You are so loved.




It’s my turn on the blog today!  Every once in a while I jump in on the action and collaborations with other companies!  This month we’ll be sharing the PageMaps projects we worked on early in the year!

Here is my finished layout and the sketch I followed just below it!



These sketches always give me a head start and makes my creating so much easier!  Sometimes I forget they are available at my fingertips… it makes documenting your memories so much easier when you are stuck!

Here are a few close ups…I used The Bright Side Collection for my project and went with a dark background…one, because the sketch looked that way haha and two, because it really made my photos and products POP off the page!





Happy Day and thanks for stopping by!

Love Lives Here


Hey there!

I loved the Magnolia Moments so much, I created two layouts for this months assignments.  We recently visited my grandparents.  It reminded me how people used to just pop in to each others homes.  We still drop by my grandparents home.  They are always there and always welcoming.  I snatched this photo of my boy with his great grandparents.  (BTW, they are 91 and 92 and have been married over 75 years, WHAT!!!)


Keeping all the small embellishment to the left of the layout, created a fun effect and draws your attention to the reds in the photo.  Which is the people!  The important part, right?!




Thanks for stopping by today.

Good morning friends! Nicole here to share a project with the new Magnolia Moments collection. I love the soft feel of this collection, there are so many pretty elements to play with!

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.
