Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop



Hello everyone and welcome to another amazing Blog Hop here at the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Blog! 

For all of our challenge lovers, be sure to stop back on the 15th when we post our next challenge. New challenges are posted on the 1st and 15th of each month. We would love to have you join in.

Today you will see some great projects using our March Ribbon Club Assortment from our very talented design team. They always come up with some super ideas. 


Isn't this assortment great??  It contains 8 styles and a total of 16 yards.  If you aren't already a ribbon club member, why not join us today!  You will get a fun new ribbon assortment shipped automatically each month.

Now let's get hopping and see what our fabulous design team has created this month!

Here is our blog hop list. 
If you get lost along the way or find any broken links, hop on back here and we'll get you back on track.

Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings

Now, be sure to leave some love at all the stops along the way. Your comments are most appreciated!

At the end of the hop, comment on this post answering the question below for a chance to win our March Ribbon Club assortment and the extra goodies shown below.


Our question of the month is:

What kind of crafting tools/supplies do you have in your stash that you haven't used in ages? 

I've been trying to pull out my old 'stuff' and figure out new ways to use it.  I just saw a terrific project on Heidi's blog using Shrink Plastic.  I'm getting that out to play with again when I get back from my mini vacation. :)
I'm leaving the Blog Hop open a bit longer this month because I'm off to visit my son Steve in North Carolina for his birthday.  Our winner will be selected from the numbered comments on this post on Tuesday, 3/20 using random.org. Be sure to check back on Tuesday evening to see if you are our lucky winner.

Thanks so much for hopping with us today. We hope you'll stop by and so some shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon soon.

**Don't forget we have a design team call going on right now.  You can find the information HERE.

  3. I rarely use my punches anymore since I got my Sizzix eClips. I can create the shape I need in any size which is great.

  6. i haven't used my paper cutter in a long time!

  7. I don't use my tag puncher much or my chalks either. Thought I would when I bought them! Eventually, everything gets used in my arsenal. Guy cards require a little more thought and imagination, I think, so that's when I pull out the little used brads and eyelets. All in all I love all my stuff! LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have a Cricut and should be using it more. Sometimes I just forget it's there!

    ReplyDelete
  9. paper crimper. Only seem to use it when needing padding for cards with embellishments, lol.

  10. That's a good question! I have punches that I haven't used for some time now and also the glitter and the copic markers (I usually draw the stamps with the pencils)

    Have a great week!

  15. Super hop! I love ribbon and try to use it often but sometimes don't because my ribbon bin is such a mess. I need a great ribbon storage idea!!!! Anyways, I have not used my embossing powders in a very long time. Guess I have to get them out now!!! Thanks for the hop and the chance to win some beautiful ribbons.

  34. I loved all the projects on the hop. Your question has made me think. I do have some cutters that I got from Creative Memories years ago when I first started scrapbooking. I have found other cutters since then that I use. I also have some eyelets still waiting to be used. Now that you asked this question, I will be looking through my stash to find what else I have forgotten I have and see how I can use them!

  38. Just made my way around the crop and back. Hrm...things I tend to forget I have so I use them rarely are mostly things like some of my older stamp sets and sizzix dies. I'm always happy with the results I get using the dies, so I really shouldn't be neglecting them, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  39. I haven't used my chipboard alphabets for a while. Thanks for the chance at a fun prize!

  45. I have boxes of embellishments that I haven't used in ages. I have so many different products that I keep buying and adding to my collection and forget all of the fun embellishments that I could be incorporating into my creations. Thanks for the reminder!

  46. I have so many many border punches and all of the crop o diles but usually only use a couple of them over and over. I also bought the Sew Easy and have never used it but at least I know when I am ready to give it a go it is waiting patiently for me. lol

  47. I would love a chance to win the club kit. What a great kit!!! I must say I am going to get my crocheting again to make some out to make flowers for my work. I love All things little, and have since I was able to walk.

  48. Great Hop! The colors are to die for this month. The tool that is the most lonely in my tool box is my sewing machine. It hasn't been threaded in a couple of months.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow! stunning projects from your DT. Definitely a lot of inspiration there! I think the tool I really need to blow the dust of off is my Sew Easy..I bought it last year and have yet to even try it yet! It is on my list to do this week!
    Thanks for a great hop!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I so enjoyed the blog hop creations; and this months color combo ribbon selection. So beautiful. I have one project that keeps begging me to use; and it is also my sew easy.
    I can even use ribbon with it; I bet.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Great ideas these ladies came up with. Wow what I haven't used. Do we have a limit??? I have just about anything you can think of and haven't been able to get time to use it :( I would probably have to say eyelets, punches, my embossing powders and glitters.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I just started getting more into the scrapbooking and cards...all that stuff I have is new to me...so I must say my wood crafts and paints have kinda got pushed aside..definitely be diggin in soon...miss them and want to incorporate them into the scrapbooking projects.:)

    ReplyDelete
  53. This has been an amazing Blog Hop! Congratulations to all the ladies for such wonderful projects!

    I used to heat emboss and use fun flock a lot, but it's been a loooong time since I've done either. Hmmmm ... there may be a fuzzy bunny in my card making future ...lol. Thanks for the ideas and the inspiration!

    Hugs,
    Snoopy :D

  54. Amazing blog hop! Great creations by all!
    I hate to admit all the stuff I haven't used in a long time! Brayer-crimper-heat embossing-the list could go on and on!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Rubber Stamps. I have several I first got that I have never used. I need to use them. If not I need to give them a good home where they won't be forgotten. I just finished the hop. It was wonderful! There were some really terrific projects in the hop, plus I learned a couple of things alone the way. Thanks for the inspiration! Edwina Brown edwina.brown@live.com

  56. I haven't used my soldering tools in ages. Nor my iTop, hundreds of the thousands of stamps I own, some of my punches and worst of all, my due cutting machine.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I just finished the blog hop & got some really great ideas! I LOVE the ribbon colors!

    I have one tool that I just haven't found myself using - a decorative stapler. Anyone got any ideas for it?

    Although I do really like it, I haven't pulled out my crimper in awhile.

    Would love to win the March ribbons!
