Get to Know our Design Team members - part 9

These are our two last Designers to be introduced to our team! Please welcome Kim and Glenda!

KimWatson_DT_Signature

Hello! My name's Kim Watson - I live on a mountainside with my sweet little family, in a beautiful seaside suburb just outside Cape Town. I started scrapping 'professionally' about 5 years ago, which means I get to work from home, which is a dream come true for me....no more rat race! I have been fortunate to design for a variety of manufacturers and magazines with this year being my 4th year designing & writing for Creating Keepsakes magazine as a Dream Team member. I am so looking forward to my third year with Fancy Pants & am really LOVING the new collections and how they are inspiring me to create.

GlendaViljoen_DT_Signature

Hi! My name is Glenda Viljoen and I live in Johannesburg, South Africa with my husband Gary and two sons, Byron and Kyle. I have been passionately scrapbooking since 2004 with work published in various local magazines and publications. In 2010, I attended Ranger University in New Jersey, USA and am a certified Ranger Instructor. My primary goal is to take scrapbooking on a never ending journey beyond mundane, repetitious themes and content to an ever upward attainment of new layouts and ideas. I don’t ever want to lose sight of the purpose of scrapbooking, which is my gift to family and friends to enable me to leave a legacy of memories. I’m looking forward to sharing this creative opportunity as a member of the Fancy Pants Designs Design Team with you.

Cardmaking with Diana

DianaBrodeur_DT_Signature

Hello everyone! Diana here with a few quick and easy cards that you can create in no time.

If you are pressed for time or just don't know what to say on your card, grab your handy dandy Brag Pads.

Scattered throughout the Brag Pads are cute little sayings that would be perfect for a card. What I love about these sayings is that it you don't have to stamp or carefully place letter stickers on your card.

After choosing a saying, all you need to do is add a few pieces of patterned paper and embellishments to complete your little masterpieces! Here are a few cards I created with sayings from three of the Brag Pads.

Cards_all
The first card was created using the Etcetera Brag Pad. The font on this saying is just to die for!

Hello_card

Swagger Paper Top Hat / Swagger Paper Debonair / Swagger Banner Die Cuts / Swagger Ephemera Pack / Etcetera Brag Pad / Etcetera Decorative Tags

Next up is a saying from the Down by the Shore Brag Pad. There are several really cool sayings for summer cards!

Go_card
Down by the Shore Paper Saltwater / Down by the Shore Label Stickers / Down by the Shore Brag Pad/ Down by the Shore Decorative Bags / Down by the Shore Decorative Tags / Down by the Shore Button Set

For this last one, I used a saying from the Swagger Brag Book. These are perfect for manly cards.

Mustache_card

Swagger Paper Clever / Swagger Ephemera Pack / Swagger Brag Pad

That's all I have for you today. I hope these cards got you in a creative mood!

FOCUS ON : Fancy Pants Designs Patterned Envelopes with Julie

Juli Bonner_DT_Signature

I don't know about you, but WE are ready for some warm weather over in our neck of the woods!!!  Being that is was a long winter of mostly dreary, cold days, I was instantly drawn to the fun, bright color palette of the Down By The Shore Collection.  I pulled out a photo of my son & nephew enjoying some rays at the beach, and paired it with tons of goodies from this awesome warm weather collection.

Onewayticket500

I decided to use three of the patterned envelopes as photo mats of sorts.  I glued all three down, overlapping them a bit, and tucked my photo right underneath the flaps.  An easy way to "ground" your photo onto the page!!

  Onewayticketcu4

Those little pennant flags were too cute not to use, so I staggered three of them in the top corner of my layout.  The patterned envelopes provided a great way to house them, as I simply tucked them underneath the flap.

  Onewayticketcu2

Since my background was white, I added lots of fun colored mist splatters to accent the colors from the Down By The Shore Collection.  If you look close, I added some of the little fish rub-ons in the collection here and there - my version of beach confetti!!!

  Onewayticketcu1

I LOVE title work, and had tons of fun mixing bits and pieces from the collection.  The title is housed on a sheet from the Brag Pad.  To that I added some fun alpha stickers & the word "happy" from the Adventure Set Quote Stencils.  To make the letters "pop" a bit more, I backed any empty spaces with patterned paper.  In addition I added in the chipboard anchor on one side and then hand-cut some of those gorgeous flowers from the Cruise patterned paper for the other side.  

