Winter Sled with RRR Trims and Time to Flourish

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share a really special new project that I created with beautiful trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the new Time to Flourish from Graphic 45.  The funny thing is..I usually pass up the unpainted wood section at the craft store…but I had a coupon lol….and I’m so happy I did because this project is now my favorite Christmas project that I’ve made!!

IMG_4473I used the lovely Ivory Rust and Gold Plaid Ribbon to create poofy bows then layered the  Ivory Burlap String and painted jingle bells.

IMG_4469I found a sweet little candle holder to display with the sled but I’ll take the candle out before I light it.

IMG_4470I layered on some coordinating blooms from Petaloo and some sparkly branches.

IMG_4471When in doubt….always use elebenty hundred layers with foam spacers so the detail really pops.

IMG_4472

Winter birds are some of my seasonal accents….and these  Time to Flourish papers from G45 are just gorgeous : ) I used the December sheet which has a coordinating sheet with the poinsettias and birds.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Traditional Styled Jolly Santa Banner

Standard

Have you ever found a trim that was just so right you had to have it???? Then create an entire project around it??? Yep me too lol.   For me it was this candy cane striped tinsel trim….swoon…loved it….had to have it!!!!! So it inspired me to create a super sweet traditionally styled Jolly Santa Banner.  For the Tuesday Chicks…..surprise….this is what we are making in class next week. You better be ready to work!!!!

IMG_2592IMG_2588IMG_2587IMG_2589IMG_2594I started with pretty paper patterns, added loads of Stickled vintage images, clothes pins, clips, bows, and the fabulous tinsel trim!!!! Thanks for the suggestion from Peep Bobbie for a traditional project : )  I really love how it turned out…..especially  how it looks hanging over the cream colored bead board of the bookcase at the end of the island in my kitchen.

There are a limited number of kits available for those of you want to create the banner but can’t make the class. Click the Etsy link to hop over to the listing.

I’ve used lovely ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon for these bows…Totally Twill in Red and Chevron Satin in Red and White. Some of the vintage images I’ve used are from The Graphic’s Fairy.

Vintage Christmas Tags

Standard

I spent some time this afternoon working on some sweet little tags I created with my new collage sheet….loads of Stickles, Inks and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

IMG_2476

After printing the images…I added lot’s of Stickles and inks then layered them on some larger tags I had in the stash. These bows are sa-weet.  I also added some little goodies to embellish them like flowers, buttons, and snowflake pins.

IMG_2483I’ve got a nice big pile left to embellish. I think these will make fabulous tags that can be on a gift…then taken off to hang on the tree to make a keepsake ornament. Or maybe to label a homemade treat? Or a banner????

Here is the sheet of images:

I’ve got two fabulous things to share today…one a surprise gift I got a few weeks ago from a super talented and super sweet new friend from Florida. And the other is a new freebie printable.

Jeanne Marie sent me this beautiful vintagy Halloween cone that she embellished and filled with goodies and treats : ) She is so generous I just had to share my gifty with everyone. Let me start out by saying…..cones are not so very easy to get pics of : /   So there are lot’s of pics so I can capture the details.

IMG_2451Here it is hanging from the hutch in my kitchen.

IMG_2453She added layered paper rosettes and fun fringy trims. Can you see all the inking she did on the metal cone? Fabulous!

Still haven’t got the in house IT dept to show me how to turn these into a jpeg…so for now you can just right click on it and save it to a file to print. For personal use only please….do not reproduce this image for items you intend to sell or add it to a digital collage sheet.  That would make me sad : (  many of the elements here are from Graphic’s Fairy.

Okay…that‘s it for me….I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative.
