Traveler’s Notebook Spread with Magnolia Moments

09/28/18

Hello Friends! Maryám here with you today to share a Traveler’s Notebook spread I created with the beautiful Magnolia Moments Collection.

project02 copy

For today’s project, I used the #2934 Our Story paper. I cut it in two strips, one for each side of the spread, and also added a sticker from the stickers strips set.

The photo I’m using today is from my mom and my sister and is from ten years ago when she was around 4 years old. I wanted to document that moment and this collection had so many embellishments that coordinated perfectly with the photo.

Here are some close-ups:

Vacation Mini Album

09/27/18

Hello Fancy Pants fans. I have a mini album for you to share, made with awesome “On Our Way” collection. I have been playing with it this month because I have plenty of our travel photos to scrap. I am still in this colorful and joyful mood and I am not in a hurry to move to fall projects. Summer is my favorite season and I am going to stick to it as long as possible.
This time I was inspired by all the planes included into the ephemera pack. We usually travel by car so I do not airport or plane pictures, that would go well with those bits and pieces. What I do have is a bunch of photos taken in Toulouse while we visited Aeroscopia – Museum of Aviation.
1
I used a ready base – 4×4 Insta Album from Fancy Pants. It has page protectors included and basically all you have to do it to slip photos and embellish the cover.
2
I printed few 4*4 inches photos along with few collages of smaller pictures. Some of the pages are made of patterned paper. I used 6*6 paper pad to cut them out.
3
I also love to include tags and ephemera pieces between the pages of my album to add some new shapes and place for journaling. It makes album more interesting and interactive.
4
It took me less than an hour to make this mini album. I tried to keep things simple as I tend to overembellish :) It was fun to go back in time and visit Aeroscopia once again.

“On our way” collection is so fun and versatile and I really enjoyed making all my projects with it. Love the bold colors and fun patterns. If you would like to purchase it, ask in your local stores. You can also visit Make Pretty Life Shop.
Thank you for stopping by.

I have been saving this envelope for a loooong time. It is the perfect size to drop a gift card into it. It just needed a little bit of decorating!

I know a lot of people whose children go on their mission or to college, or studying abroad.  I can see myself giving my children a card like this lol. I’m coming too, my bags are packed hahaha.

My best advice is to never overthink a project, and everything looks better popped up with foam tape.
Have a great day!

New Home Gift Set

09/21/18

Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you featuring a Magnolia Moments card and gift duo.
Home Sweet Home Duo by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I had fall on my mind when I was creating this set.  Let’s chat about the card first.
Welcome by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I used the ephemera to created a welcoming front door scenery, complete with Welcome mat.  The wood veneer banner is from my stash.
Home Sweet Home by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I couldn’t wait to work with the large kraft pillow box that I found squirreled away among my crafting supplies.  I layered the two strips of paper for the belly band.  The boxwood garland was from my stash and I love how it works with all the ephemera I used as the focal point.
I’m mad for plaid, aren’t you?  I decided to just use a strip of the pattern paper so that the tag and ephemera airplane would be the star of the card.
I hope you check out the Magnolia Moments Collection, it is gorgeous elements!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Fall Weather

09/19/18

Hello, dear friends! Maryám here with you today to share a new project using Magnolia Moments Collection.

maryamp_sep18_fpd_project1-01

For today’s project I’m using a photo I took this fall while we were walking home. The idea of this layout started with the photo. I decided to recreate the way home with the help of the papers and embellishments of the collection.

At the bottom part, I added some little houses I fussy cut from one of the papers, some die-cuts, and some chipboard shapes to represent our neighborhood. Also added a door die-cut beside the photo and a cute phrase at the top.

Here are some close-ups:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

Creative Card Trio

09/11/18

Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with a fun card trio featuring the On Our Way collection.
Today by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love the Planes, Trains & Automobiles stripe panel.  I used a oval die and centered it on the panel.  I used an ephemera piece from The Bright Side Collection.  Love how you can mix and match collections.
Today close up by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love wreaths on doors.  I think it is a welcoming touch for guests.  The wreath and family ephemera do not have any adhesive on them.  The clothes pin anchors them on the card.
Flight plan duo by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
This card duo were made especially for some friends that are both pilots.  Le’ts chat about the Flight Plan one first.

I’m smitten by this color duo, aren’t you?  So unexpected but fresh and fun.  I used a star die and added another star to the tag from the Tag collection.  I added a die cut hello from my stash.
thanks by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I’m mad for plaid, aren’t you?  I decided to just use a strip of the pattern paper so that the tag and ephemera airplane would be the star of the card.
I hope you check out the On Our Way Collection, it is filled with such fun colors and designs!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
