Creative Card Trio


Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with a fun card trio featuring the On Our Way collection.
Today by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love the Planes, Trains & Automobiles stripe panel.  I used a oval die and centered it on the panel.  I used an ephemera piece from The Bright Side Collection.  Love how you can mix and match collections.

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.

This card duo were made especially for some friends that are both pilots.  Le’ts chat about the Flight Plan one first.

I’m smitten by this color duo, aren’t you?  So unexpected but fresh and fun.  I used a star die and added another star to the tag from the Tag collection.  I added a die cut hello from my stash.
thanks by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I’m mad for plaid, aren’t you?  I decided to just use a strip of the pattern paper so that the tag and ephemera airplane would be the star of the card.
I hope you check out the On Our Way Collection, it is filled with such fun colors and designs!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Welcome Banner


Hello, Friends! Maryám here with you to share a new Project using Fancy Pants Designs Magnolia Moments Collection.

For today’s post, I have created two garlands, one has a lot of rosettes and the other one has some banners/little flags.

Here is a look at both garlands:


For the first one, I created some paper rosettes and I added some chipboard spools to some of them. Once I had them all done, I adhered a piece of paper on the back because I wanted to hang them on my wall.



For the second one, I cut some banners and some circles from the back side of the ‘our story’ paper. I placed the circles over the banners and also added some of the puffy alphas and created the word welcome.

I hope you liked these ideas. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!

Good Times Ahead!


Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a project made with the new On Our Way collection.

Good time ahead full

It’s hard not to love the ephemera pieces in the On Our Way collection pack. The ephemera pack is jammed with perfect images for travel/holiday themed projects. I decided to use several of these ephemera pieces as the embellishment for my page, adding the bright striped patterned paper behind a simple piece of white cardstock.

Good time ahead cl1

And seriously, how fun is that Good Time Ahead piece! It made the perfect (and easy! Ha!) title for my page, just popped up with some foam adhesive for some subtle POP on my page. I couldn’t resist adding some stamped images along the bottom grouping on my page either, the fun stamps that are in the On Our Way collection are too cute not to use!

Good time ahead cl2

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!!
