Masculine Card with Spellbinders 3D Vignette Typewriter

Standard

You're Just My Type All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a special project I created with the  Amazing Paper Grace April Club Kit. It’s very vintagy and right up my alley!

You're Just My Type All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

This die set has so much flexibility. I has components to incorporate to make this a stand alone 3D card that can fold flat for mailing. I chose to use the typewriter as my focal point and layer it onto some warm richly colored patterned papers for a more masculine look.

You're Just My Type All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The dies are all separate so you can mix and match your papers to get a very unique look. I cut the base with flat black cardstock then the details with a combination of gold and mirror cardstock. This definitely makes the details pop!

You can even cut the words from a different paper and add a strip of contrasting color to the back for an inlaid look. There are 2 sentiments to choose from….I think this one is too perfect for a typewriter card.

You're Just My Type All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

I’ve tucked in a couple of tags that I cut simply by hand then finished with eyelets to coordinate with my gold theme then a bit of chunky twine on top. A few pretty dimensional flowers and details like sequins and a tiny clip and this card is ready for gifting for just about any occasion!

I admit I don’t sew. I mean to say I can…..I just usually don’t. Unless a button needs reattached or a scout patch needs added to a sash lol.

I’m using my favorite shabby chic color inspiration for this greeting card. There’s just something so vintagy about pink and white.

I’ve created a tag shaped focal point from one of the journal cards from the collection and layered it over the patterned papers and die cuts.

Hello friends and crafty peeps! Today I’m dropping in with a tutorial for an easy to make mini album created with a shaped die. This would be a great idea for just about any holiday or occasion!

Let Your Dreams Set Sail Mini Album Scrapbook Polly's Paper Studio 01

I created the base for this mini with 110 lb cardstock die cut with a coved rectangle shape and covered it with the gorgeous Voyage collection from Authentique Papers.

Pretty coordinating flowers and nautical inspired metal charms are the perfect finishing touches for the cover.

I had so much fun mixing and matching the patterned papers to created layered pages.

The tip ins are covered on the back with a neutral white washed wood pattern ideal for adding journaling to.

Alternating the backgrounds gives me similar but different looks for the inside pages. Remember to utilize the smaller patterns for the pages so you can enjoy the entire image.

This collection has fun graphic images included so I chose my favorites to cover the front of the tip ins.

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I hope you are all staying safe and healthy in these very unusual times we find ourselves in. I know those who can are all hunkering down and spending our time at home.  I was cleaning in my shop and found this chipboard sticker with a lovely sentiment that seemed perfect for this situation….

Not only is it a thoughtful and timely sentiment it’s also printed to look like a letter board! I actually really love those but sadly there is not enough room left in my shop to add one.

Home is the Nicest Word All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

There are quite a few chipboard stickers here layered up to create a nice large focal point.

I chose a pretty and softly hued color scheme. Pink and gold is one of my favorite combinations.

Vintage Easter Deluxe Creativity Kit with Projects

Standard

Hello friends and crafty peeps!  Well I’ll start this post out by sharing that I really struggled with whether or not it was the right time to put out an Easter kit. I haven’t missed a holiday in like 5 years? Tech hubby suggested that we are all celebrating differently this year and there a lots of friends and family we just won’t get to spend time with.  I know sending out cards is not the same as being with loved ones….but it’s all we’ve got for now.  He also reminded me that being creative has really helped to take my mind off things and I think we all need to take a little break from all the insanity. So here is the kit I came up with. Chicks and bunnies and lambs .  I created some projects with the kit for inspiration.
