I've put together a few ideas for you for Father's Day - both making cards and scrapping the event, in case it just sneaks past you and all you have is photos and a desire to at least record those :)
And to make things a little easier, I have some guy kits on sale for the rest of the week. We can do this!
First the inspiration:
Card ideas - choose a masculine kit and create your own scene:
Or choose a photo that is special to you and use word art to create the sentiment:
Masculine Layout Ideas - choose a kit with neutral elements & papers - it doesn't have to be just for guys!
Here's an example of a layout done with a reasonably neutral kit that looks girly at first glance (Miss Mary Mack). There were a lot of dark neutrals included, though, so look for those in the kits in your stash!
Another example using a largely pastel kit - I just kept the neutrals for this layout of my son-in-law and his dog, Leo (kit is Joy Bundle)
This was scrapped using a Christmas kit - I just used the bits I wanted :) (God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen)
If Flowers aren't your jam on a masculine layout, you could substitute geometric shapes or flair in this instance. (Scrapped by Lexy using Life Story - Summer)
Here's a whole list of suggestions to replace flowers on a masculine layout (contributed by readers of my Facebook page):
military ribbons or pins
pleated ribbon flowers
hats or caps
pleated paper circles/medallions
frogs, snakes, lizards
tie tacks or bars
Here's a helpful set of greetings all set to go - make card-making a snap!
