{Blue Fern Studios} Feminine or Masculine?

So, what's your favorite type of layout to createa feminine layout or a masculine layout? I actually like creating both but with identical triplet girls, I really only get to scrap a masculine page when I focus on hubby. So today, I wanted to show you both a masculine layout and a feminine layout and how I used the Blue Fern Studios chipboard on each. I also have a small surprise at the end of the post too. Let's get started.

An 8 1/2 x 11 Masculine Layout
My hubby just celebrated his 50th birthday. So, a picture of him at his birthday dinner was the perfect photo to scrap. I used the Twiggy Branch chipboard to frame around his layout. After covering it in gesso and spraying with different mists, I just cut it apart and used in various places around his photo. For the title of my page, I used the words "My Guy" which are found in the Mister Stuff chipboard set. I covered the title in black gesso.

An 8 1/2 x 11 Feminine Layout
Last month I shared a few pages from a gift album I created. Today I am sharing yet another page from that album. This photo is all about this precious baby's dress worn on her 1st birthday. So, the perfect chipboard for this layout was the Sweetheart Dress Form chipboard. I covered it in gesso and crackle paint. It's hard to see the "crackle" in the photo but in person it gave a great effect.
