Hey Peeps I’m dropping in to share a sweet little shadow box that I created with charming little bird houses and loads of spring flowers.
Spring Bird House Shadow Box
This stand alone shadow box would look just perfect with an Easter bunny but can be displayed all season long as it’s not too ” Eastery”.
This little chipboard shadow box is deep enough to adhere the birdhouses inside at different depths for a nice dimensional look. I’ve painted it in a gorgeous spring green to show off the flourishes and birdhouses.
I’ve selected blooms in bright cheerful colors and created a nice balance by adding some to the top and bottom of the shadowbox.
I’ve chosen a nice selection of pinks, green and white flowers and tucked in some speckled eggs. The birdhouse in the back also has a sweet little nest to welcome birds and make them feel at home.
To add a bit of softness to the hard edge of the roof line I incorporated some cheesecloth. It also helps to fill in the arrangement.
Okay that’s all for me. Whishing you all a happy and productive day.

Hello there Paper Peeps! I’m sharing a tag that I created to be an Easter gift…..without it being “too Eastery” so it can be displayed throughout the year and not taken down when the season is over.
I choose some pretty floral patterned paper and paired it with a coordinating plaid to be the background.
Gorgeous trims and flowers to accent the focal image.
I chose to put the larger bow on the bottom but I still wanted to dress up the top of the tag and add some twine to display on a hook. Adding altered chipboard to the layers adds a lot of texture.
Last but not least a simple sentiment popped up on foam spacers.

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share some very vintagy inspired tags with cameos . I’ve never actually owned a cameo…..but now I think I may need to change that as these are so my style!!!
These chippies were a snap to alter so I went ahead and made several tags.
I’ve layered the Cameos onto some chippies that reminded me of doilies for an even more vintagy look.
I pulled out all the girly embellies like lace and ribbons to make these tags even more feminine.

Well hello there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share some holiday décor that’s not specifically Easter but inspired by Spring so it can be displayed and enjoyed all season long.
I created 4 while I had the supplies out. Each has a coordinating Post Card Nest Collage image so they are similar…..but just slightly different.
I started with a base of burlap adhered to sturdy chipboard then layered on all the paper pretties!
I love these flowers in shades of white and green. So perfect for spring.
There are more flowers tucked under the paper layers for added depth. Chipboard painted in crisp white breaks up the busy paper patterns and adds texture.
I’ve added pretty coordinating ribbons, a wire hanger, wooden clothespin, seasonal brad, and washi tape to finish off these charming and just a little bit vintagy wall hangings.

Well hello there Peeps! I had myself a good ol time working on this card getting totally overboard with the chippies and embellies. Sometime that little voice inside my hais says “more more more” I have tried to reign that voice in…but not today!

Hey there Peeps! I’m rustling up some home décor today for my project inspired by my love of bees. Our neighbor is a beekeeper so we get to enjoy lots of them in our flowering trees. Also my very good friend is also a beekeeper and provides us with gorgeous fresh honey : )
Here’s how I prepared the chippies…
All these fabby elements will be wiped with a cloth to prepare them for finishing.
Some of the pieces have been finished in patterned papers. Some have been inked black and some have been heat embossed.
A variety of embossing was done in metallic shades and the bee was just colored with a Spectrum Noir marker.

Hey there Peeps! So you know how when you have elements of a project come together just right? Don’t you love when that happens? When I created this project I was inspired by the clock chipboard embellishment. I checked out some digis from my shop and low and behold the clock image with the gorgeous vintage rose fit perfectly. I mean it was like meant to be!!!
With the chipboard and image picked out I gathered flowers with the same peachy pink tones and fairly neutral background papers.
I’ve just been working on a major reorganization of my shop and I just cleaned up all the ribbons so I knew right away that I had this shade.
Since the layout turned out to be a bit bottoms heavy I added some metal keys, another flower and leaf, and twine to anchor it with a vintage button.
