Botanical Celebration

Hi there crafty peeps!  I am dropping in to share a card I made with some beautiful paper from Graphic 45's Botanical Tea collection and gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I really have hoarded this paper collection for a while now so I figured it was time to use a bit of it to make a pretty springtime botanical card.  This could be used for a birthday, Mother's Day, Bridal Shower, or any other celebration that comes along.  I matted the image and patterned paper with green and pink cardstock.  I also added some clear oval gems for a pretty accent.  The ribbons I used are Hot Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon and Moss Green Gingham 3/8" Ribbon.  I also added a cute green decorative button from my stash to the center of my pink bow, which was created using my Zutter Bow-It-All tool.  I hope you enjoy this pretty celebration card, and have a wonderful spring day!

Wrapped Up In Satin

Hello RRR fans.  It's Dana here today.  I'm sad to say this will be my last card for my dt term here at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I have had so much fun here with Bonnie and the ladies.  Bonnie always makes us feel so special and it has been an honor to design with everyone.  Well, let me showcase my last card.
I wrapped my last dt card up in lots and lots of satin ribbon.  First I used the Diamond Satin ribbon in the beautiful color of daffodil.  This made a great background for my electric blue satin ribbon with silver metallic edging.  Oh my word...this ribbon is amazing.  Let me give you a close up.
My, my, my this is a pretty bow.  LOL  I just can't say enough about the gorgeous color of this ribbon.  It is definitely one of my favorites.  But then again...all the ribbon I have used from Really Reasonable Ribbon have been my favorites. ;-) I'm sure you all have favorites too and you can head on over to the shop and pick up some more favorites.   I want to thank you for all your lovely comments on my cards and I hope to see you all again soon.

Retro Vintage Apron Wall Hanging

Hey there Paper Peeps. Ginny here to share a really awesome and really retro wall hanging. I used my new favorite Sheer Cherry Red ribbon for Summer projects.

I created these great little layered aprons with images from Domestic Goddess Creative Scraps. The papers are from Creating with Vintage Patterns CD1.

I also used Turquoise Striped Twill ribbon for the funky retro vibe....and it's great layered up with the cherries : )

Red Plaid Ribbon is the perfect accent.

I added some gorgeous coordinating flowers from Petaloo and groovy little patterned buttons.
Okay that's all for me...wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )

Middy Biddy Kraft Pocket Card

Hello crafters and friends of Really Reasonable Ribbon, it's Karen!  I hope you're all having a wonderful week.  Today I'd like to share another fun pocket card I made using one of the sweet Kraft Middy Biddy Bags With Horizontal Stripes.  But, as I've mentioned before, don't let the term "Middy Biddy" make you think that these bags are small.  They are an impressive 5" x 7.5", so there's LOTS of room for tucking in photos, a letter/journaling, a gift card, or anything you wish to give someone for a special occasion.  They also make great party favors.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries several different styles of  Decorative Bags that are also perfect for your various projects - get creative.  This particular size Kraft Middy Biddy Bag is also perfect for making a mini album when turned on its side, placed with a few more, and bound together.  Well, why not?  They come in a package of 10 for just $2.75, so that could make you several mini albums AND a pocket card or two.  What a cute, versatile and SUPER economic product.  For mine, I simply folded up the bag half-way, machine stitched it down creating a pocket, and then covered it with some GORGEOUS ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
First, I ran a strip of 1 1/2" Jute Ribbon Natural across the top of the bag (below the pocket opening) and attached it with hot glue.  Next, I took our gorgeous Silky Crush Teal Ribbon and cut it down the middle into two equally-sized narrower strips that I tied into bows.  This Silky Crush Ribbon is GORGEOUS!  It comes in 16 different beautiful and vibrant colors, and is 1.5" wide.  It's great for making wreaths and bigger projects.  It's got an absolutely LOVELY sheen to it, and it's "crinkled" as well.
The next layer is a triple bow made with White Jute String, and its topped with a pink clear button.  I also added a vintage image, a tea-stained tag, a snippet of lace, and a pearl sticker.  These lovely Decorative Bags are so easy to work with, and Really Reasonable Ribbon has everything you need.....from Decorative Bags to buttons, ribbons, laces and trims and SO much more.
Thanks for stopping by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today.  We hope you enjoy the inspiration we share with you here, and we sincerely hope that you will visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store, and play along in the current challenge on our Challenge Page.  I'd also love to have you visit my blog, My Cup Runneth Over, to say hello.

Minion Fun..There's nothing you can do about it!!

Hello Peeps,
Heather here and lately I have been into adding funny sayings to Minion and other images that I find on the internet.  Today I am sharing a card that I made for a friend...and she will love
This card is not my usual Vintagey card...more along the lines of clean and simple.
I used Tropic Checkerboard Satin, Delicate Stitched Aqua Satin and Coral Rose Swiss Dots from this month's Really Reasonable Ribbon Assortment.  I also used Moss Green Gingham, Watermelon Baker's Twine, Score Tape (hold my ribbons in place).and Tombow Foam Tabs from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Here is a close up.
The saying I came up with is just perfect for her...I am quite sure we will both burst out laughing when she reads
I hope you have a wonderful day!
That you can stop by the Really Reasonable Ribbon store and get yourself some goodies!!
Thank you for visiting us today!!

Sweetest Flower by Jenn Cochran

Good morning friend and fan of Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Jenn here from Jax Bean Stalks.  Hope your weekend has been wonderful.  I have been crafting all weekend.  Here is a fun 'just because' card made with one of many colors of Seam Binding that RRR carries.  Seam binding is a perfect ribbon to tie multi-loop bows.  It is easily manipulated and can create an awesome focus point in your projects.

This soft pink seam binding coordinated perfectly with my designer paper and rose die cut.  You can find this Pink Salmon Seam binding and a very large assortment of other colors HERE at the RRR website.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  Hope the rest of your weekend is crafty!

The Perfect Friend

Hi everyone and welcome to the RRR Blog today.  It's Teresa here and I am sharing a friend card today that I did with one of my favorite Spellbinder dies, paper and ribbons. 

I really had to think about this one because there was so much design in the paper, but I think it worked out pretty good and I am really happy with it.  I used Graphic 45 papers on it for the base and the beige patterned paper I cut out with the Spellbinder die.  Layering it over the print gave it a really interesting pattern and yet the pattern of the die still stands out.  Then I layered on a black Spellbinder Labels One decorative die and the matching smaller piece to stamp my sentiment in.  The stamp is from Penny Black's chalkboard set and to make it stand out even more, I embossed it with clear powder to darken up the black in the words.  Sometimes just that one little trick can really make your card pop.

And...Here is a quick close up of the card so you can see all the pretty patterns and the seam binding ribbon in log brown that I used for the bows.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by today :)
