Hi everyone.  I'm excited to say that we are teaming up with Crafty Secrets this month.  Each post for the next week will feature products from Crafty Secrets along with beautiful ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  A match made in heaven!

There are so many fabulous goodies available at Crafty Secrets that I had a hard time making my selections.  Today I used the Digital Flowers Printable Sheet along with Grand Greetings Digital Stamp set.

I printed the digital image and sentiment on ivory cardstock and inked all the edges with gathered twigs Distress Ink.  I also added some natural mulberry paper which I love.  My beautiful bows were made with my Bow-it-All V2.0 tool using ribbons from my April assortment.  To view all my bow making videos, please visit my YouTube channel.

The colors on this digital image worked perfectly with the colors in the new April Ribbon Club Assortment.  I just love an aqua and coral color palette - looks like spring!

Be sure to hop over to the Crafty Secrets Blog and visit them this month too.  Their design team will be showcasing projects featuring Crafty Secrets designs along with the April Ribbon Club Assortment this month.  It will be fun to see what they create as well.

You'll be seeing lots more Crafty Secrets designs on my Make Time to Craft Blog in the next few months.  I hope you'll visit me there.

  5. This is such a gorgeous creation Bonnie. I have always loved this bird image and you embellished it perfectly with your gorgeous ribbon. Thanks so much for your generosity supplying us with the aqua and coral mix ribbon selections. The ribbon is high quality and ties so beautifully. The package is so perfectly coordinated, as I said in my blog it would take days of shopping to match all these ribbons. Once again, thankyou!
