Thank you with flowers!

Good morning! Angela here, and it's my last post as Guest Designer for RRR June! I want to thank Bonnie for inviting me to be a guest designer and for the opportunity to become familiar with the beautiful ribbons of RRR. I have enjoyed every minute of it! Here's my Thank you card! 

 After die cutting two layers of the SB Labels Eighteen (the K& Company center panel) I used my "this bow will never fall off your project" technique to secure the Sheer Two Tone Stripe 1/2" Olive/Celery ribbon. I then tucked the loose ends up and added the Sheer Ombre 5/8" Kiwi/Watermelon ribbon florets with glue dots. (see flower tutorial below)

1/2" wide
5/8" wide; sheer ombre organza, 

Card ingredients: Spellbinders Labels One (for card and outer layer), Labels Sixteen for center, Fancy Tags Two (trimmed and cut in half for center panel decor), Quickutz Oval tag, Recollections pearls, Verve "Thank You".

Have a Wonderful Summer and Happy Crafting! 
Hugs,  Angela.

Birthday Fishes

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a great week! 
I have a fun shaped card for you today.
This file is from the Silhouette Store.  I used my Designer Edition software to weld two fish bowls together to create the card base.  I added some orange hemp cord and a button.  I love this looks so cut with buttons and really dresses up a project without making it too feminine.  I added some clear gem "bubbles.

You can find more details on my blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are My Treasure Card

Happy Thursday Everyone... 
Linda here and I cant wait for the weekend to come, to have a relaxing day to just do nothing and scrap all weekend! And for today, I would like to share with you a card creation using your favorite RRR collections!

I used 7/8 inch Bright Pink Gingham ribbon to create double bow-tie and layered with die cut paper flowers with matching color. Pink is really one of my favorite go to colors lately! 
White acrylic paint was used as distresser on the card edges and here is the detail photo of the card;

Life Is A Beach

Hey Everyone! It's Emily here again from Create Serendipity. Today I have another fun altered project to share! 

Have you ever shopped the $ spot at Target? I LOVE shopping there! Not only is everything $1 (or $2.50 for some bigger items), but they are full of really cool trinkets & things for kids as well as fun alterable items! I picked up this little tray there this past Spring. I've been holding on to it, actually, I was using it to hold stickers, but decided it would serve a better purpose as a home decor piece!

I love anything beachy. My whole living room is decorated in a beach theme, so this project fits perfectly! Aren't the little crabs cute?

I decided to make a little banner that said "Beach" and clip it to some jute with some mini clothes pins. Since this tray had handles, I tied the jute to each side and made the banner pop a little for a dimensional effect.

Make sure you stop by my blog for more details!

RRR Products Used:
Jute String White, 1.5" Champagne Netting

Decorated Strawberry Box/To hold Mini

 Toilet Paper Album
Hello everyone, Cheryl here with a decorated strawberry container from the grocery store.  I decorated it with Really Reasonable Ribbon to hold a Toilet Paper Mini Album.

For my box I used Pink Satin in 3/8", 5/8", 7/8".  I also used RRR Estelle Lace for around the memories.  I made some leaves with green seam binding too.

I really needed a case to give this mini away in and thought the strawberry container would work perfect if cleaned and decorated it.  So now I'm saving these containers too :) hehehehehehee

For the top I added some flowers,wedding stems, feathers and the Memories is CottageCutz Sugar & Cream Alphabet die.

Here is what the container looked like before I decorated it.  It's the perfect size for a Toilet Paper Mini Album!!!

Supplies Used:
Helmars Premium Craft Glue/450 quick dry
Wild Orchid flowers
Wedding stems
Buttons/Feathers/wedding stems
dp is leftover from the album

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!!
Hugs to all,
Cheryl W

Color Combos

Well, it's the day of the week that we all look forward too, NOT! Monday, but I hope to brighten the day by sharing a page with some beautiful ribbon! I don't know about you, but I have a few color combinations that I seem to gravitate toward. Blue and Brown, Pink and Black and of course Black and Red. So I thought I would use the gorgeous black satin ribbon and some of the red from the Ribbon Club assortment of the month.

This is a picture of our daughter and I loved the contrast of the black dress and the bright red lipstick!! She models for and this was during a calendar signing. I added some mixed blooms and a few little butterflies and the page was done. This was a really simple page, but has an elegant look to it. I think the color combo does it!!!

I made a double bow from the red and black ribbon and put one of the butterflies right on top of the bow.

This just shows the double bow from another angle. By placing the butterfly on top it covers the bulky part where the bows are tied together.

This just shows the single pieces of ribbon that go up the side. I just clustered the blooms and the bow together with a couple of chippie pieces.

Maybe this will inspire you to go back to your favorite color combo and pull out some coordinating ribbon and start playing!!! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what we have to inspire you!!! Thanks for dropping by!

Good Morning!  
Happy Sunday to you all!
What a Beautiful day here in Texas after a week FULL of rain, rain, and more RAIN!
Seriously, every day we had thunderstorms.
And on Wednesday, we laid my Grandmother to rest and showers poured even then.
My 6 year old said "Those are God's tears, Mom.  He is sad that you are so sad."
The things that come out of the mouthes of babes. 
Then, on the way home...after the rain...this was what we saw...

And I felt Peace.
And I knew it was all going to be ok.
It was God's Masterpiece.

And THAT was the inspiration for todays card.
I could not get the rainbow image out of my I decided to put it on a card.
And the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson was absolutely PERFECT to go along with the direction I wanted this card to go.
And of course...It is a rain BOW right???
I used the bow easy tool to help with that...
I tied a bow at the end of every ribbon of the my rainbow.
The various colors of double ruffle ribbon were perfect to add texture to my card.

And with that, I tell you, Have a WONDERFUL Sunday, and I hope your day is full of sunshine and rainbows!!!!

Thanks for visiting us today!

Gussy up those bags!

Hi there! I am here today to share a tutorial for Really Reasonable Ribbon. I thought I would share how to gussy up a few of the sweet Middy biddy kraft polka dot bags. I gathered up my goodies...and went to work starting out with a large doily, some kraft envelopes, and some of the yummy natural burlap ribbon in teal. I also gathered up a few embellishments of course! I adhered my ribbon, doily, and envelope first. I cut my burlap ribbon into a dovetail at the end. I also used some white ink around the edges of the envelope to shabby them up. I used a few digital images from etsy and stitched around the edges and adhered them. I added my 3d stickers (butterflies/birds) and some buttons for fun. On the one envelope I also added some Penelope crochet lace as well. It was time for my big chunky bow at the top of each and other than that a few velvet hydrangias and I was done! These are large enough to add several cards to or a bag of candy. Hope you have enjoyed! hugs, cherry

Lacy Layers

This week with some friends I did some recycling with dryer sheets. You can read all about it and find the tutorial link on my blog here.
I used Cherry Cobbler reinker (I know it looks peach, but I really did use CC!) with some water in a spray bottle, and then sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist for my dryer sheet flower. It is more a background for my paper roses.

Click on the photo for a close-up view. I added three rows of beautiful Penelope Natural Crocheted Lace. I love the vintage look of the design in this lace! You can find this and many more beautiful lace trims in the RRR Store HERE.
