Botanicabella Journal with Graphic 45

Standard

Hey there Peeps. Sorry for 2 posts in one day…but we have loads of creativity to share and sometimes it happens.  My next project is for Graphic 45 .  Botanicabella Journal.  This time of year it’s always nice to have  personal handmade items you can present as hostess gifts. A journal or notebook is a pretty and practical gift that can be used by just about everyone. They are sure to remember the special holiday they shared with you when they use it. This journal is created with one of my favorite lines Botanicabella. I added lots of layers and textures as well as tabbed dividers to keep notes organized. A little spritz of copper colored spray to bring it all together and give it an antique appearance.

Men’s Den Nautical Map Home Decor with Crafter’s Companion

Standard

Hello my name is Ginny and I hoard frames. It has been 0 days since I hoarded a frame with the intention of rehabbing it. There are currently no 12 step programs to help me. Hahah…okay all kidding aside.  I do tend to pick up frames (and everything else) if I find a good deal on it with the intention of using it later. Sadly this has resulted in a fairly embarrassing large stash so I’m making a goal   to remake them into fabulous finished projects.  Preferably before they make an episode of The Hoarders out of me and you find me on some TLC documentary series.  This lost little unloved frame is now fabby finished out for masculine home decor item.  I’m calling it Men’s Den Nautical Map Home Decor. I think it would be great in a den….not our den of course because ours is filled with gaming computers and posters of World of Warcraft ( I live in a house of technology geeks)….but other peoples dens lol.

French Birdcage Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I had a blast getting CHA samples prepared and sent out but I’m glad that rush is over and I can start working on some just for fun projects. I created this Paris Birdcage Greeting Card yesterday with pretty digital images and papers from the shop and added loads of flowers and trims and even a sweet little bird charm. It’s very shabby and very feminine.

A Beary Merry Christmas

Standard

Hey there Peeps! You all know I am NOT a celebrity stalker.  You can keep your movie stars and rappers (with the possible exception on Johnny Depp.)  I would much rather celebrate the people I actually know. People that do good work in our own small community. Those who give of themselves and ask for nothing in return. In Pinckney we have an abundance of these amazing people.   I created this card for one of these giving and generous folks. The Scoutmaster of our Boy Scout Troop.   I won’t get all gushy here…but he is a very important person to our family.   I’m sure he would appreciate a card made in the shabby chic Ginny style..because he is a gracious receiver.  But instead I made a card that is all Chuck who is in the Bear Patrol.

Chucks Bear Card1 Chucks Bear Card2 Chucks Bear Card3 Chucks Bear Card4 Chucks Bear Card5 Chucks Bear Card6This pop up card was a lot of fun to make. I did get a bit out of hand with the embossing powder : (  I had to edit a few spray bits out when I processed the pictures. I was laughing to myself as I was working on the edits thinking if anyone called and asked me what I was doing right at that moment I would have to tell them “Oh you know…just retouching embossing powder off a bears bum”  Then I thought to myself….I’ll bet people wouldn’t think that was such an odd thing for ME to be doing lol.

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