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

RRRChallengeBadgeThis time we have a Winter Holiday Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.12-2-16-2

I did a CAS style card today with the pretty Winter Neighborhood Border die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  The sentiment is from the Big Holiday set from Inspired by Stamping.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using two of the ribbons from the December Winter Blues Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The December Winter Blues Ribbon Club Assortment is a pretty mix of blues and silver.  I just love this color combination!dec2016lge

Really Reasonable Ribbon July Blog Hop

Welcome to the RRR July Blog Hop.

If you arrived here from Amber’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 fabulous black and white collection of ribbons that is a great base for your ribbon collection.  You can use these ribbons on just about any project!

These fun monthly color or holiday themed ribbon collections are a great way to build your ribbon stash and try out different ribbon styles.  Subscribe today and begin with this gorgeous assortment.

I created a beautiful black and white bi-color bow on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using two of the ribbon styles from the July assortment.  For a video tutorial on how this bow was created, please click HERE.
I ran a piece of the same black checkerboard satin ribbon that I used for the bow across the middle of the card under the sentiment and I topped it with the black giraffe print grosgrain ribbon.  Just enough ribbon pizzazz for a CAS card.

I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create #132 – Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination #41 – Anything Goes
Mod Squad Challenge – Fast and Easy
Penny’s Paper Crafty #235 – Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday #191 – Anything Goes
Loves Rubber Stamps #159 – Anything Goes

Yes, I did a monthly headband too.  
I selected the black giraffe print grosgrain ribbon and I added some solid white Grosgrain Ribbon for the ‘twist’ part.  I just love how this turned out.  The contrasting colors really makes the design ‘pop’.

If you’d like to make one for your favorite young lady, you can view my Woven Ribbon Headbands with a Twist tutorial on YouTube.

One Year Older…

Hi friends.  Today I have a CAS (Clean and Simple) birthday card that would be perfect for a male friend or family member.  
I don’t like to put bows on my masculine cards, but I really can’t resist just a little something…..  I think Navy Burlap String from Really Reasonable Ribbon is the perfect embellishment.  I found a funky button in my stash with 6 holes and I threaded the string through that.  Nice and masculine, right?
