Tombow Blog Hop : Day 4

GuiseppaGublerFramed
I was super excited to learn that Fancy Pants was teaming up with Tombow. I love to be challenged to try new things and believe me ... this was a new challenge. I most certainly know how to use adhesives, but the Dual Brush Pens were a different story. The adhesives were excellent. I love how they held my projects together. The pens were a new adventure and I am happy that I got to play and learn how to use the Dual Brush Pens. After much doodling and playing around with these fabulous pens ... I came up with the following projects. Thanks Tombow!

Not So Spooky

Supplies used:
Oct. 31: Spooks patterned paper
Oct. 31: Bewitched patterned paper
Oct. 31: Strips patterned paper
Oct. 31: Shadows patterned paper
Oct. 31: Trim
Oct. 31: Buttons
Oct. 31: Design Embellishments
Tombow Stamp Runner
Tombow Jewel Dual Brush Pens
Tombow 3D Foam Tabs
Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs

On this crazy layout of our family's Halloween costumes, I used quite a few of the Tombow brush pens. I decided to create some fun embellishments using the pens as well as paper the Oct. 31 Collection. I had to mess around a bit with the pens to decide how I wanted my flourishes to look.

Guiseppa gubler october tombow blog hop6

After I got the design down, I colored them in and traced them in black, to make them stand out and then cut them out.  When I placed them on my layout, I popped them up using the 3D Foam Tabs. This was a no brainer for me since I love to pop everything up. I also created the title using the brush pens and adding purple and orange to the black letters to make the title stand out more. Again, I popped up the title using 3D Foam Tabs.

Guiseppa gubler october tombow blog hop7

As, you can see on the layout, I did some tracing and doodling around the picture and other embellishments. To adhere everything else, I used the Stamp Runner and Power Adhesive Tabs.

Too Cute To Spook

Supplies Used:
Oct. 31: Night patterned paper
Oct. 31: Jack-O-Lantern patterned paper
Oct. 31: Strips patterned paper
Oct. 31: Filter Paper
Oct. 31: Buttons
Oct. 31: Stickers
Oct. 31: Design Embellishments
Oct. 31: Chipboard Banners
Oct. 31: Alpha Stickers
Oct. 31: Rub-ons
Oct. 31: Trim
Tombow Stamp Runner
Tombow Jewel Dual Brush Pens
Tombow 3D Foam Tabs
Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs

Aren't these girls just so stinking cute? I wanted everything to stand out on this layout, highlighting Blayke and London in their cute Halloween costumes. I popped up their pictures using 3D Foam Tabs and backed them on some of the paper from the Oct. 31 collection.

Guiseppa gubler october tombow blog hop2

I then outlined the picture using the Black Dual Brush Pen. I added a bit of black on the boarders underneath the pictures using the Black Dual Brush Pen. I used the brush tip side of the marker to give it an inked on feel. I also inked the edges of the Filter Papers from the Oct. 31 Collection. Once again, this gave the effect of an inked on look.  See the cute little hearts in the center of the filter embellishment?

Guiseppa gubler october tombow blog hop3

I made those using the brush tip end of the Dual Brush Pens. So easy to do. I watched the tutorial on You Tube under Tombow. I then popped those cute hearts up by using 3D Foam Adhesive. I wanted a boarder around my whole layout so I drew a line, using a ruler, using the Black Dual Brush Pen.

Guiseppa gubler october tombow blog hop4

I created the title and journaling using the same pen. I added 3D Foam Tabs to the "Spook" part of the layout to make it stand out. To adhere everything else on my layout, I used the Stamp Runner. Wonderful adhesive might I add ... really stuck well to my project!

Tombow Blog Hop: Day 3

SuzanneSergiFramed
I am a big fan of Towbow products, and now I have found my new go-to tape runner, the Stamp Runner Permanent Adhesive. I used this adhesive on both pages, and love that it can now act as my paper adhesive, and replace my glue dots at the same time. So comfortable to use, and easy to use!  To be honest, I also loved it's design!

On the following page, I used the Fastener Tabs to create an envelope to tuck in my journaling. They are ultra strong, and can be pulled apart, time and time again. A perfect solution to seal envelopes, gift bags, journaling pockets! I was introduced to these last year, and was already a fan. I use these frequently, especially in mini albums.

