Sunday Sketch 3

Sunday's here again and we've got a brand new sketch. This one is very simple and quick to do, which is great if you've got lots of photos to catch up on. I've used one 5x7 photo but it would work just as well with a standard 6x4 photo. Another photo could be used in place of the journalling block if you have extra photos. To see step by step instructions for this layout, click onto the princess kit link at the top right of the page.

Kit Inspiration

This is one great kit. The papers are all nice and glittery, and they're double sided too, giving you even more options for your layouts. The ribbon and flowers are just gorgeous and the chipboard embellishments are just too cute! The brads are glittery and go beautifully with the papers and the rubons are simply stunning. All this and some matching cardstock complete the kit and it's all perfectly girly. And it is AMAZING value. I thought I would get 2 or maybe 3 pages out of it but I ended up making 6 pages from this one kit! All I added to it was 3 extra sheets of cardstock and some lettering. That's 4 single page layouts and 1 double page. To view them just click on the link on the top right of the page. I hope this gives you some inspiration. Dont forget, we'd love to see what you come up with too so bring your completed layouts into the store to be in the running for a $20 voucher!

Sketch Sunday

It happens to everyone, from beginners to advanced scrappers. You get out your supplies and some great photos and then sit and stare at them, waiting for inspiration to strike. Sometimes the best thing to get out of a mental block is to follow a sketch. Instead of shuffling papers around for hours, you know exactly where to place them and how your photos will sit. That's why we are starting up a Sketch Sunday. Every Sunday we will put a new sketch up on the blog with a layout inspired by the sketch.

Here is this weeks sketch. As you can see I have replaced the smaller photo with journalling space and only used one title. You can also flip or reverse the sketch if this suits your photos better.

We'd love to see what everyone comes up with so when you've finished your layout, bring it into the store and we'll place it on our back wall. It will be so inspiring for others to see all the different layouts inspired by the same sketch. We'll also have some great prizes up for grabs. For every layout you bring into the store you'll get a ticket into the draw with an awesome prize pack being drawn at the end of the month. If you bring in all four layouts for the month you'll get an extra ticket into the draw. As well as winning a great prize, the winning layout will also be featured on our blog, so what are you waiting for? Get scrapping!

PLEASE NOTE: To be displayed in the shop and to be in the draw for the prize, sketches must mainly use products available from Fancy That.

Super quick mini book

Like the look of this little book? It was made in about 30 minutes using just one sheet of patterned paper and a few inexpensive embellishments. These patterned papers come in different themes such as Christmas, Family and more. It's so simple but so effective and would make a great little gift. We still have some more of these papers in the store so come and have a look and you'll be whipping some up yourself in no time!
