From Our Kitchen to Yours

There is something special about giving a thoughtful gift of baked goods.  It is like giving a piece of yourself.  Why not make that gift extra special by adding a creative container to hold those homebaked goodies?
It was easy by easing a vintage berry basket and ribbons and lace from Really Reasonable Ribbons.  
I wrapped the Sheer Iridescent Antique Gold Ribbon around the container, then tied a pretty bow, tucking a bow under the ribbon made out of the Antique Gold Burlap String.
I then added the Chloe Natural Crochet Lace around the top of the basket.
Then I tuck in a tag and filled up the container with some yummy homemade chocolate chip cookies.  It was so easy to create this cute container to give as a gift.  Looking forward to creating a few more to have on hand when a special gift is needed.
Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.

Scripture Card and Tag

Hello to all our sweet blog friends!  It's Karen here today, and I thank you for stopping by to take a peek at this sweet little card and tag set I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I recently picked up this fun new pack of Echo Park patterned papers, journalling cards and stickers at Tuesday Morning, and I used them - along with lots of wonderful products from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store to create this set.......and you can always find the PERFECT ribbons, trims and adornments to match all your colorful projects at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I attached the papers, journalling card and chipboard frame using strips of Scor-Tape.  Next, I stamped my sentiment, and then....the fun began.  I used several White, Turquoise, Light Blue, Pink, Red and White Double-Head Stamens, and a length of Ivory Burlap String and Olive Burlap String to start creating the floral cluster at the top left.  I also incorporated a few different Mulberry Leaves, and some Turquoise, Pink, Yellow and Dark Blue Open End Roses.
Down at the bottom in the chipboard frame, I added more of the sweet Double Head Stamens, Turquoise and Pink Sweetheart Blossoms, more Ivory Burlap String and different colors of sequins here and there.  A bit of machine stitching, and that's about it for the card.
I also made a cute little tag to tuck inside the card.  I created this by using the same Echo Park papers.  Using strips of Scor-Tape, I attached some thin pieces of the patterned papers as well as a width of Natural Crochet Lace.  I also attached some Pink, Blue, Turquoise and White Double Head Stamens, some Open End Roses and Mulberry Flowers. I added a small sentiment sticker, and then at the top of my tag, I added a cute new 12mm Mixed Color Fish Scale Round Cabochon from the Embellishments section.   The final touches on the top of my tag include the Blue Center Stitch Burlap RibbonBright Pink Gingham Ribbon, and Light Pink Gingham Ribbon.   Really Reasonable Ribbon always helps make it easy to beautifully adorn all my projects.
Thanks for stopping by today, and please visit again soon.  There's always lots of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog, as well as our monthly Blog Hop on the 13 of each month; so be sure to stop by there as well.

Garden Themed Shaker Easel Card with August Ribbon Club Assortment

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Have you seen the gorgeous August Ribbon Club Assortment yet?  Ooh la la!  It's a beauty!  I love the fact that the ribbons can be used for our upcoming fall themed projects, but they are also fabulous for end of summer card making.  Take a peep at this pretty "Life Began in a Garden" Easel Shaker Card.

I found so many wonderful ways to use the ribbons from the club assortment on this card.  To create my border, I layered 3/8" Sunflowers on Kiwi Grosgrain Ribbon over  Crochet Lace. Another snippet of the same crochet lace is tucked beneath a trio of my cherished vintage ivory buttons.

This double layer bow cluster is made with cheery Dandelion Diamond Stitch Satin Ribbon and adorable 3/8" Sunflowers on Grograin Ribbon.   It's the perfect color match for my pretty mulberry flowers. Naturally, I tied all my bows with my Zutter Bow it All Tool.  That tool gets a daily workout in my studio, and I love it!

Here's a peek at the inside.  I added a couple of little pockets to the upper portion of the card.

Then I tucked in a little lavender sachet and magnet set.  Just for fun!

Wishing you all a day filled with lots of joy and creativity!

Elegant Baby Shower Favors

Hi friends, Linsey here today sharing my latest project with you! I always love the idea of making my own party favors for special events and occasions. With summer in full swing, I was feeling wedding and baby shower vibes so I decided to create some pretty party favors for either of these special occasions. These would also work great for a Sunday brunch or afternoon tea with the ladies, placing one at each table setting for an elegant extra touch. Simply change out the sentiment and you have a new theme.
I chose cardstock in an array of pink and purple shades, then dry embossed each piece with the Teresa Collins Bella Rose Embossing Folder. Next, I die cut each piece with a treat/favor box die, then assembled accordingly. Both sides of each box are wrapped with rose gold sequin string and secured in the back. To adorn each box, I added Wild Orchid Craft Cherry Blossoms Mixed Pastel Colors ,Cherry Blossoms Mixed Lilac/Purple and Wild Orchid Craft Bead Berry Spray Clusters White.
To complete, I die cut 5 mini tags from the Teresa Collins Tabs and Tags Project Dies set and added a clear sticker sentiment to each one, then tied each tag to a floral cluster with Ivory Burlap String. Fill with candy, chocolates or a small gift of choice. These favors are sure to delight and impress your guests, making them feel super special, too. I'd love to receive one, how about you? :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Until next time, happy crafting!

If Friends Were Flowers Card

 Hello everyone and Happy Friday to you all! Today's sweet Queen Bee card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and also for a sweet friend of mine who loves crowns, so I thought this would be super cute to give to her as a thank you card. I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's beautiful ribbons and embellishments on this one, along with some adhesives as well. I will list everything below. All dies used are Cheery Lynn's darling dies, just LOVE them and of course had to use them again to create this sweet card.

Whimsical Bee B800- cut in black, and then added Daffodil Satin Ribbon behind for the yellow and white swirl, love the look it gives to the die cut. super fun and cute! For the crown on the bee I used Cheery Lynn's Ornate crowns B891, and then painted using perfect pearls for the shimmer, and Stickles for the glitz.  Of course I had to add a sweet RRR flower to the left lower corner of the crown. On the bee I also added a Heart Embellishment from RRR.  The bee is placed on a white  Flourish frame.
Daisy Strip B259- daisy flowers were cut in white and then dabbed with yellow ink and I added some black dots to the edges of each petal. Next I hot glued the little flower to the center of the daisy.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Crosshatch Peony Satin Ribbon
Black Plaid ribbon
white pearl daisy flowers(centers of daisies and corners of card)
Heart Embellishment
Resin Pink Flowers
Daffodil Satin Ribbon
Foam Squares
Scotch Adhesive Refill ATG tape

 This card was so much fun to create.  I made this one using some of the leftover design papers from my other Bee card I posted at the beginning of this week. I just added some pink and of course changed the layout and design a little, but used all the same dies, except the crown was added. I LOVE the way this one turned out, and hope she loves it too!
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

It's the Best Time of the Year Greeting Card

Hello there friends and Happy August to you! It's the first and that means I get to share the first project I created with the Autumn Ribbon Club Assortment.
I've got one more  holiday project that I created for Christmas in July to share.
  I used that gorgeous Taffeta from this assortment to accent the card. I just love how the ribbon brightens up this warm and wintry color scheme.
 The taffeta bow is topped with a second bow of loopy twine and a vintage button.
Pearly bling and a die cut doily in crisp white break up the busy patterns. Tiny word stickers offer a sweet and simple sentiment.
A magnolia flower is the center of this flower arrangement and joined with pretty frosted blooms, altered chipboard, die cut pine cones, and evergreens.
