Hello crafty friends,
Zsoka here with you today, sharing a trio of cards I’ve created for Fancy Pants Designs.
I’ve used the wonderful The Bright Side collection on these cards. They are really simple and quick to make! I made three A2 top folding card bases from heavy weight white card stock. Then I adhered a different A2 size patterned paper to all of these.
For the first one I die cut 2 oval shapes using some Spellbinders dies. At this point I didn’t know yet what sentiment I will add, so when I opened the ephemera pack and found this oval die cut I was overjoyed! I love happy accidents like this! To add a bit of dimension, I added foam sheets between two of the oval layers. To finish it off, I glued some puffy sticker hearts and a die cut bird on the ovals. I used foam tape to attach the bird.
On the next card I cut a piece off the Natural Beauty paper, which has a beautiful flower bouquet on it. I cut it in a way that the bouquet was on the left side of my card. Then I picked out some of the die cut flowers from the ephemera pack as well as some leaves, a frame and a sentiment and played around with the arrangement. I decided to use foam adhesive on the frame and on the flowers. I glue down the leaves first, then the frame, then added in the flowers. To finish off the card I adhered my sentiment, again using foam adhesive, and attached a bow I made of the twin that comes in the tags set.
I really wanted to use these super cute cups on a card because I knew I wasn’t going to use them on a layout. It would have been a shame if they had gone to waste! There’s 3 in the ephemera pack, but once I stacked them on top of each other, they were not tall enough, so I took a 4th one from another ephemera pack. I used foam adhesive to attach these to the card front. One of the cups has The Good Stuff written on it and I thought that would be perfect for my sentiment! I added two die cut pinwheels at the top, just for fun! For finishing touches I used some puffy sticker dots and a chipboard piece.
You really don’t need a lot of supplies to create these cards! I hope I could inspire you in one way or the other!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
Hello friends! A diy inspired blog post for you today, on creating
gift boxes using pattern paper! Lately I have been loving using up
pattern paper, creating bags, envelopes, boxes, tags, banners, etc…
fun and different ways to express my creativity, and using up my
supplies! Today, I am sharing a few different sized boxes, and how I
If you do a simple search on diy gift boxes, you will find so many
different ways to create a box out of paper. The internet is amazing!
After creating the box, using pattern paper, tags, ephemera &
chipboard stickers all from The Bright Side collections, I made a tag.
Instead of attaching the tag to a tied ribbon around the box, it was
adhered to the top of the box.
The bigger box was having a hard time staying closed, so tying ribbon
around it worked like a charm. To embellish, a tag was create and
added to the ribbon.
One of my favorite things about using a collection to create anything
diy, is that it all perfectly coordinates! The cute rain boots paper,
with the cute rain boots die cut ephemera! So cute! The tag and the
die cut were adhered to the box using foam adhesive, which gives it
The next time, you need to wrap a present, consider creating your own
gift box, it really is so easy. Especially with pretty ephemera designs, online templates,
directions, punches and dies!

I have a good friend that I met through scrapbooking years ago at our local scrapbook store! Now that our kids are older, we crossed paths again when our girls ended up on the same soccer team!
So… when her oldest had TWINS I had to ask for photos to use with our new lines…what I LOVED about these pictures and The Bright Side Collection is that I could use a mix of products all from the same collection, but to suit the different colors and mood of the photos!
This first one I worked on is bright and cheery to encompass the happy feelings this new Mom is feeling!
I just LOVE this photo I LOVE the ephemera floral pieces to wrap around it to create a perfect focal point!
And, the crochet flowers we brought back for this line are…devine!! They offer a bright, happy color, but a soft, elegant touch at the same time!
Up next are two more layouts that were definitely on the softer side of this collection…same collection, same babies, completely different look and feel!
The touches of gold foiled items and the pastel pinks, blues and yellows is such a perfect touch for this photo!
And last, more pops of color with a mix of the pastels with the vibrant reds in the line! This one turned out so pretty..that photo is amazing!
So…which is your favorite? Baby layout overload and so many options that The Bright Side Collection has to offer!
Thanks for stopping by!
