{ Blog candy }

***I am making this post "sticky" so it will stay on top until Sunday. Please read below for any new posts. Thanks.*** It's blog candy time!!! This time I am giving away some "blue" baby/boy goodies just because I am having a boy. I had to add the flowers because they matched perfectly with the paper and ribbon. You can always fit the flowers somewhere on a card. I am on a lookout for boy paper. Leave a comment on this post and tell me what boy papers I need to check out or your favorite boy color combinations. I will randomly draw a winner Sunday night, September 23, at 8:00 pm CST. Frances Meyer patterned paper, Offray ribbon, Hamton Art clear stamps from Michaels and two acrylic blocks, Prima flowers.

Hi, and congrats on your little fella -in-the-making!! :) I really like SU's current boy paper in their Simply Scrappin' kit. Very cute kit. :)

Mandiannie said...

Congrats on the baby soon to come. Blue and white and even tan look great with boy pages. Only done digital ones, but I find that blue is the best color to work with.

Betty said...

I like the combos of yellow/blue or red/yellow/blue/white or red/green/blue/white. BTW, I also like these for girls. Maybe it's because I have 5 brothers and never was a "pink" person. Thanks for the chance to play along!

We just had a wonderful pink addition to our family...first grandchild too, made it even sweeter... tee hee! I found a wonderful array of papers (either boy or girl orientated) at Michaels. If there is one nearby you should take a peek. And who doesn't love a trip to the craft store for any reason...LOL

Congrats on the blue news....

Basic grey has some really cute boy papers as well as K&co...love them too! Thanks, Lisa K

JokeBK said...

Hi Daniela, I like American Craft for boys very much. Also like orange colours for a boy. But maybe for such a sweet little baby you want more soft colours, such as Basic Grey.
Well, I think you know more about papers than anyone else. Wish you all the best.

jodene said...

Congrats to your soon to be new addition. My brother and his wife are expecting so this maybe perfect. Thanks for the chance!

Rae said...

Hi Daniela ~ once again, congratulations on your bundle of 'boy' joy!! For baby boy cards I like to use colors/papers that remind me of vintage toys that you'd find in grandma's attic :)... like those from Daisy D's "Chasing Butterflies" Collection. I also recently used some papers from MME's "Tres Jolie" Collection (the baby boy plaid paired with chocolately brown) enjoy your search for the perfect papers :) rae

scfranson said...

Congratulations! You have a wonderful blog. You should check out the awesome papers that Melissa Frances has.

Lilian said...

how did you know that three of my girlfriends are having baby boys in the next couple months?? ;)

my favorite combination for boys is barely banana, certainly celery, and light blue.

thanks for sharing! :)

Robyn said...

My favourite combination for boy cards is navy blue, light blue and white.
Congrats to you hope all goes well.
Thanks for the chance.

Jennifer said...

Congratulations! My fave combo of boy colors are going to have to be Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue and Tempting Turquoise. With the giraffe from Bundle of Joy stamped on Whisper White CS.

Linda SS said...

Hot off the Press has a cute book of paper called Boys: Baby & Toddler. Congrats on the wonderful news that you are expecting a bouncing BOY:)

Natalie said...

Just wanted to say congrats. It seems like just a little bit ago you were excited about getting married. Now you married and having a baby.

Tanja said...

target carries some great papers and sadly, I cannot remember the name of the company. Check out the scrapbook aisle!

Ijsbeer said...

Congrats on the baby boy! I love the counter on the top of your blog:) It makes me smile each time I visit.

My favorite colour combo is baby blue and white:) Although if I ever have one I'll probably be tempted to dress him up in black. hehe.

Natalie said...

Congratulations! Babies are so wonderful! For my son's baby scrapbook, I've been using every shade of blue I can get my hands on. I really love how dark navy blue pops with light blue and lime green -- but really every shade of blue is my favorite with sprinklings of grass or lime green. How fun! :)

Nienke said...

Congratulations with expecting a little boy. I love soft colors for little boys and when they grow up I would dress them in jeans and orange or green.
I don't know very much about brands, sorry.
Have a nice pregnancy.

doverdi said...

Congrats on your news of having a baby boy! They are so much fun. My 'baby' boy is now 21 but my niece recently had her second son in May. I still love how Navy & Red look for boy pages & maybe add in a lighter blue shade too. I have found that I like K & Company & American Traditions for boy papers.

Scrappermania said...

Felicidades Daniela por el bebe!
A mi en lo particular, me encanta el azul-blanco y verde limon-amarillo.

Brenmarie said...

I'd advice you to check out Heidi Grace boy papers. I just love her pages. Who said that you can't use flowers on little boy pages?:P You never know how cute they look until you try them.

Marlou said...

beautiful papers, very kind blog candy :) look after yourself, God Bless xx

Franzi said...

I like the combinations with white / cream-colored and blue in different versions (light blue, navy ...)
Here in Germnany is a company, they have some really cute kids papers.
Greetings and a wonderful day for all.

Julia Stainton said...

I love boy stuff! My fave color combo is by far baby blue and chocolate brown.

janet allen said...

Congrats to you and your husband. How exciting & now that you know the sex, you can start the nursery. I think the nautical theme of red, white, and blue are so cute for a baby boy. Turquise and orange is also a nice combination.

Pattyjo said...

I think this years catty has a great one...its called "Special Delivery Boy". I so envy you, having a baby coming and all the fun of pregnancy and knowing what your having! I would do it all over in a heart beat. I have had 4 children and love being a mother.
Congratulations and you must share the name you pick too. Thanks for the chance.
