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!

Homemade Cards

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.

What makes each card different is the placement of the diecuts, which were adhered with foam adhesive.

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.

Pretty Cards…Pretty Moments…

09/03/18

 

Welcome everyone. It’s Anna here with another Fancy Pants project. This time I have three cards for you, all made with “Magnolia moments” collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I love using vivid colors on my projects so i usually purchase colorful collections. Romantic is not my go to style but this collection is so pretty, inspiring and so easy to use. You can create pretty cards for many occasions like wedding, love, family celebrations.
1-1
My three cards are simple but this is how I like to create. First card is made as a “Welcome home” card. I was inspired by the doors from Ephemera pack. I picked matching background from 6*6 paper pack. My title is made of two pieces – ephemera word and “home” made with puffy alpha stickers from the same collection.
2-1
Second card is perfect if you want to say “I love you” to someone you cherish. It doesn’t have to be a husband or boyfriend. I am planning to give this card to my mother, to remind her how important she is for me. I mixed light background with flower wreath from Ephemera pack. Tag shape adds some interest and makes is more unique.
3-1
My last card is perfect for wedding. It’s also simple but I love how this letterboard quote stand out. I fussy cut few flowers from “Magnolia moments” paper to embellish it a little bit.
4-1
And what about you? Do you like making cards for your love ones? I hope you will find my simple cards inspiring.
Thank you for stopping by.
XO Anna

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!

Love Lives Here

08/07/18

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!!!)

Love-Lives-Here-STYLED

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?!

Marco Polo!

05/31/18

Hello Fancy Pants fans!
It’s Anna here and I have for you some fun, summer page made with “Poolside” collection. It’s my second project made with it and enjoyed making it so much. I have plenty of pool photos and I have been waiting for the perfect collection to scrap them. My favorite elements from this line are those funny swim – rings in different shapes and I thought I want to use a lot of them in one page.
 
1-2
 
I started with a white American Crafts cardstock and splashed it with some colorful mists to create splatters and break this white space.
 
5-2
 
I found those “pool” letters in the ephemera pack and I thought they will be just perfect to create a title. I added a second word “party” using puffy stickers included in this collection. 
 
3-2
 
Funny swim – rings from both ephemera pack and chipboard stickers found their place on my page too. I arranged them under and above my photo. 
 
4-2
 
I filled the empty spots with smaller elements like water splashes. 
 
2-2
 
This page is really simple and fast to make and you can easily recreate it using different creatures, matching your photo. I haven’t used any pattern paper in this layout. Mixing and matching embellishments is also fun and can be enough to make a page.
