Ginny takes over the blog starting now!



"Ohhh how I love a banner and I also love Rare Oddities and in my humble opinion this is a match made in heaven. I layered the patterned papers with fussy cut images, large dimensional flowers, and glittery die cuts then strung it on a cool graphic ribbon with tags between.

I had a blast creating this masculine inspired greeting card using the warm colors and richly patterned papers of Safari Adventure. Lots of layers with solid borders and spacers between for dimension.  I've added a doily die cut...but cut from black .There are also burlap flowers to add a lot of texture and fill in this arrangement I tucked in some black netting.  I think this might be very nice for just about any occasion....and after all...an elephant never forgets!" ~Ginny
