Hooray for Beach Season

Spellbinders Bayfair Collection, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Kathy Clement, Kathy by Design

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Memorial Day has come and gone, and that means it is officially beach season!  I created a happy little slimline folio to help celebrate all things beachy.  Then I dressed it up with a lovely  Navy/Ivory/Gold Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Pink Bakers Twine adds a pop of color to the button flower on this sweet little number.

The inside is filled with lots of room for photos and memories of your family beach trip. Gold metallic string tops the cute tags in the side pocket. If  you'd like to see a tutorial for this fun folio, please click HERE. 

Hope you all have a happy, sunny day!

Boutique Hairbow

Hello and Happy Friday to you all! 
Misty (@Mommyofkidz) here with you today. 
Do you ever see something and just KNOW that you have to create a project centered around it?  Well, that is exactly what happened when I created the bow that I am sharing today. I  was browsing the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop and saw this GORGEOUS blue & lavender 3/8 grosgrain butterfly ribbon and just HAD TO HAVE IT!  I didn't know what I would do with it yet, but it was way too pretty not to buy! 

Even though I did not have a clear image of a project in mind, I am so glad that I decided to get it!
No matter what I had decided to do, I am a complete sucker for the lavender/turquoise combo. Even the jumbled mess of ribbon on my desk looks pretty when it is a mixture of those colors!

Once I decided that I would make a pretty little hair bow with this lovely array of ribbons, I had to narrow it down to which ones I would use! I finally settled on: 
(**Only the Purple) 
and a 3/8 blue striped ribbon that has sold out, 
but there are plenty of other similar choices in the shop! 

After selecting my ribbons, the rest is history! 
Just make each component to the hair bow and then stack them up and assemble! Oh, and I decided to elevate this one a little by tossing in a bit of marabou feathers. I think the feathers were a perfect final touch!
And just look at that shimmer on the satin ribbon! 

The photos do not do this hair bow and ribbons justice! I can tell you how pretty these ribbons are all day long, but you have to SEE them to truly understand! Head on over the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop and start filling your basket...there are quite a few sales so you can stock up! Go fill your basket today!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a crafty weekend!

Proud American

Hello, everyone and welcome by today.  It's Karen here sharing is a FUN card using lots of great products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I used a cool sentiment from Bonnie Garby Designs and some awesome trims and goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon to create this quick and fun patriotic card.  I always love what a ribbon treatment does for a card, and we can always count on RRR to have the perfect ribbons, trims and embellishments for every card or project.
This card uses black cardstock layered with white cardstock layered with a cute patterned paper.  I die-cut a small doily from red cardstock and I cut the Bonnie Garby Sentiment square from white cardstock.  I layered everything together and then ran a length of Black & White Bold Gingham Ribbon across my card and used it to tie a pretty bow.  I tucked in lengths of Iridescent White String and some Double Head Stamens.  I also added some stick pins for fun.
The awesome patriotic sentiment can be found in the 4th of July Patriotic Stamp Bundle at Bonnie Garby Designs along with hundreds of other sentiments for every occasion.  I just LOVE Bonnie's designs, fonts, and her great wording choices.  You can find so many great sentiments to help (affordably) increase your sentiment stamps options.  The Gingham Ribbon I used on my card comes in SO many great colors and widths.  I also used lots of Scor-Tape to secure everything in place permanently.
What are YOU creating this week?  Be sure to stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon store as well as at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog for lots of great inspiration.  It's always a treat to have you stop by my blog to leave me some love.  We appreciate you very much and hope you're having a great week.  Thanks so much for visiting today.

Sweet Window Shaker Card using RRR

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all! DT Member Cheryl here today sharing this darling Raggedy Sweetheart Window Shaker card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon. On my card today I used Lots of Delicate Satin Ribbon, Scor-tape, flower and foam tabs.

I ended up using lots of random flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon, some of them are open roses 15mm, 10mm, I used gardenia white, and cosmo daisy white, I used a chrysanthemum in pink, and mini sweetheart blossoms.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:

other supplies used are / svg, MS punch, window die, sewing machine, hot glue, swirl die, shaker pieces, white paint pen for dots, inks for svgs.

