Winter Woodland Christmas Card

Hey there Paper Peeps! I've been a busy little elf getting my Christmas projects in the bag for the I'm sharing a warm and woodland style card I created using the Rustic Hues November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This assortment is full of warm rich colors just right for Fall projects....or if you have nature enthusiasts on your's great for Christmas projects too!  
This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash!  We also offer 3, 6, and 12 month gift subscriptions for your crafty friends.

I've paired the  Brown Plaid ribbon and  Arianna Lace with a leather look background and festive stripes. I layered them with some bits and pieces from my Creativity Kits and  a beautiful Holiday Deer Image.

I topped off the bow with gorgeous Mulberry Flowers in Fall colors.

Okay that's all for me...hope you are enjoying a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Happy Halloween Everyone!

I sure hope the weather is better for Trick-or-Treating in your neck of the woods then it is in the Northeast.  Brrrrr.  I'm glad I don't have small children any more!

Since it is Halloween, I figured a Halloween project was a must!  My card and little pumpkin are sporting two of my very favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My fun spider web and pumpkin lantern were created on my Silhouette Cameo.  The fun sentiment is from Create with TLC.

The bow on my card is made with Black Netting which comes in a 1-1/2" width, but I trimmed it down to about 3/4" wide.  I tied a basic bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0 and added a Lime Button in the center.

My cute little pumpkin has a double-looped double-layer bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 with 5/8" Black Delicate Stitched Satin.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Halloween!     ~Bonnie

Good-bye Really Reasonable Ribbon....

Happy Halloween! Get out those tooth brushes and dental floss, the flood of sugary snacks is soon to commence.

Well folks, this will be my last creation for Really Reasonable Ribbon and I have loved every second of it. Time to move on and get crafty somewhere new.

I have decided to revisit a favorite stamp and some of my all time favorite ribbons. I very rarely create holiday specific cards but I thought just one more wouldn't hurt. I love these two ribbons. The orange and green are a perfect wrap up of Fall colors. Paired with cute designer paper and a few layers, they make the whole card come together.
Ribbon Recipe:  Satin with Grosgrain Edge Moss and Satin with Grosgrain Edge Tangerine
I love the thicker texture of these ribbons, it makes it easier to create bows and it stays put.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful week.

Candy Time!

Hi friends, it's Linsey and today is my final post here on the RRR blog and I want to express how much I have enjoyed being a part of the design team over the past 6 months. Thank you to Bonnie, my fellow designers and all the wonderful RRR fans for enriching my creative journey--it's been my great pleasure and honor working with you and sharing with you and I will miss it very much. My final project is all about Halloween and my favorite part of Halloween--the candy! I whipped up this sweet little ensemble below with some super cute paper and embellishments from Doodlebug Designs "Ghouls & Goodies" collection and ribbon from the Haunted Halloween Assortment/September ribbon club assortment. Hope you enjoy it!

Are you in the RRR Monthly Ribbon Club yet? If not, you really are missing out. It's only $9 per month and each ribbon assortment is filled with a fabulous array of 7-9 different ribbons varying in theme and averaging 14-16 yards of ribbon total. This is a phenomenal value and a perfect gift idea for the upcoming holiday season!

Thank you so much for stopping by and making my last post as an RRR designer a wonderful and memorable one! I hope to see you all out in crafty blog land!

Big Day by Jenn Cochran

Hello RRR friends and followers.  Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks.  How you are all doing good.  Can you believe that the end of October is in just a few days?  Where has the time gone.  I better get to Christmas shopping!  LOL!!! 

On my project today, I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's 1.5" Black Netting and Chevron Striped Twill Black.  I tied the black netting into a multi-loop bow.  Then I cut the loops in order to make them stick out.  I added the Chevron Striped Twill in Black on top with a little dot of clear adhesive.  Scroll down to check out the Spectrum Noir Markers I used to color this cute image.

Thanks so much for visiting me here at RRR!

Fun with Chipboard Ornaments

Hi Everyone.. today I have another Christmas idea to get started before the holidays are upon us using the October Ribbon Club Assortment and a few other beautiful ribbons that I have from RRR.  This month the assortment is jam packed full of gorgeous ribbons to use and I had a hard time deciding what to use on it :)  So I did a few of the ornaments to share with all of you today.

This is another fun chipboard product that I found and it was soooo easy to cover with papers and the ribbons on the sides to finish them.  Each is something different and this would be a great project to use up some of the things you have saved in your stash and then you can hang them on the tree each year and enjoy them instead of being tucked away... 

This is my favorite and I used a premade Santa and then cut circles and a fancy lacy circle to back the chipboard ornament.  The ribbon on the front is from the RRR club assortment and on the sides.
The ribbon on the side is christmas dots and green ovals and the front ribbon is metallic edge satin ribbon in green.  This one comes in lots of shades and is one of my favorite.

For this one I used some snowflake papers for the theme and then cut a big snowflake from a Spellbinder die to put on the front.  And of course lots of pretty red snowflake ribbon and the white organza dot ribbon with dots that look like snow.  This was super quick and easy to do.

And lastly I decorated this one with some pretty red snowflake papers and added poinsettias that I made and added gold to the edges so that they would match the metallic gold thread.  Guess I am going to be needing to go back to get more of these to make for gifts... It's really fun :)

Thanks for stopping over and don't forget to leave a comment...

Hugs and Smiles, Teresa

Saying Goodbye Really Reasonable Ribbon & A Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone!
Today is a sad day, as its my LAST post with Really Reasonable Ribbon! I will truly miss designing with Bonnie and the team, but have to say, I have been truly blessed to be part of this amazing design team for so long! Bonnie carries the most amazing ribbons, laces, trims, and seam binding out there, and I have been lucky enough to work with most of them! Love working with all the beautiful ribbons and goodies, and want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Bonnie for having me as part of her wonderful design team for so long. I have enjoyed every term, and all the friendships I have made along the way!!! Thank you again Bonnie!! I will MISS you all, but I will be visiting and keep in touch with you all too!! Can't wait to see all the new amazing projects that this term brings! Congratulations to the new Ladies, you will truly LOVE this Design Team, as it's amazing, and Bonnie is the BEST!!!!! She is an amazing lady, and team coordinator :) Hugs to you Bonnie!!!
Ok now on to my project for today!

Today's Post is a Gift Card holder!

So first I cut out the CottageCutz Gift Card Holder using some pretty design paper, and then distressed it. Next I added Really Reasonable Ribbon Chloe Crocheted Lace, and then a piece of a white doily that I distressed. Then I cut out the Birthday Wishes Doily in pink, and distressed it as well. I only used a part of it, as I wanted it as the background for the flap of my Gift Card Holder. The CottageCutz Fancy Present and Tag Topper are both distressed as well, and then I added some Viva Pearl dots to both of them.

Here is a photo of the inside, and some more of the Beautiful Chloe Crocheted Lace along the bottom of the gift card holder.  I did use Scor-tape to hold my gift card together. I used the 1/4" width.

The little bows and big bow are made with RRR Seam Binding. I used the Baby Pink Seam Binding, love the look of seam binding and it's very shabby chic! I added a button, and some pearls to the bows.

I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Hugs to all,