SuzanneSergiTowbowFancy

On my next page, I used Towbow's Dual Brush Pens. They are perfect for coloring in images, or for journaling. They have two different size tips, so you can decide what you need for your project. On this page, I used it to simply ink my skeleton stamp on various places on my page. Sometimes, I do not seem to have the right color in an ink pad, but with the assortment of color choices with the markers, I am covered. Easy to apply, and the image comes out perfect.

Tombow Blog Hop: Day 1

AmyPetermanFramed
Happy Monday everyone! We have a fun week planned for you with a blog hop with Tombow!

Everyday this week we'll have some great projects, created by our Pocket Chicks, using Fancy Pants and Tombow products!

Today, I get to share my projects with you. I absolutely loved working with Tombow's adhesives and markers. Take a look.

AmyPeterman_Preschool

For this project, I used lots of the fun Off To School collection and a fun technique using Tombow's Dual Brush Pens to create my star accent.

To create your own star, here is what you'll need:
Artist Edition: Filter Embellishment
Artist Edition: Chipboard Alphas (leftover background)
Tombow Dual Brush Pens
Canned Air
Scissors
Sewing Machine

First, lay out your Filter Embellishment on a scrap piece of paper to catch any overspray (this technique is messy fun!). Then, lay down your leftover background from the Chipboard Alphas (or anything you want to use as a mask).

StarStep1

Using the canned air and one of the pens, spray the air over the brush tip end of the pen to splatter color onto the Filter Embellishment. (Check out this video, for a better description on how this is done).

StarStep2

Repeat with as many colors as you like, then remove your mask. Ta-da!

StarStep3

Next, hand draw a star on the back of the Filter Embellishment and cut.

StarStep4
StarStep5

Stitch the star onto your desired background (I stitched an Off To School Filter Embellishment onto a carstock circle, and then stitched my star onto it). Wah-la!

StarStep6

 

For my next project, I focused on Tombow's amazing adhesives! This is a doodle book for my oldest daughter, who LOVES to draw (Hmmm, I wonder where she got that from?).

AmyPeterman_DoodleBook

Here are the supplies I used:
Summer's End: Mother Earth patterned paper
Summer's End: Windy Day patterned paper
Summer's End: Rub-ons
Off To School: Rub-ons
Off To School: Glitter Cuts
Off To School Ribbon:
Tombow Dual Brush Pens
Tombow Power Tabs
Tombow Hook & Loop Tabs
Tombow Stamp Runner
blank journal
paint
sewing machine

Here's how I made this little book:
I adhered some of the Summer's End patterend papers to the of my blank journal book, using Tombow's Stamp Runner.

BookStep1

I ended up needing two sheets of patterned paper to cover the front and back (I just overlapped them on the back of the journal), leaving the excess to create the flap that will wrap around the front.
 
BookStep2

To create a curved flap, I simply traced one of our dinner plates and cut on the line.

BookStep3
BookStep4
BookStep5

For an artsy twist (after all this is a doodle book), I painted the inside flap with white acrylic paint. I then stitched the edge and stitched a loop of ribbon in place, to help with opening and closing the flap.

BookStep6

To attatch the Glitter Cut star and button, I used Tombow's Power Tabs. I wanted to use a super strong adhesive, since there will be a lot of tugging on this part of the book. The Power Tabs were perfect for this.

BookStep7

I also needed something to secure my flap, so I used Tombow's Hook & Loop Tabs ... perfect!

BookStep8
BookStep9

I finished off the cover with rub-ons and some doodling using Tombow's Dual Brush Pens again. Those pens are great for blending colors together and creating sweet little accents (like my little flower, done with the brush end of the pen!).

BookStep10

I hope you've gotten some great ideas today. Remember to come back everyday this week and visit the Tombow blog for even more great ideas!

Tombow Blog Hop: Day 2

GretaHammondFramed

Hey everyone! Stopping by with my Oct. 31 projects using Tombow adhesives! There is no substitute for the right adhesives and Tombow has a good variety for all of your gluing needs! I used several different adhesives for different purposes on my projects below. Come take a look!
Greta Hammond Tombow Halloween 1 web
 
Supplies used:
Oct. 31: patterned paper
Oct. 31: Alpha stickers
Oct. 31: Chipboard
Oct. 31: Chipboard banners
Oct. 31: buttons
Oct. 31: Design Embellishments
Oct. 31: Filter Paper Embellishments
Oct. 31: Element Stickers
Tombow Power Bond Adhesive
Tombow Permanent Dot Adhesive
Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs
Tombow Dual Brush Pens Grunge
Tombow 3D Foam Tabs
 
To start this project, I cut papers to fit onto a paper mache box. I used the Tombow Power Bond Adhesive to adhere them onto the box. I then traced and cut out papers onto the wood haunted house. I adhered them to the wood house with the Tombow Power Bond Adhesive. I used the Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs to adhere the house to the front of the box. I decorated the front with chipboard pieces and design embellishments.

