Retro Valentine Banner Kit


Hey there Peeps! I’m dropping in to share a Valentine banner. I really wanted to take cute picture of it……but it’s too long to get all in one pic : (  I had the ambitious plan to make over a mantle from a no longer working electric fireplace. I thought I’d paint it white and distress it…then I could use it to take all kinds of fabby pictures.   That is until the boys found it.  They gutted the heater unit out and replaced it with giant speakers and they’re using the top for their TV in the mancave : (  I guess I’ll be on the lookout for a nice big shelf. In the meantime…..

Chunky Vintage Halloween Album


 Hi there! It’s Ginny here sharing a fun and festive Vintage Inspired Mini Album I created in the shop this week for my class. The base of the book is paper bags…but folded to make fabulous pockets for tags and pictures. It also makes the album super sturdy and chunky! I even had to add extra large rings : )

The best part???? The wonderful coordinating trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon!


I added the Black Gingham, Satin Scallop Edge, and Diagonal Stripe to the rings. There are tons of other great choices of ribbons and trims for your Halloween projects in theHoliday section. You should hop on over and check em out. Also for my album cover, I added a stamped ticket, chunky rosette and a metal mailing tag rimmed black clock. The Witches Ball image is from Graphic’s Fairy.


The pages inside have pockets that hold tags.  It’s a little hard to tell in the picture…but the pumpkin images are raised on Foam Dots to make them dimensional. I used a funky striped straw as a pocket topper and added Tim Holtz clips as fun metal accents.


There’s another rosette as the topper to the tag in this pocket. I added tinsel trim to top this pocket for a little sparkle. There’s a fun banner at the top of the right side page to carry the orange over to this side of the book.  The little boy image is on foam dots for dimension.


 Another straw..this time in orange. I added a glittery spider web…just because I could and topped it off with another rosette. 

The girlies and I will have lot’s of fun creating these albums Tuesday in class. I will also have a limited amount of kits available in the Etsy shop.

Okay..that’s it for me. I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. : ) G

School Themes Mini Album


Here’s a cute little mini album I whipped up in the shop yesterday….just right for those kiddos going back to school.

IMG_2198For the cover I’ve layered some pretty patterns and vintage images. Lot’s of ribbon from RRR and buttons with string. Great little paper rosette is a nice dimensional embellishment.

IMG_2201There’s glassine bags holding tags between the pages for more room to add pics and journaling. Isn’t that tiny clothespin a fun topper for the tag?

IMG_2205Here’s another tag in the pocket on the right side page. That little serious student looks like I do when I try to do math lol.

IMG_2206Another glassine bag.

IMG_2207I love the ruled paper on these pages . Just right for journaling.

IMG_2208This is my favorite set of pages : ) So colorful and cheerful and tagful…yep that’s a new word lol.

IMG_2209Last but not least….ABC stamps…how adorable.

IMG_2197-001Here’s a little closeup of the rosette.

The trims I used on the little mini are Rust Organza, Brown Twill, and Brown Striped Grosgrain.  This mini is available as a Kit. Just right for back to school pics, or gifts for teacher or grandparent…in time to get done before the holidays.

Okay that’s it for me this morning. Time to get ready to go to the shop. I’ve got shabby chic on my mind today so be on the lookout for something girlie and pink tomorrow lol. Tonight we’ll be at the high school football game to watch Jonathan in the marching band. Go Pirates!!!!
