Happy Halloween and Fun New Ribbon Club Assortment for September!

Hi everyone and Happy September.  This is my FAVORITE time of the year for crafting.  There is a chill in the air, and I just adore the beautiful colors of Autumn and Halloween.

RRR has a great new Halloween Themed Ribbon Club Assortment for September.  This assortment contains 9 styles and 17 yards of ribbon and trim.

Not a member yet?  What are you waiting for!!  Sign up today and get a fun new color or holiday themed assortment each month.  What a great way to build your ribbon stash.

Today I will share my first Halloween card of the season.

My bow is a double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using the Black Delicate Stitched Satin from the September Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also wrapped some fun Halloween Baker's Twine around the center band of the card.  The Halloween sentiment is a digital stamp from Create with TLC.

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Congratulations Card with Pretty Ribbon Accents

Hi everyone.  It's been a while since I popped on with a project for you.  August has just flown by and between a one week vacation at the beginning of the month and my oldest son landing a new job an hour from home which included a quick, two-day 600 mile (each way) trip to help him move, suddenly it's the end of the summer!  How'd that happen?

Anyway, if feels good to spend some time crafting again.  Today I made up a quick Wedding Shower card.

This is a pretty CAS card (for me).  Just a couple layers.  Of course, no card is complete without some pretty ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon!  I wrapped a layer of White Netting around the middle of the card and topped that with some 3/8" White Satin with Silver Edge Ribbon.

My beautiful double-layer bow is made using 5/8" White Delicate Stitched Satin using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For all my Bow-it-All Video Tutorials, please click HERE.
I topped the bow off with a pretty White Open Rose.

The inside sentiment is a digital stamp from Create with TLC.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Inspiration Day with Carolyn

Hi ya peeps, I've got another fun card to share with you this week. Summer is almost gone and to be honest, Minnesota hasn't seen much of a summer. We were way too hot last year and this year it's humid but not super warm. I am going to sneak in a sunny project and hope that we won't see snow before October this year!

My Project.....

I have been loving this particular green dotted and yellow dotted ribbons. They are so fresh and summery, just a nice touch of happy. I like to wrap my images up and add extra "ribbon tails" on the projects for some added color, dimension and depth.

For more fun and inspiration please visit our Facebook and Pinterest pages and don't forget to join in on our current challenge.

You Are Love Layout

Hi RRR friends, Linsey here! Wow, it's Friday already! I hope you have plans to enjoy this long holiday weekend! Today I'm sharing the 2nd scrapbook layout I've made this month--while this may not sound like any great feat, let me say that before this month, I had stopped scrapping altogether for a long while after getting hooked on stamping...I'm sure some can relate ;) I dare say, I just might be getting the hang of this scrapbook thing again! I'm enjoying mixed media artwork more and more and this 12x12 layout was a real pleasure to make. Take a look...

Can you spot where I used some wonderful trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon? If you said on the LOVE clothespin banner, you'd be correct! I looooveeee RRR lace trim and tend to hoard it but I thought this little sweetheart was worthy of using a bit on, hehe! I laid down gorgeous May Arts 1.5" White Crochet Lace, then dainty Beatrice White Crochet Lace.

But wait--I also used my favorite Gold Metallic String along the bottom and I really think it completes the page. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the RRR blog today and letting my share my layout with you! Happy Labor Day weekend!

Spring is Away by Jenn Cochran

Hello to all you RRR fans and friends!  It's Jenn from Jax Bean Stalks bringing to you a spring themed card.  I just cannot accept that Fall and Winter are upon us!  I have for you one more spring card.  Ok maybe I will have another one....I won't lie!!!  LOL!!!

I have used the fabulous corsage ribbon.  I love this ribbon because it is so very sheer.  You can totally see images through it.  Look how well my flower shows through.  Then when you layer it up in a bow, the true color of the ribbon shows!  I have used the Pastel Corsage Ribbon.  It is the Lavender.

I LOVE the way this ribbon sparkles too!  It catches the light and is so very pretty.

The corsage ribbon is really easy to tie into bows too.  It is stiff and is easily manipulated.  It really hold its shape too!

Thanks for visiting!