For the inside of the box, I added shredded black paper and faux candy. I made the faux candy bars by wrapping chipboard rectangles with foil and then covering them with paper using the Tombow Permanent Dot Adhesive. I made faux candy suckers by layering punched circles and filter papers and using Tombow 3D Foam Tabs to add a bit of dimension between the layers. The other candy pieces are rolled up paper with folded, fanned filter paper stuck in the ends attached with Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs. I also used the Tombow Pens to add a bit of detail around the house and box.

Oct. 31: Ribbon
Oct. 31: buttons
Tombow Power Bond Adhesive
Tombow Permanent Dot Adhesive
Tombow Power Adhesive Tabs
Tombow Dual Brush Pens Grunge
Tombow 3D Foam Tabs
 
To make this door hanger, I traced and cut paper to fit the hanger and then adhered it with Tombow Power Bond Adhesive. I used the Tombow black brush pen to add faux stitch marks around the edge of the hanger. I added the bracket Design embellishment to the hanger with the 3D Foam Tabs.

Greta Hammond Tombow Halloween 5 web

To make the open and closed signs removable, I added the top piece of the Hook & Loop tabs to the “open” and “closed” signs and one bottom piece to the hanger. This way, we can choose whether we are open or closed for trick or treating!

1 Product, 2 Ways: Oct. 31 Elements Stickers

LisaSaundersFramed
I’ve been creating with the Element Stickers from the Oct. 31 line this week. I love finding different ways of using the same product. So when I got asked to use the Element Stickers in 2 ways I knew instantly what I was going to do.
I really have used the one product in 2 ways.

 

 

 

 

SBC_fp-1299

First of all I made this LO here.


Lisa Saunders - Haunted House
 
I’ve used the patterned papers from the October 31 line as my base. I wanted to use the Element Stickers but give them a bit of life. Stickers are great, but can appear flat sometimes. So I’ve stuck these on to black card and then cut around to show a black edge. Some of the stickers I’ve just stuck down using double sided tape and some of them with 3d foam tape. I like seeing the variation of heights. You can see a close up here. The stickers now pop!

Lisa Saunders - Haunted House Close Up
 
 Now I am left with a sticker sheet looking like this.
 
Lisa Saunders - Haunted House Stickers

There are empty spaces where I have used some of the stickers on my first project. It’s the empty spaces that I’m now going to use on my next LO.

I have carefully cut around the used stickers. You can see the outline of where the sticker has been removed. This is where I have cut and this then gives me a new sticker. I’ve lightly placed this sticker onto the LO and then misted over it. The sticker can then be lifted and you are then left with this effect. They make perfect masks for misting.

Lisa Saunders - Thumbs Up close 2
 
I used some of the stickers from the ‘off to school’ collection. I separated these banners, stuck them onto white card and cut them out. By punching two holes into each flag I’ve been able to thread some twine through and turn them into a string of bunting. They’ve been stuck down with 3d foam tape.

Lisa Saunders - Haunted House Stickers.2
 
I also used a part on the scalloped edge border sticker to stick on the page and mist over. This gives a great effect. The sticker can still be used. I ended up using it on the bottom of the first LO above. The mist has given it a great shimmery look.
Here is the finished LO.

Lisa Saunders - Thumbs Up

It really is possible to use the one sheet of Element Stickers in 2 ways : )

Tombow Blog Hop: Day 5

LisaAndrewsFramed

 

Of course, Halloween candy can be appealing on it's own, but why not make it a bit more fancy with the Oct. 31 paper line and embellishments? With the help of several adhesives from Tombow, these two Halloween candy projects came together quickly.

 

 

 

 

Halloween Party Favors

FP6_Oct28_Landrews

These party favor bags are a great size for filling with candy or a small gift for guests attending a party. You could also put each of the guests' names on the bags and have them double as place cards and party favors.

Instructions:
1. Cut the mini bag from patterned paper with a die cutting machine. If you don't have a die cutting machine, you could duplicate with small paper bags.
2. Secure edges of bag shut with Tombow Power Tabs.
3. Use Tombow Fastener Tabs to hold the flap of the bag closed.