I also created a fun everyday card with the Down By The Shore collection.  Once again, I used a patterned envelope and tucked a patterned photo frame containing the sentiment and some accent embellishments right into it.

Here you can see the fun sun I made using one of the stickers in the collection, and a number of the toothpicks included with the pennants.  They were easy to snip in half and tuck in behind the sticker.

Wish2cu

If you are still experiencing winter-like weather in YOUR neck of the woods, enjoying diving into some of your own Down By The Shore collection.  It's sure to brighten up your day and get you thinking warm weather thoughts!!

Easy & colorful layout in 30 minutes!

CelineNavarro_DT_Signature
Hello Fancy Pants Designs lovers! How are you ? I hope you're doing wonderful and looking forward to Spring as much I am! 

Today I would like to show you an easy, fast (30mns) and colorful layout! 

FPD

Here's what you'll need to create this layout...

Trendsetter Style Sheet paper / Down by the Shore Wave Rider paper / Swagger Humourous paper /  Etcetera Brag Pad / Artisan Edition Stencil 3x8 Pattern set / Down by the Shore Patterned Envelopes / Down by the Shore Rubons / Down by the Shore Tags / Park Bench Button Set / Park Bench Stickers Fundamentals / Etcetera Label Stickers / Tags / Mists / Washi Tape

First of all, layer two Brag Pad papers and an Artist Edition Stencil beneath your picture and glue everything on your background.

Mist some tags.

Glue the Envelope and add the tag behind it.

IMG_4561

Layer the misted tags and adhere them on the right side of your photo.

Add some stickers here and there.

Embellish your layout with buttons, tape stickers and add some mist drops here and there (by opening the bottle and maing drops with the tip).

IMG_4558

Your title is made using different Word stickers and alpha stickers.

Add your journaling, some sewing all around the edges of the layou and inside your background.

And voilà! :)

If this layout inspires you, I would love to see what you come up with! Post the link to your layout here in the comments, I'll come and say hi! :)

Take care!

Trends with Tessa - CHEVRONS

TessaBuys_DT_Signature

The Fancy Pants Designs Trend Setter collection couldn't live up to its name without trendy chevrons! There are so many great chevron prints to choose from when designing your pages. I chose to make the large chevron print on the Posh paper the star of my layout.

Layout

Trend Setter Posh Paper / Trend Setter Price Tag Paper / Trend Setter Style Sheet Paper / Trend Setter Strips Paper / Trend Setter Felt Flowers / Trend Setter Flair / Trend Setter Decorative Tags /Trend Setter Button Set / Trend Setter Tape Stickers

I cut trimmed out a portion of the pattern to create a chevron arrow. I dressed up the chevrons by lining a few of them with tape stickers.

Close-up 1

I couldn't resist the chevron patterned flair, so I made it the highlight of my title in place of an "o".

Close-up 2

If you're looking for the perfect chevrons, look no further than the Trend Setter collection!

Thanks!

Sketch Monday with Vicki

VickiChrisman_DT_Signature

Here we are working our way to the end of March already. I don't know about you, but I'm really anticipating the arrival of warmer weather.  It's been a long cold winter here in Nebraska.  Time to pull out the Summer photos!  I decided to bring a little Summer fun to my work desk with this fun line.   I love these  happy colors and the Sun and Water theme of the "Down by the Sea Shore" Collection. 

Vicki layout for sketch March 24th 

Down by the Shore paper Anchors Away /Down by the Shore paper Sunshine/ Down by the Shore  Label Sticker/ Down by the Shore Navy Corrugate paper/ Down by the Shore Patterned Envelopes/ Down by the Shore Clips/ Down by the Shore Decorative Tags/ Down by the Shore Title Pieces/ Down by the Shore Button Set/ Down by the Shore Rub-Ons

Using these large Title Pieces makes a great starting place for any layout.  I love them!

On this layout, I used drops of clear dimensional glaze on my title piece to give the look of water splashing from the sprinkler.

The Decorative Tags and Patterned Envelopes make such fun additions.

Vicki layout close 1 for sketch March 24th

Whether you choose to use this line or one of the other gorgeous lines from Fancy Pants Designs, I'm hoping that the my sketch inspires you!

Meet our new Designers today!

