An Album for the Men in Your Life

Wishing everyone a very Happy Father's Day (a day late...)! Recently, we put together some wonderful kits that are currently for sale (and this week the entire store is marked down 25%!) and I today I wanted to share photos of our male-inspired album, which was designed by our own resident artist, Donna Marie.

I created one of these albums for my husband and filled it with lots of silly photos of our two boys. Because all of the supplies have been hand-picked for each kit, it took me just over an hour to finish the entire album. How fabulous is that??!!

Page one - See those three cute buttons? It's printed on a piece of cardstock that you only have to punch out and attach with glue! It doesn't get much easier than that! The kit also contains an entire package of black/brown brads. (Lots left over for other projects!)

Page 2-3 also contains a few strips of decorate paper that is part of a 12x12 die cut page. The kit also comes with a package of rhinestones and a package of these darling kraft luggage tags.

Pages 4-5 showcasing some of the beautiful patterns on the Graphic 45 paper that is the foundation of all of the pages.

Pages 6-7 - Love how Donna Marie added brads to the pre-printed "dashing" tag, giving it that little something extra. And these wonderful vintage art pieces are cut from a single piece of 12x12 designer paper.

Pages 8-9 - Confession time...I've never know what to do with the packages of felt that we sell. Now I know! Aren't those self-stick felt strips an amazing addition to these pages? Love it!

Pages 10-11 - Another page showcasing those lovely luggage tags and a great vintage car. My youngest loves the picture of that car...I think it was his favorite part of the album!

Pages 12-13 - How about this beautiful saying about Fathers? This is a rub on that comes from an entire package of Dad-inspired rub ons that is also included with the kit.

Pages 14-15 - Don't these pages remind you of a well tailored pin stripe suit? Truly debonair!

Pages 16-17 - Notice how Donna Marie added big 'ol rhinestones to these two pages. The rhinestone color is the perfect match for a manly album, without bringing in too much girly bling! :-)

Pages 18-19 - Love the black and cream color and pattern of these pages. Stunning when paired with the dark green.

Page 20 - This is a lovely combination of those dark, rich colors and patterns along with the amber shade of rhinestones. Fabulous!

We have just a few kits available for puchase so, if interested, please stop by the store today and get your kit before they're gone!!
