I’m so excited to bring you this week’s Featured Company which is also a returning company: Fancy Pants Designs! At CHA 2013 in Anaheim, as I was walking the aisles keeping my eyes open for great companies and products to spotlight, I was immediately drawn in by the gorgeous products in the Fancy Pants booth. Which is why I was thrilled that Jodi (one of the owners) accepted our invitation! They have been featured before and we are so pleased to have them back with us. In today’s spotlight you’ll learn more about Fancy Pants Designs, see a fantastic project by one of their designers and have the opportunity to win the Down by the Shore Collection shown below (details at the end of this post).

Special Fancy Pants Guest Designer

Today we also have a special Fancy Pants Designs Guest Designer.  Jenny Evans is part of the 2013 Fancy Pants Design Team. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library. You can leave a comment below the post telling us what you like about her project for a chance to win a the package of Fancy Pants Designs Down by the Sea Collection.

You can see Jenny’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:

SONY DSCMy name is Jenny Evans and I live in Oklahoma with my husband, Justin, and our 2 boys, Daniel(10) and Jacob(4). I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, but am now a stay-at-home mom. I have been scrapbooking and papercrafting on and off for 10 years, but only consistently for the past couple of years.
My scrapbook style is a healthy mix of trendy, contemporary, modern, and maybe a bit of whimsical thrown in. Besides scrapping my fun and fabulous family, I enjoy photography, reading and cooking. I am so excited to be a designer for Fancy Pants Designs, and to be a part of an amazing team!

Album Project

SONY DSCToday I like to share with you how to create this photo album project using the Down by the Shore collection.

1. Start by cutting your corrugated paper into 5x7inch pieces. You will need 2 red and 2 blue. Then, round the bottom two corners with a large corner punch. Print and cut your photos.
2. Cover the back/flat side of the corrugate paper with patterned paper. I have left the last one uncovered for a clean look.
3. Select your paper, embellishments and photos for each corrugated paper.
4. Design your pages, both front and back. Note that you will be punching holes in each page for the album rings, so make sure to keep all your embellishments away from that area.
5. You will need two 1inch album rings for your album. Punch 2 holes in the cover page. Take the cover and line it up on top of each of the other pages. Take a pencil and mark through the holes so you can easily punch the other pages in the same place. Add the album rings.
Here are some additional photos of the each page:
We hope you have enjoyed today’s feature. We want to extend a sincere thank you to Jenny Evans for her fabulous project and Fancy Pants Designs for sharing their company with us. Be sure to visit Fancy Pants Designs to see more of their great products.

In order to enter the give-away to win the Down by the Shore collection shown above, please leave us a comment in the comments section of this post. Winner will be announced next Wednesday on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog!

  2. I like that Jenny’s project is fun and whimsical, colorful and full of texture and EASY to do for something quick and special. The corrugated paper is my favorite thing in the whole package.
