Fancy Pants Christmas Collections | Monday Craft Madness #23

Can you believe it? Christams is just 23 weeks away!  Normally I am the queen of procrastination but I decided to use Today’s Steal Fancy Pants Christmas Collections to get started on my Christmas cards. So today’s Monday Craft Madness theme is:


Create some cards to use now or in the future. Finishing a set brings such a sense of accomplishment. Here’s what I created:

I used the Oh Deer collection kit and I LOVE how many different papers were included.  Traditional looking holiday papers as well as awesome solids and less-holilday-like patterns. You can really use much of this collection for just about any project.

Check out some close ups of the cards, I hope you will be inspired to create some cards of your own.

Simple Stories So Fancy | Mid Week Mojo Lilac #2

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

We alway seem to be looking for good, basic boy and girl collections. We do, after all, seem to scrapbook for our kids adventures the most. I have totally fallen in love with  Simple Stories’ So Rad & So Fancy Collections It was perfect for today’s Mid Week Mojo The one year photos of the adorable Jovi seemed perfect to match the girly So Fancy collection

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Simple Stories always has such great collections and embellishments that match, this collection is no exception. From stickers to enamel dots, I fell in love one embellishment at a time.

The chipboard frames are great for adding dimension and extra photos to a layout. Show off that cute face with the different sizes of frames.

As always a little pop dot goes a long way. Along with the Bradz and enamel dots, the ephemera die cuts can create some awesome embellishment clusters on your project.

The base of this particular paper created a perfect title for the layout. I just added some of the chipboard stickers and changed the title from ‘fancy’ to ‘fancy girl’.


A big congrats to Margaret Roberts, you are last week’s winner!
