Fairy Dust Flip Book Mini Album with Video

Standard

Hello there and happy Saturday to all of you! I’ve got a flip book to share that I created wit the Fairy Dust collection from Graphic 45. It’s so whimsical and springy and purpley!

Fairy Dust Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

I created three A2 sized envelopes with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and joined them to create the base for this sweet book. The cover has pretty coordinating flowers, ribbon trim, berry picks, dimensional butterflies and sequins.

Once the flap is opened it reveals the full front cover underneath. There’s  die cut doily topped with the patterned paper. I’m using grape colored carsdtock throughout the book for consistency.

Fairy Dust Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 03 The first inside page has a belly band with a pull out tucked underneath.  The second page has a tip in created with and image from the cut apart sheet. There is also a generous sized pocket that holds another pull out.

The back pocket section that is the inside of the envelope has one more large pull out so there’s plenty of room for pictures and journaling.

Each outside page has a tip in with pull outs. The center section has  larger section to add bigger pictures.

In total this mini flip book has 6 pull outs for a generous amount of space to decorate.

Happy Easter Wall Hanging with Video for BoBunny

Standard

Hello There Friends and a Happy Monday to you!

I hope you’re all doing well. Ginny here today to share a fun and vintage-y holiday wall hanging I created for Easter. Spring has sprung and I’m so excited to use this colorful and fun new BoBunny paper!

Happy Easter Wall Hanging by Ginny Nemchak for BoBunny using the Cottontail Collection and WeRMemory Keepers Flower Punch Board

I’m using the oh-so-sweet Cottontail Collection for this charming little decor piece. For the base I created a large flower with the We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board and some patterned paper then added it to a layer of Double Dot cardstock for a nice border and to give a bit of sturdiness.

The Noteworthy die cuts have a fabulous selection of coordinating themed elements to choose from. I was going for a shabby chic color scheme so I picked the white fluffy bunny and layered it over the picket fence from the Layered Chipboard Stickers.

To balance the right hand side of the wall hanging I added an arrangement of BoBunny Blossoms to coordinate with the patterned papers.  Additional patterns from the collection, the Double Dot paper and the scalloped edge from one of the die cuts add detail and interest to the bottom.

A few eyelets with gingham ribbon strung through create a hanger for displaying. Doilies tucked in create fullness in the arrangement and provide a break from the busy patterns.  Last but not least a few Double Dot Jewels for  a little sparkle and shine.

Sit back and watch the step by steps if you’d like! Thanks for dropping in today!  See you again soon!

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : )

Just For You Sewing Card

Standard

Hello there and happy Wednesday to you all!  I’m dropping in to share a vintagy inspired sewing themed card. The inspiration for this card was the super charming Faux Wire Hanger chippie from GSL.

 

Isn’t that hanger a great way to bring the sewing look together with the sewing machine image?

The little heart is so sweet : )  It really adds to the country inspired paper collection.

To ensure that I had room for the hanger and the image I overlapped them by quite a bit. To make it look like it was hanging from the chippie I added tiny twine bows on top.

Just an itty bitty collection of coordinated flowers to dress up the top of the hanger.

To work with the sewing theme I added a border of actual stitching with white thread…this also adds texture and draws the eye to the focal point.

I really wanted this to look like a real old fashioned vintage wire hanger so I chose a metallic silver paint that is not toooo shiny and bright. This worked really well to achieve an older look on this fragile embellishment.

If you love plaids and florals and polka dots….the Raining Cats and Dogs collection from Graphic 45 is chock full of them.

Lucky Dog Envleope Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve added a pretty little chipboard frame from GSL to anchor the focal image.

There’s also a lovely selection of coordinating flowers, vintage buttons, a fun metal clip, and ribbon trim in a fabby plaid.

The inside pages have more of the paper patterns layered with pockets, pull outs, and tags.  There’s a schneaky chipboard tab top also for accent.

The little booklet and pull outs provide loads of space to add pictures and journaling.

This collection has sweet little die cuts too so I used them to add interest to the pockets and tag.

Lucky Dog Envleope Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 07

I mean….you can never go wrong with plaids right? I have used them in abundance….making sure to mat them with a sold color to keep the arrangement from getting too busy.

Tips ins added to the pages create  fun interactive element to minis and they also add valuable real estate.

