Hey Petaloo Peeps! Ginny here to share a bright and cheerful card created to celebrate a graduation.
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.
I love the depth achieved with the large flowers. I’ve used spacers between the papers layers also and a pretty crisp white doily to complete this card.

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.
Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

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.
These pockets are created with the gorgeous patterned papers from Maja Design.
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.
A tiny crocheted doily is a great shabby chic accent and creates a nice base to layer on the beautiful flowers.
I’ve lined the pockets with a coordinating patterned paper so it will look just as nice without the tags and treats.
Tags are a great place to add a picture or some journaling on the back. Or maybe even affix a gift card?
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.
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.
All of the paper layers have been distressed and inked.
I’ve tucked in a generous band of die cut paper border to add detail to the pocket.
A layer of 110 lb cardstock is added to the back to give a little more sturdiness to the pocket.
Fussy cut images and clocks are adhered to the tags along with a bit of twine strung through.

Okay that’s all for me. I hope you enjoyed viewing these party favors as much as I enjoyed creating them. Remember to participate in the giveaway you’ll need to join us on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.
Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share a very vintagy inspired greeting card with loads of chippies and flowers , burlap and lace.
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.

Time for another fun challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon! This time the theme is Monochromatic and Ribbon or Trim. I created a very purply Birthday card and added layers of patterned papers, gorgeous ribbon .
This ribbon is Satin Swiss Dots on Grape and it’s too perfect!
I got into my stash of Graphic 45 for these purply papers. Matted with grape colored cardstock to tone down the busy patterns.
The card is finished inside with coordinating papers.
These lovely Scribble Frame Butterfly chippies were easy to alter with a Spectrum Noir pen and some Stickles. I added some Prills also to finish off this card.
Okay now it’s your turn to create a fabulous Monochromatic with Ribbon or Trim and link up with us at RRR to play along.
Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
Hey there peeps! I’m dropping in to share what I think is the funnest summer card I’ve ever created. I mean it’s got a smiling strawberry..what could be more fun than that?
These bright and cheerful colors just makes me so happy.
Polka dot and chevron striped ribbon trims are the perfect choice.
Inside the card is finished off with a coordinating stripe.
I turned a cut apart into a tag by clipping of the corners and adding a metal eyelet with twine. I’ve also tucked in a metal rimmed mailing tag and loads of yummy flowers.
Many spacers between the layers for a nice dimensional look. The die cut doily in the back helps to break up the busy patterns.
Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
