Styleboard Inspiration >> BOY pages!

 Here is a layout I created using my new Styleboard Collection and this one is all about the BOYS! 

It's no secret that I am a girly girl and my product lines truly reflect that in the colors, feminine touches, vintage florals etc. However I always make an effort to include lots of elements that can be used to scrapbook boys as well. Let's face it, we have 3 boys so I do spend a lot of time creating layouts that have a more masculine theme in addition to the girly ones.

This layout definitely showcases lots of those pieces in the collection that can be used for boy layouts too. For example these cork stickers are perfect for dressing up in a feminine way or for incorporating into a boyish color scheme.

Also these Charcoal Thickers are great because they go with any color scheme – boy or girl.

I've used lots of pieces from the Ephemera Pack in this layout and you can see here that there are a ton that again work for a boy or girl page!

Don't forget that it is ok to use bits of pink on boy layouts too! You can see here that my oldest son was dressed in a pink shirt so it ties in perfectly, BUT even if he wasn't in pink I would still be fine adding in a few of those elements, like the pink hearts or the sticker that says "love" in pink.

Do you find it hard to create masculine pages from collections that are super girly? If so, I hope this inspires you to look at all of the pieces individually and pull out the ones that will work. There are definitely a lot in the Styleboard collection that you can use for both boy and girl scrapbook pages!!

Happy Scrapping!
