Tantrum / Fancy Pants True Friend

Happy Friday, friends!  Missy here with you again.  All week long, the Design Team has been sharing 12x12 layouts using 6x6 paper pads.  I used the Fancy Pants True Friend Paper Pad for my layout.

I used the papers in a few different ways:

1.  Layers behind my photo.
2.  Paper Piecing to back the circle die cut.
3.  Cutting a large title using multiple papers.
4.  Stamping and fussy cutting.

I added some texture paste and gelatos to my background to get the layout going.  I used products in the colors of the collection.  I had this circle die cut in my stash and I decided to back some of the circles using various patterns.  I added in lots of different stickers, Thickers, flair buttons, puffy stickers and my journaling.

I used some Evalicious stickers and a flair button on my page as well as some Simple Stories stickers.  I really love the color combination in this collection.  Luckily I have some teal thread in my stash, so I was able to match up my machine stitching just perfectly.

I really love how my big title turned out.  I used the Yellow Butterflies font to create "tantrum" really big in my Silhouette software.  I cut several papers and stuck them right beside each other on my cutting mat.  Easy peasy!  Then I just pieced it back together and adhered it down.

This cute flair button is from Evalicious, and I added some tangled thread under it for another pop of teal.  I added pop dots under the photo for more dimension.

Here's another look at the title area and the mixed media work.  I love how the background design is visible through the big circle die cut.

 I have been hoarding these gorgeous Thickers for a while now.  I think they look fabulous with this collection :)  Here you can also see the arrow stamps that I fussy cut.  That's one more thing you can do with your little scraps left over from a 6x6 paper pad.

 Here's my process video for this can see how it all came together if you'd like!  Hope you enjoy!

Be sure to check out the store for all the available 6x6 Paper Pads!  There are so many things you can do with them!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

{heart} YOU with Chickaniddy

Hi there, Lisa S here today to share a layout I created using the Chickaniddy 365 6 x 6 paper pad.  I used one sheet of 12 x 12 for my background, but the rest of the papers are from the pad.  I used one cut nearly in half for the triangle at the top left.  I used the papers to back the frames, for the die cut leaves, feather and title and punched butterflies.  I also fussy cut some little roses for a little more dimension.

Heart You

Here's a close up of one of the frames.  I also used the really cute 365 Enamel Words for this little cluster.

FullSizeRender (4)-003

So many easy ways to use these great 6 x 6 pads..and you get so much bang for your buck since you get all the papers in the line for under $6. :)

Dream, Explore, Discover

Hey there!
Lisa here today to share a post with you.
This week the My Scraps & More Design Team are sharing 12x12 layouts we created using 6x6 paper pads. I had the pleasure of working with Fancy Pants Makin' Waves paper pad. Fancy Pants is my favorite company to create with and this line is awesome! I have been loving using the 6x6 paper pads to create layouts and now have several in my stash.
I actually created 2 pages with the Fancy Pants Makin' Waves 6x6 paper pad. The first one I kept fairly simple and used a grid for my base:

I wanted to create movement across the top of my page with an arrow, but the 6x6 papers were not long enough, so I decided to do a broken arrow using a few strips of the red anchor paper. I think it added more movement than a solid arrow would have. I love the look!

I used wallet sized photos and cut the papers to match that size to create my grid:

Then I just added a few of the Project Life cards (my title "Dream, Explore, Discover" was a card I cut in thirds) , some stitching and a few other simple embellies and my layout was complete:

My second layout is not as simple, but still shows some easy ways to use the 6x6 papers.
The first thing I did was cut the clouds and waves using my Cameo. Then I backed them with some 6x6 papers and trimmed. I added a few more of the papers  as layers behind my photo and stitched. I cut the sun with my Cameo also and then used a scalloped circle punch and punched the orange 6x6 paper. I cut the scalloped part of the circle off and used that in 2 pieces- the bigger piece to the right top of my photos and the smaller piece on the lower left hand side of my page. The circle that was left, I added to the inside of my sun.:

I added some stitching to hold my waves in place. The anchor button is from the Fancy Pants Makin' Waves button pack:

Here is a closer look at the clouds and scalloped circle:

and a close up of the sun:
 I hope with this post, you learned a few new ways to use the 6x6 paper pads and will use them more often to create 12x12 layouts! They really are fun to use because they have smaller patterns and aren't quite as busy as the 12x12 papers we use all the time.

