Happiness Butterfly Greeting Card

 Hey Peeps! Ginny here to share a card that I created with sooo many layers. All the fabulous supplies were just calling to me.

I’ve gone just a bit mixed media and a whole lot vintage with this all occasion greeting card.

There’s 2 colors of gorgeous Burlap Sting tucked into the flowers.
Stitching adds a nice texture and a subtle detail.
So.Many.Layers. An altered chipboard element to dress up the focal image.
Believe it or not…all of these yummy pieces were just regular stash waiting to find a nice home.

CAS Butterfly Greeting Card Set


Hey Peeps. Well I’m going CAS today. I know..it surprised me to. When I got my supplies out to create cards all the fun little images and die cuts just fell into place and I thought why not? Everything doesn’t need to have flowers and chippies and embellies. Sometimes you just need a quick card that’s good for any occasion that can be mailed in a regular sized envelope right?


I had a fun time mixing some vintagy patterns of paper with some that were just a bit edgy and on trend. Layers of die cuts, RRR trims, and simple pearly accents create loads of detail.

Diamond Satin Ivory.

Plaid Ribbon Apple Green.

Seam Binding Melon.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

April Blog Hopping with RRR


Hey there! Time again for another fun hop at RRR.

10308279_717292838322738_8108547784177054821_nWe’re sharing the projects we created with the Aqua Ribbon Club Aqua and Coral Mix.

516b6-aqua2band2bcoral2bmixYou know I love these fresh bright colors! One of my favorite combinations : )

You should be coming to me from Gloria. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

So I’m sharing many projects today as I’ve created a really great new Butterfly and Clocks Tags Digital Collage Sheet and once I printed it I was having so much fun I couldn’t stop. The great thing about this sheet besides the fact that it’s a Dollar Download Item is that you can create 3 finished tags with the sheet just as it is. Or if you’re like me…you can add extra emebllies to incorporate your own personal style.

Butterfly Clock Tags 1 Polly's Paper Studio

The first one on the left is created just by snipping out the images and assembling the layers.  I added some 110 lb cardstock to the back as well to make them more sturdy. Topped off with my RRR trim it’s gorgeous and ready to add to a gift or to label a baked treat. The one on the right has some mixed media supplies added to antique the images a bit and then was assembled with foam spacers between the layers.  More trims, a metal eyelet and lace kicks it up a notch.

Butterfly Clock Tags 2 Polly's Paper Studio

These tags have the same images but I’ve added chipboard, dimensional flowers, and metal embellies.

Butterfly Clock Tags 3 Polly's Paper Studio

I’ve taken the tags a bit further now and added one to a card base with simple cardstock and an embossed texture. I’ve wound the ribbons and lace around to create a coordinating background that shows off the focal tag as the centerpiece.  And last but not least…my favorite.  I dug in my stash just a bit to find some patterned papers that matched the butterfly and created a larger tag to adhere a die cut doily, the printed and snipped images, flowers and more of the beautiful RRR trims.

I could have kept going all day as there are so many great uses for tags.  And at only $1 for the download file  I’ll bet you’ll have a hard time stopping too!

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

Show Me The Green Challenge at RRR


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.


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


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


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

keep-life-beautiful-wall-hanging-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-02 Tiny resin lock plates are topped off with plaid cabochons layered on the embossed butterfly chippie.


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 had fun playing around with some resist techniques and inking for the base of this tag.

Life is Not Measured Tag 2This butterfly was colored with Spectrum Noir markers and added with curved wings to create dimension.

The scroll frame was die cut and a layer of lattice was added for texture. I added the stamped sentiment with a metal clip and attached the bow.
