True Gentleman Masculine Scrapbook Pages

I wanted to share these masculine scrapbook pages as we near the very end of the Stampin' Up! Retiring List.  These are the scrapbook pages we made in May during my scrapbook club in San Antonio.  If you are a scrapbooker in San Antonio--a beginner or a veteran--come check us out for a meeting with no obligation.  Full details of my scrapbook club in San Antonio are here.

Okay, on to the masculine scrapbook pages themselves.  Although these would work great for Father's Day in June, they also go beyond that.  I like to produce pages in my scrapbook club in San Antonio that are ready use.  Simply pop in photos to complete as they are usable for a wide variety of occasions.  You can easily add a bit of customization or use your journaling pieces to tell your story.  Done is the way I like scrapbooking!  My club members walk out the door with FINISHED pages!  

Let me share just a few highlights of these masculine scrapbook pages:

  • The color scheme (derived from the lovely--but sold out--True Gentleman Designer Series Paper).  Although the paper uses Chocolate Chip, which is retiring, I've successfully used Early Espresso in this color scheme with Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, and Tranquil Tide.  These are deep, rich colors--perfect for masculine scrapbook pages.
  • 7-1/4 x 5-1/4 photo mats are perfect for 5 x 7 photos or for adding a selection of smaller photos.
  • Tailored Tag Punch makes an awesome brick-like pattern.  I chose Night of Navy Card Stock for my "bricks" to balance the heavily patterned DSP.  Use as many or as few as you like.
  • Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon brings a really nice bit of texture to my pages.  It's on the Retiring List, but still available (for now!).

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  All Stampin' Up! supplies are listed and linked to my online store below for your convenience.  As we are in the Retiring List period (until May 31), product availability is limited as retiring items are “as supplies last”. Shop today to avoid disappointment!
