Men who Scrap - show yourselves!

Newark, OH(Zone 5b)

Yes, they exist! We know Tim Holtz is a scrappin' rockstar with his own awesome line of products!

And we know DG's very own dp72 here is a guy and a talented cardmaker. I know there have to be more. Come on out of the woodwork, you paper crafting men!

There are three men who post regularly on the Fiskateers boards at All three have their own blogs:


Calv wrote this on the Fiskateers board in a thread called "Guys scrappin' in a girl's world": The Maddy he speaks of is his girlfriend:

Yes i am indeed a male crafter, thoroughly enjoying my trip through a crafty world that appears at first to be primarily a "girl thing". However i am quickly finding that there are more male crafters than i first thought.

I've dabbled in most crafts at one time or another, and at times also struggle with the whole girly approach to the crafty tools lol. Actualy i'm not that fussed, i just like to have a moan once in a while and assert my manlyness amongst the world of pink!!!

As Maddy says, i've started a list of fellow male crafters on my blog, and have a lot more to add.

I'm also the only guy at the craft club that Maddy runs, but i really enjoy it lol. It's not even scary! Well not always lol.

As for "male orientated craft tools and embellishments, there are a lot out there if you look around, but also if theres something you cannot find, maybe thats an area you could look at changing? Suggest something to a manfacturer.

I sometimes feel there is very little in the way of crafty goodies than can entice young boys and teen boys into the world of crafting. I mean i know it's not exactly a cool thing to be doing at that age, but there are tons of "boy" orientated subjects that could do with being involved more in crafts.

I think the bottom line is that guys need to be secure in themselves not to worry about what anyone else thinks, and as long as you are happy....then just do it!

I was a military policeman in the British Army for 9 this is bit of a change for me lol.
