Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings

4

Hello Magpies, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you all, so with this special day in mind I chose the lovely collection from Fancy Pants Design, My Sweet Nothings.

My first layout, Always & Forever, I used one of  my Wedding Day photographs.

I cut a design on my cameo, but only cut the bottom half of the white cardstock, then I added different patterned papers from the Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings 6×6 pad, behind each cut-out.

To give each shape a bit more depth, I used a thin marker and went around the edges of each shape, also added some machine stitches to a few of the shapes to add some texture.

Using the Fancy Pants Designs – My Sweet Nothings – Stamps I added some stamped detail around the area of the photograph, using a few different colours of ink, that matched the paper used at the bottom of the page.

I mounted the photographs using some black cardstock, and added 3D foam underneath before layering in on top of a few sheets of pattern papers from the 6×6 pad.

I then added some ink splatters to the left of the photograph, and added the title ‘always’ cut from my cameo over the top, I finished the title with the saying ‘forever’ from the Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Puffy Stickers.

To finish the page I added a few punched heart shapes, using paper from the 6×6 pad and some die cut embellishments from the Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Ephemera Die Cut Pack, and a few hearts from the Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Heart Puffy Stickers.

My 2nd layout, ‘Love Being Your Mom’,

I used a heart design die cut, and infilled a few of the shapes with patterned paper from the 6×6 pad, which I positioned on the b-side of Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Post Script Paper, and lightly glued down then machined stitched with gold thread to secure to the paper.

Using a selection of papers from the 6×6 pad, I added behind each photographs and added the photograph strip to a strip of the b-side of Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Love is in the Air paper, which I positioned to the right of the background design.

I finished the layout off using a few tags from Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Tags, puffy heart stickers, puffy design stickers, and added the title using Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Alphabets.

My final layouts for this month, ‘Special Delivery’ uses a photograph of James at 1 day old.

I purposely, left the colour of his blanket showing, as I like the different ‘pop of colour’ that it bring to my layout.

For the base of this layout I used the b-side of Fancy Pants Design – Sweet Nothings – Something Sweet paper adding stripes of patterned paper Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Love Garden, Fancy Pants Designs – Sweet Nothings – Happy Mail paper

I layered the photograph using a selection of patterned papers from the 6×6 pad, and added 3D foam to the base so that it had dimension.    Using one of the stamps from the set, I stamped over the background paper before adding a selection of embellishments from the die-cut pack, and some heart and sequin design puffy stickers.

I added these little tags from the cut-apart sheet in the 6×6 pad.

These little envelopes, I created with a punch I’ve had for years, love how cute they look and added some of the heart puffy stickers to each mini envelope.

I cut the main title from my cameo, in red and black, finishing the title using the Alphabets from this collection.

Well thats me for this month, hope you like what I’ve done and why not give this collection a go, even thought it has a ‘valentine theme’ it can be used for so much more.

Happy scrapping
