Easter Creativity Kits and Projects

Standard

Well hello there friends and happy Sunday to you all. It’s a happy Sunday for me for sure because it’s also kit day!!!! Hooray. My Peeps have asked for Easter Creativity Kits and who am I to refuse?   You know the drill…..I get a kit too to play with and I share my projects so you can see all the fabby things I’ve created. I’m mixing it up a little and adding a banner and a slim mini album along with cards and a tag. I’ve added the usual fun and festive patterned papers and added holiday embellies like clips, doilies, ribbon and twine yards, flowers and tinsel trim.  Oh and a fabby bling strip!

Vintage Valentine Wall Hanging with Video

Standard

Hello there friends! Happy Sunday to all of you. I’m so thrilled to say now that it’s officially February I can throw myself into Valentine projects with reckless abandon.

For today’s project I created a very vintagy inspired wall hanging…..

 

Isn’t it just loverly? So many layers!!!!!!

I’ve layered the chipboard.
I’ve even layered the bows.
And topped it all off with layered flowers.
But not even I am expert enough to layer pearls : (

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…..

Merry Cardinal Bingo Christmas Greeting Card

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.

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

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

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.

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
