Fabulous with So Fancy
Hi there Simple Stories fans! Suzanna here today to share with you a pocket page spread created using the So Fancy collection! Recently my daughter celebrated her First Communion and I really wanted something feminine yet girly to record these special memories for her. So Fancy was just the thing I was looking for!
I had so many pictures that really, pocket pages are the way to go and include them all. I chose the highlights for the front pages with plenty of "supporting evidence", AKA embellishements. Later, I can go back and size and print some of the other pictures for the backsides. I love that by using two different pocket pages, I am able to have both vertical and horizontal pictures. Really, with pocket scrapping, there is always some combination that will accommodate what you HAVE rather than needing to cut and trim and work existing photos and supplies.
I like to have at the very least one, more often than not two, confetti pockets. I broke out my Fuse for the first time and sealed in some of the die cuts and various other "bits". LOVE the way it turned out! I can't wait to play with it some more. The left hand page, with the banners in the confetti pocket, has variegated thread in the pocket as well - another fun addition to the sequins and die cuts you can add.
The bulk of my pockets are filled with SN@P cards but I did use some of the cards from the 12x12 sheets as well. For the title, I had to use my watercolor pencils, without water, to color over the "Y" to create a fourth complimentary shade. I believe the way that the fussy cut letters were cut, and still saving plenty of extra paper unscathed for future use, the "L" and "Y" were the same color. This type A, highlighted, bolded and underlined personality could have none of that! Quick and easy fix, thanks to color pencils. Just stay in the lines!
The gold bits and pieces scattered through out the die cuts, chipboard and SN@P cards in this collection are just the right amount of pizzazz and bling. Being such a special occasion, I couldn't omit that golden touch! To add a personal touch to the cards, I stitched on them, both hand and machine stitching.
With all of the goodies one can mix and match in this collection, the sky is the limit with what you can! This and any of the Simple Stories collections in fact!
Thanks for stopping in today!
