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.

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.

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.

Vintage Easter Projects and Creativity Kit 2016


Hey there Peeps! I’ve got some holiday lovelies to share. I was working with the new Vintage Easter Creativity Kit 2016 and layering all the yummy papers and images with my usual line up of flowers and frames and all kinds of seasonal embellies.  I usually post all 8 of the projects for the kit at once……but then I was all gah..that’s too much for one post. So here are the first 4. There will be loads more since I’ve only barely gotten into the supplies.

Children’s Hour Winter Trunk with Tags


Happy Saturday Paper Peeps! Having a super quiet morning here at the old house. The boys have gone camping and it’s just me and the kitty cats. We’ve slept in a bit (6am) and enjoyed a lovely french roast and watched some art journaling videos.  I’m taking a break from my break to share a project created for Graphic 45 with the new Children’s hour…I have it on so many projects I think I better order more because it’s so fabulous I want to use it for everything! Winter Trunk with Tags.

Childrens Hour Winter Trunk Grpahic 45 7

I’m always looking for a way to brighten the winter blues that come after the holidays are over and I think this little trunk filled with tags fits the bill.  I’ve added loads of layers of the patterned papers with gorgeous flowers and a sweet chipboard sentiment. Inside the box I’ve added dividers to hold up the journaling tags. They would be a great way to display pictures of outdoor winter fun…assuming you think it’s fun outside in the winter lol. There is faux-snow created with embossing powders…which was well worth the mess on the table and chair and me and the cat and the floor.  Winter Trunk with Tags
