Advent Calendar with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! I’m super sorry about this post going up so late. I planned to work on it last night so it could go live this morning……but we were out shoveling very late  and I was too tired to edit the video we prepared for this project.

I am really excited though to share this project. I created an advent calendar for my Dear Hubby. He loves really good beer so he will be getting one for each day of the 12 days of Christmas as a special reward just for him.

Advent Calendar Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using Echo Park papers with a fun retro vintage vibe.

Tiny envelopes create the pockets to tuck in the bingo cards with numbers on the back.

Fussy cut stickers are festive accents. This pocket even has twine wrapped around.

Advent Calendar Polly's Paper Studio 04

Loads of altered chipboard for dimension. Sequins are a fun detail to add and looks a bit like snowflakes.

Advent Calendar Polly's Paper Studio 05

I’ve added glitter to a few of the sentiment stickers and bling to the chipboard. You can never have enough bling…especially at Christmas.

Last but not least jingle bells, buttons, ribbon trims, and a wooden clothespin.

 

Please enjoy this video we’ve prepared on how I created the base for this advent calendar….

Joy to the World Greeting Card and Blog Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Standard

Hey there everyone and welcome to another fun hop with the peeps at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

blog hop

We’re creating project with the December Ribbon Club Assortment Back to Basics.a2f9d-back2bto2bbasics2bdecember2bribbon2bclub2bassortment

I think it’s very classic and sophisticated.

You should be joining me from Gloria. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

I created a card that’s very stylish and even almost modern.

Joy to the World Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I am not afraid to use dark colors on Christmas cards and I think this palate is very updated and mature.

Joy to the World Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 3

Of course I’m still including pretty dimensional flowers like these magnolias. I’ve given them a bit of a face lift but switching out the stamens and adding a bit of faux snow on the petals.

Joy to the World Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 4

I’ve layered a black doily under the arrangement to showcase the altered chipboard and patterned papers.

Joy to the World Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 5

This bow is really quite fabulous topped with jingle bells and tiny brush trees.

Last but not least I’ve added a fair few vintage buttons. Just because it’s modern inspired doesn’t mean it cant have some classic details right?

Okay the next stop in the hop is Cheryl.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts~ Deco Stars, Flourished Frames.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Oh my goodness Peeps we’re in the two week countdown to Christmas. How is that even possible? It seemed like it was never gonna get here and now it will be so soon.

I’m sharing a card today that is very nature inspired and loaded with holiday detail.

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

The cardinal image was on a sticker sheet that was on my desk for so long and although I attempted to put it away several times….I just loved that little bird so much I had to create something with it.

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve paired it with Echo Park papers in very vintagy patterns.

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

A garden of flowers is required for nature themed projects. Gorgeous ribbon trims fill out this arrangement,

There’s a bit of faux snow along with pearly headed stick pins.

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

To give the chipboard a more organic feel I altered it with a mottled finish and added crackling and faux snow,

December Postcard Tag Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Graphic 45 will always be a go to for holiday patterns and images….and plaid….yes…more plaid.

December Postcard Tag Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

Stacking images from the cut apart sheets from Children’s Hour helps to build a nice focal point.

December Postcard Tag Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

A garden full of holiday inspired flowers mixed with pretty berries, and glitter accents…and of course ribbon…in plaid lol.

December Postcard Tag Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

Chipboard corners here create a bit of a frame and since they are painted in crisp white they don’t overpower the patterned papers.

December Postcard Tag Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Tiny festive clip and seasonal charms are the perfect finishing touch!

Believe Christmas Greeting Card

Standard

Hello everyone! I’ve been a busy little bee creating loads of Christmas projects and I’ve fallen into a Victorian groove lately. Or at least this is my version of it. I think it’s the scripty font on sentiment die cut and the vintagy Santa.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This combination of paper patterns reminds me of wall paper in a lovely old house in England. Not that I’ve ever been. Maybe someday. Travel goals.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

The chipboard window is finished to look very antique and has faux snow in the panes to look like a frosty Christmas scene.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Holiday die cuts are layered here with spacers for depth and some have more of the “snow.”

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

A tiny number tag is clipped on to accent the window. All of the elements here are layered over a pretty die cut doily in crisp white.

Believe Frosty Window Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Last but not least sparkly jingle bells, ribbon, and twine.

I mean if this doesn’t look festive…..well then I don’t know what does! This paper is super Christmasy.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I am a little bit obsessed with creating flowers and to make these coordinate with the holiday theme I added Prills and faux snow.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Can we just talk about these snowflakes???? I just got some shabby embossing powder with tiny gold flakes in it and I think it puts these chippies over the top.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

Adding sequins here cuz that’s what I do lol.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

More flowers and die cut leaves. Tucking in a little loopy twine bow really fills in the arrangement.

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 06

Opening the first fold. Wouldn’t it be fun to add a picture here….or maybe a gift cad????

Peace and Joy Bi-Fold Christmas Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 07
