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.

Homemade Treats and Decor


Hello friends!
Today I am sharing a quick and easy way you can turn store bought (or homemade) treats into something beautiful.
To get started I grabbed the Ephemera pack from the Magnolia Moments collection, skewers, scissors, foam adhesive and red line double sided adhesive.
For the bigger cupcakes, I made the cupcake toppers larger using larger die cuts, and smaller diecuts for the mini cupcakes.
For one of the toppers, I decided to use the embroidery hoop embellishment.  It is very light, and was very easy to adhere to the stick.
This is the perfect collection to welcome someone home. It could be a deployed spouse, child coming/going to college or on a mission.  This line exuded love, home and family.
Do you use your scrapbook supplies to create DIY cupcake toppers?  If so tag us on our social sites, so we can see what you are up to too!!

Let’s Go!



Are you a collector of postcards?  Recently we went to Hershey Park in PA and I collected 2 different ones.  I was thinking that I would use them in the scrapbooking layout that documented the trip.  I did not think that I would cut them and have them be part of my title!  But I love how it looks and you can still can see the advertisement on both of the cards.


Since the title was busy and I had lots of photos, I kept the embellishing to a minimum.  I did use one of the cute frames from the ephemera pack and a few geo tags.




Instead of my traditional strips of journaling, I contained my information on one of the tickets from the ephemera pack too.

Simple layout.  But lots of fun.  I included both post cards and I call that a win!

Oh, the cut file is from Paper Issues and it is FREE!  It is called: Let’s Go.

Candy Bag


Hello friends!
Today I have a quick and simple way to package a party favor, or a surprise treat for movie night.
Fancy Pants Designs has many pre-cut alpha die cuts, in packages, ready for you to use. This is so helpful when you want to create something in a pinch. For this project I used one of the FPD kraft bags, and decorated it with letters, diecuts, ephemera and buttons.  All it needed was some candy to put it.

Good Stuff Gifts


Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
It’s Amy T back with you again with a giftie duo.  I’m featuring The Bright Side Collection!
The Good Stuff duo by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I tend to collect items that are fun to embellish or alter.  The frame is from Ikea and come in a multi-pack for a great price.  I started off by setting the background with the green stripe panel.  All the papers are from the 6×6 paper pad.

I die cut a coffee cup using the floral paper, topping it off with a solid black lid and an upcycled coffee sleeve.  I love looking with the Ephemera packs and went a bit crazy picking out goodies.  I varied heights by using foam adhesive squares.
I decided to add a coordinating card.
Sending Sunshine by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
To continue the green stripe theme, I used a band of it for my card.  I die cut the sending in black cardstock and added a stamped sentiment.  I thought that the kite would be perfect for the design and finished it off with white poms.
I have so many coffee loving friends and can’t wait to pop this in the mail to one of them.
Amy T.
