Nostalgia Christmas Mini Album for Authentique Papers with Video

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a fun and festive Christmas mini album. Okay it’s not so much mini…in fact I think it has turned out to be the heaviest mini I have ever created.  Once I get those gorgeous patterned papers out I can not stop myself. I’m using the amazing Nostalgia collection which is retro and vintagy and all things I love!!!!

Nostalgic Mini Scrapbook Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

I’ve layered the patterned papers here and added a sweet Santa and reindeer image fussy cut from one of the cut aparts.  Flowers, chipboard, and ribbon trims all perfectly coordinated to the collection create loads of detail for the cover.

With such a fabby variety of patterns it’s easy to layer them up. I’m using the same green cardstock matting throughout to keep the patterns from looking busy.

Nostalgic Mini Scrapbook Album Polly's Paper Studio 04

This set of pages has a pocket that holds a folded insert and a trifold section with a magnetic closure.

The insert has more of the patterned papers and has a rounded corner just for funsies.

The trifold is finished on the inside too!

The cut apart makes for a great tip ins.  This one is layered over a large die cut doily and has holiday inspired glittery die cuts for accent. The page on the left opens from the top using a simple tuck top behind a tab created with one of the stickers from the collection. I added it to 110 lb cardstock so it will remain nice and sturdy.

Here is that page opened. So much room inside to add pictures!

I used the cut apart as a tuck spot on this page and it holds a large photo mat. The page on the right has a Dear Santa list sweetly tucked in to a pocket and adorned with more of the die cuts.

Every single piece of this collection coordinates perfectly and keeping the scale in mind will help you to create a combination that does not look too busy.

Just because you can never add too much real estate to mini the whole entire set of pages tips out.  So much room!!!!!!!!

Nostalgic Mini Scrapbook Album Polly's Paper Studio 12

I created side pockets for this set of pages and tucked in some additional photo mats. Those images are so vintagy.

I covered the back and spine in the collection papers and added a metal holiday charm and mailing tags finished with stickers and tied on with burlap string. Last but not least a poofy bow and vintage button.

Beautiful Fox Fall Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Just dropping in to share a very autumn inspired greeting card.  I love fall. It would be my favorite time of year if winter didn’t come right after.  But I’m determined to enjoy it for all it’s worth before the cold sets in.

Beautiful Fox Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using the Dreams of Autumn cut apart sheet from BoBunny. This is the fall collection they released last year but I have hoarded this sheet because of the gorgeous fox image.

Beautiful Fox Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve created a bit of a fancy fold card with it and even managed to include a mini size of the fox image inside!

You can check out how I created this card in this tutorial…

Fall Cards for BoBunny

Standard

Hello friends and BoBunny fans! Ginny here to share a some fall inspiration. Here in mid Michigan we are seeing the temps drop and the leaves changing to their autumnal glory. Now if only that didn’t mean winter was getting closer lol.

Beautifully Brisk_Fall Cards_Ginny Nemchak_Oct 22_01

 

I love the warm rich colors of this collection. It’s just so cozy!!!!

I Love Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I had myself a good ol time creating flowers from the patterned papers. I know they coordinate perfectly and I can make as many of each size as I like. And I like a lot!!! You can use any type of flowers die you have on hand for this or simply draw out a template and trace around and cut them out by hand. Adding  double layer of die cuts helps to anchor the sentiment and break up the busy paper patterns.

I Love Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I used a combination of the brads from the collection and Double Dot Jewels to finish the inside of the flowers. Adding a bit of twine in the form of loopy bows fills in the arrangement and softens the corners.

I Love Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I always like to balance a larger arrangement with a smaller one on the opposite corner. This gives me the opportunity to include additional elements like the Layered Chipboard Stickers and Noteworthy die cuts.

Beautiful Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Once I had the collection on my desk there was no stopping me and I created another card.  There’s a big bold sentiment created with the Thickers spelling out the season.

Beautiful Fall Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I really layered on the elements here including the Combo Stickers, Layered Chipboard, and Noteworthy Diecuts.  A sweet and simple doily cut in crisp white is the perfect finishing touch.

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a little holiday inspiration. No…I’m not done with Halloween yet….but it’s never too early to start Christmas projects.

Hello there friends and BoBunny Fans! Ginny here dropping in to share a very Autumnal greeting care created with the oh so gorgeous Beautifully Brisk collection. I really love fall themed patterned papers and images that are meant to celebrate the entire season and not just Thanksgiving.

Beautifully Brisk_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_Oct 10_01

This card is very nature inspired with layers of the patterned papers double matted and stitched for added texture.

Beautifully Brisk_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_Oct 10_02

The deer is the focal image and comes from the layered chipboard. There’s a subtle glitter effect giving it a bit of festive detail.

Beautifully Brisk_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_Oct 10_03

I pulled many of the leaves and acorns from the Noteworthy ephemera pack to create a swag of foliage.

Beautifully Brisk_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_Oct 10_04

Once I decided on the perfect arrangement I tacked them into place and then stitched them together to create 1 large embellishment. It’s topped off with a sentiment from the ephemera pack and finished off the coordinating brads from the collection.

Beautifully Brisk_Greeting Card_Ginny Nemchak_Oct 10_05

There’s a die cut doily layered in here beneath the deer to help keep the patterns from looking busy. One additional sentiment here on the top accented with acorns from the Layered Chipboard Stickers.

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Just dropping in to share a fun, fast, and easy to make Halloween wall hanging just perfect to add to your favorite holiday decor!

Nightfall Halloween Wall Hanging Polly's Paper Studio 01

 

I love this collection so much! It’s right up my vintage alley : )

Nightfall Halloween Wall Hanging Polly's Paper Studio 05

Fussy cutting the images from the journal cards makes for great focal points. I’ve used a nesting circle die to cut it out and a larger die to cut a glittery frame.  That same layered circle repeats itself with the sticker from the sticker sheet which I have embellished with a clip and metal bat charm. There’s also a bit of that glitter paper to frame the bat sticker to pull the theme together.

Nightfall Halloween Wall Hanging Polly's Paper Studio 04

There’s fun and festive bows created with matching trims topped off with loopy twine bows and vintage buttons.

Nightfall Halloween Wall Hanging Polly's Paper Studio 03

There’s a generous length of the ribbon to hang.
