My favorite - DT layout for Fancy Pants Designs

Hey there friends,
 
I'm popping in today with a new layout I created for Fancy Pants! I haven't worked with the awesome Family&Co collection yet (which by the way is on sale now at Make a pretty life), so I thought it was about time I do! I love the colors in this line!
 
 
I've wanted to use the Lotus lace background cut file from Just Nick in like forever, and I was determined to make it work even though it has nothing to do with my photo. But actually more often than not I use random cut files.
 
I cut it from white cardstock as usual and backed all flowers the same way, with the same 5 papers. I arranged these papers in a rainbow kind of order, from light to dark, if that makes sense.

 
I then adhered the cut file to my background, for which I chose this stunning light blue paper. To bring out the turquoise in the petals more, I added a strip of the same paper to the left side of my page. I used this as a mat for my big title.
 
 
I layered two tags and some tissue paper behind my photo. I added a couple of puffy stickers, labels and die cuts on and around my photo. I wanted to keep embellishing to a minimum since the background is busy enough already. There's so many amazing embellies in this collection again, it was hard to choose only a couple!


I stamped the date and wrote the location on a die cut. I didn't add journaling because this picture is a part of a photo series and I would write the same thing on all of them!


I hope you like this layout!
Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!

  1. Zsoka thank you for the beautiful Keep it Real tutorial! I tried to create it using the same cut files but when I weld the flower pattern to the heart the whole inside flower pattern disappears! What am I missing? Thank you!

    1. sorry for the late answer but I didn't get a message that I have a comment :(. hmmm that's a good question...if you followed each step you should not have that problem...Did you do compound path on the flower cut file?
