Happy 1st of the month peeps! Just dropping in to share my first project with the new Patriotic Assortment Ribbon Club Selection.
This will be perfect for all the summer holiday projects! Great solids with fun and festive patterns!
I created a wall hanging just because I was in the mood to make extra bows lol.
Stars and stripes are my favorite Americana themed patterns. I die cut the base and added layers of 110 lb cardstock to ensure that it would be nice and sturdy.
The focal image is a digital tag from my shop Patriotic Tags Collage. It’s got a metal eyelet with thick twine pulled through and glass glitter stars peeking out from behind.
Coordinating flowers are layered in with Spiral Stamens and a large chipboard sentiment.
The crisp white paper doily works great to break up the busy patterns.
Isn’t this bow fabulous??? There’s a solid taffeta with the satin quatrefoil on top then twine and last but not least an epoxy patterned brad.
Petaloo Flowers~ Darjeeling Blue Anenomes.
Okay that’s all for me. I can’t wait to get more projects started with this ribbon club selection….and get my house all decked out for the summer holidays : ) G
As promised here is the 8th project created with the new Patriotic Creativity Kit 2016. Here is a card I created with awesome chippies, patterned papers, vintage images and loads of embellishments. It would be great as a card…but even better tucked into a shelf or mantle display to enjoy for the whole season.
Let me just say right now, Scribble Frames
are my new favorite!!!!! Just too much fun to layer them up with loads of details. I have a lot of pattern going on here so I relied on this frame finished in crisp white to add separation to keep the card from being too busy.
I added some fun and festive embellies like a glittery star, pearly accents and coordinating flowers. Working in the Hope Chipboard
was a great way to incorporate a subtle sentiment.
Okay that’s all for me…off to my shop to escape from the snow. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Hey there Peeps! Well you all know how crazy we are for summer holidays here at Polly’s. Not only are we fiercely patriotic but my Hubbies Birthday is on the 4th so we have lots or reason to celebrate!!! I created a picnic centerpiece for Graphic 45 filled with a star spangled floral display complete with paper pinwheels andddd it’s in a mason jar which makes it more awesome anddd it has a jar cozy with sections to hold napkins and utensils. So it’s pretty much the most pretty and practical centerpiece ever!!!
Of course I’m using Home Sweet Home with it’s homespun charm and patriotic color scheme!
I created the jar cozy with the Staples Tag Album. It will make switching out the flowers easier and will prevent drips on the pretty papers.
My dear Hubby found these carnations for me to arrange with the glittery stars made with real glass glitter and the paper pinwheels made from the 6 x 6 paper pad and Staples Metal Brads.
Four cozy compartments to hold napkins and utensils. Instead of the cups we used to use that would blow over in the wind lol.
I gave each compartment a different but similar look using the coordinating chipboard.
These Petaloo flowers are actually supposed to be for Christmas…but they matched perfectly to my color scheme so I went with it.
This trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon is hand dyed silk and it’s just gorgeous!!!

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share a very fun and festive Patriotic Wall Hanging I created with the May Ribbon Club Red White and Blue Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I started with a very sturdy base of canvas covered chipboard then layered on paper and images from my Patriotic Creativity Kit
. And topped it off with scrumptious poofy bows created with the Club Assortment. Last but not least I added glass glitter stars and Petaloo flowers.
Okay that’s all for me.Wishing you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Hey there Paper Peeps! I’m getting a good start on my summer holiday projects this year so I will have enough time to get them all finished. Our favorite time of year with my Hubby’s Birthday and patriotic holidays. I’m all about classic Americana so I’m using vintagy images and patterned papers with traditional red white and blue.
I made lots of cards…but I’m waiting to share more on another day….I just love to tease : ) I used vintagy images and patterned papers and bows from my Patriotic Creativity Kit 2015 and added cardstock and bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box. This kit is ideal for cards and banners….but will also make fabulous tags and labels and embellies for scrapbooking.
This is the biggest kit I’ve created so far!!! So much paper pretties to get your craft on with!
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
