Ok, so I know that I'm not the only one who struggles with this so i wanted to as, what is a good masculine collection (more for adults than kids) to get? I love to work with earthy tones but can't seem to find a whole collection with these colors. Any help will be appreciated

CHAP, from American Crafts is my favorite line- it's discontinued and getting harder to find, but the papers are so so great!

And then I guess it can come down to the guy or page you're trying to scrap for- Cosmo Cricket's SOCIAL CLUB had some great papers, October Afternoon's BOARDING PASS is another of my biggest favorites- I love its retro cool travel them. Very very cool.

And of course, Graphic45's A Proper Gentleman.

How about BG's Vagabond or Granola?

OK, I didn't know until my comment posted that they are both discontinued. Oops! I'll keep thinking.

I usually just shop by theme/personality of my subject. For general discussion, this EP collection is fun.

Also great choices! I think this might be fun for late Summer/ autumn.

Oh! You could also go solid kraft with template work or free-form splatter.

I found a great stack recently that I think would be great for masculine pages. I believe it's My Mind's Eye antiqued dots and stripes. I'll look when I get home.

Then there's "The Guy Collection" I linked below.

There is a basic grey line that I love, it is actually just a kraft color line with other neutral accents, but it mixes so well with all colors that I use it on guys pages with earthy cardstocks and inks

I would recommend going vintage. I am going to be starting a scrapbook for a friend and the one thing he said is not military or anything NASA. So I was stuck. Then it hit me vintage, all neutral tones. Also, try creating pages with cool stamps, texture plates and card stock. Good Luck!

I really like to use some Tim Holtz; there's an album made using his papers in my gallery that I think of as "the mini you'd find in Indiana Jones's backpack."

Scribble Scrabble and Scrap Within Reach are excellent for dudes.

Now I want to see Gem's mini! In the mean time, I thought of another chunk of paper.... As a side note, does anyone else end up singing the cheese jingle as they search for k-r-a-f-t?

ohh yeah, the Kraft Funday line! I freakin love every one of those papers AND the embellishments and borders and stamps that came with it- I find myself buying a few sheets of it every time I go to a shop. I have a huge stack of those, now. I really like the chevron kraft funday paper- it is so cool!