FP2_Oct28_LandrewsFP_Oct28_Landrews

4. Embellish bags with Fancy Pants Designs rub-ons, design embellishments and glitter cuts. Use Tombow Foam Tabs to adhere some of the embellishments for a more dimensional look.

 

Embellished Candy Bars

FP_candy1

Instructions:
1. Trim paper to fit the width of the fun size and mini candy bars.
2. Trim the paper so that it is long enough to wrap around the candy bar.
FP_candy2

3. Use the Tombow Power Tabs to hold the paper wrapped around the candy bar. No need for glue because these tabs are very strong and won't let the paper come undone.

FP_candy3

3. Embellish with Fancy Pants Designs Oct. 31 rub-ons, ribbon, stickers, chipboard and glitter cuts. I used the Tombow Mono Adhesive Power Bond to attach the embellishments plus some Tombow Foam Tabs to pop a few elements up and add dimension.

FP_candy5

4. Display the fancy candy bars in jars or candy dish.

Product Spotlight: Oct. 31 Chipboard Elements and Chipboard Banners

AmyPetermanFramed
Are you in the mood for Halloween, yet? It's only a little over a week away. Here's some Product Spotlight inpsiration using our Oct. 31 Chipboard Elements and Chipboard Banners, to get you ready to create during this spooky season.

SBC_fp-1300

KWatson+Bat invasion
Bat Invasion by Kim Watson
Kim says, "Chipboard pieces are so great for layering, especially if you use an entire pack on one project mixed with patterned paper...KWatson+Bat invasion+cls#3

I added different heights of puff tape to the pieces giving the feeling of extra dimension & texture. Perfect for my 'batty' page."


Yukishimada_halloweenframe_Oct19
Halloween Frame by Yuki Shimada
Yuki says, "I made this frame using some Chipboard Elements and Chipboard Banners from the Oct.31 collection. They are really versatile. Not only for typical fun Halloween layouts but also for shabby chic ones. That’s why I love this collection so much!"

 

KatjaShalloweenDoorHanger
Boo! Door Hanger by Katja Schneider
Katja explains. "For this Product Spotlight I've decided to make a Door Hanger for my daughter's room. I've used both, the Chipboard elements and Chipboard banners. The Banners were layered on top of each other, I love the dimension that can be achieved by layering chipboard. Don't forget to use the little embellishments that come in the banner package. Here I've used the little hearts. I also love the Chipboard elements, the hat is just too cute!"

 

YukaHino_Little bit spooky
Lil Bit Spooky by Yuka Hino
Yuka sats, "Chipboard Elements added the feeling of vintage by cutting down with the sandpaper and jetting the mist. Moreover, I made a small banner by using the Chipboard Banners as a template. I am expressing depth in the layout by using them behind Chipboard Banners and doing masking. Chipboard is the best for the three-dimensional layout."


We hope you enjoyed these porjects today! Remember to head over to the PaperCrafts blog today to check out Besty Veldman's pumpkin project and leave a comment on that post for a chance to win our Summer's End collection.

Fancy This: Witch Canvas

LeahFarquharsonFramed
I always love Autumn. It's the beginning of the holiday season, and the heat of summer finally gives way to the cool, crisp breezes that shake the leaves from the trees. Even though I can't experience the season, we always love celebrating the holiday here in South Florida! Halloween has to be one of the most fun holidays to create projects for! Not to mention all of the lovely treats to make, and the costumes? I loved putting together this small canvas to decorate our home for the season!

Leahf_witch_canvas

Fancy Pants supplies:
Oct. 31: Strips Patterned Paper
Oct. 31: Printed Transparency
Oct. 31: Glitter Cuts
Oct. 31: Rub-ons
Oct. 31: Alpha Stickers
Oct. 31: Element Stickers
Oct. 31: Chipboard Elements
Oct. 31: Chipboard Banners
Oct. 31: Buttons
Oct. 31: Filter Embellishments
Beach Babe: Paper Flowers
Artist Edition: Specialty Trim, Black

Other supplies:
8x10 canvas
gesso
foam brush
liquid adhesive
inexpensive paintbrush with a black wooden handle
sewing machine, thread

To create this canvas, start by first covering your 8x10 canvas with gesso.

