Halloween Treat Bag with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have a super fun Halloween Treat Bag I decorated using Really Reasonable Ribbon's beautiful ribbons and supplies. I forgot how much I love designing cards and such for Halloween, it's so much fun! Also Lily Kitty just had to get in the photos, she loves being with me when crafting and I guess taking photos too....heheeheh
Hope you enjoy!

So for my treat bag I used a bag I had from Pebbles, and added some design paper in orange, then a tag, Tilda, and then some other fun tags and dies. Of course I had to use some of the beautiful ribbons from thie September Ribbon Club Assortment, aren't they sweet?! Love the web ribbon, and the ghost and kitties on the orange one. I did add the stripe one to the bottom of the bag as a border.

Tilda is one of many stamps I have of her, and this one is absolutely darling! She was colored using Copic markers, then I fussy cut her out so she could sit on the border of pumpkins. That pumpkin border was some random stuff I had from the warehouse sale from American Crafts. The Potion bottle is CottageCutz dies, and fits perfectly on my treat bag. The little bat was a potion bottle top and I cut it down to use just the bat. Super fun treat bag to make! Of course Lilybean is the sweetest, she is just hanging out to photo bomb my photo....heheeh - Love her!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Halloween Assortment
Halloween Critters
Spider Webs on Black
Delicate Stitched Ribbon
Striped Grosgrain Black
Foam Squares
scotch advanced tape refill

other supplies:

Cherish Family

What a treat to have you stop by today!  It's Karen sharing today, and I'm so glad you're here because today I'm sharing a warm and welcoming Autumn card and two matching mini albums that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I apologize that this will be a very long post because I took a photo of every page in the mini albums.  Sorry!

For my card, I started with some sweet patterned papers, stickers and chipboard from an Echo Park line called I Love Family.  I used white Bazzill Basics for my card base, and then I layered a couple of the patterned papers.  I ran a length of the 1/2" Burgundy Wrinkle Ribbon just off the center left on my card.  I used the 1/2" Burgundy Wrinkle Ribbon1/2" Olive Wrinkle Ribbon and a piece of Cream Seam Binding to make my bow.
I also added some White Double Head  Mini Stamens, Red Double Head Mini Stamens, Blue Double Head Mini StamensMatcha Green Double Head Mini Stamens, and I topped that with a 15 mm Green Mulberry Leaf20mm Brown Mulberry Leaf, an Orange Open End Rose, a Burgundy Open End Rose and a Light Mocha Open End Rose.  I just LOVE how all the sweet Mulberry Flowers elevate our cards and projects, and give them such amazing texture and life.

Next, I made two coordinating mini albums from the same Echo Park line.  I used a large glassine bag for each mini album.  You can incorporate multiple glassine bags for this project, but today's minis use just one bag each.  I decorated the pages with the patterned papers, stickers and chipboard as well as some other ephemera (journalling spots, tickets, etc.) and some photo spots so that someone can simply pop a few family photos in there...and you have a cute little family memory album.

The pockets provided by the glassine bag gave me one more place to tuck in a photo/journal mat into each album.  I didn't embellish them much.   and secured lengths of Olive Wrinkle Ribbon to the front and back so that I have a tie enclosure for the album for when it's being stored.  The page below shows the left side of the open album.  There's a bit of Ivory Burlap String at the bottom of this page, and it's topped with a sticker.
Page 2, or the right-hand side of the open mini album, gives you a peek at the pocket (to the right) which contains an additional photo/journal mat.  There's lots of extra space for attaching photos, journalling spots and memories.  These make such great little gifts during the holidays, or any time.

On my second glassine bag mini album (pictured below), I added a few Sweethearts Blossoms to the front cover along with a 30mm Green Mulberry Leaf.  And similar to the first album, this one is tied shut with lengths of the pretty 1/2" Ivory Wrinkled Ribbon on each side.

How fun are these little albums?  If you need help finding glassine bags, please let me know.  You can use a simple brown paper lunch bag, or any kind of bag.  I just like the soft, pretty feel of these super sweet, thin little bags.  A few miniature rusty paper clips, woodgrain washi tape, some chipboard, a few journalling spots here and!
This is a peek at the left-hand side of the open album.  There aren't any additional Really Reasonable Ribbon products inside this mini album because I wanted to keep them fairly flat.  Lots of paper, lots of places for tucking in precious memories.
The next photo (below) is the right-hand side of the open album, a.k.a. Page 3.  This is also very simple, and gives a peek at the journalling card that goes in the pocket.  It's sticking out just enough for you to get a peek at it.
And finally...the last photo I'm sharing is the back cover of the album.  You can always see that pretty 1/2" Ivory Wrinkled Ribbon showing.  It's GORGEOUS, just like all of the ribbons and trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon.
Thanks again for stopping by today.  I hope you'll remember to join us on the 13th of this, and every month, for our fun BLOG HOP.  We always love to have you join the fun for your chance to win the Ribbon Club Assortment for the month...not to mention a lot of wonderful inspiration as well.  There's always something happening at Really Reasonable Ribbon, so be sure to stop by often.

