Today I thought I’d share a couple of layouts I designed for the Fall issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, using the playful collection from Fancy Pants called “Childish Things.”
This collection comes with wonderful embellishments, which I used on my two layouts: ribbon, rub-ons, stickers, alphabet, and glitter cut-outs.
|“Wish Upon a Star”
I thought these fun bright papers were perfect for some photos of Disneyland. Here is BabyOfTheFamily in Toon Town, a trip we made a few years ago…when she was still interested in playing with fake TNT.
|This flower “glitter cut” serves as my pinwheel centre.
|Another glitter cut for my journaling spot
|I outlined the title with a black marker so it would stand out more. Isn’t this “Glitter Girl” adorable?
The next layout is actually about one of my passions in life: community service. But the photo is not me! ha ha ha! It’s the teacher of the preschool on the first day of class.
Since we moved into our neighbourhood 12 years ago, I’ve been involved in our community league and a number of projects. Organizing a preschool for our neighbourhood is something that was near and dear to my heart. I am passionate about Education!
|Love this quote! It’s a rub-on.
|A sticker layered on top of Sizzix Accordian Flowers (Tim Holtz collection)
It’s funny, but I haven’t created with Fancy Pants papers in quite awhile…but I used to use them ALL the time.
I think you can relate: Too many papers….too little time!
I even felt a bit like a preschooler myself, working with this bright colour palette, cutting and pasting. Ahhhh….to be a child again!
