Well hello there Peeps and happy Llama Day! Hahah . I’m sharing a super sweet mini album I created with Alpine by Authentiqe and let me tell you how much I love this collection!!! Llamas and plaid. What’s not to love?
Awwwww look at that sweet llama. The image is the inspiration for this album. It’s layered up with the patterned papers, die cuts, flowers, ribbon, twine, chipboard, sequins, pearls, and fun winter themed charms.
The images here are the cut aparts and they are so fun. I wanted to keep the whole image and still have room for pictures and journaling so I added them as tip-ins.
Once the tip-ins are folded out you can see the first pages also have pockets with large tags.
These pages also have pockets but they’re on the sides. More tags to pull out created with the companion patters. I wanted to use this sledding image here but it was too wide. The solution was to clip it into 2 sections then add it as two pieces. I love how it turned out!
It’s so much fun to create interactive pages. These have twist tie closures. You can see here now that we’re in the middle pages that I’ve added eyelets to the spine. Not only does this give me a place to tie on the charms….but it helps the book pages to be nicely secured.
Once the flaps are open it shows the complimentary patterns inside. What a great place for pictures and journaling.
I just can’t get enough of these fun images so I used them to create pockets for more pull out tags. The smaller matted sections would be a great place to add memories.
The last set of pages have fun little flaps secured with clips. Simply flip the flap to reveal more area to scrapbook in.
Lining them with coordinating papers makes them extra fun.
Larger tags are tucked into the pockets and also fold up so you can add even more pictures.
Please enjoy this video flip through I’ve prepared for this super sweet mini album….
Happy Thursday Peeps! It’s officially February now so it’s okay that I’m a little crazy about Valentines. Like I would have my entire house draped in hearts and flowers and treats everywhere. Sadly I live in the house of boys so they would not appreciate balloons and confetti everywhere right?
I can however create pockets and fill them with sweet little tags…..
Isn’t this super retrolicious?????? This is the Forever My Always Collection from Pebbles.
Even without the tags it’s pretty dang cute. Anddddd there’s room in the pocket for treats!
Coordinating tags to fill the pocket. I love tags. Like a lot.
Hey guys just a quick post today. I’m sharing a sweet little country chic inspired greeting card created with Plaid Flower Tags Digital Collage Sheet from my shop. Please enjoy this video tutorial on how I created the card…..
Hello there Peeps! I’m happy to announce that we have a bit of a warm up here in Michigan. This morning it’s 52 degrees. This does good things for my disposition. I was in such a better mood that I was inspired to throw myself into Valentine projects.
This card has a very untraditional color scheme. I coordinated the papers to the wrap on the cherub. Altered chipboard, flowers, twine, sequins, and metal embellishments are the perfect accents.
A sweet and simple tag has soft colors and vintagy finishing touches. Using spacers between the layers build depth and interest.
The cherub tag on this card inspired the peachy pink colors from the paper patterns. Stickles added sparingly brings out the details on the vintagy image. I layered die cuts here and a rather generously sized flower arrangement.
Please enjoy this video tutorial I’ve created for this card…..
OMGosh Peeps I am super excited today to be sharing the new Retro Valentine Deluxe Creativity Kit 2018. You all know how much I love to create kits and to take one for myself to make projects with. What makes this kit deluxe? It’s got all the fabulous papers and images and bows you’re all used to seeing in the kits created by Polly’s Paper Studio….and it also has loads of extra fun holiday embellies like doilies, tinsel, ric rac, flowers, clothespins, brad, bling strip, and red glittery die cut hearts : ) I am practically giddy.
Here are the projects I created with the kit and a few bits and pieces from my stash…..
I had so much fun creating these 6 projects and I have loads of supplies left from the kit to make at least 2 more.
Please enjoy this video I’ve prepared for the Hey Sugar Valentine Tag….
Hey there all you fabulous friends! Well it’s the second day of the new year and we are still in a deep freeze here in Michigan. The only way to combat the stir crazies I get from being stuck inside is to throw myself into holiday crafting.
I’ve created a sweet and simple Gate Fold Valentine Card with Belly Band. Make sure to scroll to the end of the post for the video tutorial on how I created this card.
I’ve decided on a non traditional color scheme here to coordinate with the holiday bingo card. With the band on you can see that there’s loads of paper layers and die cuts.
Sliding the band off to reveal the gate fold. I used the bingo card to overlap and add extra detail.
The inside is finished with coordinating patterned papers and is so so sweet with the die cut heart doily.
Ginny here to share two cards made from the same collection. In fact they are made from the same sheet from the new On This Day collection. Two cards with two very different looks…..
For the first card I went all out with the layers and embellishments. The sweet little snowman was the inspiration.
I created loads of added detail and texture with mixed media supplies and stencils. The 3D powder added to the snowman creates a frosty look. All the papers were edged with Pearlescents in Brilliant Blue.
I fussy cut snowflakes from the reverse side of the 12 x 12 sheet and added brads to create perfectly coordinating embellishments. To accent the edge of the image I applied a generous coat of Silver Glitter Paste.
I divided the Double Dot Flourish into two parts and added a bit to the top and bottom corners. Last but not least layered paper and crocheted flowers with ribbon and twine. A sprinkling of matching sequins to finish off this card.
For the second card I’m still using the images from the January sheet but this time going in a much more restrained direction.
I’m calling this a “woodland” inspired look mostly because there’s a woodland in the image behind the tag.
I brought in Double Dot papers in dot and chevron that coordinates with the tag. I’ve alternated the scale of the patterns to keep it from getting busy. Spacers between the layers builds in depth and dimension.
Instead of one large doily I added two smaller ones and added them in an offset orientation.
Double Dot Jewels and clear sequins add detail without being over-the-top-busy.
Hey there Peeps! Well as you can see I’m late getting my post up again lol. Blame it on the nog and cookies : ) Or blame it on me sleeping in???? Either way I think it was worth the wait.
I’ve created some really sweet and vintagy New Year’s Greeting cards with the new Dollar Download Vintage New Years Printable from our shop. I like the idea of New Year’s cards for just that holiday….but they come in very handy if you’ve just not gotten out all the Christmas cards….or drat forgot someone on your list and got a card from them ( it happens to all of us) I think this is a good recovery.
