Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge here at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Please scroll down to the next post for the winners of the last challenge.

The theme for Challenge #134 is Anything Goes with Ribbon or Trim.
Create a card, layout, multi media piece, tag, ATC, hair bow, you name it. Just be sure to follow the theme above and use ribbon, lace or trim somewhere on your project.

We are thrilled to have Polly's Paper Studio for our sponsor this week.  
HEAD ON OVER and take a look at all the wonderful digital collage sheets that are available along with lots of other fabulous items.


Here is a little inspiration from our design team for challenge #134 to get you started.  
All of the sample projects feature ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and digital collage sheets from Polly's Paper Studio.


Now, let's see your Anything Goes creations! 
We will be selecting our top three favorite projects to feature, so stop back on February 19th to see our picks along with our next challenge theme. 

Here's what you need to do:
* Create a new project using the posted theme. A layout, card, ATC, home decor item, hair bow, or anything you can think of provided it fits the weekly theme.
* You may enter up to 6 projects, but you're asked to provide newly designed projects. No back-linking please.
* All projects must also include some sort of ribbon, lace or trim.
* A maximum of 6 entries per person per challenge please.
* Post your project on your blog or an online gallery (using code RRR134) and link it here with the Inlinkz tool below. Please provide a direct link to your post, not an entire blog.
* You have until February 17th at 11:59 PM Eastern time to enter your projects. Thanks so much for playing and good luck.
 PLEASE consider turning off your word verification.
It would be a great help to us if you would consider turning off your word verification if it's active on your blog. To do this is really easy and all you need to do is go to Customize > Settings > Comments > then scroll down to where it says comment moderation and select always (this won't stop anybody leaving you a comment but they won't show on your blog until you approve them). Then scroll down to show word verification for comments? and select No.
We love to visit your blogs and leave comments on all the terrific entries, but the word verification really slows us down. :o)

My Girl

                    Happy Thursday ya'll!   My day here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have two projects for you today.  A Valentine puppy tag...pure retro!  I used Paradise Aqua seam binding along with lipstick red seam binding.  I topped off my paper bow with the prettiest two tone cottage roses in blue.  I love them!!!
                   My other card is a "just because" encouraging card.  I have had these Crate chipboard letters forever and decided to grab them and use them.  They were my jump off point.  I have been trying to use random things that have been sitting on my desk.  I used baby pink seam binding on the card.  I love the way it turned out.  Well hope you enjoy these goodies!  Hugs, cherry

Easter Wishes

Hi there crafty peeps!  I am back today to share a card I made with some beautiful pink ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.  I am sitting here in the middle of a blizzard in SE MN and all I can think about is spring with its hope of new life and flowers stating to dot the landscape.  I decided to get a jump on some Easter themed cards to cheer me up!

Isn't this retro little duckling just the cutest!?  All of my images and papers came from Polly's Paper on Etsy.  This was so easy and fun to paper piece all of her great digi images.  I also added some beautiful 7/8" and 5/8" pink gingham ribbon as a perfect finishing touch to the card.  I also put a thin coat of crystal Stickles to the flowers on the duck image.  I hope you enjoy my card and it puts you in the mood for spring.  Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone.  I'm back again today with a fun and girly birthday card featuring some pretty ribbons from the brand new February Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This fabulous February assortment contains lots of yummy greens.  It's great for St. Paddy's Day, Spring or whatever you want.  Pull in some of the pinks from the January assortment and the colors really sing!
This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbony goodness.  Not a member yet?  JOIN TODAY and begin with this wonderful assortment.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.  You'll always have the perfect ribbon for any project.
My dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs and that gorgeous Quadrafoil Doily in my new favorite!  The roses are also handmade using Cheery Lynn Rose dies.

My beaufiful bi-color double-loop bow is the real show stopper.  It's made using 5/8" Sherbet Deliciate Stitched Satin Ribbon and 5/8" Emerald Plaid Ribbon from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  I also ran a strip of the 5/8" Pistachio Satin with Grosgrain Edge Ribbon topped with 3/8" Mixed Green Vertical Stripe Ribbon across the middle of the card under the sentiment for more texture.  Both of those styles are from the February assortment as well.  I love the mix of darker green and lighter 'yellowy - green' colors.  Add in a zing of pink and it's really quite eye catching.

For a video tutorial on how to create this fantastic bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on other products used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

Sending Love to You

Hi friends.  Today I have gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, beautiful dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and pink all mixed together in one card.  You can't go wrong with  that, right!
I'm loving the open look on card fronts lately.  Isn't it cool?!  This Honeycomb frame die from Cheery Lynn Designs is great for this because the die just cuts out the holes in the design.  It does not cut a rectangular frame around the outside edge.  When you add an image to the front it also covers enough that you can add a sentiment to the inside and it won't show though the lacy card front.
My bow is a simple double-loop bow made with 5/8" Fantasy Rose Diamond Satin Ribbon created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  Sometimes a simple classic bow is the perfect touch.
