Joy’s Life meets Mary Engelbreit

29 Aug
Hello everyone, Jeannie from The Polka Cabana here today with a fun gift card/tag/letter etc. idea.  I hope that some of you from Close Friends on Facebook are here to visit and get an idea of what you can also do with things you might have lying around your house.  I am on a design team for a fun site called Joy’s Life.com.
All of us on the Joy’s Life DT are working with these Swatch Tag. Swatch tags are used for lots of crafters to keep track of paper and pen color samples etc. 
Here is my completed project.
 
Here is a side view, these tags could be used as anything.
 
I have gathered all of mine together as a card/letter
.
 
I had a lot to say, so each tag is numbered on the back to keep them in order.
 
 
I used quite a few stamp sets and had fun mixing and matching the phrases to get the exact words I needed.  That is the best thing about these stamps for me.  First there are so many phrases and then if you get creative, you can make up your own by mixing, matching and splicing! 
 
 
 
All of my images are taken from a Mary Engelbreit desk calendar.
 
All of my fun papers are from Canvas Corp.
 
A big thank you to May Arts for my wonderful ribbon.
 
The buttons?  Are from PaperTrey Ink.
 
Isn’t it great how I was able to get some sort of sentiment for each tag I made?
 
I am so happy to have these Joy’s Life stamps, it makes projects like this so much more fun to put together.
 
Here is a final peek at all of them together.
I hope you have liked my project for the day.
This has been Jeannie posting for Joy’s Life.com. 
A special thank you to any and all of you who have stopped by from Close Friends!

My project is up at MAY ARTS CHALLENGE!!

17 Apr

I am soooo excited!  I was chosen to participate in the current May Arts Challenge..

Here is the ribbon we had to work with.

We needed to use all the ribbon in the challenge…here is what I came up with.

I was given this display tree from my local pharmacy that did not need it anymore.

It was originally gold, red and white, but look what spray paint can do in a matter of seconds!

My idea is that this would be perfect for some sort of shower.  Bridal shower, baby shower?  The tine shopping bags could hold small trinkets to give away.

Or even if done all in white it could be like a money type tree at a wedding.

Don’t you love all that yummy ribbon?  AHHHH MAY ARTS, I LOVE YOU!!

I big I love you also goes out to MOMENTA PAPER, all the paper here is paper from their company.

Search the word KALEIDOSCOPE for some of my FAVORITE Momenta products!

 The papers I chose are a perfect match to this fun color palette that May Arts has for this challenge.

Head on over to May Arts and see what everyone else did!  You will get some fabulous ideas!  Leave a comment for a chance to win the prize which is 1 roll each of all these fabulous ribbons I have used!  Be sure and tell them The Polka Cabana sent you over!
