Saint Patrick’s Day Banner & Kit


Hey there and happy Tuesday!  I’m just dropping in to share a super fabby banner I created for St Patrick’s Day. It has so many festive details and fun embellies!st-patricks-banner-holiday-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-handmade-01

I’ve loaded this baby up with patterned papers, vintage images, tinsel trim, epoxy embellishments, lots of shamrocks with various finishes, ribbon, flowers, clip, rosettes, die cut doily, and wooden clothespins.


So many layers here makes me happy : )



She’s such a pretty little Irish lass.  I topped her off with a lucky label created with my old school style Dymo.


Ticket tags with poofy bows are strung on the ribbon trim to accent the large banner sections.

There are a few kits available for this banner. If you want to check out the details head on over to  St Patrick’s Day Banner Kit.

Enjoy the rest of your day Peeps!

Irish Charm Wall Hanging Holiday Decor


Happy Saturday Peeps!  We’re looking forward to an almost springlike day here in Michigan and I’m so happy for a bit of a warm up. I’m dropping in to share a sweet wall hanging I created for St Patrick’s Day with an image from the new Irish Charm Tags Digital Collage Sheet.


This charming Irish lass is perfect for layering with patterned papers, and lots of embellies.


There’s a glittery shamrock here with gorgeous flowers in shades of green. I tucked in some berry picks and twine to fill in a generous arrangement.


Loopy bows tied of chevron striped twill are topped off with bows of twine and vintage buttons. There is also a length of the ribbon to display on a peg or hook.


Chipboard altered with embossing powder and heat set creates a frame for the tag. I used spacers between the layers for depth.  I’ve got a fabby new thin striped washi tape that was perfect to add to the side of the tag  along with the enamel number plate and coordinating pearly accents.


I used a large die to cut the background with a border of  Celtic knots.  There are layers of 100 lb cardstock and printed scrapbook paper on the back for a finished look and for sturdiness.

St Patrick’s Projects and Deluxe Creativity Kit


It turns out I go through kit withdrawal. I just want to sit down with a pack of bits and bobs that all coordinate and get my craft on.  I get so happy matching up the papers and images then pushing the embellishments around until the find they’re perfect spot.   I got to play with the new St Patrick’s Deluxe Creativity Kit yesterday and this morning.  I got in the zone and channeled my inner Irish Lass and created quite a few lovely little projects.

Show me the Green Challenge at RRR


Happy March 1st to all you Paper Peeps. I’m hoping you all have much more Spring like weather than we are having here in mid-Michigan. Hopefully the old saying is right that it comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. Today is well below freezing and we’re expecting another 5-6 inches of snow overnight….uuugghhh.

Okay enough with the jibber jabber…..it’s time for another fabulous challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. This time it’s a “Show Me The Green” theme…how fun is that??? Okay I know what you’re thinking….Ginny doesn’t make green projects. Yep you got me…I normally don’t….but how can I help myself this time of year????

Here is my card….

IMG_3073I layered a few bold plaid and check patterns separated with a craft brown, then added a fun bingo card, a doily, and a sheet music oval. That makes a nice base for my pooftacular bow:

IMG_3072Oh yes I did layer Apple Green Satin Swiss Dots, with green chevron. If that wasn’t enough I topped it off with sweet green roses, glittery shamrocks, Wild Orchid Leaves, and a green vintage ticket image.

IMG_3071This little guy is adorable with his little green diaper on : ) I found him in with some valentine images…so odd…he had a red heart on his hat…..so I just covered it with bling. I added some pearly bling to the music image too! Of course he got a good dose of Stickles!

Okay…that’s it for my green challenge card. Now it’s your turn to whip up a fabulous “Show Me The Green” project and play along with the challenge. I’m off to the shop now to work on another great green creation….the banners we are creating in class next week.  I’m sure once we hang them they will bring us lot’s of luck!!!!

I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
