Three For Thursday: Let’s Hear It For The Boys!

TFT

Welcome back to another Three for Thurdsay post here at Scarlet Moon Crafts. This week I am turning my attention to the boys! I have my teenager’s 17th birthday looming and my husband is about to graduate university – not to mention Father’s day is fast approaching! Have you ever noticed that it can be tough to find gorgeous craft supplies for adult male cards and projects? I am like a little magpie drawn to bright colours and glitter so my stash needs a serious testosterone injection. I have sat down with a cuppa and the Stampin’ Up! catalogue and found some wonderful products for male projects. These are my top three!

3 – Bookcase Builder Stamp Set

This is not necessarily a male orientated set, but I think the Bookcase Builder Stamp Set is a great option if you want to make a card for a male friend or relative. It is ideal for building up a bookcase to replicate his office or man-cave, but it is versatile enough that you can make a card for just about anyone. It is also great for new home or new job cards!

2 – One Wild Ride Stamp Set

These One Wild Ride Stamps are great for making male cards and projects, even if the man in your life is not a biker. You could also use them to document bike shows, trips to the transport museum or even road trips. This is a two step stamp set which means that you can build up the image your way!

1 – Urban Underground Suite

Urban Underground

My top pick for this week is the Urban Underground Suite. Sometimes it is really hard to find a nice ‘male’ or at least gender neutral kit that is not for kids. I think the Urban Underground Suite really hits the nail on the head – if you pardon the pun! The core colours are Basic Black, Basic Grey, Delightful Dijon and Very Vanilla with a touch of silver foil. Although the overriding theme of the set is actually construction and father’s day, the patterns on the paper are geometric and would actually work well for any occasion and any gender. I’ve seen it paired with the Beautiful You Stamp Set for a really feminine card too, so it is really versatile.

Easter @ Scarlet Moon Crafts

It seems like this year is flying by. I can’t believe that Easter is almost upon us! With just over two weeks to go, it is definitely time to start dressing those planners for Easter! That’s why I thought it would be a great idea to share some of the Easter items that I currently have available in my Etsy Store! Also, as a little added bonus you can use the code EasterBlog for 10% off when you spend £5 or more (Expires April 15).

One of the most popular items that I have been selling this Spring has been this bright and cheerful Daffodil Planner Clip. We sold a bunch around St David’s Day, but they have continued to be popular throughout Spring.  These are priced at just £2.00 and are the ideal addition to your planner either as a pocket decal or a page marker.

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I think about Easter the very first thing that springs to mind is probably bunnies and boy do we have bunnies for you! Let’s start with some planner bands! These adorable bunny planner bands are £2.99 and you can choose a grey bunny on a pale blue glitter band, or a white bunny on a pink glitter band.

20170402_213648Now, if you thought those guys were cute then what if I told you that we also have matching planner clips? As well as clips featuring those very same white and grey bunnies, we also have the cutest little bunny head clip as well! These are priced £2.00 each.

So, we have the obligatory Daffodils. We have the Easter bunny. What is missing? Oh, of course! We are definitely going to be needing some Easter eggs! We have several designs of Easter Egg planner clips and planner bands in store for you to choose from.

 

The first design is our Resin Easter Egg planner clips. Those have been incredibly popular and some of the designs are already sold out. We do still have 5 designs in stock though so grab em while you can!

If the resin is not your thing we also have some pretty felt Easter Egg Planner Clips as well in a range of designs and colours. These are priced at £1.50 each.

Also in stock at the moment I have a selection of imperfect designs / seconds. These were designs that I was not happy with and decided to discontinue. These are now priced only to cover materials and are a great way to pick up a bargain. Some of the Easter items in stock include foam bunny clips, Easter egg planner bands and of a different design of felt Easter egg clips.

Hop on over to Scarlet Moon Crafts on Etsy and grab yourself an Easter bargain. Don’t forget about that discount code – EasterBlog to get your discount on qualifying orders.

If you buy this bundle and throw in another small item such as an ink pad, you would hit the £45 mark which up until March 31st is going to qualify you for a free item – why not select the coordinating ‘Carried Away’ papers that are only available in this promotion!
