This week we will be highlighting projects made with the new Take Note collection from Fancy Pants Designs! I just adore the several themes you can find in this collection – back to school, work and even the everyday!

I created this page using several items in the Take Note collection:

I just love the navy floral paper in this collection and it was perfect to balance out the bright yellow striped paper. Who doesn’t love that composition book front black/white paper combo too!

I diecut a floral background from JustNick Studio and added lots of buttons to the centers, and tied them with twine. I added a great title from the Ephemera Pack as well as some stamps to complete my title. I used the 6×6 paper pad to layer behind my photos.

I really love how this one came out, so simple but lots of pretty items all from Take Note! Make sure you stick around over the next couple of weeks as our Design Team shares more fantastic projects, all using Take Note!

Zsoka here with you today with some Halloween inspiration.

We don’t celebrate Halloween here. Well many families do, but I’m wondering if they even know what it is about? It is not a European holiday…

The only thing I do, if I don’t forget, is buy some pumpkins so the kiddo and I can carve some. It’s so easy to do, last year I had to promise him that this year we buy more so we are not ready with carving in 10 minutes! He loves it so much and was very proud he could easily do it alone. He carved the face, I carved Boo. I remember taking several pictures last year but I can’t for the life of me find them. The only one I found is the one I posted on Instagram (Instagram is good for something ha!). So that is what I used for my layout.

The new Spellbound collection is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! I absolutely love everything about it. I’ve always loved the purple added in the Halloween lines but the additional mint is just so super awesome! If you buy only one Halloween collection, you really have to get this one! 20170923_163202FINALbanner

I chose a pumpkin cut file from the Silhouette Design Store for my main design element. I backed the pumpkins with two different orange papers and the leaves with some other papers from the collection. I added foam adhesive to the back so I could tuck my picture and a couple of die cuts under it.


I also tucked some tags and die cut pieces under my photo and attached a couple to my photo as well, using my tiny attacher. I love that spider web! |And I think my favorite pieces in the ephemera pack are the bats; they come in different colors, black, purples and mint. I added a few of those here too.


For my title I also chose a die cut piece that says Boo – I love the font and I like the fact that it is not big! As a last step I wrote my journaling below the spiderweb on the right side, added my date on a label at the bottom left and splattered some black ink around the page.



This is the second Halloween page I have ever made and I kept thinking while I was working on it that I wish I had more photos! Only because I love love love this collection!

I hope I could inspire you somehow, even though I’m not a pro on this topic!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day!

Halloween witches FP

Hey Everyone! Vicki here today, sharing a bit of spooky fun.  I was so excited to see this super cute Halloween collection from Fancy Pants called Spellbound

I was seriously checking the mail daily, waiting for this collection to come!  I had a project in mind before it even arrived.

I wanted to create a pair of these witches shoes with it.  It’s fun to plan out what papers will be used for each different piece. I really like using the 12×12 sheets for large pieces and the smaller prints from the 6×6 pad for the little accent pieces.  I pretty excited about the fun striped pattern. Perfect for the witches socks, don’t you think?

There are so much fun things in the Ephemera pack that I could have used on the shoes, but I decided on the word “Halloween” , the spider web and the bats.

I wanted my shoes to be free standing so I attached them with a strip of cardstock at the back of the heal.  I had adhered the paper to the chipboard with adhesive sheets before die cutting it. I used my die design from AccuCut but  ( if you don’t have this die, or a die cutting machine, you could find a pattern online and cut it could by hand). It would also make a darling album of course.

With all the fun papers and ephemera  in this collection, where are tons of different ways you could create a pair of these shoes.

You could also make the legs longer and stick them upside down in a big bowl of candy. Wouldn’t that be fun?

Any way you do it, I know  you will feel inspired when you get your hands on this collection!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Treat Sacks | Latisha Yoast


Friends, did you know that in the Spellbound Collection from Fancy Pants Designs, there are Halloween themed treat sacks? There are! So, go find them and buy them now, because I think they are going to sell out quickly.  These treat sacks are the perfect way to give away candy or a gift, whether it be for Halloween, or a trunk or treat, or a birthday party.  Easy Peasy is the name of the game.
First I scored the bags at the 6 inch mark, to get a perfect fold.  Then I added the candy to the bag, folded the flap and held it in place with one of the stickers that comes with the sacks.
Next I used the tags and ephemera packs from the Spellbound collection as well to decorate the bags further. One of the tags is actually from the Holiday Hustle line, it just happened to match perfectly!
Its really that easy friends!!

Oh how I love the new Spellbound collection! I had photos from last Halloween that I had yet to scrapbook, and couldn’t wait to create the page.
I love, LOVE the moon paper (All Hallows’ Eve) that included in the line, and it was perfect for my background. Fancy Pants never disappoints with their ephemera and they always include words, which I love to use for my titles. I added some puffy stickers from the Sweet Nothings line for the year.

The spider web ephemera really finished off my layout.

Halloween Cards | Zsoka Marko

Halloween Cards | Zsoka Marko


Hi crafty friends,

Zsoka here, popping in to share my latest project for Fancy Pants Designs!

This time I made three Halloween cards with the super awesome Spellbound collection. Here they are:


I picked three cut files from the Silhouette Design Store and cut all of them from black card stock.

This one below originally had Halloween written in the middle, but I removed that and instead I welded the remaining spider web with the Boo cut file that is a Halloween font, also from the Silhouette Design Store. I backed the pumpkins with orange paper to give them more definition. What I didn’t notice until my kiddo pointed it out is that the pumpkins look like eyes. Even better! I adhered the cut file to a purple patterned paper, to which I added a black patterned paper and all this I glued to the white card base. To decorate the card and add some dimension, I stitched some cute buttons on and added some die cut pieces as well.


For my second card I used a circle cut file with lots of bats. I backed this with a polka dot patterned paper, added foam adhesive to its back and adhered it on my card base. This consists of 4 layers: the white card base, a black ghost patterned paper, orange and mint papers. To embellish it I picked out some die cut pieces from the ephemera pack. Isn’t that owl the cutest?!


For the third card, which I actually made first, I used the negative cut file. This one took a while to piece back together as I backed it with different patterned papers! All the small pieces had to be glued down one by one. For the sentiment I used my favorite striped paper from this collection and for the rest I used some mint, orange and purple papers. Then I glued all this down on top of an orange patterned paper and a white card base.


I love how these turned out and since we don’t celebrate Halloween, I’ll be sure to send these to American friends!  They won’t be wasted :).

I hope you are inspired to create your own Halloween cards and surprise some friends with them!

Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
