Happy Fall

Hello RRR friends! With only a few days to go, I wanted to officially welcome in Fall! This card was super simple to pull together with this ready-made kraft card with fancy bottom edge along with some pretty trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I got a variety pack of these cards from Joann's last year and sometimes they work just right for the card I want to make. I stamped leaves from a Gina K stamp set in creamy caramel and close to cocoa SU inks then added some wonderful Natural Hemp Cord and Tabitha Natural Crochet Lace along the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by and allowing me to share my card! Have a great day!

Summer Sunflower by Jenn Cochran for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone!  Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks.  Today I have a cute little "Just Because" card.  This fun little bear is paired with a pretty little end of the summer sunflower.  I tied it all up using seam binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The Seam Binding is Grass Green.  It is super flexible and is one of my most favorite types of ribbon to tie bows with.  Once you tie it, it pretty much stays where you want it to.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries 2 pages worth of colors.  So if you love seam binding, you are guaranteed to find the right color here!

The look of a multi-looped bow really makes a card pop.  Plus seam binding is not at all bulky, so you can easily send it through the mail with no problem...maybe just a little smashing!!

Thanks for visiting!

Fun Ideas for Tricks or Treats

Hi everyone and happy Thursday to all of you.  Today I have lots of fun ideas to share with you to create fun goody bags to give to friends and family this year.

There are lots of these little white thin paper bags out now and these bags are the perfect size for little ATC cards to fit on the front.  I used stickers from my stash and a few Spellbinders dies that I had and then finished them off with beautiful ribbons from the September Ribbon Assortment and black jute ribbon to make them really special.  It's going to be fun to make up a lot of these since they are so fast and easy and you can use up some of those stickers you have been saving!!

For my little Spider pail, I used an old pail that I had been saving to re-purpose, and made up a pattern first to fit over it out of plain white paper.  Then I cut it out and carefully glued it to the pail and added some black ric rac from the September Ribbon Club Assortment to seal the bottom.  For the top I cut 2 pieces of the Spellbinders scalloped circle and glued them on.  And then I finished it by adding lots of pretty ribbons on both sides of the handle in a gorgeous shade of apple green.  And the cute sticker that says trick or treat is from Doodlebug.  Now it's ready to fill up and give away or maybe just use to decorate my house.  I am not quite sure yet :)  

Thanks for stopping over and have a wonderful day...

SPOOKY Witches "Trick or Treat" Bag

Hello Friends!!!!
Today I'm sharing my Trick or Treat "SPOOKY Witches" Goody Bag that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful ribbons from this months Ribbon Club Assortment kit. I love making these, and this one is a little different than the normal one.  It has 2 pockets. 

So what I did with this bag was cut the top part off, and then add it to the bottom to create a pocket to hold the tag. I guess I could put a goody in there as well, but didn't have any to add :)

I used Scor-tape to close the bottom pocket.  The 1/8" width tape is what I used, and to attach it I used the 1/2" Scor-Tape, both from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Ribbons I used from this months Ribbon Club Assortment are: The Black Ric Rac, Green Polka Dot Satin, Black Gingham, and Black Delicate Stitched Satin. LOVE all the ribbons in this months kit!  Well, I love them every month! Bonnie always does an AWESOME job at having these assortments perfect for all of us to use.

Next I added some of the Orange Pom Pom Mini to the bottom and top of the bag, and then the Green Polka Dots from this month's Ribbon Club Kit. For the top part of my bag, I used the Ric Rac in Black, as well as on my Witches Shoe.

The Hemp Cording I used as laces, and I chose to use both Black & Orange from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also used Buttons as well, and tied the Black hemp through one. My little Sweetheart Blossom, is also from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and Bonnie has tons of these in stock. These are now and have been my FAVORITE flowers to use on all my crafting projects :)

The Bag, design paper, and tag are all from Pebbles Thirty One Collection. My witches shoe was cut out using the Cricut and the cartridge called Happy Hauntings. Little tickets are from SU!, and hopefully I didnt forget anything here :)

Thank you all for looking and have a super wonderful day!!

Hugs to all,

Nevermore Halloween Card

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here and I'm sharing a very Halloweeny card.  Bonnie has the bestest Halloween trims, so it's very easy to be inspired. For this card I used Black Plaid Ribbon and Swiss Dots on Tangerine. Don't they look scrumptious layered up like that???

I used some festive holiday patterned papers from my stash and all the vintage images came from my NeverMore Halloween Collage Sheet. It's sorta Halloween meets Goth meets Poe and roses. Anyhoo, however you describe it...I loved working with it to create this card!

Wising you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )G
