Hello, Friends! Maryám here with you to share a new Project using Fancy Pants Designs Magnolia Moments Collection.

For today’s post, I have created two garlands, one has a lot of rosettes and the other one has some banners/little flags.

Here is a look at both garlands:


For the first one, I created some paper rosettes and I added some chipboard spools to some of them. Once I had them all done, I adhered a piece of paper on the back because I wanted to hang them on my wall.



For the second one, I cut some banners and some circles from the back side of the ‘our story’ paper. I placed the circles over the banners and also added some of the puffy alphas and created the word welcome.

I hope you liked these ideas. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!

Happily Ever After


Hello friends! Last month I shared a page I created in my journaling bible using products from the Magnolia Moments line! I’m back today to share another!
I loved the paper from this collection and when I saw this navy print with these tiny houses I knew I wanted to cut them out and use them as little pieces of ephemera.

On this specific page I’m documenting how living in the Spirit and being thankful for all my family, friends,. and neighbors is definitely a happy ever after! I cut the little houses to make a cute little neighborhood and even though this little tree wasn’t really a “tree” it worked out perfectly. It’s a simple page with a lot of impact and gratitude!

Again I hope this inspires you to not only think outside the normal bible journaling supplies but also look at different ways to use pieces of patterned paper in all your projects!
Until next time…cheers,

Homemade Cards


Magnolia Trio Set
Hello Friends! I know a lot of you really want to start creating cards, but it seems really hard. If that thought is crossing your mind, you could be overthinking a design.
Today I have a super simple set of cards, that can be created with just a few items
This card set is using the new Magnolia Moments collection.  It has that Urban Farmhouse look that is so on trend right now.
The base of the cards are all the same. White cardstock, with two different pattern papers adhered directly to the cardfront.
What makes each card different is the placement of the diecuts, which were adhered with foam adhesive.
My advice, is to start with a simple design. Then create a bunch of cards with that design until you are bored with it, and then repeat with another simple design.

Gather. Family. Hi. Card Trio


Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with a fun card trio.  I’m featuring Magnolia Moments Collection!

Let’s start with the Family Wreath.

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.

My next card is one that will go postal to one of my friends.

I’m gathering with friends for a brunch this month.  Summers are tough to coordinate schedules so I always cherish our time together
My final card is my favorite:

The Letterboard Embellishments are truly amazing.  I really wanted it to shine so I just backed it with a panel from the Magnolia Moments collection.  That sweet bird is from the coordinating ephemera pack.

Good Times Ahead!


Hey there Fancy Pants fans! Nicole here today to share a project made with the new On Our Way collection.

Good time ahead full

It’s hard not to love the ephemera pieces in the On Our Way collection pack. The ephemera pack is jammed with perfect images for travel/holiday themed projects. I decided to use several of these ephemera pieces as the embellishment for my page, adding the bright striped patterned paper behind a simple piece of white cardstock.

Good time ahead cl1

And seriously, how fun is that Good Time Ahead piece! It made the perfect (and easy! Ha!) title for my page, just popped up with some foam adhesive for some subtle POP on my page. I couldn’t resist adding some stamped images along the bottom grouping on my page either, the fun stamps that are in the On Our Way collection are too cute not to use!

Good time ahead cl2

Pretty Cards…Pretty Moments…



Welcome everyone. It’s Anna here with another Fancy Pants project. This time I have three cards for you, all made with “Magnolia moments” collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I love using vivid colors on my projects so i usually purchase colorful collections. Romantic is not my go to style but this collection is so pretty, inspiring and so easy to use. You can create pretty cards for many occasions like wedding, love, family celebrations.
My three cards are simple but this is how I like to create. First card is made as a “Welcome home” card. I was inspired by the doors from Ephemera pack. I picked matching background from 6*6 paper pack. My title is made of two pieces – ephemera word and “home” made with puffy alpha stickers from the same collection.
Second card is perfect if you want to say “I love you” to someone you cherish. It doesn’t have to be a husband or boyfriend. I am planning to give this card to my mother, to remind her how important she is for me. I mixed light background with flower wreath from Ephemera pack. Tag shape adds some interest and makes is more unique.
My last card is perfect for wedding. It’s also simple but I love how this letterboard quote stand out. I fussy cut few flowers from “Magnolia moments” paper to embellish it a little bit.
And what about you? Do you like making cards for your love ones? I hope you will find my simple cards inspiring.
Thank you for stopping by.
XO Anna