Silly Swimmers.

Hello and good morning..

Happy Tuesday!!!

Today I am sharing a layout with you created with a 6x6 pad of paper, no 12x12 papers were used on the layout at all. I've done it before several times, esp when I love a line and only have a 6x6 pad... they aren't just for card making. I used a Basic Grey Adrift 6x6 pad for this page. 
I scrapped my kids from the previous summer being silly while they were swimming at their grandparents pool.

I added some half circle accents at the top with some bold black stitching:

I also pulled out some wood pieces to add to the layout:

I then used two different blue mists for splats to give a "water" feel to the page, and punched out some circles to add also:

So pull out a 6x6 pad and challenge yourself to use it on a layout.. It's pretty fun.

Thanks sooo much for stopping by and have a great day!!!!

On an Adventure (Simple Stories So Rad)

Hello, TinaGale here! Today I have a layout using the  Simple Stories So Rad collection and then lots of things from my stash.
Using 6x6 pads is a great way to get a sampling of all the paper in a collection as well as I love the smaller prints so you can really use a lot of different patterns on a page. Be sure to come back each day this week for more inspiration from the Design Team using 6x6 paper pads!

Here's a look at the process

I love layering up all kinds of embellishments and mixing collections. I mixed the cork word from the Journey collection and alphas from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes collection.

Tucking in labels and circles are a great way to build up a cluster. Adding enamel dots is the perfect finishing touch. I loved this quote in the Cocoa Vanilla Made of Awesome sticker sheet.

Tags are another great way to start out a cluster embellishment. The twine adds some great texture and dimension to your layout.

Supplies Used

AC Dear Lizzy Spring
MME The Sweetest Thing Tangerine
Jillibean Soup Red Raspberry label stickers
Heidi Swapp Puffy chat bubbles

You are my fav with Crate Paper

Good morning friends!! Yesterday was World Card Making Day for the scrapbook community!! Cards filled social media and our team took part in creating some fun inspiration to share. So many of you played along. It was so awesome to see all the amazing and creative cards ya'll made!! I chose to create a Halloween themed card, perfect for the month of October.
I used up the new Crate Paper Halloween line; After Dark .  I started my base of the card with the fun polka dot ,witching hour specialty paper. It was the perfect contrast for my lighter paper strips on top of it!
I created a fun shaker box to fill with the confetti that goes with this line. The confetti is a mix of bats, stars and orange sequins, just perfect to sprinkle around your page or card!
I added a fun cluster to the bottom of my shaker card with a wooden star from a coordinating embellishment and a spider sticker from the fun sticker sheet. You can find a similar sticker sheet in the shop. This is one of my favorite Halloween lines released this season. With so many fun parts to it you cant go wrong with your festive projects!!!

Hello! Happy Saturday! It's also World Card Making Day so don't forget to check out the design team's challenges on the forum as well as on our Facebook page!  

Today I'm sharing a layout I created with Pink Paislee's new Memorandum collection!  I am just loving the fun prints and colors of this line!  They are so fun to create with and it goes with practically any theme!

I added a light layer of modeling paste over the top and bottom of my page as well as added in paint splatters.  To accent, I used epoxy shapes from Evalicious.

I cut a small 3x4 piece of the Memo print to place behind my wood veneer frame. I love the multi-colored triangles of this paper!  I also fussy cut a few of the labels from the aptly named Labels print to jot down some info about my photo!  

A close up of the modeling paste and epoxy shapes!  

I used a cute flair badge from the Evalicious Photo Shoot line to accent some pennants I added in the upper right hand corner of my page.  

Showing another label as well as epoxy shapes to accent!  You can also see the many layers of different prints from the Memorandum collection!  

Thank you for stopping by! Check out the MSAM shop to see this collection plus much more! Have a great day!
