Hi there crafty friends,
Zsoka here with you today sharing a new layout I’ve made for Fancy Pants Designs.
I’ve used the Poolside collection with a little bit of The Bright Side on this one.
I chose this adorable Crab cut file from Paige Evans (Silhouette ID: #267053) and cut it from textured white card stock. Then I backed it with patterned papers from both collections and adhered it on the background paper (from The Bright Side collection).
I kind of put the photo in the crab’s claws but now that I’m looking at the close-up I notice it came out on the left side. Oh well, you get the idea :). For my title I used a die cut, Fun in the Sun, which perfectly fits my photo! Because apparently at that age eating sand is fun, ha! I also tucked that adorable smiling sun die cut behind the title and adhered another phrase die cut on the photo. Oh, and of course I had to use a rubber charm clip! How cute is that flamingo float?!
There is a patterned paper in the Poolside collection that has these big monstera leaves on it and I felt the need to fussy cut some! There’s also some in the ephemera pack. It’s totally random but I tucked these leaves in between the crab’s leg haha! Random or not, I like the way it looks :).
On one side I created a flower cluster, again, totally random, but I love flowers so it’s all good!
On the other side I created another cluster with some summer icons like flip flops, snorkelling mask and a swim ring. To create a dimensional look I used foam adhesive in many places.
This layout came together very quickly, it’s quite possibly the quickest layout I have ever made! But I still like how it turned out, I hope you do too!
Thanks for stopping by today, have an amazing day!
Hello, everyone! Maryám here with you to share another project using the Poolside collection. For today’s project, I decided to make a fun layout, using a lot of flowers and the fussy cutting technique.
I started fussy cutting some tropical leaves from the Summer Lovin’ paper. Then, I adhered them to the left side of my page. I also added a few flowers and some puffy hearts and dots.
After that, I added the photo. Since the photo had a lot of space around I adhered some embellishments and stickers over it. In the end, I added my journaling and some mint ink splatters.
Want to see more details? Here are some close-ups.
I hope you liked this project. Let me know if you have any questions. I can’t wait to see what you will create.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!Read More

I’m back on the blog today and I’m here with another shape layout! If you remember my last post, I worked with CIRCLES and today I am working on a layout with TRIANGLES!
I love that using a shape can create a beautiful layout, a unique look and it really shows off the variety of patterns in a collection! And The Poolside Collection is so perfect for summer projects!
To create my project I cut out a variety of triangle shapes… you can see that they all vary in size and shape, but still maintain their triangle title!
Adding a few accents to help balance the bold shape of the triangles is perfect with the splashes of chipboard and small summer ephemera elements!
I also tucked my photo (which is rectangular) right into a flat space to line it up for a little title using the ephemera pieces!
This was another quick and easy layout once I created a ‘puzzle’ to fit all the pieces of my triangle shapes! Have you tried to create your own unique puzzle? It’s so fun to experiment with patterns and colors! Give it a try and be sure to share it with us so we can see your creations!
And Happy Summer!Read More
