All About Boys Blog Hop

Welcome to the "All About Boys" blog hop.  If you've landed here after visiting Mindy E, you're in the right place.  However, if you've just stumbled across my blog but would like to see all the projects created for this hop, please go to Mindy's Blog and start off there.

As a mother of 3 boys (and 1 girl), you would think that crafting for a boy or with a boy in mind would come easy, but NO! It took me almost a week to come up with a boy-themed project.  Here is what I came up with....

Main Ingredients:
Stampin' Up's Watercolor pencils, RavenHead Manor Scrapbook Paper Pad by Recollections, "Tuxedo Black" ink by Memento, Roll Call Stamp set (and the "Edward" single stamp) from The Greeting Farm (I wasn't sure which one I was going to end up using so I took a pic with both), ProvoCrafts "Just Because Cards" cartridge and my Cricut Expression


Using the ink, stamp your image onto quality white paper, if you choose to use blender pens the water could weaken the paper & it will rip.  Color in & cut out your image.  Cut ou the "Cute as a bug" saying from page 48 of the Just Because handbook. Use the "word" function and cut at 3".

Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to pop on over to
