An Introduction: Fancy Pants Designs

Hi everyone.  I hope you're having a good week so far. We are still in birthday mode over here. Cory turned 4 and is determined to have a week-long celebration.  He makes a "cake" every day with his Legos and urges me to make a real one, light the candles and sing to him.  I have indulged him more than once, I will admit. 

Today feels like a little celebration for me too. I have my first layout up on the Fancy Pants Designs blog!  I'm so excited to be part of this design team. 

Here are a few close-ups of my page. 

These pennants are part of a die cut sheet from the Park Bench collection. Just punch them out and stick them on. Easy!  I thought it was fun to layer them and curl the edges a bit. 

All the new Fancy Pants collections from Winter CHA have these cute bitty bags with different designs. I tucked one under my photo and used it as a pocket for a journaling tag.  I usually made my own hidden pocket under photos and sometimes the journaling tag gets stuck in the glue. I love this solution with the bitty bag. No more stuck tags!

My favorite Fancy Pants product might be the stencils.  A few come in each pack and they have different quotes or icons. You can use the stencils as a mask or attach them to your page.  I backed mine with paper, added a few banner stickers and stitched it to my layout. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. You can see all team's introductions on the Fancy Pants Designs blog.
