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 here...it 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 try...it's so worth it!

You can get it in the store right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great day!