Leahf_fancythis1

Adhere the patterned paper to the canvas and trim, leaving enough paper around the edge to cover the sides, and fold to the back of the canvas. Apply gesso to the edges and adhere.
Leahf_fancythis2

To shape the corners, clip in with a scissors from the edge of the paper, almost to the edge of the canvas, but not quite. Fold one corner inside, and overlap the other corner outside. Secure with your favorite liquid adhesive. Allow to dry for a bit before embellishing.

Leahf_fancythis3
Leahf_fancythis4
Leahf_fancythis5
Leahf_fancythis6
Leahf_fancythis7

Trim the printed transparency to fit the bottom edge of the canvas. Adhere with liquid adhesive.
Leahf_fancythis8

Layer the chipboard hat over top of the same hat printed on the transparency. Embellish with two layered flowers glued together, and a small button added to the middle.

Leahf_fancythis9

To create the broomstick: Clip a filter embellishment halfway across and accordion fold. Dab a small amount of liquid adhesive to the metal part of the paintbrush, and wrap the filter embellishment around. Tie a bow around with black ric rac.
Leahf_fancythis10 Leahf_fancythis11
Leahf_fancythis12

Adhere broomstick to the canvas. Add the haunted sticker mounted on foam dots, and chipboard star with button in the bottom corner.
Leahf_fancythis13

Layer the glittercuts and diamond rub-on in the upper left corner and add your letters.
Leahf_fancythis14

Apply the love potion rub-on to an extra piece of smooth, white paper and cut out. Layer on top of the glittercuts.
Leahf_fancythis15

To stick the banner pieces together, cut a piece of the edge of the chipboard packaging to layer beneath the middle, layer all of the pieces together, and stitch across.
Leahf_fancythis16

Then adhere above the rub-on and adhere to canvas.
Leahf_fancythis17
Leahf_fancythis18

There are so many fun elements in this collection that it would be so easy to create a canvas of your own design as well! Enjoy creating for the holiday!

Boo! Screech! Hoooowl! What's that? It's the sounds of Halloween! Everywhere I turn lately the ghosts and witches abound. But even though I no longer have kids who are into trick or treating, the sights of the holiday have me thinking treats and treat bags. That's what Everyday Inspiration is about ... gaining inspiration from anywhere! Sometimes I'm inspired by a quote, or an ad, or architecture. Other times, I'm inspired by a mood. But as all the party supplies have hit the stores, I was thinking of all the fun I could have. So I came up with this trio of bags, based on some paper plate designs.

I loved the front and center view of this skull and cross bones decoration:

I turned that into this fun little bag:

I also fell in love with the spider and "eek" with the fun colors all around. That inspired a bag using that same phrase in a rub-on!

Halloween Treat Bag Trio_0005

I rounded the bags out with one using the iconic Halloween image of the black cat. I love the way they all look together!

I hope you've enjoyed these treat bags! They are perfect for all the goodies you plan to share with your little goblins. Happy Halloween Fancy Pants fans!

AmyPetermanFramed

Halloween Joke Book by Rachel Tucker
Rachel explains, "I was excited to be able to spotlight the Oct. 31 Design Embellishments. They are certainly one of my favorite Fancy Pants products. I made a mini/joke Halloween album for my Daughter who is 7 and very much into jokes at the moment!

Rachel Tucker - Oct31mini inside

I love how you can pick up a packet of Design Embellishments and a few of the Fancy Pants papers in the same range and know that everything is just going to work so perfectly together. I have adhered some of the Design Embellishments with foam tape to help them stand out a little."

Trish says, "The Oct. 31 Design Embellishment pack has the cutest collection of journaling spots, die-cuts and tags! They are perfect in the raw or dressed up! When I opened the package I wanted to use as many as I could! So, I cut out the ghost on the tag, edged it with some glitter and then used a grid approach to incorporate the ticket, tag line, tab and quote block. I was able to fit 8 design embellishments on this one page, making them not only cute, but a great value!"

 

Halloween
Halloween by Bénédicte Raphalen
Bénédict comments, "Even though Halloween is less popular here in France than in the US, it's still a real pleasure to discover the new collections dedicated to this theme. These kind of orange and purple colors perfectly suit this photo of my daughter next to the garden's pumpkins. They also allow to show off the design embellishments. I only superimposed them on the right hand side of the photo and I added the printed transparency that I find awesome !"

We hope you are getting lots of inspiration here on the blog. We love sharing with you, so please keep coming back. Friday, we have another Inspiration From The Everyday post you're going to love.

