It’s Blog HopTime Again


Well I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far…I know I am…we love the warm weather.  It’s also Blog Hop time with Really Reasonable Ribbon and I could not be more excited with Bonnie’s Citrus Ribbon Club selection. I just found a super sweet pic of my great niece that has her modeling a totally adorable ruffly swimmy suit and the colors match the club pack perfectly. I know they are not my usual…but I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Mini Folded Album Tutorial


I’ve sent my sweetie and my little guy off to scout summer camp this week…and I miss them terribly. This year I tucked a sweet little  folded paper mini book into D.H.’s duffel  bag so he’ll know I’m thinking about him while he’s gone. It’s got tiny tags tucked into the pockets to add sweet nothings. Best off all…it started out as a 1 sheet wonder.  I did add a fair bit of details….not so easy in a masculine book It was a great way to use up some bits from the scrap and salvage box : )

Here is a preview of the folded book….IMG_1731

Here is the inside with the pockets…. don’t worry…I’ve written all the mushy stuff on the backs of the tags lol.  I’ve added just a bit of  Seam Binding in Tobacco to 2 of the tags. If I had done all 3 it may have been too bulky. I used a thin width of brown trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon to tie this little book together. You will want to choose the color that coordinates with your paper selections.

IMG_1733Here is the back of book….I used some thin chipboard, die cuts, and stickers. Lot’s of detail…but not too girlie. I should also mention that I’ve inked the folded edges heavily.


Okay…so here is the super easy tutorial. I choose to use Scor-Tape for the adhesive….since it will be taking a beating squished in a bag of camping gear.


I think these would be a great way to give a gift card…or folded up cash…for a more personal gift. Or just a little something to let someone know you are thinking about them : )

I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) Huggs Ginny

Yep I Knew It


I knew once I had this card done it would move right into favorite position. My card from yesterday didn’t get to be #1 for long huh? I’m really quite smitten with these darling vintage children.

I used several patterns of My Mind’s Eye Paper and layered on a few vintage images. The ticket is from Graphic’s Fairy : )

I used a sewing pattern scrap to create a sweet ruffle simply by doing a running stitch through the top and gathering it until I had the length I wanted…then adhered it to the back of a doily trimmed from a sheet of M.M.E. paper. As you can see I inked all the layers well. A pretty cream colored ribbon and bow accent the vintage patterns nicely. I found two chunky chipboard flowers that coordinated perfectly.


There’s a few vintage buttons with string to finish off this super sweet charmer. I’m noticing several specs of glitter that have managed to cling to the card LOL.  What can I say??? When you get the glitter out it has a mind of it’s own. : )
