Silent Night Winter Birds Christmas Greeting Card with Video Tutorial


Hello everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a lovely nature inspired Christmas greeting card today that I created using the Winter Birds Christmas Tags printable from our shop. I really do love birds in winter….well all the time really. But there’s just something so sweet about a fragile little creature out in the elements and still being lovely.

I chose the patterned papers to coordinate with the tag. The dark red paid balances the holiday foliage pattern.

 These super beautiful flowers are new to RRR and I can not even tell you how much I love them!!! I’ve made a small arrangement here with the blooms and altered chipboard and glittery accents.

The die cut wreath matches the one on the tag perfectly and creates a nice base for all the layers. Adding a bit of chunky twine and a simple tied bow of satin ribbon helps to balance the flowers and tucking in a doily helps to break up the busy patterns.

I am obsessed with actual vintage buttons and I always think they are well worth the work to scour antique shops to find them…like a vintagy treasure hunt.

All I needed to finish this card was a tiny sentiment and clip in holiday green.

We’ve prepared a process video for this card so you can see how it was created.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Vintage Santa Bingo Christmas Greeting Card


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!

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.

Vintage Easter Assemblage for Class


This week my girlies wanted to create a 3d type Easter project and I’m only happy to oblige : ) How could I possible say no to my Peeps???

IMG_2885I assembled this 3d project on a base of a super sturdy particle board plaque with a great hanger on the back : ) I added a vintage sheet music page and layered on all the goodies : ) 

IMG_2894There’s a paper mache box in the corner ( donated by Sassy Linda), I gave it a good paint job and ink..more sheet music, a beautiful scrolly frame with tag, buttons, nest, and crepe fringe.

IMG_2895I added a shredded craft paper nest to the tiny tart tin and 3 sweet little speckled eggs in the nest. A sewn crepe rosette is topped off with a pretty vintage image to carry the soft pink up out of the box.  Fun banner of tags in the top corner : )

IMG_2892I used a Tim Holtz clip to add the vintage postcard image to the inked doily. On top is a fun bingo card, bunny in the best shabby color, tickets, burlap bow, hand crocheted flower and another Tim Holtz pin.

I think we are going to have lot’s of fun creating these shabby chic Easter wall hangings : ) If we don’t glue ourselves to the table that is lol : )

October Blog Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon



Well it’s that time again when us girls at Really Reasonable Ribbon’s Ramblings get to share our projects showcasing the fabulous trims in the Ribbon Club Assortment. This month it’s super sweet and cheerful holiday colors and patterns.


If you’re just getting started….you need to click Here to start at the beginning. Otherwise you should be hopping here from the lovely and talented Misty

Okay…here’s the project I created using the assortment:

IMG_2434-001This card has soooo many glittery inked and chipboard elements. As you can imagine I was quite a mess working on it!

IMG_2429I really thought the Silver Satin Ribbon coordinated perfectly with my shabby chic theme. I made one nice loopy bow and topped it off with Baker’s twine in oyster. Then in the center I added 2 long crystal topped pins that I embellished with snowflakes and 3 painted and glittered tiny jingle bells. Swoon.

IMG_2430I crinkled up the top layer of paper for texture and added the chunky chipboard snowflake that I painted and inked then topped with tinsel glitter. Last but not least a pretty little vintage button.

IMG_2431-001There’s a paper rosette that I inked…and dry brushed and Stickled along with a larger chunky chipboard snowflake. I topped it off with a lovely little printed tag donated by a dear friend. The little button on the tag and snowflake were from her too : ) Thanks a bunch.  Notice how I dry brushed the bottom paper pattern in white to give it a whispy snowy effect?

IMG_2433After last weeks Halloween Banner glitter mess I swore I wasn’t going to be glittering any letters anytime soon…but….I just couldn’t resist. I elevated these numbers on foam to give them some dimension. The sweet little lace border is Catherine White Crochet Lace.

IMG_2427-001Okay that’s it for my project…you’re next stop in the hop is Cherry. I always love every little thing she makes…I can’t wait to see what she came up with..I know it will be fabulous.  

Thanks so much for joining us for our blog hop this month. I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
