Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Double Faced Poppy Red Satin

Other Supplies

Candy Bar Mini's (4)
1/2 of Life Savers Roll

I used a leftover Pringle's Container, and whipped out the inside of it. Next I took wrapping paper and covered the container. I just measures the width and then cut a piece and used the Scor-tape to hold it on. Then I hot glued all the face pieces, and set it aside. Next I added the four candy bars to the back end, then the bell, and then the smoke stack(life savers)with a reeses cup on top. The the wheels are suckers, I hot glued those as well.

I hope you have enjoyed our Hop so far today as there is a LOT of inspiration using the December Ribbon Kit from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I just LOVE all the ribbons in this months assortment!

Today's Project Life was made for my Son! I'm new to Project Life, and it has been a challenge for me,as its so simple, and I love detailed stuff....heheheheehe  This is my 2nd page I have made, and I love this one! 

I used the Ribbons and Lace from this months Ribbon Club assortment. LOVE the colors as they worked perfect for my sons page. All the ribbons in this assortment are Beautiful, and I enjoyed working with them. 

 For the Pennants I used CottageCutz Pennants, and the lettering is also CottageCutz Alphabet too. I think these also were perfect for my page. I added some of the white lace behind the pennants, and then glued them onto the blue satin with sheer ribbon. For the bows I used the Satin Polka Dot that is in this kit. Next for the photo, I used MS punch, and then added the RRR striped ribbon along the top and bottom.
So for the bottom inserts I used the Satin Polka Dot, and then the lace on the photo. Next for the right side insert, this will be where the writing will go. I added some Brown Satin, Blue Polka Dot Satin, the Blue Satin w/sheer, and the stripe , then added buttons for embellishing. The circle die cut is from Spellbinders. I want to add 6 months to the bottom right corner.

1st Project Life

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with my 1st Project Life page designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon. This will be for my youngest daughter Breanna. 

I have never thought of making project life before since its a simple way of scrapbooking. But just recently I started working at American Crafts Warehouse Sale, and everyone is buying it up. So I thought maybe I could get creative and add stuff I love working with in this album. For my 1st page this is a little simple, but I will be working on adding other goodies to these pages for this album. 

I left off all writing, it will go on the insert with the B. Next The title will go where my watermark is. I'm going to combine this with layouts as well, so it wont be a weekly journal like most are doing, its going to be more like a scrapbook, but done a little differently...hehehehe

I used Really Reasonable Ribbon,Lace, and trim on my inserts here.
Supply List:
Bead Trim (Pink)

Other supplies Used:
Project Life Page Protector
Project Life Baby Girl Insert Cards
CIP's Angel Dust
Glue Pad
American Crafts Pink Polka Dot flowers
Flower buttons with shanks removed
Vintage White Lace, My stash

For the  CottageCutz vanity I colored it with cip's pink, and then used the glue pad to add glue to my pieces, and lastly added the Angel Dust Glitter to give the look to the vanity. The mirror was colored with a blue and grey copic marker, and then again rubbed the glue pad over it, and added clear embossing powder and heated, to give its look.
Next the cushion top for the stool,I added glitter glass to it.

For the area with the White Vintage Lace, I just glued the lace down first, then added the brown RRR Lace, then the Bead trim. I will add a Title to this area later on. I was thinking of Playtime. Not sure though yet :)

I hope you enjoyed today's post, this is very new to me, as I have never done Project Life before, but again was inspired by so many customers to try it out :) Also I think this would be a better way for me to scrap for my son, as I need it to be pretty simple. However We can always add Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon to any project :)

Hugs to all,
