Scrapbook Generations CREATE magazine featuring Fancy Pants Designs!

 It's here:

are excited to announce their coordination on the first publication of  CREATE brought to you by Scrapbook Generations.  Our design team created a bundle of designs for this great publication...and the most exciting part is that it's FREE.... over 200 pages of pure inspiration---and a bunch of it from our team this month! YAY!
And, a few more details on the publication:
CREATE is a free monthly digital magazine published by Scrapbook Generation, a scrapbook store in Springfield, MO. The first issue, 223 pages, launched this week in conjunction with the opening of   Scrapbook Generation's expanded, full-service online store.
The design team for Fancy Pants Designs used four sketches {by the talented Allison Davis and Debbie Sanders}, and created a total of 34 projects featured in the magazine! Plus, {YAY to our awesome DT!}  We also provided information about using the sketches, as well as interesting tidbits about our projects. The four sketches are included in the magazine and are available as a free download to readers! Plus--you can link up to our personal blogs and see more inspiration! 
CREATE also includes some fun "inside" facts about Fancy Pants Designs--and some silly pictures, too!
While it focuses on sketches, the magazine covers other topics of interest to scrapbookers and cardmakers, like mini-albums, journaling, techniques, and more. There is also a readers gallery and a call for submissions for the March issue.  Check it!

My Creative Sketches: January Sketch Challenge

There is a fun new sketch challenge at My Creative Sketches this month! Just follow the link for all the details.
Here is the layout I made based on the sketch. These are some of the first photos of all three of my kiddos together after my new daughter was born. The two older siblings were so excited to meet her!
Here is the sketch we are playing along with...
and a few close ups of the details of my layout.
I am pairing this sketch challenge up with one of my design team projects with Fancy Pants Designs. I used the super fun Be Loved collection to make this layout. It is a Valentines/Love themed collection but with it's fun color pallet it can definitely be used for all kinds of projects.

If you link up your layout here by February 14th you have a chance to be featured on the My Creative Sketches blog and win this fabulous prize!!! I'm just LOVING all the fun and bright things going on in this prize!!!

I look forward to seeing your creations...
