Halloween Mini With Stand

Standard

Well hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’ve got a great Halloweeny project to share today that I had an absolute blast creating.  Might be a record for the number of chippies I was able to add.  I stared with the  Tablet/Phone Stand but instead of using it for it’s intended purpose I’m decorating it up to hold a fun and festive Halloween mini album.

Isn’t this just the most spooktacular addition to holiday decor?

The holder looks just as festive without the book. I super love the vintagy pumpkin.

The cover has a layered frame finished to coordinate with the image and patterned papers.

The base of the book is an ATC Folder which has the pockets already built in! Each pocket  holds a tag layered up with the papers and vintage images.

Each pocket also has a folded insert to add loads of real estate for pictures and journaling.

Each insert also has a clip to hold mementos that can be added without gluing them down.

This stand is so perfect for holing the mini album without the worry of it tipping over.
Please enjoy this video share of this Halloween decor and scrapbook….

 

I’m starting with the Tablet/Phone Stand and the ATC Folder. Wipe them down with a damp cloth to prepare them for finishing. I coated them with flat black acrylic paint. I’ve also got a Doodle Frame Rectangle ready for altering.

 

The frame needs to be separated to finish. I chose to coat the smaller bits with silvery embossing powder and heated it to set. The inside of the frame is coated in the black paint then stamped with a clear embossing powder and set again. This creates a very subtle effect that’s similar to damask pattern.  I’ve clipped the bottom off the Wrought Iron Fence and trimmed it to fit the front of the holder. I’ve also brought in some Mini Petal Corners and a pumpkin from the Spooky Shape Set.

 

The silver embossing powder works for the fence and corners. I’ve adhered them to the stand then used a metallic paste wax to add a vintgy detail to all the corners. The front of  the pumpkin is covered in orange paint and the back has black. I adhered the pieces then used my alcohol markers to add detail. The leaves have green paint. On the finished project I added Stickles to highlight the details.

Happy Halloween Butterfly Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I liked the idea of creating a wreath with some spooky elements.

While I was in a layering mood I decided to stack up the ribbons from the assortment to create an extra poofy bow.  There’s twine and a vintage button there and a couple of metal charms in holiday shapes.

To give the wreath a nice shape and to help fill in the gaps I have some die cut leaves in black coated with Stickles for added detail.

Chunky chipboard stars in a silvery finish add sparkle and brighten up the arrangement.

More bows of loopy twine create fullness and gives this wreath some texture. A clip in coordinating color is the final detail.

Scrap Your Stash Projects with the Halloween Cut Aparts Printable

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Dropping in to share the projects I created as scrap my stash with a new printable from my shop.  I created a collage sheet with images that would work well with just about all my Halloween scraps…..which as you know I do accumulate them fairly quickly when I’m creating lots of mini albums and flip books.

Paper piecing on a shaped background to create a fun decor item then topped with the printed image and vintagy findings.

Creating cards in the A2 size means the scraps can cover the width of the surface. Just find patterns that go together and assemble them on solid colored cardstock. Don’t forget to add fun holiday inspired  trims and embellishments.

Dress up a simple tag to use on a gift or label a tasty homemade treat! It’s also a great addition to a vintagy seasonal vignette.  Adding Stickles and inking the edges really helps to bring out the details.

Here’s the printable…

Rare Oddities Mini Tag Flip Book with Video

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps!  I’m writing this post in our snug little home away from home on the beach. We’ve taken the kids (yes I know they’re all grown) on a camping adventure and we’re having the bestest time!

Today is also day 6 of our YouTube series Revisit and Remake. This project is not one of my past projects but was inspired by me friend Sandi from Decor8yourlife.

Rare Oddities Mini Tag Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

I used the Rare Oddities collection from Graphic 45 for a Halloweeny theme. I have layers of the patterned papers topped with coordinating flowers and sequins, a sweet little plaid bow, and a closure created with an owl charm on twine wrapped around and tucked under to keep everything secure.

The cut aparts make great tips ins.

Companions Tag Album for Authentique Papers with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there friends and crafty peeps! I hope you all are having a fabulous Friday! I’m dropping in to share a project I created with the gorgeous papers from Authentique. This week Polly’s Paper Studio has been having fun recreating some of our favorite projects from the past but giving them an upgrade with new paper collections, trims, flowers, and embellishments.  The Companion collection inspired me to redesign a tag styled mini album and I had so much fun creating it!

These warm rich colors are just so gorgeous!

For the cover I used a large sticker from the collection and popped it up on foam to add loads of dimension. There’s lots of layering here and pretty coordinating flowers and trims.

Companion Cat Tag Album Polly's Paper Studio 03

Images from the 6 x 6 paper pad are the perfect size for tags! I’ve used the Spectrum Cardstock as the base for these tags layered over thick chipboard to make them super sturdy.

Alternating the scale of the patterns is the secret to successful pattern layering. And using a cardstock border to keep the busy patterns separate.

Pretty trims and vintage buttons are the perfect accent without being too cluttered.

The lines on the Spectrum Cardstock make the perfect place to add journaling.  Bind the tags up in a generous sized clip ring to make it easy to remove the tags for adding pictures and memories!

I just can’t get enough of all these patterns together!
