Today, we start with Be You! Full of color, charisma and a touch whimsey, this collection is as unique as YOU!
We have tons to share with you! Take a look at these layouts, cards and projects by our talented Pockets Chicks!
Happy by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah says, "I was inspired by all of the fantastic patterns in the BE YOU collection, and I wanted to create a layout that showcased many of those fun and happy patterns. So, I used circle punches to add to the teal pattern background paper, and then I accented the layout with hand cut flowers from the pattern paper. I also added doodling around the circle punches and my punched hearts to coordinate with the doodled look in the papers. I knew that my photos of my kids dancing in the rain would be just perfect with these fun and happy pattern papers!"
Be You layout and cards by Betsy Veldman
Besty says, "I am totally in love with the colors in this collection. And that Subway Art paper? Completely awesome ... although a bit intimidating at first! I had fun cutting it apart to create a big, bold title for this page about my daughter who is definitely her own little person—with a whole lot of personality!
Be You by Piradee Talvanna
Piradee says, "I just had so much fun creating with this collection, the fun colors and adorable designs; I think that bird is the cutest ever and loving especially the flocked transparency in this collection as it adds just the right amount of design and color that I needed for the background and provides the contrast to the fun colors in this collection."
Be You by Jess Mutty
Jess says, "Be You is my favorite new Fancy Pants line! I love how easily this collection can be used for either a girl or a boy. I chose to do a boy page and used the gray/yellow/teal colors with a black and white photo of my son. The large star is stitched. I added the chipboard banner to the upper corner for balance."
Shine card by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "That chevron paper is so great, it makes for an easy background. I played off the pattern and added stitching around it. I added a couple banners to the right and then I cut the shine piece from the cards paper and popped it up off the card. This is a very simple, but beautiful card."
You You You by Suzanne Sergi
Suzanne says, "I love the fun, and vibrant colors of this collection! It definitely is full of funky, and fun designs! As always, Fancy knows how to mix a variety of papers to create a mix that is fun, and adds lots of interest to your pages! This collection is about documenting your story, and personality. This collection captured my daughter's personality perfectly!"
Be You by Yuki Shimada
Yuki says, "I love the colors of this new collection, Be YOU. I used the stamps for the title work on this page."
You Shine by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah says, "I was inspired by all of the fun flower prints in the BE YOU collection, and I created a layout based off of those patterns. I created a mask on the background of my page by simply using punched out paper hearts, misting over them, then doodling around the border of the hearts. I used a filter paper embellishment behind my photos that I printed in black and white and only the front photo in color to coordinate with my YOU SHINE page title."
Be You Pendant by Jess Mutty
Jess says, "I really love these metal frames and charms and wanted to make something that could be worn or hung to remind me to "Be You". I used a rub-on in the frame and made a teeny accordion flower charm to hang from the top."
Live In The Moment by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "I just loved the patterned papers in this collection so I decided to cut several large hearts from some of my favorites. I LOVE these colors and wanted a bright and fun page, to go with the bright and fun personality of my little girl. I really had a blast playing with these papers and can't wait to play more."
Find What Makes You Happy by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah says, "I was really inspired by many of the doodled images in the "Be You" collection. The colors are fun and playful, and I wanted to create fun playful accents to coordinate. So, I used the filter paper embellishments and cut strips from the outside edges to the center point of the filter paper creating fringed strips all the way around. Then, I adhered the tips of the cut strips to the center point of the filter and added a center to create these fun flowers!"
