Coffee Filter Flowers video/Happy Mother's Day

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to all! Today's card was designed for Victorine Originals "Flower Challenge" that we have going on right now. 
So for my card I decided to make some CottageCutz Sweetheart Flowers with Coffee Filter, YEP you heard right.....LOL I used coffee filters to create these beautiful/different flowers. I also used Glimmer Mist to give them their color. I have a video below on this.

I LOVE Victorine Originals Stamps, they carry sooo many BEAUTIFUL stamps, and this is just 1 of many . I love the "Happy Mother's Day stamp, and there are others too.

I used my flowers with some green leaves that I cut off some old flowers, i keep the leaves and such in my flower drawers. I also used some Pearl Swirls, and a Butterfly. The Brown Double Ruffled Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

My card Measures 6 1/2 x 3

This week I've been working with some FAST & EASY card's, I figured I would show some idea's on cards to make under 15 minutes!

Another Fun Fold Card ♥♥♥Thank you♥♥♥

♥♥♥Hello everyone, Cheryl here with another Fun Fold Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon. Todays Fold is a Z Card Fold. On my card I used several different ribbons,trim,and lace from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
  ♥♥♥Z fold Card 6 x 17" long♥♥♥
I love making different card folds, they are super fun and super cute. I love this one, since it has different scenes on it. I used for the front of my card Really Reasonable Ribbons Pink Satin in 2 different sizes. I also used the Moss Leaves Trim, and Noelle Lace. for the big bow I used the Pink Double Ruffled edge ribbon. I also used Tilda,her bench, and Wild Orchid flowers. All direct links are listed here below :)
♥♥♥Ribbons Used♥♥♥
Pink Satin
Moss Green Leaves
Double Ruffled Edge Pink Ribbon
Noelle White Crocheted Lace

♥♥♥Next you see is Tilda and a CottageCutz magnolia Doily, I figured I could add a stamp sentiment here or some writing. 

 ♥♥♥In my next picture you can see the entire card open. I think its neat to have the writing hidden, you see the tab in the back, well that pulls out for double sided writing, there is enough room to write on the front and the back of this pull tab panel. 

♥♥♥CottageCutz Dies Used♥♥♥
Picket Fence Border die
Window Die
Magnolia Doily Die
These are all from the CottageCutz Spring Release !!

♥♥♥close up of the front. I used the CottageCutz Picket Fence border die, and ran RRR Satin Pink through it.
♥♥♥Here on this page, I added Tilda's Tree, and Tilda Sitting. Her bird, and some clouds die cut pieces. I stamped on them with Su! sentiments. 

On my back page, I continued on with the Cottagecutz Picket Fence border, and then used the New CottageCutz window. Perfect for writing. I also added another Tilda and another Bird and cloud here.

 All my Tilda Stamps are from ♥♥♥Michelle's Scrapbooking and More!!♥♥♥

♥♥♥Now you can see where the writing is hidden here. LOVE this!!! Also LOVE working with Really Reasonable Ribbon!!! Thank you Bonnie for everything and Im super EXCITED to be designing for another Term!!! I couldnt imagine life without RRR :) Its my FAVORITE!!!! 


♥♥♥Thank you all for looking and have a lovely day!!

♥♥♥CottageCutz mini Toilet paper album&Video♥♥♥

♥♥♥Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all!!!! Todays post is all about my Toilet Paper Mini Album I designed for ♥♥♥CottageCutz ♥♥♥using the Beautiful Springtime Release.

♥♥♥So for my Mini Album I used 3 toilet paper rolls. I save all our rolls and make DARLING mini's out of them all. 

♥♥♥For this one I used Basicgrey dp and then CottageCutz dies, and Really Reasonable Ribbon.
♥♥♥CottageCutz Dies used are♥♥♥

♥♥♥There is enough room inside this mini to add photo's, these are super fun to make, if you havent tried making one you will surely have to.

♥♥♥I normally flatten my rolls and then run them through the big shots machine to flatten more. Next I will use the bone folder to give a nice crease.

♥♥♥I love these DARLING Mini Ladybugs they are sooo SWEET!!! I added the Viva Pearl pen to them, and set aside to dry. Next is the BEAUTIFUL Lace Envelope from the Tea Time Collection, I love this tooo!! there are sooo many possibilities with this envelope.

 ♥♥ I Love this back page too, since I used the Flower Vine from the Spring Release, and then the tag is cut from the Lace Envelope. I also added some buttons :)
