Advent Calendar with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m super sorry about this post going up so late. I planned to work on it last night so it could go live this morning……but we were out shoveling very late  and I was too tired to edit the video we prepared for this project.

I am really excited though to share this project. I created an advent calendar for my Dear Hubby. He loves really good beer so he will be getting one for each day of the 12 days of Christmas as a special reward just for him.

Advent Calendar Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using Echo Park papers with a fun retro vintage vibe.

Tiny envelopes create the pockets to tuck in the bingo cards with numbers on the back.

Fussy cut stickers are festive accents. This pocket even has twine wrapped around.

Loads of altered chipboard for dimension. Sequins are a fun detail to add and looks a bit like snowflakes.

I’ve added glitter to a few of the sentiment stickers and bling to the chipboard. You can never have enough bling…especially at Christmas.

Last but not least jingle bells, buttons, ribbon trims, and a wooden clothespin.

 

Please enjoy this video we’ve prepared on how I created the base for this advent calendar….

Chipboard corners here create a bit of a frame and since they are painted in crisp white they don’t overpower the patterned papers.

Believe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’ve been a busy little bee creating loads of Christmas projects and I’ve fallen into a Victorian groove lately. Or at least this is my version of it. I think it’s the scripty font on sentiment die cut and the vintagy Santa.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This combination of paper patterns reminds me of wall paper in a lovely old house in England. Not that I’ve ever been. Maybe someday. Travel goals.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

The chipboard window is finished to look very antique and has faux snow in the panes to look like a frosty Christmas scene.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Holiday die cuts are layered here with spacers for depth and some have more of the “snow.”

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

A tiny number tag is clipped on to accent the window. All of the elements here are layered over a pretty die cut doily in crisp white.

I mean if this doesn’t look festive…..well then I don’t know what does! This paper is super Christmasy.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I am a little bit obsessed with creating flowers and to make these coordinate with the holiday theme I added Prills and faux snow.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Can we just talk about these snowflakes???? I just got some shabby embossing powder with tiny gold flakes in it and I think it puts these chippies over the top.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Adding sequins here cuz that’s what I do lol.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

More flowers and die cut leaves. Tucking in a little loopy twine bow really fills in the arrangement.

Vintage Santa Bingo Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Did I ever tell you how much I love adding GSL chippies to my Christmas projects? Well I do…..so much. And I can alter them for any style so that makes them pretty much the perfect embellishment. For this card I’m mixing a bit of vintage with a bit of retro and I think it’s pretty fabulous!

Vintage Santa Bingo Greeting Card

 

I used the chipboard to create a bit of a frame for this Santa image.

 

I choose the colors to coordinate with the papers.

 

And layered them up to create a lovely focal point on this card.

Then topped it off with gorgeous flowers and holiday embellishments.

A bit of ribbon and vintage buttons and voila…Christmas perfection : )

 

I selected the chippies and wiped them down to prepare them for altering.

Embossing powder is a great way to add detail. I’m using silver for the frame and metallic red for the berries.

I finished the snowflakes in white with a sparkly top coat and the stars in chartreuse because it’s fun to say and it looks very vintagy.

Here’s the pan for the arrangement. It looks so festive!!!

Loving the retro and vintage style mixed up.
