Trick or Treat Flip Book

Standard

Welcome to day 3 of our Revisit and Remake series. I’m completely obsessed with flip books now so I created another like the Amber Moon book I shared earlier this week.

Trick or Treat Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

I gathered up some fun holiday embellishments for the cover and layered them up with some coordinating flowers.

The spine is decorated with a generously sized bow and metal and acrylic charms.

The inside pages have tip ins and great frames created by layering companion paper over a die cut doily.

The outside pages have corner pockets that hold inserts covered in coordinating papers.

These inserts add so much room for pictures and journaling.

The large cut aparts make great tip ins and you don’t have to sacrifice any of the fun mages if you use them whole.

Double matting for this flip book not only looks great but adds a lot of sturdiness to the new very weighty flip book.

Please enjoy this flip through of my flip book….

Revisit and Remake Day 2 Vintage Halloween Card with Video

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Welcome to day 2 of our Revisit and Remake YouTube Series where we’re taking some of our favorite past designs and giving them new life with new collections, trims, and embellishments. Here is the original card…0000

And here is my remake version….
Vintage Halloween Tag Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The first upgrade I made was to change the card base from 5 x 6 1/2 to 6 x 6 inches to give me more room to add all the fun stuff.

I printed a tag from my shop then picked patterns that coordinated.

To compete with the busy background paper I used the ribbons to create a double layer bow then topped it off with twine and a vintage button.

Handcrafted flowers are so fun to make and you can match them with your project. I’ve tucked in an altered chippie key plate and fussy cut Halloween themed butterfly.

Another small arrangement for the top to balance the larger one.

Last but not least a die cut flourish frame cut in black cardstock then coated with Midnight Stickles creates a nice detail.

Give Thanks Greeting Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Excited to be sharing day 1 of our Revisit and Remake series. I’m picking some of my favorite projects from the past and redesigning them with   new paper collections, fun embellies, and techniques I’ve picked up over the years.

For my first project I’m inspired by this Vintage Children Paris Card…

Vintage Children Paris Card

I just love the warm colors layered over the crisp white die cut doily and the flowers.

My new and improved card….

Give Thanks Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card is created with the Pleasant collection from Authentique.  It has the same rich color palate as the original card but with  more fall inspired sentiments.

Give Thanks Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

To upgrade the die cut doily I subbed in the Floral Lace Panel from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. Same gorgeous contrast but now it has texture too!

Little Birdie Crafts flowers are added in a similar arrangement as the original card but have a lovely seasonal quality with much more layering

Give Thanks Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

The first card had a basic tag tucked under the focal image. The collection I’m working with now had a fabby die cut with a sweet corner detail and it coordinated perfectly!

To improve on the original card I used the tiny clip but upgraded the buttons to actual vintage ones and added a second floral arrangement with bronzy colored keys. There’s also a faux metal number plate.

Please enjoy this process video on how I created this card….

 

I chose the chippies I wanted to use for this project then wiped them down to prepare them for altering.

I finished the  Floral Lace Panel and label with flat white acrylic paint.

I adhered the number plate to the label  then added coordinating brads for a nice finished look.

Graphic 45 Floral Shoppe Mini Flip Book with Video

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I had so much fun creating the last flip book that I thought to myself….what if we make it bigger so we could put more stuff on it? Which is my entire crafting philosophy right? So I did and it’s bigger and it’s awesome!

Floral Shoppe Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

This is created with the Floral Shoppe Collection from Graphic 45. What can I say besides I love it? It’s layered up then topped with pretty flowers and vintage buttons. Floral Shoppe Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve added loads of ribbon trims and sweet little metal charms.Floral Shoppe Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 03

Inside pages have tip ins and pull out inserts. This gives the book loads of extra real estate.

Floral Shoppe Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 04

The Ephemera Cards make great journaling opportunities so I’ve added them to the fronts of these inserts with spacers to create nice dimension and keep the book sturdy.

Floral Shoppe Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 05

The Ephemera Cards are too gorgeous and I wanted to use the full image so I added it as a tip in.

Blessed Mini Flip Book with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! I’ve been experimenting again with some flip book bases and I’ve got one to share today that was very easy to create and looks just perfect for the Fall season!

Blessed Mini Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 01

Because this is a smallish mini I had to be selective when choosing what to put on the cover. I decided that sweet and simple would be best. There’s an image cut apart from the Amber Moon collection from Prima, a die cut doily, some lovely seasonal flowers, and sequins and clip.

Blessed Mini Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 02

I like my inside pages to coordinate so I’ve got them covered in the same dot print that’s matted in chocolaty brown cardstock, with another doily and a pocket to hold a small tag.

Blessed Mini Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 03

Pockets on the diagonal hold inserts to add loads of pictures and journaling. The inside pages have tip ins covering layered patterned papers.

Blessed Mini Flip Book Polly's Paper Studio 04

I chose the cut apart images that were similar but different for a consistent look.

The inserts have more of the gorgeous papers just perfect for Fall!

Shabby French Card with Authentique & Video

Standard

Hello there friends and crafty Peeps! Today I’m sharing a lovely french inspired greeting card I created with the Dame Collection from Authentique…..

Shabby Paris Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

So much shabby chicness!!!!  I especially love the line art Eiffel Tower.

Shabby Paris Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I left off a sentiment because I felt like it would make a pretty little decor piece for a vintagy room.  But I did add all my usual trimmings.

Shabby Paris Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

These gorgeous flowers are from Little Birdie Crafts. They match perfectly! I filled in the arrangement with some pearly headed stick pins, twine bow, and cheesecloth for texture.

Shabby Paris Card Polly's Paper Studio 03 I stitched on some of the layers for added detail.  There’s a fun little coppery colored clip to hold a layered banner cut out.

What I love about this collection is that it has many Thanksgiving images but it also has paper patterns and cut aparts that work so well for fall projects.
