This Great Adventure Misc Me Layout for BoBunny

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  What a fun day for me to be sharing my first project with the fabulous new Life In Color Collection from BoBunny which is just so amazing. I had a blast mixing and matching the patterns with the embellies and some of my favorite pictures.

I used a combination of the 12 x 12 papers and the Misc Me Pocket Squares to create an arrangement that  is similar but different for each of the pages for this 2 page layout.

 Once I had the placement of the papers and squares I added pictures and some fussy cut images from the 12 x 12 paper like the balloon and ampersand.  I’ve also incorporated quite a bit of Foil Transfers for extra detail and a pop of shine.

I created die cut embellishments that match perfectly by adding clear embossing powder to the die cut then heat setting it then adding a layer of Orange Pentart Glass Paint.  Now it’s sooo shiny. Last but not least some Chipboard and Layered Stickers and Double Dot Aqua Jewels.

Adding the Foil Transfer to the picture as well as the paper brings the detail to the center of the layout. This poor little tree from our front yard was frozen and sparkly and looked like it was coated in diamonds.

To balance the rich color from the die cuts I added a bit of a border here and there and even punched the polka dot paper and backed it with the orange for a faux stitched effect.

More of the polka dot paper for this set of pages but this time paired with the brick wall pattern.

I’m also using the same package of Foil Transfers but this time choosing flourish shapes and a large sentiment to layer over the picture.  An orange doily die cut and some fussy cut images from the 12 x 12 paper and this layout is complete.

One more picture…this time from our local hiking trail brings the greens to the right side of this layout set. I’ve balanced it with additional doilies, a fussy cut lock and a couple of elements from the Noteworthy pack.  The Foil Transfer on the polka dot pattern is a subtle but beautiful detail.

Okay things I love about this project….first the paper is so awesome…second Foil Transfers are my new best crafty friend……third Glass Paint sticks to embossing so I’m adding it to everything from now on.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Vintage Love Valentine Tag

Standard

Happy Wednesday Paper Peeps!  It’s just been terrible cold here in Michigan so I’ve hunkered down in the shop to keep warm and to create loads of Valentiny projects.

 

I’m totally into the black and pink color combination this year along with vintage images and trims from my favorite Ribbon place : )

Pretty flowers and pearly accents just feel so right on vintage projects….and Valentine ones too!

This Rose Petal Seam Binding is so lovely and makes the perfect bow along with some Natural Burlap String.

I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how happy this combination of stripes and polka dots makes me. It super girly combined with the florals and having spacers between the layers keeps the patterns from being too busy.

Life is Beautiful All Occasion GReeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a lovely and romantic styled greeting card I created with some sweet chippies and pretty patterned papers and flowers.

Life Is Beautiful All Occasion Greeting Card

 

Here’s how I created the card….

I selected these chippies because the window opening was just the perfect size to frame the image I chose from the patterned paper. Additional flourish pieces will be layered on top.

I gave a base coat of flat white to all the pieces….even the ones I planned to finish with embossing.

Once the flourishes were dry I added white embossing powder with flecks of pink and gold. After heat setting it’s a lovely shabby finish.

A layer of velum behind the window panes gives a sheer look and a base to add pink confetti for a faux shaker card look.

Oodles of pretty coordinating flowers and ribbon trim.

Sentiment banner layered over the larger flourish.

You can never have too many flowers so I added a few here to balance the arrangement on the bottom.  Small loopy twine bow to soften the corner.

This card is available in the Etsy Shop…..Life Is Beautiful All Occasion Greeting Card.

Nature’s Sketchbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display

Standard

Well hello there Paper Peeps. So very thrilled to be sharing my first Petaloo project for 2017.  I’m combining The gorgeous Petaloo blooms with Nature Sketchbook from Graphic 45 and I must say it’s a match made in heaven : )

Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 01

This spinning shadow box display has four separate compartments to fill with lovely nature scenes. The base has a mechanism to allow it to be spun using the crystal knob on top so the 4 sides can be viewed easily.

Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 02

The top is finished with coordinating papers patterns, a raised center section embellished with altered chipboard, roping and the crystal knob.  I’ve also topped off the shadowbox sections with the Graphic 45 Staples Door Pulls.  You can see I’ve  tucked in a bit of moss to line the bottom of the box to add further nature inspired accent.

Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 03

Each side has a different but coordinating look loaded with cut aparts from the papers and a veritable garden of flowers.

Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 04

Taking advantage of the depth of the box I incorporated  many of the paper pieces with spacers and curves to create a fully dimensional display and to allow room for flowers to be tucked behind the papers.

The altered chipboard elements are added to the shadowbox  frame and provide additional places to embellish with the flowers to bring the display out of the box. Natures Skethcbook Florals Spinning Shadow Box Display Polly's Paper Studio 06
Last but not least a bit of seam binding in coordinating colors to soften the edges of the cards.

I’m so excited for this project to be displayed at the Petaloo booth at Creativiation ( formerly CHA)  I hope the attendees enjoy seeing it there and maybe even give it

a spin. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

1 Layout 3 Ways For BoBunny

Standard

Hey there BoBunny Peeps! So much fun to be posting my first project here for 2017.  I created my “1 Layout 3 Ways” with a generously donated picture of this sweetest little girl Liddy. She’s my BFF Kathy’s Granddaughter and she is just soooo adorable.

Sweet Liddy Scrapbook Layout by Ginny Nemchak using BoBunny Felicity Collection

For layout (1) I’m using paper patterns from the Felicity Collection. I’ve added a light rubbing of Pentart Creamy Acrylic Metallic Paint in Rose then used the Brocade Stickable Stencil and Silver Contour Liner to add a subtle script pattern. Die cuts from the patterned paper, fussy cut clocks and elements from the Felicity Noteworthy set all layered to accent the picture.

Adding a border to the top and bottom for layout (2) and topping it off with a large section of fussy cut flowers.
