 Hello everyone and Happy Monday to all!
Today I have a super simple card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon & Club Scrap using the beautiful taffeta ribbon , netting and embellishments, and Club Scraps Delft Collection!

On my card I made a big white bow using RRR Taffeta ribbon, and love the way it looks. I tried to keep my card simple, which is always hard for me to do as I love lots of layers and embellishments. Next I chose one of my top favorite Club Scrap Collections, this one is the Delft Collection and I love it!
My card consist of 2 layers from the Delft collection. I did the bottom layer is leftover design paper, then added some of Really Reasonable Ribbons White Netting in 1.5" before adding the sentiment layer. For my sentiment layer I stamped the delft stamps and colored, then used Really Reasonable Ribbons 3-D Foam tabs to pop it up. Next I added the white bow, and lastly I added some of the RRR Resin flower embellishments.

Super fast and easy card to make when you need a last minute thank you!
Hope you enjoyed my post for today!
Thank you for looking and have a lovely week!
hugs to all,

Love You to Pieces

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to you all!
Today I have a sweet little card I made using seven of the beautiful Cheery Lynn Designs Dies. Love using these beautiful dies as they are so easy and fun to use on cards/layouts, and mini albums. I will list all dies I chose to use below :)

Sentiment is from The Project Bin Stamps Spencer's Set!
I used the sweet Graphic45 design paper on my card along with the Cheery Lynn Doily Die, and added sewing to the layers.

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies Used:
B879 Antique lock and key set
B882 Antique Dress Forms
DL260 Priscilla Doily
Pierced Stacker 2 XL20 Die
Oval dies
Shasta Daisy Die Strip B310
B777 Floral Bouquet Kit

So I ended up cutting out the Antique Lock and Key using the coordinating design paper, then I distressed it with a purple ink, and lastly added some Stickles to both.

For the dress form I used another coordinating design paper, distressed it a bit, and added some Stickles. Super fun and easy to create.

The doily was cut using white card stock, and so was the oval. Next I used Bazzill shimmer card stock in purple for the layers.

Shasta Daisies were cut in white and airbrushed. I added some embellishments to the centers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

The greenery is from the Floral Bouquet Dies and cut out in white, then distressed in green.

Ribbon and embellishments are from Really Reasonable Ribbon

I hope you enjoyed my card today!

Childhood Memories Layout

Hello everyone, and Happy Thursday to all!
Today I'm sharing a super sweet Layout I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Ribbon, Embellishments, and Scor-Tape they carry in their shop. Love how this sweet layout of my 3 kids turned out. This one photo was taken back in 1997 when they were all little, and love how it goes perfectly with the design paper too!
I really enjoyed creating this layout for todays post. It was fun trying the different design papers and getting everything laid out. I love the colors/prints I chose to use on this one. All the flowers and dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs, and all the centers of the flowers are embellishments from RRR. I will list right below.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Its so much fun to add the photo's to layouts that we create, sometimes I don't add photo's, as im not sure what ones I want, or I haven't printed them yet, however this one was set aside for this collection of paper, and it brought back so many wonderful memories of this time when they were young, miss those days. Now they are all grown and have their own lives.
I ran the gingham ribbon down the center of my one banner layer in kinda the middle of the page, then added a bow. Next I chose to use the Red polka dot satin and made another bow to scrunch in the center of my black gingham bow.
Flowers were cut using the coordinating dp from the Mother Goose collection. I added the embellishments to all flowers, and also distressed them using ink.  My one covered button I distressed it yellow, as I didn't have a yellow one to use.
Flowers/ Flourishes, Doily are all Cheery Lynn Beautiful Dies. LOVE these

Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!

A Sweet Friendship

 Hello and Happy Saturday to you all! Today's sweet card was designed for Cheery Lynn Designs using 7 BEAUTIFUL Cheery Lynn Dies! To start with I chose to use the 2 different sizes of the Gardenia die. I LOVE the layering design of this die. I also love how Cheery Lynn makes them into strips, as I love that you can run it through the machine so easy and have lots of cuts . Oooo im also LOVING my Big Sister Die cut machine that I got through Cheery Lynn Designs! LOVE it more than the Big shots machine, I guess because you can adjust the level of pressure on your dies. Its awesome!!! If you haven't seen this machine, you have to watch their video.
 Enough of me rambling on....hehehee now onto my card for today.

On this card here I chose to use some older Crate paper, an make some chocolate looking flowers. LOVE these gardenia's ( B433 Small Gardenia Strip & B339 Gardenia Strip)and how they turned out. I spritzed them with spritz spray to give them some glitz, and to shape them easier. Love these!!!

The leaves B241 Rose Leaf Strip and the Flourish #8 were cut out using a green and then distressed.

Sentiment from The Project bin #bff was stamped on the LPC4 circle die, and then layered on the DL272 Doily Die. Layered behind this is the DL282 Alpine Flourish Doily

Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbons Delicate Stitched Satin
Thank you for stopping by, and please leave a comment letting me know what you think of my card for today!

