Fancy Pants "True Friend" & Kaisercraft "Hello Today" - by Linda Eggleton

Hello everyone and welcome to the blog today.
I have another layout created with Fancy Pants - True Friend to share....this is such a gorgeous, pretty collection...with a bit of cute thrown in too.  I have loved creating with it this month :)
My layout is based on the 15th October Stuck sketch
I've used the pretty Forever Friends paper for the background, and have left it as is, to show off the pretty flowers & gorgeous colours...and I've also used some small strips of the black corrugated cardstock in under the teal Little Things paper....ooops about the piece at the bottom right that has moved without me noticing before I photographed the page!

There's 3 different Green Tara flowers in my cluster - Azalea, Gardenia & Cherry blossom...and the teal coloured one is from Petaloo.  There's also some of the stickers in and around the cluster ...from both the Label Sticker pack & the Fundamentals sticker sheet.

The title is one of the super cool 2Crafty Line Words...Happiness.
I've coated it in gesso & then painted it with some watered down Oriental Poppy glimmermist.  To get a little bit of texture on the chipboard, I've dabbed the gesso on, rather than paint it on.
The little Geotags are also 2Crafty, and I've layered a smaller one on top of a bigger one - The pack comes with 15 or so different sized tags....love them!  I've coloured the grey one with a very worn out prima ink pad (black) and the black one with a black gelato....and I've grouped these to form a little cluster with some more flowers.

I have used the cardboard backing sheet from the True Friend Flair Embellishments in under the photo - with the yellow'ish triangles....it looked really cool & I wanted to use it!
There's more stickers here & one of the Flair Embellishments - these are a bit bigger than normal sized flairs, but I am loving the size!  I've also used another 2Crafty piece - Sharon's Butterflies.

The page has quite a lot of white space on it for me....it was really hard to just leave the teal paper like this with all the spare space up the top left, but I stayed strong & kept it as is without adding more to it!!! LOL.  The pic is of my DD and one of her best friends at her Hens weekend earlier in the year.
Next I have some of my Kaisercraft DT work to share using the fabulous Hello Today collection.
"Silo Magic"
Love hexagons? They come ready printed on the "Everyday" paper, and all you need to do is cut them out - and they are all sorts of colours & patterns too. Or if you like the paper as is, even easier. Hexagons are such a cool trend in the scraping world atm, so these are just perfect. I've cut them out & distressed & inked the edges slightly, then arranged them
in a flowing motion across & down the page.

Paper Blooms, stickers & Collectables pieces....they are my go-to's for creating my clusters :)

I've used one of the 3x4 "Right Now" Captured Moments cards for my journaling...and also layered in under the photo as well. I find these little gems make layering & arranging things on the page so easy & simple! No need to measure, cut etc....it's all done for you. It's just a matter of shuffling them around until you're happy with the arrangement....so just one other use for these cards besides PL style scrapping!

I've also used a few other new release products from Kaisercraft....Corrugated Cardboard & Cork sheets!!! Oh how I LOVE these :)))) They give such a great rustic feel & add such awesome texture!

I've used some of the cool stamps from the Hello Today clear stamp set randomly on the background, as well as the Tiny Dots stamp

I soooo love the golden browns in this collection...they are so me :)
And another great thing about the colours in this collection, is that they are neutral, which makes them so adaptable to adding pops other colours to the palette....such as the blue in my photo & the few little embellishments I've added, plus there's a slight hint of blue in the background work. But any other colour would go well with this palette as well.

Next is a little desk calendar I've created for 2015

I started it all from scratch, by first cutting out some chipboard pieces 6"x6" and then had a heap of fun covering & embellishing them for each month.
It is a flip type calendar, and each month backs against the previous month,
so I only needed 6 pieces of chipboard.

Each month I've tried to vary the design, papers & embellishments used, but each month I've basically used pieces from the paper pad, sticker sheets - including the clear acetate stickers of each month, Collectables pack, some "Right Now" Captured Moments cards, the clear stamp set & some paper blooms....as well as a minimal amount of embellies from my stash, plus a few different diecut pieces.

Some 2Crafty chevron bits - love my 2Crafty chipboard!
And the 3 little circles down the side are stamped impages using the Hello Today clear stamp set.

The little calendar pieces are from the "Mod" paper, and are so perfect for a calendar or even pocket type calendar. I simply cut them all out, taking off the top part with the name of the month and then rounded the corners with a corner punch. And underneath that, a few of the Captured Moments cards layered on top of each other....which makes things so much quicker, as I mentioned earlier.

Papers from the paper pad are perfect for this type of thing as it saves cutting up
full sized 12x12 papers!
I've only shared a few of the calendar months here, but if you'd like to see all 12, you can see them over on my blog HERE
