Paper Bag Shamrocks with Therm O Web

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!


It’s always such a happy feeling when Friday and the start of the weekend rolls around, isn’t it? I’m particularly grateful to get this past week under my belt, and I’m feeling quite lucky. Lucky to be done with the colonoscopy. Lucky for such good results. Lucky to eat again.


So today I’m celebrating with a few lucky clovers. Paper bag pillow clovers made this week for the Therm O Web blog using Therm O Web adhesives and papers from Photo Play Paper’s new spring release.


Creating paper bag pillows is one of my all-time favorite home decor projects. They are really easy to make, and add a festive look to your home for any season or holiday for very little cost. And better yet, this is a great earth-friendly project, utilizing natural elements and recycled materials, too. My kinda project!


I added stitching to my pillows, and dressed them up with layered trims and hand-stamped sentiment flags. But I’ve got lots of tips and tricks, and a full step-by-step tutorial for completing these shamrocks for all you non-sewers out there, up on the Therm O Web blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Creativation 2017- Good Vibes with Photo Play Paper

Hello, Friends!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

audreypettit-ppp-rhapsody-goodvibescard
I figured I could use some good vibes today, so this seemed the perfect card to share. Today is colonoscopy prep day. Totally routine…. just that time in my life when such things become necessary. But I’m sure not looking forward to it, and I’m already missing the food I won’t be able to eat later today.
All that glorious food! 😉

audreypettit-ppp-rhapsody-goodvibescard2
This is the adorable Rhapsody collection by Photo Play Paper. One of twelve new collections released this year for Creativation CHA. Love the hippy dippy bohemian vibe to this one.

Sending out lots of good vibes to all of you, my sweet friends! And I could use any spare ones you may have today, too!
Hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Creativation 2017- Welcome Spring with Photo Play Paper

Hello, Friends! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

audreypettit-ppp-bloom-hellospringtimecard
It has been the most beautiful weather here lately. I know I’m not alone in saying it’s actually been quite unseasonably warm. Warm enough for t-shirts. Warm enough that all our trees have already bloomed. Warm enough to enjoy a picnic on the beach, which I actually got to do this past week. It truly feels like spring has arrived. So a springtime card seemed fitting for today.

audreypettit-ppp-bloom-hellospringtimecard2
This is another card that I made for the Photo Play Paper booth at the CHA Creativation show this year. It’s a combination of two of their new spring-themed lines, Bloom and Hoppy Easter. I mixed prints from both of the collections, and fussy cut the kites from one of the patterned papers. The sentiment and focal point is made from two of the cut-apart journaling cards, trimmed out and stacked with scalloped borders for extra detail.

audreypettit-ppp-bloom-hellospringtimecard3
I did some partial stamping to add a tail string for the kites, and finished off with a few 28 Lilac Lane sequins. I love these soft colors.

Is it spring in your neighborhood yet? When we came close to hitting 80 degrees here this weekend, that really did it for me. My house is still filled with winter snowmen, and those poor babies are so out of place. I spent most of yesterday starting to pack them away….. and you know how that goes…. bare spots leads to more decorating, which leads to crafting of more things to do more decorating!

I’ve got my front entryway ready for St. Patty’s and a new shabby prim for all you Irish lovers out there. I’ll share those next time. Until then, hope your weeks are off to a great start!

Creativation 2017- The Scenic Route with Photo Play Paper

Hi Crafty Friends!

I’m back today with another CHA Creativation show project that I made for Photo Play Paper. This time, an adventure card featuring their new travel line, Boarding Pass.

audreypettit-ppp-boardingpass-explorecard

Summer vacation will be here before we know it. Time to dream, and make plans…. and work on your stockpile of bon voyage cards, like me. I had fun with my corner rounder and white gel pen on this one, creating some faux stitching around the edges of my paper layers. Reminds me of the stitching on an old leather briefcase or valise, and seemed quite fitting for my travel theme.

audreypettit-ppp-boardingpass-explorecard2
The background is layered with several patterned papers from the collection. I particularly loved the stripes and map print, so featured them here. The explore card and sentiment strip are from the cut-apart journaling card sheet. The Scenic Route strip is from a larger card that was cut down to size. I added a bit of twine and some tiny staples, and tucked a ticket sticker behind, for some extra detail.

Thanks so much for stopping by! And may you always explore the scenic route!

Creativation 2017- Hello Bloom with Photo Play Paper

Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!
I hope your week is off to a great start!

audreypettit-ppp-bloom-hellocard
Today I have another of my Creativation show projects to share. This time, a spring-inspired card made with one of Photo Play Paper‘s twelve newly released paper collections, Bloom.

audreypettit-ppp-bloom-hellocard2
A simple mix of patterned papers for the background, in one of my all-time favorites combos… polka dots and plaid. A bit of trim and twine tied with a button. The vase of flowers is one of the cut-apart journaling cards. And the sentiment is from the set of matching Bloom stamps.
