I had myself a lovely day selecting a ton of Valentiny goodies for some awesome Creativity Kits. I do tend to go a bit overboard : ) When I had all the supplies worked out…I wrapped them up in a super sweet pink striped Middi Bag and tied them up with yummy pink string and a heart punched tag!
You know I had to work in some awesome trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
These have to be the cutest wrapped kits I have ever made : ) I even punched a heart in the tag and tied it up with pretty pink string.

Well today is my day over at Really Reasonable Ribbon to share a tutorial : ) I just love creating fun embellishments with those trims!
I’ve used this beautiful image from Graphic’s Fairy before…but I’ve never paired her with pink. I kinda love it!
I layered Pink Wrinkle Ribbon over Pink Gingham and Bakers Twine in
Cotton Candy. As you can see…I’ve inked the ribbons to make them extra shabby.
All the little pieces of this banner were easy to slide right into place to get the perfect spacing. I topped it off with some vintagy butons.
See I told ya it was easy. And man do they go together in a snap. Next time I’m going to try layering the ribbon banner over a paper banner.
Okay that’s it for me…gotta get ready to take the kiddo to the frigid freezing bus stop : /
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
I’m sharing this project at Le Chatuau des Fleurs
By the way….there are lot’s of great ribbon tutorials posted from the talented designers at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings…..why not hop over and check em out?
Not too much time for a post today…but I wanted to share with you a sweet little New House Mini that I created last week.
See I told ya it would be a quick post : ) I should mention that most of this awesome paper is from on of my favorite brands…Lily Bee. Very retro and chipper and cheerful.
I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
Had lot’s of fun with my girls at movie night at the shop. We have our snacks, and our shows, and we get our craft on : ) This time I actually got a project completed!!! Theme for the night??? Vintage Valentine of course : )
You know I love me some layers. Chipboard and crepe and pearls and buttons and glitter oh my : )
This ruffly accent was easy to make ( now that I figured out how to refill the bobbin on my really old machine the right way! ) I’m pretty sure we got some pizza sauce on the machine last night while we were up to our usual shenanigans. But it’s all good : )
To hide the clips holding my Valentine heart to the little hanger I added some poofy bows with my Really Reasonable Ribbon Pink Wrinkle Ribbon and Cotton Candy Bakers Twine.
Well that’s it for me today…gotta get ready to head to the shop. It’s still bitterly cold here so I’ll be enjoying shutting myself in to create more projects and dreaming of Summer.
Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
One of the biggest challenge of owning a scrapbook store is the need to have one of every different item I order. Like a kid in my own candy store lol. I’ve even been know to create a project to justify to myself the need to open yet another package. Take for instance this beach inspired mini album….. I really wanted to try out the Gathered Twig Distress Ink Pad from my recent order of Ranger Inks. Decided to try it out on some chipboard to see if I could get a weathered painted wood look. I kinda love it : ) I used the chipboard pieces throughout the pages for a consistent look…and I was having too much fun playing with the ink pad to stop at one piece : )
The chipboard frame looks a lot like an old painted dock or pier. Especially with the shabby look of all the other layers. I worked in a generous strip of Ivory Jute Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon…..the Chocolate Brown Seam Binding and Jute Natural Ribbon on the rings is too. I love the textural and natural look it adds.
I even added a bit of the Jute Ribbon to fluff up the flower arrangement. Flowers on masculine projects can be such a challenge. Oh and I also talked myself into opening a package of Ideology pins to give the arrangement a little height with the tiny blue star.
Each set of pages has more of the netting, and inked chipboard and a beach themed sticker. The page on the right has room for nice large pictures and a vintage inspired tab. The left page has 2 large pockets for pics and mementos and 1 large journaling tag.
This set of pages shows the journal tag in the back pocket. You can really add ton’s of goodies to this type of mini. I made the pages super sturdy and thick so it will hold up to lot’s of showing off.
So maybe this will keep me out of the new stock for a little while. Nah. Nearing a blog milestone here at Polly’s Paper. We will very soon be at our 600th subscriber. Yayyyy!!! Trying to think of what would make a nice giveaway gift for a contest when we get there. Anybody have any good ideas?
Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. G
Here’s another sweet little Valentiny greeting card I created using items from my scrap and salvage box and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
The red paper rose was painted to lighten the color and an unexpected surprise was this awesome texture. I used Red Wrinkle Ribbon and berries and a generous length of Cherry Bakers Twine.
I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. G
I just wanted to take this opportunity to show how much I appreciate my Etsy supporters by offering them a little giveaway now until Valentine’s Day I’ll be sending a free little goody bag filled with 6 extra sweet Valentine tags for every purchase of $5.00 or more. The tags are 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches and can be opened like a tiny card. I’ve got lot’s of fun prints, some are shown here and I’ll select a nice variety for each goody bag. Just my way of saying “I Love You Guy’s” Use these tags for little love notes, labels for baked treats, tags for gifts, or add them to your kiddo’s sacked lunches to show them you care : )
They’re having a super fun challenge going on now at RRR. This time it’s Valentine’s Day/ Love & Ribbon theme. So you know that had my name all over it. I’ve been inspired by fellow DT member Misty to do a little destashing. So the paper I used here from My Mind’s Eye is from the scrap and salvage box. The blingy hearts I bought at Target ages ago and recently rediscovered. The chipboard key and lock is from Maya Road….had them forever….but forget about them in the drawer. The pink string in the buttons is from my long abandoned cross stitch bag.
It was 7 degree’s this morning….so I’m thinking longingly of Spring. Maybe that’s why I’ve been using so many of these sweet paper roses and other dimensional flowers lately. They match the pink Gingham ribbon perfectly! Of course it’s from Really Reasonable Ribbon. So is the pink bakers twine SWOON!
Here’s the close up of that little lock and key. I tied it onto the bow with more of the twine. Someday I will have some of every color twine Bonnie has at RRR.
Are you asking yourself ” But I thought Ginny said it was a challenge????” Well here’s the best part….you can create your own awesome Valentiny project and enter the challenge at RRR. Simply click on this link and follow the easy peasy instructions. I can’t wait to see the awesome projects you create: )
Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative! G
