PTI April Blog Hop

Morning everybody,
Time for another PTI blog hop. This month's theme is

Boys To Men
This month's blog hop is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives!  Now's your chance to create Father's Day projects, boy birthday cards and more to build up your stash!  Focus on masculine color
schemes, fresh pattern combinations, understated embellishments and unique uses of images you may
already have in your stash!

Yes! I was thrilled to see the masculine theme. Making masculine cards is always a challenge for me. So I love it whenever the opportunity arrives. Here are a couple of Masculine themed projects I had made for the blog hop.
First up is a frame for my son's desk using some masculine stamp sets and papers I have in my stash.


Pattern papers from Webster Pages, stamps from Papertrey Ink, Stampin' Up!, Inkadinkado and Kaisercraft. Twine from Twinery, stickers from Echo Park Me Mine stickers.

Next up! is a Card



Cardstocks, pattern paper, lunch box die,postmark and sentiment stamps are from Papertrey Ink, Black and White Striped pattern paper is from Crate Paper, Circle stamp is from Inkadinkado, clef die is from MTF.

Hope you enjoyed all my projects. Now I am off to see other inspirations and take notes :)

Happy Hopping!