LauraCraigie_DT_Signature

My name is Laura Craigie, but you can call also me Lulu if you like, I'll answer to both!  I live on a beautiful island in B.C. Canada with my husband of 9yrs and our three little boys who keep me on my toes.  I'm a stay at home mom by day and a paper crafter by night.  I have been scrapbooking for a little over 8 years and have been very blessed and amazed by this industry.  I love creating colourful projects with mostly clean lines, and I can't consider anything done till it's been run through my sewing machine.  When I'm not scrapbooking you can find me building Lego, chasing boys, searching for Geocaches, and dreaming of owning a dog one day.

Welcome to Vicki, Izzy and Amy!

VickiChrisman_DT_Signature

My name is Vicki Chrisman.  I live in Nebraska with my husband Dan and our two terribly spoiled dogs.  We have two grown sons and are excited to  be adding a daughter in law in just a couple of months.  I have been a paper crafter for years, and love it even more now than when I first started.

IzzyAnderson_DT_Signature

Hi everyone!  I’m Izzy and I am a Southerner from North Carolina. I grew up in a creative family who made things with their hands.  My Dad was a handyman and could fix anything. My Mom was a homemaker in that old-fashioned sense that you rarely see anymore.  At my Dad’s knee, I learned how things work. At my Mom’s elbow, I learned to cook and sew.  I’ve had various crafty hobbies along the way but didn’t start scrapbooking until my son was born in 2009.  I’ve been hooked on paper crafting ever since! 

My style is generally clean and layered, fun and cheerful.  I love to mix patterns and colors, adding a little of this, here and there.  I have a weakness for stickers and stitching and you'll usually find both on my projects.

I’ve been fortunate to have my work published in national magazines, including Paper Crafts, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc, Scrapbook Trends, CARDS, CREATE and Simply Handmade.  I am also a contributor to PaperHaus magazine and have projects in each issue. 

I am honored and thrilled to be part of this fabulous team!

AmyCoose_DT_Signature

My name is Amy Coose and I'm a transplanted Texan living in Northern Virginia.  I am thrilled, really THRILLED, to be on the Fancy Pants Designs Design Team.  I adore their products, and really appreciate Jodi giving me the opportunity to work along side such talented people.

I've been married to my hubby for 17 years and we have three fabulous kiddos, Austin who's 13, Georgia who's 11, and Davis who's 1 1/2.  I was a teacher before I had my kids, but now I am a full-time stay at home mom. If I'm not scrapping, I'm probably at the hockey rink.  My oldest plays travel hockey, so we spend all year on the ice.   

I've been scrapping since Austin was a baby, so that's over 13 years, and I love it just as much today as I did back then.  It has become a big part of my life, and I love looking back on all the memories I've preserved. My work has been published in several idea books, Scrapbook Trends, and Scrapbooking and Cards Today.

I am looking forward to a wonderful year filled with gorgeous Fancy Pants Designs products!

TessaBuys_DT_Signature

I am a happy mother to three energetic boys and wife to a fantastic, supportive husband. We live in Northern California, where I work as a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer. When not in the studio, I am in my craft room designing with everything from paper to fabric. Besides creating for my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper, I enjoy working for scrapbook companies, clubs and shops. You can find my work in Scrapbook Trends, Create Idea Books, Creating Keepsakes, and more. I love blue, but have a serious crush on yellow. I secretly enjoy being the only girl in my household and love all things floral and vintage. I feel incredibly blessed to design for Fancy Pants Designs and am grateful for the opportunity.

JenniferLarson_DT_Signature.png

My name is Jennifer Larson. I grew up in Maine and have lived in Minnesota since I attended college at St. Olaf, met my husband at the Mall of America, and settled down to teach English to high school students. I am the blessed, tired mother of two boys, a loveable shepherd mix, and a slightly neurotic but affectionate cat. Aside from being a full-time wife and mother, I also teacher high school students English.  

I started making cards in 1999, but I became enamored with scrapbooking when I was pregnant with my firstborn in 2002 and attended a basic scrapbooking class at my local scrapbook store. Since then I've been published in Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Trends, and Creating Keepsakes, and I am on the design team for Write Click Scrapbook. You can follow me at Twitter or Pinterest at Buffyfanlarson.

