Christmas Friends Shaker Tag


Well helloooo there Paper Peeps. Ginny here with another installment of Christmas in July and this time I’m using a garden full of flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with trims of course.

This is just so cheerful and sweet. I stamped and colored those little images. I do love to color.

Did I mention this is a shaker tag? I’m slightly obsessed with them right now.  Inside are coordinating sequins and Shaved Ice. These little cuties were a bit lost on the busy background pattern so layered in a bit of a snowy border hill for them to stand on.


So. Many. Flowers. Isn’t the burlap trim a wonderful texture behind the snowflake printed satin?

I added a bit of tinsel trim for extra sparkle and included a twine loop to hang.

April Blog Hopping with RRR


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.

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

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!

Layered Cameo Tags


Hey there Peeps! Ginny here to share some very vintagy inspired tags with cameos .  I’ve never actually owned a cameo…..but now I think I may need to change that as these are so my style!!!

These chippies were a snap to alter so I went ahead and made several tags.


I’ve layered the Cameos onto some chippies that reminded me of doilies for an even more vintagy look.

I pulled out all the girly embellies like lace and ribbons to make these tags even more feminine.

Kiss Kiss Valentine Shaker Tag Holiday Home Decor


Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I’ve got a very sweet Valentine treat for you! It’s a shaker tag created with the oh so cool Hello Word Frames.

So much cuteness here I can hardly stand it!!!!! The secret to the success of this project is that the frame has straight sides to make it easy to cut the foam…otherwise I’d be in a big mess and glued to the project. Okay…I did glue myself to it….but that happens to me all the time.

I’ve pulled out all the sparkly bits and trims for this because that’s what Valentine is for.

I intentionally adhered the sequins around the edge for equal distribution of the colors and shapes. There’s hearts inside and pretty mint along with some holiday postage stamp cut outs.  I didn’t want all the sequins to get squished behind the large stamps.

I finished off this tag with a charming little banner in mint to coordinate with the sequins.
Here’s how I made the shaker….

I started with the Hello Word Frame with the heart cut outs and a few patterns of holiday paper. There’s also some repurposed packaging from the flowers and foam that I traced and cut to fit.

I gave the chippie a base coat of white acrylic paint then used my dabber and pen to apply adhesive to the heart section. Next I sprinkled on the red glitter embossing powder and set it with the heat tool.
I glued the layers together with the sequins and stamps inside, then covered the edges with tinsel trim. Then I added it to my tag and layered on all the embellies.

I’m so pleased with how this turned out!!!! I think I’ll be making shakers with the rest of the frames from the package : )

Holiday Merry Wishes Tag


Hey there Peeps. Ginny here to share a very festive Christmas Tag I created with many of my favorite Cheery Lynn Designs Dies and some fun patterned papers and embellishments.
I created the base for this tag with the Coved Rectangle Stitch and Cut die using the middle size to cut 1 from 110lb cardstock and 1 from red cardstock. I adhered these together to make a sturdy layer to add the rest of the sections.

Using the next size down in the set of Coved Rectangles I cut a layer from red checked paper and attached it with spacers between.

To add texture and detail I tucked in a section of Gauze Border that I snipped to fit and dovetailed.  It’s held on with glue and a funky giant paper clip.

Christmas flowers are the funnest to make and these were a (slightly messy) blast.  I created the Poinsettia with matching red cardstock and accented the tips with Sugar Glitter Paste before assembling. The center is  pieces clipped from a berry pick and given a light coat of alcohol ink to color it to coordinate. The white flower is the  Gardenia cut with crisp white.  Every flower arrangement needs leaves so why not use Holly shaped leaves with a little inking on the edge and Stickles to make it extra festive?

A few last details like this Tiny Kaleidoscope  Doily , chipboard sentiment and pearly accents are perfect for this tag and finished off with some snappy red and white stitched ribbon.
