Happy Halloween One and All!

Hi friends.  Happy Halloween to all!  
The big day is finally here and all the cute little ghosts and goblins will be running around the neighborhood having fun and collecting treats today.  I’m finishing out the Halloween crafting season for this year with one more ‘too cute to be scary’ Halloween card embellished with some of my favorite ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The Black Houndstooth Plaid Ribbon is one of my new favorite ribbons.  There is a HUGE selection of plaid and gingham ribbon styles at Really Reasonable Ribbon and it’s really hard to pick a favorite!
My pretty double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 Tool.  It’s so quick and easy to tie gorgeous bows with this tool!  To view all my Bow-it-All video tutorials, please click HERE.
I also ran a piece of the black houndstooth plaid ribbon across the center of the card and topped it with the super cute Itsy Bitsy Spider Grosgrain Ribbon.  This one if my very favorite Halloween styles.  How can you not love those adorable spiders?!!

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.

Please, Please (DON’T) Let it Snow!

Hi friends.  I hope your summer is going well.  I’m with you if you dislike seeing holiday stuff appearing on shelves and online already, but if you are a crafter, you need to start planning now if you want to kick back when December arrives and enjoy the holiday…..  So, how many of you have actually ever accomplished that??  Certainly not me but it sounds really nice, doesn’t it?

Well, ready or not, Christmas will be here before you know it and Really Reasonable Ribbon is ready with a full selection of Autumn, Halloween AND Christmas styles in stock and ready to go.  Shop early for the best selection.

My bi-color double-loop bow is made using 5/8″ Christmas Red/Green Plaid and 5/8″ Emerald Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  For a video tutorial on how to create this gorgeous bow, please click HERE.  I just love how a beautiful bow is the perfect finishing touch for a card, don’t you?
I created my paper roses using a the terrific tea rose dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.
