CHA - New Release Pt. II

After we introduced you previously to the soft beauty of {Bebe} let us move on to the more masculine world of {Man About Town}.

The papers invite you to create projects about the men in your life but work just as wonderful for heritage layouts. The 4 x 4 stamp set has one of the coolest journaling spots and the swirls are perfect for custom made borders or corners.

As for the rub ons - well you can never go wrong with the colour combination of brown, green and blue. There is just something about it, that makes it pop off the page!

P.S. - Did you know that when you click onto the smaller thumbnails on each of the papers from the {Man About Town} line that they will open up bigger in a new window? Check it out and see the designs in more detail..awesome!

You can have look {here} and {here} to see what our Design Team Members Michele and Katrina created using this fabulous line.


If you would like to get you name entered for a chance to win our CHA prize pack, let us know in the comments section how you would use the {Man About Time} line? Do the rich colours inspire you to create masculine projects, or would you rather use them for something totally different? We would love to hear your ideas!

Wowowowowow I love this line it's perfect especially for someone luck me I have 5 boys to scrap and what a perfect line to do it with.

Melissa said...

Wow, I just keep getting more and more inspired each day! I can see using this on a page for my son(I seem to gravitate toward these colors anyhow, but when they're all bundled up in a nice little line it's even better!

I might also use the papers and some of the other things for other projects that aren't "man" related, everything is really versatile!

Amanda Muirhead said...

just gorgeous..I'm lovin all the new journaling stamps! right up my alley :D

Love the colors in this line, they are so manly but can also be used for girl pages too! I would love to use this line for some baby pictures of my nephew. :)

Audrey said...

Well, I will definitely use them for my boys but equally, they make a good alternative for scrapping my Xmas photos too. It so happened that my boys were wearing blue pjs and the Xmas paper were blue as well. Hence the traditional red and green just doesn't match. However, this line would! :)

karlynn said...

LOVE THIS LINE!!!!!
other than my husband. i would soooo love to use these for gift and for WONDERFUL cards!!!!!

Lorraine said...

This line is just the right colors for home accents as well as all my boy/masculine scrapbook pages. They are earthy and beautiful, and are perfectly suited to the colors already in my home.

Beautiful! yet perfect for the men in my life.

I love this color combo... I have two girls and tend to purchase in the more girly color family, but forget that they are often photographed with their Dad in the picture too...so these would be awesome to balance out the pages!

They would also work great for outdoor photos too!

scrapandy said...

I looooooove this color combo! While I will probably use it to scrap my brothers or my nephews...I would more likely use it for my book of me! I love using green/blue or blue/brown combos :)


Ooooh, I think it would also look awesome with some of the vintage photos of my grandpa!!

Marielle said...

Loving everything so far, I'm the only chick in the house of 3 boys/man. these papers would be put to good use for sure!!

Spongemom Scrappants said...

How would I use it? Well, with a hubby, four sons, a male dog, and a male cat - I'm so surrounded by testosterone that I'd have no problem using this line at all!!!

Chrys said...

great line! With 3 boys in the house (including dh) this would be a great line to work with!

Tanya said...

I'm always looking for boy themes products, and these are perfect!!! Love the colour combo.

jo said...

Gorgeous line!! would look great with photos of my 2 boys who are growing so quickly!

M said...

Love this line! My scrapping seems to gravitate toward masculine anyway, and this line would be great to scrap some of my and my husband's shooting and hunting pics. A nice break from the usual camo and woods papers.

Cindy said...

Love the new sneaks. All the M.A.T. products would be perfect for a book for my honey. We do have an anniversary coming up.... I'm just saying... :-D

dstandard said...

Wow can't wait to get my hands on these!

Joli said...

I would use the man about the town line for some fun Spring pages.

I am totally in love with the journaling stamps!

cottagerca said...

The first time I layed eye on Man about Time, my heart skipped a beat! Love the blue brown combo! I am house of 3 males, so I definitely will be using the papers to capture the men in my life. Since laying eyes on this line, I have noticed many variations of this color combo. You are on the right direction for the future.

scrappygirl said...

