Christmas Friends Shaker Tag


Well helloooo there Paper Peeps. Ginny here with another installment of Christmas in July and this time I’m using a garden full of flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with trims of course.

This is just so cheerful and sweet. I stamped and colored those little images. I do love to color.

Did I mention this is a shaker tag? I’m slightly obsessed with them right now.  Inside are coordinating sequins and Shaved Ice. These little cuties were a bit lost on the busy background pattern so layered in a bit of a snowy border hill for them to stand on.


So. Many. Flowers. Isn’t the burlap trim a wonderful texture behind the snowflake printed satin?

I added a bit of tinsel trim for extra sparkle and included a twine loop to hang.

Shabby Chic Christmas Snow Angel


Hey there peeps! I can’t believes I’m this far into Christmas in July  and haven’t created a shabby chic card until now. Must be the heat lol. I’m about to remedy the situation now and share this oh so light and dreamy card with a snow angel.

Snow Angel Shabby Chic Christmas Greeting Card


I’m layering gray and white with the lightest blush pink to create  a creamy color palate.


This charming little snow angel is from the Winter Wishes collection from BoBunny. I’ve given her coat a nice layer of Sugar Glitter Paste so she looks like she’s out in the fresh snow.


These chippies were altered with mermaid tail embossing powder and heat set to look a bit like glass glitter.


Gorgeous flowers from Petaloo with a glittery finish to compliment the frosty effect.


Layering the tiny tree die cuts from the paper collection and topping them off with a nice sprinkling of pearls. This chipboard sentiment has a printed snowflake and a blingy accent.


Last but not least….I’ve dabbed a fair bit of the Sugar Glitter Paste on the edges of the papers and tucked in a sweet little bow of seam binding and loops of twine.

Pirate Graduation Card


Hey Peeps! We’re starting a new Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Okay. I’m just gonna say it. This may be the coolest graduation card ever. At the least it’s the coolest one I have ever made. This card was gifted to an awesome young man who is a friend of our youngest Son and a fellow Boy Scout. We are super proud of him. He has a very bright future I’m sure  : ) Well done Zachery!!!

Pirate Graduation Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

Did I mention it’s a shaker? And did I mention that I die cut and embossed those stars with a shiny silver finish? That’s how you an tell how much I like this young man.

I wanted the Pirate P to be inside the shaker…but I didn’t want it to get turned over or stuck in a carner so it’s secured in place with fishing line.

Card Trio for Christmas in July


Well hello there Peeps! I’m back to share more cards for Christmas in July. I know I know…I wanted to share everyday…….but it’s just been boiling hot here and I’ve not been in the mood to write posts. I have been creating the cards though so today I’ll be sharing 3 to help me get caught up a bit.

Baby it’s Cold Outside Greeting Card


Isn’t that cheeky of me? Posting an it’s cold out side when it’s actually super hot and humid?  Brown and blues are a very nontraditional color scheme…but I just love it. I think it’s warm and woodsy. I’ve added pretty ribbon and flowers and sequins and the fabulous gold striped washi tape.

December Ice Skates Greeting Card
