Celebrate All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a very vintagy and sweet all occasion greeting card.

I’m using the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Cottage Fields collection. For this card I really distressed the edges of the paper and for even more texture I stitched along the borders with a haphazard and messy stitch line.

I’ve even added additional detail by layering on different shades of Distress Inks to the leaves.

Here’s a combination of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts with Little Birdie Crafts to create a wreath effect. A few finishing touches include pretty vintage buttons, metal charm, and loopy twine bows.

Woodland Tag Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a nature inspired greeting card.

I am really obsessed with mint these days. I love the softer palate and I think it pairs so well with woodland styled projects. For this card I’m combining a pretty woodgrain pattern with pages from my new Hobby Lobby paper pad and using the little deer tag from P13 as a focal image.

The die cut wreath was also a Hobby Lobby score. It was not part of a collection but I think the coordinate so perfectly and gives the tag a little more presence.

I’ve also gathered a garden full of pretty flowers to make a matching arrangement. Some are from Prima and some are WOC from Really Reasonable Ribbon. A little alteration to the focal flower and it all comes together to make the perfect combination.

P13 is a new to me brand and so far I’m really loving it. If you want to check it out I found it available from Scrapbook.com

Tri-Fold Folio Loaded Pocket with Tutorial

Standard

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with another fun hybrid project. This time I’m combining a loaded pocket with a tri-fold folio.

I’m using the Simple Vintage Cottage collection from Simple Stories. I’m really loving the beautiful nature inspired prints.

For the cover I’ve layered up a few of the patterns and die cut one of the journal tags to create a focal image.

The flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts and coordinate perfectly with the color palate.

The tri-fold part of this mini provides me with places to add tip ins and pockets with folded inserts for loads of space to include pictures and journaling.

It also allows me to add larger pieces of the patterned papers. If you’re trying to use up a collection this is a great way to get through a lot of paper!

The loaded pocket portion is there in the middle. I’ve created another page like the one on the left for a nice consistent look.

Plenty of room in the pocket to tuck in additional inserts and other flat keepsakes and memerobilia.

Won’t you join me for a tutorial?

Vintage Easter Bridge Card

Standard

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a pretty vintage inspired holiday card with a twist.

I’ve created my first bridge card. For some reason I thought these were way more complicated but when I realized it’s basically a double z card with an additional element it really made it much less intermediating.

I was able to incorporate all my favorite layering items like flowers and trims.

Having the bridge portion spanning the full width gave me room to include a die cut doily and a large scalloped cut sentiment.

The inside acts like a bit of a shadow box and has a sweet image die cut into a tag shape. There’s an additional doily this time in a rectangle and some fun and festive Easter charms and vintage button. This was a great way to use up some papers from my stash!

Slimline Nautical Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a nautical inspired card in my favorite layout. Slimline! Now just because it’s my fave to make…..does not mean it’s my fave to photograph lol.

I had so much fun layering up these shades of cool blue patterned papers that coordinate perfectly with the sail boat image. I added a navy cardstock border to keep all the busy patterns separate. This shape also affords me an opportunity to stretch out the design and incorporate additional elements like the little die cut banner.

The tag with the boat was part of a larger 3 x 4 cut apart that I trimmed down with a stitched edge tag die. It fits much better now and it has extra detail. A nautical compass charm seemed like the perfect accent and adds a little shine.

I created the blue focal flower for this arrangement using the same navy cardstock so I know it matches perfectly. It’s layered up with some white flowers , netting, die cut foliage, and loopy twine bows. A short and sweet sentiment makes this card work for any occasion.

Thinking of You Greeting Card

Standard

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Well it’s safe to say I am obsessed with the Woodland Tea Party collection from P13. The patterns and color palate are so warm and rich and the images are gorgeous woodland inspired nature focal points.

Isn’t that the sweetest deer you’ve ever seen? I love it so much!

The darker patterned papers are brightened up with the addition of the die cut doily and image. I’ve incorporated a little banner at the top and layered on a vintage buttons and flower charm.

Because this is a warmer palate I was able to bring in some earth tone flowers to create a generous arrangement filled in with die cut foliage, netting, and mica flakes.
