2 more w/ Fancy Pants

Remember this kit?

Here are 2 more layouts I made with it:

With those bold patterns it was easier to use them in little bits. So I used the back of one of the papers and then trimmed the strips out of another.

Add a little bit of ribbon and a double mat for the photo

A little more embellishment and journaling and you're done.
Here's the other layout I made:

I used mists and a stencil for the background.

Here I cut those arrows out of the same bold pattern paper I used on the last page, but then I repaired the pieces with like colors to form these arrows.

I distressed the edges of my photos to help them stand out against the mat more

A few stickers to embellish and then I used these word stickers in place of journaling.

Hope you have a scrappy day!

Preschool lo w/ Moxxie & NAS

 Good Monday to ya!
Are you excited for a week full of fun and spooky things?
I know I am. I love Halloween and all things spooky, scary and a little bit morbid. I will take full advantage of this week to watch every scary movie I can get away with. 
Oh and my little man and I will watch all the Curious George Halloween specials we can stand! lol

But today, I have fun and cute for you:

I used this week's NAS sketch for this. See many fun examples here.

A bit of fussy cutting goes a long way. I love to layer this cute things over elements on my page, especially photos.

I love these cute banners from the Moxxie Brainiac line!

Pop up your title for a bit of fun.

Happy scrapping!

2 layouts w/ Fancy Pants

I got this bright kit from Memorable Seasons:

And the backs:

Luckily I had some leftover Fancy Pants Trendsetter I could use in combination with this and here are 2 of the layouts I came up with:

My littlest guy is so much fun! He's always got me cracking up and he loves getting his picture taken.

I did a lot of ink distressing and outlining of sticker elements to help them pop off the page.

I enjoy clustering elements to lead the eye.

These mistable shapes were a lot of fun. I just started laying them out until I like the look of them but I inked the edges with brown first. It kind of gave them a roasted marshmallow feel.

When I first saw this large envelope in my kit, I was really wishing I had a patterned paper like that. So I cute the envelope up and used it as a background strip, making the closure a fun element.

Next up I have this layout:

All of the bold pattern papers in the kit were a bit of challenge. So I did a lot of cutting and here I misted them to help them blend together on my layout.

Here I used those mistable shapes to make a fun flower embellishment.

Another of those pretty envelopes.

This time with a couple tags tucked in with journaling.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love w/ Fancy Pants

Have you entered this fun Halloween challenge?

I quick layout with Fancy Pants today:

A few fun layers, arrows to guide the eye to a bright glittery title.

I love sprinkling the punched stars on the layout.

Fun and simple design. Just take a fun photo, layer a few papers and then sprinkle on some embellies.
Have fun creating!

Beware w/ Moxxie & Let's Get Sketchy

Did you know that Moxxie is sponsoring Let's Get Sketchy?
And I got to play along!

They gave us this sketch:

I used the awesome Zombie Attack line that Moxxie has donated to one of their lucky winners!

And this is what I made:

I am having SO much fun working with this line!!
First I played with this photo in photoshop, then I distressed the edges and used my scissors to make scratches on it.
As you can see I turned the sketch on its side to fit the orientation of my photo, then I layered papers and used the barcode strips to create the longest strip under the photo. Splash some mist on the layers for the fun, creepy look.

Layer stickers and outline them with a black pen to make them pop off the page.

I did a lot of distressing on all of my papers and then used a bark ink to "dirty" up the white edge that was revealed. Last I used this combination of stickers for my title area.

This line is AWESOME! You can play along with Let's Get Sketchy this month for a chance to win it AND you can join us on the Moxxie blog for another chance.
Thanks for stopping by!
