I know I haven't posted many little boy pages lately, so hopefully you will think this fun layout totally makes up for that oversight! I got this cool card from one of my downline team, where she had used an Anywhere Glue Stick to attach aluminum foil to cardstock and then run it through the Big Shot with the Houndstooth embossing folder while still wet. Doesn't it look amazing? Love it!
And yeppers, I checked and regular aluminum foil is acid-free and safe for scrapping. So I designed this racing page around that card and took my title cues from the racecar in the Need for Speed stamp set (page 68 in the 2012-13 Catalog).
I love the way the Red Glimmer Paper strip and the foil "chrome" kick the bling level way up on this page, and the addition of the narrow grosgrain ribbon stripes helped echo the theme as well.
I hope you've enjoyed the series of pages I have made showing how I recycled cards and card elements into my scrapbooking. Only three pages left in the 31 Pages in 31 Day summer blog series! And we're going out with a bang, of course! See you tomorrow.
Great page for a boy! And it still has bling and ribbon.

What a great page! LOVE this! That foil trick is so cool - I have some ladies coming over in a few weeks to stamp for fun and I will have to show them this! (I'm not a demo, we just meet once a month and use my supplies so that I can have a reason to buy more :) ).

This is one of my favorite pages. I love the foil technique, and the strip of red glimmer paper behind the letters. Very striking!
