Product Focus Week 9: Boy Collections

Welcome to this week's Product Focus." In these weekly blog posts, I'll share a scrapbooking product or product type I'm particularly drawn to, and then share some ways I've used the product in a project. I'll point out tips and tricks for using the product, share some of my favorite products from that product line, and then I'll open it up for any questions you might have. I'd also love to hear your reviews or uses for the product type I focus on each week. This is a chance for you to pull out products you already own and play with them or for you to discover new products you might not yet have tried.

Last week during in my "How To" post, which focused on creating layouts for boys, I had someone ask in the comments sections what collections I would recommend for boy collections. So this week I wanted to focus on a great collection kits for boys. While they're are lots of products I could recommend individually for layouts about boys, you can also find lots of collection kits just for boys.

Here are a few of my favorite boy collection kits (click the photos for links to the products). You can also search by "boy" or "teen" or "dad" at 2Peas to find products perfect for any aged boy:

Below you will find a gallery of projects that use papers and embellishments from boy collections. Hopefully these will give you some new ideas for using collection kits on your layouts.

Idea #1: Create embellishments to match the paper.

Idea #2: Create a scene with stickers.

Idea #3: Create folded elements like paper airplanes.

I'd like to ask here how you are using collection kits for boys on your layouts. Do you try to keep the products to the items within the collection kit or do you prefer to mix and match items? Do you scrapbook for a little boy, teenager, or a grown man? Do you have a collection you particularly love for boys? Care to share it? If you have a question about this post, please leave it within the comments section below. I may just answer some of them in an upcoming "Product Focus" post.


  1. I have two teen age boys. I used to scrap only chronologically but with the extreme amount of photos I take I am sooo behind and there were so many recent photos I wanted to scrap too. So now I jump all over the place depending on what I feel like. This leaves me going back and forth from little boy to less cutesy quite a bit and I like that. I feel like it lets me be more creative.
