Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon June 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 pretty pink and purple floral themed collection of ribbon.

JOIN TODAY!
The June Ribbon Club Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed ribbon collection.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.
 

This month I created a pretty floral birthday card.  It’s no surprise that I tend to favor flowers in my creations and this month is no exception.

My card is topped off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the June Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the center was topped with a Pearl Heart Embellishment.  I also added three ribbon tabs at the bottom right side of the card to balance it out.

Summer Vacation Themed Mini Album

Hello there ribbon lovers!  Today I’m sharing a pretty beach theme mini album I made.  This has been in the works for a while and I finally finished up so I could share.  Mini albums and Ribbon Club Assortments from Really Reasonable Ribbon are a perfect combination since the ribbons are all coordinated to work perfectly together!

This mini album was made using the ribbons and lace from the April Ribbon Club assortment.  Since I didn’t finish the album in a timely manner and the assortment is no longer available in the Ribbon Club category, I will offer it in the assortment category for the rest of June.  You can find it HERE.
 
Since Ribbon Club Assortments work so well for mini’s (and lots of other projects!), why not subscribe today!!  I can envision lots of fun projects with these assortments.
 
Subscribe Today and begin with these two assortments for the
 low price of $17 if you are located in the USA.
Each monthly assortment is a holiday or color themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles!
 

I love some nice coordinating ribbons to top the pull out tags in my mini albums along with embellishing the front and sometimes the spine.  I’m a little rusty and I forgot to plan ahead to add the ribbon to the spine on this one, but I won’t make that mistake again.  The spine looks a little plain without ribbon embellishments other than the strip around the bottom.

 
Below are some photos of the inner pages and flip outs.
 
I have decided to follow some YouTube tutorials to create pages for a while until I’m back in the swing of how things go and what the possibilities are.  I’m finding the videos from Scrapbook Maven to be very good and in the style I like if you want to check out that channel.
 
I also added some small ribbon tabs as pulls for the flip up pages.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you are having a crafty Tuesday!

Decide What to Be and Go Be It

Hi everyone.  Today and I’m sharing an inspirational note card created with dies from Cheery Lynn Designs  and ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I did something a little different today and used one of my favorite frame dies to emboss with.  Instead of putting your base plate, die, paper and then cutting mat, I did base plate, die, paper and embossing mat before the cutting mat.  It gives a pretty good embossing impression which you can see from the photos.  It was kind of hard to pick up in the photos and it looks even better in person.
I used the Ornament 9 die below my sentiment panel and rather than use the entire thing, I cut it in pieces to use as I wanted.
 
Cheery Lynn Dies used:
FRM154 Quatrefoil A2 Frame 2 (used to create embossing on background)
My card is finished off with a pretty bi-color bow that I created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 tool using ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy crafting!
