Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!

Let’s start with the Family Wreath.

I love wreaths on doors.  I think it is a welcoming touch for guests.  The wreath and family ephemera do not have any adhesive on them.  The clothes pin anchors them on the card.

My next card is one that will go postal to one of my friends.

I’m gathering with friends for a brunch this month.  Summers are tough to coordinate schedules so I always cherish our time together
My final card is my favorite:

The Letterboard Embellishments are truly amazing.  I really wanted it to shine so I just backed it with a panel from the Magnolia Moments collection.  That sweet bird is from the coordinating ephemera pack.

Pretty Cards…Pretty Moments…



Welcome everyone. It’s Anna here with another Fancy Pants project. This time I have three cards for you, all made with “Magnolia moments” collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I love using vivid colors on my projects so i usually purchase colorful collections. Romantic is not my go to style but this collection is so pretty, inspiring and so easy to use. You can create pretty cards for many occasions like wedding, love, family celebrations.
My three cards are simple but this is how I like to create. First card is made as a “Welcome home” card. I was inspired by the doors from Ephemera pack. I picked matching background from 6*6 paper pack. My title is made of two pieces – ephemera word and “home” made with puffy alpha stickers from the same collection.
Second card is perfect if you want to say “I love you” to someone you cherish. It doesn’t have to be a husband or boyfriend. I am planning to give this card to my mother, to remind her how important she is for me. I mixed light background with flower wreath from Ephemera pack. Tag shape adds some interest and makes is more unique.
My last card is perfect for wedding. It’s also simple but I love how this letterboard quote stand out. I fussy cut few flowers from “Magnolia moments” paper to embellish it a little bit.
And what about you? Do you like making cards for your love ones? I hope you will find my simple cards inspiring.
Thank you for stopping by.
XO Anna

Anywhere with you…


Hello everybody! Maryám here with you today to share a trio of cards I made using the beautiful On Our Way Collection.



Card 1: For this card, I used a beautiful map paper from the 6×6 paper pad and in the center, I made a window to create a shaker pocket. I also stamped and colored some little airplanes from the stamp set.

Card 2: For the second one, I decided to work with two main colors: yellow and blue. For the card sentiment, I added a word phrase from the die-cut pack and as embellishment a cute camera.

I was so happy to get a family photo this year on the Fourth of July, and I knew Magnolia Moments was perfect to showcase this photo. There are so many perfect quotes featured in the Frames package and I found one that was exactly what I wanted.

I added some ephemera and stitching to the frame.

Good Day Sunshine


Good Day Sunshine
Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a super summery page using the great On Our Way collection. I just LOVE the bright and vibrant colors in this line.

I created a watercolor like background on the center of my page and added a row of punched half circles to create a sun-like design. The golden yellow patterned paper is so perfect for some of those summer photos that I know you have been capturing lately!

Next, I added a large black diecut title to the center of my “sun” and added some thin strips of the rainbow striped patterned paper in the collection. I added more rainbow by stamping a rainbow of hearts along the bottom of my photo mats using the On My Way clear stamps and a variety of inks.

Bible Journaling


Hello friends!
I’m not sure if we have many bible journalers here but when I first joined this design team I mentioned to you that I really enjoy it. I know that it’s a fast growing craft and that a lot of papercrafters are choosing to spend time with God this way and I am definitely one of them.
There are so many products already on the market for bible journaling but as usual I like to think outside the typical box when it comes to my creative devotions. I love to use my scrapbook stash to expand my journaling supplies. When I first saw the new collection, Magnolia Moments , by Fancy Pants I fell in love with this door and all the pretty floral pieces. I used them as well as some coordinating paints and a few word stickers to create this page in my bible!
