Smile Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps!  Well we’ve been here in our camper for a week now in the gorgeous Hocking Hills State Park in Ohio and I’ve set myself up with a mobile craft room in the bunkhouse complete with all the things I need to create whilst taking a break from the trail hiking.

This is one of the cards I made in my traveling craft room…

Smile Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I think it turned out really sweet with a simple sentiment and bright cheerful colors.

Smile Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Still working on my camper camera skilz though as the bottom paper is much more pink IRL.  Still pretty good for a camper picture. I choose to use the contrast in the patterned papers to my advantage and make a bit of a color block detail.

Smile Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

There’s pretty flowers here layered over the sentiment and a small die cut doily.  Pretty coordinating ribbon bow helps to fill in the arrangement and anchor it to the card. A few bows of loopy twine and some pearly accents  and this sweet and simple card is done!

Blessed Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps!  We’ll it’s starting to look a bit more like winter is finally coming to an end and no one is happier about that than this girl! So since I’m in the mood for spring how about I share a card with a garden full of spring flowers?

Blessed Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Did I mention that it’s also pink? I’m really loving this shabby chic vibe : )

Blessed Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

This gorgeous patterned paper is from the Authentique Swaddle collection. I know it’s meant for baby projects…but I just love it for this all occasion card.

Blessed Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I added the sentiment tag from another collection but since the writing is in a soft gray I think it goes pretty well!

Blessed Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

These pretty flowers and trim are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. What a perfect combination. I took the WOC pink Magnolia flowers and made them my own simple by switching out the yellow stamens for this light coffee color. You can get these stamens from RRR also!

Blessed Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Old fashioned eyelet lace creates a textural border for the top and bottoms of the raised section. Last but not least shimmery sequins and a matching metal eyelet in the tag.

Timeless Memories Greeting Card

Standard

Good morning to all my crafty friends! Ginny here with another greeting card to share. This is a Scrap Your Stash inspired project because quite honestly it’s time to go through that stash and make room for something new!

Timeless Moments Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’ve had a peek through my ephemera bins and pulled out some coordinating die cuts from different collections that I think go together rather nicely.

Timeless Moments Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Once I found that spool image from the Miss Betty collection I knew I wanted to go for a subtle sewing theme.

Timeless Moments Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I also dug into the paper bins to come up with perfectly coordinating patterned papers and used a warm gray cardstock matting to keep them from getting jumbled.

Timeless Moments Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

These flowers match perfectly! I used more of that gray cardstock to create the die cut leaves to keep the shabby chic vibe.  There’s actual vintage buttons included and a fairly large vintagy scissors charm in keeping with the theme.

Timeless Moments Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Another sewing themed charm for this corner because why not? There’s spacers between the layers to add loads of depth and dimension.

Make A Wish On A Star Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Now that we are officially into the Spring season I thought I would work on Summer projects. Lol just kidding. Totally unintentional. I just happened to be cleaning out my embellishments and found some pretty nautical inspired charms so I thought I might like to make a project with the By The Sea Collection from G45.

Make a Wish on a Starfish Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01 This has always been a favorite collection of mine since back when I served on the G45 design team.  That was a fabby 2 years let me tell you!

Make a Wish on a Starfish Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I pulled the journal cut aparts and patterned papers from the 8 x 8 paper pad. Solid blue matting keeps it from looking busy. There’s also spacers between the layers for added depth.

Make a Wish on a Starfish Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

This arrangement has flowers from Petaloo and WOC. I’ve got some die cut skeleton leaves and cheesecloth tucked in to fill it in and some fun beachy epoxy embellishments included at the top.

Make a Wish on a Starfish Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

Burlap string and the aforementioned charms are the perfect finishing details.
