I started this page with one of the new Felt Letterboard embellishments  in the collection. I punched some circles of paper from the 6×6 paper pad and layered them to a simple black striped background.  I added in some pieces that I trimmed from leftover punched circles to the circles and then stitched around the edges of the circles.

I added in some diecut ephemera from the Magnolia Moments collection and then added in some diecut leaves from my digital die cutter too.

One Hour Flip Album!


Hey friends! Stephanie here to share something a bit different today!
Lately I’ve been battling a little creative block and I hate when that happens. I know we all go through it and I wanted to share some fun tips to overcome it.
I challenged my self with limited supplies, no photos, and 1 hour of just good ol’ crafty fun! I used the 12×12 journaling card paper from the Take Me Away collection, a few scraps of coordinating paper, the ephemera pack, glue, pop dots, and my sewing machine (which just happened to have yellow thread loaded).
I chose the 12×12 journaling card paper and once I cut them down I had 10 bases for a flip mini album. I went through and decorated them with the coordinating ephemera and some stitching.

I love how this project turned out and now I have a fun album ready to add photos of our next trip.
I think sometimes the idea of editing, printing, and preparing photos or figuring out where to start can deter us from getting anything done. But now you know you can just pick a handful of supplies and just start making something.
Have fun and let the creative juices start flowing again. And I guarantee that once you’ve challenged yourself and accomplished a project like this you won’t be able to stop making!

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my first project created with brand new “Magnolia moments” collection. It’s filled with lovely patterns and heart warming quotations. It also carry some really awesome and extraordinary embellishments, like letterboard embroidery hoops.
I started my project with picking the base paper. I really like this “Picture perfect” pattern with small frames. I look second, exactly the same paper and cut some of the frames once again. Using 3D foam squares, I placed them one over another creating fun texture.
This portrait of my daughter didn’t need much to shine. I picked Small “Hi” Letterboard Embellishments as a part of my title. I added rest of it using Puffy alpha stickers. I also fussy cut some of the magnolia flowers from “Magnolia moments” paper.
Those chipboard spools look like real and I love the texture they add to the page.
Adding a little bit of soft pink splatters and enamel dots was a perfect finish of the page.
I have an unboxing video if you want to see “Magnolia moments” collection in full bloom.
You can find the stores that carry Fancy Pants collection using a Store finder.
Thank you for stopping by.

Every Family Has a Story…


Morning FP friends,

What do you think of the new Magnolia Moments Collection?  Soon as I saw it, I went all nostalgic and homey with it.  I knew immediately, that I wanted to created a ‘wall’ with all the shelves and ephemera.  I used an old photo and some journaling, to get started decorating my ‘wall.’


My base is just white cardstock with the Shiplap FREE cut file from Paper Issues.  I used the white brick paper and left some of the openings open.  I layered the first shelf, just like I would on a real wall.  I used the Letter board Embellishments as wall hangings.  Then I kept going!  I used all the shelves on this layout!!  Oops!





You can see that it looks like a real wall!!  Or I think so anyway.  I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping in.

Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with another giftie duo.  I’m featuring The Bright Side Collection!

I’m smitten by the Ephemera packs!  They are so filled with goodness that it is a snap to put together a project.  I find embroidery hoops to be a fun canvas size to work with.

I added the Grateful sentiment die cut and some craft foam clouds.  I adore that floral piece teamed up with that gorgeous bird.

I decided to add a coordinating card.

To coordinate the two pieces, I added the black strip of paper from The Bright Side 6×6 paper pad.  I love all things citrus and couldn’t wait to team up those images with the stamp I had in my stash.
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hello, Friends! Maryám here with you today to share my first project with the Magnolia Moments Collection.

I was super inspired by the beautiful colors and papers from the collection that when I got it in the mail, immediately started fussy cutting one of the flowers paper.


The design was all inspired by the flowers and papers. I created a diagonal design with a photo in the center and I added some embellishments around it. On the left side, I added a paper with hexagons and one of the sticker strips.


Here are some close-ups:
