Raggedy Sweethearts Pages


Hello crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all. Cheryl here today to share a 2 page layout I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Gorgeous Satin Ribbons in different sizes. Lately Ive been addicted to creating scrapbook pages again, and I love this one! I have photos below showing close ups as well.


So for my pages I chose to use the Satin Pink 1/4" and 5/8" ribbon to use. I also I used lots of scar-tap and foam squares to add my layers. The SVG's are from Marjorie Ann and I put them together , inked up and did their faces, aren't they sweet? Just love these pages! 

Now below is a pocket I added a window to, for the soda sweet shop....hehehehe and a mini Raggedy sweetheart is peeping through the window, darling huh? I am so please and can't wait to add some photos to this page set.



I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day! Hugs to all, Cheryl W

Teal and Tan Tea Card with Mixed Earth Tone Flowers

 

Really Reasonable Ribbon-Mixed Earth Tone Flowers-Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon-Stamperia Brocante-Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Teal and Tan is one of my favorite color combos.  It's vintage, and rich and very restful on the eyes.  I've combined some gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon Champagne Wrinkled Ribbon with a lush cluster of Mixed Earth Tone Mulberry Flowers to adorn this shabby chic easel card.

If you are not familiar with Wrinkled Ribbon, I can tell  you it's one of my favorites to work with.  The narrower, 1/2" width and the light texture makes for beautiful bows.  Best of all, it comes in a rainbow of colors!  Champagne is one of my favorite shades because it can take on more of a pink hue when used with pink papers, or more of a beige hue, as you see here.  

The neutral bouquet on this card features Mixed Earth Tone Magnolias, 35mm Trellis Roses, 20mm Open Roses, and Mixed Earth Tone Chrysanthemums.  I did not want the orangey center in the Chrysanthemum, so I just painted it with cream chalk paint.  

The crocheted lace panel came from my stash.  I attached it to the card with a bit of 1/4" Scor-TapeFoam Tabs added to the back of the tea service die cuts add a lovely bit of dimension. 

I hope I've shared some tips and ideas that you can use in your next crafty adventure.

Thanks for stopping by, friends!

Cheerio,

kathy

My Grace Is Sufficient For You

Welcome by again today, sweet blog friends.  I'm glad you're here because today I'm sharing a pretty card that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon showcasing just a few of their (many) fabulous trims.  When we think about Really Reasonable Ribbon, of course ribbons and trims come to mind first.  That makes sense because RRR carries every ribbon, trim, twine, lace, etc. you can imagine.  Plus, they carry things like AdhesivesMulberry Flowers, Hair Accessories, Embellishments and SO much more.
My card uses black and dusty rose cardstocks for the base and then a layer of patterned paper from My Mind's Eye.  I used a stencil on the background, stamped the scripture using a Verve stamp, and then pressure embossed that white piece of cardstock with the Organic Linen Embossing Folder from Altenew.  Everything was attached with Scor-Tape, 3-D Foam Tabs or the hot glue gun.
I attached the sentiment piece using White 3-D Foam Tabs.  Next, I ran a length of Bay Leaf Seam Binding up the left-hand side card of my card next to a length of Dusty Rose Wrinkle Ribbon and some bundled Metallic Gold String.  Isn't that Metallic Gold String gorgeous?  I topped that with a beautiful Light Pink Tea Rose and two Moss Green Open Roses.  I also tucked in a pretty Green  Mulberry Leaf.
Be sure to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for lots of great inspiration and up-to-date information about special sales and promotions.  You'll always find something wonderful when you shop at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Thanks again for visiting today.

Blessings,

Magnets For Mom Card

 Hello and Happy Wednesday! 
Misty (@Mommyofkidz) here with you sharing a cute and functional card. 
Not only does this card scream "Spring" beauty all over it,
 it also holds secret refrigerator magnets for holding small notes, photos, or mementos.


I started with some mini clothespins and some
 15mm Mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon. 
I also ended up using some Light Satin Coral Silk ribbon
that I had not originally planned to use. I decided to
 toss in a tiny bow at the last minute for a bit more "flair". :) 

For the refrigerator magnets, I simply glued two of the mulberry roses to a clothespin.  On the backside, I glued tiny magnets that I picked up at Amazon.
I used a cardstock sticker from a Simple Stories collection that I mounted onto thicker cardstock and then popped it up with 3 layers of craft foam.  I used 3 layers in order to give it the lift it would need for the magnets to be able to easily clip to the center to form the "flower"

Finally, I added the bow and then the sentiment on the inside of the gatefold card.  I chose this sentiment because the intention of the card is for the recipient to post the mementos that are close to their heart. 
While the card that I made is for my Mom, it can easily be for any special person in your life. 
 See...my Mom had a stroke last June, and has lost a large amount of memory.  The doctors said that it is mostly written and verbal language that she would not remember. However, we ha
ve found that her  memory of people and events has also been affected. The most effective way that I have found to help her memory return and remember the people is by showing her photographs.
She does not pull out albums, as she quite honestly doesn't think to do it.
However, I found a way to keep photos in front of her at all times. 
I made some pretty magnets to hold snapshots of all the people that she is still struggling to remember. They can co on the fridge, the mirror in her bathroom, the shelf by her washing machine, etc.

There truly are so many beautiful reasons to be happy.  
By giving this to my Mom, along with photos to hang, 
I hope that she will remember this.  And, hopefully, begin remember the loved ones that her mind has not been able to yet.  Also, it will hopefully inspire you to create something beautiful for someone who may need a gentle reminder of how loved they are, and how beautiful life truly is. 
Thank you for stopping by today! 
Hop on over the the Really Reasonable Ribbon store and fill your basket with some gorgeous goodies for your next ribbon project!

