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!

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.

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?

Candy Bag


Hello friends!
Today I have a quick and simple way to package a party favor, or a surprise treat for movie night.
Fancy Pants Designs has many pre-cut alpha die cuts, in packages, ready for you to use. This is so helpful when you want to create something in a pinch. For this project I used one of the FPD kraft bags, and decorated it with letters, diecuts, ephemera and buttons.  All it needed was some candy to put it.
