Hey boy paper pad review
Afternoon fellow crafter's hope your all well?
Today I thought I would share with you all my thoughts on the Basic Grey 'Hey boy' 6x6 paper pad I was sent in my crafting product bundle from onestopcraftshop.
To start with I can say this is one of the good bargin paper pads that are out their for sale right now,
with 36 6x6 sheets in total there is a really good mix of funky and reto themed papers this pad can work for them hard to make male and boy themed projects with no trouble at all.
The paper stock is a nice weight and another major bonus is that the pad contains plain soild coloured sheets that match prefectly with the patterened designs.
The designs themself feature themes like music,trains,bingo and other patterns like dots, lined paper effects and wood grain making this ideal to work with any project you have in mind.
I used some of the papers to make my the design below which I had my Dad in mind when I made it.....

For my card design I used the nice brown toned grid effect paper to mat and layer onto Papermania orange card stock, added little faux stitching and then took one of the matching soild coloured papers from the pad and run it though my embossing machine. As you can see it gave a nice deep emboss and took  the distress ink with no problem. I then used some twine to add a bit of textured, them matted a border on top with the brown grid paper and added a few nail effect chipboard shapes from the 'Hey boy' chipboard set.

I them used a Papermania stamp set called 'Heritage press' to make the suit and tie by using the papers to stamp on and then layed them up I found a pocket watch charm in my stash and some chain and added this for some more detail. I had the idea to turn the suit into a pocket after I saw a topper in the 'Hey you' snippets booklet that had 'list' wrote on top. Thought this would be good to write the things that are great about the man the card was made for. My Dad.
I found some nice matching messages in the 'Hey boy' cardstock/transparenices pack that works so good with the whole 'Hey boy' range.
I added few finshining touches with the button, ribbon and little white pen dots.
Hope you all like my card design and look foward to reading your thoughts.
All the products i have used to make my card can be found now for sale on the onestopcraftshop  site
Thank you for stopping by
