Hit the Road!

09/20/18

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

Hit the road full

There is just something about the fun mix of patterns in the On Our Way collection that I can’t get enough of! I just love that bold yellow dot pattern, and mixed it with the simple teal grid on a plain white cardstock background. The bold colors blend nicely with the help of some awesome ephemera  to tie it all together.

I added in some buttons from the Happy Place collection that co-ordinate so perfectly with these fun colors! Just love the street sign ephemera, so perfect for documenting some of those summer road trips.

I used the chipboard letters from the Family & Co collection to make a bold title, mixed with the enamel letters in the  On Our Way collection too. Love that mix of fonts together. Can’t get enough of those chipboard letters either!

Hello, dear friends! Maryám here with you today to share a new project using Magnolia Moments Collection.

For today’s project I’m using a photo I took this fall while we were walking home. The idea of this layout started with the photo. I decided to recreate the way home with the help of the papers and embellishments of the collection.

At the bottom part, I added some little houses I fussy cut from one of the papers, some die-cuts, and some chipboard shapes to represent our neighborhood. Also added a door die-cut beside the photo and a cute phrase at the top.

Here are some close-ups:

I hope you liked this layout and feel inspired to document your everyday photos. You don’t have to wait for the perfect moment when you have amazing little things around you.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

At the Beach!

09/14/18

Today I am sharing a layout about my silly boy at the beach. I used On Our Way along with a couple of pieces of ephemera from Poolside  These two collections work great together, like most of Fancy Pants Designs collections do.

I loved the camera from the ephemera pack in On Our Way, and it went perfectly with my kiddo’s silly pose for the camera.

I added my journaling at the top of the page for balance.

Adventure Layout

09/13/18

It almost seems fitting to have a great big road sign for a road trip, right?  Well I found a FREE cut file from Paper Issues that works perfectly for the On Our Way Collection.  It is called Travel Signs.

Adventure-Styled

I started with the road map paper, cause its my fave!  I then cut out the cut file and layered my ephemera and photos.  Thats it.  With the large road sign, there was not room for much else.

Adventure---Title

I wasn’t sure where to place my journaling.  So I printed it really small across the white stripe on the cut file.  Perfect place for it and it does not interfere with the flow of the page.

Adventure-SQ

Thanks for stopping in today.  Get out those travel photos and get them scrapped!

Homemade Cards

09/06/18

Magnolia Trio Set
Hello Friends! I know a lot of you really want to start creating cards, but it seems really hard. If that thought is crossing your mind, you could be overthinking a design.
Today I have a super simple set of cards, that can be created with just a few items
Magnoliatriocards1_Sept_latishayoast
This card set is using the new Magnolia Moments collection.  It has that Urban Farmhouse look that is so on trend right now.
Magnoliatriocards2_Sept_latishayoast
The base of the cards are all the same. White cardstock, with two different pattern papers adhered directly to the cardfront.
Magnoliatriocards3_Sept_latishayoast
What makes each card different is the placement of the diecuts, which were adhered with foam adhesive.
Magnoliatriocards4_Sept_latishayoast
My advice, is to start with a simple design. Then create a bunch of cards with that design until you are bored with it, and then repeat with another simple design.

Adventure!!

08/29/18

Ok, I really had a hard time narrowing down my photos for this layout idea!!!  Problem is,  I wanted to clump a ton of photos all on one page!  I think it is successful because of the On Or Way Collection.  I know it seems like lots of patters, layers, photos and cut files, but it works for me!

Adventure

Adventure---car

The station wagon cars included in the ephemera pack are not what we drive nowadays, but I think it is a fun play on telling the story that we drove for this trip.

Adventure---THat-way

Check out this FREE Cut file from Paper Issues, it was specifically designed to go along with the On Our Way Collection.  

Thanks for stopping  by.
