What paper/packs have you used to scrap pages of boys that are toddler age? I don't want nursery or baby boy stuff and can't seem to find much here.

I am making a book for my friend's son's first 5 years (he's 4 now). I haven't found much by way of boy-themed papers that I liked, so I just use solid, dark and "masculine" colored paper and embellish with stickers of trucks, zoo animals, stars, etc that are easier to find. Since it is about his first 5 years, I have baby boy paper for his baby pictures. It's a darling pack that I got at Tuesday morning for .99. Don't remember the name of it.

My Mind's Eye "Twinkle Twinkle Little Boy is a good one, It has blues and browns with dots, stripes and plaids and lots of stars. Very little boyish, but not so babyish. The pad is marked 2009, but I think I bought mine at HL last year.

I was going to suggest EP as well. I like Note To Self and This and That Charming. Both are masculine lines and not babyish.

Another vote for Echo Park here. I also just ran across a K & Company pad that is called Rough and Tumble which is great for toddlers and pre-kindergarten.

Paper Studio 'Boys and Their Toys,' Echo Park pads, 'Three Bugs in a Rug' collections, DCWV has some and is currently creating more stacks for boys. Those are the ones I use the most.

Echo Park, Fancy Pants, My Mind's Eye, and BoBunny all make great lines for little boys. There are more but these are easily accessible and a great place to start.

I found a great pack called. "Animal Crackers" at joann's on the clearance rack a few months ago n I love it, but i cant remember the brand. I use lots of brights for my toddler boy, n pink when I can, just because its my favorite color.

Ummm...27th...this wouldn't be considered spam would it? (Definitely "just kidding"!)

DCWV has a pad that is Stripes, Dots, and Plaids which I use a lot of for my little man-though there are some pinks in that pad. The coordinating card stock pad has lime green, navy, teal, and red that I also use a lot of. There is also a boy pad at walmart (I forget what their brand is called) that has some great papers with dinosaurs, gears, and bicycles in it.

I scrap my twin grandsons tons. If you look in my gallery, you can see what worked and (lol) what didn't. I've been scrapping the little guys for the last two years and now I have to get use to PINK...they have a baby sister!

I have been using the Me&My Big Ideas Baby Boy paper pack. It has a few babyish prints but most work well on toddler boy pages. I got it at Michael's.

Here are a few to get you started. The trick I have found is to really keep your mind open to ALL collections. Collections I might have dismissed because it looked girly might have a few sheets that are perfect for boys. I have used a brown and cream floral pattern to mix with a stripe pattern on a train page.

Focus on colors you need and keep an open mind. I have two boys if they are out in nature then I will use a floral, butterflies and dragonflies but with masculine paper.

Thanks for asking it gave me a chance to browse the store again!

I can't remember the paper line, but I believe the theme is Rocket Age. Is that October Afternoon?

Ialso use the DCWV All About Boys, bright primary colors, n 2 Crayola page kits I found in Ollies. Stripes n polka dots will work fine too. I just added the animal crackers to my products list below. Love it, esp for the trip to the zoo with a toddler boy!
