Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

Hi Friends and welcome to the   Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. It is Karan Gerber here on the blog today with a school layout featuring 49 and Market. When I was thinking about what I wanted to create for you, I thought of the days when my boys went to school. It seems like so long ago.  We are in the month of June and I am sure many of you will be looking for ideas for your school photos. so I have created a masculine school layout using the Mini Old School Collection from 49 and Market.

School Layout designed by Karan Gerber featuring 49 and Marketing Off the Grid Collection
Materials Used: 49 and Market Old School Mini Collection: Memory Archival Chipboard; Jute Cording; Ranger Distress Inks; Prima Stencil, Tim Holtz Gears;

To begin with, I am using a photo of my oldest son from 2013, this is his Grade 12 photo which measures 3.5 x 5, I cut 4 photo mats from other papers in this collection begins with a 3.75 x 5.75 and each photo mat was 1/4 inch larger than the last, I used Off the Grid as my main background paper, using the  reverse side.Off the Grid Collection by 59 and Market
I wanted to add some texture using a couple of stencils. The first one I used was Woven stencil from Prima Marketing, and I used Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink to do that.  I also used Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Speckles along with Ranger Weathered Wood Distress Ink on that. I also decided I wanted to stamp some of 49 and Markets Pascales Equation image randomly using Ranger Black Archival Ink. Here is what it looks like.Prima Marketing and Stampers Anonymous Stencils I then used the laser cut sheet from the Old School Collection and inked the edges of some of the elements I wanted to use tucking them in behind the layers from my photo mats; I used the photo frames on the photo and cut the smaller one in half inking it and using it as a tucked layer on either side of my photo.

I cut the clock in half using it on either side of my photo, colored the cog border with a blend of vintage photo and weathered wood distress ink to blend in with my colors, I topped this off with some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Metal Gears for added dimension and detail.Details of a School layout featuring 49 and Marketing Off the Grid Collection designed by Karan Gerber  I colored the Memory title with vintage photo distress ink and popped this on one of the book layers at the top of the photo mats. I used the laser clock image here too, perfect detail for this masculine page. I think I might actually add some gold wax to this later on.  School Layout MEMORY title featuring 49 and Market Off the Grid Collection It’s not shown in this photo but in the final image, you can see in the first image, that I wrapped some Jute Cording around my photo layers and just tied in a knot.
I wanted those layers to look like years of report cards behind Elijah’s photo; I used one of the manufacture strips from one of the papers and cut it down to fit the photo mats, it adds a nice detail.
I added in some bubbles for the extra dimension.  Details of School Layout - bubbles by 49 and MarketI hope I have inspired you to think about scrapping those school photos of your little ones ( or even bigger ones) I still have school photos to scrapbook so I really enjoyed putting this together for you!

Until next time,

Happy Scrapping!!
