I’ve got a garden full of gorgeous Petaloo flowers layered over patterned papers.

I’ve got a lot of pattern going on here but solid borders between the layers keeps everything from being jumbled up.

These flowers have such fun bright colors and match the paper perfectly. This arrangement has a sweet bow in a chevron printed twill and some loopy twine bows to work as filler.

The smaller arrangement on top has a lovely metal charm with an inspirational message.

Okay that’s all for my project. On a very personal note. I’d like to express how much I have treasured my time working for the Petaloo Brand. Cheryl has been such an inspiration for me to create with the amazing flowers and embellishments . Her support for the team and all of her hard work behind the scenes to make us shine will never be forgotten. I consider her a wonderful team leader and friend. Speaking of wonderful team…..I couldn’t ask for a better group of designers to work with. Not only are they top notch in their field…but they are really sweet and funny and generous and I am lucky to know them. With the ending of the Petaloo blog we’ll all be on to different things…but we will still be together in spirit. And last but not least a big thank you to all of you who supported our team by enjoying the blog and commenting and sharing your appreciation for our creations. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Pockets w/ Tags Petaloo~Maja Design Spotlight

Standard

Hey there Petaloo Peeps! So very excited to share the projects I created for the Petaloo ~ Maja Design product spotlight.

 

I decided to create favors since every party is more funner when you get to take a treat home. These pockets have tags but there’s still plenty of room to tuck in a little gifty.

 

Party Favor Pockets Petaloo Maja Design Product Spotlight

These pockets are created with the gorgeous patterned papers from Maja Design.

Pink Pocket

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using the same basic layout for all of the pockets and layering them on burlap for a consistent look. The natural fiber adds a nice texture as well.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 02

A tiny crocheted doily is a great shabby chic accent and creates a nice base to layer on the beautiful flowers.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 03

I’ve lined the pockets with a coordinating patterned paper so it will look just as nice without the tags and treats.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 04

Tags are a great place to add a picture or some journaling on the back. Or maybe even affix a gift card?

Purple Pocket

Stitching around the pockets is a nice subtle detail and adds structural stability to the pocket so you can fill it up without worrying about it coming apart.

Purple Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve tucked in some pearly picks coordinating ribbon to enhance the flowers.

Vintage buttons are added to the top of the pockets.

Adding a matching bow and flower to the top of the tag helps to bring the balance to the top of the pocket.

Blue Pocket

Wings and Heart Greeting Card with Tutorial

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a very vintagy inspired greeting card with loads of chippies and flowers , burlap and lace.

 

Isn’t this the sweetest? Anything with hearts and wings is going to be great, right?

There’s a lot going on here….but using the dark navy borders really helps to break up the busy patterns.

I think the burlap and lace adds so much texture and gives a really homespun country appeal.

Gorgeous flowers and pearly accents.

The cabochon in the center has flowers in the exact same shades and is the perfect focal point.

1.  I wiped down the chippies and poked out the little bits to prepare them for finishing. 2. I applied a flat white embossing powder to the wings and heat set it then allowed it to cool. Focusing on the wingtips I added a layer of white and gold speckled embossing powder and set that also. A final layer of glitter snow to the very edges for added texture. 3. While the glitter snow was still wet I sprinkled on some Prills. 4. Text paper was applied to the heart and the edges sanded down with a small file. The edges are aged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The frame was easily altered with navy embossing powder and heat set.

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 01

How Do You Expect Me To Remember Your Birthday Greeting Card 04
