Enjoy the Moment for Fancy Pants Week! May 26, 2016 07:00 1 Comment

 

Hey everyone, 

What a fun week so far, right? I absolutely love the Attwell collection we received from Fancy Pants for our team up. I thought the colors would work really with a kraft cardstock base and I also decided to use some relatively new cut files, that are in the shop.

Here is the page I created:

I absolutely love any cut file I can use as a background and incorporate lots of different colors and patterns. The radiate file was so fun to use! I chose to cut it with kraft and layer on top of kraft. It creates a really neat dimensional look. To add the pattern papers, I just held the negative of the cut file and cut around it. Super easy and it fits perfectly behind the cut file. 

The fun was figuring out how I wanted to spread out the patterns and give some good balance. 

How fun are those tags? By layering them under the photo, it helped to create my visual triangle with the color scheme. I'm all about visual triangles. Perhaps a bit obsessed. 

Here are a couple more close ups...

I love how most of the pattern papers have a solid color on the other side. One of them worked perfect to create my title as the color went with the design.

I added some faux stitching around the cut file to help ground the overall design. 

Thanks for swinging by today! I hope you are enjoying the focus and fun on the blog, this week, as we party with Fancy Pants Designs!
