"A Note of Love" by Fancy Pants + Giveaway!


There is nothing more fun than hunkering down in my craft room with just me and a super cute paper collection. I really outta do it more often! Well, recently I found some time and I spent an evening with Fancy Pants new Valentines collection "A Note of Love" and I gotta say, I love the results!

The projects were specifically done for my 1st segment on "My Craft Channel" (airing February 11th!!!). I really wanted to focus on Decor that you can start and finish in a reasonable amount of time without using much more than the paper collection and items you already have at home.


The Fancy Pants collection practically did the work for me thanks to all the fun designs. I really loved the variety of paper, stickers and punch-outs that were included. In addition to the double sided cardstock it also included a sheet of pink corrugated cardsotck and a sheet of red glitter paper which were really fun additions.

Here is what I put together:


This cookie cutter wall hanging is so much fun! There is just SO much you could do with some cookie cutters and cute paper! I used some embellishment glue to adhere the paper to the cookie cutters. Make sure you use the thick side of the cutter as the back. It is a bit thicker and gives you a little more for the paper to adhere to. I ran ribbon down the back and used a hot glue gun for that. The back doesn't look too great so I tacked mine to my door so it doesn't move around. You could do a backing piece so that the back side looked nice as well. I used a metal ring from an office supply store for the top with some tulle wrapped around the edges. Hurry and get your cookie cutters. I bought a set of 5 at Walmart and 2 more individually at Hobby Lobby. They were already picked over a bit.



I have a bunch of "staple" items that I keep on my shelves and then I change them out for different holidays. I use these candy/candle dishes quite a bit and just switch out the vinyl and embellishments. My kids love them too, since candy appears in them every so often.



This "kissing booth" page was the first thing that drew me into the "Love Notes" collection. It is SO cute! Actually it is part of a 12X12 sheet of paper. The paper would be super cute in a layout but I cut it out instead and made this banner. My 8 year old smiles every time she sees it! The 2 small banner's were punch outs in the collection and I used a sticker strip to cover the clothes pins.

This 12X12 frame from Ikea is another one of my family room staples. I change it out for each holiday. If I don't have holiday decor on display I like to use a recent layout from a vaction or family photo. The best part of this is that the grey vinyl is on the outside of the glass so the paper is still good as new and I can use it in my album after the holiday.

If you are interested in "A Note Of Love" for yourself - Fancy Pants is generously supplying one of our lucky fans with the complete collection. Enter below AND Good Luck!!

Also, mark your calendars- my first segment on "My Craft Channel" will be February 11th. I will be highlighting these projects!!

  13. As my other half usually has to work on valentines day, and our babysitter is usually busy we curl up on the sofa after the kiddies have gone to bed eating takeaway & watching a movie. As long as we're together we're happy.

  14. I usually make the kids a valentine bag with candy and hide it around the house (too cold and snowy to this outside in my neck of the woods) and then leave four or five clues leading to the next clue and then ultimately leading them to the bag of goodies.

  17. My Valentine's tradition...hmmmm, yes, it's telling my husband over and over not to get me chocolate, because I'm on a diet and I'll just eat the whole box in a day while secretly hoping he'll get a small box anyway, because then I'll have to eat it or it would just be a waste of money, right? LOL!

  21. Our Valentine tradition has always been a romantic dinner at home & some us time. However, last year my husband gave me a scrapbook (thought it was odd considering I buy them whenever I want), but this one was special. Inside it was a 2 page layout my husband made for me using photos of us on our 1st date. Secretly hoping he'll add a few more pages to the book this year.
