Birthday Card for a Special Friend

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  Ginny here to share a very special card I created for my dear friend and crafty conspirator Jennifer.  We go wayyyyyy back to when our kids were little. We actually both have an Alexander (same age now and nearly done with college) and a Jonathan (one year apart and  nearly done with high school.)   So we’ve sat together at  more football practices and band performances and scout meetings than you can count. We even have matching stadium outfits lol. Anyhoo….she’s a very special friend and I’m so glad she had a nice birthday!

Valentine Card with Graphic 45’s Children’s Hour with Snapguide Tutorial

Standard

Oh how I love a card about love!  The fabulous teeny tiny patterns in the Children’s Hour 6×6 Patterns and Solids Pad are just right for layering so I matted them in a dark chocolate brown and topped them with sweet vintage images from the February Collective page then embellished them with pretty fussy cut and dimensional flowers. There’s also ribbon trim and charming love buttons : ) I am swooning over this very Valentiny card.

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I’m back to share some tags I’ve been working on using my new mixed media goodies. Tags are my new love.

Dream Tag GSL 1Dream Tag GSL 2Dream Tag GSL 3Dream Tag GSL 4

This Dreamer Tag has loads of pretty much everything. flowers, paints, stamping, inking, lace, Periwinkle Wrinkle Ribbon, and oh course marvelous chippies which I altered to match. This sweet fairy image is one from Polly’s very own digital collage sheet…Vintage Photos for Mixed Media.  The lovely Gypsy Soul Laser Cut supplies I used for this tag….Art Deco Border & Corners and Words & Phrases 1.

Butterfly Clock Tag 3

This tag has all the yummy layers too. I added some metal gears attached with my handy dandy tiny stapler and some stamped, colored , fussy cut and covered in Glossy Accents. I’m using the chipboard as a frame for this tag and the stark white finish really brightens up what might otherwise be gloomy. Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.Fanciful Elements.

Dressform Tag Shabby Chic 1Dressform Tag Shabby Chic 2

Last but not least is this very shabby and girly tag with a little bit of steampunk with the gears and wings. I am currently slightly obsessed with eyelash yarn because wrapping flowers with them makes them much more muchier.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
