LOVE with Nicole


Hey everyone! Welcome back to the Fancy Pants blog – today I went BIG with my title using the great diecuts from the Sweet Nothings collection for my project.


LOVE full

Truth is, aside from the yellow background paper, the rest of this layout is all embellishments. I layered some Sweet Nothings sticky notes, with ephemera, puffy stickers and a lot of stitching!

The diecut letters have holes on the top of them, so I hid that with the great puffy sequin stickers and some pretty floral diecuts too!

Notebooks with Latisha


Hello there friends! Did you know Fancy Pants Designs makes several different journals and notebooks? Today, the journal used in the project is from the Hello Sunshine Collection.  This collection is all about tropical vibes and is so cheerful and happy. Journals and notebooks are very on trend right now, and todays project shows you how you can personalize your own.  I want to keep my favorite positive quotes in this journal, so using images and words will help reflect that.
Once the decision was made on how the journal was to be stored, (in a burlap bag) I got to work decorating the bag.  Using a few tags and diecuts from the Hello Sunshine Collection and cork stickers from the Dream Big Collection.
Using a few of the flower and flamingo diecuts, they were adhered to the front of the journal
One of the tags had a really great quote on it, so decorating the page was centered around the tag.  A few more diecuts were added as well as the cloud paper clip from the Dream Big collection.  I love how different collection work perfectly with each other!

Hi there Fancy Pants fans, I am here to share a layout I created using the Family & Co. line  My husband and I planned to sneak away for a few nights to Las Vegas over the holidays and although our plans were almost cancelled, we managed to make it an awesome trip. I knew I wanted to remember the story, so it was my focus for this layout.

Favorite Adventures with Mary-Ann

Favorite Adventures with Mary-Ann



For my post today, I dug out some older photos to document a trip we took with friends to the city.  We are not far from Boston and love to get in there and explore as much as we can.  We still get lost!!

Take Note has a school vibe to it, but I also got a travel vibe.  So, I decided to embrace the travel part of the collection to create todays layout.


When I saw the cork paper, I decided to create a cork board with black cardstock as my frame.  I dangled the photo clumps to represent how I would hang items from a board.


I added my title haphazardly to the map 4×4 Brag Card.  Actually, I used 4×4 Brag Cards as the base to all of my clumps.


I cut papers from the 6×6 paper pad along with tags from the Attwell Collection to create my blocks.


How could I not use the work from the ephemera?  I just trimmed of the words and inserted him so he would peek out from under the photo.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Must be Love with Nicole

Must be Love with Nicole


Good morning Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a project using the Sweet Nothings collection. I love the mix of color in this collection and it was perfect to document a photo of my parents from their 50th anniversary!

must be love full

I started by layering several papers in the collection together and then diecut a large title from my digital die cutter from the fun pink patterned paper in the collection.

I filled in the title area with puffy stickers, ephemera and some layered die cut flowers from my digital cutting machine again.  I just love those puffy sequin stickers!

Hi there crafty friends,

Today I’m sharing a layout I created for Fancy Pants using their gorgeous Sweet Nothings collection from last year. I think this is still my favorite Valentine’s line, the colors and patterns are just so unique! Which is actually why I’ve always loved Fancy Pants so much!


I chose the black and white striped paper for my background, because I think I haven’t used this one for background before. To add a bit of interest and a little accent, I adhered two different strips of papers at the bottom of the page.

For my title I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe and I backed the letters with a few different patterned papers. I added foam adhesive to the letters so I have a nice dimension on my layout.


The photo I chose is a really bad quality photo, however my kiddo’s face is priceless (he was still chewing on the last piece of his steak haha) and I love everyday captures like this so I scrapped it anyway. I layered some tissue paper and tucked some tags behind my photo to add a bit of color and texture. I also attached a couple of embellishments at the top, die cuts and a cute heart clip.


I hand stitched around the little heart in the letter A, glued a puffy sticker heart in the middle. Lately I’ve been using eyelets again, so I added one in the middle of the heart and hung the tags from the hole.


I then glued down the photo and the cut file too, side by side, and started decorating the title. For this I used a few die cuts, puffy stickers and tags.


I popped up some of the embellies on the title, to create extra dimension. To finish off my layout, I stamped the date, wrote the journaling and scattered some puffy sticker – and die cut sequins around my page.


So that’s it for today guys! I hope you like my layout and get inspired to get crafty!

Thanks for stopping by today!
