Fancy Pants Trendsetter

Ange here today with Fancy Pants adorable Trendsetter line.
 I was recently able to attend the Original Scrapbook USA Expo in Sandy, UT. I had SO much fun while I was there! I can't wait to go back next spring. While I was there Kristin had stacks of product available for us to bring home to work with. There was so many awesome products! It made it hard to choose which pile to bring home with me. lol But when I saw Fancy Pants Trendsetter line I was sold. I LOVE this line and have been wanting to get my hands on it ever since they first started showing sneaks of it. So here is what I made with it:

Of course I had to find the perfect photo to go along with such a fun line & this 'Ladies This Way' die-cut was a big help in directing the course of this layout. This is my youngest being his charming little self last summer, while practicing his wink. We went out to see the solar eclipse and it created the most awesome soft light, so of course I brought out the camera. Other than enlarging this to a 5x7 I didn't do any editing to this photo.

But I did a lot to this tag pp! I loved the look of it and thought it would be so cool to use strips of tags on my lo. So the first strip I cut off the bottom of the paper. That strip was only part of the tags so I used it along the bottom of my lo, right above a Tape Sticker strip.

The second strip I used along the edge of my photo. For both strips I cut the triangles out between each tag and then bent them along their edges to ink them, giving them individual dimension, w/o having to cut them all apart. With these ones I punched out the holes and added red twine and string from the tags of a recent clothing purchase.

For the title area I layered different pp's and the postcard die-cut, then used the alphas from the sticker sheet to create my cute title. Anyone else hear Joey Tribbiani's voice when they read that? lol
I used a pop dot for the Rock Star sticker added the star strip below and then added the 2 as an afterthought. I often overlook using larger #'s because I tend to add dates small and under my journaling, so I thought this would be a fun way to add in the cute starred 2.

The final touches were mostly from the button set. I used the star and the banners, along with some twine and then made my own flag with a toothpick from my cupboard and some more of the fun stickers.

This is a super cute line! I hope you enjoyed what I did with it.
Thanks! Ange
