Hey there Paper Peeps. As you all know….we at Polly’s like to get a jump on our holiday crafting….specifically Christmas…since there’s shopping and cleaning and entertaining …not to mention baking like 30,000 cookies lol. We usually wait for July to do Christmas in July….but we are going out of town for my hubbies Birthday….so we are moving week 1 to June.
For our first class….we are making cards with a Winter Birds theme : )
This card selection has lot’s of patterned papers, vintage images, die cuts, embossing, ribbon, flowers, buttons, twine and tiny clothes pin. I really love winter birds!!! I have a select few kits available….as supplies are limited. If you’d like a kit to create the 5 cards for yourself please check out Winter Birds Christmas Greeting Card Kit in the Etsy Shop. Trust me…you’ll be thankin me later when you are all prepared to send lovely handmade greetings to your favorite Peeps at Christmas time!
All the trims for these cards are from the fabulous Really Reasonable Ribbon of course!
As an extra special treat we are celebrating Anna’s Birthday woot woot…..bring on the junk food and cake lol….not that I ever eat treats lol.
Okay..that’s it for me…off to finish kits to be shipped tomorrow : ) Never a day off for us creative types! Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )G
Hey there Paper Peeps. I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend! As for us…we are heading down for another family fun day at Cedar Point….we are a roller coaster loving family. Not a traditional way to spend a holiday…but it’s our tradition and I can’t wait to get there.
I’m dropping in to share the fun and festive holiday banner we are creating in class this week. This baby will be hanging on my mantle all summer!
I layered the patterned papers with Cricut cut letters, Stickled vintage images, handcrafted crepe fringe, die cuts, bows, fun dimensional bows and layered patriotic tags!
This is my favorite banner I’ve created so far!!!! We are gonna have a super fun time making this in class : ) If you’d like a kit to create a banner too…just hop on over to the Etsy Shop. This will be a fabulous addition to your favorite seasonal decor!
Wishing you all a happy and safe holiday : ) G
Hello all of you fabulous Paper Peeps first I want to share with you some pretty awesome exciting news…..we have made the top 30 finalist for the Graphic 45 DT audition….one round to go…I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks for all the encouragement and support, for all the FB likes and Pinterest pins!!!! #goteamginny!!!! Thanks to Linda for thinking up our team slogan : ) I’m very honored to have a place with so many deserving talented artists and I’m wishing us all lot’s of luck for the next round!
What would be exciting after that???? Well I am sharing the fun and festive 3d Patriotic project from our class last week. Thanks to Linda for finding the awesome little stripy baking pans that inspired this Americana decor.
There were soooo many pieces to this project….but my girlies were good sports. I can tell you we did get into our usual sass and shenanigans so we had a pretty late night…but I’m thrilled with this project and I’ll be adding this to my favorite seasonal decor for all the summer holidays and my sweeties Birthday.
Did you notice those super fabulous burlap bows????? I am sooooo loving the Navy Center Stitch Burlap ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Okay Peeps…it’s out to the cold for this girl……going in to the shop to make some cards and leave some love for the other 30 finalists…I hope you do to! I’m wishing you all a happy and productive day and time to be creative : )
Well we had lot’s of fun and lot’s of laughs in our class last night…and we even managed to get our projects done too! We created this super sweet Vintage Valentine Love Mini Album.
The front cover has a lovely vintage image ( Stickled of course) hand crafted tinsel topped crepe fringe, flowers that have been inked, pearled, glittered, and finished off with a pearly stamen center. Many of the elements have been raised on foam dots so it’s very dimensional. A tiny little clip is a cute addition.
There are a few kits available for those who couldn’t make the class. Vintage Valentine Love Mini Album. Click the link for all the details.
We used lot’s of trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon: Burlap Center Stitch Pink, Totally Twill Pink, Pink Satin with Silver Edge, Totally Twill Cream, Ivory Satin, Red Gingham.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative: ) G
Just popping into share one of the projects we are creating in class Tuesday. It’s an ornament. Well…actually it’s a tag. But I put a big loop on it to hang on the tree….so technically it’s an ornament lol.
This is gonna be a fun class….can’t hardly wait. Of course I used Really Reasonable Ribbon to create the loop for this ornament!
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
