Holiday Merry Wishes Tag


Hey there Peeps. Ginny here to share a very festive Christmas Tag I created with many of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and some fun patterned papers and embellishments.
I created the base for this tag with the Coved Rectangle Stitch and Cut die using the middle size to cut 1 from 110lb cardstock and 1 from red cardstock. I adhered these together to make a sturdy layer to add the rest of the sections.

Using the next size down in the set of Coved Rectangles I cut a layer from red checked paper and attached it with spacers between.

To add texture and detail I tucked in a section of Gauze Border that I snipped to fit and dovetailed.  It’s held on with glue and a funky giant paper clip.

Christmas flowers are the funnest to make and these were a (slightly messy) blast.  I created the Poinsettia with matching red cardstock and accented the tips with Sugar Glitter Paste before assembling. The center is  pieces clipped from a berry pick and given a light coat of alcohol ink to color it to coordinate. The white flower is the  Gardenia cut with crisp white.  Every flower arrangement needs leaves so why not use Holly shaped leaves with a little inking on the edge and Stickles to make it extra festive?

A few last details like this Tiny Kaleidoscope  Doily , chipboard sentiment and pearly accents are perfect for this tag and finished off with some snappy red and white stitched ribbon.

Inspire Bird Mixed Media Greeting Card


Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a greeting card I made with loads of mixed media supplies and a digital image from my shop. The bird in the images was the inspiration for the card. The bright feathers and flowers steered me towards choosing lighter colors with not too much contrast so as not to be too busy. Instead I’m using texture to create detail.

Jolly St. Nick Creativity Kit and Projects


Hey there Peeps! This is a very exciting post for me today as I’m sharing the projects I created with the new Jolly St. Nick Creativity Kit . Which I love. A lot. I was a Boy Scout Widow this weekend and I spent all my time in my shop playing paper and watching kids movies.

Here are the projects I created with the kit….


These two large (4×6 inch) tags both  have ornament chippies but with very different styles. The one on the right is a shaker so it has the clear topper with sequins and pop beads inside. It’s also very glitzy with sparkly stars and branches and a sweet little candy cane charm. The one on the left is more traditional with holly leaves, wide lace and tinsel trim, enamel number plate and a metal sleigh charm.


It wouldn’t be a kit without a house tag right?  This one has gorgeous pearl and bling trim, rosette ribbon and tinsel trim, large dimensional flowers, buttons and snowflakes. The card is an example of how great this kit works for those who like to make clean and simple projects.  Layering the papers and images and a simple bow makes for a quick project and is easier to mail since it doesn’t have all the dimensional items added.


These cards have all the bells and whistles….okay it has bells lol. The card on the right is accented with handcrafted flowers and altered chippies that look like sweet peppermint candies.  The card on the left has lots of metal embellishments and vintage buttons.


Even for these A2 sized cards I was able to get a lot of detail by layering the papers and tucking in die cuts and lace and bows.  These will also be easier to ship as they fit nicely into a standard sized envelope.


This Jolly St. Nick Creativity Kit has great traditional styled Santa images  that have been meticulously edited to eliminate  imperfections and improve color quality. The double sided cardstock papers have been selected to coordinate perfectly with the images and provide a great amount of flexibility for making projects that are one of a kind creations your friends and family will be thrilled to receive.  I was able to complete 8 full sized projects using the kit , cardstock and bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box. I did have quite a bit of paper leftover so I can easy punch tags to add labels to the baked goods I’m making for the holiday.

Additional supplies used…….

Gypsy Soul Laser cut Chipboard~ Ornament Double Sided, Winter Shape Set, Christmas Shape Set, Snowflake Shape Set.

Petaloo Flowers~ Textured Blossoms Gray, Darjeeling Mini Mix Tea Stained Cream.

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies~ Holly Leaf 4 Piece Set, French Pastry Tiny Doily, English Tea Party Doily.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Trims~ Red Plaid, Gray Plaid, Houndstooth Black and White, Ivory Burlap String, Red Burlap String.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

Silver Reindeer Blue Christmas Greeting Card


Happy Sunday, Paper Peeps! Hope you are having a fabulous week. I’m just dropping in to share a traditionally styled Christmas card with a non-traditional color scheme.  I’m using my Gypsy Soul laser Cut chippies as the frame and focal image for this lovely wintery card and I’m just thrilled with how it turned out.

Mixed Media Collage Layout


Hey there Peeps and Happy Friday!  I’m excited to share with you my first Fine Art Project created for BoBunny.   I was so inspired by all the lovely mixed media supplies and patterned papers from Farmers Market.  I begged to use a picture my Son and his fiancé  took last week while picking apples and it just seemed like a match made in heaven.

To create the background I added a light wash of watered down Gesso to the Farm Fresh patterned paper. Once it dried I cut it into strips and then into smaller squares. Using gel medium I adhered all the pieces down being careful to arrange them in a random pattern. After I had all the background attached I gave it a coat of Brilliant Blue Pearlescents with the ol finger brush smooshing it around and getting it into all the uneven surfaces.  After allowing it to dry I gave it a spray with Frost and Bronze Glimmer spray.  Additional detail comes from some texture paste and the Brocade Stickable Stencil and the feather created with the Whimsy Stickable Stencil and Frost Glitter Paste.

Inking the edges helps give a defined border and stamping some images from the Rough-It-Up stamp and permanent ink anchors the die cuts and image. These flowers were created with the Farm Fresh paper and treated with the same mixed media supplies, layered with alternate sizes and topped off with blingy accents.

I cut some sweet doilies with the Ornate Doilies Die and added patterned paper and the picture of the kiddos.  A little lace softens the arrangement as does the cheesecloth and loopy twine bow.  I used the same mixed media supplies to alter the Family chippie and secured it to the arrangement.  Last but not least a few sprinkles of Glimmer Spray watered down and flicked on with a paintbrush.

Blog Hopping with Really Reasonable Ribbon


Happy October Blog Hopping Paper Peeps!

10308279_717292838322738_8108547784177054821_nThis month the designers are sharing the projects created with the October Ribbon Club Traditional Christmas Mix.

900fc-trad2bchristmas2bmix2bribbon2bclubYou should be coming to me from my dear friend Gloria. If you’re just joining in…’ll want to go to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

I’ve created a sweet little altered berry basket full of tags that have oodles of Christmas charm…the ribbon club trims and  Christmas Tickets Digital Collage Sheet from Polly’s very own shop.


I’ve got layers of die cut doilies, sugared berries, festive holiday flowers, felt stars, twine, and itty bitty clothes pin for the front of the basket. It’s also painted and wrapped with ribbon.


The tickets from the collage sheet were printed and layered over patterned papers, silvery snowflakes, handmade poinsettias, washi tape, lace, clips, and netting.


More yummy Christmas layers for these tags.


The backs of the tags are finished with coordinating patterned paper with photo or journaling mats with spacers between the layers.  Last but not least some sweet little holiday sentiments to finish off the festive fronts.

What a fun way to display pictures and Christmas memories in your seasonal décor.

The Christmas Tickets Collage sheet is available for  instant download so you can print them right away and get your holiday craft on!

Okay the next stop in the hop is Judy! Don’t forget to leave her a little love for sharing her fabby project!
