Retro Santa Inspired Creativity Projects


I’ve been working away on some fun little retro inspired Christmas cards this week using my new Creativity Kit. I just love the brighter colors and chipper and cheerful images. I came up with four awesome cards.



I added bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box with the kit to layer them up. The crepe fringe is a great way to add texture. I also Stickled and inked them quite a bit.

IMG_2423There’s loads of goodies in this kit…a full 30 pieces : ) The fabulous trims are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I think I’ll take another for myself and make a jazzy sassy little banner. Click the link to check out the details…Retro Santa Inspired Creativity Kit.

Some of the fun images here are from The Gaphic’s Fairy

I’m off now to enjoy some paper playin fun with Friend Brandy. I’m so glad she’s here to celebrate her birthday at the shop : ) Happy Birthday !!!!!

Chunky Vintage Halloween Album


 Hi there! It’s Ginny here sharing a fun and festive Vintage Inspired Mini Album I created in the shop this week for my class. The base of the book is paper bags…but folded to make fabulous pockets for tags and pictures. It also makes the album super sturdy and chunky! I even had to add extra large rings : )

The best part???? The wonderful coordinating trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon!


I added the Black Gingham, Satin Scallop Edge, and Diagonal Stripe to the rings. There are tons of other great choices of ribbons and trims for your Halloween projects in theHoliday section. You should hop on over and check em out. Also for my album cover, I added a stamped ticket, chunky rosette and a metal mailing tag rimmed black clock. The Witches Ball image is from Graphic’s Fairy.


The pages inside have pockets that hold tags.  It’s a little hard to tell in the picture…but the pumpkin images are raised on Foam Dots to make them dimensional. I used a funky striped straw as a pocket topper and added Tim Holtz clips as fun metal accents.


There’s another rosette as the topper to the tag in this pocket. I added tinsel trim to top this pocket for a little sparkle. There’s a fun banner at the top of the right side page to carry the orange over to this side of the book.  The little boy image is on foam dots for dimension.


 Another straw..this time in orange. I added a glittery spider web…just because I could and topped it off with another rosette. 

The girlies and I will have lot’s of fun creating these albums Tuesday in class. I will also have a limited amount of kits available in the Etsy shop.

Okay..that’s it for me. I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. : ) G

Requests for Card Kits


 Thanks to all the Peeps for  the lovely comments on my card classes. I’ve gotten some requests for kits to make these vintagey cards from some of you who can’t make it to the classes here in the shop. 

I can make up 4 of these kits and offer them in the etsy shop. I’ll include some easy peasy instructions and send emails with pics of the remaining cards to those who purchase the kits. All the pieces are precut…so they go together very nicely. Please email me at vnemchak@hotmail if you would like me to make you a reserved listing for the kit.

Update….Wow…what a response. Thanks to everyone who contacted me to order a card kit. I’ve set up your reserved listings in the Etsy shop…and sent you a link to your listing in your email.