VictoriaFreze_DT_Signature

My name is Victoria Freze, I live in Odessa, Ukraine. My love for photography and paper craft developed into new passion a couple of years ago. Now I can't live a day without creating my projects or thinking over the new ones while I'm out of the craft room. Scrapbooking helps me to get to know my genuine wishes, to set concrete goals and to achieve them. When I create cards, I just relax and enjoy the process. Besides paper craft I love to travel, to meet new friends, to read and to develop myself. I'm happy to be a part of this fabulous team, to design projects and share my ideas with all of you!

Hello, my name is Julie & I live on the East Coast with my wonderful husband and two adorable sons.  I began scrapbooking just before my first son was born and feel blessed to have discovered such a rewarding creative outlet.  I LOVE the process of scrapbooking - editing photos, choosing just the right supplies, and creating a balanced design.  In addition to scrapbooking, I enjoy spending my time cooking, learning everything I possibly can about Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, and playing with my Canon Rebel.  I am both thrilled and honored to be part of the Fancy Pants 2013 team!!

DianaBrodeur_DT_Signature

Hi! My name is Diana Brodeur. I live in Oklahoma with my two daughters. I work as an Information Security Officer at a local bank but my true passion is creating things whether it’s in the form of paper or food. I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2004 by one of my coworkers. I was instantly hooked and have been scrapping ever since! I usually scrap in the evenings when my girls are in bed or on the weekends. Now that my girls are older, they also love to scrap alongside me and even have a little stash of their own.

I have been blessed to be published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends, Making Memories, Creative Memories, and Scrapstreet.com Magazine.

When I am not scrapbooking or working, you can find me spending quality time with my two girls, getting lost in a good book or baking my little heart out.

StacyCohen_DT_Signature

I live in Los Angeles, California with my loving husband, our two wonderful little daughters, and two sweet kitties.  My girls are the inspiration for all my creative projects . . . I call them my little ‘muses’.  I started scrapbooking in September of 2004 and I have been hooked ever since.  Scrapbooking is my hobby, passion and creative outlet.  I always say, “It’s cheaper than therapy!”  

I’m a very slow scrapper, often spending several nights on one layout.  I love to fuss over all the little details and get everything just right.  I would define my scrapping style as romantic with a touch of shabby chic, though I love to change it up from time to time and play around with different scrapping styles.  I’ve been a Creating Keepsakes Magazine Dream Team member for the years 2011, 2012 and now 2013.  I’m thrilled to be designing for Fancy Pants!!

PamelaYoung_DT_Signature

Hi everyone!  I am so thrilled to continue on with Fancy Pants Designs for another year, hope you're not sick of me yet.  ;)  My main passion is scrapbooking, although my art journal and mixed media projects come in a close second. I also enjoy making cards and other home decor projects.  I have been scrapbooking for at least 12 years, although I was recently going through some boxes from my childhood and realized that I pretty much scrapbooked back then too. I was also lucky enough to inherit my grandmother's old scrapbooks recently, so I guess it runs in the family.  My style can only be called the "Pamela style"...not really defined by any other so called style. My style typically includes lots of layers and I love including techniques on my pages. I have been published in several different magazines, including Cards, Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbooks and Cards Today, Scrapbooks Etc, Scrapbook Trends.

 I currently live in beautiful Colorado, and I am a stay-at-home mom to two wild boys, ages 10 (well...almost 10) and 8, and a 4 year old girl. They grow up so fast. I am enjoying life right now, even though it can get a bit chaotic.

AngieGutshall_DT_Signature

Hi My name is Angie Gutshall and I'm a stay at home mom for 4 children Faith 7, Ty 6, Noah 3, Hannah 2.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Brian.  We live in the country in the central part of Pennsylvania. Scrapbooking for me is capturing our everyday moments on paper so my kiddos will have something to treasure when they get older. I started scrapbooking when my oldest was born, 7 years ago—I took one look at her adorable face and knew I was in trouble!  Photography is a passion of mine: In my family it's become a joke that if I don't have my camera something is wrong! 

I would say my style is clean & simple but with a shabby chic look too. I love color and love seeing it mixed together.  You’ll always see me handwriting most of my journaling so that it is more personable for my kids. I don’t just stop at scrapbooking and photography, either. Once I stumbled into mixed media, I found a new playground to play on.

I love to inspire people with my work and enjoy teaching others about the amazing art of scrapbooking. Let’s face it : you can’t beat scrapbooking for preserving memories. 

I'm very excited to be part of the Fancy Pants Designs Team!

