It's Blog Hop Day!!!

 

It's finally here, Blog Hop day!!!  I've been looking forward to this for a month or so now.  I'm loving all the new products in the Fall/Winter catalog, which you can see here.

First, THANK YOU for patiently hopping along.  You've made to to the end! 

Today, I'm featuring products from Fancy Pants Capturing Moments.  I love the colors and images in this theme set.  I started with a basic two-page layout.  I don't worry much about scrapping chronologically and pull out pix that look good with the colors in them.

 As you can see, this is all about dying Easter Eggs.  I loved the colors of the papers with the colors of my granddaughters eggs. 

I used the 6x6" paper pad to for the die cut flowers and scalloped oval.  Otherwise, I let the paper speak to me.

I made good use of the ephemera pack, tags and ticket roll as well.  

When I got together with my crop circle, my friend Kim brought along some vintage Halloween images and ideas for the Halloween Crafternoon for which she was preparing.  I borrowed some of the images and supplies she brought, paired them with my Capturing Moments scraps and came up with this fun rosette.
I made the rosette with 2-2 1/2x12 inch paper strips that I edge-punched, and my Martha Stewart Score Board.  I fussy cut the pumpkin image and pulled out some of the pieces in the ephemera pack and layered them up.  Inked the edges too.  Isn't he cute?
This Boo tag started with a tag made from the 6x6" paper pad and layered with another piece from that pad.  I used a Studio Calico stencil and black soot distress ink for the next layer.  Another fussy cut vintage image and collar from a cupcake liner provided by Kim and ephemera and ticket from the collection.  

Looking over these three projects I realized I could have used holiday themed papers to create them, but rather than limit my creativity to papers only used for specific holidays I can use any papers I fall in love with and use them for any memory--holiday or otherwise.  

Again, thanks for hopping along.  I know you've seen some amazing projects from the TeamWorks girls.  Each is so talented and has a unique style.  I am honored to be a part of the team.

I have always loved Fancy Pants....All of your layouts are super cute and I love the fact that you let the photo determine the color. I do the same thing and wondered if I was the only one!! Glad to know I am not alone!!! Thank you for sharing today...You are awesome. I am a fairly new consultant and was hoping to get some great ideas, and I DID!!!

I adore your 2 page layout with Capturing Memories. I have started to be crazy about Fancy Pants again with their recent releases- especially this one! I ordered a bunch of it! I am going to borrow your rosette idea- I love ephemera- Would be a beautiful Christmas ornament too! Thanks for the inspiration in such a variety of projects!
