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!

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 


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.

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.

Bunny Bags & Ribbons

Hello crafty friends and Happy Monday to you all! Today I wanted to share a couple of things I've made for Easter using Really Reasonable Ribbon in Satin.

My projects are sewn but I used the Gorgeous Satin Ribbons in 7/8" and 5/8" for both bags here.
So my first bag is the large one its a drawstring bag I made and used lots of the 7/8" in Hot Pink for the drawstring. 

Next is the little bunny treat bag I made, these I made for our club meeting and will fill with homemade treats. I used the white 5/8" satin from RRR on this to tie around the ears and create a bow. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today using Really Reasonable Ribbon! Thank you so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
Hugs to all,

Springtime Garden Slimline Card Folio

Kathy Clement, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Prima In Full Bloom, Slimline Card Folio

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to my springtime garden!  It's bursting with beautiful spring blossoms and trimmed out with lovely pastel spring ribbons from the RRR shop.  I've used two of my favorite ribbons to adorn this 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" slimline card folio: Buttercup Double Faced Satin and Coral Rose Mini Check Ribbon.  What a pretty color combination they make!

To create the ribbon border on this card, run 1/2" Scor-Tape about 3/4" inch from the left hand edge.  Then cut a slightly longer piece of Buttercup Double Faced Satin Ribbon and press in place.  The long ends will wrap around your card panel, leaving a neat clean edge.  You can repeat this with the Coral Rose mini check ribbon.
Now add a pretty bouquet of Mulberry Flowers to complete our paper garden.  I chose Mixed Pastel Magnolias, Mixed Pink Trellis Roses, and a Mixed Pastel Sweetheart Blossom to add to our garden.  I  hope that cute little bunny doesn't get to them before I get them potted!  

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!  Wishing  you lots of sunshine and creativity!

Have a Blessed Easter

Welcome by my blog, everyone, and thanks for visiting me.  I'm sharing a sweet card that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using some of their fabulous ribbons and trims, Adhesives and other goodies.  It's always fun creating cards that incorporate trims, Mulberry Flowers and many of the other fabulous touches you'll find at RRR.  They're still flat enough to mail, but ribbons add so much texture and fun to cards and projects.
My first card uses white cardstock layered with some older Crate Paper patterned papers.  The darling Easter sentiments I used (on both cards as well as the bookmark) are from the Religious Easter Bundle from Bonnie Garby Designs.  You can find so many great digital stamp sets at Bonnie Garby Designs.  I used a postage stamp die-cut set to cut all the layers of patterned papers.  I ran a length of Sharon White Crochet Lace across my first card and a length of Apple Green Baker's Twine.  I topped the bow with a pretty Yellow Sweetheart Blossom by using some Scor-Tape Adhesive.
The second card is very similar and again uses the same dies to layer the patterned papers.  I ran a length of Lemon Baker's Twine around my second card, and I attached several Sweetheart Blossoms to this card as well.  The Lemon Baker's Twine was strung through a sweet 16mm Faux Pearl Heart Shaped Buckle Slide.  I also used some vintage scotch tape and lots of Scor-Tape to secure everything in place. The floral stamp and die-cut set I used on my first card are from Stamp Simply.
The bookmark was cut using scraps of the same patterned papers.  I added some Green Apple & White Gingham Ribbon to the bookmark along with more of the Sharon White Crochet Lace and some Solid Ivory Baker's Twine that was strung through the yellow button.  The sentiment, which is also from Bonnie Garby Designs, got some extra color and pizzazz by using Mowed Grass & Lemonade Oxide Inks and a Tim Holtz Stencil.  There's always a perfect trim at Really Reasonable Ribbon to help you create and tuck in a cute bookmark with your cards.
We hope you'll check out the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for lots of great ribbon inspiration and news about special sales and promotions at RRR.  Thanks again for taking the time to visit me here today and please stop by again soon.  I'm always super grateful for your visits here, and I love hearing your thoughts about my cards.  Have a blessed week, and please be sure to share your art in lots of fun challenges.

Cute Critters Hairbow

 Hello!  Happy Monday!  Misty here with you today sharing my latest ribbon creation.  I decided that I wanted to make a fun little bow in honor of Spring...and in hopes that it comes quickly :) With the perfect ribbons and some cute critter buttons, I set to work. 

I absolutely love the Double Ruffle Satin these are the ones I reached for first.  The brown, fuchsia, and green apple colors were actually perfect for what I had in mind.  (Psssst... here's a secret-These are not only the last colors remaining in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop, but they are also sale!)
I also grabbed a few patterned grosgrains ribbons. The 7/8 inch BabyBlue Swiss Dots, the 3/8 inch Garden Rose Swiss Dots, the 3/8 inch Funky Squares in Sunflower, and the 3/8 inch Capri Blue Chevron. I love picking just the perfect ribbons to create my projects. This assortment was not something I would normally mix together, but when it comes to hair bows...nothing is off limits! 

Once my ribbon was gathered, I  dug into my stash of buttons and pulled out a few little critter buttons. A snail, a ladybug, a frog, a bubble bee, and of adorable turtle sits on top in the center.  I simply glued these cute critters in place once I had finished the bow.


I fell in love with how this bow turned out! Those critters, though!!! They are so cute, and I am super excited that the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store had the PERFECT colors and ribbons to match! 
I was looking at the store, and I am thinking maybe a Zoo themed hair bow with zebra and giraffe printed ribbons, or even a Mermaid or beach themed hair bow next.  Y'all help me decide!!
