Black Plaid Ribbon and Black Burlap String are the perfect finishing touch for this arrangement with handcrafted flowers. I’ve mixed in glitter stars and die cut leaves topped off with Stickles.

Halloween Greeting Holiday Wall Hanging

Standard

Hello there Peeps!  Well I’m in the full swing of Halloween here and I’ve got a great home decor wall hanging to share today.

Halloween Greeting Holiday Wall Hanging

Halloween Greeting Holiday Wall Hanging Polly's Paper Studio Handmade 01

I started with some fabby patterned papers with plaids and chevron….my favorites!

I used coordinating patterns to create flowers and gave them a blingy center.

Crazy Cat Lady Haunted House Collage

Standard

Okay I admit it. I’m one of those crazy cat ladies you hear about.  I mean it’s not like we’re outnumbered or anything. We have an equal pet to people balance. But if my youngest who is in college now decided to move onto campus…well….he’ll have to take one of the cats with him lol.
I created this collage inspired by haunted houses.

It may have turned out more cute than spooky.  I like it either way.

I didn’t plan ahead enough to order the actual chippie shingles…so I had to create these out of paper. My advice is order the chippies!!!!! You will thank me later. They look much better and are far less work.

Also I thought for sure I had a door????? Once I was in there was no turning back so I used this arch top window as a substitute and added some faux boards across to give it the look of an abandoned house.  The fence is given a crackle finish to give the appearance of age.

Creepy little spiders and webs are the perfect Halloweeny detail and a bit of old moss to emulate once homey flowers turned withered and old.

 

 

First I decided on the lay out of  the chippies from the Gingerbread House Mini Album Kit and mixed in Halloween elements.

Paper with a brick print was added to the background and snipped out then inked with chalk ink to take the brightness down.

The shingles are created with papers clipped with a scallop edged scissor  then inked and a fine line drawn on.

Once I had the shingles adhered to the base I decided to snip off what would have been icicles on the roof section.

I finished the spiderwebs with a Pitt Pen in black.

The window and door frame are painted in flat white acrylic. The shutters were finished with the Pitt pen. I was concerned the heart cut out was just a bit too cute so I snipped it off.This made the shutter too short. No trouble …I just stacked 2 to get the correct height.

To age the window and door frames they are given a pounce with the chalk ink.

The windows have a layer of velum and printed paper adhered behind and a bit of detail added to the front with a gray alcohol ink pen.

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

Let It Snow Greeting Card

Standard

Well hello all you fabulous ribbon Peeps! It’s the first of the month and you know how excited I get to share my first project with the new Ribbon Club Assortment.

This October Ribbon Club Christmas Assortment has super traditional colors and a bit of a playful side with the little trees and packages.

Let It Snow Christmas Greeting Card

Even with the traditional colors I’m going a bit rouge and just pulling the red and lace out so I can accent this retro inspired card.

Lace layered over ribbon makes such a fabby poofy bow.

I’ve pulled the light aqua from the patterned papers into the flower selection and added a bit of sparkly accent and a little red clip.

The inside of the card is finished in matching papers : )

To dress up this cheeky little snow peep I added coordinating sequins and a vintage button.

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

Hey there Peeps.  The leaves are starting to change here in Michigan and although we are having a bit of an extended summer…..the air will soon turn crisp and cool. I’ve already brought out my fall decor and indulging in pumpkin spice everything.

Beautiful Fox Fall Shadow Box

I used the new Dreams of Autumn collection to create this Fall decor piece. I am sooooo loving that fox image. I plan to put it on everything. No really. I am.

There’s some gorgeous crocheted flowers that I accented with brads in the center and layered on top of the arrangement.

The chipboard leaves were left unaltered so as to not distract from the busy patterns. It adds a wonderful texture.

The background paper is my favorite from the collection. It’s added to the back of a paper mache box lid and topped off with coordinating trim.

Elements from the Ephemera Kit and fussy cut images are tucked in to fill in the display.
