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!
I created these projects with the kit , some cardstock, and bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box. You can check out this kit by hopping over to Polly’s on Etsy.
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…..
Isn’t this super retrolicious?????? This is the Forever My Always Collection from Pebbles.
Even without the tags it’s pretty dang cute. Anddddd there’s room in the pocket for treats!
Coordinating tags to fill the pocket. I love tags. Like a lot.
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.
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.
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.
To give the chipboard a more organic feel I altered it with a mottled finish and added crackling and faux snow,
Hooray hooray it’s kit time again. Oh how I love to create a kit. And I love even more taking a kit for myself to use to whip up some projects. This time it’s a Jolly Snowmen Deluxe Creativity Kit 2017. I’ve included fabulous retro images, holiday patterned papers, pre-tied bows and a sleigh full of extra fun embellies like tinsel trim, twine, jingle bells, silvery snowflakes, bling, die cut glitter stars, and sequins.
Here are the projects I created with the kit…..
You can check out the supplies and paper pretties included in the kit…..
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.
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.
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.”
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.
Last but not least sparkly jingle bells, ribbon, and twine.
Hello everyone and welcome back! I’m sharing a lovely nature inspired Christmas greeting card today that I created using the Winter Birds Christmas Tags printable from our shop. I really do love birds in winter….well all the time really. But there’s just something so sweet about a fragile little creature out in the elements and still being lovely.
I chose the patterned papers to coordinate with the tag. The dark red paid balances the holiday foliage pattern.
These super beautiful flowers are new to RRR and I can not even tell you how much I love them!!! I’ve made a small arrangement here with the blooms and altered chipboard and glittery accents.
The die cut wreath matches the one on the tag perfectly and creates a nice base for all the layers. Adding a bit of chunky twine and a simple tied bow of satin ribbon helps to balance the flowers and tucking in a doily helps to break up the busy patterns.
I am obsessed with actual vintage buttons and I always think they are well worth the work to scour antique shops to find them…like a vintagy treasure hunt.
All I needed to finish this card was a tiny sentiment and clip in holiday green.
We’ve prepared a process video for this card so you can see how it was created. I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.
Hey there everyone! By ( very) popular demand I’ve added another Retro Christmas 2017Deluxe Creativity Kit to the shop. The first one sold out pretty quickly and sadly there was not enough to go around. I’m more than happy to oblige. This kit has new images and patterned papers from the previous kit and loads of fun embellies like jingle bells, twine, snowflakes, red tinsel trim, and pearly accents.
