange and blue thread.

For my 2nd page I also used Echo Park "All about a boy" collection, which was the perfect collection that I've been waiting for, to scrap this photo of my son, when he was just 2 years old.

I used what was left of the wood paper that I cut from my first page, to start this design.  The green paper was masked using the Crafter's Workshop houndstooth template and Mantis Glimmer Mist Chalkboard, which are part of the main kit. I just love the large rick rack which also comes in the main kit. The banners and wheel of numbers are stickers which come in the extras.I used the jute from the kit to go around the number sticker, adding some yarn of my own.

Here's a closer look at the tag.

 I've had a blast working with this kit, and all the fun colors and misting!!Thanks for looking!
