October Blog Hop with Craft Hoarders Anonymous and Mulberry Paper Video Tutorial

Welcome to the October Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop!  
You should be coming from Donna’s Blog.  After visiting with me, hop on over to Nancy’s Blog next.  To start at the beginning of the hop, and for a full list of Blogger’s, go to Gloria’s Blog.
Yes, I’m aware it’s still early October, 
BUT… if you want to actually kick back and relax and enjoy the Christmas season this year, you need to get crackin’ on those Christmas projects!
My gorgeous bow was created with a couple of ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon ‘Crazy for Christmas’ October Ribbon Club Assortment.  This assortment contains 9 styles and a total of 17 yards of ribbon or trim.  Each month you receive a color or holiday themed assortment of ribbon.  What a fun way to build your ribbon stash and try new ribbon styles.  JOIN TODAY!  Gift subscriptions are available as well.
My pretty bi-color double-loop bow was created on my Bow-it-All V2.0 tool.  For a video tutorial on how I made this bow, please click HERE.
I love mulberry paper and I have been hoarding it since the mid-1990’s!  It seems to have gone out of favor with card makers, but I still use it all the time and I always get questions about what it is, how did I get the fuzzy edges, etc.  So, I’ve created a video to show you just how I use it.

Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun! New Halloween Themed Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon


Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a Halloween Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.
I used a couple of ribbon styles from the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Ribbon Club assortment on my card.  It’s such a fun mix.  It’s still available for a very limited time!
I found the fun sentiment in a set from DigiTreat on Etsy.  I think it’s adorable.  The beautiful flower was made with the Shasta Daisy die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Watch for a tutorial for this flower soon!
I made a shabby bow for me card using my Bow-it-All V2.0.  You can view a video tutorial on how to create this bow HERE.

Autumn is the Time to Harvest Friendship

Hi friends.  I can’t believe September is almost over.  I just love Autumn and it seems to fly by every year!  I love making projects with rich Autumn colors and it’s never done without a beautiful bow using ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon!

The pretty bi-color double-loop bow is made using Maize Checkerboard Satin Ribbon and Tangerine Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon on my Bow-it-All V2.0.  To see a tutorial on how I created this bow, please visit my YouTube Channel HERE.
I made the pretty paper flowers using the Shasta Daisy Die from Cheery Lynn Designs.  I love making my own flowers because I can create them in the perfect color to match my project.  BUT, if you don’t have time to create your own flowers, Really Reasonable Ribbon carries a large variety of Mulberry Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts that work really well too.