Oh these are definately my colours! I tend to always use this colour scheme. I would for sure use them on all of our outdoor adventure pages--ie, hiking, camping, fishing etc.

Lizzy Simpson said...

The colour combination for this line of paper is one of my favourites - blue and green and brown - fabulous!!! I can see using this line for heritage layouts of my Great-Grandfather and my step-dad, and also for cards for my DH, FIL, and brother. The patterns are stunning, and the whole line screams at me "buy me and use me lots!!"

Trace Geworsky said...

I only have a son too, but i would use this to create a mini album about how much my dad means to me.

Valerie G said...

I love these colors together and the papers are gorgeous! I so cloud see myself using these papers to scrapbook about my husband or make cards to send him while he's out on the boat for 6+months. Also I think they would work really well with the pages I'd like to do on my wedding. They would match so well!

kyopuce said...

Kiss from France !!

strahli said...

This line is amazing! I love it because it is suitable for many things, not only for 'man' related stuff. I would even use it for my wedding pages :)

Kind regards from Germany

Jo said...

These are just gorgeous! I have 2 little boys and one not so little boy in the house and these would be perfect for them!

Staci Compher said...

i think they do seem very guyish colors which is nice....but I also get a a fall feel for the color combo....

Margo said...

As a mom of two boys, this line is perfect to scrap all of my everyday photos of my guys!!
The green also looks like it matches the colour of my walls!!

Jodee said...

I really like this. It would be good to use for LO's about my hubby and his friends!

Sandie said...

LOVE these. As someone with no girls... only boys... I can always use collections like this. What else would I use them for? My ocean pics. The colours just beg to be used for those pics. Awesome!

liannallama said...

oh, I think the color scheme would be wonderful for some of my Tahiti vacation photos! The turquoise water would look so pretty against the dark colors!

Debby said...

I love this line. This will work great for all my guys in my family. I also saw immediately I could do some heritage pages for the men in my family. This is really great. I'm hope your CHA release goes great.

Reg said...

I am loving this line! I would use it for the 16th Anniversary Album I am about to start working on for my husband! He is such a manly man and I have a hard time finding items to use, but this is perfect!!

Frauke said...

I love the colors of this line, not only for pages of my husband, sons or grandson. I guess, it also will fit my old houses layouts.

Delia W said...

Thanks for the chance to win.

I get a heritage feeling from them.. but as I most scrap either about my man or myself, Im thinking walking/ hiking day trips will be really good with these.

Morag said...

LOL! No problem for inspiration here - I have six nephews! The majority of my photos call for masculine paper and then when I am not scrapping then it is travel photos which again do better with warm neutrals and a dash of colour! So this paper paper line when it becomes available over here in Europe will certainly meet numerous needs!

Jane said...

I love these colors and can't wait to see the full line! I can see using this line for outdoors, nature, sports, travel - lots of possibilities!!

Meda said...

Are you kidding? With all those swirls and lovely fonts I would definitely make a girly card even for the man in my life :)

Beth Warren said...

I like the colors for scrapping about my brother and father. Might also be useful for travel-themed pages.

CJandErik said...

I have boys, so I use lots of rich colors for masculine LOs, but I get so used to those colors I use them for everything. I love this line.

~Day~ said...

These colors could be used with almost anything! I could see summer or winter pages with them, and the colors work with both boys and girls! A wonderful versatile line!

LisaW said...

This line is gorgeous! Brown and blue is my favourite colour combo. Whilst the papers are masculine in colour, they look very versatile. I can see myself completing heritage layouts as well as girlie pages...how about a retirement, winter pages or baptism...so many options.

Melissa said...

YES totally for all the guys in my life! (hehehe)

Jodi said...

I would use this line for my husband and my nephews. Gorgeous!

silvia said...

I would use this line to create a mini album for my husband. It would be a "guys" book as we have 2 sons.

Parker and Emma's Mom said...

For projects other than boy I think they would be great for sympathy or other classic looking cards.

Amanda said...

I have a spunky young son, a wonderful hubby, two crazy nephews, and of course my hero dad. That's how I will use the man about town collection!
