Good morning FP friends.
Creating cards with my extra products is pretty fun. Easy way to use up collections that you have already picked apart! Right? For today. I have created two cards. One is bright and whimsical and the other, a little toned down with krafty colors.
Here is a closer look at the flamingo card. I used the Hello Sunshine Collection and it is perfect for my parents who spend the summer out in their camper at camp. Also, it is both of their birthdays this month. So, why not add them both to this card and then she can add it to her cork board as decoration after. I also love how the Hello Sunshine Straw with Swag looks on the card.
Like I said, the other card I made is a little less bright. Hope ever, it is inspirational and beautiful with the Artist Burlap Bow. I used the Dream Big Collection.
This is so fun. You have to give it a try. My envelope base for both cards are the Artist Edition bags.

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
Vicki here, sharing what I’ve been creating with the “Dream Big” Collection. I dressed up one of the Travelers Journals for a little something to keep in my car for starters. These are cute on their own or dressed up… a little or a lot. Whatever you choose. I added the saying along the bottom of the notebook and then created a little cluster of flowers and feathers from the Ephemera Pack.
Making cards is at the top of my favorite things list, so of course I couldn’t wait to make some with this collection. I lay out all the pieces in the Ephemera and Tag packs and pick thru them like a kid in a candy store. lol
I love this wreath looking piece, as well as the smaller inside round piece. I often use foam squares or foam tape for dimension but I thought I’d also add a little something else for interest to this card.
Before adding the wreath piece, I cut a piece of plastic from some other Fancy Pants packaging and added it to the back of the wreath. Once I had added it to the card with foam tape, I then added the center circle to the middle using foam tape again. Just a simple thing that really adds interest to the card.
I know it probably seems like I’m obsessed with the ephemera pieces the way I carry on about them, but there are so many and they are so versatile. I used them again on this card. Using different pieces to achieve a totally different look.
I think this would make a great graduation card. I enjoy sending handmade cards, and I think people really like receiving them. ( I know I do).
They come together quickly and when you don’t have a lot of time to commit to crafting but the creative bug has bitten you, creating a card might just do the trick!
The possibilities are endless with this fun collection.
