Irish Charm Wall Hanging Holiday Decor


Happy Saturday Peeps!  We’re looking forward to an almost springlike day here in Michigan and I’m so happy for a bit of a warm up. I’m dropping in to share a sweet wall hanging I created for St Patrick’s Day with an image from the new Irish Charm Tags Digital Collage Sheet.


This charming Irish lass is perfect for layering with patterned papers, and lots of embellies.


There’s a glittery shamrock here with gorgeous flowers in shades of green. I tucked in some berry picks and twine to fill in a generous arrangement.


Loopy bows tied of chevron striped twill are topped off with bows of twine and vintage buttons. There is also a length of the ribbon to display on a peg or hook.


Chipboard altered with embossing powder and heat set creates a frame for the tag. I used spacers between the layers for depth.  I’ve got a fabby new thin striped washi tape that was perfect to add to the side of the tag  along with the enamel number plate and coordinating pearly accents.


I used a large die to cut the background with a border of  Celtic knots.  There are layers of 100 lb cardstock and printed scrapbook paper on the back for a finished look and for sturdiness.

Retro Easter Wall Hanging


Hey there Peeps!  I was waiting impatiently for a delivery yesterday so to make the time go a bit faster I created a new Easter Collage sheet full of sweet retro inspired images on striped tags. I was so smitten with it I had to print one out right away and create a project.

Retro Easter Wall Hanging


It’s pretty adorable if I do say so myself.  I used a burlap banner shape from Canvas Corp for the background and layered on a wood grain pattern and a bright and cheerful yellow stripe to coordinate with the printed tag.


A garden of white and yellow flowers layered over cheese cloth and a die cut banner.


Sweet bunny tag printed and raised with spacers. This allows space for an eyelet and twine and a little yellow clip.  There’s a polka dot die cut with actual vintage buttons and additional tiny blooms.


This wall hanging is easy to display on the tinsel hanger topped off with chevron ribbon and twine bows with more buttons.


I just love finishing off the tag with some carefully placed Stickles to accent the details.

The Easter Tags Retro Buttercream Stripe Collage sheet has 8 tags each with a sweet Easter themed image so you can create a stack of cards, add them to scrapboook layouts or whip up a lovely banner to add to your favorite seasonal decor.

Vintage Love Valentine Tag


Happy Wednesday Paper Peeps!  It’s just been terrible cold here in Michigan so I’ve hunkered down in the shop to keep warm and to create loads of Valentiny projects.


I’m totally into the black and pink color combination this year along with vintage images and trims from my favorite Ribbon place : )

Pretty flowers and pearly accents just feel so right on vintage projects….and Valentine ones too!

This Rose Petal Seam Binding is so lovely and makes the perfect bow along with some Natural Burlap String.

I don’t even know where to begin to tell you how happy this combination of stripes and polka dots makes me. It super girly combined with the florals and having spacers between the layers keeps the patterns from being too busy.

Spooky Halloween Wall Hanging Home Decor


Well hello there Paper Peeps!  I’ve been working on some handcrafted flowers this week and if I do say so myself….they turned out kinda fabby!  I used a few on this Halloween wall hanging….which is also fabby! Spooky Halloween Wall Hanging


For the base I started with a Graphic 45 Policy envelope and stuffed it with 110 lb cardstock so it would be extra sturdy then layered on the fun vintage images and paper patterns.


It can hang on the generous loop of coordinating polka dot ribbon finished off with a double layer of poofy bow.


Large rose and small gardenias are colored in orange and accented with Stickles. I’ve added black leaves and smaller black flowers to fill in along with some sparkly flower pics.


Such a serious looking raven. You’d think wearing a poofy neck ruffle and hat would cheer him up lol.


Some flourishes cut from back cardstock layered over the checkerboard pattern and spiderweb…..all on spacers for added depth. Spooky Halloween Wall Hanging

Liberty Village with Petaloo and Canvas Corp


Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a very festive and fun holiday décor creation using the fabulous DIY Flowers and Canvas Corp patterned papers.  I love to make projects in red, white, and blue since they can be displayed for all the summer holidays!!!

Liberty Village 1I’m calling this Liberty Village. A row of tiny houses all decked out in patriotic colors and fun trims.  It’ll be a great addition to my seasonal décor. My hubby is born on the 4th of July so we really go all in for this great holiday! And we get cake…so that’s a win win : )Liberty Village 2These little houses are only about 3 inches square ( before the roof.)  I was able to pack a lot of detail in a small space.Liberty Village 3All lined up they are the perfect size for a shelf. From this angle you can see how the tiny chimneys fit perfectly on the roof peak. I had to do math shudder.Liberty Village 4For this center house I added a few glittery stars on spingy wires nestled into the kraft packaging in the chimney. To finish the tops of the chimneys I added a small length of white lace wrapped around and stapled in place with a tiny staple. Coordinating lace on the bottom of the house is layered over burlap trim. Liberty Village 5This roof peak is all decked out with the DIY Flowers, Red Jeweled Flowers,  glittery branches and ribbon trim.  I sprayed the DIY Flowers with Fireworks Spray to match the chevron stripe in the paper. Tinsel trim on the underside of the roof makes it extra festive

Liberty Village 6Surprise!!! The roofs come off.  From this angle you can see I’ve tucked in another star clipped in with an itty bitty red clothespin.

Liberty Village 7Simply untie the red cord and the little house opens right up to reveal a vintagy image and 3 picture mats for displaying favorite summer pictures.Liberty Village 8I just love how the shades of red, white, and blue are all vintagy and not super bright.Liberty Village 9Each little house has a different image….but the same picture mats.Liberty Village 10

It will be fun to fill up these little houses with our pictures and memories. And we can enjoy them year after year when we decorate for the holiday.

I worked on these great patriotic creations this week using our new Patriotic Creativity Kit 2016.

Valentine Card with Graphic 45’s Children’s Hour with Snapguide Tutorial


Oh how I love a card about love!  The fabulous teeny tiny patterns in the Children’s Hour 6×6 Patterns and Solids Pad are just right for layering so I matted them in a dark chocolate brown and topped them with sweet vintage images from the February Collective page then embellished them with pretty fussy cut and dimensional flowers. There’s also ribbon trim and charming love buttons : ) I am swooning over this very Valentiny card.
