French Chalkboard Labels Pocket with Tags

Hey there Paper Peeps! We're knee deep in the summer activities schedule here and loving every minute of the warm weather!!! But a busy schedule will not keep me from my studio and this week I've created a lovely little pocket filled with tags. It's a thoughtful way to present a gift card or filled with pictures and journaling for a not so traditional scrapbooking project. I used the beautiful trims from the July Ribbon Club Assortment "Black and White" 
All the patterned papers I used were from my scrap and salvage box and the vintagy images are from my French Floral Chalkboard Labels Digital Collage Sheet.
 To top the tags I created bows from Black Checkerboard Satin, Black Sheer with 4 Thin Satin Stripes,  and Black Satin Swiss Dots.
A pocket with the tags removed should look just as pretty so I finished the inside with coordinating polka dots.
I used more of the Black Satin Swiss Dots and layered on some Barbara Crocheted Lace. The gorgeous flowers are from Petaloo..I just love them! I added an additional bow created with Chevron Striped Twill in Black.

The bows on the tags are finished with Wild Orchid Crafts Black Roses, and some sweet little charms and keys.
I really love my old school label maker and for this project the black tape was a perfect match. I layered the label with a glittery flowers and tag then anchored them with a metal clip.
The tags have more of the French Floral Chalkboard Labels on coordinating papers with bold graphic patterns.
As you can see...a little accent with Stickles really helps the flowers pop and gives them a little sparkle.
I just love all the layers and textures on this pocket. It's already gone to a good home and I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Okay that's all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Celebrate The Red, White and Blue

Really Reasonable Ribbon makes it SO MUCH FUN to celebrate any holiday or special occasion with their amazing selection of ribbons and trims.  To help celebrate the 4th of July this year, Really Reasonable Ribbon (and my friend, Rachel) helped me to create some lovely hair bows.  Yes, Really Reasonable Ribbon carries much more than just the ribbons and trims - they also carry all the supplies for creating beautiful hair bows and head bands.  You can see them all here in their Headbands and Clips Category.  They have different sizes for every hair length and thickness so that it's perfect for all hair types from infants to old ladies (like me....LOL).
This larger bow includes the Molly White Crochet Lace, Tiny Electric Blue Stars on White Grosgrain, Red With Satin Grosgrain Edge, Electric Blue Satin, and several other scraps of this and that.  Really Reasonable Ribbon not only has a wonderful Patriotic Selection, but they carry selections for pretty much any special occasion you can image.  You will never have to look anywhere else for your ribbon needs!

Thanks for stopping by today, and don't forget to check back here on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog each day for more inspiration, and also for the fun challenges we offer each month.  We love it when you visit us!

Add Texture With Canvas Color Band by Jenn Cochran

Hi friends and followers of Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Thanks so much for starting your week off with visiting me here on the RRR blog!  Today I have a fun card featuring one of the new Canvas Color Band Ribbon.  It adds texture and character to any project.  It is a great stand alone ribbon or can be combined with any one of the fun ribbons found at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

This card I made for my little boy.  He is actually getting really big but still loves my handmade cards.  I have used the Canvas Color Band Ribbon in Parrot Green.  I just love the stitched detail along the edges.  The bow was easy to tie with the Bow It All 2.0.  This bow tool is also found at RRR.

Thanks so much for joining me.  I hope your week is fabulous and that you get a chance to tie a bow!!

Sweet Little Baby of Mine

Hi everyone.  Today I have a pretty baby card to share.  I'll have a new baby niece in July so I thought I'd get the card together ahead of time.  I embellished it with beautiful ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I added a pretty double-layer double-loop bow made with Pearl Pink Delicate Stitched Satin using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view a video tutorial on how I made this bow HERE.
I also added some beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Flowers.  Really Reasonable Ribbon offers a wide variety of mulberry flowers for all your crafting needs.  I used 20mm Open Roses, and 25mm Cottage Roses.  I like to wrap the stem around a needle tool for a fun look.
If you'd like to see what else I created for the new baby, please stop over at my Make Time to Craft Blog and say hi.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Princess Journal with Really Reasonable Ribbons

Hi Everyone and thanks so much for stopping over on the blog today to see what is new.  I hope that you had a lot of fun on the hop this month and got lots of ideas with the new Ribbon Club Ribbons.

Today I have a special Princess Journal to share with all of you that I did for me.  I work at Disneyland and get to meet lots of adorable princesses around the world and I needed a special place to put down all the stories that I have of them so I created this journal with lots of pretty ribbons, flower and papers with a fun Disney Princess theme.

 I just used a regular journal book for the base and created the front with a chipboard castle, Spellbinders dies for the oval and the leaves and fun sticker that I had in my stash.  The pretty flowers are the WOC Sweetheart Blossoms in pink and WOC Gardenia's in shades of pink to match the paper.

 I love putting lots of ribbons hanging on the sides of my journals for bookmarks and I chose the lightest pink Seam binding ribbons for this one and some Metallic Silver String to tie on my charms.

And here is another quick closeup of the castle and the flowers that I used.  I hope you like it and maybe this might be a fun journal to make with all the little princesses in your life for summer.  Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping over to see what is new with all of us :)

Seaside Mini Album

Hello Ribbon Lovers!

Ah, Summertime!  Time to kick back and relax, take a little vacation and maybe stick your toes in the sand!  But what do you do with all those great vacation pictures once the holiday is over?  You put them into a Seaside Mini Album that is loaded with gorgeous Really Reasonable Ribbon, Petaloo Flowers, and Seaside Papers from Authentique!  Of course!
This tiny, but mighty, mini album measures just 4.5" x 6.5" but it is filled with hidden journaling spots, pockets, tags, fold outs, flip downs, and gorgeous ribbons.
It will hold at least 24 photos, many of them 4" x 6".  Here's what you'll need to make this fabby album:
There are so many pages and details in this album that I actually made you a video so you can see the whole thing.
I hope you get to stick your toes in the sand soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

Enjoy Friend...

Hello RRR Peeps!  Craving a little vintage loving today.  First off, an old fashion card....I blended cheerful yellows, teals, and a bit of black.  Loving this color combination.   Papers are oldies but goodies, as are the diecuts.   The pocket can be used to tuck a gift card into..or even a little note.  I added Bay Leaf Seam Binding along with a gorgeous vintage rhinestone button.   At the bottom a bit of washi tape and vintage lace.
My other projects are the prettiest vintage clip earrings that I just had to do something with!  I created a couple of fun birthday tags,  keeping with the soft yellows and creams.  I added vintage crochet doilies, vintage seam bindings, just in love with these!  Hope you enjoy!  Hugs, cherry
