Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to all! Today I wanted to share my Mini Tea Pot Album designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon and The Scrapping Cottage using the DARLING CottageCutz Tea Time Release & LOTS of RRR!!!
To tie my album together i used RRR Ivory Double Faced Satin Ribbon. I also used the Seam binding that Bonnie Carries for my CottageCutz Tea Time Tags in the front pocket. Next I added lots of RRR Penelope Natural Crocheted Lace to the bottom of my tea pot and just below the strand of pearls. All die cutz are from The Scrapping Cottage and are the 
Tea Time CottageCutz release and listed here-

I used a ton of flowers on the front and they are all wild orchid and 1 hand made rose, and a few buttons. I also used some pearl strands.
I wanted to show the tags that fit in the front pocket.
On this next page I used more Seam BindingSilky Crush Champagne Ribbon up the side where the Mini Tea Cakes are. I also used more Satin Ribbon for my bows and around the top of the plastic holder for the Mini Album. The bow on the photo mat is Satin as well from RRR :)

 I used more Really Reasonable Ribbon Seam Binding,Satin, and Penelope Crocheted Lace.

For my Strawberry Page, I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's Red Polka Dot in 2 different sizes. I also used Red Velvet Ribbon, and Red Double Ruffled Plaid Trim for the mini ruffled flower, and along the bottom of my tea pot I used the Sheer Box Pleated Trim in Red. All pearls are also from RRR.

CottageCutz Dies


for the Blue Flower page I used RRR Blue Seam Binding and Satin with Scallop Edge Ivory I used the Scallop Ivory ribbon along the sides of the pocket, and then added pearls through the center of them both. for the seam binding i used it ruched up to make little flowers and such for this page.

Tea Time Layout to be FRAMED!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday to you all!! Today I'm sharing a Layout designed for CottageCutz using the DARLING "Tea Time" Release!!!
This entire page was put together using my NEW Helmar Glue supply and omgosh I LOVE the 450 Quick Dry, its AWESOME!!!! Ok i'm also LOVING this Tea Time Release using the CottageCutz! They are all my favorite!!!

My Layout will be framed and hung on the wall! I need to go buy a frame for this, and I think im going to start framing all my pages to put up in the hall on the 4th floor in my home. 

CottageCutz Used:
CottageCutzPennants /plain

450 Quick Dry
Liquid Scrap dots

Design Paper is DCWV

So on my layout I started with DCWV Lace and Linen Paper stack. Next I glued all pieces together using Helmar's 450 Quick Dry glue(LOVE THIS STUFF)

I added lace with the same glue listed above, and just ruffled it as I went along, it dry's super fast so no need to worry about it falling off like other glues :)

The pictures of my daughters were taken when we lived in california back in 2001 seems like just yesterday, but nope that was awhile ago....heheheheh

On the Tall Tea Pot I used a spray for the steam!!!LOL I thought it would be super cute!!

I just did a little bit of writing on this page. I really just wanted to do up a really pretty piece of art to hang!

Bella Belle was our Chow Chow who passed away in 2006 we miss her sooo much! She LOVE the kids!!!

Close up of the Tea Cakes, these are super fun to make and I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots on them.

I hope you enjoyed my Layout piece for today using the Beautiful CottageCutz Tea Time Release!!!

Hope you will stop by to see my DT sisters projects weekly!!! Hugs!

Z-Fold Video/ & Video on Ribbon Rosette Flowers

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all! Cheryl here with my Shabby Chic "Happy Birthday" Z fold card for Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I had a few crafters ask how I made my Z fold card , so I decided to do a video on it, you can view it below :) Hope you enjoy and cant wait to see your Z-Fold Card!!!

Here are the written measurements I used
Card Base
1- 12 x 6 piece of card stock(base of card)
2 6 x 6 pieces of card stock (for base of card)
Card Layers
3- 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 pieces of colored card stock(for layering)
3- 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 pieces of design paper
1 5 x 5 piece of card stock(for smaller front piece) as shown in video
1- 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of design paper
Hidden message pull tab 
5 x 5 1/4 in colored card stock
4 1/2 x 4 3/4 for white to layer on card stock for pull tab hidden message, you can cut a piece the same size for the back as well, to have more room for writing.
2- 6 x 6 pieces of card stock (Base of card)

For my card I used lots of Pink Satin Really Reasonable Ribbon(MY FAV). I also used the pink and white satin with polka dots for the one handmade flower on the front of my card and the inside of my card. I used 3 different widths of Pink Satin and they can be found here.

I love the fold of this card, it gives plenty of room for stamping, and writing. I did make the pocket for the pull card(secret writing), however I didnt make my pull card for this one yet. I did a lot of distressing on the CottageCutz Frames I used. I LOVE these new frame dies, they are sweet.

The Ribbon Flower Rosette was handmade using Really Reasonable Ribbon's Satin and Scor-Tape I will post my video below

I used the spooled Satin from RRR,however you can buy the ribbon in yardsinstead :)

Ribbon Rosette Flowers Video, super easy to make!
Really Reasonable Ribbon Satin 5/8" inch
Scor-Tape 1/2"
2 circle punches 1" or a little over 
and 3/4"
Bling, or a button, or brad for center

I will have to redo my video for the z-fold, I didnt realize that you cant upload on here that long of a video, so I will have to do a 2 part one :)
Card Open. I also used all unity stamps on my card, Buttons,flowers, and handmade roses. I wanted to run the ribbon through the tea time doily and loved using the 1/4" satin for this. I'm entering my card for the 1st time in Unity's Color challenge here/Pink Green andoff white

Thank you all for looking and have a lovely day!! Hope you enjoyed my video on the Ribbon Flower Rosette's :)
Hugs to all,
Cheryl Walker
