Eeeeeeeeeek today is the day......

Hey guys,

Exciting news today! It was very hard to keep this one under wraps haha! If you have been following me, you know how much I love Fancy Pants! I probably mentioned it once or twice (lol!) in my posts...I've joined the Fancy Pants Design Team!!! Wooohooo, I still can't quite believe it! This has been my ultimate scrappy dream! Thank you Jodi so much for having faith in me! <3 <3 <3

I don't know if you guys have seen the 3 new FP collections, but they are to die for. My personal favourite at the moment is Golden Days! The colors are so gorgeous! Mint, coral, navy and a mustard kind of yellow...Swoon! So, obviously I couldn't wait to work with this line!

For my introduction post I've created two layouts. I didn't have a topic, I just had to create something that showcases my style. I think these two layouts do just that. Take a look:

Hope you like what you see!

Thank so much for stopping by today XXX

Magic - DT layout for The Cut Shoppe

Hi there,

I'm back with a new layout for The Cut Shoppe! Again I'm using the amazing Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills collection.

I used the top right cut file from the above set, added outlines and then welded the half circles together in a circle kind of shape. I used pop dots to raise the file up for some added dimension. I added my photo and a few embellies and then called it done! I didn't even need to use ink because my background paper already had ink splatter. Easy! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon :) X

So Dapper - DT layout for Scrap Our Stash

Hey there scrappy friends,

I am bringing you a new layout today that I created for the book inspired stash challenge over at Scrap Our Stash. Here's the challenge:

When I saw this book I knew right away what collection I would use. I mean, this screams Fancy Pants Good Fellows right?! I love love love this line! I know, I say this about each Fancy Pants line, but well, it's what it is, I'm just a big fan!

Since I already did quite a few layouts with Good Fellows, I didn't have an awful lot of 12x12 papers left but luckily I still found some that made a good background.

I wanted to recreate the gentleman as my main design element and I remembered I had some cut file that was perfect for this. I cut each piece from different patterned paper, and I finally found a good use for the silver foil paper in this collection! Perfect for the glasses! I outlined each shape with a black marker so they stand out more.

This collection is full of ties and I haven't used them so far. I found the perfect picture of my son that I took many years ago at Christmas and he was wearing a tie. Just for fun I tried if I can hide his tie behind the puffy sticker tie and it was the perfect size for my photo, I loved it! So I left it on the photo :). Isn't Maxim super adorable?! I am pretty biased for sure ha!

I added some layers of patterned papers behind my photo as well as some tags (this is where I used the twine as per challenge rules) and ephemera pieces. Some wood veneer is always good...The Right Now piece is also from Fancy Pants, the camera clip I am not sure, the Cutie piece is from Elle's Studio.
For my title I used the Good Fellows alphas. Unfortunately I don't have a lot left so I had to get creative with my E there! I think it was an ampersand that I then cut up for this!
I hope you like what you see and join us in this challenge! You have till end of the month to link up your projects! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
