Sun Kissed Mini (mega) Album with Graphic 45

Standard

Hello there friends and fellow crafters and happy Tuesday to you : ) I’m sharing a mini album I created with Graphic 45 Sun Kissed collection and by mini I really mean mega because this scrapbook is super chunky.  I deconstructed a Square Tags and Pockets album then reassembled it as a Midori style with inserts.

I did say chunky.  This mini is the thickest scrapbook I have ever created! Of course I added loads of charms to the spine after stringing it up and topped them off with pretty bows and vintage button.

This collection has gorgeous patterns so I layered them up and added altered chipboard, flowers, twine, netting, sequins, and Prills.

Each of the 4 inserts have a fully embellished cover. Spacers between the layers really adds depth.

The insides have large pages for bigger pictures.

Gorgeous beachy themed chippies are the perfect accent.

The pockets inside have tags with coordinating images and plenty of room to add journaling.

This cover has additional die cuts like the little banner and doily which really fill in the arrangement nicely.

Since the entire collection goes together so perfectly I was able to mix and match the patterns to create similar but different combinations for the inside pages.

I left some of the chipboard in it’s natural color since it coordinates so well with the kraft covers!

I really super love the nature inspired images and patterns so perfect for vacation pictures.

Lucky Irish Lass Greetings

Standard

Hello friends and fellow crafters! I’m wishing you the luck of the Irish today with this fun and festive greeting card.

 

I just love having holiday themed chippies from GSL to create with because it allows me to scrap my stash and create great cards and decor.

This larger frame is just perfect for big cards like this one…it really fills in the space generously.

I’ve substituted 4 leaf clovers for leaves in the flower arrangement and layered them up with twine and seasonal embellishments.

Speaking of luck….an upturned horseshoe will catch all the luck and good tidings : )

I think this card would make a great addition to holiday decor displayed with fun and festive seasonal items : )

I used my favorite embossing powders to finish the chippies before I added them to this card. A few coats of Stickles are added for  super glittery and shiny four leaf clovers : )

Standard

Hello there and happy Saturday! Hope you are all well in this fin February morning : )  I’m dropping in to share  a lovely country chic inspired greeting card.

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Anytime I can bring together a wood grain with a floral and a doily…. I am so there.

Also this is a really sweet color combination. Has me thinking Spring….which considering how much snow we still have left outside is a long way away.

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

I pulled these flowers to add after being inspired by the background floral pattern.

There’s a companion pattern tucked under this rolled section on the top corner. It adds a lot of dimension.  I hung a few sweet metal charms from a vintagy button so this card could have a little bling.

You Are So Wonderful Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

More flowers here with die cut foliage layered underneath. Stickles added to the die cuts is a great way to add subtle detail.

The lovely sentiment is stacked over a doily image and additional paper layers. Actual vintage buttons are a last but not least embellishment on this old fashioned inspired card.

A Moment in Time Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Standard

Hey there and happy Wednesday! Ginny here to share a Birthday card with gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 

Mixing plaids and gingham? Don’t mind if I do.

Adding spiral stamens really bulks up a flower arrangement and loopy string bows fills it in.

More flowers is always the right answer.

I’ve added a die cut banner with metal clip for the front of this card and finished the inside with coordinating paper patterns.

Please enjoy this video tutorial on how I created this card….

Happy Camper Greeting Card Simple Stories

Standard

Hey there and happy Tuesday! I’ve got a fun project share today using the Cabin Fever collection from Simple Stories. Many of you  know that we have a vintage 1966 Banner camper that we remodeled with all the fun retro accents like a checkered floor and chrome and aqua color scheme.  We decided this year to get a larger camper  to be more comfortable on our family adventures. This is happy and sad because I really did love our little camper but the new one has a lovely kitchen and fireplace and and a crafting area.

Happy Camper Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This card makes me all kinds of happy. It has a camper and plaid and wood grain. What could be more funner than that?

Happy Camper Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 02

I’ve never seen a camper in real life that was plaid on the bottom….but now that I see it in this cute cut apart….I think they should make them for reals.

Happy Camper Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Keeping with the retro color scheme I chose flowers in aqua and white. There’s a little loopy bow and twine tucked in to fill in this arrangement.

Happy Camper Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 04

The banner shape is cut from the journal card that had a reservation form and is layered over a second card that I used to fussy cut an image for another project…..want not waste not. I added a little clip detail here as well.

Happy Camper Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 05

What else but vintage buttons would work for a retro camper card? The die cut doily helps to break up the dark colors and make the camper image the focal point.

Aqua colored sequins are the finishing touch.  Spacers between the layers add loads of depth to this card.
