It's a Play Day with GlueArts & Fancy Pants!

Won't you come join in!

Today we have three new projects using Fancy Pants Beach Babe and Beach Bum collections!

Designer Andrea Budjack has made the sweetest mini book! Love how she tucked the diecuts into the pages for special spots to journal. Our GlueArts U Cut It Foam helps give added dimension to the fun fishes!!!

Designer Linda Albrecht used the Beach Babe collection with a new twist showing it's not just for beachy photos!!

2. Apply Perma Tac Adhesive to the backside of the paper strips, keeping it slightly away from the edges to allow for machine stitching.

3. Machine sew stitches as desired then use sandpaper to lightly sand on the stitches to create an old & worn effect. If you like perfection-- skip this step!;-)

4. Use acrylic paint to apply a white strip on the layout where the bottom edge of your photo will be placed.

5. Distress the edges of a 5x7" photo then adhere a piece of chipboard to the backside of the photo to reinforce it. I do this so that when it is placed in an album with all of the lumpiness of my layouts, it helps to prevent it from bending or getting wavy.
6. Apply pieces of U-Cut-It foam blanks to the backside of the matted photo to raise it off of the page and make it pop.

7. Apply Ribbon Adhesive to the backside of the trims for teh layout.

8. Apply a rub on ear the lower right corner of the photo then adhere chipboard leaf stem and a silk flower using Hot Glue.

9. Apply scalloped border sticker near the bottom of the layout. Adhere remaing trims to the bottom portion of the layout as desired. Hand sew buttons to the ends of the trims or add a staple as shown.

10. Hand embroider 'french Knots' on the layout as shown. I like to make my rows imprefect for that handmade touch.

11. Distress buttons slightly with sandpaper, if desired. Add a sentiment and the "Memories" sticker along side the lace that runs vertically along the right side of the photo.
