Inspiration Day with Carolyn

Hi ya peeps, sorry my card is a bit late. I had a little accident with some stairs, photos on the wall and my wrist on Wednesday and I've been out of it with pain meds. Better late than not at all. When I did this card I was looking forward to using black on black.

My inspiration is all about being stark and dark.

I LOVE rooster anything and I love a dark background. Add a little gingham ribbon against a darker background with a little pop of color in the image and you have a bolder statement. Have I mentioned that I LOVE  gingham? There are lots of fun gingham ribbons in the store. The recipe for this ribbon is:  Gingham Black 3/8 inch ribbon.

Don't forget to join in on the current challenge which is pets and ribbons and stop by our Facebook and Pinterest pages for further inspiration from our design team.

Happy crafting,

Hello there RRR friends! Thanks for visiting today! I have a very simple and lovely card to share with you. It features some wonderful Ivory Burlap String wrapped and tied in a bow around a tiny cluster of Wild Orchid Cosmos Daisy Stem Flowers (white) and Sweetheart Blossoms White with Red Center Flowers. I love the impact this has. It was almost too easy :)

 Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create something wonderful! Have a great day!

Fall Photo Calendar with Graphic 45

Hi, it's Teresa here today on this beautiful Monday to share a special calendar that I did for a wonderful person who has the cutest chickens I know.  Sometimes finding the perfect paper and trying to make something special for someone can be great inspiration and I think she is going to really love this.  At least I hope so.  So the ribbons this month for the August Monthly Ribbon Club  started this too.  They are gorgeous and went perfect with the papers that I had in my stash from G45.  And I added a few more that I loved too.

So you can tell that all the fall colors in the paper really went good!  For the front of the book I made that huge flower by gathering up the White Jute Ribbon  and added another gathered row of   Ivory Tulle  and then on top of that I put twine and flowers.  I also made a really pretty bow with the Green Seam Binding Ribbon from the shop.

Here is page two in the calendar.  I love all the rich colors and the ivory seam binding went great for it just as a bow at the bottom of the page.

For this page I tied a piece of the rich Red Burgandy Diamond Satin Ribbon with a flower.

This page I kept really simple and just added some flowers from my stash.  There are lots of gorgeous flowers in the shop that you can see here and I think it's time for an order for me too.

And lastly I put the biggest rooster to end the year on just by fussy cutting him out and layering him on the page with the calendar pieces and some Baker's Twine that you can see here and comes in lots and lots of colors... could use them all myself and it's a nice thing to have on hand.

That's it for today and hope you got inspired to make something fun for someone special in your life and don't forget to check out all the gorgeous ribbons this month.  It's going to be fun this fall.

Big Hugs....Teresa

Sweet Ride a Pony Baby Card

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with a sweet baby card to share today. I made this card for Really Reasonable Ribbon & The Scrapping Cottage using the beautiful ribbons, netting, and hemp from RRR, and then beautiful CottageCutz Baby Dies from The Scrapping Cottage.

I LOVE the Delicate Stitched Pink Satin Ribbon that Bonnie carries at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. It's beautiful in person, and pictures don't seem to show all the beauty. I criss-crossed the ribbon for a different look. Then used the White Tulle and ran it across the center over the Ribbon and tied it in a bow. Next I added a big pink bow using the same Delicate Stitched Pink Satin.

My buttons are also from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store, and I used the Hemp in PINK for a sewn look. Love using the Hemp Bonnie carries.  It's perfect for the buttons.

The Baby Dies I used are CottageCutz dies, and are from the New Baby Release (The Scrapping Cottage). The Design Paper is from American Crafts and one is the Pebbles collection.

I enjoyed creating my card for today! It was super easy!!!

Thank you for stopping by, and for all your lovely comments! Hope you have a super AWESOME Day!!
Hugs to all,
