Hey there Paper Peeps! It’s that time of year when the kiddos walk down the aisle to get their diplomas. I don’t have one in my house graduating this year….but we have some very special friends who do and we are so proud of them!!!! One of the blessing of living in a small town is that every kid is your kid….one big happy family. I created a card this year with some great subway styled art and fun pirate images for the Pinckney Fighting Pirates! I created many of the same card that will hopefully become a keepsake of their special day.
We have great school colors to work with….and I added just a nice little bow of Black Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I’m wishing them all a very bright future and I’m wishing you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Well hello there Paper Peeps! Hope you all are enjoying a lovely morning. I’m dropping in to share a fun birthday card I created with Graphic 45 Typography papers and my new Subway Style Card Sentiments Digital Collage Sheet.
Isn’t that a fabulous card sentiment???? I wanted to create a sheet that would have the perfect image for just about any occasion….so all you have to do is print it out…then clip the image you need for the card you want to create : ) It’s subway art styled….which works well with all different styles….I’ve used a vintagy theme here for my Birthday card….but they would look great on Clean and Simple or modern styles too! I think they would also look fabby on tags.

Okay….I admit….I have a super serious ribbon crush on the new Cotton Blend Vintage Pink Floral Ribbon. When I saw that ribbon…I had to have it….stat!!!! It is so gorgeous and shabby. When it came in the mail…I loved it even more. It’s got a beautiful rose pattern and the burlap is sturdy…but soft enough to make a lovely poofy bow. I didn’t add a bow to this project….but I will next time for sure : )
I upcycled a box into pretty and functional storage for my crafty space. It turned out so well….that I’ve been eyeballing things around the house to see what else I can cover….I may be addicted!
The only thing this box had going for it was that it’s a great size for containing pens or scissors but really heavy…so I can store my cropodile without tipping the box over.
Must have Melissa Natural Crocheted Lace on the top.
My other new favorite Ivory Burlap String criss-crossed around. Swooning
Isn’t that a fabulous little shabby chic box???? Thank you Bonnie for getting trim that I absolutely fell in love with!!!! I see a lot of burlap in my future!!!!
Okay……..that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )G

Well hello there Paper Peeps! I’m dropping in to share a really fun mini album that we created in class a few weeks ago. I was trying to save it til closer to the holiday….but I have the patience of a 5 year old child lol!!!! So here is a super fun and festive Vintage Patriotic Staggered Page Mini Album…
I can tell you that we had a blast making this fun album with loads of holiday inspired paper patterns, vintage images, flowers, ribbon, paper rosettes, buttons, and a fun bottle cap embellishment! I just love how the pages stagger to reveal a sneak peek of the whole book at a glance. This is a rare time I will list a patriotic themed project in the Etsy shop…as I usually keep them for our own decor….but we are chock full of patriotic minis so this one is available and ready to ship….in time for the holidays….wouldn’t this be a great gift all filled up with pictures and memories???
I used some of my favoritest trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Red Gingham, Center Stitch Burlap in Navy, Sheer Organza with Navy Center, Patriotic Boats on Navy Grosgrain. I also used quite a few Mulberry Flowers also from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Okay..that’s it for me today….I’m off to the shop to get my craft on! Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
