We're back again today with TONS MORE inspiration! This time the Pocket Chicks are struttin' their stuff using Childish Things—a playful mix of patterns and colors that reminds you of the fun of being a kid!
Take a look at these creations!
Penny Pony by Amy Peterman
I loved working with Childish Things! The little horses in the collection are too cute (I mean, what little girl doesn't want a pony!?) and perfect for these photos of my daughter riding Sandy the penny pony at our local grocery store. It's the highlight of our shopping trip every time! I love the Chipboard Elements! I used a border along the bottom of my main photo and isn't that little crown adorable? And the Chipboard Banners are great for little accents here and there. I used a couple to create a "fair ribbon" along with one of the Filter Embellishments and a pony cut from the Playtime patterned paper! I also used one at the top of my layout and wrote the date on it.

My Prince Arrived by Suzanne Sergi
Suzanne says, "I had so much fun creating with this collection. I think this one has to be my favorite. As soon as I saw the prince design on the page, I was inspired to document these photos of my sweet son. Love the designs, and the flocked star transparency. The colors of the paper are fun, bright, and playful. I kept wanting to add as many layers of the paper as possible! Stamping is such an easy way to add more detail to your pages! I added a border of hearts using the heart stamp within the collection. So happy to see stamps as part of their new releases!"
Happy Day card by Jess Mutty
Jess says, "Childish Things is so full of whimsy! This card plays on that whimsy with a set of lollipop flowers made from patterned paper. I stitched the stems and leaves as well as the ruffled blue strip of paper. I offset the punched bottom so we can see the adorable red checked paper on the inside."
Watch Me by Jing-Jing Nickel
Jing-Jing says, "Without any doubt, the Childish collection is my favorite from this CHA!! It drips cuteness from head to toe just like my little one! There are so many directions one can take with this collection, including the obvious: fairy tale, romance, and children."
You Have My Heart card by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "I thought this would make a cute valentine card, or really it can be used for any occasion. :) Those kids are adorable! This is such a fun line!"
Bliss by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah says, "I was completely inspired by the fun and cheerful pattern papers in the Childish Things collection, so I created this girly layout showcasing many of the patterns and colors along with photos of my daughter. The colors in this collection and the outdoor photos of my daughter coordinated just

Superstar by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "I started by cutting some squares and thinking I was going to make a quilted-look to the background. But then I decided to have a little more fun and just scattered the squares instead, with no rhyme or reason to it. :) I love that cute image of the girl with the crown, so I popped it up and scrunched a plain filter flower behind it."
Dreamer by Jing-Jing Nickel
Jing-Jing says, "I think the Childish Things collection has my name, or at least my kids' names all over it! It's just perfect for these sweet photos and the cute girl in them!"
Happy B-day card by Yuki Shimada
Yuki says, "I made this card with the flocked transparency, chipboards, and filter flowers of the Childish Things collection. I really love the cute flocked transparency!"
Enjoy The Ride by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah says, "I was so inspired by the red gingham print and those adorable little bicycles in the CHILDISH THINGS collection! I knew instantly that I had the perfect photos! I created the flowers by simply using 2 different sized flower punches and layering them together. There was also a fantastic date/journaling oval that I cut from pattern paper then printed my journaling right on top. I really love how well the variety of colors and patterns work together in this collection!"

Queen of Farkel by Pamela Young
Pamela says, "I just love this background piece and I knew I wanted to use it for a fun layout. I had these pictures of us playing a dice game called Farkel and knew it was perfect for this paper line. The little girl with the crown on her head was perfect for my queen layout."
Child's Play by Sarah Mullanix
Sarah says, "I was completely inspired by the beautiful mix of patterns and colors in the CHILDISH THINGS collection along with the fun and adorable accents! I am one of those people that love to mix red and pink, so I knew that I wanted to create a layout using the soft distressed pink solid and the lovely red gingham. By creating a banner using a corner punch for the decorative tips, using fun pom-pom trim, and and various accents cut from the pattern paper, this was the perfect mix for a couple of fun photos from my son's first birthday party!
