Floral Happy Birthday to You Card

Hi there crafty friends.  Today I’m sharing a pretty pink and purple floral birthday card featuring some gorgeous dies from Cheery Lynn Designs along with ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

 

It’s no secret that I love to create three dimensional flowers, but today I’m using a die that I don’t often use.  The flowers today were created with the Judy’s Bloom die.  It makes really lovely flowers.  For the larger flower in the center, I layered petals using both sizes in the die set and the smaller flowers just use the smaller flower die.  I made the flowers with some pretty Distress Ink paper I made and the foliage is a mix of the dies from the Flourish 6 and Flourish 13 die sets.

 

For my background I layered the Quatrefoil A2 Frame 1 cut in white over another piece of Distress Ink paper, layered it on purple and pink cardstock and backed it with white mulberry paper.  I ran a layered piece of ribbon across the middle of my card behind the sentiment panel.

Cheery Lynn Dies used:
C184 Judy’s Bloom

My card was topped off with a pretty bi-color bow I created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added a pretty Pearl Heart Shaped Embellishment to the center of the bow.

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!
