Cupcake Decorated with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Monday to you all! Today I have a super fun project.  It's a Magnetic Cupcake Pin Cushion/Scissor holder, and also holds my crafting dies as I don't want to lose them on my work area. Super fun and decorated with ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
So for the yellow around the edge I used the Delicate Stitched Satin ribbon, and just pulled two end strings to ruche it up. Next I used the same ribbon to create the flower for the top, and then used the White Satin Double Ruffled Ribbon with the Lemon Delicate Stitched Satin under it. I then used the elastic ruffled ribbon in pink for the top flower. Love the look of this and loved using the Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon to ruche up and use as a ruffled border around my cupcake.

This cupcake was done on my Dream (sewing) Machine in the hoop, and I decorated it using all beautiful supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Really Reasonable Ribbon:
Satin White Double Ruffled Ribbon
Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon Lemon
Elastic Double Ruffled Ribbon
Embellishment flowers

Other supplies
Dream Machine
In the hoop embroidery
Hot glue
sewing pins and needle
Stuffing
and fabrics.




It's nice to have the cupcakes by my side, and it helps to hold things that are magnetic to it, so I don't lose them. In the craft room it's nice to hold little dies, as we all know how we can misplace those. Anyway, this was so much fun to make and decorate. Hope you enjoyed my post for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by and Hope you have a lovely week!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

You Are My Sunshine Greeting Card

Hello there friends! Ginny here to share a card I created with one of my very favorite trims from RRR. Plaid  has been my go to ribbon for so long and one of the reasons is that it ties into the most perfect bows!

 This pink plaid matches my card perfectly!
Speaking of pink isn't it striking when paired with black?
I've got oodles of pretty WOC flowers here also from RRR. This arrangement has die cut foliage and loopy twine bows.

Spacers between the layers is necessary when combining this many patterns. I've gone for a double border here and added spacers between for depth.
Last but not least is a pretty intricate charm secured with a vintage button.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~Pink Plaid Ribbon, Ivory Burlap String, White Rose Buds, Chelsea RosesChrysanthemums,

Wishing you a happy and productive day : ) G

#COFFEE Makes Me Happy

Hello there, blog friends!  Welcome by today as I share a card that I created using a few of my favorite Really Reasonable Ribbon products.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries, of course, the best and most extensive collection of ribbons, trims, laces, twines and every spooled garnish you can possibly image... as well as many varieties of GORGEOUS Mulberry FlowersStamensMulberry LeavesAdhesivesEmbellishments, and....Oh My!
I used some pretty patterned papers from a Carta Bella line called Spring Market, and I attached them using strips of a fabulous Adhesive called Scor-Tape.  Then, I ran a width of a lovely Natural Crochet Lace across my card.  The journalling card is from October Afternoon, and it already said "Makes Me Happy"...so I just stamped the other sentiment (#COFFEE) and the images. And as always, RRR had all the PERFECT trims and extras to make it fabulous.
To adorn my card, I bundled lengths of Ivory Burlap String and Olive Burlap String, added a cut of Green Center-Stitch Burlap Ribbon, and a piece of Debra Natural Crochet Lace topped with some Pink & White Miniature Double-Head StamensGreen Sweetheart Blossoms and a Mixed Purple Sweetheart Blossom.  These soft sweet touches add SO much to my card, and are just so lovely to look at on our cards.  Why not treat yourself to a few new things today?

Oh, and don't forget about the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop in just THREE DAYS.  It starts on Monday, May 13, and you won't want to miss your chance to win the lovely Ribbon Club Assortment.  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon.

Checkered Ribbon


Hello, Friends!  Kathy here with a little ribbon tip for you today.  Have you seen the new 1/2" Checkered Ribbon in the RRR shop?  Ooh la la!  I'm in love!  



I love everything about this gorgeous checkered ribbon:  the wide range of colors, the width, the texture and how easy it is to tie gorgeous bows. 


This green/ivory pink Checkered ribbon looks fabulous perched in the corner of this Bluebirds of Happiness card.


Here's a peek inside the card.  


If you haven't "checked" this ribbon out yet, I can highly recommend it, as I may or may not have bought several yards of it in each color.  It's a nice change from ordinary plaid or gingham, and the color blends are really fun.

So that's my ribbon tip for today!  Hope you have a joyful and creative day!

Cheerio,
kathy

Rolodex Decorated Pages with Photos


Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all you all! Today I'm sharing a super fun project that I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using beautiful ribbons, flowers, and embellishments to decorate this Rolodex.

I bought this Rolodex to add photos and information in, so these two pages have a photo and a little Journaling. They are so fun to decorate and add design paper.  I figured I would do different colors and such to each double page. On this one I used one of my favorite design papers from Heidi Swapp.  They were scrap pieces I had left over.  I added the black delicate stitched satin ribbon, and then the yellow canvas color band ribbon, and aster daisy, sweetheart blossom, and rose buds for decorations on this. I also added the bronze and green leaves to this.

The bottom page has a border die cut I used from Makers Movement and I ran the ribbon through the openings on it. Love the look. I kept the top simple, as I wanted to see the design of the flowers on the paper.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Pink Rose buds
Aster Daisy
Sweetheart Blossoms
Green Leaves
Bronze Leaves
Black Satin Delicate Stitched Ribbon
Swiss Dots Black
Tape Runner
Yellow Canvas Color Band Ribbon
Thank you so much for stopping by, and for all your wonderful sweet comments on my projects!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl

You are my Sunshine Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here with a very spring inspired greeting card. Not that we're getting much spring weather here in mid Michigan. Seems like we skipped the warm and went right back into fall.

