Crafting a Banner

03/10/17

Hey friends!  Today I thought I’d share with you a new banner I made for my studio (aka craft room).  I loved the fun colorful pieces in the Jody Parade collection. So many of them just seem to perfect for an art/craft room banner.

Using the Puffy Funky Alphabet Stickers, I could easily add ” Make Stuff”, layered on a pretty tag and some ephemera pieces.

Again, using the Alphabet stickers and  a fun tag,another banner piece came together.  I had these little colored pencils that I thought would be fun to add.

There are so many great Brag cards to choose to add to your design that I had a hard time narrowing it down, but I really love this one. I added a paint brush at the bottom and some random Puffy Dots to look like paint drops.

There are so many fun elements in this collection it makes it so easy to create with.   I started with this cool tag and then added to the banner piece with the Designer Puffy Stickers, ephemera, and flair.

I’m loving the new fun colors it added to my room and loving how it looks hanging on my Hosier!

Spring Flower Cheer

02/28/17

Hello friends!  Here we are ready to jump into March!  I for one am ready for winter to be over. Winters can seem very long in NE. I’m ready to see some color!

I am ready for some color (besides grey and brown, lol).   This time of year I find ways to add some color in my house to carry me over until things start greening up and flowers start blooming.

It’s quite surprising to me how much it cheers me up, even if it’s something little, sitting on my window ledge in the kitchen. Which is exactly where I plan to set these.

Flowers
The colors and patterns from the Sweet Nothings collection are just HAPPY!   There are great Ephemera, Tags, and Puffy Stickers with this collection that you could add also if you like. I chose to keep mine sweet, simple little flowers. The green for the leaves was from the “Life is Beautiful” collection.

They are going to add a little bit of sunshine to my kitchen even on the dreariest of days. 😉

What else can you do to spread a little sunshine and cheer? Well, how about sending a “just because” card to someone to brighten their day?

Wonderful you card
With all the fun pieces in the Ephemera Pack, there’s so much to choose from for making cards.  They make creating cards fun and easy. Now… deciding who to send this too… hmmm

I love sending hand made cards and who doesn’t enjoy getting them in the mail, right?  I’m hoping it will bring a little cheer someones day!

I’m hoping you feel inspired to break out some pretty Fancy Pants papers and add a little color and cheer to your day!

Sticky Note Desk Center

02/22/17

Hello Friends! Today I am sharing a super easy way to store your favorite Fancy Pants Designs Sticky Notes and have a cute note center for a desk.

Noteboard_LatishaYoastwm

I am not one of those moms who have a command center in their home with a calendar and all of that. Brava to moms that dedicated to being super organized.  I have planners, my iPhone, and post-its with lists.

I bought this cute board for $3 in a dollar section around the holidays and I finally put it to use.  I love making lists and using sticky notes on everything so I created a fun way to store them on my desk.

I put some permanent adhesive on the back on the last sticky notes just to keep them from falling down, then placed them on the board.  I added the black + white washi tape below the notes just to balance out the board, and used a flower die cut from the ephemera kit and adhered it using foam squares. I decided to spell out the word “notes” using the black puffy alphabet stickers and added the banner from the Ephemera package. To embellish the rest of the board I added a few pennants.

This was a lot of fun to create and it’s something that anyone from all levels could re-create!

The Sweet Nothings collection is not only for the Valentine season but for any occasion! I have decided to use this fabulous collection for a home décor project.

yuki_FPD_Feb16_2
I love the brand new Felt Pennant Series! They are so cute. You can choose your favorite in a variety of types. I also used the DIY Clipboard for my project.

The Sticky Note Set, Washi tapes, and Color Coated Clips are useful as stationery, but I wanted to use them for room décor this time.

I hope you enjoyed the project.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day!

02/14/17

Hi everyone, happy heart day! I hope all of you get to spend some time with your loved ones!

Today I have a home decor project to share with you.

I used the wonderful Sweet Nothings collection for this one, of course! I realized I haven’t used the Fancy Pants clipboards yet, so I thought this would be the perfect occassion for it.

I decided to just cover it all with patterned paper instead of clipping things to it. I used my ATG to do this so actually it’s all easily removable should I want to create a different design in the future.

With this new clipboard it’s really easy to cover everything because you can remove the clip! You only need a screwdriver. That’s pretty clever isn’t it?

I wanted to use a lot of different patterned papers because, well, I love patterned papers! I also love rolled flowers, so that’s what I did: used many different papers for my rolled flowers! I made sure I had every color from the collection, yellow, pink, grey, black and white. I used my Cameo to cut these (the cut files I bought at the Silhouette Design Store, just search for 3d or rolled flowers), but you could cut some by hand too if you don’t have a die cutting machine. It will just take time.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day I arranged the flowers in a heart shape and with my hot glue gun I adhered them to the background. I glued this cute post stamp from the ephemera pack on top of the flowers.

I used the puffy alpha stickers from the collection to create the sentiment, which is Happy Heart Day. I only needed to add Happy and Day since my flower heart served as part of the sentiment.

Because I just love tags, I tucked one under the striped paper at the right bottom and added my letters on top of this. To finish it off I created three heart clusters using the super cute puffy heart stickers.

It’s a simple project and it’s also fairly quick. Only the flowers take a bit of time. They are worth every minute though! They always turn out gorgeous!

I hope you can use this idea for a project! Thanks for stopping by today!
