Hocus Pocus Mini Album for Authentique Papers

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’m back again to share another project with the amazing new collection Nightfall.  I’m seriously swooning over this collection. It’s all  the things I love….vintage and retro and Halloween!

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

Oh how I love a big chunky mini album! This one is a beast at 6 x 6 x 2 inches and it’s super heavy : )

I’ve added a garden of coordinating flowers layered over leaves and stars die cut from glitter paper and loopy twine bows.

Spiderwebs with a corner orientation create a nice frame for the focal images . That glitter spider is a spooktacular holiday embellishment.

Metal charms in Halloween themes hang from twine under a loopy bow of houndstooth ribbon.

I had such a good time layering the patterned papers with fun embellishments like the die cut banner and handmade flowers.

Pockets in minis are a must to utilize all the real estate. You can also add additional mementos like tickets or other flat keepsakes.

Inside the pocket is a sweet little folded insert that adds loads of room for pictures and journaling.

This set of pages has a tip in to take advantage of the gorgeous vintage image. I clipped on a smaller image from the 6 x 6 paper pad to fill in the corner. Also it says witches better have my candy. When I ready that I about fell outta my chair laughing!

Here’s another pocket page. I added another of the smaller images and tucked in a glittey die cut star.

Waste not want not is my motto so I used up a bit of the scrap from cutting the patterned paper into the larger pages and tucked it into this insert.

Here’s another tip in image for this set of pages. I’ve also got a die cut frame accented with enamel dots and a sentiment from the sticker sheet.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 012

The sentiment from this page is fussy cut from one of the larger vintage images. I’ve layered it over a sheet music topped die cut frame and die cut banner. Glitter stars and enamel dots are perfect embellishments for the inside of a book sine they are relatively flat.

The last set of pages has a large paper doily turned into a frame by topping it with patterned papers, a sweet little bow and another star.

Happy Birthday Greeting Card for GSL

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’m so excited to share this project! I’ve been holding on to this Posey Panel chippie for a long time now waiting for the perfect project to use it on. Today is the day!!!!

Happy Birthday Flower Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

This background pattern is just so perfectly floral! I love the tone on tone textured effect I was able to create by finishing the chippie in the same color as the back ground paper.

Happy Birthday Flower Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I used the corners to lighten up the front of this card as it was looking a bit gloomy.

Happy Birthday Flower Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Since I’ve got flowers in the back ground I thought I’d add a few to the front too. Okay maybe more than a few. lol

Happy Birthday Flower Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

A bit of cheesecloth tucked into the flowers softens and fills in the arrangement.

Happy Birthday Flower Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

I’ve added a perfectly coordinated bow of wrinkle ribbon topped off with a second smaller bow of loopy twine then finished it off with a vintage button and metal charms.

Happy Birthday Flower Card Polly's Paper Studio 06

A sentiment can be sweet and simple when stamped,  clipped out and added to cards.

All the chipboard was finished in a flat white acrylic paint.

I used a double sided adhesive tape to support the edges of the paper since the middle has the bulk of the chippie holding it up.

Halloween Pocket with Tags with Nightfall for Authentique Papers

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I hope you are all well.  I’m just so excited to be sharing the project I created wit the new Nightfall collection from Authentique Papers. How much do I love Nightfall? I can not even begin to describe how fabby the patterns are and how much fun the vintagy images are to work with!

Halloween Pocket With Tags Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

I could not possibly decide what images I wanted to use first so I had to go with a pocket with tags plan. This makes a great non-traditional scrapbook when  filled with pictures and journaling. Fill this up with your families favorite memories and display with your seasonal decor.

Halloween Pocket With Tags Polly's Paper Studio 02

I do think that pockets should look as good when the tags are removed so I added details like stickers from the Cardstock Sticker Sheet and die cut spiderwebs. There’s also tinsel topped crepe fringe and coordinating flowers.

Halloween Pocket With Tags Polly's Paper Studio 03

The 6 x 6 paper pads have patterns that are just the perfect scale for tags. Nightfall also has the images in the smaller size so I just had to layer them up with some die cut doilies, holiday charms, and ribbon trim to to the tags.

Halloween Pocket With Tags Polly's Paper Studio 04

Sequins and clips in matching colors are fun details to add that don’t create to much bulk for the tags to fit in the pocket.

The backs of the tags are covered with the patterned paper for a nice finished look.

Please enjoy this tutorial on how I created the pocket….

You should be coming to me from my friend Gloria. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to head on over to the RRR blog to start at the beginning.

I created a card inspired by this amazing assortment and the cute fox image from BoBonny.

Autumn Fox Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The fox image turns this card from traditional Fall to more of a woodland Fall.

Autumn Fox Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02 I think the colors from the paper coordinate with the ribbon club assortment perfectly!

I’ve got a gorgeous selection of flowers here as well . I’ve tucked in little loopy bows of natural colored burlap string to fill in the arrangement.

A ticket from the foiled velum sheet is added for a bit of a subtle sentiment.

Autumn Fox Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05 No card of mine is complete without a few vintage buttons and a die cut doily.

That gorgeous taffeta creates the most perfectly shaped bow and the lace from the assortment is a lovely textural border for this card.

Back to School Teacher Appreciation Gift Card Holder Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Well it’s almost back to school time.  One thing I thought would change when my kids grew up was how quickly summer seems to fly by . But sadly it still is over way too fast. I have a project to share for peeps with kiddos going back to class. Why not start the school year out on the right foot by  letting their teachers know how much you appreciate them.

Back to School Gift Card Holder Polly's Paper Studio 01

Isn’t this step card so charming and vintagy?

Back to School Gift Card Holder Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve got a Graphic 45 collection mash up here. I’ve used the cut apart sheet from the September page of Children’s Hour, and plaid and dots from Raining Cats and Dogs.

Back to School Gift Card Holder Polly's Paper Studio 03

Gorgeous flowers from Little Birdie Crafts coordinate perfectly! I’ve got them layered on some die cut leaves and tiny loopy bows of bakers twine.

Back to School Gift Card Holder Polly's Paper Studio 04

Of course the bow has to have polka dots too!!! That tiny TH clip is just the best accent for the little calendar page.

Back to School Gift Card Holder Polly's Paper Studio 05

Inside has a pocket to tuck in a sentiment tag and a gift card. Why not treat them to a restaurant or coffee shop card, or even a gift card to an office supply store in case they need something throughout the school year.

Please enjoy this video tutorial of how I created this fun step card….

Walk on the Wild Side Greeting Card and Tag for BoBunny

Standard

Hello there friends and BoBunny Fans!

I’m takin a walk on the wild side today with these projects created with the Jungle Life Collection.

Jungle Life_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_August6_01

I mean who can resist the king of the jungle on a greeting card??? Not me that’s for sure.

Jungle Life_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_August6_02

This collection has so many great patterns to layer. For this card I chose prints with different scales and different colors using black cardstock to keep it from looking busy. Adding  spacers between the layers builds depth.

Jungle Life_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_August6_03

These flowers are created with the patterned papers and simple flowers dies and topped with metallic spiral stamens. Laser cut chipboard finished in a mossy green are tucked in and last but not least a small loopy bow for this arrangement.

Jungle Life_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_August6_04

The lion image is clipped from one of the cut apart postcards then snipped into a tag shape. There’s a metal eyelet and twine looped through and sequins to add a bit of sparkly detail. An additional chippie is tucked between the paper layers and a die cut doily is the perfect finishing touch!

Jungle Life_Insert_Ginny Nemchak_August6_01

To add detail to the inside of the card I created an insert with some stamps and the Vicki Boutin Color Wheel ink.

Jungle Life_Projects_Ginny Nemchak_August6_01

Of course while I had the supplies out I decided to create a second project.

Jungle Life_Adventure Tag_Ginny Nemchak_August6_01

Oh yeah I did make a zebra tag!!!!

Jungle Life_Adventure Tag_Ginny Nemchak_August6_02

I used the same black cardstock to create borders and a doily to layer in. That arrow signage is from the Layered Chipboard Stickers. Just a bit of glitter really glams it up.

Jungle Life_Adventure Tag_Ginny Nemchak_August6_03

More handmade flowers here from the patterned papers, a tag with eyelet and twine, a few sequins, and clip are the perfect embellies to finish this tag!