We also call her Mieshy...hehehe She is the most loving , caring, & sweetest dog ever. She has the best personality, and its very sweet. Never has she shown a mean side at all. She loves all other dogs, no matter what size they are. She also loves kitties, and gets so cute when she see's them. I have never had a dog listen so well, even when she goes for rides on our golf cart. She see's a cat, and cries, but says right by our side. Love this little Princess Miesha Bear! Hope you enjoy seeing her sweet photo's from when she 4 1/2 to 5 months old in these photos.

 On my page here I chose to use the beautiful design paper from this months Vintage Botany Deluxe Kit. Omygosh I love all the designs and colors in this kit.

On this page I used 1 12" x 12" print for the backing, its backed onto the Purple(BEAUTIFUL) card stock! I also used this same purple for the flowers that are spritz with a gold glitter. Next I chose to use the photo mattes that come in this kit for dear Miesha's photo's, lastly adding sewing to keep them in place.

The other flowers were cut using the 8 1/2" x 11" print card stock, its the one with the botanicals going down the left side. I then airbrushed them using a purple copic marker, and added some sweet flower embellishments to the centers of all the flowers.

Tags are from the cut-a-part sheets, and I used the Glassine Bag for the gold pop up butterfly tag, that also came in this beautiful kit.

Vintage Botany Card

 Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to you all! Today's card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using their Beautiful Satins. This one is the Satin with Grosgrain Edge, and its absolutely Gorgeous! Love how easy the bows come together using this ribbon. To see all Satins please visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store here.

To create this card here, I chose to use the New Vintage Botany collection from Club Scrap. So the design paper is 2 different designs, with stenciling on the 1st layer, then stamping the flower from the Vintage Botany Jumbo Unmounted Stamps and coloring it with copics for the flower image. Paper & stencil are all from the one Vintage Botany Deluxe collection. the 2nd layer is from the 8 1/2 x 11 design paper sheet called Deluxe Lt. Green. This collection is absolutely beautiful!

knew Really Reasonable Ribbon would have the perfect ribbon to go with this kit, so I chose the satin with Grosgrain edge, and its perfect. RRR also has some other beautiful satins and taffeta's that match perfectly. LOVE this!!

Next I colored my image with copic markers R85 & RV11 for the flowers, then for the greenery I chose YG03 & G99 they worked perfectly! For the center of the big flower I used some stickles in the color of fruit punch. I have had my stickles for about 9 1/2 years, and they still work perfectly.

I added sewing with my machine, in a light pink, and then added gel dots in white.

My layers are popped with RRR foam Squares. and the layers were glued together before sewing using a small piece of Scor-Tape, both of these can be found at Really Reasonable Ribbon under adhesives

I hope you enjoyed my post for today, as I en joyed creating this card to share with you all! Please leave a comment letting me know what you think :)

 Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to you all! Today I have a fun summery card I created for Cheery Lynn Designs using the beautiful floral & Doily dies. I have to say I LOVE the wide variety of dies that Cheery Lynn carries, and all the different Beautiful Doily's, its a crafters haven....hehehee My card was also designed for The Project bin using their super darling stamps!

For my card today, I started off by using a paper collection called sugar rush by basicgrey, im sure its an old old collection, as I have hardly any sheets left in this 6 x 6 paper pad....hehehehe

Next I took one of the coordinating design papers and cut out my Small Gardenia strip flowers B433. I love the look of these grey polka dot gardenia's. They were super easy to make and all I did was add some pearls to the centers.

Next I cut out some of the Floral Bouquet Kit greenery B777 to use with these beautiful gardenia's, and I LOVE how these turned out using 2 different Club scrap green inks, and a blending foam dabber. LOVE the look of the leaves!!

Doily Layers were done using 3 different Cheery Lynn Doily's
DL282 Alpine Flourish Doily
DL280 Royal Scandinavian Doily
DL232 Ankara Lace Doily
These were all cut out using white card stock, and layered within the layers of my card. I LOVE adding lots of layers to all my cards, its so fun to create them with layers :)

Sentiment was stamped using The Project Bins Bazinga! stamp set, and 2 different blue ink pens.

Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is a Taffeta in the color Maize.  and I used the beautiful pearls from Really Reasonable Ribbons Embellishment line.
Lastly I added some fun sewing to all my layers.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Happy Birthday

Hello crafty friends and Happy Friday to you all! Today's card is a super fun birthday card created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful Satin Ribbon that came in last months Ocean Breeze Assortment. Love the colors in this club assortment! My card was also created for The Project Bin using the darling sentiment from Jukebox Birthday set.
 I made my big bow using the satin, and love how it turned out. Easy when you use the beautiful and nice ribbons that Bonnie carries over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon shop. I also used the foam tabs that can be found here.

The flowers were done using dies, and coordinating design paper. I did use the Glass flower technique that I do on a lot of my flowers. I love how these look in person. Not like paper :) heheheh for the centers I chose to use some of my beads from my collection. I have Hundreds of these that I ended up with from my moms best friend.

The stamp is from The Project Bin, and it is super cute. I did this stamping with the Mini Misti tool. Love that tool for stamping. I have to say you never get a bad stamped image using this, what a life saver .

The dp is from American Crafts, and I added sewing to complete my card for today.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by!
