Spring Bird House Shadow Box

Standard

Hey Peeps I’m dropping in to share a sweet little shadow box that I created with charming little bird houses and loads of spring flowers.

Spring Bird House Shadow Box

This stand alone shadow box would look just perfect with an Easter bunny but can be displayed all season long as it’s not too ” Eastery”.

This little chipboard shadow box is deep enough to adhere the birdhouses inside at different depths for a nice dimensional look. I’ve painted it in a gorgeous spring green  to show off the flourishes and birdhouses.

I’ve selected blooms in bright cheerful colors and created a nice balance by adding some to the top and bottom of the shadowbox.

I’ve chosen a nice selection of pinks, green and white flowers and tucked in some speckled eggs. The birdhouse in the back also has a sweet little nest to welcome birds and make them feel at home.

To add a bit of softness to the hard edge of the roof line I incorporated some cheesecloth. It also helps to fill in the arrangement.

Okay that’s all for me. Whishing you all a happy and productive day.

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.

Spring Décor Wall Hangings

Standard

Well hello there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share some holiday décor that’s not specifically Easter but inspired by Spring so it can be displayed and enjoyed all season long.

Spring Tags Polly's Paper Studio Petaloo

I created 4 while I had the supplies out. Each has a coordinating  Post Card Nest Collage image so they are similar…..but just slightly different.

I started with a base of burlap adhered to sturdy chipboard then layered on all the paper pretties!

I love these flowers in shades of white and green. So perfect for spring.

There are more flowers tucked under the paper layers for added depth.  Chipboard painted in crisp white breaks up the busy paper patterns and adds texture.

I’ve added pretty coordinating ribbons, a wire hanger, wooden clothespin, seasonal brad, and washi tape to finish off these charming and just a little bit vintagy wall hangings.

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.

This arrangement is the perfect combination of soft muted colors and textures.  There’s a bit of twine and berries tucked in and a generous length of lace and washi tape.

Thoughts of Spring Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps!  I know I have thoughts of Spring as it’s been a long cold Winter. I created this card with bright cheerful colors, and a gorgeous selection of flowers.

I’ve chosen shades of purple for this card inspired by the gorgeous flowers.  Sadly I am not a very good gardener so all my flowers have to be Petaloo.

Oh my goodness there is so much texture here!!!! I’ve layered many types of flowers here and tucked in ribbon and twine and coordinating butterflies.

I’ve tucked in some altered chipboard and die cuts to enhance the floral theme.  These colors are bright and the patterns are busy so I used a solid purple cardstock to act as borders. Think Spring Vintage Inspired Greeting Card Holiday Home Decor Polly's Paper Studio 04

Additional flowers and butterfly here to balance the other arrangement.  The paper has been tattered and stitched and I added pearly accents for detail.

This paper from Graphic 45 was a nearly perfect match. I did alter the fairy just by using watercolor pencils and sparkle pens to color her wings and dress.

Spring Banner with G45 Children’s Hour

Standard

I was inspired to create a banner by the gorgeous vintage images and patterned papers from Children’s Hour.  The May selections were just so springy and paired with the chocolate colored patterns from the 6×6 paper pad the bright colors just pop right out!  I did some experimenting with the spays and gauze to create a background for the die cut frames. I wanted it to look like burlap and I think it turned out pretty great…even if I did spray my hand and the table! I added a little eyelash yarn to soften the edges and it also gives a great amount of texture.  The keys were finished with a light coat of Gesso to help them stand out and tied on with ribbon and buttons.
