I’m pretty excited this morning because this is the day our Tuesday Night Peeps are having our Christmas get together : ) I should probably be curling my hair and putting on my eyeliner right about now….so I’m just popping in to share a sweet new collage I created just in time for New Years : ) I think I will print out a set of these great Bingo images and make up a quick banner. All I have to do is trim them out…add tons of Stickles and some pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course! But not until after the party lol.
If you’d like a set of these for yourself….just follow the link over…it’s available for instant download so you can get your craft on with it right away! Vintage Bingo New Years Eve Cards.
Okay…I’m off now to get my party on! I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
I hope you all are enjoying all the fun and festivities of this time of year. We had a nice quiet Christmas….if you consider video games going in the background to be quiet lol. I’ve taken the opportunity to work while the peeps have been sleeping in. I’ve got several new collage sheets to share. Even though I have enjoyed the Christmas holiday projects…I can say for sure I am ready to move on to other creative avenues : )
I’m calling this one Vintage Book Cover Cards. There’s 4 nice large images….so you can make quick cards or add them to your scrapbooking and paper crafting.
Of course I’m calling this one Birds of a Feather. This sheet is perfect for all types of cards…or maybe even strung together to make a banner?
I can not wait to get to the shop and create some sweet Valentines with this Heart Collage.
This printable Baby Banner Collage has an extra sheet of banner shapes so you can string as many together as you need to fit your space perfectly!

Well it’s Christmas time again and I hope this post finds you happy healthy and surrounded by the ones you love the most. Even if your family is far away…keep them close in your heart….and they’ll be “home” for Christmas. I won’t take up too much of your time this morning as I know you’re like me…..knee deep in wrapping papers…trying to get the best family pictures to add to your scrapbook…and getting ready to prepare your holiday feast. So I’ll just share the pics of my fun and festive Christmas Mini Album.
I used the Glitz Ribbon in Red and Green, and Gingham in Green and Red. All from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Okay..that’s all for me….I’m off to sneak a few sprinkle cookies for breakfast before everyone gets up. I don’t think Santa will mind do you? I hope the holiday is everything that you hope for….a lot of family, a lot of faith, a lot of festivities and maybe even a little magic…after all it is Christmas : )
Have a happy and productive day and find some time to be merry! Hugs and love from Ginny at Polly’s Paper
A special friend gave me a very unexpected and generous gift last week. I was so moved by the surprise. I created this card for her to thank her for her kindness…I just love her so much!!!!!
I gathered lot’s of shabby inspired papers and stitched them up to create a base for some festive Christmas trimmings.
I layered on a pretty poofy bow made from Chevron Striped Pink Twill from Really Reasonable Ribbon, topped off with a sparkly jingle bell, a chipboard tag, and a thank you tag with a vintage button. Isn’t that snowman charming????
Fun snowflake trim stitched over Amelia White Crocheted Lace across the bottom of the card is a nice girly accent. Last but not least there’s a painted, and inked and glittered paper rosette topped off a chipboard star and another vintage button.
I cannot thank her enough for thinking of me this time of year : ) Such a blessing to have such wonderful friends : )
I hope you all are enjoying your holidays so far and spending time with your loved ones : )
So it’s the first day of my Christmas vacation and what am I doing? Designing digital collage sheets. Any normal person would have slept in…had a leisurely coffee…..start making last minute gift lists. However I live in a house with Scooter. And there is no better alarm clock than a hungry cat…so hello to 5 am. While the rest of the home Peeps were snuggled in their beds…I’m cropping and snipping and layering away.
My first collage Vintage Valentine’s Cards.
The second collage Vintage Easter Tags.
Be on the lookout for some fun projects from the shop with these images. If you’d like a set of your own to create some fabulous projects simply click on the links : )
Okay….I’m off now to bake up some cookies…I just found a great recipe for gingerbread that doesn’t have to be rolled and cut…that’s perfect for an impatient baker like me. I hear there’s a a big ice storm coming to mid Michigan so I could say I’m preparing for a power outage…no one will go hungry if we have cookies right?
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
Here’s 2 more ornaments we created in class last week….as promised. We had so much fun working with all the trimy bits and pieces. I will say though that it is no time soon that I will be rid of the glitter on the tables and floor and tools and chairs and displays….well….pretty much everywhere. It’s all good though!
This one has a bingo card cut into a banner shape. We did add a layer of book board behind to make it sturdy enough to hang a festive ball ornament…on an eyelet of course so it wont pull out. The Santa image is one of my favorites from Graphic’s Fairy. There’s also fun tinsel trim, glittery leaves and a handy dandy hanging loop made of Snowflakes on Red Satin. Last but not least a sweet little bow of Baker’s Twine in Cherry. From Really Reasonable Ribbon! This is one of my favorites of the season….as I have really embraced my retro mojo this year.
This ornament is very traditional. We layered a lovely vintage image onto sheet music on pop dots for extra dimension. Then we added it to a sparkly snowflake ornament. The Moss Gingham bow matches perfectly and is topped off with a large jingle bell : ) I added a bit of the trim to create a hanger.
Okay…I’m off now to fight my way through the Michigan blizzard to get to the post office then to the shop. I’m working on our class project for next week…I’ll give ya a hint….it’s a Winter Woodland mini album….I have to say…it’s in the running for top 5 fave seasonal projects. Notice I didn’t say holiday????? Are you intrigued now lol???? Okay wish me luck….not that I need it too much since I’m a little ol country girl driving a big ol truck! I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative! : ) G
It’s time again for another super fun Blog Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon. This month the design team are sharing the projects we created with the December Ribbon Club Assortment.
Isn’t this a great selection? I just love that it works not only for Christmas projects…but right on into winter creations too!
Okay…you all know how this works…you should be finding your way here Kathy. If not….better start at the beginning so you don’t miss out on any of the creativity…..Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings.
We had fun with this ribbon assortment in class this week….we created several Christmas ornaments….with lot’s of festive details.
This ornament is a pocket made with vintage sheet music. I embellished it with a pretty snowflake, printed images. Double layer of bows, tinsel trim and a sweet tiny bottle brush tree. I Stickled it up to show of the details. Not sure how long that candy cane is gonna last is a house full of boy’s but for now it looks nice.
This ornament started with a purchased ornament in the shape of a gift…it’s very glittery…maybe that’s why it caught me eye. lol. We added a beautiful vintage image cropped into a circle then layered over a coordinating scallop, paper rosette and small banner shape. I topped off the ornament with a bow of silver ribbon and twine in oyster and a jingle bell. The ribbons I used for these projects:Silver Satin with metallic edge, White Sheer with stitched center, Blue Sheer with stitched center.
These are the two projects we added the ribbon club ribbon to. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing the other two ornaments we created using other great Really Reasonable Ribbons.
