Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a project I created inspired by the lovely Fall colors and patterns of the Autumn Ribbon Club Assortment.
This collection is super perfect for Fall and Thanksgiving. Warm rich colors and Autumn patterns.
I created a Thanksgiving card with layers of patterned papers , vintage image from my Thanksgiving Large Cards Digital Collage Sheet, and loads of flowers and embellishments.
I chose to print the image a bit smaller so I could add lots of layers.
This bow is topped off with gorgeous little Orange Open Roses. There is also Antique Gold Burlap String, and a bloom from Petaloo.
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Hey there Paper Peeps! I’m so very excited to share that we are on day 4 of the Graphic 45 ~ Faber Castell Blog Hop!
This was such a fun challenge for me. I’ve never used Gelatos before. It took a little getting used to…but once I did I used it on everything even the flowers and metal embellishments. The whipped Spackle was my favorite part..thankfully I had some stencils in my stash so I was able to add loads of background texture and interest as a base for the fussy cut paper images. I think this little plaque is just dreamy with it’s soft muted colors and sweet children images. I’ll be using Gelatos on everything now..thanks for the inspiration to try something new!

Okay that’s all for me….treating myself to a trip to the craft store this morning..better start my list lol. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Hey there Paper Peeps! Are you asking yourself “Why is Ginny posting so late?” Wellllll I’ve been working on a new kit…and I really didn’t want to give up on the projects until I had used all the pieces. But it has too many pieces and I worked so late last night but did not use it all up. I treated myself to a little sleepin in this morning but I’m back to work now so I can share the projects I created with the Traditional Santa 2015 Creativity Kit. You may notice some fun glittery pieces I added…yes I did use the Cricut……yes I did glue my arm to the Cricut mat…..yes more than once lol. Here is the breakdown of projects….1 large wooden sleigh, 2 wall hangings, 1 extra large tag, 4 full sized cards (5 x 6 1/2) inches. 4 small gift tags. At that point I just said “oh my stars it’s never gonna end” and went to bed…so there’s more pieces to use today (after my nap.)
And here is the Traditional Santa 2015 Creativity Kit…
66 pieces of paper goodness to get your craft on. Make cards, mini albums, banners, tags, label a tasty homemade treat…..and you can see that you will get a lot of mileage out of this kit. I’ve had so much fun adding richly patterned papers in warm colors and vintagy holiday images. For the projects I have shown I used additional trims and embellishments from my scrap and salvage box . This is a great time to get a head start on your holiday crafting…why not sing Christmas carols in your tank tops and flip flops?
Hey there Paper Peeps! I’m pretty excited to share my project today. We’ve been rehabbing a 1966 Vintage Banner camper for our family adventures and it’s been so much fun decorating and making up special items for it. I created a little wall hanging to go with our retro 50’s theme of white and teal like a great old fashioned diner.
Isn’t this retrolicious???? I’m using Sheer Cherry in Red and Burlap Center Stitch in Turquoise from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I added Red Sweetheart Blossoms and Teal Cosmos together with a funky red clothes pin and a label created with my old school label maker.
The base is super sturdy chipboard covered in canvas and it’s got a generous length of ribbon to display in our lil camper.
I can’t wait to hang this up and enjoy it while we are “roughing it” Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative. : ) G
Well hello there Peeps! I’ve lost tack of what day it is as my boys are still away at Philmont Boyscout Camp. Seems like they’ve been gone forever : ( I’m pretty sure it’s a weekend day though because Scooter the cat woke me up at 5 am for no reason and he never does that during the week lol. I’m dropping in with my mug of Traverse City cherry coffee to share a card I created for Crafty Secrets. Vintage Children in Window Card.
This is the shabby chicest card I’ve made in quite a while.
Maybe I did…maybe I didn’t go overboard with the flowers and ribbon….but I think it’s pretty dreamy.
This is a combination of Petaloo and Mulberry flowers. The leaves were cut with a Sizzix die. I’ll admit it took awhile to become friends with this particular die. I wish I could say I pick up every craft tool and am instantly an expert at it. I’ve given up on this die a few times and threw it back in the bin…but perseverance paid off and now I think I can work it successfully. I used white paper and inked it with Tim Holltz Crushed Olive Distress Ink. I added a few loopy bows of Ivory Burlap String to fill in the arrangement.
This bow is created with Pink Chevron Stripe on Twill ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Another Mulberry rose and a few tiny buds tucked in.
Loving the dimensional effect from all the layered flowers and trim : ) Printed papers and image are from Crafty Secrets…Wild Roses Paper, Birds and Bloom Digital Paper Kit, CD2 Creating with Vintage Illustrations.
Okay that’s all for me…whatever day it is..I’ll be back in the shop playing paper to escape the heat. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Hey Peeps! Who loves a challenge? This girl!!!! The theme for this challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon is Black and White with 1 Additional Color. I created this fun Bazaar and Fair Card. It’s a perfect all occasion card for a Birthday, Get Well, Thinking of you….pretty much everything!
I’m using Black Checkerboard Satin and Satin Swiss Dots to make a yummy bow. There’s also Black Mulberry Open Roses on the the filmstrip with White Sheer with 4 Thin Stripes. The patterned papers and vintage images are from Crafty Secrets….Digital Halloween Papers, Creating with Vintage Typography CD, Retro Kitchen Kit.
Okay now it’s your turn to create a Black and White with 1 additional color project and link up with us to play along. Wishing you all have a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
