Thankful Grateful Blessed Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty Peeps! I'm sharing a card today that is a bit out of my comfort zone.  I'm using natural colors instead of shabby chic. I know it's freaking me out too!

Even though it's not my go to color combo I'm very pleased with how it turned out. 

I've gathered Burlap String and pretty coordinating flowers to fill in this arrangement.
That gorgeous plaid ribbon is the perfect accent for this card. I finished it off with a coppery colored clip, die cut doily,  and sequins.

How Does your Garden Grow?

 Do you enjoy spending time in your garden?  I created this layout to showcase some of my flowers using some beautiful ribbons and embellishments from Really Reason Ribbon.
I used the beautiful ribbon from this month's ribbon assortment - Pink & Purple Mix.
I then added the Bling Ribbon Slider to the beautiful Danielle White Crochet Lace to add additional softness to the layout.
I then added some of the Ivory/Blue Dimco 2 Flowers to add more dimension.
I hope this inspires you to capture your garden in your scrapbooks.

Summer Themed Mini Album

Hello there ribbon lovers!  Bonnie here today sharing a pretty beach theme mini album I made.  This has been in the works for a while and I finally finished up so I could share.  Mini albums and Ribbon Club Assortments from Really Reasonable Ribbon are a perfect combination since the ribbons are all coordinated to work perfectly together!

This mini album was made using the ribbons and lace from the April Ribbon Club assortment.  Since I didn't finish the album in a timely manner and the assortment is no longer available in the Ribbon Club category, I will offer it in the assortment category for the rest of June.  You can find it HERE.

Since Ribbon Club Assortments work so well for mini's (and lots of other projects!), why not subscribe today!!  I can envision lots of fun projects with these assortments.

Subscribe Today and begin with these two assortments for the
 low price of $17 if you are located in the USA.

Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles!

I love some nice coordinating ribbons to top the pull out tags in my mini albums along with embellishing the front and sometimes the spine.  I'm a little rusty and I forgot to plan ahead to add the ribbon to the spine on this one, but I won't make that mistake again.  The spine looks a little plain without ribbon embellishments other than the strip around the bottom.
Below are some photos of the inner pages and flip outs.
I have decided to follow some YouTube tutorials to create pages for a while until I'm back in the swing of how things go and what the possibilities are.  I'm finding the videos from Scrapbook Maven to be very good and in the style I like if you want to check out that channel.
I also added some small ribbon tabs as pulls for the flip up pages.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a crafty Tuesday!

For more information on the other products used on this mini album, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

Family Memories

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today, everyone!  It's Karen Letchworth sharing a sweet mini album I created using lots of fabulous products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used three paper bags, and I attached several different patterned papers using a fabulous Adhesive called Scor-TapeI did some machine stitching, added lots of great photo spots, journalling spaces, and tucked even more photo mat tags into each pocket.  That's the great thing about paper bag albums......they're cute, inexpensive and have built-in pockets.
The mini album cover is decorated with some Cosmo Daisies, a Mulberry Leave, some Ivory Burlap String, Red Double Head Stamens, White Double Head Stamens, and a 12mm Red Gingham Covered Button from our awesome Embellishment section.  I also placed one Blue Sweetheart Blossom on the cover just because they're SO cute!
The second page has photo mats, and is adorned with some Red, White and blue Sweetheart Blossoms, some Ivory Burlap String, a piece of Navy Ric Rac, Natural Crochet Lace, and a piece of 1/4" Red Chevron Striped Twill.  This shows you a great way to use up small ribbon/trim scraps.  I also tucked in another 12mm Red Gingham Covered Button.
On page 3 of the mini album, I kept it pretty simple.  There's a journalling spot, a photo mat, and some fun Embellishments.  I topped that with a small snippet of 1/4" Red Chevron Striped Twill and added a 12mm Blue Gingham Covered Button.
The next page has more places for photos and journalling, and has a wooden frame that's tied with some Cherry Baker's Twine, Blueberry Baker's Twine, and is topped with some more of the adorable Sweetheart Blossoms.  Really Reasonable Ribbon also sells Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms for smaller accents.....and they're all SO sweet!
Page 5 is the last page (other than the back cover), and it has a piece of Red Center-Stitch Burlap Ribbon topped with a lovely Ivory Open Rose.  These GORGEOUS flowers come in several sizes and come in over 24 gorgeous colors.  Finally, I used my Zutter to bind this mini album, and I tied some Red Center-Stitch Burlap Ribbon, Navy Micro Gingham, Red & White Houndstooth Ribbon on the binding.
There's simply no end to the possibilities for creativity when you use all that Really Reasonable Ribbon has to offer.  I hope you'll treat yourself today.  You won't regret it!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll visit again soon.

All You Need is Love and a Dog

Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Today I have a tutorial for you that will show you how to create a special pet themed birthday card  that is guaranteed to be a hit with all your pet loving friends.

This Jade Double Faced Satin Ribbon is the perfect playmate for Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs  Deluxe Collector's Edition.  I've paired it up with some lovely Natural Burlap String.  I don't know if I could craft without my burlap string!   Of course, I used my wonderful Bow it All Tool to tie all these fluffy bows! 

The card folio has a fun gatefold opening.

There's room to write a personal message on each side of the post card.  The center panel lifts to reveal a fun flap/photo mount element.

I created this folio for a very dear friend who is devoted to animal rescue.  I've included photos of her fur babies. 

If you'd like to make one of these card folios yourself, I've created a Snapguide Tutorial with step by step instructions, measurements, supply list and tips.  I hope you enjoy!

By The Seashore Card

Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing a pretty beach card that is sure to get you into the summer spirit.
My card features layers and textures galore. I framed the main image of the girl in the sand and the sentiment then softened the edges with sand ink. I wanted this card to have lots of interest and tried to achieve it by adding a variety of delicate accents like the paper doily, cheesecloth, 1/2" Light Blue Wrinkled Ribbon and a bit of random White Crochet Lace scraps. In contrast, I added a couple of buttons tied with Baker's Twine Solid Wheat Color, mini pearls, WOC Sweetheart Blossoms White with Red Center and Turquoise Cherry Blossom. A few Double Head Stamens were also added to the flower/starfish cluster along with a navy blue clothespin. I hope you like my card and feel inspired to get creative with ribbon and trims today too! Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time, happy crafting! :)

Red, White and Blue Mini Card

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Monday to you all! Today I'm sharing this sweet little card made using ribbon, lace and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I  LOVE this Poppy Satin Printed Ribbon, it's absolutely gorgeous in person. I also got it in a yellow and blue :)

This card was pretty simple to make. I took a leftover scrap piece of design paper and glued it to the mini card using the Scotch ATG refill tape that Really Reasonable Ribbon carries. Next I added the Sweetheart Blossoms Mini and regular size, along with a red Carnation flower, with Green Leaves.

The Doily I used is from Cheery Lynn Designs and it's a mini doily, so cute! Lastly I made my big bow using the beautiful Poppy Satin Ribbon.  I have to say I LOVE this ribbon along with the Gabrielle lace, as it's one of my favorites.

The Story Starts Here Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty Peeps! Today is the first so you know what that means......I get to share my first project created with the new Ribbon Club Assortment for June.
Isn't this Purple and Pink mix just delightful? It's so happy and cheerful!

I created a card for my first project....
These bows bring a fabulous pop of color to this card.

I was feeling like this card had a lot of rustic charm with the wood grain and doily so I added a nice border of lace and buttons : )

What's better than one bow? Two of course!

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
