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 : )

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….

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album with Authentique

Standard

Well hello there Peeps and happy Llama Day! Hahah . I’m sharing a super sweet mini album I created with Alpine by Authentiqe and let me tell you how much I love this collection!!! Llamas and plaid. What’s not to love?

You Warm My Heart Llama Mini Album Polly's Paper Studio 01

Awwwww look at that sweet llama.  The image is the inspiration for this album. It’s layered up with the patterned papers, die cuts, flowers, ribbon, twine, chipboard, sequins, pearls, and fun winter themed charms.

The images here are the cut aparts and they are so fun. I wanted to keep the whole image and still have room for pictures and journaling so I added them as tip-ins.

Once the tip-ins are folded out you can see the first pages also have pockets with large tags.

These pages also have pockets but they’re on the sides. More tags to pull out created with the companion patters. I wanted to use this sledding image here but it was too wide. The solution  was to clip it into 2 sections then add it as two pieces. I love how it turned out!

It’s so much fun to create interactive pages. These have twist tie closures. You can see here now that we’re in the middle pages that I’ve added eyelets to the spine. Not only does this give me a place to tie on the charms….but it helps the book pages to be nicely  secured.

Once the flaps are open it shows the complimentary patterns inside. What a great place for pictures and journaling.

I just can’t get enough of these fun images so I used them to create pockets for more pull out tags. The smaller matted sections would be a great place to add memories.

 

The last set of pages have fun little flaps secured with clips. Simply flip the flap to reveal more area to scrapbook in.

Lining them with coordinating papers makes them extra fun.

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Back again today to share the results of my crafty day of Valentine card making.  I used the ephemera from the Simple Stories Romance Collection along with a few bits and bobs from my stash. I got all the paper pretties out and started The Lord of the Rings Audio Book to listen to and before you know it…..I had a big ol pile of holiday cards! Yes I know I’m  geek….but in my defense I do live in a house of all boys so the entertainment selections are not very girlie lol.

You are Amazing Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there  Peeps! Ginny here to share a card I created with some of my fave chippies from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  I mean… to be fair I love all the frames. But sometimes just the right  frame is  the perfect addition to a project.

I feel like this card is so sweet and whimsical with the fairy and butterfly.

The chipboard layered in creates so much depth and texture.

I’ve added a few additional elements like vintage buttons and vintagy metal keys.

Spacers between the layers to build up the scene and keep it from looking busy.

Okay..maybe it’s a little busy…but in a totally fabulous way!

A proper fairy card needs loads of flowers and I think we have the perfect amount! I’ve also tucked in some ribbon and twine to fill in this arrangement.

Picking just the right chippies….

Adding sparkle to the stars with antique gold embossing powder then adding heat to set the powder.

The frame is finished with pink embossing powder that has just a bit of gold flake in it. It was a bit too large so I snipped it in half to fit the card perfectly.