Bless This Nest Greeting Card

Standard

Spring is in the air friends. Not here..but somewhere I’m sure it’s warm and the birds are singing.  We’re still at freezing temps and snow on the ground so I’m making my own spring by creating with this lovely nature inspired paper collection  Seasons from Graphic 45.

Of course this has inspired me to load up the card with gorgeous flowers.

Lucky for me RRR has just the right ribbons and twine for every project I make and this is no exception.

 

The Celery Green Chevron Twill is one of my favorites for coordinating with florals.

I’ve added this little arrangement over altered chipboard to bulk it up and I think the flourish is a perfect addition.

More chipboard for the top of the focal image…this time finished in white to enhance the doily. It adds so much texture!!!

A few fussy cut stamps and a wooden clip finish off this card.

Documented Mini Scrapbook Album Echo Park with video

Standard

Hello there friends and happy Thursday!  I’m still here in the cold and snow making mini albums to keep myself from being a Michigan winter crazy head person.  I’ll either have to move to a warmer climate or change my name to Ginny’s Wide World of Mini Albums lol.   Anyhoo….today’s album is created with For the Record from Echo Park.

Documented Mini Album Scrapbook Polly's Paper Studio 01

Isn’t this a fun vintagy collection?  I created the book base with a box from the recycle bin. Turns out that eating pita cracker snacks is another thing I do well when it’s super cold out. Not good for me..but great for the scrapbooks.

There are oodles of layers here with fussy cut doilies, flowers, vintage buttons, sequins, and pretty epoxy embellishments.

This set of pages has a band with tags tucked in and a raised matted section for larger pictures.

This collection has fun stylized florals and graph papers.

Documented Mini Album Scrapbook Polly's Paper Studio 05 I do love me some tip ins….and I did add 6 to this mini.

These pockets hold pull out flip tags with tabbed tops that add a huge amount of real estate to this mini….also the paper is lined so it’s a great place to add pictures and journaling.

I have the flowers added all the way through the book because they are flowers and more flowers is better flowers.

Foam spacers are added to all the tip in journal cards to help bulk up the mini so it will be a nice chunky look and the cover will sit level with the back spine.

There was a page with border strips in the collection and I chose to snip apart the tickets and use them as tabs for the tags.

The last page has a sweet little birdie sticker layered over one of the many fussy cut doilies. I’ve also layered the smaller doilies to create a nice cluster for the top of the matted picture area.

You should be coming to me from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. You’ll want to start there so you won’t miss out on any of the fun.

That bow is scrumptious! That stitched satin makes for the perfect poof : )

I had so much fun creating tip ins that add a huge amount of real estate in a mini….just think of all the pictures and journaling that can be added!

Pockets hold tags but could also hold mementos like tickets or other flat keepsakes.

Did I mention tags?  I’ve added them in layers….you can never have enough tags!

A great way to add interest to the pages is to add border strips to the top and bottoms of the pages. This set of pages have more pockets and tip ins.

Each of the inside pages have a large pull out of matted coordinating paper for larger pictures. There are 4 in this book so you won’t run out of room to add all the special memories.

Botanical Tea Envelope Mini Album with Video

Standard

Hello there friends and happy Friday to you all! I’ve been hiding away in my shop to keep out of the snow and cold.  I’m keeping myself in a springtime frame of mind by creating another mini album scrapbook : ) This time I’m using Botanical Tea from Graphic 45.  A very springy collection in my humble opinion. The book itself is made from handcrafted envelopes…mostly because I ran out of pre-made ones….but also because I think it gives a thicker more sturdy page. This book as a weighty chunky feel to it. I’ve also created the flowers….to entertain myself during our most recent power outage.

Vintage Easter Card

Standard

Hello there friends and happy Sunday to you all. I’m dropping in to share a very vintagy inspired Easter card I created with a lovely chippie from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

 

Awww this little chap with his basket of eggs is too precious!

I’m using the gate chippie as an anchor for the focal image.

I finished the gate with a blue embossing powder that has  metallic flakes and it  gives it a perfect vintage look.

Not only does it add depth….but it also creates a barrier between the busy cut of the doily.

A sweet and simple collection of old fashioned flowers have twine, and berry stems, and spiral stamens tucked in to create a spring inspired arrangement.

This chippie was a bit too tall to fit on the card so I clipped it in half and removed a section so it will be perfectly sized.

The finish is Atlantic Seaspray embossing powder.
