Boys VS. Girls in Scrapbooking

I had a little girl first. That’s when I dove head first into the world of scrapbooking. I loved all the adorable papers, and embellishments, flowers, bling, etc. etc. etc. that I could put on her layouts. It was so much fun, and so girly. Since that is how I started doing the more modern style of scrapbooking, I am a little lost when it comes to how to scrapbook for a boy. Does anyone else have this problem?

So, I find that I want to put things on the layouts that maybe aren’t quite appropriate like papers that look boyish enough, but may have a little smidge of pink in them. So, I’m always on the hunt for nice boy papers. As I’ve said before, I also like bright colors, but it’s hard to find cute papers that fit all of that description. Until now. Echo Park has come out with a new line of papers called the Little Boy Collection. I’m in love. It has all the bright, fun papers, and cute embellishments too!

Echo Park definitely lives up to its reputation with this line. Their cardstock stickers include boats, trains, planes, cars and trucks. Perfect for your little boy! They also have cute sticker quotes that say things like, “You will always be my little boy” and “A little dirt never hurt”.

The papers include plaids, stripes, and stars that you will love, but also very unique papers like the road map paper that includes roads intertwined with adorable little cars driving on them. There is something here to fit every little boy.

I love having both a daughter and a son. They are still so little, but I see major differences in their likes and dislikes, their personalities, the way they play, and their emotions. It’s amazing. So, why would we want their albums to look the same too? We don’t! What are your favorite boy themed scrapbooking supplies?
