Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop

Well, it's the eighth of the month, which means it's time for the Reverse Confetti Blog Hop!
This month's theme is all about the guys...

The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog
and you should have made it here from the amazing Amy Sheffer's blog
It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. 
We have tons of inspiration for you to see using Reverse Confetti's amazing stamp sets to make projects for the special guys in your life!

Now, the Reverse Confetti DT was challenged to create an "ABC" Masculine project,
which stands for "Anything But a Card."
I decided to scrapbook the photos I took at my son's black belt review last November.

Reverse Confetti June Blog Hop Leigh Penner @leigh148 @reverseconfetti @bazzillbasics #reverseconfetti #bazzillbasics #scrapbookinglayouts

I started with a base of Bazzill Basics Classic Smooth White cardstock
and added some Echo Park (red) and Crate Paper (map) patterned papers over top.

For my title, I used Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge Printed Transparent Alphas.
For my embellishments, I chose some Crate Paper chipboard frames and added
some Reverse Confetti stamping to them.
For this one (above) I stamped the sentiment from Circle Sentiments in two different colours.

On the other frame, I stamped my sentiment (from Right Here, Right Now)
in versafine onyx black onto vellum and heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I layered it over the photo, but under the frame.
For the little banner on the left-hand side, I stamped the sentiment
 (also from Circle Sentiments) and diecut the end using
the smaller tag from Tag Me Confetti Cuts.

I hope you’ve enjoyed hopping with us today!
