Little Women Layout

Hello ribbon lovers!  
I am excited to share one of my newest layouts... 
Little Women using beautiful lace, flowers and burlap jute.
 I added a bow with the Ivory Burlap Jute - one of my favorites for adding a little dimension.  Next for softness, I added the beautiful Arianna Lace.
 For some fun dimension, I added the White Bead Berry Cluster.
Next, I continued to add photos, images, flowers, buttons and stickers to complete this fun and easy layout.  I hope this inspires you to create a layout to capture your memories.

Summertime Folio

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Even though it seems like winter would never give up this year, my calendar tells me that summer is fast approaching.  Soon we'll all be swimming at the pool, going on vacation or picnicking in the park.  Summertime is just filled with fun events that make for great memories!  It's always nice to have a spot to preserve and showcase all the great photos we take during the summer season, isn't it?  This Summertime Folio filled with flips, flaps, tags, pockets and tuck spots is quick to  make, and fun to flip through.

I love it when I can find the absolute perfect ribbon match for a project.  This 5/8" Black Plaid Ribbon lends a country chic vibe to this 6.75" x 7.25" folio.  Tying this triple loop bow was quick and easy, thanks to my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool.  

I've tucked in a loopy Black Burlap String Bow to add extra texture to the bow cluster.  It also really helps my red flowers pop!

Inside the folio, I've created a fun pull out photo album, tied with more of the same black plaid ribbon. The box style pocket holds sweet little tags and mini folio.

Black Plaid Ribbon tops the tags.  But I also added a decorative bow tied with Red Cherry Print. Sheer Organza Ribbon.  I love using organza ribbon on summer projects as it is light and airy!  

I prepared a short 6 minute video tour of the folio so you can see how all the mechanisms work.  I hope you enjoy!

I hope I've shared some ideas that will help you make the most of your beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon! If so, I 'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Mini Album with Decorative Ribbon Spine

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing my latest mini album and I've done something different with my ribbon for this project. I wanted to add my ribbons to the outside of my album and I was going for a real statement--I think I did it! Take a look...
I created 2 puffy bows with 5/8" Satin Swirls Ribbon Daffodil and 2 slightly smaller puffy bows with 3/8" Crosshatch on Tropic Satin Ribbon. Then I hot glued the smaller bows on top of the larger bows and put a hot pink button with Burlap String Black in the center of each bow. I attached the completed puffy bows to the spine of the mini album and they fit perfectly. Like 2 little bursts of sunshine and I really like how it turned out. :) 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you've been inspired to try using your ribbons/trims in a fun and unique new way! Until next time, happy crafting!

Cupcake Thank You Cards with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello everyone and Happy Friday to all!  So today I have 3 Mini Cupcake Thank you cards to share with you all. For my cards today I used 5 different ribbons, a lace and then some adhesives all from RRR store. 

I love when I come across design paper scraps that I haven't seen in forever. The design papers I used on all three of these cards is an OLDIE but GOODY! I found 2 pieces, one large piece and then the blue was a smaller piece that I was able to get a few cards made with . I love the ribbons I chose, they go perfectly with the 3 different cards.

1st Card- I chose to use Really Reasonable Ribbons Brown Diamond Satin.  There are so many different colors to choose from. Then I used the Pink canvas colored band with stitched edge ribbon, I made two bows using each ribbon, and then hot glued them to my card. My card was put together using Scotch Tape, and I just added one piece of design paper glued the Gabrielle Lace to the top and bottom, then added a doily, cupcake, and thank you wording.  It was super easy to make. Can you see the sweet cupcake on the design paper, love it!

2nd Card- I chose to use the Brown Tobacco Seam Binding, ruched up and hot glued on my card.  Then I used the beautiful Nile Blue Crosshatched Satin Ribbon to create my next bow. I used the same Gabrielle lace, but on a different design paper. I also used the cupcake, doily , and same thank you, just colored with two pink Copics . I used the foam tabs to add my cupcake on this one.  Another super fun and easy card to make, love having cute Thank You cards ready to give. 

3rd Card- On this super simple card I used just the design paper, cupcake die, Gabrielle Lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon and then the beautiful blue Mineral Ice shade of Delicate Stitched ribbon, one of my many favorites.

Making Simple Cards Look Simply Lovely

Welcome by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today, everyone!  It's always nice to have you visit us, and I hope you like what you see today as I share these cards with you.  As our name might suggest, this wonderful shop is filled with a very LARGE variety of ribbons, laces, and trims of all sorts....but that's not where it ends.  Really Reasonable Ribbon carries SO much more, including Mulberry FlowersEmbellishments, and....the list goes on and on!  RRR has everything you need to create something extra special.
So, for today's post, I'm sharing two sweet cards, and each one showcases just a few of my favorite products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's SO easy to take a very simple card and make it "Simply Lovely" by adding just a few fabulous RRR products.  This first card was created with an ivory cardstock base and a piece of Carta Bella patterned paper.  I used a second piece of the patterned paper to die-cut a border, and just above it, I added a piece of the beautiful Juliet Natural Crochet Lace.  I added a journalling card and stamped my sentiment on that.  There's a flower sticker at the bottom right of my sentiment card; and at the top left, a beautiful floral treatment that includes a piece of bundled Ivory Burlap String, a 30mm Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Leaf, one Coral Open End Rose, and two Ivory Open End Roses.
I also added some Double Head Stamens including a few green, a few Baby Blue Double Head Stamens, and a few Red Double Head Stamens.  These sweet little accents, Wild Orchid Crafts Double Head Stamens are SO amazing; and at just $1.99 for a bundle of 160 pieces, they're a great bargain item that will add quite a lot of impact to your floral accents (as you can see).
My second card is another fairly simple card.  I used several patterned papers that I attached together with strips of Scor-Tape.  I also added some stickers and did some machine stitching in black.  While the card was was missing something.  Ribbons!  I made a bow using a piece of Pink Center Stitch Burlap Ribbon and a piece of Brown Center Stitch Burlap Ribbon.  I also added some Baby Pink Double Head Stamens and Black Double Head Stamens, and topped the bow with a Pink Trellis Rose.
What I especially love about the Burlap Center Stitch Ribbons are their AMAZING texture.  They, like ALL of the trims at Really Reasonable Ribbon, add so much warmth and depth to your cards and projects.  Everything you need to make your "Simple Cards" look "Simply Lovely" can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon!  Thanks again for stopping by today.

Have a great week,
