Hello everyone! Cheryl here & I am super excited (Doing the Happy Dance)to be part of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team again! I LOVE working with Bonnie & all the DT gals, as we all always have so much fun. She carries the most BEAUTIFUL assortments of ribbon! I LOVE being able to design with all the different types of Ribbon/lace/trims/& flowers at the RRR Store! Thank you Bonnie for having me once again!!! Big Hugs to you!!!
Okay, so for my post today, I have created a Shadow Box 8" x 8" Layout to share :) Hope you enjoy my post for today! :)
I decided for my first post I would create an 8 x 8 layout for this shadow box I picked up. I went with all purples and some cream, as this photo is a dear one I will treasure always. It 's a photo of my Grandma and I. I miss her dearly!!! I will always remember the day we had this photo taken one week prior to me going into labor with my 1st daughter. I remember my Grandma saying, "let grandma buy you robe for the hospital" hehehe I was soooo TIRED, that I said "Grandma can we wait please" as I just wanted to go home and sleep....hehehee
I absolutely LOVE the assortment of Delicate Stitched Satin Purple Ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store! I chose to use two of the colors from this assortment pack on my layout for today! The colors I chose are the 2nd & 3rd color.
Layout Measures 8" x 8"
Layers-I used Bling Card Stock for this. And then some crate paper design paper, and another one, the stripes, was from my stash. My 1st layer is an 8 x 8 cream. I then cut a purple bling card stock at 7 3/4" x 7 3/4", then the dp piece is cut at 7 1/2" x 7 1/2". Then add sewing. Next layer is 6 3/4" x 6 1/2". that is cream card stock, then the purple is cut at 6 1/2" x 6 1/4", then the stripe is cut at 6 1/4" x 6", then add sewing to that panel. Next is the Photo layers 6 1/4 x 4 1/2" that is the bottom layer,I then layered the next on cutting it 6" x 4 1/4", and the Photo is 5 3/4" x 4".
Ribbons- Really Reasonable Ribbon Stitched Satin is used for the banners, and for the bows. I just took the 2 lighter colors and started making my loops for my bow. LOVE how easy this works up!
Banners- I used thickers to make my banner that says "NANI & I" then used Really Reasonable Ribbons Arianna Lace. I cut it down the center and used both sides for around the banner pieces. Super easy, just use hot glue :)
Flowers- My flowers I made, and I do have a video showing how here , and then I added some of Really Reasonable Ribbons Beautiful Aster Daisy Stem Flowers in 2-tone baby pink, however I did airbrush them to color them to match the PURPLE, I used copic BV00. I added some glass white leaves, and then some punched out branches in purples.
Feathers- My Purple feathers are VINTAGE and I have tons in my stash, love using these with ribbons and such.
Embellishments- I used different buttons, pearls, French Generals Jolee's boutique pieces I gold. I also used the brad with a purple flower in the center(found left bottom corner of layout). Sewing completes my layout for today
I would LOVE to create more of these shadow boxes for a hallway in my home. So I will be sharing some larger layouts, in the black ones I picked up, they are 12 x 12 size, so cant wait to share those!
I hope you enjoyed my post today, as I truly enjoyed creating this one to share!
Have a wonderful day to all!!
