Fancy Pants - About a Girl... and some Basic Grey

For the June DT at Scrap Shotz I am using the Fancy Pants About a Girl, I am really loving the new Fancy Pants lately, so easy to work with and the packs contain everything you need, stickers, letter stickers, transparent overlays, rubons...

For my first project:
The sketch this week from The Scrappiest, I know I have said this before, but I just love the sketches that Liz comes up with.


For my layout I also incorporated a couple of challenges from the Design team at the Scrap Shotz forum.  First, mine is to include 5Ss on your layout (summer, sunshine, stitching, sparkle and some stamps) and Stevie has the challenge to use stamps to create your title rather than reaching for some thickers.  I was so glad Stevie came up with that challenge it pushed me to use my favorite CTMH alphabet stamp set (Posterboard) I also used the new Over the Rainbow stamps and the August Word Puzzle.  All the papers are from the new Fancy Pants About a Girl paper pack, so fun!  Of course this fits the Pink Elephant scrapbooking challenge - summer.

For this layout I used the flocked transparency (Damask design) and placed it over one of the other pattern papers.  I also used some Unity (Ledger and Grid background) and CTMH (Star Struck) stamps.  I loved the border strip with the word Sassitude - perfect for a picture of Jaimee (who, too seems to like to take pictures of herself!).  I cut the stars with my Cricut (Plantin Schoolbook)

The sketch this week from Skipping Stones:
Some inspiration from If the Shoe Fits:


I made my card for a little girl in my class.  She is always including princesses in her writing and drawings, a real girlie girl.  I used my Once Upon a Princess Cricut cartridge to cut out the crown.
The sketch this week from CCEE:


When I saw these papers in the kit I thought of some great winter cards so here they are.  I stamped the light blue paper with the ledger stamp from Unity, the punch is from Marvy.  The stamp, ribbon and buttons are from PTI.

And finally a card using the scraps:

Last week's sketch from Creative Scrappers:

I snuck in one more layout with some new Scrap Shotz goodies that just arrived on Friday.  This time it is the new Basic Grey Basics - white - LOVE THESE papers - I got all 3 sets, can't wait to dig into all of them.  The chipboard letters and stamps are all CTMH.  The other pattern paper is Jillibean Soup (Chicken noodle and I don't know the other one).  I had fun with the title as I finally used my Tim Holtz crackle paint.  I went easy as it was the first time using it so the crackle is very fine.  I cut the tag with my Sizzix.

Woooeee - have you been busy girl or what!!!? Love the layouts and the awesome Christmas cards! I'm so green with envy - I have a stack of new stuff and can't wait to play - but life has been crazy, it's baseball/gardening season and we have a family wedding this weekend, so some of the new rubber has to wait just a little longer.....
Cheers,
Shanna