Get to Know our Design Team members - part 3

Today, get to to know Alexes Brown and Jess Mutty

AlexesBrown_DT_Signature

Hi there! My name is Alexes Brown and I love paper. No seriously, I really love paper. I love it so much that I even love the smell of new paper… yeah I know, obsessed. I’ve been playing with paper since middle school and since then it’s become my greatest passion. I absolutely LOVE creating and I feel so fulfilled whenever I complete a project, or when I see the look on someones face when they receive a handmade gift from me. I mostly scrapbook in the traditional 12×12 format but lately I’ve been branching out to other formats such as Project Life, too!  Oh and I’m also a sucker for minibooks, there’s just something about them that I absolutely love. I’m a mommy to two busy little kiddos and my husband of 5 years loves to help me keep our little monsters from creating too much havoc.

JessMutty_DT_Signature

I'm Jess and I am a stay at home mom to my toddler extraordinaire, Owen, and my beautiful baby girl, Lily, who was born in July 2012. We live just West of Boston with three crazy orange cats and a lot of dust bunnies! Before staying at home I worked as a theatrical costume designer. I love to cook, bake (especially cupcakes), travel, sew, entertain, and read young adult fiction. Scrapping saves my sanity and I love nothing more than just sitting down to play with colors and texture. You can see my work in Scrapstreet Magazine, Scrapbook News and Review, Scrapbook Trends, Simply Handmade, CARDS, several Create books, PaperHaus, and Creating Keepsakes. I am thrilled to be designing for Fancy Pants!

YukiShimada_DT_Signature

My name is Yuki Shimada live in Japan with my husband and two teenage daughters. I am so so happy to be joining the Fancy Pants Designs team for another year! I started to scrap more seriously about 5 years ago. Since then, I am lucky to have been on several Design Teams and to have been published in a couple of scrapbooking magazines. My two daughters are my favorite persons to scrap about. We often travel around the world and I love to document our memories of the trips in my layouts.

MindyBaxter_DT_Signature

Now let me introduce your to another talented lady : Mindy Baxter !

My name is Mindy Baxter and I’m a stay at home wife and mother. I live in Southern California where I was born and raised. I’ve been with my hubby for 16 years. We have 3 beautiful and amazing children, which are the main focus of my scrapbooking. I love to cook and I’m a bit of a neat freak. I love taking my family to Disneyland. Crafting is a big part of my life. I’ve been in the paper crafting industry for over 6 years now. I started off with stamping and over the last 6 months have really gotten into scrapbooking. I’m so hooked! I love to sit and create, like many of you it’s my time to escape and relax.  I’m the type of crafter that’s always adding more and always reaching for that extra embellishment. I love pink! I love pretty, girly things. I enjoy blogging about my projects and being motivated by other crafters. I’m looking forward to sharing my creativity with you all and I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing company and team.

NicoleStark_DT_Signature

Please say a warm welcome to Nicole Stark!

I’m Nicole Stark.  I live in Utah with my three boys:  Brandon my sweet husband and our sons, Wesley (10), and Thomas (19 months).  Yes, that’s right my boys are nine years apart in age.  Their age differences at times can be challenging, but it’s so nice to be a family of four.   I work part time during the day as a cake decorator and the rest of the day I do the usual SAHM things.

Scrapbooking started soon after my first son was born in 2002 and I’ve been snapping photos and playing with paper every since.  What started out as a way to document my new little guy soon turned into my creative outlet.  I’m not happy if I’m not creating and it’s cheaper than therapy.

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity of working with several manufacturers over the years and having my work seen in numerous publications and idea books.  I even got the honor of being one of the 2007 Memory Maker Masters.    

When I’m not scrapbooking I can be found playing wife/mom and soaking in every single moment with my boys – with the camera in tow.

Discover Céline's world with this colorful layout : 

"I'm so excited to be part of the Fancy Pants Design Team! To introduce myself, I wanted to make a layout about one of my passions : travelling. When I opened my Fancy Pants Designs products box and came accross this amazing 'Seize the Day' Stencil Quote, I knew that I would use it quite fast as this is exactly the way I see life!"

Céline simply misted the Stencil Quote and used her sewing machine to outline the die-cut. It was then mounted with 3D foam. She then added a thin layer of gesso on her background paper to make her center piece pop out from it.

She used some trendy colors on this layout : yellow/navy blue/aqua with a tiny bit of coral red.
