Shabby Chic Spring & Easter Decor

Standard

Happy Tuesday Peeps! I’m always so cheered up to see a bit of spring after a long cold winter. I’m not a gardener…..but we live in the country and I do enjoy seeing the farmers tilling up their fields and the animals spending more time out of their barns. My projects for today have springy flowers and little sweet bunnies.

I’m using the Vintage Easter Bunny Ticket Digital Collage Sheet from my shop for the inspiration. These are available for instant download so you can create some Easter themed décor too!

Spring Wall Hangings Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio

I used 2 bunny tag images from the same collage sheet and created a wall hanging and tag.

Because I was hoping for a country chic look I used the stitched burlap trim to create poofy bows and used sturdy wire to create a hanger.

The paper has a wood grain pattern and it’s used to create a base as well as a tiny envelope to tuck the tag into.

Loads of flowers mixed in with lace, die cut doilies, and altered chipboard.

Ribbon trim and twine help to anchor the arrangement and Prills, pearly headed pins and epoxy embellishments fill it in.

Easter Bunny Ticket Holiday Home Decor Tag Polly's Paper Studio 01

This tag is full of country charm with the checkered background and burlap flowers.

Vintage buttons, butterflies, and clip are simple  but add quite a lot of detail.

This arrangement is the perfect combination of soft muted colors and textures.  There’s a bit of twine and berries tucked in and a generous length of lace and washi tape.

Love Never Looses Faith ICAD Box with Tabbed Dividers

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well if you’re following me on Instagram you will know that I have been having a good ol time creating card for my ICAD or Index Card A Day. I’m practicing with my mixed media supplies and creating art that’s just for fun.   I decided I needed a place to keep all my little artworks so I created the box with an upcycled recipe box and the new Faith Collection from BoBunny.

love-never-looses-faith-inspirational-icad-box-with-tabbed-dividers-02I gave the box a basecoat of the Creamy Acrylic Black Paint by Pentart. This is so rich and creamy it takes only one coat!!!

love-never-looses-faith-inspirational-icad-box-with-tabbed-dividers-01

Layers of the patterned papers with Layered Chipboard Stickers, die cuts, stamping, and pearly accents.

The box is finished on the inside as well. I switched to the 6 x 6 paper pad to utilize the smaller patterns.

Tabbed dividers will be a great way to flip through the cards and keep them organized.

The fronts of the cards inside have the collage work and the backs are for journaling. It will  be nice to have a smaller amount of room to fill up with thoughts as sometimes you want to write something inspirational and personal. Sometimes you want to say I love tacos and thank God for cats. Less pressure means more spontaneous journaling.

Show Me The Green Challenge at RRR

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I bet you thought since we’re starting a new Show Me The Green Challenge that I would be making a St Patty’s Day themed project. Surprise! I didn’t hehe. I made a wall hanging inspired by a sweet and thoughtful sentiment from a cut apart on my fav new paper collection.

keep-life-beautiful-wall-hanging-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-01

I’ve got an graphic olive colored stripe layered in with altered chippies and oodles of flowers.

keep-life-beautiful-wall-hanging-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-05

There’s a strip of gold and white striped washi to coordinate with the butterflies. Vintage buttons are always the right answer.

keep-life-beautiful-wall-hanging-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-03

So. Many. Flowers. Sisal and loopy bows made from twine are tucked in to fill in this generous arrangement.

More Petaloo flowers here along with tiny resin flowers.  I’ve added a double layer bow topped off with a button, tag, and peraly stick pins. That gorgeous frame is a scribble frame with white embossing powder that’s heat set. Last but not least a pretty die cut doily in crisp white.

I Love You Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Happy first to all of you. And it’s a happy first for me as well because I get to share a project created with the new March Ribbon Club Assortment.

What a colorful collection of satin and grosgrain ribbons!

 

I was so inspired by the Daffodil Checkerboard Ribbon that matched the Petal Lane Collection that they could have been made to go together.

Not All Who Wander Card Collection

Standard

Sooooo I created these cards and totally forgot to post them. How on earth did that een happen???  I’m usually so excited to share things that I have to stop myself from posting 5 times a day lol. I just happened to spot them when I was scrolling my Instagram feed and boom there they were like little lost orphans : ( So today is the day for them, finally lol.

not-all-who-wander-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

I’ve been challenging myself to make some cards that art not quite as poofy so they are easier to mail in a regular envelope. This is so hard for me with all the pretties at hand that I want to attach.  This is a good compromise though……just enough without being too much.

excursion-vintage-inpired-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

More washi and handcrafted flowers with pretty brad centers. The kraft doily looks amazing with the black borders and tiffany blue and gold stripe tape.

take-me-away-bicycle-tag-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

I am super in love with this bicycle tag!!!! Also I added a layer of vintagy washi tape to act as a border…..and it matches perfectly to this Carta Bella paper.adventure-all-occasion-greeting-card-pollys-paper-studio

Vintage train tag???  Don’t mind if I do!  These polka dotty flowers are coordinating so perfectly!  It’s a little bit masculine…..but still having a lot of detail.

The best thing about these beauties aside from the fact that fit nicely in an envelope….they are really great for any occasion.

These cards are all available in the shop.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

 

 

 

 

 

Sport Themed Party Décor for BoBunny

Standard

It’s party time Paper Peeps!  I’ve got a fun selection of sport themed party décor created with the new Game On collection.  There’s a festive banner with multiple sports represented, pennant picks to dress up baked goodies, and jazzed up straws in a box decorated with a banner and crinkle cut filler.

Isn’t this a fun grouping?  I love all the little coordinating details.

I used the Lasur Gel Stain in Chestnut to add color to a tiny box that came in the mail with washi tape. Because the box was shiny the finish has a mottled effect that looks a bit like wood grain. I filled it with floral foam and added crinkle cut kraft paper then inserted the straws that were decorated with  a sport tag simply by cutting notches on the top and bottom and sliding the straw through.  Additional stars are used to accent the tags. They were leftovers from the die cuts that are added to the banner. This display would make a great centerpiece.

Can’t get any easier than adding pennants to long wooden picks and inserting them into baked treats.

I choose to represent all the sports for this banner with a section for each and strung them together with coordinating ribbon and fussy cut tickets hung between.

For a consistent look I used the same background paper and striped topper. Orange borders tie the whole thing together.

It’s very important to remember to use metal eyelets at the tops of banner to keep the ribbons from pulling through.  Adding the die cut stars helps to add texture and detail.

Soooo many layers! These banner sections have a lot of depth and dimension with the spacers between the layers.
Okay that’s all for me. We are ready to get our party on!!! Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
