New way to Share your Photos – # 1

Posted in Craft Projects, Fancy Pants tagged , , , at 9:45 am by Michelle

I made a couple of these a few years ago as Christmas gifts… this year I decided to make a couple more, one for each of the girls.

Can you guess what it’s made of??? Would you believe records!! πŸ˜‰ Honest!!

Here’s a close up of each of the sections:

As you can see, I made it so that they can add their own photos & change them whenever they want!! πŸ™‚

If you use your imagination, there are all sorts of ways you could decorate these records! Give it a try, use your imagination & let me know how it turns out for you!!

Click “here” to see the second one I made…

Oh as for the size, in the past I have used the small records but for these ones, Β I used the 10 inch ones. If you don’t have any on hand, I’ve found that you can pick them up fairly cheaply from the thrift stores! πŸ™‚

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!! πŸ™‚

Summer Heat Wave

Posted in 2 page Layouts, Fancy Pants at 2:45 am by Michelle

A number of months ago, I won 2 tickets to go Whale Watching! We had to go before the end of October and with school just around the corner & honestly, who wants to go whale watching late September/October when it’s cold & rainy… Not US!! Β As Monday, August 29th was my flex day, Bruce & I finally went! Even though it was a nice sunny day, the water was rough & we were only able to find 1 whale… & lots of Sea Lions.

The paper I used in this layout is called “Beach Bum” by “Fancy Pants“.

I realize that the car with all the surf boards on the right hand side don’t really go with the “theme” of the page however, they do kinda go with the thin stripe piece of paper on the left side of the page! So it just ties everything together! Plus it fills in the space where nothing else did!! πŸ™‚

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!! πŸ™‚

Shell Seekers

I did something totally different when I created this layout… instead of starting with someone elses’ sketch, or even with paper…

  1. I took the pictures I wanted to use & decided which ones I could cut down to a smaller size.
  2. Organized the pics on cardstock, to creating a double page layout.
  3. Found some embellishments that went with the theme. I chose the “Beach Babe” paper embellishments from “Fancy Pants
  4. Now to find paper that would work with my layout. The matching Beach Babe paper that I had, just didn’t seem to work… that was until I took the “High Tide” paper & turned it sideways… So now I have a bit of a design in the bottom right hand corner of my large matt & the rest is all this pale yellow… kinda reminds me of sand!
  5. I trimmed the pics a little more so that they would all fit nicely.
  6. Β Finally I clued everything into place, adding pop dots to some of the embellishments in order to add some dimension!

Next time you create a layout, why not give this a try & let me know how it works out for you!

Till next time… Happy Scramping!! πŸ™‚
