‘Take Note’ of this amazing Felt Pennant in the center of my page!! They are fab and add so much contrast and texture to a layout. I used a Hello Sunshine straw over the wooded stem. I mad a slit in the straw, the length of the felt part and slid the straw up the wood, from the bottom up to the top.
I loved the Jot it Down Paper as a base. I cut square of random papers to fill some of the sections and stamped the date on the exposed calendar sections. I added random ephemera that made sense with my theme.
The Take Note collection is perfect for so many things. I may have documented a band concert with it here, but I could have easily documented the first day of school, last day of school, a good grade or any activity.
Best thing about Fancy Pants……..So many of the collections blend together. I used Washi from Good Fellows, Yellow Washi from Attwell, the straw from Hello Sunshine and the yellow alphas from Life is Beautiful. It all goes!Read More
Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you a fall wreath made with the lovely new collection Spellbound.
I started by cutting out leaves that were slightly different in shape and size. I wanted the wreath to be kind of discreet so I mostly used the papers with lighter colors for this wreath.
Since I didn’t work with so many papers i found a different way to set the papers a little apart. I cut out some leaves in vellum and glued the layers together, that way the leaf looked lighter.
To set the different leaves apart more I stitched the stem and veins with different colors.
Since the embroidery hoop is pretty thin I used a fast drying glue to glue all the pieces to the embroidery hoop.
I wanted a few colors to pop so I added one paper layer of orange. I cut out six identical leaves in 3 different sizes and glued them on top of each other to add some extra dimension.
To add some dimension to the leaves I bend all the leaves in the middle so they wouldn’t lay completely flat.
I hope I have inspired you to make something pretty to hang on your wall.
Hey there, I can’t wait to share my latest projects with you. Since this month is all about fall and celebrating Halloween around here, I decided to do some fun stuff using the new Spellbound line. I loved the little treat bags included in the line and decided to dress them up a bit to use for some special Halloween treats.
The easiest way to get the creative juices flowing is to start with a sketch. I started with a sketch from Page Maps. It is so fun to be collaborating with them this month. A sketch is a jumping off point. Interpret how ever you may want.
So, instead of using the 9 squares, I used 4. I also used my photos for the squares instead of patterned papers. I switched the robot to a dog and put it on the other side of the page too. It was so fun!!! The rest of the sketch, I stuck to pretty closely.
For my project, I used the new, Spellbound collection.Read More
Hey Fancy Pants Designs friends! Today I’m sharing a layout I created using the Fancy Pants Designs “Take Note” Collection along with the the inspiration of this great sketch from Becky Fleck.
The layout of this sketch was just so perfect for what I had in mind. I wanted to create a layout incorporating a number of photos from trips my oldest son and his girlfriend took in 2017. The “Take Note” Collection had everything I needed once. Once I had picked out and sized the numerous photos I used, it just all came together.
The 2×2 and 2×4 inch squares between the photos were easily filled with the fun patterned paper. There are so many to choose from. But there were also great pieces of ephemera with this collection I wanted to add also. So I added those in some of the spaces were I had put the patterned papers.
I knew as soon as I looked at the sketch, I wanted to use the “The world is at your fingertips” for my title. As for that darling little globe… oh my, I HAD to use it.
This collection also has a coordinating stamps set that is adorable. I used it in a number of different places on this layout, to add interest. Under the large photo I stamped “The things we did”, and along the side of the photo I stamped five little stars.
I also used the numbers inside the cute little circles to add the date. The stamps set has so many pieces what are very diverse.
Pulling this layout together with these great papers and pieces from this collection, along with the creative sketch was a lot of fun.
I hope it all inspires you to want to CREATE today!
