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.

School Time Organization!


Hello friends!
Do you have children who cannot find a pencil, ruler or any kind of school supply at home?  We all have some kind of empty jar laying around.  With just a few supplies, you can make super cute containers to hold these supplies.
Grab a paper trimmer, adhesive, foam adhesive, pattern paper and diecuts.
The pattern paper measures 11 x 2 inches, permanent adhesive was placed on the back of the paper. Wrapped around the jar, then embellished with an ephemera die cut from the On Our Way Collection.
The On Our Way collection is so bright and colorful, so perfect to coordinate with all of those different school supplies!
Decorating jars not only make a work station cute, it provides an affordable way to organize all of our stationary supplies.
Thank you for visiting today! How do you use scrapbook supplies to help organize your home?

You are so loved.




It’s my turn on the blog today!  Every once in a while I jump in on the action and collaborations with other companies!  This month we’ll be sharing the PageMaps projects we worked on early in the year!

Here is my finished layout and the sketch I followed just below it!



These sketches always give me a head start and makes my creating so much easier!  Sometimes I forget they are available at my fingertips… it makes documenting your memories so much easier when you are stuck!

Here are a few close ups…I used The Bright Side Collection for my project and went with a dark background…one, because the sketch looked that way haha and two, because it really made my photos and products POP off the page!





Happy Day and thanks for stopping by!

Love Lives Here


Hey there!

I loved the Magnolia Moments so much, I created two layouts for this months assignments.  We recently visited my grandparents.  It reminded me how people used to just pop in to each others homes.  We still drop by my grandparents home.  They are always there and always welcoming.  I snatched this photo of my boy with his great grandparents.  (BTW, they are 91 and 92 and have been married over 75 years, WHAT!!!)


Keeping all the small embellishment to the left of the layout, created a fun effect and draws your attention to the reds in the photo.  Which is the people!  The important part, right?!




Thanks for stopping by today.

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.
