The Lovely Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings Collection!

Good day everyone! I am sharing my latest layout using the oh-so-lovely Fancy Pants Sweet Nothings collection! I love the pop of sunny yellow that is mixed in with the traditional Valentine's Day colors. But the cool thing is, you don't have to use this collection just for Valentine's Day. It is a great collection for documenting anything or anybody that you love! And, great news! It is still available in the Paper Issues store! And use the code Tegan to take 20% off your entire order!

My favorite thing in the collection is the ephemera pack! I quickly and easily layered the tower and banner with the puffy flower sticker to complete my layout. And I used the sentiment die cut from the ephemera pack as a super easy title.
I just love all of the pieces of this collection. The Sweet Nothings Tags and Labels pack contains lots of great tags that are perfect for journaling. And I can't get over how adorable the hot air balloon patterned paper is!

Thanks for joining me today everyone! I hope I have inspired you to document someone or something you love!

Cute Goody Boxes!

Anyone have a tea or cookie lover in their life? These cute goody boxes are for them!  I used the Echo Park Paper Happiness is Homemade collection, which is just beyond adorable! I am crazy about the sweet patterned papers in this fun collection and I used my two favorites for my boxes. Don’t you just love the teal floral and red gingham patterns?! The 3D Handle Tie Treat Box cut file I used is available in the Silhouette online store.


I die cut the first box using the floral Homestyle Cooking patterned paper. I then secured the box top with a simple bow and finished it off with a dainty flower sticker. Layering the fun ephemera pieces and stickers help me easily finish my box! Enamel dots from the I Love Christmas collection add dimension.


I die cut the second box from the red gingham Kitchen Essential patterned paper.  I again secured the box top with a coordinating bow and added a little flower sticker to it. I layered cute stickers to quickly embellish the box front. Is that little tea canister not the cutest?!? My sister loves tea and she is absolutely going to love this little gift set!
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to craft a couple goody boxes for the sweet one in your life!

An Out of this World Card!

I am IN LOVE with the new Carta Bella Space Academy collection! The colors are so much fun and the graphics are out-of-this-world adorable (pun intended)! My first project using this collection is this cute card I am sharing today. But the crafting options don’t stop here. I can also see this being a great collection for kid’s room decor or a space adventure party ensemble! Space Academy is definitely my new favorite collection! Space Academy is now in the Paper Issues online store and you can take 20% off your entire order when you use the code Tegan!!

I started by die cutting some small random sized circles from a piece of Carta Bella Paper Natural White Linen Designer Cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo. I then used various patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad and the red geometric patterned paper to back my card base. I used foam adhesive to adhere the papers behind the circles to add dimension.

The earth sticker and the futuristic space traveler girl sticker are definitely some of my favorite pieces in this collection. Who said space travel was just for boys, anyways?!  I used a few enamel dots from the I Love Christmas collection to add a little more dimension to the cut out circles.

I then layered another cool sticker emblem over the “Space Pilot” ephemera piece to finish off the card. I had a blast creating this card!
Thanks for joining me today.  I hope I have inspired you to get creative with the new out-of-this-world Space Academy collection. Happy crafting friends!

I also used the free (YES, FREE!) chevron banner cut file from the Paper Issues store as well! I simply just shrunk it down in size a little bit in the Silhouette Studio software. I then backed each chevron opening with a different fun patterned paper. I used foam adhesive to add dimension. LOVE this chevron look! Be sure to head over to Paper Issues now to download the chevron banner cut file!

This fun collection was perfect for documenting the silly selfies my niece and I were taking while on our recent family vacation.

I am a huge fan of the letter stickers from the Addison sticker sheet, which is also available in the Paper Issues store! Be sure to check it out! And I seriously can not get enough of the star patterned papers!
