Fancy Pants Designs/The Cut Shoppe Team Up: Ashley Horton

Welcome to day 4 of our week of inspiration, with the Fancy Pants Design Team.  All week long, the Fancy Pants Design Team will share inspiration on their Blog using FP collections with cut files from The Cut Shoppe, and our Design Team will share here on our Blog!  We'll also be giving away some Fancy Pants products to one lucky winner at the end of the week!  And you can win a $20 Gift Certificate to The Cut Shoppe, by commenting on the Fancy Pants Blog!  So make sure you read all the way through for the giveaway information and a Coupon Code to save on Cut Files in The Cut Shop!

I created two layouts, using the Flutter and Office Suite collections from Fancy Pants, mixed with several cut files from The Cut Shoppe.

Love You Just the Way You Are:

How awesome are the colors in the Flutter collection??!!  Love them!  I decided to use the Right on Target cut file and cut it in half once I backed it with different patterned papers.  I adhered the two half circles to the top and bottom of the layout, and used the circle design to add the alphas for my title.  And I wanted to incorporate one of our new cut files for this week, so I cut the Love banner from the A Banner Day cut file set, and used it for part of my title.

A Dog's Life: 

If you haven't noticed yet, I kind of have a thing for the All Heart cut file!  :)  I think this is probably the 5th layout I've used it on so far.  I wanted to cut it from the Black & White diagonal striped patterned paper in the Fancy Pants Office Suite collection and back it with the Light Blue patterned paper.  Then I layered my photo, title and embellishments over the background.  I also used one of the cut files from thew new Wild Cards cut file set, to layer next to my photo.

We've also got three new cut file sets in The Cut Shoppe today!  These sets are perfect for coordinating with the Office Suite and Flutter collections.
In addition to all of the inspiration you'll be seeing this week, we'll also have some great giveaways and discounts!

  1. Loving all of those cut files! Adorable pages!

  2. Oh, wow, I cant' choose which one is more brilliant! Love the split targets and the FP paper placed behind gives it a real wow factor. I just adore the hearts cut in that bold paper with the pretty blue behind.

  3. These are wonderful! Love that you used two pieces of that cut file on the top layout, and I love how bold and graphic the second one is too.

  4. Terrific looking layouts!
    The cut files add so much
    to them.

  5. Ashely, these layouts are amazing!!! WOW... you inspire me a lot!

  6. These Los are great. I must admit that I, too, am in love with the all heart cut file. I have purchased it and can't wait to incorporate it into a LO. I love that you cut right on target in half. Simple but effective and something that hadn't yet dawned on me when using cut files. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Oh these are so awesome! Love that first layout and the design to it!

  8. Ashley, gorgeous pages per usual. I love the way you made the cut files totally make the papers come to life!

  9. Wow, these layouts are stunning! I love all of the embellishments, layering and texture.

  10. I love your creativity! Wonderful layouts.

  11. Love the layouts. the big circles around the main picture really make them stand out.
    thanks for sharing.

  12. Ashley, this is SUPER COOL! You are seriously one talented lady my friend.

  13. All the wonderful patterns and colors give these LOs so much energy!!!
