Hi there Fancy Pants fans! I'm so excited to be here with you as this month's Guest Designer. I was lucky enough to receive the Childish Things and Wave Searcher lines to work with. Here are a few things that I came up with...
I love the vintage childhood feel of Childish Things. It reminded me of my own childhood with a touch of whimsy and splash of color. I added a rectangular piece of denim fabric to the layout adding texture and more a boy feel to the layout. I cut the edge with pinking shears to mimic the edge in the filter. The patterned papers layered perfectly together and were a great spot for embellishment, a title and my journaling. The Wave Searcher line with it's dark browns and oranges was perfect for these beach photos. I created the sunburst photo frame for a special photo and added the title with my Silhouette. By layering the piece with pop dots, I was able to create a shadowbox effect. Filling it with buttons was fun and adds texture. Some stitching and layers of paper complete the page.
This little book of pockets was made to hold special photos and memories from a recent trip. The cover was created by using the journaling card sheets and simply folding and gluing 3 of them together.
The inside library pockets were cut with a Silhouette and decorated with chipboard, stickers and some simple twine. The entire book is held together with a beautiful ribbon from the Wave Searcher line.
The Childish Things layout is the perfect combination of retro and bright color. I paired it with some denim fabric (cut with pinking shears to match the filters) for a boyish feel.
I layered many different patterns from the Childish Things line to embellish, journal and add splashes of color to the layout. The filters added the perfect whimsical touch without overpowering the photos. My favorite part - the rainbow stripe pattern!
