HI Friends and welcome to the Creative Scrapbooker Blog today featuring laser cut shapes. Its Karan Gerber here to host the blog and  I am here to share with you a masculine layout I designed based on the new Laser Cut Frame Sets from 49 and Market with papers from the Bold and Beautiful Collection.

Here is a peek at what I will be creating for you today: Close up images of small boy on a scrapbook layout designed by Karan GerberTo begin with, we will be using two sheets of the whispers paper; a set of the Laser Frame Set #3

We will be using two of the above papers to create our background, one using the reverse image and the second we will be cutting a 5.25” x 10.5” making sure to incorporate the detailed brick in the pattern. When you cut the second sheet, ink the edges with Weathered Wood Distress ink from Ranger.49 and Market Laser Cut Shapes Here is what the frame set looks like opened up, on the back of the cover, there is also photo mats you can cut out. We will be using those as well. I wanted to show you how easy it is to use these laser cut shapes to create gorgeous layers on your projects without even having to add flowers.

Punch out all the laser images from the three sheets, on the reverse of the cover sheet cut out all the images. I inked the edges with Ranger Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Distress ink and some with Vintage Photo Distress ink.Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Cut out the inlay on the one photo frame using your scissors we will be using these as a layer for our photo.  Whisper Collection and Laser Cut Shapes by 49 and MarketAt this point, I decided to use the “Great Outdoors Archival Chipboard from 49 and Market” I gently took apart the chipboard and in some places used my scissors to cut the small ticks attached to the chipboard.

I printed off a photo of my great Nephew Maddox and cut to fit the frame approximately 4.25″ x 4.25″, I printed off two of these. Details of Scrapbook Layout designed by Karan Gerber
I continued to add the laser cut shapes where I thought they would look good for the photo, attaching brads to the clocks. I cut the large clock in half and used a piece on either side of the photo layers.  Building a Scrapbook Layout featuring 49 and Market designed by Karan GerberI laid things out to see how they would look with the photo and I decided to glue things down. I used the small chipboard gears from the Great Outdoors set, inked them with vintage photo distress ink and some with weathered wood distress ink.

And with some inking and distressing, here is my finished layout. I love how it turned out, there is a flower in one of the inlays of the frames, I added some shape to it and set a brad in the center, I dabbed a bit of the Finnabair Art Alchemy Gold wax from Prima Marketing to it as well.
