A couple of layouts

I have two layouts that I'd like to share today....

I picked up these gorgeous patterned papers from Fancy Pants when I was in Minneaoplis-- I just love them! I love mixing patterned papers on my cards and layouts. This week's MIM is à la Carte, and I'm entering this layout for MIM #67: Step it up: Mix-it-up Patterned Papers-- I did step 2: mixing patterned papers from the same line.

I used PTI's tag sale #5 die to create the title for my banner. The letter stickers are AC Thickers. I haven't bought thickers for a while, but these totally caught my eye at my LSS.

I selectively inked one of the stamps from PTI's We Go Together and framed it with a stamp from PTI's Fabulous Frames.

I stamped the journaling block using PTI stamps (journaling lines, label basics) and dies (angled labels). I backed an inked Pink Paislee chipboard heart with some Fancy Pants chevron patterned paper.

And here's the second layout I made, using some of the same supplies. The black letter stickers are Fancy Pants. I inked up another Pink Paislee chipboard heart (this time in red).

The journaling card I used is a Becky Higgins Project Life one (given to me by my friend, Mandy). The "everyday" along the bottom and the grey diagonal stripes were already on the journaling card. I stamped the bike and the "love this" arrow (both CTMH stamps).

Thanks for looking!
