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.
