Hello friends!  You might have noticed how BUSY we have been with our new scrapbook releases, our new stationery line AND….we’re still not done announcing exciting things!

Today, I am so happy to share with you that we have a special event coming to our offices in June!  We will be spending a full day –12 hours to be exact–creating, eating, playing, laughing and hanging out!  We have some AMAZING projects lined up from paper crafting and memory keeping to home decor and gift giving!  This is an all around event whether you love scrapbooking, love DIY or just love creating–you won’t be disappointed!

We’ve invited some very special guests to teach at our event–each designer offers their own unique style and expertise–here’s a look at who will be there!


Many of you know Celine Navarro (she was Fancy Pants Designs Design Team/Blog Coordinator in 2013) and is a wonderfully talented, well-know paper artist!  She will be teaching you how to use paper in new ways, with new mediums, and using items that can extend beyond pages to projects and home decor–all while preserving your memories!  You’ll work on (and hopefully complete) a mini album and layout project!

Celine resides in France and is currently planning a wedding with her fiancé, Damien!  She is one of the CEO’s of Green Frog Studio Editions, which publishes {entreARTistes} magazine.  She is also the author of the Scrapbooking : Inspiration et Techniques book published by Le Temps Apprivoisé. Celine teaches worldwide and online and is excited to be in Utah for this one day event!

Jodi Sanford is the Founder, Owner and Creative Director of Fancy Pants Designs, Inc.  Jodi will be teaching you a class all about gift giving!  There are so many unique ways to give great gifts and using craft supplies and paper to make them is easy and fun…and makes the gift personal!  You’ll create a creative gift jar for someone special, plus get lots of other ideas for gift giving!

Jodi resides in Utah, where she’s lived her entire life!  She has a fabulously, fancy family–her husband, Jared and their 4 children!  They live just minutes from the Fancy Pants Designs offices and are often seen on the pages of the Fancy Pants Designs catalogs, blogs and more!  They keep busy with the family business, sports, and travel.  Jodi is so excited to host this wonderful event!

Tausha Hoyt is the author of the fabulous design blog Sassy Style Redesign. She is a redesign/repurposing extraordinaire and will be teaching us all about using crafty on-hand items to create amazing things for your home!  Thinking out of the box with your paper, party or other supplies, is Tausha’s specialty!  You’ll learn ways to create with everyday items and make custom projects for your home, your friend’s home….the possibilities are endless!


We are located in Ogden, Utah (40 minutes north of Salt Lake City for all you Utahns that want to join us)!  And, we’re  just a short drive from Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, right?  I hope you’ll join us!  Contact me for more details on the event and registration.  We really do have limited space in our offices, so if you want to come, be sure to get with me!

And, we’ve got something  else FABULOUS to share with you!  Our own, Kim Watson, has created our first official e-magazine newsletter featuring members from our design team and a special guest designer!  Each month, we’ll have FRESH, never before seen ideas and inspiration in our newsletter… be sure to sign up now to receive our emails/newsletter (you can sign up HERE)!  We know you will love it!  Check out the MAY 2014 Issue now by clicking on the image below!


I hope you all have a very wonderful weekend…and just maybe I’ll see a few of you at the National Stationery Show tomorrow- Booth #2657!
