Lucky Irish Lass Greetings

Standard

Hello friends and fellow crafters! I’m wishing you the luck of the Irish today with this fun and festive greeting card.

 

I just love having holiday themed chippies from GSL to create with because it allows me to scrap my stash and create great cards and decor.

This larger frame is just perfect for big cards like this one…it really fills in the space generously.

I’ve substituted 4 leaf clovers for leaves in the flower arrangement and layered them up with twine and seasonal embellishments.

Speaking of luck….an upturned horseshoe will catch all the luck and good tidings : )

I think this card would make a great addition to holiday decor displayed with fun and festive seasonal items : )

I used my favorite embossing powders to finish the chippies before I added them to this card. A few coats of Stickles are added for  super glittery and shiny four leaf clovers : )

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card

Standard

Hello there and happy Saturday! Hope you are all well in this fin February morning : )  I’m dropping in to share  a lovely country chic inspired greeting card.

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Anytime I can bring together a wood grain with a floral and a doily…. I am so there.

Also this is a really sweet color combination. Has me thinking Spring….which considering how much snow we still have left outside is a long way away.

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I pulled these flowers to add after being inspired by the background floral pattern.

There’s a companion pattern tucked under this rolled section on the top corner. It adds a lot of dimension.  I hung a few sweet metal charms from a vintagy button so this card could have a little bling.

More flowers here with die cut foliage layered underneath. Stickles added to the die cuts is a great way to add subtle detail.

The lovely sentiment is stacked over a doily image and additional paper layers. Actual vintage buttons are a last but not least embellishment on this old fashioned inspired card.

A Moment in Time Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there and happy Wednesday! Ginny here to share a Birthday card with gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 

Mixing plaids and gingham? Don’t mind if I do.

Adding spiral stamens really bulks up a flower arrangement and loopy string bows fills it in.

More flowers is always the right answer.

I’ve added a die cut banner with metal clip for the front of this card and finished the inside with coordinating paper patterns.

Please enjoy this video tutorial on how I created this card….

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album with Authentique

Standard

Well hello there Peeps and happy Llama Day! Hahah . I’m sharing a super sweet mini album I created with Alpine by Authentiqe and let me tell you how much I love this collection!!! Llamas and plaid. What’s not to love?

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

Awwwww look at that sweet llama.  The image is the inspiration for this album. It’s layered up with the patterned papers, die cuts, flowers, ribbon, twine, chipboard, sequins, pearls, and fun winter themed charms.

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 02

The images here are the cut aparts and they are so fun. I wanted to keep the whole image and still have room for pictures and journaling so I added them as tip-ins.

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 03

Once the tip-ins are folded out you can see the first pages also have pockets with large tags.

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 04

These pages also have pockets but they’re on the sides. More tags to pull out created with the companion patters. I wanted to use this sledding image here but it was too wide. The solution  was to clip it into 2 sections then add it as two pieces. I love how it turned out!

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 011

It’s so much fun to create interactive pages. These have twist tie closures. You can see here now that we’re in the middle pages that I’ve added eyelets to the spine. Not only does this give me a place to tie on the charms….but it helps the book pages to be nicely  secured.

Once the flaps are open it shows the complimentary patterns inside. What a great place for pictures and journaling.

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 07

I just can’t get enough of these fun images so I used them to create pockets for more pull out tags. The smaller matted sections would be a great place to add memories.

 

The last set of pages have fun little flaps secured with clips. Simply flip the flap to reveal more area to scrapbook in.

Lining them with coordinating papers makes them extra fun.

Larger tags are tucked into the pockets and also fold up so you can add even more pictures.

Please enjoy this video flip through I’ve prepared for this super sweet mini album….

Thinking of You Greeting Card

Standard

Happy first of the month Peeps. You know what that means. The all new Ribbon Club Assortment comes out today hooray!!!!!

I’m so happy to see this bright fresh combination because I’m getting in the mood for Spring and these are just perfect!

 

I’m using the gorgeous purple from the collection to accent this card.

It coordinates so perfectly with the flowers.

The Burlap String in violet adds a lovely texture to this arrangement.

I’ve added some foliage die cut from crisp white paper to lighten up the flower collection.

Altered chipboard and sequins adds loads of depth and dimension.

Last but not least some purpley Prills for the final accent.

Valentine Pocket with Tag / Video Tutorial

Standard

Happy Thursday Peeps!  It’s officially February now so it’s okay that I’m a little crazy about Valentines.  Like I would have my entire house draped in hearts and flowers and treats everywhere. Sadly I live in the house of boys so they would not appreciate balloons and confetti everywhere right?

I can however create pockets and fill them with sweet little tags…..
