Banners continue to be all the rage in the scrapbooking world. Fancy Pants Designs answers this market demand with their Chipboard Banners! In one package, we get several different shapes of small banners that match the paper collection perfectly. The most obvious way of using these chipboard banners are indeed to use them as banner pieces. However, there are other ways to put this versatile product to use.
In this first layout, I created a scalloped border at the bottom of the page with the semi-circle banner pieces in the Summer Soul: Chipboard Banners.
I also added medium sized Fancy Pants Designs buttons to enhance dimension with another layer. Additional chipboard circles also accent the title of the layout. This will serve as a cover page of a vacation album. Oh it's exciting to have gotten started with scrapping our Mexico trip already. I usually wait months if not years waiting for goodness knows what and why!
In the second layout for the same Mexico album, I used the pendant chipboard pieces and used them as puzzle pieces. I cut one light blue piece into halves with exacto knife and altogether the six pieces create an interesting visual rectangle. Again, I accent the chipboard pieces with Fancy Pants Designs buttons. Me thinketh the buttons and chipboard pieces should live happily ever after! :)
Here you can see a close-up of the puzzle pieces using the chipboard banners. I must say that how perfect the Summer Soul collection is for a tropical vacation album, especially for a mother with two girls! I hope you have found a couple of new ways to use the chipboard banner pieces, they are super fun and uber versatile!
