RRR Boutique Christmas Bows

 Hello everyone! Happy Monday to you all!  Misty (@Mommyofkidz) Here with you today for the first time in a very long time!  I was so excited when Bonnie invited me to join the Team again...and I couldn't wait to get started!  I was on the team when my baby was 4 and I left around the time that she was 8...when life got too overwhelming. My love for ribbon NEVER diminished, though!!  Life has calmed down a bit, and my baby is now EIGHTEEN and a freshman in college!!!  Once upon a time, I used to make super fancy hair bows for her... but I kinda don't think she will wear them anymore.  Now, I get to make them for my niece's baby girl.  I will even try to get photos every now and then of Missy Prissy wearing one...but not this time sorry! She has been sick and cranky, so I opted to just take photos minus the adorable model.

Today, I want to share  a couple of bows that I made using the GORGEOUS Christmas Assortment along with a few other ribbons tossed in for good measure.  Y'all...isn't this the most amazing assortment!?  It is perfect for every Holiday craft you can think of!

This assortment is spectacular, as are ALL of the assortments that Bonnie creates!  When it arrived, I immediately had visions of sugarplums dancing in my head!  This was going to make a PERFECT bow! I started with the red and green plaids and solids from the assortment, and added in a black grosgrain 1 1/2 inch for the base, and a 7/8 red grosgrain with black swiss dots. I used a few of the white star pearl embellishments on this one for a bit of "Extra" beauty.  

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with the stars...I put them on Everything! Bows, cards, tags, scrapbook pages, you name it!  They are gorgeous!! YES...I am addicted to these things, too. 

For the second bow...I decided to make it a cute little Korker.  For the Korker ribbons, I just wrap my ribbon around a dowel rod and bake them in the oven on 275 for half an hour. YES...I bake my ribbon!
For this one, I used all of the 3/8 inch ribbons from the Christmas Assortment and added in a few more as well.  More swiss dots...because I am addicted to the ALL the colors! I also tossed in a 3/8 inch zebra print to add a bit of funky flair to this bow...I mean...Every little girl has a wild side, right? 

Hopefully theses bows will make Miss Everleigh smile when I give them to her.  I know they male me smile! I haven't made a bow in ages...and it sure did feel good to do these! I even have a bit more ribbon leftover...I just may get creative and crank out one more before I deliver them. With Christmas time upon us, I know these will get plenty of use! 

Thank you for stopping by today and indulging my ramblings about my love for ribbon.  
Bonnie truly does have the best...and she creates the most gorgeous Assortments! I am truly honored to be back with this amazing team, and so very excited to be creating with Bonnie's ribbons again! 
Go take a look for yourself...I promise you will find the perfect ribbons for ALL of your holiday projects! I hope you all have a wonderful week...and Stay Crafty My Friends!

Christmas Skater Shaker Card

Really Reasonable Ribbon-Stamperia Sweet Winter-Shaker Card-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Do you ever create Christmas cards in a non-traditional color palette? I really like to do this, because the cards can be left out on display throughout the winter months. It's like getting more bang for your crafting buck.

Non-Traditional Christmas Shaker Card-Stamperia Sweet Winter-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement

A Bluebird Gingham Bow topped with Silver Metallic String adds to the sparkle and shine of this framed shaker card.

 Everyone knows you need a hot cuppa and a snack to help you warm up after a skating party, so I've tucked a tea bag, honey stick and chocolate treat into the pocket.  Now the card doubles as a gift, which is mighty nice.

Hope you are all enjoying these wonderful days leading up to Christmas.  Whether you are crafting, baking, decorating or shopping, take time to enjoy the wonder of the season.

Let It Snow

It's no secret that I absolutely LOVE using ribbons, trims and twines of different kinds on my cards and projects.  There's just something special about the texture and depth that ribbons, trims and flowers add to our cards.  With that said, I am a HUGE fan of all things from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Not only do they carry the best assortment of ribbons and trims, Mulberry FlowersAdhesivesHair Accessories and more; but this fabulous company is also owned by one of the sweetest gals in crafting that I've ever met.  You'll always receive amazing Customer Service and fair shipping costs at Really Reasonable Ribbon in addition to having access to amazing products at great prices.
This darling card uses lots of patterned paper and ephemera from Crate Paper (my favorite).  I cut the birdhouse and bird using dies from Simon Says Stamp.  At the top of the birdhouse, I added a sweet bow that's tied with Red Seam Binding.  Don't you just love these soft sweet colors and wonderful textures?
Down on the bottom left, I added some bundled Ivory Burlap String underneath all those leafy branches. I also added a few pretty Red Open Roses to the branches.   At the bottom of the birdhouse, I added a piece of Ivory Crochet Lace.  I used lots of Scor-Tape to secure everything in place.  I added some pretty White Flatback Pearl Accents to the chipboard banner.
No matter what you're looking for and no matter what your crafting style or skill level is, there are certain things at Really Reasonable Ribbon that every crafter needs.  I truly hope that you'll stop by and check out Really Reasonable Ribbon and support this awesome company and store-owner.  You'll LOVE what you find there.  Happy crafting, everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by today.
