NEW Fancy Pants " Mixed Media 8x8 books"

Oh man... I am SO Excited about this new little goodies that Fancy Pants is releasing this CHA.
They are "Mixed Media 8x8 books". You can check the shapes HERE on the Fancy Pants Blog. ( and lots of great samples from the DT)

Each Mixed Media set comes with 3 chipboard sheets, two felt sheets, 1 transparent sheet, 2 printed transparent sheets, and three binder rings. You can mix and match any of the sets.. which would be SO fun!
I loved stitching on the felt pieces. If your not familiar with Fancy Pants Felt.. is not that light weight flimsy stuff. This is great.. nice and firm.. so it totally holds it's shape.

Here's a photo of it straight on... so you can see how thick it is. I love this stuff.. it's a joy to stitch on.

The new paper line I'm using is "Delight". Chipboard ,felt, rubons, buttons and ribbon are also all Fancy Pants.

I just take my CatEye inks and rub them over the chipboard pieces. Between that and Glimmer Mist for Chipboard, I rarely dig out my paints anymore. This is just too quick and easy.. ( and I like the effect).

I used all my fave pictures of Griff in this book.

Here you can see one of the printed clear sheets.

I cant wait to do another one of these Mixed Media books.. I can really see now, just how endless the possibilities are. Paint, ink, stamping , stitching, you name it.. you could do it in one of these.

Like I said.. each set comes with 3 binder rings.. you punch the holes and add them were you want.

I laugh at these photos of "the many expressions of Griff" everytime I look at them. lol

Cute rubons to match this paper set also.

I have LOTS more layouts and projects to share this week.. using new Fancy Pants Products.

Cant wait to show you more. Yay.. finally. lol


Dont forget to leave a comment here if you want to be put in for the giveaway of the "Clearly Albums" book from Design Originals. Read more about it in this post.
