Congratulations on Your Engagement!

Hello ribbon lovers.  I hope you are all enjoying the January Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I love pink, so I’m in heaven this month.

My niece got engaged in December and I’m so excited for her.  I decided to honor the occasion with a pretty floral engagement card and this pretty new Tallulah Frill Layering frame die from the Chantilly Paper Lace Collection from Spellbinders was perfect for an engagement card along with some pretty Mulberry Paper Roses and a gorgeous pink bow.

What better reason to pull out the Mulberry Paper Roses than an engagement card and I had the perfect sentiment in a stamp set from Inspired by Stamping.
I topped the card off with a pretty bi-color bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the January Ribbon Club Assortment.  This assortment is themed for Valentines Day, but all the ribbons work perfectly well for other occasions too.  When is pink not a great color option?!!  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

For a video tutorial on how to make this pretty bow, please click HERE.

November Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop

Welcome to the November Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop.

You should be coming from Debbie’s Blog.  After visiting with me, hop on over to Donna’s blog next.  To start at the beginning of the hop, and for a full blog hop list, go to Gloria’s Blog.

You will find a video tutorial for the mulberry flower ornaments below along with another video tutorial on how I created the pretty bow topper.

The ornaments were made to coordinate with the October and November Ribbon Club Assortments from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
There is a special going on through the end of November for US residents to begin their subscription with the October/November combo pack for the special introductory price of just $17.00.

The October assortment has 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and trim and the November assortment has 9 styles and a total of 18 yards of ribbon.  Each monthly assortment is a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.

The ornament below is the one I created in the video.  This one uses a little over 80 20mm Open Roses.  I think you could get away with four 20-packs with careful spacing.
I’m entering my ornament in the following challenges:

This ornament was created with one 100-pack of Sweetheart Flowers.  On this one I used the white with red center sweetheart flowers to coordinate with the October Ribbon Club Assortment, but any of the colors would be beautiful.
This ornament below was also made with 20mm Open Roses and this one was made using the color palette from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.
The ribbon ornament toppers below were made on the EK Tools Bow Making Template (which has been sitting on the shelf with all the other items I ‘had to have and never used’ for years) using ribbon from each of the Ribbon Club Assortments.  The centers were finished off with larger Mulberry Roses.  I have a video tutorial below on how to make these as well.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #174 – Anything Goes with Ribbon

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

This time around we have an Anything Goes with Ribbon Theme.

This month the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment is a beautiful mix of Christmas themed ribbon.

Not a member yet?

The October Assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon and lace.  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.

My tags today were created with the fun Penguin Pals set and the Winter Holiday Words set from Cheery Lynn Designs along with the Nesting Doll Oval #1 set.  They make for adorable gift tags when adorned with some of the ribbon from the October Ribbon Club Assortment.  I also added a pretty 15mm Red Open Rose to each tag.
My tags have been entered in the following challenges:
