Hi everyone! If you are like me, you have a LOT of photos to scrap from the holiday season. I couldn’t wait to scrapbook these pictures of my son baking gingerbread men at his school, and I grabbed the new Holiday Hustle line and combined it with some of the Merry and Bright line to create my layout.

These two lines combine so easily, just like most of the Fancy Pants Designs lines do.

I added a few more embellishments along with one of the puffy stickers to the side of the photo for some added fun.

Travelers Journal/Planner | Latisha Yoast

Hello friends, Latisha here with you today!  I am a planner when it comes to traveling.  I like to have a schedule, but also leave extra time in each day to nap, be spur of the moment or to allow extra time for whatever.  Next month, I will be going on a cruise with a few friends, so I started a Travelers journal/planner for my trip using the Take Note collection.

For this main page, I added a page tab on the side of the paper.  Trimmed down a piece of 6×6 paper with the map, adhered a few Take Note Ephemera die cuts and then created a title using Sweet Nothings black alpha stickers.

For the next header page, again adhered a tab on the side, trimmed down a piece of paper from the Take Note 6×6 paper pad, adhered Ephemera die cuts, and placed a strip of Good Fellows Plaid Washi tape

For this next page, I wanted to create a space where I could put ticket stubs and brochures.  I cut down a piece of pattern paper from the Take Note 6×6 paper pad, and applied washi tape to the edge, so that tickets will not get caught on the edge.  Used the black puffy stickers again to create a title and then adhered down a Take Note 4×4 brag card.

When I go on my trip I will bring a pencil bag full of supplies to work on my notebook while on the cruise.  Creating and decorating Travelers Notebooks are so simple yet so fun!

Waiting for Santa

Waiting for Santa

Hey scrappers! Nicole here today to share a layout I created using the Holiday Hustle collection. I know, Christmas is over, but I am still feeling festive and want to get those memories put to paper!

Waiting for Santa

I started this page with a whole heck of a lot of circles! Last week, I shared some cards that I created with the leftovers from this project to give you some ideas of what you can do with all those extras laying around after a project like this one. I punched many circles from the Holiday Hustle 6×6 paper pad, along with some red foil paper too in varying sizes.  I laid the circles in a border shape around my page and then stitched them down with my sewing machine.

I added a diecut “bow” to the top of my photo gift box for a splash of sparkle to my project. All that was left to do was add in a cute title and a few stamps and diecut ephemera pieces to my project.

Morning!

Do you have lots of winter or Christmas photos to document?  I have to tell you, we went to the Santa Parade last year and it was one of the warmest days of the year.  That is not typical for New England!  So, if I can document warm winter activities, so can you.  The best collection to use is the Holly Hustle line, right here, from Fancy Pants.  It has all the blacks that I LOVE in a collection.  With touches of tradition colors.

I layered papers, brag cards and ephemera to get the look I desired.  I then added a tiny button to the center of the store front!

I felt like adding a city scape to the top left worked too.  Since Santa was parading all through our town on firetruck.

Hope you are inspired to create!

Hi scrapping friends, I am excited to share a layout I created using the Holiday Hustle line from Fancy Pants. It was perfect to use on a layout of my guy visiting Santa last year. I decided to use a free cut file from Paper Issues on my background, which you can find here.

Fancy Pants makes it so easy to add a lot of fun touches to your projects by using their ephemera packs, and this banner was perfect for my photo.

I added a few more pieces of ephemera to the top of my journaling block to balance it out and I was finished.

I couldn’t love this layout any more, I hope you like it too! Thanks for visiting the blog today!

Good morning Fancy Pants Designs fans! Do you need some last minute holiday card ideas? I have a couple cards to share today using leftovers from an upcoming project using the Holiday Hustle collection (stay tuned) that I was able to put to good use for a few last minute cards that I needed for this holiday season.

Holiday cards

See a theme? Circles. Love me some circles and a trusty circle punch will take you far! I punched several circles for another project and has too many left over to toss. So, why not build some simple patterns on some cards right? I started with the tree shape, moving different sized circles around until I got the tree shape just right, adding in some holiday required sparkle to any gaps in the design.

Joy card

I finished this one off quickly with a JOY stamped tree stump from the Merry & Bright collection. These stamps are so perfect to add a little holiday greeting!

Next, I still had more punched circles left over – so I created this card with a confetti like feel for the circles this time.

Again, I added in a stamped sentiment and more bling – a requirement for holiday cards, don’t you think!
