Gearing up for summer fun...

Hey hey everyone!

Man, what a crazy few months it's been.

And while things (at least in Illinois) are still very far from "normal," we're doing our best to make this summer fun & relaxing.

Next week, our state is scheduled to head into Phase 4 of our reopening plan, which means that gatherings of up to 50 people will be ok...and we plan on taking advantage of this asap.

I created these simple little invitations with Fancy Pants Designs Vitamin Sea Collection...and I can't wait to get them in the mail to all of our friends!


Honestly, these came together in like 15 minutes.


All I did was take a sheet of patterned paper from the collection's 6x8 paper pad, trimmed it down just a bit, adhered it to a piece of white cardstock, and added my embellishments.


I used Glue Dots Pop Up Dots to give each invitation a little dimension, and I love how they turned out!


I think this one is my favorite.

As soon as we have a definite plan, I'll just jot down the date & time on the back of each card and into the mail they'll go!

I gotta tell ya...I can't wait.

How about you?

What are your summer plans looking like?

From my TN...Delish | Fancy Pants Designs

It's Friday!

Although I'm not sure that really means too much these days...😜

Today I'm sharing a traveler's notebook spread I created for Foundations Decor/Fancy Pants Designs...


I created this spread using the new Cherry On Top Collection and I am LOVING these colors!

A Cherry On Top 6x8 Paper Pad
I started these pages by finding a piece of patterned paper that I thought worked well with my photo.

I love using these 6x8 paper pads in my notebook spreads, because I need to do very little trimming and the design motifs are smaller than they are on the 12x12 papers.
A Cherry On Top Ephemera

I grabbed a few pieces of ephemera for this darling pack...

A Cherry On Top Tags
...and a tag from this pack, and added them to my page.
A Cherry On Top Felt Pieces

And then I finished up this side with a few felt letters and a few journaling strips.


**TIP: When placing pieces of ephemera or other embellishments close together, tuck pieces behind each other and/or layer them to add visual interest to your pages**

Summer Layout | Fancy Pants Designs

 Happy Tuesday!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created for Foundations Decor/Fancy Pants Designs...


This layout was SO FUN to put together...and it definitely has me longing for warm summer days spent with friends...



One of my favorite things about this layout is the background...is that weird?

Probably.

This is the paper I used...


I know, I know...this probably doesn't look like the perfect background paper...but it works perfectly for this layout. When topped with the other background papers, it creates this cool colorblock look I love.

I took another sheet of this same design...cut it down a bit...and used the "B" side as the next layer of my background.

Then I cut down a sheet a white cardstock to make the final layer of my background.

I added my photo and then began layering ephemera & tags.

I played around with things quite a bit before I decided on a design I really love...





I added a few journaling strips & some puffy dots, and then I stamped the PERFECT ink splotches exactly where I wanted them.


**TIP: Use adhesive dots to adhere layers to your page. 
This will give your embellishments depth and will add visual interest**



I love all of the layers in this page...and I hope I've inspired you to use some fun layering on your next page.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
