I wrapped the ribbon around the card base also and secured it on the back before addind all the layers. Find Joy Every Day All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 03

Instead of my usual button with twine I topped off this bow with additional flowers to balance the heavy arrangement at the bottom.Find Joy Every Day All Occasion Greeting Card Polly's Paper Studio 01

This sweet sentiment was nice and big so it really is the focal image for this card.

April Blog Hopping with RRR

Standard

Hey there! Time again for another fun hop at RRR.

10308279_717292838322738_8108547784177054821_nWe’re sharing the projects we created with the Aqua Ribbon Club Aqua and Coral Mix.

516b6-aqua2band2bcoral2bmixYou know I love these fresh bright colors! One of my favorite combinations : )

You should be coming to me from Gloria. If you’re just joining in you’ll want to head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to start at the beginning.

So I’m sharing many projects today as I’ve created a really great new Butterfly and Clocks Tags Digital Collage Sheet and once I printed it I was having so much fun I couldn’t stop. The great thing about this sheet besides the fact that it’s a Dollar Download Item is that you can create 3 finished tags with the sheet just as it is. Or if you’re like me…you can add extra emebllies to incorporate your own personal style.

Butterfly Clock Tags 1 Polly's Paper Studio

The first one on the left is created just by snipping out the images and assembling the layers.  I added some 110 lb cardstock to the back as well to make them more sturdy. Topped off with my RRR trim it’s gorgeous and ready to add to a gift or to label a baked treat. The one on the right has some mixed media supplies added to antique the images a bit and then was assembled with foam spacers between the layers.  More trims, a metal eyelet and lace kicks it up a notch.

Butterfly Clock Tags 2 Polly's Paper Studio

These tags have the same images but I’ve added chipboard, dimensional flowers, and metal embellies.

Butterfly Clock Tags 3 Polly's Paper Studio

I’ve taken the tags a bit further now and added one to a card base with simple cardstock and an embossed texture. I’ve wound the ribbons and lace around to create a coordinating background that shows off the focal tag as the centerpiece.  And last but not least…my favorite.  I dug in my stash just a bit to find some patterned papers that matched the butterfly and created a larger tag to adhere a die cut doily, the printed and snipped images, flowers and more of the beautiful RRR trims.

I could have kept going all day as there are so many great uses for tags.  And at only $1 for the download file  I’ll bet you’ll have a hard time stopping too!

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

Easter ~ Spring Tag

Standard

Hello there Paper Peeps! I’m sharing a tag that I created to be an Easter gift…..without it being “too Eastery” so it can be displayed throughout the year and not taken down when the season is over.

I choose some pretty floral patterned paper and paired it with a coordinating plaid to be the background.

Gorgeous trims and flowers to accent the focal image.

 

I chose to put the larger bow on the bottom but I still wanted to dress up the top of the tag and add some twine to display on a hook. Adding altered chipboard to the layers adds a lot of texture.

Last but not least a simple sentiment popped up on foam spacers.

A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging

Standard

Well Helllloooooo there Peeps!  It’s my day to share the project I created for the Petaloo~Creative Embellishments Blog Hop.  My inspiration is a proper English tea complete with tea pot, gorgeous flowers and altered chippies.

A Proper English Tea Wall Hanging

I chose some of my favorite flowers from Petaloo then altered the chippies to coordinate.

I gave the Ferns a base coat of white paint the dabbed on a few green inks to get mottled effect.  They really help to extend and anchor the flower arrangement.

There are smaller flourishes on top of the wreath that are finished simply with flat white acrylic paint.

I wanted this wreath to look a bit like a grapevine with foliage so I painted the circle in brown and the leaves in various colors of green.  This creates a nice frame for the tea pot.

I incorporated many shades of blues in the flower selection along with berries and a bit of burlap for texture.

Beautiful Clock All Occasion Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Peeps!  So you know how when you have elements of a project come together just right?  Don’t you love when that happens?  When I created this project I was inspired by the clock chipboard embellishment. I checked out some digis from my shop and low and behold the clock image with the gorgeous vintage rose fit perfectly. I mean it was like meant to be!!!

With the chipboard and image picked out I gathered flowers with the same peachy pink tones and fairly neutral background papers.

I’ve just been working on a major reorganization of my shop and I just cleaned up all the ribbons so I knew right away that I had this shade.

Since the layout turned out to be a bit bottoms heavy I added some metal keys, another flower and leaf, and twine to anchor it with a vintage button.

Additional chippies add texture as well as embossing the center section.

Shabby Chic Spring & Easter Decor

Standard

Happy Tuesday Peeps! I’m always so cheered up to see a bit of spring after a long cold winter. I’m not a gardener…..but we live in the country and I do enjoy seeing the farmers tilling up their fields and the animals spending more time out of their barns. My projects for today have springy flowers and little sweet bunnies.

I’m using the Vintage Easter Bunny Ticket Digital Collage Sheet from my shop for the inspiration. These are available for instant download so you can create some Easter themed décor too!

Spring Wall Hangings Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio

I used 2 bunny tag images from the same collage sheet and created a wall hanging and tag.

Because I was hoping for a country chic look I used the stitched burlap trim to create poofy bows and used sturdy wire to create a hanger.

The paper has a wood grain pattern and it’s used to create a base as well as a tiny envelope to tuck the tag into.

Loads of flowers mixed in with lace, die cut doilies, and altered chipboard.

Ribbon trim and twine help to anchor the arrangement and Prills, pearly headed pins and epoxy embellishments fill it in.

This tag is full of country charm with the checkered background and burlap flowers.

Vintage buttons, butterflies, and clip are simple  but add quite a lot of detail.

Show Me The Green Challenge at RRR

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I bet you thought since we’re starting a new Show Me The Green Challenge that I would be making a St Patty’s Day themed project. Surprise! I didn’t hehe. I made a wall hanging inspired by a sweet and thoughtful sentiment from a cut apart on my fav new paper collection.

keep-life-beautiful-wall-hanging-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-01

I’ve got an graphic olive colored stripe layered in with altered chippies and oodles of flowers.

keep-life-beautiful-wall-hanging-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-05

There’s a strip of gold and white striped washi to coordinate with the butterflies. Vintage buttons are always the right answer.

So. Many. Flowers. Sisal and loopy bows made from twine are tucked in to fill in this generous arrangement.

More Petaloo flowers here along with tiny resin flowers.  I’ve added a double layer bow topped off with a button, tag, and peraly stick pins. That gorgeous frame is a scribble frame with white embossing powder that’s heat set. Last but not least a pretty die cut doily in crisp white.