 Pink and green? Heck yeah! This card could not be more bright and cheerful.

Stripes might be my new plaid. I seem to be drawn to a lot these days.
 This is a pretty paper collection....but I decided to mix in a few of my stash papers. Not only does this help me work through some of the "backstock" but it also helps me to get a very uniquely me look. That paper in the background is actually Christmas paper lol.
These Wild Orchid Crafts flowers are beautiful and coordinate so perfectly!
Last but not least the Celery Chevron Ribbon.  I am loving this happy combination.

~Really Reasonable Ribbon~ Celery Chevron Striped Twill, Chrysanthemums, Rosebuds, Cottage Roses.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G

M for Mother Vintage Card by Cherry Nelson


Cherry here!  My day at the RRR blog.  I have a vintage style Mother's Day card to share today.



 I did some heat embossing to bring out the sentiments more.


I also heat embossed this heart chipboard charm frame and added a vintage gold charm to the center.


Hope you find yourself inspired today! Cherry

Wait Patiently Upon the Lord

Hello and welcome by!  It's Karen Letchworth here today  sharing a sweet little card today that I created using some lovely products from Really Reasonable Ribbon; and as always, I was able to find the perfect Ribbons and Embellishments to match my patterned papers.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries SO much more than ribbons.  You'd be surprised (if you're not already familiar) to see all the amazing products in their shop - AdhesivesEmbellishmentsMulberry FlowersHair AccessoriesTwinesLaces and all there is at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Here's what I came up with to share with you today.

I used some patterned papers that are from the Pretty Party line by Crate Paper (an old favorite of mine).  I attached the patterned papers with strips of Score-Tape and die-cut a background to lay over that.  I stamped my sentiment onto a coordinating paper tag and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  And then.....the fun part!

I bundled a generous length of Ivory Burlap String and topped that with a Two-Tone Red & White Open Rose, and accented around that with orange and teal flowers from the Open Roses Pastel Assortment.  One (of the many) things I love about the Open Roses and other Mulberry Flowers is that they come in various sizes to accommodate each and every project.  This particular card uses the 10mm Open Roses.  Be sure to stop by the RRR Blog often to see all the wonderful inspiration from my talented teammates.  There's always something wonderful at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Blessings,
Karen

Blooming Beautiful Springtime Altered Art

Hello, Friends!  Kathy here with a bit of springtime altered art to inspire your creativity.  I love little decorative boxes.  So I created this lovely little Eileen Hull Treasure box, then decorated it with lots of blooming springtime flowers and elegant  1/2" Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon.


A little box like this one looks so pretty set out on a coffee table or nightstand.  To add the perfect shabby chic touch,why not run a bit of Crochet Lace around the bottom edge?  It's easy to keep in place when you use 1/8" Scor-Tape to attach it. 


Here's a look at the beautiful bow cluster.  One of the things I love the most about the Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon is the neutral tone.  Here, it fits in perfectly with all the soft pastel flowers.  It's become one of my all time favorite choices for shabby chic projects.



The only thing I like better than a sweet little box is a sweet little box with something pretty inside.  So I created a tiny Eileen Hull Notebook to slip inside the box.

 I've used the same ribbon to create a wrapped closure for this darling little album.



I love the way it looks wrapped around the album spine, too.


I've used it inside the album to decorate a simple page.....


... and to top a little art tag.  

If you haven't added this gorgeous ribbon to your stash yet, I can highly recommend it.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
kathy

Floral Decorated Post it Purse


Hello everyone.  Cheryl here today with a sweet Post-It Note pad purse made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using their gorgeous ribbons, flowers and charms. It's funny, I have had this up in my cabinet for about 4 or 5 years now, and thought hmmm, I need to decorate it. I will also post a before photo of what it looked like before I decorated it.

To start with I chose some design papers I had laying around, and LOVE.  I used Mod Podge to add my design paper, and then used it over the paper once it dried to seal. Then I decided I needed to color the blue in, so I used black Copic marker, and then let it dry and sealed it with Mod Podge as well. 

To decorate I chose ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon that I thought went well with the color scheme here.  The black is satin, and the pink is my favorite of the canvas color band ribbons. I added some Chelsea Roses, Rose Buds, and Open Roses to this beauty. I did also use the green leaves and the bronze leaves to finish this off.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Rose Buds
Chelsea Rose
Rose
Embellishment leaves
Black Checkerboard Satin Ribbon
Canvas colored band ribbon in pink
green leaves

Summer at the Beach Greeting Card

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a card I created with some of the new supplies I picked up with the intention of creating more clean and simple cards. I did not achieve that with this card lol.

This card also has a stamped and colored image.  Wouldn't it be lovely to have a little hut by the beach?  Especially one this bright and cheerful.
The new supply I mentioned is a scalloped stitched frame.  I've been framing everything lol.  I even created 2 large shaker cards.  I'm like a kid with a new puppy.
Even though this is an A2 sized card I was able to work in some fun details like vintage button, sequins, and Prills. 
And of course I can't make a card without flowers and ribbon trims. Even if it is a beach card. Last but not least is a fun nautical compass charm.  If only I had one of these that would always point to the beach!

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
