I'm so Lucky!

Hi friends.  I'm still playing with my fabulous February 'Gorgeously Green' Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Today I'm sharing a fun St. Paddy's Day themed card.
The sentiment on this card could easily be changed to make a birthday card, thank you card, or whatever you need.  The beautiful dies used on this card are from Cheery Lynn Designs.
For my bow on this card I used a 3/8" ribbon instead of my usual 5/8" width.  Because I still wanted a substantial size bow, I did two loops on each side for each color.  The bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0.

For a tutorial on how to create this bi-color bow, please click HERE.
All the ribbons on my card came from the February Ribbon Club Assortment.  This great assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  JOIN TODAY and you can pick up our special deal this month where you can start with the January and February assortments for a special low price.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other products used on this card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

For a Special Friend

Hey there Paper Peeps!  Ginny here to share a very special card I created for my dear friend and crafty conspirator Jennifer.  We go wayyyyyy back to when our kids were little. We actually both have an Alexander (same age now and nearly done with college) and a Jonathan (one year apart and  nearly done with high school.)   So we've sat together at  more football practices and band performances and scout meetings than you can count. We even have matching stadium outfits lol. Anyhoo....she's a very special friend and I'm so glad she had a nice birthday!

I'm using the gorgeous Turquoise Chevron Striped Twill to wrap the card and make a little topper for the tag.
Okay that's all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : )

Hello, to all our ribbon-loving friends.  Today I'm sharing a sweet project that I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I really hope it inspires you to stop by and check out all the AMAZING ribbons, laces, trims and more that are carried in the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop.  There's SO MUCH to see.
This card was created using some patterned papers that I inked and machine stitched together.  Once I had done that, I added some fabulous trims from the best little ribbon shop ever - Really Reasonable Ribbon.  First, I put a lengh of the super lovely Bay Leaf Seam Binding on the card.  Then, I created a bow with the Bay Leaf Seam BindingBlack Seam BindingSolid Mint Baker's Twine, and Black Burlap String by May Arts.
I topped that pretty bow with a Black Open End Rose and two White Open End Roses.  There are so many lovely flowers and embellishments at Really Reasonable Ribbon in addition to all the amazing ribbons and trims they carry.  There's never a lack of availability, and you're sure to find LOTS of great items.  So, why not head on over to do some shopping now?  You will absolutely LOVE their selection, prices and ALL the great inspiration you will find on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  AND.....there's a fun challenge going on now.  So, be sure to stop by and play along.

Happy Easter

Springtime and Easter are around the corner and it is a good time to take inventory of your ribbons and flowers for your projects and cards for this time of year. You might want to start your springtime supply with the
 Really Reasonable Ribbon February Ribbon Club collection of gorgeous yellow and green ribbons and some Wild Orchid Craft flowers. 

I am using the gorgeous 5/8" Satin Swiss Mini Dots Apple Green ribbon on my card today.  It has the dots printed on one side of the ribbon and the other side has the solid green which is show above.  This is perfect for matching your two ribbons together for a double bow like the one above.  Of course, I would not have been able to make this bow without the Zutter Bow-It-All V2 bow maker.  I used the 1" Scor-Tape to tape this ribbon on my card.  Using the Scor-Tape, I am able to keep my ribbon on the bow in the exact place that I want it to be on the card. 

Other supplies:
Graphic 45 - Ladies Diary

Cheery Lynn:  Boutique circle, Sophia's Heart Doily, Leaf Flourish die, Ivy Strip,   Deco E corner, Horizon Circle Boutique Stacker Frame.

Whimsy Stamp-Bunny's Choice
Creative Expressions-Sue Wilson-Petite Vinery
Stampin Up-Happy Easter set

Always love to hear from you so please leave a comment.  Join us at Really Reasonable Ribbon challenges and also follow us on Facebook.  Also if you want to see my next card and projects with ribbon and flowers, follow me on

"14 Things I Love About You" Pocket Tags

Hello, everyone!

I am here to share a special project with all of you today, but there is a small catch - we have to keep this hush, hush quiet until Valentine's Day because my oldest son is giving this to his girlfriend!  We don't want to ruin the surprise, now do we?! ;)

Some of you might remember the Tag Advent Calendar I created for Christmas.  This is similar, but the theme is "14 Things I Love About You!"  I took the photos before my son wrote on the tags.  Had to give the guy a BIT of privacy! Grins!

You will see many ribbons and trims from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.  I'll share the complete list at the bottom of the post to make things easier.

To keep things as flat as possible, I only added flowers to the very first piece.  Doilies, washi tape, vintage buttons, die cuts, and various other little goodies decorate each pocket.

You can find more details on my blog, "Just Coffee Please..."

Don't forget to play along in the new challenge.  It's a theme we all love - "Anything Goes with ribbons or trims."  Thanks so much for stopping by!
