Today Fancy Pants Designs welcomes Tanya Privalova as a guest team member.  We love Tanya’s beautiful style and she let us know that she had so much fun creating with two great creations.

Tanya lives in the Ukraine and has a lovely shabby, layered style that features lots of details.  She creates fabulous cards, layouts, mini albums, and altered items and you can find her at her blog here.

What is your favorite kind of project to create? As you can see… I love to make cards and layouts. :) Cards can be very different… simple… or many layers and detailed. Layouts help to save the memories and make my wall in the room more beautiful!

– What is your current favorite FPD product? Oooh… FPD has sooo many products! I love very very much stickers. They are the perfect touch for my layouts. I love tags and die cuts. Of course paper is also very beautiful, trendy and inspirational!

– How has your work grown throughout the years?  First of all I started to create layouts… and love this very much till today.  My style went from very sweet, romantic and shabby and became more… American, bright and more full of meaning. I always try new tips, combine new patterns, and use new materials to have everytime new challenges for my creativity. :)

And now for Tanya’s projects!

Adorable Cake

LO 1_1

This layout was inspired with my summer passion: cooking! I cooked many pies, cakes and different other yummies. :) As an accent I decided to use kraft paper, sewing lines, some flowers and thread.

One + One

lo 1_2

Here I used many die-cuts and beautiful tags, adding some white fabric and sewing lines. This layout was inspired with our summer photo… or remembering all the great walks this summer season.

Life is Good

lo 2_1
With very fun photo about our hugs and love to laugh. Here I used many details with hearts. Also I added ribbon and a little rose for adding some more romance to my creation.  The thread on the tag I fixed with a stapler.

Motivation Card

I made this card with such sign… just because! I think this card can be a great creation for my mood desk. For the sign I chose different letters and added a sweet button-flower and a bow.


Life is Better With Friends Card


On this card I decided not to stick the sticker completely, but leave the ends not fixed.

 Clean and Simple Card
