Fancy Pants Designs Everyday Circus | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #8

Pansy – Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Is your home a circus every day? I know mine is. Between school, homework, football practice, work shifts for my kids, my work, housework and all of the reality TV I need to watch, it’s a wonder I get anything done.  Fancy Pant’s Design’s Everyday Circus help you celebrate the everyday circus in your life. As I was looking through the collection for today’s Mid Week Mojo I noticed all of the word stickers and how motivating they can be. I chose a cute picture from my co-worker and decided to create a layout full of all of the expressions that applies to Zach.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the many many alpha stickers come in these collection kits, so many colors and sizes to choose from, along with the tab stickers, you can always get the date on your layout.

I love the die cut pieces created to match this collection. From banners and candy to clowns and circus animals, they are sure to fit into any project you are creating.

All of the word/phrase stickers included in the collection kit perfectly describe little Zach and the hopes and dreams we have for him.

Add the flair buttons and pop dots to some die cuts and you can have a circus of your own.

Fancy Pants Designs Burlap & Bouquets | Monday Craft Madness #30

I’ve been looking at this collection since the release days, just loving every bit of it.  It’s so pretty with an earthy twist on it. It has made me smile so I decided I needed to make something that I could look at every day. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Fancy Pants Burlap & Bows to make a bouquet I can give to a friend….. So today’s theme is:

Flowers

Create something with flowers, floral paper or floral embellishments. Or even create a layout about the beautiful garden you are cultivating. Here’s what I created:

This was a pretty quick and easy bouquet to create, I did a pinwheel from solid cardstock, added some buttons and die cut flowers from the ephemera pack. I love the burlap bows in this collection, I added them to the bouquet also.

The small tags included in this collection have some really great sayings. I trimmed them down to just the words and matted them on some paper.

I also just added some of the large flowers from the ephemera pack to the sticks and included them in the bouquet.

The ephemera pack also had some great quotes I matted one and included in the bouquet.

Finally I filled a mason jar up with some rice and added a card to the front that included one of the small tags and some of the buttons.

I know just what friend I want to give this to, to thank her for all of her love and support. I hope it makes her smile.

Sneak Peeks From Our Favorite Brands

Last week I was able to go to a little trade show, right here in Salt Lake City. I have been in and around the crafting world for over a decade and this is the first time I was able to attend a show without boarding an airplane first. This was a small show and closed to the public, so I thought I would show a little of what I was able to see from some of our favorite brands. (Please excuse some of my iPhone photos)

My Mind’s Eye

Bo Bunny

Echo Park & Carta Bella Paper

Silhouette - I’m loving what they are doing with fabric.

Graphic45

Lawn Fawn

Simple Stories

And last but definitely not least…

I have been trying to pick a favorite for days now, but I just can’t.  Do you have a favorite? Let us know!

 

Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas | Mid Week Mojo Pansy #4

Pansy – Week 4 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

As we continue our month long inspiration from super scrapper Brenda Smith, we get to see how she used Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas for today’s Mid Week Mojo

• • • • •

Good morning! Today, I’m working with the gorgeous, traditional Christmas line from Fancy Pants, Merry Little Christmas. With so many different takes on Christmas paper these days, it’s refreshing to see the traditional colors and imagery.

First, the sketch:

And the layout: 



Christmas is certainly my favorite holiday (besides my birthday!) and it’s funny that I take so many pictures leading up to the day, but then have a severe lack of pictures of Christmas Day proper. Guess I must’ve just been living in the moment. ;) So these pictures aren’t the greatest, but they show what both my kids got from Santa and that little Santa embellishment was so cute, I HAD to use him.



I used the red corrugated paper to mat my photos and I feel like it gave it a good amount of dimension and texture. I punched out stars to go over my circles on the right and then layered even more with some of the dimensional embellishments from this line. This layout came together so easily with all the wonderful die cuts and embellishments. As always, I look forward to seeing what you create with the sketch. Happy scrapping!

Fancy Pants Nautical

As you are reading this blog post, I am in sunny Las Vegas with my middle daughter Lizzie. We took a road trip for the weekend to attend a concert. Part of my planning for our girls trip was to create this journaling album that I can fill out during the trip. My daughter is quite funny and says the funniest things and having a place to document it all will be fantastic. The Fancy Pants Nautical Collection was the perfect travel-themed collection for this project and the mini brag book…well how many times can I say perfect?  Check it out:

I love the title on the cover, it fits famously with our concert-going weekend. The little envelope on the front will hold our receipts and trinkets from the trip.

 

 

These mini brag books are so cool, in addition to pages with lines for journaling there are plastic sheet protectors in two different sizes so you can add the photos easily. I tried to think of the things that would happen during our road trip and pre-plan some pages.

I liked decorating the back of the journaling pages as well, makes for a fancier journal.

 

 

Did you see what concert we are going to attend? I am so excited.

 

We will for sure make some time to go to the pool while in the sunshine. This page that is titled ‘Pool Time’ is also a pocket page where I can save more trinkets from our trip.
