Z-Fold Chick and lamb Card/Bow Video's

 Hello everyone today im sharing a Z-fold card with 2 Bow tutorials for Really Reasonable Ribbon. 
It's nice to be able to do different folds on cards, and to make space for notes and such. On the inside there is room for a not on the small fold, I think i will add a tag or something there. There is also another frame on the inside, and there is room to write on the back as well.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all Really Reasonable Ribbon !!! Bonnie carries Lots of beautiful ribbons, and 1 of my many favorites is the satin collections. I also LOVE the Silky Crush and her Seam binding
Really Reasonable Ribbons I used are:

The Little Chick and Lamb stamp are from Michelles Scrapbooking and More
The Sentiment is from /Michelles Scrapbooking and More
Spellbinders/Michelles scrapbooking and more
For my image I colored her with copics, and then cut her out. My sentiment is tamped on a CottageCutz Love Tag..

Cottage Cutz/Spring Chick a dee/& Video

Hello everyone today I'm sharing a Sweet Cottage Cutz Spring Chick-a-dee from The Scrapping Cottage! I've also done a video showing how I colored her and with what colors.
My card is the opposite of the Z-Fold card, when open it should fold like a Z but i wanted to do mine a little different, so it folds in :) 
I love Cottage Cutz Spring Chick-a-dee, she is sooo cute, and super fun to color. I almost was going to use the Dusting technique i love doing on these but decided to color with copics today.

Ive added some pearls to both their dresses, and to the flower by the mailbox. The LOVE is stamped from Cottage Cutz Vintage Key.

mailbox was dusted with Tim Holtz Colors-
The Post was dusted in-Tea Die
Mailbox=Spun Sugar
Letter in Mailbox=antique linen

ABC Challenge, J is for Jazz it up
Crafty Catz Weekly challenge/Favorite things(Pink, Ribbon,Flowers,Cottage Cutz)
Simply Create Too/Add Sunshine to your day( I added a sun too)
Totally PaperCrafts/Ribbon and Bows

Copic Colors I used for Spring Chick-a-dee
For Spring Chick=YR31,Y11,Y08
Cheek Color=R20
Beak and Feet=YR09,YR15
Dress & Hat=RV34,RV23
These colors were used on this Spring Chick-a-dee below. and all the chicks above, the only color i cant remember is the one on the front of the card, since that green was used on the hat a few days ago. I think for the dress on the front I listed it in the video below.

Hope you enjoy my video! 
I did forget to show how i add the cheeks in the video since it was running out of time, but I just add them with R20 and if you want to soften them use the clear blender copic. I didnt soften them in these. I also added some white gel pen to the cheeks.
All Ribbon used is PINK Satin From Really Reasonable Ribbon Found Here~Ive used it on the front lower right corner, and on the chick's hat in the picture right above my video. 

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Hello everyone ♥I wanted to share a card I made using ♥Really Reasonable Ribbons♥ beautiful♥ Satin♥ and♥ Polka dots ribbons♥. LOVE these as they are my FAV's but all Really Reasonable Ribbon is my Favorite as that is all I use :)
I used for the border the double ruffled edge 1.5" white Satin ribbon, I think this ribbon is perfect for borders on cards,scrapbook pages, and photo albums. Then I used the pink Satin with grosgrain edge ribbon on top of that. I used the 1/2 " scor tape to hold it down on the white ribbon. For my double bow, I used the same pink satin ribbon  to make the larger bow, and then the white organza with polka dot for the smaller bow on top. I then added a fabric covered brad on top.

♥Sweetheart mini album♥

Hello everyone today i'm sharing a mini Album designed for
So for my album I used the SweetHeart Flower Cottage Cutz,to make my flowers for this album. I will have a tutorial coming soon on this. I didnt get to finish my album due to having my 2nd surgery, but all is going well, and when i finish it i will post more pictures for you all to see. Now I used the tags for the front pocket, i put 3 in there. And then used the darling oval one for the front, i figured it could have the title added later. :)

The Love tags are a perfect size for any card,page, or album.

For this top page i used the Sweet Sign Shape with the wording Sweet! LOVe this shape its a perfect sweet sign. I added some pearls to the sign too with some little white gel dots. Now I also made a matte for a photo, and then added one of the new darling tags from The Love Tag Set

For this next page there is another photo matte and i was thinking of adding some tags, if i do i will take more pictures and post them later with the rest of my book. 
These flowers are also from the Sweetheart Flower Cottage Cutz, and there are sooo many different flowers to be made with this one set. LOVE LOVE LOVE this set!

I used all valentine design papers for my album, and ribbon is all from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I used the beautiful pleated ribbons, and the satins,leaves, and lace. All can be found here/

. All flowers were made with card stock and some were distressed.. I used Scrap Dots for the dimension on my flowers, its a liquid glue, and works perfect for flowers.
