2 page Layout "So Berry Sweet"

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Monday to you all! DT Member Cheryl here today sharing another fun Layout , 2 pages that was done for our weekly Get IT Done challenge that my dear friend Colleen and I are doing weekly, so hoping to inspire those who love scrapbooking. These were also designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the gorgeous ribbons Bonnie carries in the shop and also using Scor-tape as well to put these together. 

Ive been having so much fun doing these pages and sharing them weekly with you all, and then adding them all to my scrapbooks. These pages here were done using the SVG file from Marjorie Ann Designs called "So Berry Sweet" aren't they the cutest bears ever? Just loved working with them and airbrushing them using the Copic airbrushing technique, and then piecing them together. I did do their eyes and eyelashes and have several videos on YouTube showing this technique if you would like to see, I will LINK here!

 The design papers are a mix of some designs I bought at American crafts warehouse sale several years back, and the borders that are hearts are punched out using the large Martha Stewart Punches. All pieces and layers were attached using Scor-tape from RRR store . Delicate Stitched Satin ribbon was using in pearl pink

I do hope you enjoyed my Layout post today, and thank you so very much for stopping by! Hugs to all, Cheryl

Happiness Blooms Here

Summer Flowers Greeting Card-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement

Hello, Friends!  Spring is in full bloom here in North Carolina, and the flower gardens are starting to show off with beautiful floral displays.  This inspired me to create  a flirty, feminine card featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon Mulberry Flowers, 3/8" Coral rose Mini-Check Ribbon, and Iridescent Metallic String

I've clustered sweet Cherry Blossoms, Trellis Roses, and White Chrysanthemums around my focal image.  Then I added a sweet bow cluster tied with the Coral Rose Mini Check and Iridescent Metallic String.  The mini-check ribbon is also tied through the tops of some tags in a background layer.  Burlap string, a little floral charm and a soft pink Sweetheart Blossom help draw the eye.

Hope you all have a wonderful, restful weekend!

Happy Birthday

Hello sweet blog friends!  It's your ribbon-loving friend, Karen here.  The card I'm sharing with you today is a fun and simple Birthday card that's adorned with a few of the (many) amazing products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  As always, RRR carries the perfect colors, widths and designs of ribbons and trims plus SO much more.
I used kraft cardstock for my base and my sentiment square.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Verve Stamps (yes, an oldie but a goodie).  I placed a sweet little Faux Pearl Heart Accent on the journalling spot.  There are lots of cute Embellishments at RRR as well as AdhesivesMulberry Flowers and more.  I also added a white doily underneath the sentiment.  I used plenty of Scor-Tape to secure everything.
A pretty piece of Pink & White Gingham ribbon runs up the left-hand side of my card and I also used that to tie a pretty bow.  It's topped with a length of Light Blue Baker's Twine.  I also tucked in a few Double Head Stamens and on top, a few Sweetheart Blossoms.  A few little stick pins were the finishing touches.
There's always lots of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog as well as information about special sales and promotions and our monthly Blog Hop so be sure to stop by often.  Thanks so much for your visit today, and happy crafting.

Celebrate Spring Card

 Hello friends.  Today I'm sharing a pretty spring greeting card that's embellished with some pretty ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon along with some great new Digital Stamps from Bonnie Garby Designs.

I created a 6-1/2" x 4-3/4" card with a few layers. My digital sentiment from our sister company Bonnie Garby Designs is my main focal point.  I ran a piece of delphinium Diamond Satin Ribbon topped with Mixed Pastel Vertical Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon across the center of the card under the sentiment.

The sentiments I used on my card today came from the More Spring Sentiments Digital Stamp Bundle.  I used the same bundle for both the sentiment on the front of the card and the interior sentiment.  This is a perfect little greeting card to send to a dear friend.

Our sister company 'Bonnie Garby Designs' is offering a large variety of digital sentiment stamps and svg files.  Below is the digital stamp bundle I used on my card today. 

For a video tutorial on how I use mulberry paper, please click HERE.

I decided to keep this card nice and flat for mailing so I didn't add any bows or flowers.  This is a good style of card to use up those shorter pieces of ribbon and jazz up your card without adding much thickness.  This card is light enough and flat enough for mailing with one stamp in a regular envelope.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Don't forget to stop by and visit me on my Make Time to Craft Blog too.  Have a crafty week!

Be Happy! Scrapbook Layout

 Hello and Happy Friday! 

Misty (@Mommyofkidz) here with you today sharing a new layout that I did using some Prima Marketing goodies and some things from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop!

I pulled out my kit that was packed with the Prima Goodness and Decided immediately that I wanted to add a few things to create this layout.  I am a sucker for some burlap string, and the RRR shop has it in ALL COLORS!!  WHAT!!?? All I can say is YES PLEASE!!  Give me more! I decided to use use the Ivory, but was teetering on using the light blue as well. And have I mentioned the mulberry paper roses? Those are to DIE for! I use those beauties on everything! They add just the perfect touch to about any card, layout, or even home decor project. They have endless uses for us crafty Chicks!  Oh, and lone last thing from know I can't forget to add the ribbon!  Well, in this case, I tossed in some 1.5 inch yellow netting to bring in some more pops of color. 

Once everything was gathered, I began working on my layout. I had already printed the photos that I wanted to use, so It was pretty easy to assemble. 
The biggest challenge I had was scaling BACK on the amount of flowers and other embellishments to use.  I am SO EXTRA as my kids call me, So of course, I am always adding EXTRA eye candy!! I mean...jut LOOK at these clusters! I totally could have added more! Actually, I was about to add some of my FAVORITE RRR shop find, the pearl resin hearts!  However, I only have a few left, so I opted to save them for JUST the RIGHT layout. 

After gluing flowers and tucking the twine, I was ready to add the last minute paint splatters for some texture. and Finally, my final creation...and I am LOVING it!!  
 I love scrapbooking, and I am completely OBSESSED with the look that these things give to this outdoorsy themed layout!

Don't be fooled by the name! 
 Really Reasonable Ribbon  has so much more than just ribbon! 
Go browse the shop and see for yourself!

Congratulations Bonitajoy!

10. Bonitajoy4/14/24, 9:52 PM

I live in Ohio, directly on the path. people in our area(central Ohio) had been preparing for .months...glasses were advertised all over.There wasn't a motel or hotel room available in Columbus.People came from all over the country to experience it. There was a party atmosphere during the time prior to the event. I wa walking down to my friends to witness it, and people were walking all over to visit and party to wait for it. Cloudy weather had been forecasted, but It was a beautiful day!
We started watching the sky at about 1:30. Amazingly, the phases developed just exactly as predicted on the science sites that had described them. That aspect of it seemed to just blow our minds....that scientists could predict each little change..and where the dots would ebb and just how they would develop and then almost explode into the atmosphere. All of the schools were off the event, and as the changes took place, at the beginning, voices were loud and announced the it got darker,...things got quieter, until the actual eclipse. Then there was yelling , cheers, and fireworks. It did get cooler. It was both beautiful, and yet eerie. It was almost like a forewarning to take care of the planet

Now if you didn't win, don't worry!! We will be 'hopping' each month so you'll have another chance to win soon! We hope you stop by and visit our blog often.

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!

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.

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. 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!
