Hello, dear friends! Maryám here with you today to share a new project using Magnolia Moments Collection.

maryamp_sep18_fpd_project1-01

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:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day!

The Road Less Traveled

09/18/18

Hello crafty friends. It’s Anna here with my newest project created with “On Our Way” collection. I just love those bright colors and fun graphics included in this line. I think it’s my favorite Fancy Pants collection so far. I am a big fan of every summer / travel themed items because I love scrapbooking our family vacations. There are always so many feelings and memories behind those pictures. This time I decided to use photo of a splendid view we had on Monte Capane while we visited Elba Island.
1-2
I wanted the picture to be a main focus of my page so I printed it big. With large photos on layouts you don’t have much space left for embellishing. I used this narrow strip under the picture to add colorful stripes of paper cut of 6*6 paper pad. I decided to use grey paper called “Now bording” as a neutral background.
2-2
We took a car trip around the Elba Island, enjoying views, climbing mountain and taking some beach time. That’s why I picked some retro cars from ephemera pack along with mountain silhouettes as an embellishments. Title came easy by connection big “adventure” with Elba word created with alpha stickers.
3-2
I love how colorful this layout is and how well you can see this wonderful view with sea and mountains on it. Big pictures look so well on pages.
That is all for today. Thank you for stopping by and see you soon.

Adventure Layout

09/13/18

It almost seems fitting to have a great big road sign for a road trip, right?  Well I found a FREE cut file from Paper Issues that works perfectly for the On Our Way Collection.  It is called Travel Signs.

Adventure-Styled

I started with the road map paper, cause its my fave!  I then cut out the cut file and layered my ephemera and photos.  Thats it.  With the large road sign, there was not room for much else.

Adventure-Clump

Adventure---Title

I wasn’t sure where to place my journaling.  So I printed it really small across the white stripe on the cut file.  Perfect place for it and it does not interfere with the flow of the page.

Adventure-SQ

Thanks for stopping in today.  Get out those travel photos and get them scrapped!

Tuscany Vacation

09/12/18

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.
1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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.
5
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

09/11/18

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.
Flight plan duo by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
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!
