Family Time


I was so excited to create a layout using the new On Our Way line, the colors are awesome! I picked neutral colored photos so they would pop of all the bright colors.

Fancy Pants Designs Collections Used: On Our Way
The family time tag in the tags bag was the first thing I knew I wanted to use on my layout, and I actually built it around the tag.

I added a few pieces of ephemera at the bottom next to the journaling to finish it up.

Isn’t it a fabulous new line? I can not get enough of these bright colors. Thanks for visiting the Fancy Pants Designs blog.

Mini Album “Lemonade Stand”


Hello friends. Steph here again! Back with another super cute mini album. I know. I know… I’m addicted and I can’t help it. I just love them so much!
For this album, I used a mixture of both Bright Side and Pool Side from Fancy Pants. I also used a few papers from some of their previous collections. Mixing collections and designs suites my style of eccentric and eclectic.
I’ve had these photos for about five years now and I’m so happy they worked great in a little mini album! As for the base of this project, I used a 4×4 chipboard album. I covered the front and back with patterned papers and Mod Podge. I also added the mini layouts on top of the page protectors so that my embellishments wouldn’t be mashed.

The Cutest Little Tag Album


Hey ya’ll. Stephanie here.

Today I’m sharing another small scrap project. Another fun summer mini-album using the Pool Side collection. I’ve never tried a ring flip book so I thought I would try it this time. And I have to say I love it! And with some fun fringe it’s even better!

I wanted to remind you guys that when I work in a project like this I usually create all the pages at the same time. Like one bigger project and then layer them for an album effect. Projects like these are my favorite because I can literally do them in one sitting. And I like the feeling of accomplishing a project instead of feeling like I can never complete larger albums. Hey they are laid out before I put them together in the album style!

Minimalist Style…The Good Stuff!


The Good Stuff. I want to document and remember all The Good Stuff from my girls’ childhood. SO many awesome (and not so awesome – but usually laughable) moments. This is one of the awesome moments. Going to visit Roxy and Sally. Probably thee most favourite animals in my Milly’s childhood thus far.

I used scatterings of elements from both The Bright Side collection and the Poolside collection.

I wanted to keep the layout bright and fun. I love the photos I took of this particular day at my Uncles visiting their horses and didn’t want to take away from the gorgeous photos. I tend to be a minimalist but pushed myself to be less of a minimalist on this layout. I found that keeping the colour palette simple helped a huge amount. Yellow, white and black were the main colors for this page.

I love the birds in the ephemera pack in The Bright Side collection.

I also snuck in a few of the chipboard sticker elements. The sunshine paper is from the Poolside collection.

The layout design is based roughly on another layout I made last year. When I’m stumped I go through old layouts and look at them as if they are a sketch. Sometimes that’s all I need to get going and pump out a few layouts in a short amount of time.

I hope you found something new in my project!  I’m always trying to keep it simple, but fresh and on-trend, too!

Happy Scrapping!

Oh so happy!


Hi there,

Zsoka back with you today sharing my newest layout I’ve created for Fancy Pants Designs!

I remembered using a specific cut file about 2 or so years ago but for the life of me I could not find it, I have no idea whose design it was. So I just went ahead and made my own in the Silhouette Studio program – it’s basically just triangle shapes arranged in a circle.


I cut this from one of the patterned papers, then backed the rays with different patterned papers from The Bright Side collection. I also added some machine stitching in the middle of the rays.


I created one cluster in the middle of the page, so it is a very simple design. I felt like otherwise the page would have been too busy. I layered tissue paper, tags, die cuts behind my photo and glued these down. I then added different embellies around and on top of my photo: labels, chipboard stickers, die cuts. For some interest I added a die cut photo frame too and my title also comes from the die cut ephemera pack.



To finish off my page I glued down some colourful puffy sticker dots!


I hope you like this simple idea!

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish you a great day!

See you soon!

It’s a Beautiful Day!


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!
