Hello everyone. I’m Ronda Palazzari and I am back today, this time as a Guest Designer. I love Fancy Pants Designs so I am very happy to be here. I was thrilled to work with two of Fancy Pants Designs New lines Childish Things and Be You. Today, I am sharing with you a couple layouts, a card, and a tag using these versatile lines.
My first layout is called You Found You. Be You was the perfect combination for this layout. My niece recently got married to her prince which brought back memories of watching her grow up. It reminded me of her search to find herself. Recently she has really found out who she is and who she wants to be. She was positively glowing at her wedding. Not only did this paper line match my theme for this page, it also matched her colors for the wedding, pale yellow and grey.
I used the rub-ons on the chipboard to emphasize the story. For extra pops of color, I used the tiny buttons around the photo.
This Heart card was a breeze to complete. I knew I had to use the flock transparency for card front. I attached it to the cute hide & seek paper wanting that green to show through the hearts. I attached the ribbon using my sewing machine to create the ruffle. For the finishing touches I add the glittery die cut and chipboard title. Easy Peasy!
The circle layout uses Childish Things. My sweet nephew Felix turns one in a matter of days. I cannot believe how fast he is growing up. It made me think of the day he arrived and the happiness he has brought to my brother & sister-in-law. The line was a perfect fit for this photo.
I used bits and pieces from the chipboard, rub-ons, and sticker sheets. I love that big red ribbon but didn’t want it overpowering the page so I scrunched it up and stitched it down. I had to have that big button right next to it! To complete the page I journaled in a circle around the picture framing the focus of the story.
This last piece is a mixed media tag using Be You as inspiration. I love the colors and the funkiness of the rub-ons so I used them to guide my design.
I used old book pages on a tag and colored the background using watercolor crayons and spray mist. Next I added a black outline to the tag using oil pastel. I then layered the rub-ons with the chipboard pieces. A simple baker’s twine bow completes the artsy tag.
Thanks for joining me today on my Fancy adventure. I had fun playing with all of the wonderful supplies and showing the versatility of their products. Fancy Pants always has a special place in my heart as it was my first design team. I will always be a Fancy girl!
