Fathers Day Layout for Petaloo

Psst! Be sure to go over to the Petaloo blog for your chance to win a fab prize pack and take a gander at the other goodies during the blog hop with Quick Quotes!

On to my handsome fellas.

These are my two "cute as a button" son and my hubby.


The sentiment on that Calypso Chipboard Die Cut is a very accurate motto for our family. "Be silly. Be honest. Be kind." As long as those rules are strictly adhered to, I will pretend that the winks and smiles work.


I'm really happy with this 8" layout using Calypso papers, and Petaloo's Textured Ivory Elements. It's vibrant and full of fun and a bit rough around the edges... just like us :) And it's not too feminine to send to the Sr. troublemaker (Grampa, aka Nono) for Father's Day.

  1. I love your layout of the frame. I have 3 more family quilts to make then I want to try my hand at paper crafts....just do not have the monies needed to purchase cutter and things I need

  2. What a great card Nichola! Love the smiles and winks!")

  3. Lisa Smith! Don't ever let anyone tell you you need fancy things for papercrafting! You DO NOT need cutters or anything expensive. Speciality tools are fun and nifty to use, but absolutely not necessary. P.S. I'm jealous of your quilting! I love quilts <3
