Hey everyone! Are you enjoying this beautiful fall? Well, it's been beautiful where I live. I just love this time of year! The crisp mornings, the reappearance of sweaters, and evenings curled up in quilt with my girls and hubby. Yes, I'm always sad to see summer end, but I am thankful for the season that follows, full of cozy things to enjoy. Today, we focus again on our Summer's End collection. Our Pocket Chicks were asked to work with the Design Embellishments from this collection and we think they came up with some pretty great creations. Take a look!
Family Mini Book by Lisa Saunders
Lisa explains, "I have made a mini book that was inspired by one of the Summer's End Design Embellishments. I love the larger embellishment with the quote. I knew I wanted to use it for a larger project rather than a card or LO. So, I decided to base this whole mini book on this one design embellishment. The book started off as a kraft paper bag. I cut it in half and removed the handles. I stuck the sides down and then covered that side up with some papers from the Summer's End line. The other side was decorated for the front and back of this mini.
All the pages of the book have been cut from the matching papers and decorated with more of the design embellishments, rub-ons and buttons along with some flowers from It's the Little Things. Once the pages were finished, the book has been tied together with the handles from the paper bag.
I also used some of the matching ribbon from this line and finished off the book with one of the stickers.
I love these design embellishments. I love the texture of them and how good they look when layered up."
Live Laugh Love by Greta Hammond
Greta says, "I loved using the Design Embellishments on my layout. One of my favorite ways to sue them is to layer the different shapes like I did here...
I even used a bit of pop dots on the flowers and added some gems for dimension. The die-cut elements are great way to add some whimsical shapes to an otherwise linear layout!"
So Very Handsome by Guiseppa Gubler
Guiseppa says, "I love Fancy Pants Design Embellishments. They are a step above your average die-cut. These embellishments have a nice, soft texture to them not to mention, the designs are fabulous. I created this layout of my son using the Summer's End Design Embellishments...
I love the fact that I can cluster and layer them to create the look that I want. These embellishments work great ... even for your most handsome boys in your life."
