I wanted to share a couple of pages I created with two new collections from Fancy Pants. The first page is created with Oct. 31. I really love this Halloween line, and love all beautful old graphics on the papers.
The following page is of my three little spooks on Halloween of 2009. I think this was the last year Gabi wanted to dress up in a costume. Right now, I cannot remember if she humored me last year, or not. Oh my, I must grab a diet coke to wake up! I am not use to the 6am wake up call with school back in session.
Spooky Potions Poisons
Journaling for me is always decided upon last. This is probably not very smart, because after all, journaling should be one of the most important things. However, thanks to these cute journaling spots by Fancy Pants, it makes it easy to print my computer journaling.
Simple banner layering on top of the page. Originally, I wanted a huge spider, or bat. However, I could not find my punches, so decided to use this bat punch to add some detail to these strips.
This page is from two years ago. It is one out of four, that I have of Roman at my brother-n-law's wedding. (computer crashed at this time)
So I was happy to find it, and thought it paired beautifully with
Summer's End. Even though this collection has a very soft pallette, I think it is also perfect for boy pages, too! So happy to finally scrap a page of my son. It seems like it has been awhile.
Live, Laugh, Love
a few details:
I kept my title simple by using a premade one from the embellishment pack. Layered it on top of a banner. I could not resist tucking in that cute chipboard bird onto the page. Roman truly loves seeing his pages,but always raises an eyebrow if he sees a cute bird. (he has also vetoed flowers on his pages, too.) lol
Here the larger bracket frame is part of the paper. I simply added the smaller chipboard frame to sit inside. Of course, I did add texture by using an embossing folder. However, please do not try this at home. lol I really had to use some power to get it to go through the machine! It worked fine, but I do not want you to break your machine. If it can be embossed, you better believe I am going to try it!
More simple embossing for the finishing detail to this paper heart.
Thank you for reading today, and I hope that you have been able to pick up these collections for yourself! Love this time of year!
