fANCY tHAT fINDS.......

Finally we are back in the blog step at a time we are getting back to normal but normal is not what we want.

We will soon be announcing our Design Team for 2013 and compared to last year we were overwhelmed.  It was only when we attending the craft shows that the interest in designing took off!!!

Our dies.....Fancy That are designed by me.....Emilia but manufactured in the USA buy the same company that manufactures most of the wafer thin dies you see today.

These are the dies of the future and are so light and easy to store compared to some of the thickers dies not to mention they are priced extremely well.

We have received overwhelming response regarding the price and designs. So we know we are doing something very right!!!

Thanks you for all of your feedback and positive comments......after the last 7 months I have had, the people I have met at the craft shows have reminded me how worthwhile this really is.

Enough about me....I wanted to share a few things we found and hope these projects will inspire you to make some amazing creations.  I love the cards and scrapbook pages Leanne Allinson makes.  She inspires me everytime I visit her blog.

This gorgeous card found over at Our Little Family blog used the Fancy That Bow Tie small die.
How cute!
Another gorgeous scrapbook project from 'Our Little Family' blog.  The Fancy That Doily Flower 1 was used and only available at The Papercraft Hub.  I never though to use patterned paper but how effective is this????
Love it!
Come back soon for more Fancy That Finds and soon we will be previewing work from our designers.
Cheers All!

Looky here.......Fancy That's new release

We are so excited to share the latest release from Fancy That dies due in Australia next week.
We would normally wait until the dies have arrived in Australia and have been packed but we are too excited to hold it in any longer.
Here they are and we hope you love them as much as we do.
If you would like to place a pre order, please email with your request.
Lastly, here's a little bit about the 35 dies in this release:

  • As with most of our dies, you can use the positive and negative die cut.  In this release we have designed the the Chunk Number and Chunk Alphabet wallpapers with a frame.  You will see this in the image below.  Our wallpaper dies will always have a frame.
  • The windflower heads can be mixed and matched with the stems.  You could even use the stems to go with our rolled flowers or StackerZ.
  • The StackerZ can be mix and matched to create your own unique flower.  Couple these with our rolled flowers looks spectacular and adds incredible texture and dimension to your project.
  • The Harlequin Wallpaper is another gorgeous addition to our range of wallpapers. Designed to be the background on standard card sizes but tear it up or leave as is for another layer on your next scrapbook page.
  • Our doily flowers have been so popular that we have added another 2 to the range. 
We would love to hear what you think of our latest release.
Leave a comment by COB 3 March 2012 AND email us at and one lucky person will get some blog candy.......a Papier Blossom (mini) die.
Have a great day!