Life in Full Bloom with Lilac Seam Binding Ribbon

Simple Stories Vintage Spring Garden-Lilac Seam Binding-Kathy Clement-Kathy by Design

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Garden season is almost here, and this sweet image of terra cotta pots is an ode to garden lovers everywhere.  Lavender Seam Binding Ribbon and White Chrysanthemums were the perfect companions for this springtime card. 




I love to use ribbon inside my card folios, too.  It's fun looking for ways to incorporate it into the card design.   It really dresses up the little tag that I tucked into the pocket. Topping it off with a lavender Sweetheart Blossom made it extra special. 


 On this card, I turned the seam binding ribbon into a gift by wrapping it around a button card.  Then I added a length of my favorite Buttercup Double Faced Satin to the button card to make it really shine. There are so many different shades of yellow out there, but this Buttercup yellow is soft and rich.  I use it on a lot of my springtime and baby projects because it's "just right." 

I'm wishing each one of you a blessed and joyful Easter weekend with your friends and or families.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy

Bunny Butts With Bows

 YES! That is exactly what my kids have decided to call my latest project!  All of them, at some point during the creation process, have walked in, stood over my shoulder, and after watching for a few minutes, proclaimed, "SOOO You are making Bunny Butts." 

Hi, Y'all! Misty (@Mommyofkidz) here with you today! With Easter coming up SUPER quick, I thought I would share another little decor project that I did.  You already know it is Bunnies...SOOOO...

When the bunnies were finished, I set them out on my porch and my older son walked into the house talking on the phone.  I overheard him say to his girlfriend, "My Mom finished her Bunny Butts.  They now have Bows." And that became the name of this project! LOL 

Introducing:

Bunny Butts with Bows


These were easy to make, just time consuming. I guess I could have cut the time in half if I had chosen to make only ONE, but what is the fun in that?  This way, I have twin sister Bunny Butts! 

The bunnies and the sentiments can all be found at Bonnie Garby Designs or on the Cricut Access Membership site.  I loaded these onto my canvas, enlarging the bunnies to 11x23 and the sentiments to 8x3 (Easter) and 8x4 (Spring). I then set to cutting them on vinyl. 





I also cut the bunnies out using Balsa Wood, which I then applied the vinyl bunnies as overlays on the the balsa. 
Once the bunnies were built, I simply had to assemble some cute little bows for them, and adhere them.
Easy Peasy!  
For the ribbons, I used the Netting Trim in Yellow and Lavender, 5/8 Sunflower Satin, and the Sheer Cherry Hyacinth.  I also have some Mulberry Flowers from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store mixed in there along with the other florals from my stash. 


ALL of my kids have made comments about these little decorations. I can't decide if they are making fun of me or if they actually like them.  Oh Well! Either way...I LOVE THEM!
I hope you enjoy them, too! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!  You can create this or your own Easter decorations using ribbon! Just head on over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store and start filling your cart!

He Is The Light

Hello and welcome to everyone stopping by the RRR Blog.  It's your friend, Karen Letchworth posting today.  Please know that we're always very grateful for your visits.  Any time that I can make a card and adorn it with some type of ribbon or trim, it opens up a whole world of different creative options, and Really Reasonable Ribbon always makes it easy and fun.  I hope the card I'm sharing today will inspire you to get creative with ribbons.  They're just so pretty and they add so much texture and excitement to our art.
For this card, I started with basic black cardstock that I layered with a yellow patterned paper from JilliBean Soup.  Next, I cut a frame from white cardstock using the Crimped Frames Die from The Greetery.  I inked the edges and I stencilled the background using a Tim Holtz lines stencil in Fossilized Amber Oxide Ink.  I'm sorry to say that I don't know what company makes the light bulb dies I used as they're not in their original packaging.
The sentiment I used is found in the He Is The Light Stamp Set from Stamp Simply.  At the bottom of my card, I ran a length of Black & White Bold Plaid Ribbon and I also tied a pretty bow with it.  Underneath the bow, I added some bundled Yellow Burlap String and several pretty Double Head Stamens.  I topped it all with a White Carnation using a cut piece of Scor-Tape.  The screw-in part of the light bulbs (two layers) were raised up using 3-D Foam Tabs for dimension.
Be sure to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for lots of great inspiration as well as information about special sales and promotions.  We're always here to help, to inspire, and to answer any questions we can.  Whether you need ribbons and trims, Adhesives, Mulberry Flowers or Embellishments, you're almost always sure to find it all when you shop RRR.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, everyone.  Have a great week.

Blessings,
Karen

Eat Cake Fun Fold Card

Hello crafty friends, and Happy Thursday to you all! Cheryl here today with a fun fold Birthday card to share that Ive created for Really Reasonable Ribbon and KaDoodle Bug Designs. I used the Beautiful Satin ribbon for my bows in two different sizes. 

So my card today I designed using 6" x 12" pink card stock and scored at 6" and then 9" and then fold the 6" valley, and 9" mountain fold. Next I cut another piece of pink card stock that measures 5" wide, and 6" tall. that will be the front of the card. Then decorate. I used the darling Unicorn from KaDoodle Bug Designs and added a different muzzle and different eyes from another SVG from KaDoodle Bug. I use the matching tag and then some beautiful Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon , 5/8" and 3/8" Pink , to put my card together I used foam tabs & scor-tape , and then foam dots. For the pink dew drops I used Robins Nest Dew drops. Ooo don't forget the sewing, I just had to add that too.
