Fall Weather


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!

Tuscany Vacation


Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my second inspiration created with “On Our Way” collection. I am a huge fan of every travel / summer themed collection and this one is no exception. Bold, vivid colors are to fun to work with but the ephemera pack is to die for. I love all those funny inscriptions included into this pack. Just a real life “words”, because travels are not always perfect.
I really like stamp set that is included into this collection and I decided to use it to customize my background. You do not need much to make similar one – just a white cardstock and few colorful ink pads.
It took me like half an hour to get stamping done. I didn’t want to overload the page and cover the background so I decided to keep it simple. I cut the title using my Silhouette Cameo and 6*6 paper pad. It’s just perfect for cutting smaller elements.
My layout is about my favorite place I visited so far – Tuscany. Those lovely hills, with rows of cyprysses leading to traditional villas. Fields filled with grapevines and olive trees makes you want to sit and relax. Trully idyllic place.
After adding a title and picture and I picked few pieces from ephemera pack to finish my project. I also added flair button and few buttons from Flair and button mix.
Simple and easy. I will also add my journaling on the page but I wanted to keep it private :) I hope you feel inspired by my project and you will also reach for stamps to create your own background.

Creative Card Trio


Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with a fun card trio featuring the On Our Way collection.
Today by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love the Planes, Trains & Automobiles stripe panel.  I used a oval die and centered it on the panel.  I used an ephemera piece from The Bright Side Collection.  Love how you can mix and match collections.
Today close up by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love wreaths on doors.  I think it is a welcoming touch for guests.  The wreath and family ephemera do not have any adhesive on them.  The clothes pin anchors them on the card.

This card duo were made especially for some friends that are both pilots.  Le’ts chat about the Flight Plan one first.

I’m smitten by this color duo, aren’t you?  So unexpected but fresh and fun.  I used a star die and added another star to the tag from the Tag collection.  I added a die cut hello from my stash.
thanks by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I’m mad for plaid, aren’t you?  I decided to just use a strip of the pattern paper so that the tag and ephemera airplane would be the star of the card.
I hope you check out the On Our Way Collection, it is filled with such fun colors and designs!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Happily Ever After


Hello friends! Last month I shared a page I created in my journaling bible using products from the Magnolia Moments line! I’m back today to share another!
I loved the paper from this collection and when I saw this navy print with these tiny houses I knew I wanted to cut them out and use them as little pieces of ephemera.

On this specific page I’m documenting how living in the Spirit and being thankful for all my family, friends,. and neighbors is definitely a happy ever after! I cut the little houses to make a cute little neighborhood and even though this little tree wasn’t really a “tree” it worked out perfectly. It’s a simple page with a lot of impact and gratitude!

Again I hope this inspires you to not only think outside the normal bible journaling supplies but also look at different ways to use pieces of patterned paper in all your projects!
Until next time…cheers,

Pretty Cards…Pretty Moments…



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.
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.
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.
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.
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

Bible Journaling


Hello friends!
I’m not sure if we have many bible journalers here but when I first joined this design team I mentioned to you that I really enjoy it. I know that it’s a fast growing craft and that a lot of papercrafters are choosing to spend time with God this way and I am definitely one of them.
There are so many products already on the market for bible journaling but as usual I like to think outside the typical box when it comes to my creative devotions. I love to use my scrapbook stash to expand my journaling supplies. When I first saw the new collection, Magnolia Moments , by Fancy Pants I fell in love with this door and all the pretty floral pieces. I used them as well as some coordinating paints and a few word stickers to create this page in my bible!
