Yes, I know I can use papers like Enchanted (black and white) but I really want authentic Valentine paper for a special mini and I want something like green or blue or even orange! If all else fails I will just use stamps but there should be something out there! Right?

Le Romantique by Graphic 45.

It's even more divine in person.

Thanks Melissa, Graphic 45 is beyond gorgeous but this is for the husband and I really wanted hearts and all the rest of the Valentine symbols just not in pink! Can't someone do cute in another color?

Two Scoops from Basic Grey (if you can find it) has some cupid (cupids and bows & arrows) and heart things. Along with pinks it has some great greens & blues.
You can't see it from these little pictures but the theme is very urban/distressed not frilly. There is a very cute cupid pattern paper and I loved the chipboard bows & arrows along with several hearts.

Thanks, like it, don't love it but would buy it IF it was still available. Anyone out there have any other ideas? Many thanks in advance :-)

What about Fancy Pants Love Story or Love Birds? There is pink and red in both collections but a lot of other colors as well

Thanks - like the love bird collection but again it's discontinued. Am I alone in my quest? There has to be another boyfriend/husband who dislikes pink and girly! My ideal paper stack would be dark green and orange and have cupid wearing a baseball hat! That the husband would love!!

I know you said you don't want to make your own paper, but what about just using papers with generic patterns (ie. stripes, polka dots, plaids, etc) in the colors of your choice. Then embellish the layout with valentine's day chipboards like hearts, cupids, etc which you can dress up in colors you/he like(s).

I know I am being a difficult but it amazes me that not one company makes a really masculine Valentine paper line. Do you hear me Tim?

HL had a bunch with candy hearts in the back ground. White with red hearts or white with little cupids.

Or as Mama2thomas suggested make you're own. Stamp papers and color them in or get die cuts or punch out a bunch of shapes and sprinkle them randomly before gluing down
