BoBunny ~ 3L Blog Hop Planner Cover w Kiss The cook

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here and I’m excited to be sharing my project for the BoBunny – 3L Blog Hop.  I chose to create a cover for my weekly menu planner . With a busy household and active kiddos we really need to plan our dinners ahead to avoid chaos and too much going out for meals. I found this awesome tablet with a week on each page so I can get the schedule down before I shop.

I love these retro inspired colors and patterns. This is the planner all closed up. It will also be a nice décor piece for my kitchen displayed on a shelf.

Lot’s of  paper patterns here all piled up in one big happy arrangement topped off with a little dimensional banner and layered chipboard sticker.

The inside is finished with the coordinating papers. You can see how easily I can just jot in the meals for each day.

All the extra layers help to give sturdiness to this cover. I also added a sheet of 110 lb cardstock on the back before covering with the polka dots. The tablet is held in with 2 large paper clips on the back so I can swap it out for a new one when this ones used up.

Creating the banner was easy and fun. I used more of the 100 lb cardstock to adhere the banner shapes from the sticker sheet then cut them all out.

I used my Cropodile to punch tiny holes.

To give the banner dimension and to adhere it to the cover I used the 3L 3D Foam Spacers. Love these! This package has 2 sheets with big and little spacers so I didn’t have to clip them to fit, Yay!!!

Blog Hopping with Petaloo and Authentique

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well it’s my turn today to share the projects I created with the gorgeous flowers from Petaloo and the fun and festive patterned papers from Authentique.

Christmas_Time_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Polly's_Paper_Studio_01

I’m using Burlap Poinsettias  to accent the Classic Christmas for this very vintagy card.

Christmas_Time_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Polly's_Paper_Studio_02

The berries add a nice bit of sparkle and contrast nicely with the burlap and velvet leaves.

Christmas_Time_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Polly's_Paper_Studio_03

Tinsel trim and snowflakes are essential holiday embellishments and I’m using these items here to create a frame for the gorgeous Santa image. I added a bit of crackle medium to the image to make it look even more vintagy.

Christmas_Time_Holiday_Greeting_Card_Polly's_Paper_Studio_04

Glittery finished chipboard creates a lovely base for the sentiment block and is topped off with a tiny metal candy cane charm, twine, and clip.

These pretty patterned papers are the perfect paring for the gorgeous Petaloo Flowers.

It’s so bright and cheerful it brings a smile to my face. This Santa is JOllytastic!!!

I totally loaded this card with paper patterns but it’s not too crazy busy because I used solid red cardstock as borders.

Squeeeeee so many poinsettias and velvet and sparkles. This s a bold arrangement to stand out on the papers.

Poofy bow, twine and bell along with a large glittery snowflake are added over stacked paper doilies and burlap ribbon trim. I gave Santa a little star wand to help him on his magical gift giving night.

Oh my goodness Peeps! what a fun adventure we going on with Petaloo, Graphic 45, and Xyron. I created a Christmas card and a festive holiday home décor piece.

graphic-45-petaloo-xyron-blog-hop-01

Not only are we designing with the patterned papers and flowers but also with the super great adhesives.

Not only are we designing with the patterned papers and flowers but also with the super great adhesives.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-02

I used the patterned papers to cover a ribbon spool and chipboard house then used the gorgeous flowers and embellishments to accent.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-03

Tinsel Trim, rhinestones with drop pearls a large jingle bell and tiny brush wreath are added and are detailed with “snow” to blend these elements into a frosty vignette.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-04

This rooftop was a real labor of love! Approximately elebenty hundred buttons are attached to the roof then given a generous coating of the “snow” and topped of with fine clear glitter. It’s a bit magical I think and even almost looks like frosting on a gingerbread house.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-05

As this in meant to be a home décor item I paid special attention to finish it all the way around.

st-nicholas-christmas-house-holiday-home-decor-01

A few star picks and ribbon complete this holiday treasure and even got a little coating of the snow so they would coordinate.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_01

What can I say??? Graphic 45 St. Nicholas Collection  and cards are a match made in heaven.  And I am all over this plaid!!!!!

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_02

I cut the large 12 x 12 inch paper border and mitered the corners to make it fit onto a 6 x 6 inch card then layered in a few additional patterns to fill in the background.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_03

This selection of holiday flowers has me swooning. I added the pick along with twine, chipboard and a metal embellishment for this arrangement.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_04

Incorporating  altered chipboard snowflakes topped with large pearly accents  really helps to add detail.

glad_tidings_christmas-_greeting_card_pollys_paper_studio_graphic_45_petaloo_05

This is a very dimensional card and would make a great addition to holiday décor displayed on mantle or shelf with some ever greens and pinecones.
