We had so much fun making some fabulous extra large Vintage inspired Christmas tags in class last night : ) The girlies in my class are just crazy happy fun and I enjoy each and every minute of our class time.
Here’s a sneak peek of one of the tags we made…..it’s pinkalicious : ) and has a super precious little girl, dimensional paper rosette, loads of vintage images, glittery snowflake, buttons and flowers (even a hand crocheted flower) burlap , and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. These tags are quite large 3 1/2 x 5 3/4 inches so they’re perfect to add to your seasonal decor, or your tree, or strung together to create a unique banner.
See…I told you she was precious : ) We’ve got a limited amount of kit’s available in the Etsy shop if you’d like a kit for your own. Click the link to check out the details. I will say this…..there are sooo many pop dots between the layers on these tags that they are super dimensional and that’s before adding on all the embellishments. I’ve done a fair amount of Stickling to them as well….because everything is better with glitter right?
Okay that’s it for me tonight…I’m off to resume my reign as queen of the house….in other words…laundry and dinner lol. A girl can dream can’t she? Maybe if I wear a tiara while I fold the clothes….
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : )G
Hi there all it’s Ginny here to share a great tutorial on how you can transform basic flowers from the craft store ( or your own stash lol I know we all have faux flowers in our supplies.) I needed some flowers to embellish a fall inspired mini album we were creating for our class this week…and try as I might I could not find any that fit the size or style I needed without them looking too “Thanksgivingy” So I transformed these rather plain flowers into a warmer and seasonally fitting embellishment with some ink, Liquid Pearls and trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Ink all the layers. I used my current favorite Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
Cut rough circles from Faux Burlap Antique Gold trim and roll to tatter edge.
Using Bisque Liquid Pearls smash and spread it into the center to lighten it up and along the petals to add a shimmery accent. I think you could have fun experimenting with different colored flowers and inks and pearls. Maybe a Christmasy poinsettia?
I trimmed these leaf shapes from another stem…the leaves were actually too big to use in their original state….so I just nipped them in a bit. To the edges I added a nice line of Cinnamon Stickles for detail.
Once I had two of the flowers transformed…I got out the glue gun again and attached them close to the base.. then layered them over the jazzed up leaves.
Good morning all! I here to share a card I created with loads of Christmasy details vintage image and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I’ve gone a little bow crazy lately….adding all the fun bits. This time I layered a die cut star with 2 faux poinsettia flowers without the stem…and topped it off with an extra poofy Red Gingham Bow and Sweetheart Blossoms.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. : ) G
Well hello there!!!!! I hope you all have enjoyed yourself a happy weekend. I say weekend because my days off are Sunday Monday lol…. I’m just popping in to share a lovely Count your Blessings book we are creating in class tonight. It’s full of warm rich colors and tons of details. I’ve picked kinda Fall papers…but not Thanksgivingy. The inside pages are sewn vintage law book pages…..so they have a fabulous tattered edge.
Lot’s of pages and pockets and tags inside. As well as embellished floral accents and ribbon trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon and vintage images from The Graphic’s Fairy. We’ve got a full class tonight…so I can’t take any reservations….but I am making the kit available in Etsy Shop in the next few days. If you’d like to reserve a listing specially for you…just drop me a comment on this post and I’ll get you all set up : )

I spent some time this afternoon working on some sweet little tags I created with my new collage sheet….loads of Stickles, Inks and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
After printing the images…I added lot’s of Stickles and inks then layered them on some larger tags I had in the stash. These bows are sa-weet. I also added some little goodies to embellish them like flowers, buttons, and snowflake pins.
I’ve got a nice big pile left to embellish. I think these will make fabulous tags that can be on a gift…then taken off to hang on the tree to make a keepsake ornament. Or maybe to label a homemade treat? Or a banner????
Here is the sheet of images:
