Hello everyone, Beatriz here today sharing a project using the True Friend collection. I am Spotlighting the Library Cards. I embellished them with ribbon, lace, silk flowers and die cut leaves using some of the foil paper.
The inside of the cards were just distressed with ink on the edges and I added some tickets from the ticket roll.
I also created a box to put all the library cards inside. The box was created with corrugate paper. For the front of the box I added a brag card. These could be perfect to add on a gift and write a sentiment inside the card… also great for gift cards!
Well hello, Fancies! With Thanksgiving being tomorrow here in the US, it’s definitely the season of thanks and giving and taking pause to celebrate and be grateful for our loved ones. I know a lot of families do that thing at Thanksgiving where they go around the table and say what they are thankful for. But I thought this year I would take it a step further with the kids and have them write down things they appreciate and love about each other, and give it to each other on Thanksgiving.
So I created these little thankful pockets – filling up Fancy Pants’ kraft bags with all the fun Brag Cards found in the True Friend collection, and then writing on some of them.
I die cut the word “thankful” and a little round tag to drop in to my library card pocket. And used a lot of other die cut ephemera and tags from True Friend.
I layered a large Brag Card on to my kraft bag, and then topped it with the library card pocket and tucked in lots of fun True Friend bits.
I added dimension to the bag front using a Flair badge, and adding dimensional adhesive to my little squirrel.
And a second one for my other child.
It’s going to be so great to see them respond to their sibling telling them “you make me happy!” and sharing things that make them smile about the other person.
That’s it from me – have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends. When you gather around the dinner table this year impress your guests with a handmade centerpiece. I made a pilgrim hat using a Silhouette file and a variety of papers from Fancy Pants Designs. It was fun to make and my son is thrilled that we have this piece to show off for the holiday.
In assembling this, I have a few tips and tricks for you.
1. Use a super sticky double-sided tape to adhere the pieces. It was easier to cut little strips and apply them to each piece’s tab rather than using a liquid glue or tape runner.
2. Be patience. This project took an entire evening with cutting, adhering and decorating. You won’t want to try this Thanksgiving morning before your guests arrive.
3. Have fun with the decorations on the hat. I incorporated gold papers from Fancy Pants as well as die cuts from ephemera packs. There is no wrong way to decorate it.
4. Give the centerpiece to a guest. Maybe even place numbers under plates if you have random seating. Choose a number and that guest gets the centerpiece.
If you are celebrating this week have a wonderful holiday filled with laughter and good times!
Hello, it’s Jess here today to wrap up this week’s swap with our friends at Hazel & Ruby. Each day this week we’ve been posting a new project on the blog that will be showcasing how beautifully Fancy Pants Designs and Hazel & Ruby products work together so make sure to check them all out!
I created a totally fun tray for Santa’s cookies and milk with the Oh Deer! collection and the Hazel & Ruby Stencil-Mask: Holiday Shapes, Words, and Quotes.
I was totally blown away by the Hazel & Ruby Stencil-Masks… they were easily the best, cleanest masks I have ever used. There was zero bleeding under the letters, they peeled up like butter, and none of the stickiness was lost after using them.
I also got to experiment with the super awesome Chalk Art Tool Kit so I knew I had to paint my tray with chalkboard paint. Now my kids can leave their note to Santa right on the tray itself and we can wipe it clean for next year.
Naturally Santa needs to have fresh cookies when he arrives so I wrapped them in the Hazel & Ruby gold dot glassine paper, which is just gorgeous and so perfect for holiday projects.
I tied the cookie package up with twine, sealed it with the Be Merry ephemera, and added embellishment for extra cuteness.
I added a bow with a couple of tags to the handle of the tray (how perfect is the naughty/nice one?!) and did the reverse painting of my tray on a Fancy Pants chalk tag.
I love this tray and the Stencil-Masks are going to get a world of use from me! Thanks, Hazel & Ruby, for the seriously great products for our team this week!