Fancy This: Halloween Treat Card

VickiChrismanFramed
Hello everyone! Vicki here. Today, I thought I would share with you a fun way to use your packaging from your Fancy Pants Buttons to make a Halloween card with a extra treat included. Of course since it's October, My card is a Halloween card, using the Oct. 31 line ... but you could use the same idea to create a Birthday, Christmas, Valentine, or any other themed card.
 
Vick photo 0 of project

Fancy Pants Supplies:
Oct. 31: Night patterned paper
Oct. 31: Spell patterned paper
Oct. 31t: Love Potion patterned paper
Oct. 31: Cards patterned paper
Oct. 31: Rub-ons
Oct. 31: Element stickers
Oct. 31t: trims
Oct. 31: black button
Any Fancy Pants button packaging

Other Supplies:
black ink
string
candies

I'm going to show you how to create a candy holder for your card for you card. You and can finish off and embellish your card with the Fancy Pants embellishments you choose :)
 
Here is how to get started.
 
Instructions:
 
1.  Remove the buttons and paper backing form your button packaging.
Vic photo 1
 
2. Cut a 10 x 7 inch piece from the Orange side of the "Night" paper. Score in the middle and fold to create card.
Vic photo 1
 
3. Open your card up so that you are looking at the front of your card. Decide where you would like the placement of your treat box . Measure out and mark off with a pencil and ruler, where you will cut with your exacto knife, to create the opening.  (2 7/8 inch x 2 1/2 inch) Make sure your box fits well. Make any adjustments if needed before adhering the edges of your box to the inside of your card front.
Vic photo 3
 
4. While you have your exacto knife handy, this is a good time to cut a border for the front of your card to go around your box, using the same idea of measuring and cutting as you just did to create the opening for your box in your card front.
Vic photo 4
 
5. Before adding your treats, use your exacto knife to cut a (2 1/2 inch x 1 inch) opening to the inside (top half) of the card, where the top of the treat box is. (cut the top an two sides only).
Vic photo 5
 
6. You can add a sticker tab, from your sheet of element stickers the top of it, to help hold it closed.
Vic photo 6
 
7. I added some strips of  different papers to the inside of my card to dress it up a little:) This is optional of course.
Vic photo 7
 
8.  You can cut your favorite image from the front of the "cards" paper sheet, and design the front of your card with the special person who will receive it in mind. Not only will they enjoy receiving a fun hand made card ... but all they have to do, is pop open the tab and enjoy a little treat!
Vic photo 8
 
I hope you give it a try. It's a little extra treat for the special recipient ... and I great way to use your packaging in a fun and creative way.

CKU Blog Hop

JodiSanfordFramed
Hello Fancy Pants Designs Friends! I am excited to be posting today for the CKU Blog Hop! For all of us participating, we're excited to share with you projects that we hope get you excited about CKU Reunion, whether you’ve already registered, are planning to come, or wishing you were coming. The blog hop goes from Friday, October 7th at 10:00 am MT until Saturday, October 8th at 10:00 am MT. If you get lost during the hop, come back here for the hop order (below).

Now, on to my post ... I wanted to do something quick and easy for all of us busy scrappers out there! This is a super easy way to scrapbook, store photos, and just journal away the busy days of life! This project is using our Summer's End Collection, the same collection we will be using in our Album Track at CKU.

This is the cover of my family brag book!

IMG_4344

The supplies used for my project were:
Brag Book (Fancy Pants Designs)
Summer's End Papers, Chipboard, Stickers, Glitter Cuts and Buttons (Fancy Pants Designs)
Stamp Runner/Dimensional Foam/Liquid Adhesive (Tombow)

Instructions:
1. To create this cover, trim your lined paper (Fall Frames) to 6 1/4" x 9 1/8" and adhere to your Brag Book Cover.

2. Next, from your brown paper (Abundance), trim it to 4 1/4" x 5 3/4". Don't adhere this piece just yet ... we want to embellish it first!

3. Next, from the Summer's End Sticker Sheet, use your polka dot scalloped border to line the edge of the where your lined paper meets the book binding print.

4. Now, to embellish your brown box, take the "We May Not..." quote sticker and place it near the top and center of the brown piece as seen in the photo.

IMG_4347

5. Trim the heart shape out of paper. I just 'free-handed' the heart shape here and cut it from my turquoise paper (Changing). 

6. If you want to stitch the buttons to your heart, judge where your sticker will be, then stitch the buttons on. (We will add the sticker last.)

