    This is such a gorgeous new line…I’d love to win the chance to use it! when I’m making a more masculine piece I tend to use earthy colors, more distressing, less flourishes and bolder accents.

    Yummy papers!!! As others, grunging, distressing, the use of colour – I even use flowers on my teenage boy and even DH LO’s, but of course they are neither pink nor girly ones ;p Fun, funky or modern clean design, geometric shapes all work for me.

    I love this designer. I usually use more primary colors, less cursive-y fonts, and fewer embellishments overall in my masculine layouts.

    I’ll pretty much distress, add texture (think burlap, corduroy, etc), use ties in lieu of bows. Thanx for the inspiration and blog candy opp!

    When I want to make a layout masculine I use subtle colors and lots of distressing. I use less flowers and more like metal embellishments.

    Just love this new Graphic 45 paper! I use buttons and metal and grunge. These new papers are more manly than boyish and will be perfect for layouts involving my grown son.

    I usually stick to a blue and brown color palette and distress.

    I use lots of stripped papers with solid colors in navy, brown, and dark green. I also keep fonts clean. Squares and rectangles are my friends.

    I love to use Tim Holtz metal embellishments, gears and spinners on them! I adore this line from Graphic 45 and can’t wait to make a Father’s Day album with them and some cards!

    I usually use colors that are boyish – blues, yellows, greens, browns. I tend to distress them more, ink them, etc. I like to use stars and when I use flowers, I will cut them so the petals are square. Metal embellishments are used often, too.

    I usually choose blue and brown pp to match with the boyish theme, distressing and do with anything rugged look. Sometimes i do use flowers, but will limit them..

    Nice papers! I try distressing the page and using darker colors for a more masculine look.

    I don’t use bold colors I usually go for a darker color paper for the background, lots of inking on the edges, crazy colored paper that is torn on the edges so the total paper looks like a strong masculine man did the work!

    I love Graphic 45! To keep my projects more masculine, I leave off the flowers and laces and substitute with twine and metal embellishments.

    I add pictures of men, of course! All kidding aside, in an all male household, but me, I’ve welcomed any color and or embellishments onto my manly pages. Yet, this line totally rocks my world!! I have all kinds of page and project ideas stirring in my head!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I use lots of ink and tearing, and am not even afraid to use a few flowers here and there!

  25. January 5th, 2010Posted | Permalink

    I have been known to use rhinestones on my manly pages. I like more ink and I love cardboard! Grunge it up!!

    Wow – that is an AWESOME giveaway. Thanks for the chance, love G45.

    All my pages are masculine. i am not a frilly kind of girl really.
    i love using distress techniques; perhaps that would be considered masculine.. i consider it perfection!!! LOL
    Now mind you masculine is really a frame of mind wouldn’t you think. most of my pages are about me and my… whether that be my other half, my flowers, my family , my friends… we aren’t all masculine persay but we are strong.. does that make sense.. in my head it does!!
    anyway, whether i win or not i will definitely be buying some of this line. i love love love it!!

    Another fab line from Graphic 45. They know how to do pattern paper right! The style, the colors can not be beat!

    I don’t know that I do anything very “feminine” since I love distressing everything in sight – followed closely by a passion for things “vintage”. The memory book I made my husband a few months ago, though, did include more “hardware” embellishing, more newsprint-type backgrounds.

    I love this papers old fashion-vintage look, for me it’s a little difficult to find this kind of papers and specially Graphic45

    Well, happy new year! and thank you

    This is a very classy line! When doing male layouts or cards I use rich colors like burgundy and midnight blue and moss green. Leaves instead of flowers yet they don’t have to be rough looking. does that make sense?? lol

    There is not enough “man” things on the market! This looks wonderful! To make a card more masculine, I use blue and black, dark browns and beige. I also use things like bronze or black brads and buttons.

    I love anything Graphic 45..and would love to win some goodies from this new line.
    When working on anything masculine…I use dark colors..and distressing.

    I’m a big fan of Graphic 45 paper and love this new Proper Gentleman line. My husband is a retired police officer and now spends more time doing his favorite activities – watching sports (Go Broncos!), golf, Cowboy Action shooting, and other non-frilly things. I use a lot of outdoorsy papers and design features and do ripping, tearing, and inking of papers to get the “nature” look for the pages with him and his activities. We’ve also visited Hawaii many times, where he loves to golf, so I have pulled in that tropical theme for many pages…palm trees and golf just go together! 🙂

    I use dark colors and sometimes i treat the papers to make the look older. I also add stripes to the paper sometimes

    Graphic45 papers are wonderful and most of their earlier lines work really well for a masculine look, especially the reverse sides of the papers. Don’t forget the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink–that helps too.

    For my more masculilne pages I tend to use more muted colors and embellish with twill ribbon, buttons, and chipboard. I also like to paint, distress, and use torn edges on these pages

    I can’t wait to see this line in pesron! I just live the colors.

    I really like this paper!! I like the vintage look of it and love making cards…can never find good manly paper to make cards with. This will be perfect!!

  46. January 5th, 2010Posted | Permalink

    For masculine cards, i use masculine colors, stitching, anything that suggests tailoring, and embellishments that don’t go to the feminine side.

    I usually add some masculine embellishments – like washers, string, twine,buttons, mesh, brads that resemble screws and lots and lots of distressing.

    I am a huge fan of Graphic 45 and would love the chance to win. Thank you.
