Drag Race Scrapbook Layout with CTMH Urban

Finished a layout this week using the Urban Paper Packet from the current Annual Inspirations Idea Book.

This paper pack is one of the best that I have seen out there for doing masculine layouts - it's got such a variety of patterns and really great colours and doesn't look childish at all.

This is the first layout in my new CTMH Lagoon Chevron Album.  It's been a long time since I bought a post bound album so I used my Hostess Rewards and got it for 50% off.  It is a really nice album, great quality, and the page protectors have the "lay flat" seams so once I have it filled up they will stay flat when opened.  It is nicer than the post bound albums I've seen in the local big box craft store and the price even without the discount is comparable to store prices.

I cut the Gears from the CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge in Whisper & Slate.  The Speech Bubble was cut from the new CTMH Artistry Cricut cartridge, stamped in Saffron Ink with the coordinating stamp from the Hello, Life stamp set and the edges sponged with Desert Sand Ink. I wrote the date with a CTMH Silver Metallic Marker.  I stamped the small tag with the Hello, Life stamp in Peacock then cut it and used it for at bit of journaling and just tucked it off to the side of a photo. 

I added Whisper Thick Twine along the top of the Saffron patterned paper and stapled the ends with CTMH Mini Staples.   The stars are from the Hello, Life stamp set and were stamped with Peacock Ink. 

I designed my page title in the Cricut Design Space App.  I duplicated the shadow layer of the drag car and welded the words Mission & Races to it.  Then I cut out the Drag Car layers and glued the Colonial White shadow layer over the black one to hide it.  The car is cut from Saffron Cardstock and I distressed both pieces with Desert Sand Ink.   
The Drag Car image is from the Cricut Nifty Fifties Cartridge.  The title is from Cricut Everyday Fonts - Big Day

I used a 4x6 Flip Flap on this page to add in a non-related photo from the same day.  

By adding a 4x6 and a 4x4 Flip Flap to this page I was able to just do one 2 page layout for these photos.

You can see the album post showing to the left in this photo,  I've added in a whole pack of page protectors (25) behind this layout so I will be able to get a lot of layouts into this album.
