I am excited to share my contribution to the ‘Mix It Up Week’ here on the Fancy pants Designs blog where we have to mix paper and embellishments from different Fancy Pants Designs collections. I chose this soft color palette with strong contrast of black & white, to showcase some photographs of my children from a few years ago.

I created this layout using products from a variety of the Fancy Pants Designs collections:
–Artist Edition: Wood Veneer Title, Cork Shapes
– Summer Sun: Grey Striped paper
– Office Suite: Button Mix, Labels Pack, Papers, Insta Pack, Brag Cards, Flair
– Flutter: Ephemera Pack, Insta Pack, Papers
Trimming down brag cards into journal blocks & layering them with ephemera & Flair makes for a cute cluster in this corner. Using the little gold foil frame from the Insta Pack…makes the most adorable photo frame for the sweet photo of my two children.
Another gold frame from the Insta pack, a sentiment label & an arrow really draws attention to this photo. Try adding uneven rows of stitching for great texture & extra interest.
These over sized wood veneer titles are some of my favorite Fancy Pants Designs products. They are slightly chunkier than usual veneer, which really helps them make a statement on one’s page. The combination of fussy cut butterflies, gold foil die-cuts, wood & cork make an interesting mixture textures, yet the page remains soft & feminine. So today, I challenge you to go through your stash…grab an unlikely mix of textured elements, some soft colored papers & a few strong neutrals for a winning combination. This color palette is timeless & would suit any page theme; I am excited to see what you come up with.
Thanks for stopping by!
