Upcycled Mini Wallet Fold Tag Album featuring Charmed from BoBunny

Standard

Hello there friends!  I’ve got a bit of a recycling project for you today. I have created a wallet fold mini album with the packaging from an online order and the gorgeous Charmed collection from BoBunny.  I’ve made this style of mini in the past and been frustrated at the bulkiness of  cardstock I used for the base.  But I found a great solution to this when I unboxed a package and the “filler” paper was just the perfect thinness to be creased well and not get poofy when folded. I simply cut it down to a 12 x 12 inch piece and it was just perfect!

 

Since this scrapbook is a mini I was able to use the gorgeous cut apart to be the focal image.  I added Double Dot Jewels, fussy cut images, and a few flowers and trim to finish off the front cover.
 Inside the mini there are pockets to hold tags. There is room for pictures and mementos to be tucked in with the tags so this would make a really thoughtful gift. The tags are topped with a bit of trim to coordinate with the outside.

The pockets are lined with companion papers. Not only doe this give the pocket a nice finished look but adds sturdiness. The tags have sentiments from the sticker sheet.

The outside pockets have tabbed topped tags with more of the fussy cut images. The back is for photos and journaling.

The outside tags are similar but different for a nice coordinated look.

Please enjoy this process video I’ve prepared for you on how I created this mini album….

Sun Kissed Mini (mega) Album with Graphic 45

Standard

Hello there friends and fellow crafters and happy Tuesday to you : ) I’m sharing a mini album I created with Graphic 45 Sun Kissed collection and by mini I really mean mega because this scrapbook is super chunky.  I deconstructed a Square Tags and Pockets album then reassembled it as a Midori style with inserts.

I did say chunky.  This mini is the thickest scrapbook I have ever created! Of course I added loads of charms to the spine after stringing it up and topped them off with pretty bows and vintage button.

This collection has gorgeous patterns so I layered them up and added altered chipboard, flowers, twine, netting, sequins, and Prills.

Each of the 4 inserts have a fully embellished cover. Spacers between the layers really adds depth.

This cover has additional die cuts like the little banner and doily which really fill in the arrangement nicely.

Since the entire collection goes together so perfectly I was able to mix and match the patterns to create similar but different combinations for the inside pages.

I left some of the chipboard in it’s natural color since it coordinates so well with the kraft covers!

This lovely Charmed collection has so many cut aparts and pretty paper patterns, I had a hard time deciding which ones I loved the very best for this post.

Fussy cut images from the 12x 12 sheet are layered here with a doily cut from the BoBunny Darling doily die.

I utilized an image from the BoBunny Faith collection to serve as devotional sentiment. It looks great layered over the cut out frame and give a subtle pop of color.

Lucky Irish Lass Greetings

Standard

Hello friends and fellow crafters! I’m wishing you the luck of the Irish today with this fun and festive greeting card.

 

I just love having holiday themed chippies from GSL to create with because it allows me to scrap my stash and create great cards and decor.

This larger frame is just perfect for big cards like this one…it really fills in the space generously.

I’ve substituted 4 leaf clovers for leaves in the flower arrangement and layered them up with twine and seasonal embellishments.

Speaking of luck….an upturned horseshoe will catch all the luck and good tidings : )

I think this card would make a great addition to holiday decor displayed with fun and festive seasonal items : )

I used my favorite embossing powders to finish the chippies before I added them to this card. A few coats of Stickles are added for  super glittery and shiny four leaf clovers : )

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Also this is a really sweet color combination. Has me thinking Spring….which considering how much snow we still have left outside is a long way away.

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I pulled these flowers to add after being inspired by the background floral pattern.

There’s a companion pattern tucked under this rolled section on the top corner. It adds a lot of dimension.  I hung a few sweet metal charms from a vintagy button so this card could have a little bling.

More flowers here with die cut foliage layered underneath. Stickles added to the die cuts is a great way to add subtle detail.

A Moment in Time Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there and happy Wednesday! Ginny here to share a Birthday card with gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 

Mixing plaids and gingham? Don’t mind if I do.

Adding spiral stamens really bulks up a flower arrangement and loopy string bows fills it in.

More flowers is always the right answer.

I’ve added a die cut banner with metal clip for the front of this card and finished the inside with coordinating paper patterns.

Please enjoy this video tutorial on how I created this card….
