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.

Summer Card Trio



Hello Friends, Latisha here with you today with some easy peasy cards.  None of these cards need any fancy technique, die cutting machine etc.  Just a paper cutter, adhesive and Fancy Pants Designs product.
For these cards, I went through some of my favorite older collections that had the same vibe and feel, where things could be mixed and matched but still look coordinated.  This first card, has a few layers of pattern paper, then some buttons and epoxy stickers.
Finding pattern paper and die cuts from ephemera packs that coordinate from separate collections is so much fun.  Making cards does not have to be hard, complicated or have a ton of techniques.  The process is what is fun for me, plus having something pretty to mail to someone is the bonus.
Don’t be afraid to create custom sentiments. Utilize all of those stickers, tags and buttons that you have been saving, and make some cards out of them.  You can make so many in on sit down creative session.  Its relaxing and so much fun!

Bright and Happy Birthday Invitation


Hey friends, Stephanie here to share another creative tip!
Have you seen that meme that says something along the lines of all my friends are sharing vacation photos and I’m over here like I went to Walmart! Haha… well that’s me.
I haven’t been on a trip in awhile (hopefully soon, though) but I didn’t let that deter me from using the Take Me Away collection to create something awesome! I mean I love the bright fun colors and the fun patterns. And when I saw the “planes, trains, and automobile” paper I knew I had to create something for my son who is in love with all those things! In fact this paper and collection worked perfectly for creating a fun birthday party invitation!

I used my Silhouette to cut a large “3” from the pattern paper.I used some small photos and a few pieces of ephemera for details… the detour and road signs were perfect accents!

Up Up + Away Travel Notebook


On Our Way Traveler’s Notebook!
I had a notebook from the Take Note Collection that I wanted to use in my B6 planner, but I had no idea what to do with it.  Until I saw the On Our Way Collection.  It is the perfect notebook to pair with the ephemera and diecuts from the On our Way Collection.
The notebook was decorated with 6×6 paper from On Our way, and several diecuts from the ephemera pack.  I just used a strong adhesive to ensure they cannot fall off.

One Hour Flip Album!


Hey friends! Stephanie here to share something a bit different today!
Lately I’ve been battling a little creative block and I hate when that happens. I know we all go through it and I wanted to share some fun tips to overcome it.
I challenged my self with limited supplies, no photos, and 1 hour of just good ol’ crafty fun! I used the 12×12 journaling card paper from the Take Me Away collection, a few scraps of coordinating paper, the ephemera pack, glue, pop dots, and my sewing machine (which just happened to have yellow thread loaded).
I chose the 12×12 journaling card paper and once I cut them down I had 10 bases for a flip mini album. I went through and decorated them with the coordinating ephemera and some stitching.

I love how this project turned out and now I have a fun album ready to add photos of our next trip.
I think sometimes the idea of editing, printing, and preparing photos or figuring out where to start can deter us from getting anything done. But now you know you can just pick a handful of supplies and just start making something.
Have fun and let the creative juices start flowing again. And I guarantee that once you’ve challenged yourself and accomplished a project like this you won’t be able to stop making!

Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my first project created with brand new “Magnolia moments” collection. It’s filled with lovely patterns and heart warming quotations. It also carry some really awesome and extraordinary embellishments, like letterboard embroidery hoops.
I started my project with picking the base paper. I really like this “Picture perfect” pattern with small frames. I look second, exactly the same paper and cut some of the frames once again. Using 3D foam squares, I placed them one over another creating fun texture.
This portrait of my daughter didn’t need much to shine. I picked Small “Hi” Letterboard Embellishments as a part of my title. I added rest of it using Puffy alpha stickers. I also fussy cut some of the magnolia flowers from “Magnolia moments” paper.
Those chipboard spools look like real and I love the texture they add to the page.
Adding a little bit of soft pink splatters and enamel dots was a perfect finish of the page.
I have an unboxing video if you want to see “Magnolia moments” collection in full bloom.
You can find the stores that carry Fancy Pants collection using a Store finder.
Thank you for stopping by.
