Lori Whitlock Blog Hop: Echo Park Jack & Jill Boy Layout

Hello and welcome to Lori Whitlock's June blog hop!  You should be arriving here from Corri's blog or if you're just joining us you can start from the beginning at Lori's blog.  :)

Today I decided to break into the wonderful Jack & Jill Boy collection that Lori Whitlock designed for Echo Park.  Sometimes it's hard to find really masculine collections perfect for the men in your life, but I think these papers and embellishments completely fit the bill!  

I decided to create a layout documenting my husband's passion for making fine scale models and I turned to two of Lori's cool fonts to create my title.  Lori has so many great font choices which can all be seen HERE (sorted alphabetically).

To finish off the left edge of my page, I used one of Lori's awesome star borders.  I started by duplicating it several times and welding them together to be one continuous long border.  To fill in each star I duplicated my border shape and using the extra one I un-grouped it, leaving just the stars.  I then offset the stars by just a wee bit experimenting until they were large enough, but not too large to see from the front when put behind the border.  That gave me a little extra paper so that I could adhere them to the back of the star border die-cut with a Zig glue pen.

Just to recap, today I used the following cut files available in Lori's shop:
