Hey Everyone! Vicki here today, sharing a bit of spooky fun. I was so excited to see this super cute Halloween collection from Fancy Pants called Spellbound
I was seriously checking the mail daily, waiting for this collection to come! I had a project in mind before it even arrived.
I wanted to create a pair of these witches shoes with it. It’s fun to plan out what papers will be used for each different piece. I really like using the 12×12 sheets for large pieces and the smaller prints from the 6×6 pad for the little accent pieces. I pretty excited about the fun striped pattern. Perfect for the witches socks, don’t you think?
There are so much fun things in the Ephemera pack that I could have used on the shoes, but I decided on the word “Halloween” , the spider web and the bats.
I wanted my shoes to be free standing so I attached them with a strip of cardstock at the back of the heal. I had adhered the paper to the chipboard with adhesive sheets before die cutting it. I used my die design from AccuCut but ( if you don’t have this die, or a die cutting machine, you could find a pattern online and cut it could by hand). It would also make a darling album of course.
With all the fun papers and ephemera in this collection, where are tons of different ways you could create a pair of these shoes.
You could also make the legs longer and stick them upside down in a big bowl of candy. Wouldn’t that be fun?
Any way you do it, I know you will feel inspired when you get your hands on this collection!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello everyone. Christin here today to share with you a fall wreath made with the lovely new collection Spellbound.
I started by cutting out leaves that were slightly different in shape and size. I wanted the wreath to be kind of discreet so I mostly used the papers with lighter colors for this wreath.
Since I didn’t work with so many papers i found a different way to set the papers a little apart. I cut out some leaves in vellum and glued the layers together, that way the leaf looked lighter.
To set the different leaves apart more I stitched the stem and veins with different colors.
Since the embroidery hoop is pretty thin I used a fast drying glue to glue all the pieces to the embroidery hoop.
I wanted a few colors to pop so I added one paper layer of orange. I cut out six identical leaves in 3 different sizes and glued them on top of each other to add some extra dimension.
To add some dimension to the leaves I bend all the leaves in the middle so they wouldn’t lay completely flat.
I hope I have inspired you to make something pretty to hang on your wall.
Hello Everyone! Vicki here today to share a fun project I just finished up. I am loving the new “Dream big” Collection from Fancy Pants and I couldn’t wait to create something for our house with it.
I don’t know about you, but I love altering and repurposing things. Actually I have a big plastic bin in my craft room closet, just for different things I pick up as I see them. I may not always know just what I’m going to do with them when I bring them home, but I know they have potencial, and that is something I find so inspiring.
I created this from a decorative switch place I ran across.
I’ve had this switch plate in my “too alter someday” bin for quite a while now, but this beautiful collection was just the inspiration I needed. This collection has so many fun bits of ephemera that is was hard to pick which ones to use.
At first I had planed to paint the switch plate before starting, but them I really loved the way the papers and ephemera stood out from the metal.
Sticker letters from the Fancy Pant sticker sheets worked perfectly inside the spaces to spell “HOME”.
Attaching a wide ribbon to the back, extended from both the top corners, makes a great hanger. In the top photo I just have it laid over the knob on a glass Cloche on my sofa table.
I love this collection. It’s got great paper designs and so many fun ephemera pieces. I hope this inspires you to break out your papers and give some thought to what you can alter, to make a fun new piece of decor for your home. As I was writing this I started thinking it really might be fun to add some journaling pages in the back that they could document the dates of each project and update.

Hello Everyone! Vicki here to day to share a canvas project I just finished using the Family & Co Collection. This collection has so many fun elements that are perfect for “family” theme projects, or layouts. Also cute ephemera pieces that could easily work for card making. The canvas I choose to make with these sweet photos of my great nieces family was 8×11 size.
This great title piece from the Ephemera Pack was my inspiration.
This set has adorable ephemera pieces! I was laying them all out on my desk, checking out the entire pack when I found this little round frame, I knew it was the perfect way to help me incorporate another smaller photo . I used another larger round frame and a round tag to set up a background for it. I placed some foam tape behind the piece with the photo to make it stand off the canvas.
There is also an amazing sheet of Puffy Heart stickers for this collection. I used one of the arrows, and the pennant tabs, as well as some of the dots as accents on my project.
I used only a blank canvas for the project to get started. After I finished adding all my papers, elements and photos, I finished off the edges of the canvas with some Fancy Pants Designs Washi Tape. I absolutely love how it works around the edge of canvases!
I think a canvas like this would be a great gift for a family. That’s what I plan to do with mine.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have been inspired to want to create!Read More
