two in a row!

It must be a lucky day because I have another page to share.

This one was also created using Fancy Pants, only I used the Flutter collection for this one:

Anyone who has followed me for long knows that I tend to add lots of embellishments to my pages, perhaps sometimes too many. I do like that each Fancy Pants collection has a lot of diecuts, stickers, buttons, etc. to choose from. 

It may be hard to tell from the picture above but those yellowish pieces are actually GOLD! I am still happily continuing my gold kick- I think I like that it took me a little longer to get on board because I am still enjoying it and hope this trend doesn't go away anytime soon. 

Have a fun day!

Fancy Pants projects

Hi again!

Today I am going to share a new layout that I made for Fancy Pants Designs.

It's been fun to be part of the social media design team there. I like that my schedule is more flexible and I've been a fan of the company since almost the beginning of my scrapping days.

We happened upon this really cool camp that was not only fun for the kids but also totally free. They had a great time and are already planning to go next year.

I used the pretty Office Suite collection to make this page. I really like all of the little diecut borders and journaling spots. I used quite a few on this page.

Have a fantastic day!

a few sneaks

Summertime is filled with trips to the park and pool, chauferring my two oldest to gymnastics practice in preparation for the coming meet season.

Every now and then I get to scrap a little bit, and I have some fun guest designer projects to share with you very soon.

For now I can share a few sneaks:

Stay tuned!

I have a couple of new Fancy Pants projects to share this week, too.

Fancy Pants part 2

Hello again!

I have a couple more projects to share with you that I created for Fancy Pants:

My kids are reading up a storm this summer, participating in a few different summer reading programs. I thought it would be fun to make some bookmarks for them. For these I used tags and ephemera from the Fancy Pants Summer Sun collection. 

The kids loved them!

This page also uses the Summer Sun collection. Instead of using patterned paper I used a few Brag Cards to bring some color to my page and then used some smaller accents to finish off the page. It is a great way to use the pocket page-style cards on a traditional page.

Fancy Pants projects for June

Good afternoon!

Today I have a couple of projects to share with you that I created for Fancy Pants:

These cards were super-easy to create using Brag Cards from the Summer Sun collection. I added a little bit of glitter to the flower on the card on the left and to the bottom of the card on the right.

For this layout I used the Making Waves collection, which is great for summer fun, nautical themes and year-round memories. I used it to scrap these pictures of two of my girls with one of their cousins. 

The colors in the Making Waves collection go perfectly with their clothes, don't you think?

Thanks for stopping by today!

I have a couple more projects to share tomorrow and also make sure to stop by the Fancy Pants blog on Saturday for the Social Saturday round-up!

May flew by!


Was May a crazy month for anyone else?

There are always end of the year activities, assemblies galore, projects to do, etc.

And, we also got some sad adoption news and we are once again back at the drawing board.

That caused a bit of a distraction from everything else that we have had going on.

I didn't even get my projects posted but would love to share them with you today.

First of all, I did a project for some of the kids' school teachers.

I upcycled some metal containers which I decorated with papers and embellishments from the new Fancy Pants Making Waves, Flutter and Summer Sun collections.

After sharpening what seemed like a million pencils (it was actually only about 200) I used a paper punch to make some flowers to add to the tops of some of the pencils.

I added a gift card and a handmade card from my kids and this easy project was done.

Second of all, I created this layout using the beautiful Summer Sun collection:

Now that the kids are out of school for the summer hopefully things won't be quite AS crazy.

Ha ha.

I guess we'll see.

Happy 4th Birthday to Lily!

For the past however many months my husband has been asking our youngest how old she is, to which she grumpily answered "three and a half."

Today, though, she is 4!

I can't hardly believe it.

My little baby girl is growing up too quickly.

Here is a look at her over the years:

Have a wonderful day!

two new layouts for Fancy Pants

For this month's Fancy Pants projects I used the brand new Office Suite collection.

The soft colors and fun patterns in this collection along with all of the fun tags and other embellishments make creating super easy.

I stayed pretty simple with these two layouts allowing the photos to shine:

For both pages I used the large diecut alpha pack. I like how they make a big impact with no work at all. 

Have a wonderful day!
