Really Reasonable Ribbon March Blog Hop


Welcome to the March Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop.


If you arrived here from Cheryl’s blog, you are on the right track. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a bright and cheerful rainbow assortment of ribbon. 

Not a member yet?
This pretty Spring Rainbow themed assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon and trim.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed collection of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new styles.

I tried to stay clean and flat today and this card is perfect for mailing.  You can include lots of ribbon on a card you plan to mail, you just have to be creative!  This is also a great way to use up those scraps of ribbon.

I’m entering my card in the following challenges:

For You My Friend

Hi Friends.  Today I’m sharing a CAS card using the new Yin Yang die from Cheery Lynn Designs.
 This is another die that needs very little to go with it.  It’s a real attention getter!

I used a shimmery cardstock for a little added pizzazz and went with traditional black and white for the yin yang and added a pop of red and a simple sentiment.

I finished my card off with a bi-color double loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using white and black Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

New ‘Show Me the Green’ Themed Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.

This time we have a ‘Show Me the Green’ Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

My card features my very favorite Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon with some very cheerful Citrus Chevron Striped Grosgrain Ribbon wrapped around the middle of the card for a splash of color.

My dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs and I pulled out my Dylusions Fronds of Foliage Stencil and created the subtle background using my Clarity Stencil Brush Set and some green Distress Inks.

My perky bi-color bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Daffodil and Kiwi Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

For a video tutorial on how to create this fabulous bow, please click HERE.
I hope you’ll head over to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog and play along with our challenge.  Any type of project is welcome.

Thanks for stopping by!
