Agnus | Project Life Fancy Pants 'Life is Beautiful' continued

Hello again, I am back to share the remainder of April using the 'Life is Beautiful' Collection from Fancy Pants. 

I have maganed to fit in the last two weeks of April on these pages and when using the same range of products across multiple pages, I often repeat the same patterns, colours and elements across all the pages so that there is a nice transition from one page to the next - check out my previous post to see exactly what I mean ;) 

As always I began with a custom title card to set the tone for the week, and have teamed up the gorgeous gold foiled vellum with some fun corrugated cardstock to give me a variety of textures. 
I toned down the bright coral colour with a little bit of white acrylic paint with a dry brush and once again use a few drips of the Citron Color Shine to add a little colour to the vellum.  

I printed a little bit of journaling onto one of the die cut speech bubbles from the ephemera pack and cut it so that it joined the filler card and photo. The quotation marks from the Polaroid stamp set helped to tell the story of what my little guys asks me every time we pass Pretzel World, and the photo corners from the puffy stickers were great for pointing out what he said.

I used an adhesive flip pocket to add a few extra pics from the Spotlight craft month tour, but you could also stitch or fuse a regular pocket from a spare page protector if you wanted to do the same. 

I carried over the corrugated cardstock and blue patterned paper to the second week, and kept the overall layout similar. 

The puffy stickers were such an easy way to give my photo a 'pop' and I couldn't get enough of the fun puffy dots for adding a little burst of colour.

Another trick for helping your page flow is the cut large elements in half and use them in two different pockets as I have with the large die cut doily in the top right and bottom left pockets.

I made a couple of simple filler cards with some die-cuts, stickers and stamping, and because I have used a little bit of all the colours from both pages they help to tie everything together.

Leanne | Father's Day Cards...

Hello Friends! It's never too early to be organised, right?! And with Father's Day just around the corner... well, okay... we have another month up our sleeves, but still... Organisation, right?! *grin* I thought I might get on board with the awesome Fancy Pants Designs | Good Fellows collection and create three super quick Father's Day cards.

The base of each of these cards has been created using one 12x12 piece of white cardstock. I trimmed the cardstock at 8" and then trimmed the 8"x12" piece in half at 6". Fold each card base in half.

Using the left over pieces from your Good Fellows kit and the mini paper pad, decorate and embellish the base cardstock.

Card 1.

Trim the Good Fellows | Big Fella to 3.75"x5.75" and adhere to the card base. Layer with a piece of paper from the mini paper pad trimmed to 3.5"x5.5". Using the "Father Figure" cut apart on the Good Fellows | So Strong patterned paper, center at the top of the inner layer on the card. Fill the lower part of the card with left over patterned paper (trimmed to 3" in width). Embellish the card with Ephemera Die-Cuts.

Card 2. 

The same layering principle applies to the second card. Trim paper from the mini paper pad to create layers. Using the leftover strips of patterned paper create a three wide banners. Add the "Happy Father's Day" banner from the Ephemera Die-Cuts and complete the card with a few puffy dot stickers.

Card 3.

The final card has been created using the 4"x12" cardstock base. Add strips of patterned paper next to each other and adhere directly to the card base. Embellish with a metal die-cut on the silver foil paper and layer with a banner from the ephemera die-cuts.

And there we have it! Three simple cards all created in under 10 minutes!

Leanne | Good Fellows Layout...

Hello Sassy Friends! It's Leanne here today, sharing another fun layout created from the Fancy Pants Designs collection | Good Fellows. I've been happily playing with the mini paper pad in particular this month and this layout is no exception. Check out what I've created with the left over bits and pieces of my kit. Today, I've focused on the title.

"Life As A Boy"

To create this title, I've used my Silhouette Portrait (or Cameo) to cut simple alphabet letters. The font I used was Arial Unicode MS. To make the letters wider I used the off set tool in the silhouette software.

Next I cut strips of patterned paper in various widths.

Using an off cut of cardstock, big enough to adhere to the back of the layout and cover the negative space of the silhouette cut file, I started adhering the strips of paper on an angle.

Finally, the excess paper strips are trimmed and the diagonal paper strip block is placed behind the cut file.

The remainder of the layout came together quite quickly, documenting boys and face paint antics! Thanks for visiting and don't forget all the product used here today, can be found in the shop..x
