07/28/15

Hello Fancy Pants Designs friends! Today Yuki here to share fun party projects with you.

I created those cute treat bags using the Office Suite collection. I prepared these bags for the souvenirs of the girls’ party. The sweet colors in this collection are perfect for the tiny party bags for the little ladies.

I made a small tag for each and tied it to the handle of the bag. I added cute items from the Ephemera Pack, Flair, Labels Pack, Insta Pack, Alphabet Pack, and confetti to the tags.

I chose the letter for the initial of the girls from the Alphabet Pack in the Flutter collection.

I really love those cute scrabble pieces!

Good morning Fancy friends.  Here’s another fun project you can find featured in this month’s issue of Scrap-Info.  Check out the full publication to see more projects from us!

I had a great time stealing this adorable photo from my friend when we were scrapbooking together.  There is only one other female in our house and that is my dog Flo.  I wanted to use the gorgeous pink papers in the Summer Sun collection so I grabbed this older photo of Em.  She is photogenic and adorable!  Perfect for the flip flops and “love” Brag Card.  I will be giving this layout to my chum while begging for more photos.  Just take a look at the pink and grey together.  I challenge you to try that color combo.  It was super fun.

Take a look at the banners poking from the top of the Brag Card.  I cut pieces of scrap paper and created layering under the card.  A few sequins, machine stitching and some pink Stickles also add embellishment.

OK.  Confession.  I placed the “She” down.  I did not like where I placed it.  When I removed it, I tore the “h” a little.  Nothing that a bit of pink ribbon couldn’t fix.  Now, you can’t even tell.  Why not add more pink, right?

Furry Friends Week: Wilson

07/24/15

Hi there Fancy Pants Designs friends and welcome to our last day of Furry Friends week. Meet Wilson. This guy stole our hearts the moment we laid eyes on him.

In a house teeming with females my husband is happy that he is not the only male in the house, even if his partner is covered in hair and eats from a dish on the floor.

For someone who never thought she would own a pet, I sure like this little guy and he has managed to make his way onto a number of pages in the family scrapbooks over the past six years.  Here, I used the fabulous boy themed Making Waves collection to showcase this hilarious photo of him looking too cool for school in the shades. I’m all about spending more time creating and less time coordinating and just love that Fancy Pants Designs collections come loaded with all my favourite things to use on a layout.  I never have to go digging through my stash to find journaling cards, buttons, or flair.

That fun cut file background was designed by our Fancy Pants Designs friend Ashley Horton and can be found in the Cut Shoppe store.  I found that filling all the holes with coordinating patterned paper from the Making Waves collection took away from the main focus of my layout and therefore chose to fill only a few along the left side of the layout.

Happy Friday friends! Be sure to come back next week for new and exciting inspiration.

Furry friends week: They had him at WOOF.

07/23/15

Hi friends…Kim here!

I hope you are enjoying ‘Furry Friend’  week here at Fancy Pants Designs? Today I am excited to share a page capturing the love my son has for our two scruffy, rescue mutts. He absolutely adores him, & they him. It is wonderful to watch how they love & take care of each other.

They had him at WOOF by Kim Watson

@Kim Watson @fancypantsdesgn  #scrapbooking #layout #pets

Using the wonderfully masculine products from the Making Waves collection, I was able to create 3 distinct clusters within the design. This design principle helps guide ones eye around the centrally placed photo strip, placing emphasis on the important parts of the page.

@Kim Watson @fancypantsdesgn  #scrapbooking #layout #pets  A combination of Making Waves Ephemera, large die-cut alphas & stickers stitched through, make for an eye catching title! I love how there are a mixture of patterns in the alpha set giving one great variety when creating a conversational like this.

@KimWatson @fancypantsdesgn  #scrapbooking #layout #pets

Journal onto white strips for a fresh, clean look. Placing them at fun angles, help the playful feel of the page.

@KimWatson @fancypantsdesgn  #scrapbooking #layout #pets

Die-cut numbers teamed with with sentiment banners cut from a journal card & a few enamel dots, make for a cute secondary title.

@KimWatson @fancypantsdesgn  #scrapbooking #layout #pets

Mixing in silver foil die-cut elements & a Flair button, further support the nautical feel of the Making Waves collection , as well as adding a little sparkle, which is always fun on any project.

BONUS: I created this sketch based on my page design for your personal use. ENJOY!!

Furry Friends Week: Friends

07/22/15

Hello everyone, Alena here today sharing a project using the Office Suite collection.

Several months ago our family got a puppy – Pomeranian Foxy. Now Nikita and Foxy are inseparable friends. They walk together, play, sleep… one morning I photographed them.

I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo.

Next, I painted the title with watercolors.

I like the result!

I raised letters on foam pads. I added accents with buttons, the Label Pack, and sequins.

Furry Friends Week: Cat Lady

07/21/15

Hello, everyone! Anna is here and I want to share a layout and story about our cat. Her name is Diana and she is 1.8 years old. My husband gave her to me on my birthday last year and it was a great surprise both for me and for our daughter – it was such a touching moment of first meeting!

IMG_1732

Before I had a cat only when I was near eight years old, so we all really didn’t know what to do with a small kitten! But now she is an integral part of our family and I really can’t imagine how I can go home and Diana doesn’t stay near the door.

IMG_1737

But character… oh it’s awful, hah! She dislikes when we touch her. Diana starts biting and scratching. But on the other side – she is always near us, lies, sits, everything we do – she should be here.

IMG_1738

And my layout is about her pictures as she lies on my work table.

IMG_1736

I used a cut file by Cut Shoppe and the Office Suite collection to create this layout. I cut with my Silhouette Cameo the phrase “Cat Lady”, added letter D (means Diana) on the letter Y. And some layers and embellishments on the page. Very elegant result as our Cat Lady Diana.