7. From the Glitter Cuts sheet, remove the flourish Glitter Cut and place behind the heart. You may want to move it around to get the best look and then trim off the part that you don't use (I trimmed off one piece of the flourish.)

IMG_4346

8. Now we have nearly all our pieces in place. Adhere those pieces to your brown piece, but only use adhesive where it is touching the brown area ... we want to use pop dots on the pieces hanging over the edge!

9. Next, we will add dimensional foam adhesive to the back of our brown piece and glue centered (from left to right) and nearer the top of the book cover and stick down. Add a foam piece to the back, right corner of the 'my family' stamp sticker and tuck it just beneath your stitched button and on your heart, with the foam adhesive hanging over the edge to keep the dimension.

10. Next, from the Chipboard Pieces set, add the cute doily banner chipboard along the top left corner, at angle, of the brown piece. No need to add adhesive here!

11. Last, add any journaling or titles you want for your book at the bottom of the page and just like that you've got a *fancy* new Brag Book ready to be filled!



I hope you'll join me and these fabulous ladies below in celebrating CKU Reunion and I hope to see you very soon in the Fancy Pants Designs Album Track class! Oh, and here are all the details to join us beyond this fun Blog Hop!

CKU Reunion is in San Diego, CA, October 27-29 and is going to be a fun-filled weekend of creating, connecting, and inspiration. You’ll spend one day completing an album that will be ready for photos when you get home and another day creating in four, 90 minute classes including mixed media canvas art, fabric creations, jewelry, and more. Plus, there are evening crops, bonus classes, goodie bags, a commemorative tote, and so much more all for only $295! And you’ll be learning from some of the industry’s finest such as Lisa Bearnson, Teresa Collins, Stacy Julian, Michelle Hill, Megan Hoeppner, and other inspiring teachers, like me :)). You know you want to come, so register today so you’ll have plenty of time to pack your supplies for the trip. See you in San Diego!

Product Spotlight: Oct. 31 Filter Embellishments

AmyPetermanFramed

Happy Wednesday everyone! We're half-way through the week and that means another Product Spotlight. This week our Pocket Chicks, Pamela Young and Charity Hassel show you some great ways to use our Filter Embellishments from the Oct. 31 collection. These cool printed, die-cut shapes are made from a coffee filter-like paper, making them very fun to work with. Take a look...

SBC_fp-1306

 

Beautiful-FP
Beautiful by Pamela Young
Pamela explains, "I took my three large filters and folded each in half and then in half again creating a triangle shape. Then I added them around my photo so it looked like they had made a complete circle. I stitched circles on them and then trimmed down the filters with scissors so you could see the layers. It looks like I had more filters then I had. :) I then scrunched up a small filter and kind of centered it over the large embellishment and under the photo. I also folded a small filter at the top of my page, adding stitching and buttons on top. By the way, did you notice that my layout created with the awesome halloween line has nothing to do with halloween!"

Charity-haunted bats card
Haunted by Charity Hassel
Charity says, "Make adorable bats using your Oct. 31 filters. Fold your circle shaped filter in half. Fold pleats in the filter. Pinch up your filter and use glue dots to attach buttons down the center of the filter. Use scissors to cut your wings into the desired shape."

Cool ideas, huh? We hope you come back again tomorrow for more ideas. We have another Guest Designer visiting the blog, the lovely and talented, Jen Jockish!

Fancy This: Working with White Rub-ons

IrisBabaoUyFramed
Halloween pages always come alive with colors like orange, violet, teal, and hot pink. One of my favorite things to do when working on Halloween pages is to use white as my base. It takes all of the Halloween colors and makes it pop up the page because of the contrast in color.

October 31 Magic mf

Fancy Pants supplies:
Oct. 31: patterned papers
Oct. 31: Rub-ons
Oct. 31: Chipboard Banners
Oct. 31: Buttons

For this particular layout, I took out my Fancy Pants Oct. 31 rub-ons and used it to add design and color to my layout. The color rub-ons work beautifully with white. But what about the white rub-ons? It’s perfect on white too ... as a mask!!

Here is the white flourish rub-on applied on white cardstock ...

IMG_5916

Here it is again after I inked it with lilac and orange inks. 

 IMG_5919

The white rub-on acts as a mask, allowing the paper to absorb the colors of the inks while protecting the part covered with the rub-ons. Now you can see it pop up the page!
