Product Spotlight: Delight Bubbles

This week's spotlight is on our Bubbles patterned paper from the Delight collection. I love the bright, colorful circles on the front and if that weren't enough, there is a lovely blue pattern on the other side!

Because by Allison Davis
Allison beautifully used the blue side of the paper for this cool vertical layout. Notice how she has really worked the patterned paper just by simply adding buttons to the printed circles.

Ma by Anne Jo Lexander
Anne used the bright pattern as the background for her lovely page.

Baby Sign by Staci Taylor
I love that Staci cut circles from the paper and added them to her layout. Notice how she curled the edges of the circles so they don't lay flat on her layout. A very nice detail that adds so much dimension!

Product Spotlight: Daily Grind Printed Chipboard Shapes

I'm in love with this week's spotlight product! The Daily Grind Printed Chipboard Shapes. Are these the coolest? I love all of the fun shapes for journaling on, the flourishes, pretty flowers, wings, hearts and there's even a cute little frog ... all of which make this chipboard set super versatile. AND they're self adhesive!

Check out they ways our designers used this great product.

Start Everyday by Ronda Palazzari (HelpMeRonda)
Lots of goodness to look at on Ronda's layout. She used the "everyday" and some flowers and hearts from the set to create this page about her everyday goals.

This Life by Staci Taylor (stacitaylor)
Here's Staci again using one of the journaling spots on her layout to highlight her title in which she used the Daily Grind Printed Chipboard Alphas. What a fun and funky look.

Come and get to know our next designer in the spotlight ... Anne Jo Lexander (ania79).

Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants product?

A: Gawd. The papers play such a big role obviously, and I love the felt and the new mixed media books! And if I am allowed to play favorite I have to say I truly truly adore everything Michelle Coleman touches. Her colors and designs never fails to make my heart flutter! lol *blush*

Q: What is your favorite technique?
A: I love to crumple paper - and to get more texture and dimension by doing this or other things. Definitely a fan of 3-d and mixing up textures! Oh and using my sewing machine whenever I'm stuck usually works so well...

Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?

A: I started fall 05, which would make it approx three years plus by now.

Q: What kind of scrapper would you consider yourself to  be?
A: A jack of all trades - master of none ;p
I love to play with papers and play with various styles and just go down the road my current mood is telling me to go - don't we all?
Oh, and can I add messy? :p And laid back. Very laid back. Am definitely not one for rulers and stuff....

Q: What are some goals you have for yourself, scrap-related  or personal?
A: Just to have fun and enjoy the process.

Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: It's never one thing - it's a collaboration of so many things together- product, the photos, the stories.. sometimes more of one over the other - but usually it's a little bit of everything that I am working with for the moment being.

Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right  now, what would they find?
A: One word. Mess. Everywhere. Ok. That was two.

Q: What do you listen to or watch while  scrapbooking?
A: When I am alone I love listening to music - a little bit of this and that depending on my mood. Right now I totally adore Lenka :)  (and the graphics are sooo inspiring and cute too!)

Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and  where?
A: Either when I am alone or with my scrapbooking friends. Rarely when the family is at home.

Q: What type of camera do you use?
A: Nikon d700. Totally makes me happy. Also have an older body - d70s

Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
A: Photography - don't most scrapbookers do this? :) Have always been into mmorpgs and currently enjoy playing World of Warcraft. I love reading as well - with Neil Gaiman, Amalie Skram and Virginia Woolf as some of my all-time favorites.

Q: Share something quirky about yourself.
A: When I see scenes in movies where people are under water I tend to hold my breath too for as long as they are underwater (or I'm outta breath ;p).

Thanks Anne Jo!!! We're glad to get to know you better.

Product Spotlight: Say It Simple

This week we are spotlighting one of my favorite "must have" Fancy Pants products, the Say It Simple chipboard alphabet. I love the versatility of these raw chipboard letters. You can dress them up or leave them bare for a nice neutral tone. Plus they are a simple bold font that works well with most themes!

Beach Play by Greta Hammond
Greta added some white paint to the letters, allowing some of the chipboard color to show through. The perfect look for this fun beach layout!

Love Life by Brenda Hurd
For Brenda's title she painted the letters and then added a fun outline to each letter with a marker.

They Love U by Denine Zielinski
Denine chose to leave her letters "as is" for the perfect addition to her layout.

You could also try covering our Say It Simple alphas with glitter, microbeads, ink, patterned paper, rub-ons, embossing powder or fine art mediums.

Product Spotlight: Girl Phrases Rub ons

I'm a big fan of this week's product spotlight, Girl Phases Rub-ons. Having two little girls of my own, this is a sheet of rub-ons that will get LOTS of use. So many cute phases in such pretty, girlie fonts.

Check out how Ronda, Brenda and Anne Jo used these rub-ons that are "everything nice".

Designer Spotlight: Amy Peterman

It's time for another Designer Spotlight, and this week we have the very talented...

Amy Peterman

Q: What is your favorite Fancy Pants product?
A: If I had to pick one, I’d have to say I am in love with the new Mixed Media books (coming soon to 2Peas). I love how versatile they are.

Q: How long have you been scrapbooking?
A: 12 + years

Q: What are some goals you have for yourself, scrap-related or personal?
A: I’d love to author a scrapbook idea book some day and possibly design product. I also think it’d be cool to run a marathon someday and maybe teach art history.

Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: My kids, my home, online, magazines, other scrapbookers, and other crafts.

Q: If someone was to walk into your scrap room/area right now, what would they find?
A: A ten-foot work space (that my hubby built for me), covered with leftovers from my latest creation that I finished last night. I plan on cleaning it up today. I always like to have a clean surface when I’m ready to start the next project.

Q: What do you listen to or watch while scrapbooking?
A: I actually have a play list on my iPod called “scrapbooking mix”. On the list is “I’m Letting Go” by Francesca Battistelli, “One Step At A Time” by Jordan Sparks, and “Upside Down” by Trevor Morgan, to name a few...

Q: What time of day do you usually scrapbook and where?
A: Usually after my girlies go to bed, but sometimes I can squeeze in a little time during the day if Josie is napping and Hattie is in school, although, that’s a rare occasion.

Q: What type of camera do you use?
A: Canon Rebel XT

Q: What are some other hobbies you enjoy?
A: Knitting, quilting, and sewing

Q: Share something quirky about yourself.
A: It drives me nuts if my bed doesn’t get made every day. If it doesn’t get made because I’m the first one up and have been away from home all day, I will make the bed right before I go to bed.

Thanks Amy for letting us get to know you a little better!
