Good morning! How fun is it that Fancy Pants has this great new summer collection called Hello Sunshine! Recently my boy had a few friends over to swim and the photos turned out so bright and colorful. I knew I wanted to use a pennant and I believe the yellow ‘hello’ one, from the Felt Pennant Series was just what my layout called for!
I started by layering the pennant with Hello Summer ephemera. I used foam tape and and wet adhesive to ensure that it would stay attached to the felt. Since the felt had the stick that raised it, I also used foam tape behind the entire felt panel to raise it up as well.
I used a FREE cut file from Paper Issues for the fun fish that I cut from pretty blue paper. These boys are so much like fish! They could swim all day.
I hope you have been inspired!

Zsoka back with you today with a new layout yay!
Have you guys seen the new collections?! I think they are fabulous! I especially love the Hello Sunshine collection, designed by the amazing Amber LaBau! I can’t help it, I just love bright colors!
I used this collection on today‘s layout. How gorgeous are the colors and patterns in this line?! Full of summer! I picked two photos of my son playing in the sand at the beach in Barcelona.
I chose a floral cut file I had from the Silhouette Design Store and cut it in several different sizes. Some of them I mirrored so they don’t all look the same. Then I backed the petals with patterned papers. I left the leaves empty because I love the airy feel to them.
I tucked a couple of leaves from the ephemera pack under the flowers, just to add some interest.
I only added a couple of embellies, mainly pieces from the die cut pack. I felt like this layout didn’t need more.
For my title I also used a die cut. I just love the versatility of the ephemera pack! A quick journaling, the date and some black splatters finished off my layout.
I hope you love this collection as much as I do! It’s just such a vibrant and happy one! Enjoy X
Hey everyone! I LOVE making and sending hand made cards (oh, and receiving them also of course… just in case anyone wants to send me one lol). I try to have extras made up so when I need one I have some to choose from. I have always had a little (very plain) box in my studio that I used for cards, but I thought it was about time to spruce it up a bit. So today I’m going to share with you, three new cards I made with the Life is Beautiful collection and my new “styl’n” box to keep them in.
First here are the cards individually.
There are so many beautiful ephemera pieces for layering and adding interest to your cards. I really like adding foam tape or mounting squares to some of the pieces to add dimension. Aren’t these colors just so yummy??
There are so many pieces to choose from, it’s easy to find something to fit what you have in mind. These pieces certainly make putting a card together fun and easy. I think I am so much more likely to hand make a card if I know it’s not going to be a huge time commitment. With this it’s all together: all the coordinating pieces to create in a snap. I don’t have to feel like I’m dragging out everything in my craft room.
The box I was using for cards was just an old cigar box. It’s just not the traditional size and shape. (I think that’s why I liked it so much). It’s the perfect size for the A2 cards and envelopes I use.
It was fun and easy to dress up.
This is a great collection to create with. I hope you leave feeling inspired.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hey everyone, Amy here to share a layout I created using the Good Fellows line from Fancy Pants Designs. With two boys, I always need good boy lines and Good Fellows totally fits the bill. It was perfect for a layout about my oldest’s recent big hockey championship. Of course, the felt pennant makes the whole page, doesn’t it? Here’s the layout I created.
Here are some closeups. I actually used some fun embellishments from the Joy Parade line. It’s so perfect that the Fancy Pants Designs lines coordinate so well together.
This title is also from Joy Parade.
More embellishments from Joy Parade paired with some from Good Fellows finished off the layout.
Thanks for visiting the blog today!
I love memory keeping, not only photos of my son or my family, but also about my travel journeys and about food. I used a delicious ramen photo in this spread. This spread is about my Japan trip last fall.
When I do some spreads I start with my color combo. I chose black and red as the color combo and you can find it within the Sweet Nothings collection.
I pasted the photo on the right side and also the story behind the photo. The other side I decorated with a hexagon paper cut that you can find it in the collection.
I preferred not to make my spread too vintage and full because I wanted to focus on the photo and also the story.
