Fancy Pants Designs-True Friend Layout

We love to eat around here! Featuring a layout about our love for all things on a bun. :P
This is Fancy Pants Designs-True Friend Collection. So happy to finally cut into these playful and fun papers!

I have been itching to use the sheet with the adorable foxes and owls and I think they are beavers?  But it such a busy pattern and I couldn't figure out how I could use this playful sheet with any of my photos. I finally remembered I had these sandwich photos and thought, why not!

I used an 8.5x11 kraft sheet to house the photos. I used my Zutterbinder to make a notebook edge and I also used my Martha Stewart score board to make random embossed lines on the sheet. And because I was on a roll, I added some orange paint streaks. It was a colorful day in the craft room!

I love the tags from the collection and thought they would be perfect stacked at the bottom. I know hoagies are the "big deal". :)

I also scored lines around the teal corner piece and the geometric banner under the photos. I really like the extra pop the embossed lines created.

Hope you are able to find some hoagie love today!  
Happy Friday!! ~ Tisha

Crate Paper-Craft Market & Maggie Holmes Layout

So happy Spring is really here and along with it, a new box of goodies!! So excited to play with my NEW Craft Market and Maggie Holmes lovelies.  This layout started before I came down with a horrible head and was finished while I was on a horrible head cold. At first I thought I went a little over the top. But now I am thinking, it is what I do sometimes. :p

I absolutely had to use the Open Book paper with the large muted black stripes. It all started there. Then I decided I should use some of the Craft Market ephemera because there is a ton of pieces in that package. So I layered some elements popping out of the craft bag behind the photo. Later I decided that was too much paper, so I added in some wood elements to break up the monotony of all those paper pieces.

I used part of my precious piece of Craft Market glitter chevron burlap under the photo. Love this piece of burlap!! The burlap is adhered to a thin piece of craft paper. I suppose one is to leave it on, but I pulled it off as I wanted the burlap to have more flexibility and to fray a bit. 

I did use hot glue gun to adhere things on this page. Everything but the photo. First time using hot glue gun on a scrapbook page, I felt like a wild woman! I needed the glue gun to adhere the burlap since I had pulled the paper off the back of it. And just kept on using it for the rest of the page.

I had finally gotten the package of  Crate Paper gold glitter word thickers. I must say, I was a tad disappointed that the words had bare spots where the glitter came off. But maybe, I had high expectations since I had to wait so long to find these babies! 

Well, there she is! My over the top, glittered up, burlaped, embellished page!  
Have a wonderful Thursday!  ~Tisha

Fancy Pants Design- Burlap and Bouquets Layout

I am playing again with my Burlap and Bouquets collection. :)  I pulled out couple pictures to add to my sister's wedding album and thought this collection would go well with the photos. I love the soft earth tones with the beautiful floral patterns.

For my background, I did use the wood grain side of another Fancy Pants collection. But I love this piece of paper, I think it is part of a circus line? :)

I had to dress up the plain kraft bag with some  gold Art Anthology Modeling Paste using a stencil. I thought about adding another bow but it did not feel right, so I grabbed this butterfly clip, and perfect! I also decide to cut the 3x4 floral card into a tag shape.

I continued the flow of the modeling paste to the lower right corner and added my (brief) journaling with the tiny alpha stickers that came with the collection. 

And I can't say exactly why, but I love this tiny bow tied around the "document" sticker. It just touches my crafty heart. To add dimension to the burlap stickers, I adhered small pieces of scrap chipboard and then adhered to the vellum doily.

Wish all days could be this enjoyable, just playing with papers!  
Have a marvelous Thursday.  ~Tisha
