Fancy Pants Designs Everyday Circus | Monday Craft Madness #16

Today for Monday Craft Madness  we are excited to bring some projects from Laurel Seabrook, member of Fancy Pants’ Design Team she used Everyday Circus to make some awesome cards. I just fell in love with them when I saw them…. So today’s theme is:

Cards

Create some fun cards or show us some of your favorites. Here’s what Laurel created:

I love how she used the “Posters” 12×12 patterned paper as her base for the cards.  Adding some other papers and embellishments and a little bit of stitching she created some awesome circus-themed cards.

Check out some close-ups of each card. I love how she used the tickets to add a little pizzaz to the cards.

Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #9

Daffodil – Week 9 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I’ve been a bit on a journey this year so far. I’m going through self-discovery as well as trying to concentrate on more positive things. Today’s collection, Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish Tis a perfect collection to help remind myself to work on being a better person. While the collection has a definite travel vibe, it also has a great sentiment towards shifting your focus.  Today’s  Mid Week Mojo has something I rarely do, a picture of myself.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I love the tags, stickers and embellishments Fancy Pants creates. They always seem to match whatever project you are working on.

The variety of chipboard and plastic buttons are awesome to add your dimension and interest to your projects. One of my very favorite pieces are the title cards. They are a little ‘fancy’ but also perfect for your layouts and mini albums. It seems they choose the perfect quotes for every project I start working on.

A big congrats to Gail Owens, you are last week’s winner!

Fancy Pants Me-Ology | Monday Craft Madness #9

I love to see projects created by manufacturer design teams. I found something on the Fancy Pants Blog that caught my eye. While the Me-Ology Collection is perfect to document your every day life, these gift bags made by Michelle Philippi are super cute. We decided to borrow her cute project for today’s  Monday Craft Madness  Today’s theme is:

Gift Giving

Create something for someone, a gift tag or a gift bag. Check out Michelle’s gift bags:

Michelle started out with making her paper bows.

After creating the bows, Michelle chose some of her favorite pattern papers and library cards to create the base of her gift bag decorations.

It’s amazing to me the different looks you can create with one collection. Michelle was able to different gift bags with the same idea and same collection.

I love the idea of creating multiples of the same item so you have it on hand when you need it.  Gift tags, gift bags, cards and more are always things I am looking for at the last minute. I may take Michelle’s idea and run with it.

Fancy Pants True Friend | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #3

Daffodil – Week 2 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

When I first saw the True Friend Collection from Fancy Pants long before we had it here on ScrapbookSteals.com, I kept seeing images of my good friends I have met through working here. Friends from near and far I have had the pleasure of meeting through our community here at Steals.com. Each one has touched my life in one way or another, but for today’s Mid Week Mojo I wanted to honor one of my favorites. She has impacted me so much and one day I hope to grow up to be just like her – I love you, my dear Sheryl. This is the perfect color scheme and collection to honor my friendship with this wonderful woman.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

The happy colors of this collection remind me of Sheryl so much. She has such a zest for life and so much love in her heart I hope every day I can have a little of what she has.

Sometimes we all need to know we are loved, I know I do. I also know that I join many many of our Scrappy Sisters in the love we have for Sheryl.

The envelopes and file folders in this collection are perfect for a little tag with some hidden journaling.

And oh those trees…I can handle how much I love them. So cute and so much texture and dimension, Fancy Pants has knocked it out of the park with those.

Here’s hoping we all can find someone in our lives that is an inspiration to us. Find that someone for you and let them know. Sheryl, I adore you and you inspire me each and every day!

Fancy Pants Be. Loved. | Monday Craft Madness #4

It’s the season of love these days and I can’t seem to get enough of Valentine’s themed products. I always want to create something for the hubby, but most years I run out of time. I was super excited that today’s collection is a Valentine’s collection. Today for Monday Craft Madness I used Be. Loved. from Fancy Pants to make a canvas for the hubby….. So today’s theme is:

Love

Create something about someone (or something) you love, for someone you love or because you love. Here’s what I created:

I saw a similar project when I was visiting the Doodlebug Design offices back during Halloween and thought it would be great to create a heart for Valentine’s Day.

I chose some of the neutral gray designs to create part of my heart and to serve as a background.

I purchased a couple of small wooden hearts from a local craft store that I covered with some of the pattern papers. I loved the dimension it added to the project.

I filled in the rest of my heart with the fantastic embellishments included in this kit. Along with a couple of photos of the hubby I really love how it turned out. Here’s hoping the hubby likes it just as much.
