|Posted: 1/27/2013 8:18:43 AM|I have 2 teenage boys and sometimes I have a difficult time finding lines t hat I like for scrapping their pictures. I enjoy using Echo Park because I love the color combinations but often find the stickers and A side pages too juvenile.
What do the peas recommend I look at???

I really like the Prima Craftsman collection - much more grown up than the Echo Park. Find some of it right here at 50% off!

The newer simple stories lines have beautiful, brighter colors. I have been using some of their collections for travel and boy pages, they work perfectly!

Wood grains, camo, neutrals, notebook paper prints, solids, etc. he's also getting me the digital files for his robotics group to print off and use. I could only find juvenile robot stickers and he did not approve.

Right now I'm really loving Pebbles new scene and noted collection. It has turquoise, grey, red, and yellow. I've used it on about 4 layouts so far of my 15 year old son!
It's so hard to find teenage boys supplies to scrap with that I like!

My son is 18, and I have the same challenge as you. The boy lines are too juvenile (unless I'm scrapping his baby/toddler pictures). What I do is use a lot of the B sides and Echo Park's Dot's & Stripes collection. I also bought a 3 Birds paper pad (exclusive to HSN) that has basic designs that coordinate with a lot of the lines that are out now.
My 13-year-old dd, however, really likes the robots and gears. She's not a tomboy, but rather a "geek girl." So when I get papers with those motifs, I use them for her photos.

I also think the new MME Boy Crazy is good if you use the B sides. It's new here in the shop. I haven't seen it in person yet.
Simple Stories has 2 new collections coming out soon that will be great for teen boys. 24/Seven and Urban Traveler - I love the bright, bold colors of these two lines. They aren't available yet but hopefully will be in the next month or so.

I think the new My Minds Eye REMARKABLE line is another candidate for teen boys.
And I also agree with the SS Awesome suggestion. Love that. Oh, and Jillibean Soup Macho Nacho. Super cute.
That's QUEEN Paper Peep to you!
