By now, we all know that papercrafting, while largely the realm of those with two X chromosomes, has its share of superstar XYers, too. We love them. Of course, the majority of guys don’t know the difference between pigment ink and dye ink, and for the most part, we love them, too. In fact, over at the Drunken Stampers Crafting Pub, we’re celebrating the testosterone crowd with our challenge this week. That’s right: This one’s for the guys!
My own long-suffering partner, Scott, has adapted with Zen-like peace to my papercrafting obsession. When a box as big as a refrigerator shows up from UPS, he calmly asks if Tim Holtz just released some new products. When our shared office space/studio looks like ground zero of a craft bomb detonation, he patiently tiptoes over the rubble to check his email. He’s awesome, and the cats like him, too.
But, I digress.
My “Guy-Themed” card combines products from three of my personal crafting heroes: The aforementioned Tim Holtz (the watch hands, photo, background paper and ATC diecut and corners), THE Wendy Vecchi (the awesome pocket watch Art Parts) and Suze Weinberg (the UTEE that gives the pocket watch its faux-metallic finish). Oh, and the clock face is a transparency from my box of mystery stuff from somewhere. We all have one of those, right?
Our All About Him Challenge at Drunken Stampers is open through next Friday, April 1, and the girls and I would love to see how YOU celebrate the men in your life!
