Inspirational Wall Hanging

Hi friends and happy Monday to you! Linsey here today sharing my latest mixed media creation, which is an altered CD turned inspirational wall hanging! I really had a ball making this one and I sure hope you enjoy seeing it! 
I first altered the CD base using a stencil and embossing paste, then I colored it with sprays and inks. The center was decorated with a metal clock frame and a resin piece with chipboard wings. Then I added the inspirational bible quote to the front.
Now, for the fun part--all that gorgeous ribbon and trim!
 I used my Cropadile to punch holes through the cd and then tied different trims through each hole. The following were used: Light Blue Mini Ric Rac, Rosemary Natural Crochet Lace, Sharon White Crochet Lace, Jute String Royal Blue and Burlap String Ivory. I added some beads and charms to some of the trims at the bottom. I like the overall effect. 
I hope you feel a bit of inspiration from my project today and thanks so much for stopping by! Happy crafting!

Merry & Bright Holiday Card

Happy Sunday! Cherry  here at the RRR blog.
I have had Christmas on the mind.  I have many Christmas projects I want to get done this year, so I better get busy.  I have a card to share today featuring pretty ribbon and embellishments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
 I used my all time fave Lipstick Red Seam Binding.
 I love this brilliant red....never grow tired of it.  I also added some fun Plaid Cabochons

Thanks for visiting, Cherry

Sweet Christmas Tag

Hello crafty friends, Cheryl here with a sweet Christmas tag I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using some of their gorgeous ribbons from the October Ribbon Club Assortment, and then some embellishments as well. I picked two ribbons and then the lace from this month's kit. Love them all!!!

On my tag I chose to use Graphic45 design paper to cover this large tag, then cut one of the design papers that had little tags and added this one using the foam tabs, and that is where the Santa and sentiment came from. I had some red poinsettia's that I had cut extra for my card yesterday and thought they would be cute on this tag, so I added what I had left. I also added some 8mm pearls, metal leaves, and green leaves to the cluster of poinsettias. I added lace across the bottom, and then used the large diamond satin to tie through the hole, and then used the other satin to create my bow.

I had a lot of fun creating this sweet little Christmas tag, as it took very little time, and was super easy to make. Love when you can make tags fast, and they turn out cute! :)

Kanzashi Flower Inspiration with Video Tutorials

Hello ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here today with some more Kanzashi flowers to inspire you.  All the ribbon, embellishments and hair clips or pin backs can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
All the flowers were created with 1-1/2" wide Grosgrain Ribbon.  I used a couple different Embellishments and RRR carries a large variety of embellishments that are the perfect size for flower centers, whether they are kanzashi flowers or paper flowers.
The first flower is in colors that would be perfect for autumn or winter and would be equally great as a brooch for a coat using a Pin Back or for a hair clip when you add the Hair Clip hardware of your choice.  The center of this flower uses a 14mm White Flower Shape Pearl Embellishment.
Both of the flowers are a mix of petal made following the video tutorials below.

Well, I love purple so of course one of the flowers I made is a pretty purple mix.  You just can't go wrong with a purple and green color combination.  On the center layer of this one I made layered petals following the new folding technique above but I just used the one color.  It's another interesting look.
The center embellishment on this one is one of my personal favorites.  It's a 12mm Glass Bi-Color Wave Cabachon and it some in a pretty mix of colors.  Love Love Love!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more crafty inspiration, please visit me at my Make Time to Craft Blog.  Happy crafting!!
