Card Set | Latisha Yoast


Hello Fancy Pants friends! Did you know that Fancy Pants creates stamp sets that coordinate with collections? Yes they certainly do!  Todays projects is a DIY note card set & coordinating box.
Die cut two sheets of pattern paper for the box. Then die cut a rectangle or any shape in one of the diecuts, this will be for the top of the box that allows to see inside of it.
This is was the box looks like put together. Now lets fill it.
I picked out a few different papers from the Family & Co collection, one that can be stamped on and then another to be layered.
After the house image was stamped, color in with your favorite coloring medium, these were colored in using Copic Markers.
For added interest and contrast, the sentiment was stamped in black, and the hearts were stamped in red.
These are going to be flat postcard style cards, where your write on the back of the card.  Die cut white card stock and adhere to the backs of the stamped fronts.
Place the cards into the box
Tie ribbon around the box and tie a tag to the bow to complete the set.

Cards | Mary-Ann Maldonado


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.

We are family canvas | Vicki Chrisman


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.

We are family canvas

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!

Back to School project | Latisha Yoast

Back to School project  | Latisha Yoast


Hello friends! Today I am sharing a fun back to school craft, that is easy enough for your children to help out.  With some children heading back to school, this is the perfect apple to bring to a teacher, without worry of it going bad.
First we are going to need to cut some circles.  However you decide to cut them is fine, you can manual die cut them, electronically cut them, or trace a circle onto paper and cut out with scissors. I used the Daydream Believer pattern paper from the Fancy Pants Designs Dream Big collection.  For this project 16 3.5inch circles were used, which was almost two sheets of paper. Once the circles are cut out, score them in half.
Since you will want the red side of the pattern paper to show, place adhesive onto the “b” side of the paper.
For a little more depth, and also to cover any white parts of the paper showing, ink the edges of the paper using red ink.
Using the Follow Your Dreams pattern paper, create a stem and leaves.  For the stem, I just rolled up a scrap of the paper, and I freehand cut the leaves with scissors.
Attach the stem into the apple and adhere the leaves and die cut from the Dream Big Ephemera set to the stem.
This was so easy to make, and I hope it inspires you to create one too!
Materials Used:
circle die
red & green ink

Traveller’s Notebook & Cards | Vicki Chrisman


Hey friends!

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.

note book vicki

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.

dont stop believing card vicki

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!

it all starts with a dream card vicki

The possibilities are endless with this fun collection.
