I love this Vintage Christmas Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well.  I tied a basic double-loop bow with my Bow-it-All V2.0.  The plaid is just so pretty that there was no need for a super fancy bow.  To view a video tutorial on Bow Making Basics with the Bow-it-All Tool, please click HERE.

RRR Challenge ‘Get a Head Start on Christmas’ with Ribbon or Trim Theme

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a ‘Get a Head Start on Christmas’ Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

While I love the traditional red/green Christmas color combination, I also like to play around with non-traditional Christmas colors and that’s what I’ve done today.  Really Reasonable Ribbon has a fun 3/8″ Christmas Multi-dots Grosgrain Ribbon which I used under the sentiment below and they also have a matching Christmas Vertical Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and a Christmas Trees Multi Satin Ribbon as well as a Christmas Lights Multi Satin Ribbon in the non-traditional Christmas color theme.

I added a simple double-loop bow to both my card and ornament.  The bows were made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 and you can view a beginner video tutorial HERE.
My projects today also showcase two colors of beautiful Glitz Ribbon.  This beautiful glitzy ribbon is perfect for your holiday projects and is available in 4-yard pieces, 25-yard spools or in the two assortments shown below.  It’s wonderful to work with and ties fabulous bows as you can see above.
The beautiful snowflake die is from Cheery Lynn Designs and it’s one of my favorite dies.

Cheery Lynn Designs October 2015 New Release

Today is new release day at Cheery Lynn Designs
The design team has come up with some fantastic projects to showcase the new dies.  My card uses two gorgeous new doily sets.
I started with a 5-1/2″ square base.  I made a light line down the center both ways in pencil and then two additional lines on each side 1-1/4″ from the center line.  I then used the small domino shaped dies from the Scandinavian Boutique Stacker die to create the lacy background.  I placed the die next to my lines in each of the 8 rectangles one at a time and ran it though my machine.  The result is a beautiful lacy background.  I added a piece of 5-3/8″ square white cardstock to the back so the design really pops.
I then cut some circle layers using Circle Classic Large Stacker XL4 and Circle Pierce and Cut Large LPC-4 and topped them off with the new and gorgeous Scandinavian Circle Doily.  I used my flower from my Shasta Daisy Flower video tutorial in the center.  The sentiment is mounted on the smallest Pierced Banners die DL303 and I dove tailed both ends.  The final embellishment is a pretty double-loop bow made on my Bow-it-All V2.0 using White Glitz Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I’m entering my card in the following challenges:
