Here are a few that I embellished using tags from the July Bits & Pieces Kit and die cuts from the Fancy Pants Ephemera Pack in the July Main Kit. Looks like I used a few Project Life grid cards also.
By layering, stitching and stapling I able to add so many fun elements, still leaving room for photos, journaling or my week # and dates.
Now on to some 3 x 4 journaling cards. I almost couldn't stop myself but alas the family likes to be fed and wear clean clothes at times. For these inserts, I pulled various grid and pattern cards from my stash and then just started adding strips of patterned papers. The kits were full of fun Fancy Pants 12 x 12 papers. I used the backs and fronts to get lots of varied designs.
The nice thing about these cards that I add to my stash is that they can be used all in one week to create a coordinated look or they can be spread through many weeks to create a mixy matchy look. The designs and colors are clean and simple and fit into most of my color schemes.
Here I got wild and crazy and created some fun 3 x4 vellum pocket cards. Each pocket has some Fancy Pants tags tucked in, ready for use. All I have to do is add another journaling piece or photo into the pockets. I just love these.
Here I have a fun mix of tags.....the aqua tag is actually sewn in place and will be a fun landing point for an additional embellishment, maybe a flair button. The pink tag can be removed for journaling.
And here I trimmed a little banner die cut to fit onto the vellum pocket. A cute little tag is in the pocket.Since I couldn't stop myself, I finished up this fun crafty session with some final 3 x 4 cards. I loved some of the patterned papers so much that I just trimmed down some scrap pieces. I can add embellishments to them later as needed.
Whew, I hope you enjoyed the results of a very fun day in the craft room. Right now I currently am keeping this collection together in a Project Life 12 x 12 plastic pocket keeper. I plan to knock out some Life Pages with them here soon in hopes of catching up on my pages. Then when I deplete the stash enough I'll mix the cards into my existing stash. Thanks for stopping by today.
Oh, and one final note..Gossamer Blue and Fancy are sponsoring a very special contest. If you'd like to be a guest designer for both companies you might want to check out the contest details at this post.
