Missy's Reveal - September Projects

Happy Sunday, everyone!  

Today begins a week-long reveal of the design team's monthly projects.  This month, we are featuring the Country Boutique line from Fancy Pants.  When I first saw the papers, I was nervous about creating with them because they aren't my usual choice in colors.  There are a lot of whites, browns, blacks, greys & light blues...and I really love bright colors.  But then I had a vision of scrapping a black and white photo...and once I started, these papers quickly became very fun to work with.  I made four pages out of this one collection, and I still have more left over.  I looked at these as a challenge, and the more I created with these papers, the more I loved them!

Here is what I created...

To me, these papers have very elegant designs.  The color scheme inspired me to scrap one of my wedding photos.  I absolutely love the black and white photo goes so nicely with the papers.  I added some light blue paint and some modeling paste.  Those hearts were fussy cut from one of the patterned papers...they were just begging to be cut out :)

Another white and black photo featured here...I love this chevron paper!  The only things I added here are the buttons, twine & doilies.  Again, these papers have such elegant colors and designs, and the doilies seemed like a perfect match.

Another awesome thing about this line is the sheet of banner pieces!  There are all shapes & sizes to punch out.  I scrapped a sepia toned photo here, and it goes very well with the brown/wood background paper.  I added modeling paste to this one, too, and also another doily.  Don't you just love my daughter's cute little toe?  :)

I used a color photo for this page.  It's a shot of me and my husband on our honeymoon in Lake Tahoe.  The colors just jumped out at me, and I knew these papers were the perfect ones for it.  I fussy cut more of the hearts and added a heart-shaped doily.

I think it's safe to say that this collection quickly became one of my favorites!  I love it when you don't think something is your style, and then you make it work and create something you love more than ever.  You should definitely give this line a's so worth it!

You can get it in the store right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great day!
