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 till 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)

Aren't these colors great together?

Inspiration Day with Carolyn...


Hi ya peeps. Today is my inspiration day here at Really Reasonable Ribbon and my project is "Wrapped Up".


I printed my image on the computer and I thought this gingham ribbon would wrap it up nicely. I LOVE big bows and there are plenty of wide ribbon selections in the store. Bows make a great addition to projects and I think they give a lovely finishing touch.

The recipe...

S'more Get Well Wishes


Hello RRR friends! Linsey here and I'm sorry for the delay in posting today! I am running around a lot this summer and almost forgot to share this fun little get well card I made with a s'mores theme. I so dislike getting sick in the summertime--it just feels "wrong" and so I thought this Peachy Keen stamp set was perfect for cheering up folks who are under the weather on the warm summer days. S'mores sure make me feel better no matter if I'm sick or not! :) And I think the Leather Tan Seam Binding I chose to embellish my card with is just perfect. The selection of Seam Binding at the Really Reasonable Ribbon online store is really awesome! I just love how seam binding ties and always looks just right with no effort.


Thanks so much for letting me share my get well card with you!  I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!

Sweet Recipes Book


Hi.  It's Teresa today sharing a recipe book that I created after finding lots of goodies cleaning up my craft room this week.  Nope, there was no pre-planned project in mind but I had this idea to make up a recipe book for all the goodies that I find on Pinterest and since I found so many fun things to use this is what I came up with and it went together really quick too.....


To start, I found this simple chipboard book and this piece of polka dotted paper and I had lots and lots of pretty pink ribbons from RRR shop to tie up the sides so it all kind of came together from there.  Here are all the ribbons that I used: Gingham check ribbon, Seam Binding, metallic edged satin ribbonwhite crochet lace, satin w/grossgrain ribbon, swirls organza ribbon, and some tulle in pink.  I love doing these books because you can use so many ribbons for the insides and to tie up the outside to make it beautiful.


The birdcage, flower and corner piece are from Spellbinders dies that I cut to match the ribbons.  The envelope I had in my stash and the wooden pieces are from Prima.  Inside I bought some recipe cards and matted them in black and glued them on each page.  I think this will end up being a gift ... but I better get busy... there are so many recipes to decide from to put in it.

Thanks for stopping over and hope you all have a great day :)
