Grateful Thankful Blessed Mini Album

Standard

Hello there friends and Authentique Paper fans!  Ginny here with a project created with one of the gorgeous new collections. Mister is so warm and rich and full of gorgeous patterned papers, and vintagy images.  When I can’t decide what paper to use I just make a mini album so I can use all the patterns!!!!

Grateful Thankful Blessed Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

The cover is well layered with the papers all matted in the Spectrum cardstock that coordinates so perfectly. This sentiment has one of my favorite sayings. It’s sweet and humbling all at the same time. It was part of one of the journal tags and clipped out with a circle die.

I picked a few coordinating flowers and created a bit of a frame for the sentiment. The spine is finished with the papers and has some unique little vintagy inspired charms and a large bow made of satin ribbon.

I thought this bronzy metal embellishment went well with this warm rustic theme.  The inside has a second sentiment clipped from another journal card. More flowers here for balance as well as some sequins and metal gears.

The first set of pages has a nice large area for a bigger picture and a tuck spot to include the full sized journal cards. The backs are finished so private journaling can be added. I included  a second layer of matting to brighten up the darker colors. Not only does this look nice but every layer of paper added makes this book heavier and more sturdy. This book weighs so much lol.

I told you I was wanting to use all the patterns right lol?  This time I picked the paisley print and added a graphic stripe. Pockets hold folded inserts for more room for pictures. and extra mementos.

This fun pattern is like old timey news print with all those classic cars! Can you only imagine driving around town in one of those?  I’m a pickup truck girl myself as we live out in the country so these fancy cars are not very practical right?

I can never get enough tip ins. Why not utilize all those awesome journal cards? These are very inspirational don’t you think?

Grateful Thankful Blessed Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 08

Under those tip ins is a large full sized page for loads of space to add your own perfect details.

Speaking of full sized pages…..these pages are full sized tip ins.  It just keeps going and going!

This sweet sentiment was part of a new collection from Eco Park. Why not freshen up some older supplies with a pretty new accent.

CAS Cards

Standard

Hello there peeps! Well I finally did it. Maybe. I feel like I did. I’ve been trying to conquer some clean and simple cards. Although these may not technically qualify….for me this is a pretty major accomplishment.

Thinking of You Greeting Card 2 Polly's Paper Studio 01

Also using paper from my stash is a win.  Andddddd created some not poofy flowers.

Thanks So Much Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve utilized some of my new dies and just basic layering for these cards.

The trouble with CAS for peeps like me who really love to pile on the paper and embellishments is working with less but making a card that still looks finished. I’m quite pleased with how they turned out.

Precious Vintage Mini Album

Standard

Hello there friends! Dropping in to share  a sweet vintage inspired mini album today. I’m using the Close Knit collection from American Crafts.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

This is a super chunky and heavy 5 x 5 x 1  inch mini album base that I created and covered with layers of the patterned papers.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 02

Stacking the cut apart images creates a nice focal point. There’e coordinating flowers, ribbon, and vintagy inspired embellishments.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 03

Inside I’ve got combinations of the cut aparts along with a die cut frame and a tip in for extra space for pictures and journaling.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 04

Large pockets hold folded inserts. The non contrasting patterned papers makes for a great place to add writing.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 05

Plenty of room in the pockets to add extra mementos and items you don’t want to adhered to the book.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 06

I love this set of pages. The doily topped with the matted die cut patterned paper becomes a nice photo area and the faux belly band secures an accordion fold section. It’s always fun to have interactive portions on a mini album.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 07

Remember to alternate the paper patterns for a more interesting look.

Precious Scrapbook Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 08

This set of pages has the gorgeous chevron wood grain pattern. I created a small envelope with the WeR Punchboard and added it to provide a pocket to tuck in tags and small mementos.

Authentique Love Cards

Standard

Good morning peeps! I hope you are having a lovely start to your day. We started with a bit of a thunderstorm but the clouds seem to be clearing off and hopefully we will get some sun.  I’m sharing 2 cards today that I created yesterday after a frustrating time attempting to be productive on the computer. I swear it can smell the fear in my like a wild animal. Anyhoo I had no luck with the techy stuff so I settled in to make cards.

Happy Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

For my first card I’m using the Dreamy collection.

Happy Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

The sweet little girl image was the inspiration.  So charming : )

Happy Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I created a stacked fishtail banner element with the patterned papers then layered on the image.

Happy Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

This small arrangement is filled in with die cut foliage and fussy cut butterflies.

Happy Birthday Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

This simple sentiment is stamped and die cut then layered over another butterfly. I finished the card with a loopy bow, butterfly charm, and sequins.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card has a similar but different layout and the gorgeous Glamour collection.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Spacers between the layers adds lots of depth to this design.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Instead of using my usual solid cardstock I utilized the blue patterned paper from the collection since it matched so perfectly.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

I know I keep saying I’m going to make more simple cards and I really do try but for some reason when I get that flower bin out I can not help myself. I also found some pretty vintagy blingy embellishments to tuck in.

Thinking of You Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Another stamped sentiment and some pretty charms to finish off this card.

Bee Happy Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends! Ginny here buzzing in with a sweet and cheerful bee themed card…

Bee Happy Greeting Card 2 Polly's Paper Studio 02

Awwww I love this card! Instead of going with a yellow and black color scheme I went with blue and yellow and I think it just brightens up the entire card.

Bee Happy Greeting Card 2 Polly's Paper Studio 01

The sentiment block is small but I looks perfect tucked into that chipboard frame.

Bee Happy Greeting Card 2 Polly's Paper Studio 04

Pretty flowers here are layered up with die cut foliage and loopy twine bows. I’ve added a few bits of Nuvo Drops for a fresh morning dew look.

Before you get your day started I wanted to share a card I created for the Easter  group post from the design team at Authentique Papers. You can find more inspiration on the Authentique Blog.

Happy Easter Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio (J) 03

This card is made from the super gorgeous Abundant collection.  What can I say? You know I love it!

Happy Easter Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio (J) 01

I seldom use the patterned papers in place of my regular solid cardstock but the basket weave print was such a perfect match I could not say no.

Happy Easter Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio (J) 02

Using spacers between the layers really bulks this card up. So dimensional! I’ve added a tag from the Elements sheet to the top and clipped on a sweet little bunny charm.

Pretty matching flowers come from Really Reasonable Ribbon. They’re layered on some die cut foliage and loopy twine bows.

Last but not least is another tag from the die cuts sheet. I’ve added eyelets and ran some twine through for extra detail and topped it off with shimmery sequins. Final step is to add a few blingy pearls.
