The theme on the Pink By Design blog this week is Favorite Patterns and today's post includes projects that are anything other than a card. Fun!! If you're a follower of my blog, you probably know my favorite projects to work on are layouts!
I found these pics of my daughter, Bria, a little while ago and had to laugh. I remember the day I took these... She came out of her room wearing a LOT of random clothes and I thought it was so funny because she was so proud of herself. Little did I know, it was a little flash of the future. Now she changes her clothes up to 8 times a day - no exaggeration - and is quite the little Diva.
When I saw these 'Fancy Ladies' graphics from JW Illustrations they totally reminded me of Fancy Nancy (if you have girls in your household, I'm sure you know who I'm referring to! :)). I decided to take a Fancy Nancy-ish approach to my layout.
I used some embossed Momenta paper for my base layer.
Using my Spellbinders, I cut two different sized scalloped circles - one out of damask patterned paper and the other out of plain white paper. I then inked up an embossing folder really well and ran the white circle through my cuttlebug in the inked folder. It gave the flowers a really neat look! I then added some yellow Martha Stewart glitter to the flower centers and inked around the edge of the circle. My pretty yellow bow was done using my 3 Girl Jam bow maker and some crinkle ribbon. The journaling spot is a stamp from the Pink By Design Journaling set. My favorite part is the epoxy stickers I made myself. I recently bought some 1" clear epoxy stickers and couldn't wait to find all kinds of ways to use them. I stamped the Damask background stamp in purple and yellow, then stuck the epoxy stickers over top and cut around them.
I was going through all my PBD stamps and I knew THIS one fit this layout soooo perfectly! It's totally something fabulous that Fancy Nancy would say! :) This sentiment came from the My Favorite Kind stamp set.
I used the marvelous print and cut feature on the cameo to make my banner, using fonts I recently downloaded from dafont.com (check it out for a lot of awesome FREE fonts!).
And last, but not least, my little Fancy Nancy - or Fancy Bria as she may be more appropriately called. :) I added some bling to her to make sure she was really fancy. I also used a sakura glitter pen (Clear Sky, I think?) to color in parts of her outfit which made her SHINE.
Hope you liked my layout today and don't forget to check out the other projects up on the Pink By Design blog today!!
