Had a play with the new Fancy Pants Millie & June collection this week. Fabulous, vibrant colours with pops of gold in this funky collection.
I've created a mixed media background on plain white cardstock using Distress Ink spray and Heidi Swapp Colorshine for the gold highlights. Once dry I have added my paper layers then added some extra detail with dark pink stamping.
My title is this gorgeous glitterly gold Shine thicker. I've used some CVS wood veneers and a Flutterby Designs flair.
On this side of my page I've added some 2 crafty chipboard which I have inked then added some sploshes of the gold Colorshine before finishing off with a cluster of flowers and a wood veneer heart.

Today I have my second share using the gorgeous collection by Fancy Pants, Life is Beautiful.
Again I have used the floral papers with bright splashes of pink and yellow but I have used the wood grain background paper which gives it a different feel.
Teenagers can be hard to scrap as they seem to dislike photos taken by mum and therefore they can be few and far between. I always have my camera on the ready for those moments I can just snap away and get great shots like this.
With three sons I love the opportunity to scrap girly layouts that are pretty/floral and that is what I wanted to create here.
Layering elements is the key to this layout. Here I have take a simple tab foam taped a die cut heart, adding an enamel dot and then sewed to add texture.
I have done the same here with another tab but have added a brad and finished again with sewing.
I have sewn randomly on this layout to add texture, like on the die cut leaves.
I have layered the die cut flowers and finished this element off with a puffy word sticker.
The flairs in this collection are just lovely and slightly over sized (in comparison to a standard flair) which allows you to place a single element.
Well thats it for today and I hope you have liked the last two layouts using this collection and even though they are both floral they are completely different.
Last weeks layout using the same collection.
This weeks layout.
Thank you for stopping by today and next week I have a boy layout to change things up but again I have set myself the challenge of scrapping my teenager, this time my son.
Today I am sharing a layout created with the beautiful Love Always collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. The most gorgeous papers in lovely tones, complimented with the best range of co-ordinating embellishments.
For this page I decided to create a soft background using my gelatos as a watercolour on the background paper. Once dry I've layered up some of the patterned papers and co-ordinating ephemera before finishing the page off with some gorgeous wood veneers.

Today I am working with the gorgeous collection Life is Beautiful and it is indeed beautiful. I love the quality feel of their papers and their embellishments are always plentiful.
Recently I had some professional photos taken and I have used a stunning one of my daughter and hence my choice of going super girly with the stunning floral papers.
This layout is all about layering and with the ephemera pack you are spoilt for choice.
As a feature of my background paper I have used the dark floral paper to contrast against the black and white stripes. I have sewn on them to add definition.
I chose the turquoise paper to mat my photo for a contrast against the florals.
I then chose the white floral paper and used a strip to start layering on. There are some lovely tags to chose from but in keeping with my theme I chose a floral one to layer behind my photo.
I then used the floral die cut frame which I attached with foam tape and added the typewriter die cut over it and the floral flair under it.
I then foam taped other elements such as my title, 'Be Happy' die cut and butterfly. I then punched a small flower circle from the white floral paper and attached to the left of my photo to add interest.
I finished this layout off with some enamel hearts and dots.
Thank you for stopping by today and do head over to the shop to see this gorgeous collection up close.
