I love that each of Fancy Pants' collections (old and new) has a 12 x 12 sheet of patterned paper, printed with twelve 3 x 4 cards. They can be cut apart or used as a whole—there are lots of possibilities to what you can do with them. And the new Off To Shcool Card patterned paper is no exception. Take a look at what Allison, Suzanne and Lisa came up with when we asked them to use this paper...
Math Is No Fun by Allison Landy
Allison says, "I'm a sucker for journaling cards and tags. I buy them in every shape, size, and color. So, normally I would take the Fancy Pants Off to School Card sheet and cut it up into its respective journaling tags. But this time I actually thought it could be fun to use the entire sheet as my background paper. The individual cards were like mini canvases, but all put together on one page. I love that they are exactly 4" tall so that my photos fit across the page perfectly. To add dimension to the layout, I used some of the negative pieces of the Fancy Pants Chipboard alphas as a spray mist mask...
I also punched out shapes and used both the negative and positive images on the layout. I love how this line really lets me showcase my photos while still remaining true to the theme."
Off To School by Suzanne Sergi
Suzanne explains, "One product I love are the coordinating cards on the pattern papers. They are fabulous to stand alone, and make creating a page easy! However, they are also fantastic to be used in other ways, too. They are great for layering underneath papers, and to build cluster of embellishments upon. They are also wonderful when you trim them, and layer with another card, creating your own unique embellishments for your page. Here on my school page, I combined the card with the apples, and sunglasses with the ruler border that was part of another card. Of course, saving the portion I did not use. Perfect for the next page I create!"
Let's Play Ball by Lisa Andrews
Lisa says, "The individual cards on the Off to School Cards patterned paper make perfect photo frames for cropped photos. On this layout I cropped my photos to 2.5" X 3.5" and they fit right inside the journaling cards. I left photos out of a couple of the cards to leave room for journaling."
So, what did you think? Isn't that Cards paper great! Wanna see more creativity at work? Come back again on Friday for another Pocket Chick Pick with our Pocket Chick, Trish Harwick.
