I am doing a scrapbook for my son who is in the Airforce. I have a lot of photos of him in uniform and in his flight suit standing by an F-16. I need some edgy, masculine type embellishments and paper and am struggling to find something appropriate. Everything seems to be so girly or if for a boy, so babyish. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for looking!

When I go home at lunch I will look and see the name of the company the I got all the DH's Army stuff from they had all branches and it was masculine. I think that you are going to love them, that is if you do not already have them!

Yes, I did see some of their papers. I have used a couple of papers from the 'Boxer' line but thats about all I've been able to find. I was looking for something with some more reds and some airforce blue maybe?! But thanks for the suggestion! I'll take any and all ideas. This has been harder to find than I thought.

How about this...it is Zach's Life by Little yellow Bicycle...Here are some of the papers.

Some companies also have themed stuff if that's what you're looking for, so I found some of those links too.

Good Luck

You could do alot of sanding and distressing....I think that gives things a real masculine feel to stuff....good luck with your project.

K and comany has a lot of military stuff. I go to ebay and type in coast guard scrapbooking to find stuff for my DB. Good luck! I hope you post what you make!

I just finished a "for hire" album for a gentleman that was deployed from the National Guard. I used a bunch of K and Co stuff and stuck with the colors brown, green (all shades),cream, burgandy and navy. Creative Imaginations has some military stuff too.

Do a search here at the superstore for military and a bunch of stuff comes up. I've linked a few.

I used a star punch and some SU! star stamps as well. I'll try and add some of those layouts to my gallery shortly.

Thanks to all of you guys who took the time to respond! This was my first time to try the blog and I really was hoping to just get one person but you guys have overwelmed me with your generosity of ideas. I've been using your suggestions and shopping all day! It should be a great book! Thanks again!
