I’m excited to join the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme is Masculine pages. I thought, what’s more masculine than a plaid flannel shirt and an old pickup truck? The plaid background paper (I’m pretending it’s flannel) is from the new Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper, and the truck is from the Country Livin’ stamp set. I don’t have photos on the page because the birthday for which I made this page hasn’t happened yet. But I have the photo mats ready, so all I have to do is adhere the photos: one 6″ x 4″ and one 4″ square (above the truck.) For now it’s safe and sound in a pocket page in my scrapbook.


Here’s what I made:

Country Livin', Letters for You, by Stampin' Up! scrapbook page Candy Ford #stampcandy

The parts of this page that look white in the photo are actually Very Vanilla. The only Whisper White on the page is on the truck’s headlights.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Very Vanilla card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ (two pieces)
  • Basic Black CS cut to 4-1/2″ x 6-1/2″ (two pieces)

Stamped with the Letters for You stamp set:

  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY in Cherry Cobbler ink onto a scrap of Very Vanilla CS

Stamped with the Country Livin’ stamp set:

  • truck in black Memento ink onto one of the Very Vanilla CS mats

Colored the truck image:

  • truck using Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers
  • grass using Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Markers
  • headlights using a Whisper White Watercolor Pencil

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • truck image

Assembled the scrapbook page:

  • HAPPY glued onto the top left of the page
  • BIRTHDAY glued onto the bottom right of the page
  • Very Vanilla CS pieces glued onto the Basic Black CS pieces, to create mats for 4″ x 6″ photos
  • Basic Black CS pieces glued onto the page
  • truck glued onto one of the Very Vanilla CS pieces
