Today I am going crazy for Fancy Pants Designs.
I still sit and stroke the beautiful box I received after CHA. The novelty still hasn't worn off.
This month I was asked to design with their Chipboard Banners and this is how I used them:
(click on photos to enlarge)
I decided to document how we as a family watched the recent Royal Wedding at home on the TV eating cream cakes and drinking bucks fizz. (the kids felt terribly grown being able to have their own glass each).
I sanded and distressed the edges of the chipboard banners as well as the stars that came in the same pack. This worked really well as some of the stars were yellow, so by sanding I was able to remove the colour.
I then stitched along to create the banner string.
I also used the matching alphas on which I added glossy accents so they stood out better, some of the matching papers and Fancy Pants doilees too.
You can see my page on the Fancy Pants Blog here.
Next up is my 'Studio' page for this week.
The challenge this week is to add lots of dimention to the page.
I used the 'Beach Babe' collection. From Fancy Pants again.
I heavily embellished the page with the chipboard pieces.
I love the vibrants colours from this collection. Just so fun to work with.
The ribbon and brads are also from 'Beach Babe'.
I've carried on with the same ribbon, papers, chipboard and flowers.
The place we stay in Florida is called 'Bahama Bay' so this chipboard title fitted perfectly. I needed to cut the palm tree trunk though so it would fit in neatly.
I love these photos of Hollie at the resort. The kids are so happy here.
I think I have spent far too long at my desk today. My left elbow really hurts.
Abit of a quieter day here today after 2 very busy ones. Nothing planned after school : ) And the goulash went in the crockpot at 8.30am, so I don't even have dinner to sort now tonight.
I may just have some scrappy time later.
Enjoy your day xxx
