Pocket Chick Pick: Cathy Harper


Welcome to our very first Pocket Chick Pick!

This project in the Fancy Pants Facebook Fan gallery by Cathy Harper caught my attention straight away. It has many of the “elements” that I would tend to use on my own pages. The paper lace doily, the distressed paper strips, the brads, transparency and rub-ons.

I loved the overall look of Cathy’s layout and wanted my project to have the same layout. So, I turned Cathy’s layout into a sketch and then “built” my layout from it.

Fancy Pants Supplies:
Love Birds: Sweetheart paper
Love Birds: Sending My Love paper
Hot Chocolate: Dark Chocolate paper
Hot Chocolate: Glistening Snow paper
Hot Chocolate: Alpha Stickers
Tradition: Buttons

Other Supplies:
felt, string, ink

I incorporated into my layout many of the elements that Cathy has used on hers. For example: hearts.  Cathy used a heart shaped paper, I cut my hearts from the Love Birds: Sweetheart paper. The paper strips were distressed in Cathy’s layout, so too are mine. Cathy’s layout has brads, I instead incorporated buttons from the Tradition range. To finish I took the quote from her page {create happiness everyday in everyway} and then used the word “happiness” for my title.

I am in love with the Fancy Pants Tradition buttons, with three sizes and five different colors in the one packet they suit just about any project perfectly.

I also love the Hot Chocolate alphas. Don’t you just adore the swirl on the capital letters?  I have “distressed” my title by rubbing them with a fine sandpaper.
