Good morning! I am back on the blog to share some super quick cards using some fun items from the Hello Sunshine collection.

I pulled out my  6×6 paper pad, some diecuts, paint and a little washi tape and got to work.  My first card started off pretty simple, just a few swipes of paint and some hand cut letters complete the front of the card super easily.

I added in a few stamped stars from the Merry & Bright collection for a little contrast to the front, and added a little piece of glitter washi tape from Millie & June to dot the i!

Next, I created this simple layered card with the help of my punches and a little more of that glitter washi tape from Millie & June.

It is so easy to add a few strips of bright paper and layer some diecuts onto a few simple punched circles and create a super easy card.

I kept this last card even more simple with some diecuts from the Hello Sunshine collection and some simple strips of washi tape.

Thank you card

I ripped the washi tape in half down the middle, and then adhered the straight edges beside each other to make a fun torn border on the card front. Next, it was time to pop a few floral die cuts to the front, add a few enamel dots from my stash and voila!

Thank you card cl1

Hello Sunshine Cards


Hello Everyone! Have you all been doing your best to stay cool?  Time to brew up a tall glass of ice tea for me. We sat out on the deck for a bit today before it got too hot. It’s defiantly Summer!

I’m loving the plates, napkins and straws that are in the gorgeous patterns and colors of the “Hello Sunshine” Collection. So fun and bright!

Earlier in the week I had created some cards with this fun collection. There are so many fun elements that work great for layouts, cards, home decor projects ect.

I’m so drawn to the contrasting colors in this collection. A gorgeous mix of dark and light with the bold pops of color just makes me happy!

There are so many fun pieces of ephemera in the ephemera pack for this collection. A little bit of almost everything at reminds you of Summer. I was instantly drawn to the Flamingos, but  I was giddy when I saw these cute sunglasses. I love adding them to my projects with some foam squares to lift them off the paper and really show them off.

And who wouldn’t find these little cactus irresistible?  Especially mixed up with some stripes and polka dots!

This collection is just so  FUN!

If it’s too hot to see outside with an iced tea, you could always have your iced tea in your craft room while your creating right?   Sounds like a plan!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hey everyone! Nicole here again on the blog with a project using the new and fabulous Hello Sunshine collection!

This collection is so fun, I had a hard time reigning myself in on what I wanted to do on my project today.

Summer treat

I used mainly the 6×6 paper pad and some diecuts for this project. I really love all the fun and summery patterns and used several to handcut my title. I will admit, I am doing that a lot lately, and I just can’t get enough. A larger, fun title makes me use minimal amounts of paper, without that look!

I added some tags along the bottom of my title and did a little stamping for my journaling. I love the fun little watermelon like tag here! How fun are these rubber charm paper clips. They are awesome for planners, and perfect for the corner of a photo too!

That’s it for me today! I hope you are inspired to crack into the Hello Sunshine collection on your own!

Hello Summer Gift Idea | Kim Watson

Hello Summer Gift Idea | Kim Watson


With summer being in full swing and warm vibes filling the air, I thought I’d show you a cool summer gift wrap idea you are going to want to try yourself.
The gorgeous tropical collection from Fancy Pants Designs Hello Sunshine, was the perfect way to make a special friend feel completely spoilt on her birthday. The fresh patterns & funky ephemera took her gift from ordinary, to AMAZING!!

The beauty of this box, is that it was made using a single piece of patterned paper & a scoreboard. Don’t the pink stripes look fabulous?!! The ombre pink colors color scheme really offsets the graphic black & white leaf design.
Tell me if you agree..that a gift doesn’t look finished unless it is topped with a lovely big flower? So I hand made one. A big, bold & beautiful flower cut from layers of the Hello Sunshine 6×6 paper pad. Attached with a paper ‘ribbon’ which also holds the box closed…it adds gorgeous flashes of color & makes a bold & dimensional statement.
And last but certainly not least, I added a decorative tag. The Hello Sunshine tag pack comes with a selection of cute tag designs, I selected the ‘You were born to stand out’ tag complete with quirky flamingo (my fave at the moment), added a few flower & leaf ephemera clustered together & then raised with foam adhesive for height.
The result is totally…’WOW’ and I have to say, it was a complete showstopper at the party! The birthday girl’s reaction was totally worth the effort.
Thanks for stopping by. Have yourself a super crafty day further!

Hey everyone, Amy here to share a new layout with you using the new Hello Sunshine line, which is amazing! I had a photo of my daughter and her best friends on a flamingo float, and I couldn’t wait to use this cute, cute line to create a page. Here’s my layout.

I had to add some gold, so I grabbed one of my favorite patterned papers from Millie and June and die cut my title. The rest fell into place easily.  I also added flair from the Millie and June line. Here are some closeups.

I had to add at least one of the flamingos to the layout and the clip was the perfect touch.

Cards | Latisha Yoast

Cards | Latisha Yoast


Hello Friends.  Today, I am sharing a few cards, that are very easy to reproduce.  You can either package them up and give as a gift, or keep them for yourself, for when you need them.  These cards take only a few basic supplies, card stock, Hello Sunshine pattern paper and ephemera, ink and adhesive.
Here are all 3 cards together, they each have their own sentiment and look, but still coordinate.
Each card is 3.5 inches wide by 4.5 inches tall.  I used different pattern paper for each card base, but to saye on cutting into 3 different 12×12 sheets of paper, you could use just one sheet.  The pattern paper is the Cabana sheet from the Hello Sunshine collection. I inked the white card stock with green ink, stamped the sentiment, and then added the pineapple die cut from the Hello Sunshine Ephemera set using foam squares.  When making a fairly simple card, popping an element up with foam adhesive will give great depth to your project. To balance the card out, I added a few enamel dots.
The pattern paper that is the base of this card is the Paradise Found pattern paper from the Hello Sunshine collection.  I sponged teal ink onto the white card stock, stamped the sentiment and then added the flower ephemera pieces using foam adhesive.  The white card stock panel was also adhered using foam squares.
We all need an abundance of “happy birthday” cards to have on hand.  The cute little palm leaf and martini glass were the perfect elements for this card. The background was created by sponging pink ink onto the white card stock. The pattern paper used as the base of this card is the  Feeling Good sheet from Hello Sunshine.
Supplies Used
white card stock
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam squares
black, pink, teal & green ink
