Hey there all my holiday Peeps! Ready for another Christmas card? Me tooooooo!!!!
Graphic 45 will always be a go to for holiday patterns and images….and plaid….yes…more plaid.
Stacking images from the cut apart sheets from Children’s Hour helps to build a nice focal point.
A garden full of holiday inspired flowers mixed with pretty berries, and glitter accents…and of course ribbon…in plaid lol.
Chipboard corners here create a bit of a frame and since they are painted in crisp white they don’t overpower the patterned papers.
Tiny festive clip and seasonal charms are the perfect finishing touch!

Hello there everyone! I’m sharing a tag today that I created with Graphic 45’s St. Nicholas Christmas Collection.
This is one of my all time favorite Christmas papers.
I’m paring it with loads of lovely dimensional flowers.
And altered chipboard pieces.
Ribbons and twine that coordinate perfectly.
Of course the back is finished with patterned paper to match the front.
Spacers between the layers for depth and dimension.
Please enjoy this video tutorial we have prepared for you on how I created this tag…..

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a very fun Halloween decor wall hanging.
I’ve layered altered chipboard with patterned papers with a vintage feel.
There’s a nice selection of coordinating flowers and glittery embellies.
I do love adding a giant spider and vintage buttons to my Halloweeny projects.

Well hey there! I’m just dropping in today to let you know that I have gone a bit crazy this week creating loads of Halloween projects and I just can’t wait to share them. I’m kicking off with this very vintagy inspired card. The thing I like best about holiday cards is that you can add them to your seasonal decor tucked into a vintagy arrangement or displayed on a shelf.
Now friends between you and me…I just love that green and purple have joined the line up for color palate for Halloween. I mean I will always use orange and black but the new additions really freshen things up don’t ya think?
Why not add a multi-layer bow? I’ve got complimentary patterns here and I think it looks awesome.
This rosette really add a lot of dimension as well balances out the large bow.
Yep…I did put all the flowers on!!!! This is a nice selection of sizes and textures. The more the merrier : )
Giant glitter spider? Don’t mind if I do! The inside of the card is finished in the coordinating paper patters.
A sprinkling of Prills in a vintagy orange accents the frame and matches the glitter floral accents perfectly!

Hello there paper peeps! Just dropping in with a frightfully delightful greeting card I created with the new September Ribbon Club Halloween Assortment.
Isn’t it just fabulous? A great mix of traditional Halloween colors and patterns punched up with some fresh and vibrant new additions to the holiday theme.
I created a very fun and festive card….
Isn’t it just too much???? I love me some layers!
I know this doesn’t quite take the record for the most paper layers I’ve added to a card…but it’s close.
The juxtaposition of the living and the dead with all these glorious flowers arranged on a skull in a cloche is just creepy in a beautiful way.
I’ve got some altered chippies here and a double layer bow.
A few prills and twine finish off this card with great detail.

Well Helllloooooo there Peeps! It’s my day to share the project I created for the Petaloo~Creative Embellishments Blog Hop. My inspiration is a proper English tea complete with tea pot, gorgeous flowers and altered chippies.
A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging
I chose some of my favorite flowers from Petaloo then altered the chippies to coordinate.
I gave the Ferns a base coat of white paint the dabbed on a few green inks to get mottled effect. They really help to extend and anchor the flower arrangement.
There are smaller flourishes on top of the wreath that are finished simply with flat white acrylic paint.
I wanted this wreath to look a bit like a grapevine with foliage so I painted the circle in brown and the leaves in various colors of green. This creates a nice frame for the tea pot.
I incorporated many shades of blues in the flower selection along with berries and a bit of burlap for texture.
