This month I created a pretty and sparkly Winter themed card.
The Mexican Tile Frame die is not a holiday die, but I think it has a Christmas-y winter feel to it, don’t you? I also added some pretty 25mm Cottage Roses under the sentiment for a soft feminine touch which plays nicely with the torn mulberry paper layer.
Hi there fellow ribbon lovers. I’m sneaking in with one more Autumn themed card before things switch over to all Winter/Christmas. I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but Autumn hardly happened here in the New York. We literally went from a/c one week to heat the next. Don’t even get me started on how we missed out on the autumn colors . But, there’s always next year…..
So this birthday card is sporting some fun autumn colors and it features some pretty ribbons and mulberry flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon. My Mom’s birthday is in mid-October, so this color combo was perfect for her card.
Of course I waited until the last minute to make it (what else is new…) so this was a pretty simple card. It has some layers of course, but they take no time to cut. Instead of making flowers, this time I hit my stash of mulberry flowers and selected some Red Cottage Roses to add below the sentiment. These pre-made mulberry flowers are a great time saver and great to have on hand. They are also very inexpensive. Be sure to take a look at all the options in the Mulberry Flower section at Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Mini albums are a great place to use up those short ribbon pieces that are too nice to part with!
I’m really interested in the construction aspect of mini albums and I love making them, but I don’t have a lot of experience. I did some book binding many years ago, so the cover construction is familiar, but there is so much to learn as far as making fun and interactive pages. I find the best learning method is to go to YouTube and watch what others are doing, try to replicate it and then use what you learn to create your own style. There are a LOT of great album makers out there, and so much to learn.
Since it’s hard to photograph a mini album so you can see the details, I created a ‘flip through’ video.

I embellished the front of my mini album a little with some round and heart shaped embellishments. RRR had a large selection of embellishments for every occasion. Check out the high quality, low cost embellishment offerings HERE.
I finished off the front cover of my mini album with my signature bi-color double-loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool.
