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.
Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a sweet spring inspired all occasion greeting card.
This lovely tag has my heart. I just adore birds! I’ve popped the tag up on spacers on a layering of pretty patterned paper and a “frame” created with an embroidery hoop die cut from woodgrain paper. This is the Forest Tea Party collection from P13.
The color palate really compliments the nature inspired patterned papers. I am a sucker for swiss dots as a background as their small scale allows you to really appreciate what the pattern is all about even when buried under layers.
The crisp white die cut doily gives a neutral landing spot for the detailed sticker to be a real focal point.
Of course I can’t help myself but to add loads of flowers and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I had to customize the center flower to better coordinate with my card. By removing the darker blue layer from the back and the yellow stamen I created the perfect base to top off with one of the blue cherry blossoms, with the yellow removed of course the finished the whole thig off with matching stamens. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
Hello friends and crafty peeps! I’ve got a fun project to share today that I created with some extra cute Birthday themed stickers I picked up from Little Birdie Crafts.
This color palate is so bright and vibrant and cheerful. Also elephants with balloons am I right?
This mini album flipbook is 4 1/2 x 6 so it’s perfect to document all those pictures and memories of a special Birthday.
I’ve gathered a nice selection of flowers for this arrangement. Some are from Little Birdie Crafts and some are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Die cut foliage, loopy twine bows, and glittery stars help to fill in this arrangement.
I’m combing the stickers with some papers from my stash. What a great way to work through some older collections. I created my own “journal cards” so I could include these tip ins that add sooo much extra room for journaling.
If you’re trying to use up papers consider adding folded inserts. Covering all that surface really goes through the supplies.
I’ve come up with an easier way to add pockets. This one is finished with a zippy stripe and a sticker added on top.
A great way to highlight special pictures is to give them a fancy die cut frame and a bit of dimension.
I want a coordinated look when the flip books are fully open so I mirrored the elements on each side and used the same patterned papers.
Won’t you join me for a tutorial on how I created the base for this book…..
Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here dropping in with a sweet all occasion greeting card.
I created the focal image with a cute little house die. I cut the top with blue paper to coordinate then took the negative of the paper, flipped it over, and traced the cut out with white cardstock and clipped it out. This gave me a perfect background to fill in all those windows so the patterned paper didn’t show through.
The inside is finished with the coordinating paper.
I used a cross stitch hoop shaped die to create a border and even tucked in some “grass” for the house to be resting on.
Little Birdie Crafts flowers and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon to complete this sweet all occasion greeting card.
Hey there friends and crafty peeps! Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! What better way to show you I love you? Creating a St. Patrick’s Day Deluxe Creativity Kit! Of course I had to get into one and create some crafty projects. Here’s what I made….
Hello friends and crafty peeps! I’ve got a fun and easy to make hybrid project to share today inspired by a poll posed on my YouTube channel. I asked my viewers if they would like more tutorials featuring supplies from the dollar tree and it was a resounding yes. Some of the commenters mentioned that their local dollar tree did not have the most funnest supplies and that got me thinking I need to find more national chain stores that might be a bit more consistent with their stock and create budget friendly crafts with items that most folks were likely to be able to get their hands on.
I present to you the Loaded Pocket Easel Decor Baby Album….. in both boy and girl because I couldn’t bear to leave either one behind in the store.
The patterned papers used to create these pocket albums were found at Joann’s in the open stock paper aisle. Because they are single sided they are much more affordable.
The coordinating journal card sheets gave me loads of images to use to create inserts, tip ins, and even focal images to decorate the covers. I’ve finished off the extra deep pockets with pretty trims and flowers. And of course buttons and charms .
There are 4 large top folding inserts tucked into the pockets. They’re covered with the patterned papers and have pockets on the front to hold more tags.
For a more consistent look I finished the pockets and the backs of the tags with plaid papers. I’ve also mixed in a woodgrain pattern to help anchor the lighter colors and to provide a neutral background for layers to be added.
You can see there is soooo much room for pictures and journaling and it all tucks neatly into an easel display so you can add this to your nursery decor or gift it to someone special .
Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I just wanted to pop in with some pretty little cards I made with my newest obsession. Hand stamped flowers!
Before I talk more about the flowers I did want to say….how good is this paper????? I’m really into pairing the huge diagonal buffalo check with the smaller contrasting plaid. I’m using solid black cardstock to keep the layers from looking busy and topping it with my third pattern….polka dots! That die cut circle has the same border and a pretty doily die cut from crisp white cardstock.
Okay back to the flowers. I picked up a flower stamp set from Amazon that had a nice variety of blooms in different sizes as well as some leaves and stems. I picked the flower I wanted to stamp and cardstock in pretty spring inspired colors. I used a Misti so I could add multiple layers of coordinating inks onto the paper. Once dry I simply fussy cut them out. I added a center of dots created by pouncing different colors of dark gray Spectrum Noir markers and topped with a fine layer of black Stickles.
2 of my 3 flowers are added with foam spacers and 1 is added directly to the card base for depth and dimension. Small die cut leaves in a flourish pattern are added to help fill in the arrangement.
The sentiments are stamped as well and come from a pretty little set from Lawn Fawn. This set has a coordinating banner shaped die so creating multiple of the same sentiments was easy peasy.
I hope this inspires you to get out your stamps and create some awesome focal points for your cards and projects!