Trick or Treat Halloween Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share some not so spooky inspiration with you.  Yes I know it's early....but what can I say I love Halloween!
I super love this Bold Check Ribbon on holiday cards. Seems to work for Christmas projects  too lol!
I'm also using the Ivory Burlap String to create a layered look for this bow.
This Twilight collection from Authentique is my new favorite. What's not to like..there's stripes and dots and spooky images.
I created these flowers to get a perfect match for this festive holiday card. The stamens are from RRR and they are the perfect finishing touch.
Last but not least is a glittery die cut frame, metal charms, and a vintage button.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Bold Check Black, Ivory Burlap String, Double Headed Stamen Black.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

*NEW* September Ribbon Club Assortment at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there ribbon lovers!  It's September (already!!), so we are introducing an all NEW Ribbon Club Assortment today here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Since Autumn and Halloween are quickly approaching, why not enroll today and grab this August/September Ribbon Club Special Deal and be set for the autumn holidays!

Not a member yet?
The August and September assortments each contain 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed mix.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

Just because the September assortment is Halloween themed doesn't mean all you can make is Halloween projects.

This time I made a Thank You card, but it could just as easily work for any occasion by just switching out the sentiment.  I created the background paper with Distress Inks.  They are so much fun to work with. 

My bottom layer is a white mulberry paper which I think adds such a wonderful unique touch to my cards.

For a video tutorial on how I use mulberry paper on my projects, please click HERE.

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All Tool using two of the ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I topped off the center of my bow with a pretty 10mm Resin Flower embellishment.

For a video tutorial on how to create this pretty bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.  Have a crafty weekend!

Happy Labor Day!

Hi friends! Linsey here today--you may remember me from being on the team before. I took a short break to help with some family stuff and I'm really happy to be back! I thought I'd share a fun patriotic project I made that using lots of ribbons in red and white, along with some lace trims. It's a denim and ribbon USA flag and here it is in all its glory!
This project was pretty easy and I love the results. I think it would look great displayed for any patriotic holiday and it makes a nice addition to an Americana home d├ęcor. Here's how I made it...
Find an old pair of jeans or any denim fabric that you are willing to cut up. Cut a rectangle piece of denim the size you want for the "stars" portion of the flag. The stars can be stamped onto the fabric or, in my case, I used a star-shaped stencil and white acrylic paint. I found it to work well.
After it dried, I framed the denim stars portion with Natural Crochet Lace. Allow a ribbon across the top to go as far out as you want you "stripes" to be. Then, start adding strips of red and white ribbons and trims, alternating colors. Some of the ribbons and trims I used include: 3/8" Swiss Dots Grosgrain Red, 5/8" Double Faced Red Satin, 5/8" Plaid Ribbon Houndstooth Red and White, Red 3/8" Ric Rac, 1/2" White Wrinkled Ribbon, Red Chevron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Satin Swiss Dots Ribbon Red, Delicate Stitched Satin Red, Delicate Stitched Satin White, Crosshatch on Red Satin Ribbon, Checkerboard Satin Red, Checkerboard Satin Off-White, Satin with Stitched Center Ribbon, and various White Crocheted Lace.
To adhere, you can either use a hot glue gun or double sided red tape. Of course, any other adhesive you think will work well can be used also. Just make sure it will stick for the long run, as this piece can be enjoyed for years, if properly made and stored/displayed. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you're enjoying you Labor Day and I wish you a wonderful week! Until next time, happy crafting!

Swingin' By Triple Easel Card

Hello, Friends!  I thought I'd just swing on by today with a super cute and cheery triple easel card.

With fall peeping around the corner, the squirrels in my back yard have been hustling and bustling around stocking their pantries with acorns.  This inspired me to create a super cute triple easel card with bright cheery, colors.

I found the perfect playmate for this card in 1/2"  Orange, Fuchsia and Lavender Checkered Ribbon. 

This ribbon ties the most beautiful bows!  Loopy burlap string bows match the kraft cardstock base, and lend a nice, woodsy feel to the ribbon cluster. 

My hand made flowers are died to match the ribbon, but you can find some great Wild Orchard Crafts Flowers in the RRR Shop.

I used burlap string a second time to tie these cute miniature acorns on the sentiment panel.  It's just amazing how a little bit of ribbon or fiber can make an embellishment come to life.

This was my first attempt at making a triple easel card.  After a little trial and error, I came up with a method that worked well for me.  So I created a little video tutorial to share with you here today.  This is just for building the triple easel card base, not for adding the card layers or embellishments.  I hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thank you card

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! today I have a special card I made for a special someone to say Thank you! Made this one using all Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers and ribbons. Love making thank you cards and using the beautiful ribbons from RRR store.

On my card for today I chose to use the beautiful Delicate Stitched(One of my many favs) in Mineral Ice color. I made two bows and set them close to each other when gluing them down. Next I placed the beautiful Chelsea Rose in pink on the green leaves, and then using other flowers I added them all. I will list them all below.

So I have to tell ya, that I had this little girl stamped up and colored in other colors, so that motivated or gave me inspiration for this one. I stamped her in club scrap black ink, and then colored her with copic markers. It was so much fun, I need to get stamping again, and use my stamps.
The thank you stamp is from Our Daily bread and is an old one. Its stamped in black too. My design papers came from a paper pad that is a 6 x 6 and I cant remember the name.

I really enjoyed making my card for today, and Hope you enjoyed my post! thank you so much!

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies used:
Chelsea Rose
Green Leaves
Delicate Stitched Satin Mineral Ice
Foam squares
scotch advanced Tape runner refill
Rose buds in pink and the yellows
sweetheart blossom
Mini open Rose
Cosmo Daisy

Hugs to all,
