Blessed Mini Flip Book with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’ve been experimenting again with some flip book bases and I’ve got one to share today that was very easy to create and looks just perfect for the Fall season!

Blessed Mini Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

Because this is a smallish mini I had to be selective when choosing what to put on the cover. I decided that sweet and simple would be best. There’s an image cut apart from the Amber Moon collection from Prima, a die cut doily, some lovely seasonal flowers, and sequins and clip.

I like my inside pages to coordinate so I’ve got them covered in the same dot print that’s matted in chocolaty brown cardstock, with another doily and a pocket to hold a small tag.

Pockets on the diagonal hold inserts to add loads of pictures and journaling. The inside pages have tip ins covering layered patterned papers.

I chose the cut apart images that were similar but different for a consistent look.

So much shabby chicness!!!!  I especially love the line art Eiffel Tower.

I left off a sentiment because I felt like it would make a pretty little decor piece for a vintagy room.  But I did add all my usual trimmings.

These gorgeous flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts. They match perfectly! I filled in the arrangement with some pearly headed stick pins, twine bow, and cheesecloth for texture.

What I love about this collection is that it has many Thanksgiving images but it also has paper patterns and cut aparts that work so well for fall projects.

Back to School Tag Booklet Gift Card Holder with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I’m back today with another fast and fun gift idea for back to school. You can really make a teachers day by letting them know how much you appreciate them. Or any member of the school staff like the parent that volunteers as parking lot helper or for the band camps.  The great thing about this tag booklet is that you can adapt it for just about any holiday simply by changing out the paper collection.

Back to School Teacher Gift Tag Booklet Polly's paper Studio 01

I’m using the September page from Graphic 45’s Children’s Hour like in my last back to school project but this time I’m working from the 8 x 8 paper pad to get the right scale for a tag . The patterned papers are from Raining Cats and Dogs and I think they compliment the images perfectly!

Back to School Teacher Gift Tag Booklet Polly's paper Studio 02

To close the booklet and make for easier access to the inside I have a colorful wooden clothespin decorated with a loopy plaid bow topped with a second bow of burlap string and a vintage button. There’s also two sweet little school themed charms for a little bling!

Because these flowers are a generous size I only need two of them to create a nice large arrangement. And they match so well!

Back to School Teacher Gift Tag Booklet Polly's paper Studio 04

Inside I’ve added a pocket to tuck in a gift card. There’s also a tag created with one of the cut aparts from the image sheet. It’s covered it on the back with neutral paper that a sentiment can be added to.

Please enjoy this process video of how I created this tag booklet….

Vintage Times Nouveau Tri-Fold Flip Book

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps!  I’m sharing a sweet little flip book today that I created with the Deluxe Collectors Edition Time Nouveau from Graphic 45.

Time Nouveau Tri-Fold Flip Book Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

I made a larger than regular flip book as I really wanted to layer up the gorgeous patterned papers. I didn’t have envelopes large enough so I created the base for this flip book out of 110 lb cardstock. The Staples tag die makes it easy to cover the tags without even measuring! I’ve tucked in a policy envelope and a tabbed topped sticker from the collection then finished off the arrangement with a large chipboard frame and clock.

Tips ins created with the larger tags  helps to add valuable real estate to this mini.

For the inside I added a layering of pockets and filled them with more tags covered in the collection papers.

These large tags are great for adding pictures and journaling. I finished the pockets with the matching paper pattern for a nice finished look.

Hocus Pocus Mini Album for Authentique Papers

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’m back again to share another project with the amazing new collection Nightfall.  I’m seriously swooning over this collection. It’s all  the things I love….vintage and retro and Halloween!

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

Oh how I love a big chunky mini album! This one is a beast at 6 x 6 x 2 inches and it’s super heavy : )

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve added a garden of coordinating flowers layered over leaves and stars die cut from glitter paper and loopy twine bows.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 03

Spiderwebs with a corner orientation create a nice frame for the focal images . That glitter spider is a spooktacular holiday embellishment.

Metal charms in Halloween themes hang from twine under a loopy bow of houndstooth ribbon.

I had such a good time layering the patterned papers with fun embellishments like the die cut banner and handmade flowers.

Pockets in minis are a must to utilize all the real estate. You can also add additional mementos like tickets or other flat keepsakes.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 07

Inside the pocket is a sweet little folded insert that adds loads of room for pictures and journaling.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 08

This set of pages has a tip in to take advantage of the gorgeous vintage image. I clipped on a smaller image from the 6 x 6 paper pad to fill in the corner. Also it says witches better have my candy. When I ready that I about fell outta my chair laughing!

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 09

Here’s another pocket page. I added another of the smaller images and tucked in a glittey die cut star.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 010

Waste not want not is my motto so I used up a bit of the scrap from cutting the patterned paper into the larger pages and tucked it into this insert.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 011

Here’s another tip in image for this set of pages. I’ve also got a die cut frame accented with enamel dots and a sentiment from the sticker sheet.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 012

The sentiment from this page is fussy cut from one of the larger vintage images. I’ve layered it over a sheet music topped die cut frame and die cut banner. Glitter stars and enamel dots are perfect embellishments for the inside of a book sine they are relatively flat.

Hocus Pocus Halloween Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 013

The last set of pages has a large paper doily turned into a frame by topping it with patterned papers, a sweet little bow and another star.
