Summer in the City/Fancy Pants Designs

Hello friends! It's Yvette here with you today, and I have my first layout to share, using the super fun Sidekick Optional collection from Fancy Pants Designs

The Cityscape paper in this collection, was the inspiration for this layout. I fussy cut the skyline from both of the cityscape paper, found in this collection, one was glued to the background cardstock and the other was adhered with foam tape, which created a bit of dimension on my page. Added a drawn city skyline in the background and embellish. 

As you can see, I chose to use this collection to document a fun trip to Little Italy, instead using it to create a Halloween page. Inspiration is everywhere, so have fun creating!           


I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own.
Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Summer / Fancy Pants Designs

Hello my crafty friend! Yvette here today, and I have another layout to share, featuring the beautiful Vitamin Sea collection.

I started with a background cut file, backed the flowers with the Happy Strips patterned paper and then backed the entire cut file onto a solid blue piece of cardstock.

Selected two pieces of pattern paper from the collection, as well as my photo and cut then into circles. The circles was then stacked one on top of the other and place in the middle of the page. Next, I created a large cluster below the photo, using some chipboard stickers, die cuts and a tag.

I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own!

Proud Of You / Fancy Pants Designs

Hi Fancy Pants fans! Yvette here, and today I used the beautiful Cake Smash Collection to document a photo of my son in his graduation gown. (High School here we come!)

To give my page a feeling of celebration, as well as adding some dimension, I selected one of the pattern paper from the collection, cut it into thin strips and wrap the paper strips around a pencil which created these cute streamers. The streamers was then added to my layout.

Have fun creating your own embellishments using pattern papers from Fancy Pants collection, just by simply thinking outside the box!

Hi everyone! Today I have a new project for Fancy Pants!

   I started by stamping a few flowers and leaves to the bottom half of my page using soft pastel colors. My cut file was cut from white card stock and the colorful pattern papers from the Vitamin Sea 6x8 paper pad was used to back it. Embellish with a few chipboard stickers from the Cherry on Top collection and finished off the layout,by adding a speech bubble to make it look like my son is thinking of Ice-Cream!       


I hope you like my layout today and it has inspired you to create your own.

And Then, My Heart Burst / Fancy Pants Designs

Hi everyone! I have another fun layout to share with you today, using Fancy Pants Cake Smash Collection!

The Cake Smash collection has such a beautiful selection of pattern papers that can be used to document, so much more than just Birthdays. On this layout I used it to document a photo session of my son when he was about one. I used a large title cut file and backed each of the letters opening, with some of my Favorite colored papers from this collection. I then added a small amount of embellishments around the page to give it a nice, overall balance. 

Challenge yourself to use a theme collection such as the Cake Smash, to document a park outing or maybe some art projects your kids made. Remember to think outside the box and most of all have FUN!
