Life's Little Adventures

Hi Friends!
I want to share a quick layout I whipped up using the Trend Setter collection from Fancy Pants Designs.
I just love these photos of my Grandma from a long time ago! I've wanted to get them scrapped for quite some time so I'm glad I've finally done it.
I white washed over the manilla coloured stencil to tone down the cream color a bit. I layered different papers under the stencil to create my title.

I finished off the layout with a bunch of fun embellishments from the collection; buttons, tags, frames, ephemera and stickers. I just love this line! so fun, and the colors are awesome :)

Anyways, that is all for today...
Thanks for stopping by

Park Bench Cards

Hello Friends!
I'm sharing some fun cards today that I made with the Park Bench Collection from Fancy Pants Designs.
I just love this collection! The colors are so fun and there are such great patterns.

I made a fun birthday card with a pocket on the front perfect for slipping in a little giftcard!

Oh, I just realized the yellow pocket on the front of this card is from the Down by the Shore Collection from Fancy Pants Designs! It's great a lot of the collections and products coordinate for even more options!!!

My second card could work for many different occasions. You could give it to a parent, child, spouse or friend.
I punched out some little clouds from the white corrugated paper. I love how easy it is to use punches and diecuts on this paper. It give such great texture and dimension to any project.

The little flag says 'you are my sunshine' so I used a sunshine die to make a sun out of the Park Bench papers.

I finished off the card with some stickers and buttons from the collection.
That's all for me today, thanks so much for stopping by!

My Creative Sketches: May Sketch Challenge

Oh, I just love getting a new sketch to play with and this month's sketch from MCS is no exception! It was super fun to play with and I'm loving how my layout came together...
this is the sketch we're playing along with this month...isn't it great!!!!
I used the Trend Setter collection from Fancy Pants Designs for my whole layout. I just love this collection! It is so fresh and fun and funky, it was just the perfect thing to use with these funny photos of my DD.
The title comes from the Brag Pad and worked perfectly!
I thought that if I placed the banner like it was in the sketch that it might make my layout look to cluttered so I moved it up to to top right corner. I put a circle around the number 10 on the paper because that is how old my daughter is.
I die cut some stars out of the coral and mint corrugated papers from the collection. I love the look of them, they give great texture.
I'm just loving this sticker a girl SHOULD be classy and fabulous! It's like it was made for this layout.
Anyways, that's it for me. Make sure you stop by the MCS blog to see what the rest of the DT did with this sketch as well as to check out the details of the sketch challenge and the awesome prize you could win for participating. I hope you'll play along :) Deadline is June 14th so you have lots of time!
Thanks for stopping by today!
