Father's Day Ideas

TGIF my friends! Ready for another summer weekend? We sure are! Seems like our June weekends are packed with fun stuff! Love that about summer. Work hard, play hard. 

And don't forget it is Father's Dad on Sunday! I have a fun project idea and a card that you could make for a special guy in your life. 


Design Team member Sara made THIS amazing mini album using old photos of her grandfather, father and uncles. She used the Timeless Type Stack which goes perfectly with the feel of this album. I think this is an example of how the right photos and the right stack can really take on a life of their own!


She hardly needed to add any embellishments, the photos and paper tell the story.


She left room for journaling for her father to complete. This will become a family heirloom that generations will enjoy! There are more pages you can see on her blog as well. Thank you, Sara, for sharing this with us!


Karla made this fun card that would be great for Father's Day! She used the new Green Stack which is coming to Jo-Ann at the end of the month. I love how clearly you can see the grid pattern that is woven into this paper. It is so cool, you have to see it!

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and Father's Day! Make it a good one!

See you back here on Monday :)
