Give Thanks Owl Wreath Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there Paper Peeps! Just popping in to share that we are starting a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon today! The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes With Ribbon or Trim. Which is basically awesome right?

I’ve created a little greeting card with an owl in a fall wreath.

I’m quite in shock at how many plaids and checkered patterned papers I was able to work into this card lol.

I added some lovely flowers that matched the ones on the wreath sticker.

More plaid in the bow….because why not?

I worked in quite a lot of spacers to add dimension and to keep the patterns from getting all squished together.

Okay now it’s your turn to create an Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim project and link up with us to play along!

That’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

Happiness Planner with Flip Through Video

Standard

Hey there Peeps! So this is a very different project for me to share today. I’ve made myself a planner for work. I know…it’s not like me. I’m excited to try out …hopefully I will be more organized.

I’m using the serendipity Collection from BoBunny and I just love the vintagy images and soft dreamy colors.

This planner started out life as a pocket folio. The picture here shows the cover and pockets.  And then…..welll…….it accidentally became a planner lol.

Please enjoy the video I’ve created as a flip through of the finished project :

Hello Fall Greeting Card

Standard

Happy first of the month Peeps! I’m sharing my first project created with the new Autumn Harvest Ribbon Club Assortment.

I am sooooo loving this collection of warm rich colors and patterns. While I’m not quite ready to give up summer..these ribbons make me dreamy for cool crisp air and warm sweaters and hot spiced cider.

 

This sweet fox image is also welcoming fall with a fun sentiment banner and perfectly coordinated patterned papers.

I especially loved this Tangerine Taffeta Ribbon. It’s just a bit vintagy looking and not super bright like regular orange. I layered on the pretty crocheted lace and topped them off with buttons.

Just look at this garden of fall inspired flowers!!!!!!!!! I am so in love : ) I’ve got this arrangement accented with the tiny acorns and burlap string.

I will be getting at least one more of this collection as it’s just too perfect for all of the projects I’m planning for fall.

Four Cards for Christmas in July

Standard

Hello there Peeps! Well I’m going out with a bang for my Christmas in July projects and sharing four in the same post! Of course I planned to share one every day….but the heat and humidity had me not in the mood to write posts…so this is the only way to get caught up.

This might be the most traditional card I’ve posted so far..and on the last day too!  I’m combining a swell gingham with what I can only describe as sweater pattern. Is there a name for it? I’ve only ever seen it on Christmas sweaters so that’s what I’m going with.
I’ve got more of the sweater pattern here but this time paired with buffalo check. To ensure that the focal images remain the star of the card I’ve layered them over doilies to separate the busy patterns.

Red doilies? Yep I went there too. And just check out that awesome snowflake ribbon..I am swooning.

Last but not least……this card is my favorite of the batch because that image just yells Christmas with the gloves and cocoa and candy cane. Those gorgeous flowers coordinate so perfectly and the leaves bring a welcome pop of green.

Happy Birthday Butterfly and Vintage Boy Greeting Card

Hello Peeps! Taking a break today from the Christmas in July posts to bring you this very charming Birthday card. I’ve fallen under the spell of the Paper Dolls and this cheeky little fella just caught my eye as I was sorting through them.

Christmas Friends Shaker Tag

Standard

Well helloooo there Paper Peeps. Ginny here with another installment of Christmas in July and this time I’m using a garden full of flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with trims of course.

This is just so cheerful and sweet. I stamped and colored those little images. I do love to color.

Did I mention this is a shaker tag? I’m slightly obsessed with them right now.  Inside are coordinating sequins and Shaved Ice. These little cuties were a bit lost on the busy background pattern so layered in a bit of a snowy border hill for them to stand on.

 

So. Many. Flowers. Isn’t the burlap trim a wonderful texture behind the snowflake printed satin?

I added a bit of tinsel trim for extra sparkle and included a twine loop to hang.

Shabby Chic Christmas Snow Angel

Hey there peeps! I can’t believes I’m this far into Christmas in July  and haven’t created a shabby chic card until now. Must be the heat lol. I’m about to remedy the situation now and share this oh so light and dreamy card with a snow angel.

This charming little snow angel is from the Winter Wishes collection from BoBunny. I’ve given her coat a nice layer of Sugar Glitter Paste so she looks like she’s out in the fresh snow.

These chippies were altered with mermaid tail embossing powder and heat set to look a bit like glass glitter.

Gorgeous flowers from Petaloo with a glittery finish to compliment the frosty effect.
