Scraps of thoughts, photos and art


Doodlebug’s new flocked paper (otherwise known as raised fuzzy stuff, technical term), comes in a bunch of colors, solids and patterns. It has a nice heavy weight to it, but allows easy cutting with scissors, trimmers, punches or die cut machines. It also doesn’t bog down a sewing machine even when stitching to regular cardstock. The colors are vibrant and the patterns are classic. The flocking does stay on the paper with the exception of a little loose fuzz after cutting. The large, solid black area in the upper portion of this page is solid flocked paper, so you can see how it remains solid even after cutting. The butterfly is from Heidi Swapp and is embellished with Stickles from Ranger. The stamps are all from Inque Boutique. The large silver brads have punched solid black flocked circles added to the tops for contrast.  TFL!

Creative Imaginations has a fun take on the aging males out there with their newer Old Guys Rule Collection. Containing witty sticker sayings, die cut chipboard, metal charms and of course patterned paper, the collection just oozes masculinity. Browns and blues are the theme along with “woody” station wagons and surfboards, all reminiscent of the 50’s and 60’s California dude.

The likely target for working with this paper was my DB, but my step-father won out! This great shot of him at Easter taken by my aunt, just seemed to fit. He even dressed to match the papers! How perfecto is that?? Honest, he didn’t do that intentionally, but didn’t hurt the layout at all. 🙂
