Leanne | Good Fellows Layout...

Hello Sassy Friends! It's Leanne here today, sharing another fun layout created from the Fancy Pants Designs collection | Good Fellows. I've been happily playing with the mini paper pad in particular this month and this layout is no exception. Check out what I've created with the left over bits and pieces of my kit. Today, I've focused on the title.

"Life As A Boy"

To create this title, I've used my Silhouette Portrait (or Cameo) to cut simple alphabet letters. The font I used was Arial Unicode MS. To make the letters wider I used the off set tool in the silhouette software.

Next I cut strips of patterned paper in various widths.

Using an off cut of cardstock, big enough to adhere to the back of the layout and cover the negative space of the silhouette cut file, I started adhering the strips of paper on an angle.

Finally, the excess paper strips are trimmed and the diagonal paper strip block is placed behind the cut file.

The remainder of the layout came together quite quickly, documenting boys and face paint antics! Thanks for visiting and don't forget all the product used here today, can be found in the shop..x

Agnus | Project Life Fancy Pants 'Life is Beautiful'

Hi again :) I have some new project life pages to share, which are centered around the 'Life is Beautiful' Collection from Fancy Pants.

 I chose to use 12 x 12" papers for this spread, however there is also a 6x6" paper pad available from the same collection.

As always, I began the week with a custom made title card that I created with several die-cut layers from the ephemera pack teamed with some fun puffy stickers and new puffy dots. I printed the date onto a cardstock strip and used a Kaisercraft Captured Moments stamp set for extra detail.


I used printed journal strips for all my journaling this week, and loved how the cute puffy dots and stickers allowed me to add little pops of colour between the journaling. 

I love the corrugated paper Fancy Pants have added to each of their new collections, and thought the lovely coral colour would make a great background for a filler card, however when I added my layers the coral seemed a bit too strong in colour so I used a dry brush with a little bit of white acrylic paint to slightly tone down the colour and was very pleased with the white wash effect this created. 

I couldn't wait to use the gorgeous Felicity vellum this week, and backed it onto plain white cardstock so that all of the lovely gold foil detail would stand out. I flicked on a few drops of Citron Color Shine and love the way it appears to float over the vellum.

Moving onto the second part of the week, and you can see that I have repeated some of the same patterns and colours across both pages. I often use this technique to create a nice flow from page to page. 

Cinema tickets and other memorabilia are always great for recording events where you don't have a photo, and the leaf and floral prints seemed to be perfect for the Jungle Book movie.

Once again I utilised the Captured Moments stamp set for another filler card, and simple repeated the stamped saying across the card before adding a few stickers and die cuts to dress it up.

Leanne | Good Fellows Layout...

Happy Friday Friends! It's Leanne here to day to share with you, another creative project using the new Fancy Pants Good Fellows collection! Today I've put together a simple 8.5x11 scrapbook page using the Good Fellows 6x6 mini paper pad. Of course, I've used other fun coordinating embellishments from the collection to help colour match and enhance the story, but the strips of paper on this layout have been disguised to work as a larger piece than it was intended for! If that makes sense! *grin*

Here's what I created... 

"Happy Cake Day"

I am loving the versatility with this paper collection. And, it's definite masculine appeal doesn't have to be restricted to the humble Father's Day project. For this page, I've created a birthday theme. Something to celebrate the boys!

As already mentioned, the paper strips have been trimmed from the mini paper pad. The join has been hidden beneath the photo and the die cut ephemera paper pieces.  

The paper fringe (something that is trending right now) was also created from the mini paper pad. To recreate this look yourself, trim a 2x6 paper strip and score a line down the middle length. Using your scissors, snip intervals of paper up to the score line, along the length. Slip the uncut edge beneath another paper strip.

To add depth to some of the die cut clusters, mount one or two piece with foam tape.

Complete your layout by creating your own kraft tag (kraft paper found in the mini paper pad) and type/journal the details on it to slip beneath your photo. The silver foil paper has been used with a Big Shot die and added as part of the title alphas.

Thanks for visiting. I hope this page has helped inspire you to not overlook the mini paper pads and the number of different projects you can use them for..x
