It’s Anna here with my first post created for Fancy Pants DT! I am so happy and thrilled to work with those gorgeous products! I hope you will find my projects inspiring.
My first layout is a kind of introduction about me and what I like (beside scrapbooking of course ). I used “The Bright Side” collection for this page. I love the combination of bright colors ans cute patterns. This line can be used in so many projects. It’s very versatile.
I used my most favorite paper in this collection , called “Natural beauty”, as a background for my page. I printed series of funny selfies as it it page about me. I think using your own pictures in layouts it’s very important because your story matters. Your life is not only about cute kids and pest and beloved husband. You also deserve to scrap yourself. Don’t forget to add journaling, so your kids will have a lot to remember about you in many years from now.
I like my pictures to have frames. If I am not able to print them with white outline, I just add a frame made of paper. I used a pieces of papers from 6*6 pad and backed the photos with different colors. I love small paper pads because you don’t have to cut the whole 12*12 sheet to get just the tiny piece of pattern.
I went through ephemera pack and picked elements that matches the things I like. I got bird, because I like watching birds using binoculars. I am a sweet tooth so I picked those cute macarons. I do not drink coffee but I love drinking tea. That’s why I used a cup.
I scattered the chosen items under my pictures adding some tag from tags set and few chipboard stickers. I finished my composition by stamping names of my favs with different ink colors. Title of my page is quite simple – My favs. Because this page is all about it. I used black puffy alpha set from “Sweet nothings” collection. Adding stitches with loose thread ends is a great way to create texture on the page. My final step was to splash the page with colorful mists. I like this touch of mess on my layouts.
