Fancy Pants Guest Designer!

Jen Chesnick- Heck Yes- Fancy Pants
Woot! Fancy Pants as been a favorite of mine for a long time.  When I was asked to Guest Design for September I was more than thrilled.  I've created several projects and answered some fun Q&A's for y'all.  Stop by their blog HERE for all kinds of inspiration.
- What is your favorite kind of project to create?  This is a tough one! Mini Albums really are a staple for me and I love creating them.  I know for most people they take a long time, but typically I can put one together faster than a layout! Hard to believe, but if you have great products and inspiring photos I think its easy.
- What is you current favorite FPD product?  Die-cuts, hands down!  Although the Burlap Bows are to-die-for.  Each collection has such great die-cuts.  They add so much depth to a page and the designs are always so cute.
- How has your work grown throughout the years?  Gosh! Again another hard question.  My style has certainly evolved over the past 7ish years.  I also think my photography skills have gotten better as well.  So the photos of my projects are better.  I look back at older layouts and think gosh that would look much better if the photo was better.  I’ve found my style and what I like to work with and I’ve stuck to it.  I don’t hoard supplies like I used to.  I buy what I know I will use and love.
Heck Yes: This layout is my favorite of the bunch.  The large title in black (I rarely use black!) just stands out and screams at ya.  I love that.  I used 3D foam squares to pop the title up even further.

Vacation Happy:  For this layout my starting point was actually the titles cut file.  Fancy Pants has files available in the Silhouette store and I snagged them all up.  Again I used black so it would stand out around all the pretty colors of Me-ology.

You & Her: This was the last layout I made in my tear through all the fun bits of Me-ology.  I really couldn’t help myself.  I used a glitter marker to change the color of the ampersand to fit my scheme better.  I also wanted to be sure to sneak that big camera into a layout somewhere.  The corrugated paper makes a nice backdrop for pattern papers and adds some heft to your projects.

You are my Greatest Adventure:  This mini album took me no time at all.  I truly LOVE how it came together.  I used a wood album I picked up my local craft store.  I sprayed the wood gold and layered up every flower I could cut out from Burlap & Bouquets.  The burlap bows are by far my favorite thing EVER.  I printed my photos out at roughly 4×6 and made them the star on each page.
