Love and Cherish Valentine Printer Tray Home Decor


Hey there Paper Peeps! It’s Ginny here and I’m so very excited to be sharing my very first post for  Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. What a fun adventure it’s going to be for me to create with these fabulous chippies. For my first project I made a very Valentiny  Love and Cherish Printer Tray with lots of bits and bobs and finished it  with well altered chipboard embellishments.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 1 I just love a classic color scheme for holiday decor and I think this fits the bill. There’s just something about black and creme with red. Soooo romantic.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 3This gorgeous set of  Ivy Corners has been finished with red acrylic paint then inked and embossed then sprayed with a shimmery mist.  I wanted it to have a well worn and aged look so I dabbed a bit of gold paint in the edges.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 2I scavenged some seasonal embellies like the keys and heart and butterflies and gave them each a section of the tray being careful to balance the red with the chipboard and metal.

Love & Cherish Printer Tray Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts 5The chipboard was trimmed so it wouldn’t hang off the bottom ….easy enough with a small pair of sharp scissors.

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Supplies~Ivy Corners, Words & Phrases 1, Flourish Frame Sienna Mini.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Trim~Red Wrinkle Ribbon. I sprayed the ribbon with the Sued Glimmer Mist to age it and darken it a bit.

Paper from Graphic 45.

To finish the chipboard I used~Americana Cherry Red Acrylic Paint, Tattered Angels Suede Glimmer Mist, Ranger Black Soot Distress Ink, Wow Clear Gloss Embossing Powder.

Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Botanicabella Journal with Graphic 45


Hey there Peeps. Sorry for 2 posts in one day…but we have loads of creativity to share and sometimes it happens.  My next project is for Graphic 45 .  Botanicabella Journal.  This time of year it’s always nice to have  personal handmade items you can present as hostess gifts. A journal or notebook is a pretty and practical gift that can be used by just about everyone. They are sure to remember the special holiday they shared with you when they use it. This journal is created with one of my favorite lines Botanicabella. I added lots of layers and textures as well as tabbed dividers to keep notes organized. A little spritz of copper colored spray to bring it all together and give it an antique appearance.
