Welcome to our Valentine's Day post!  The amazingly talented Kim Watson is featuring two gorgeous Valentine's/LOVE layouts for you today, plus another FREE download today for cut-outs on your home cutting machine!  And here you go...from Kim!

Happy ? Valentines day ? everyone!

Today is indeed the day of love! So to round off our fest of crafty loveliness and to honor those we love most in life, I have some projects to share with you using our  
Love Note collection. 


The gorgeous papers teamed up so well with some of my favorite artsy techniques, resulting in great, sophisticated page about 'grown-up' love. The fun part was creating my background page. The freedom of layering mist, paint & texture paste on to papers is so satisfying, and thought you might like a peek into how I went about it. 

Here is an overview of my creative process if you'd like to try this for yourself.
1) Using a small-dot mask, thickly apply texture paste onto a piece of Devotion Newsprint paper.
2) Mist positive & negative heart shapes on-top of the dried texture paste & allow to dry completely.
3) Over-spray the layered page wit a large dot design, using grey mist.
4) Draw chevron arrow shapes using a die cut stencil & thin marker. 
5) Splatter ink in a few colors for a little flare, making sure to allow enough time for the page whole page to air dry before completing the rest of page. 


Tip: Make the most of your stencils by tracing inside the designs using a thin marker directly onto your page.


Have you noticed that some of the patterned papers of the Love Note collection have plain backs? I love their versatility in that being slightly thinner than cardstock, they are perfect for creating die-cut titles like I did here. 

BONUS: We have a little FREEBIE download for you because we love YOU (our fans) so much, and after all it is Valentines day ? .  Please feel free to use the designs for your own personal use, with compliments from Fancy Pants Designs.

 Love You by Kim Watson


I was on a roll after my first page, so couldn't resist a second about my Hubby & I using our  Love Note collection. This time I added the punched-out word 'You' from the Artist Edition Stencils as a title. 


Don't you just love the oversized letters? perfect for an eye catching title. 


A pink misted sunburst onto white cardstock, made the perfect background for my photos.


Try cutting out and layering the hearts from a piece of Heart Throb patterned paper as a mat for your title. 

I hope you found this inspiring!? Remember to keep posting your creations using fancy Pants Designs products to our Facebook page, we'd love seeing & sharing your work with all our fans. 

From all of us here, at Fancy Pants Designs, wish you a very Happy Valentine's Day!  Have a love filled one!
