Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a super summery page using the great On Our Way collection. I just LOVE the bright and vibrant colors in this line.
I created a watercolor like background on the center of my page and added a row of punched half circles to create a sun-like design. The golden yellow patterned paper is so perfect for some of those summer photos that I know you have been capturing lately!
Next, I added a large black diecut title to the center of my “sun” and added some thin strips of the rainbow striped patterned paper in the collection. I added more rainbow by stamping a rainbow of hearts along the bottom of my photo mats using the On My Way clear stamps and a variety of inks.
Although the On Our Way collection is meant for travel/vacation photos, I think it is perfect for other projects as well. I couldn’t resist using some of the more feminine colors in this collection to create this project.
By die-cutting flowers on my digital die cutting machine from multiple papers in the On Our Way collection, I was able to layer together some pretty petals in soft pink, red and yellow around my photo. The die cut flowers create a focus back onto the single photo on the page.
The fun adhesive backed buttons in the On Our Way collection were perfect addition to the center of some of the smaller die cut flowers. So great that they come with foam adhesive already in tact!
It’s my turn on the blog today! Every once in a while I jump in on the action and collaborations with other companies! This month we’ll be sharing the PageMaps projects we worked on early in the year!
Here is my finished layout and the sketch I followed just below it!
These sketches always give me a head start and makes my creating so much easier! Sometimes I forget they are available at my fingertips… it makes documenting your memories so much easier when you are stuck!
Here are a few close ups…I used The Bright Side Collection for my project and went with a dark background…one, because the sketch looked that way haha and two, because it really made my photos and products POP off the page!
I tend to collect items that are fun to embellish or alter. The frame is from Ikea and come in a multi-pack for a great price. I started off by setting the background with the green stripe panel. All the papers are from the 6×6 paper pad.
I die cut a coffee cup using the floral paper, topping it off with a solid black lid and an upcycled coffee sleeve. I love looking with the Ephemera packs and went a bit crazy picking out goodies. I varied heights by using foam adhesive squares.
I decided to add a coordinating card.
To continue the green stripe theme, I used a band of it for my card. I die cut the sending in black cardstock and added a stamped sentiment. I thought that the kite would be perfect for the design and finished it off with white poms.
I have so many coffee loving friends and can’t wait to pop this in the mail to one of them.