I love making the window shakers, using craft plastic sheets, foam roll, or foam tabs cut. Shaker pieces, and the window die. These are so fun to make. I did do a hidden tag in the pocket behind the window. Delicate satin ribbon makes for super easy and fun bows that hold their shape. Love this!

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

The Beach is Calling Home Decor Banner

Graphic 45 The Beach is Calling Banner-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Kathy Clement

 Hello, Ribbon Lovers!

Summer is peeking around the corner, and that always makes me think about the beach!  So I dug out some of favorite Really Reasonable Ribbon trims and flowers to make this The Beach is Calling Home Decor Banner.

Really Reasonable Ribbon-Graphic 45-The Beach is Calling Banner-Kathy Clement

This great big banner is stitched onto Navy Silky Crush Ribbon and topped with Navy Striped Burlap Ribbon (out of stock, but this grosgrain ribbon would look great, too). 

Kathy Clement-Really Reasonable Ribbon-Graphic 45-Banner

Each end of the banner is dressed up with pretty bows tied from Navy/Ivory/Gold Plaid Ribbon, one of my all time favorites.  I've topped my double loop bows with Gold Metallic String .  

The flower clusters are made up with White Magnolias, Earth Tone Magnolias, Mixed Blue Peonies and Itty Bitty Mixed Blue Sweetheart Blossoms. 

If you'd like to see how to make this lovely banner, please enjoy this video tutorial.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends!

Sweet Strawberry Card

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you! 
Misty (@Mommyofkidz) here with you today sharing a cute and easy card that I made over the iNSD weekend.  To be honest,   after a very LONG week of torrential downpours and extreme flash flooding here in my area, I am very thankful to be able to share anything with you all! While I was not affected by the flood waters, I do have several friends and family members that were.
PLEASE keep them in your thoughts as the recovery process begins. I will be going to the hospital today to visit my Aunt who broke her leg while beginning the clean up process yesterday from the 4 feet of water in her own home. 

Anyway...before all the chaos began,
I was enjoying the preparation of a few cards (which I do not EVER make) to start giving handmade cards as opposed to store bought ones.  While this is not the card that I will take with me to the hospital today, this is one of my favorites from the weekend.

For this card, I pulled out some OLD favorites of mine...
My Creative Memories punches.  
I paired the punches with the perfect ribbon and Burlap String Combo from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and...well...
When I combined my creations...
It made a perfectly SWEET strawberry vine! 

As you can see, the final results were nothing 
short of adorable, but it did not start out that way! 
Every perfect project begins
 with a not so perfect construction phase.  
Here is a photo to show you the deconstructed view of this card:

Of course, once I added in the tag with the 
super cute pink plaid ribbon, it started pulling the vine together. I topped that off with a length of
Ivory Burlap String, and the card was complete. 
"SWEET" Victory!! 
Isn't is satisfying to see how a project comes together and the 
final results are better than you expected? 
Yes, that is exactly how this felt...
Like a victory! 

 Since I am not really a card maker, I am pretty proud of how this came together!  I will have to figure something out that will be appropriate for my Aunt so that I can make a card for her.
I am quite sure that she would appreciate the beauty of a homemade card! Any suggestion for a design would be truly appreciated! Leave them in the comments section below! 

Thank you for stopping by today!

Pretty As a Peach

Do you want to make cards that are "pretty as a peach"? Well, whenever I'm trying to make a pretty card, I almost always want to put some type of ribbon or trim on it. We all know that the very BEST place to find every type of ribbon, lace, twine, or trim is Really Reasonable Ribbon. They really have it ALL from ribbons and trims to AdhesivesMulberry Flowers, and so much more.
You can read my extended supply list for this card by visiting my blog, My Cup Runneth Over.  I also added some sequins to my card for texture and sparkle.  Did you know that Really Reasonable Ribbon also carries fabulous Embellishments?  Yes!  Not only the best ribbons and trims, but many other beautiful crafty products.
The pretty gingham ribbon I wrapped around my card and used to tie a double bow is the 3/8" Moss Green & Cream Gingham Ribbon. I attached pretty much everything on my using the FABULOUS Adhesive called Scor-TapeScor-Tape comes in several different widths, and it holds things in place so that they won't come detached when mailing or when stored for a long period of time.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today. You'll always find loads of great inspiration on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and lots of great shopping at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Have a blessed and creative day, and please stop by again soon.  I always enjoy your visits and comments.
