Festive Greetings to all of the Fancy Pants fans out there!
As a long time lover of Fancy Pants, it was a complete honour when Jodi invited me to be this month's guest designer.
For as long as I can remember I have always loved to play with paper and collect pretty things—and as a forty-something Momma to two teenage boys, I still have the same paper passion today as I did as a child! Ever since stumbling across scrapbooking in 2005, I feel incredibly blessed to have been able to combine my paper passion with my love to travel—having taught scrapbooking classes here in the UK as well as across Europe, Israel and South Africa.
During May 2011, I was super excited to be invited by Alice Dabush to visit Israel to teach a Fancy Pants class at her store, My Punch, Birthday celebrations.
The ladies at the event had so much fun creating their projects using one of the wonderful Fancy Pants Artist Edition Mixed Media albums combined with product from the It's The Little Things range.
Fancy Pants Artist Edition Brag Books have to be one of my all time favourite journaling albums. As soon as I saw the albums I decided I wanted to use one to create a year long "Blessings Journal" for 2012.
A dedicated place where I can jot down those daily blessings which we so often fail to record.
With plenty of journaling pages and places to store all those special mementos, Fancy Pants Brag Books are simply perfect to create a treasured keepsake.
It's The Little Things is one of my all time favourite releases from Fancy Pants.
The handy packs of Design and Journal Embellishments make creating pages a breeze.
The colour palette works so well for an array of pages with a variety of page themes.
With Christmas just a few weeks away I had to share a couple of festive projects.
My little nephews were so excited that Santa would soon be paying them a visit—I couldn't resist scrapping this cute photograph of them using papers from the Tradition collection.
This festive wreath was created by cutting 1/2 inch wide strips from sheets of Tradition patterned paper.
The paper was then curled using scissors and simply attached to a polystyrene wreath using pins.
More of my work can be seen over on my blog, where visitors are always welcome :D
Thank you so much for stopping by the Fancy Pants blog today and thanks to Jodi for inviting me to share my projects with you - its been a blast.
May you be blessed with a joyous Christmas filled with love, peace and happiness ... and plenty of scrapping fun!
