Butterfly Thank you

Hello everyone, and Happy Monday to you all!

Today I'm sharing a card I designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Beautiful Satin Ribbon that Bonnie carries at the RRR Store. LOVE working with this ribbon as its super easy to create beautiful fast bows. To find my ribbon I used today and other beautiful colors, please visit this section of the RRR Store :) I used the Double Faced Satin in brown, and that can be found here.

Next I sewed 3 panels for my card using American Crafts dp, and card stock. I absolutely LOVE sewing on my cards, I feel it gives it that little added touch, kinda like an embellishment. 
For the butterfly and greenery I used The Scrapping Cottage /CottageCutz Dies. On my CottageCutz Garden delight butterfly I dusted the edges in brown, and then colored the center with copics, lastly I added some glitter to the edges of the wings. My stamped ticket is SU! and the sentiment as well. 

I hope you enjoyed my post today, and have a super awesome week!!
Hugs to all,

On my card I used the DARLING CottageCutz "Springtime Friends" die, and cut all pieces in white, then colored with copics. LOVE these little friends as they are super CUTE!!!

Next I cut the tree in white as well, then colored all the flowers,butterflies, and bird with copics as well. I next added some pearls to the centers of all the flowers in tree. Love how this one turned out. The CottageCutz Sweetheart border is from the Sweet Love Release and I LOVE this border die, its perfect for all my cards and projects!

Beary Cute LO

Hello Friends, today I have another Layout to share of my Son. This one is Called "Beary Cute" he was sooo darling when he was little...heheheehe and he still is. For this LO I used CottageCutz "Mr. Snuggles die for the Bears on my layout.

CottageCutz Mr. Snuggles is from the Winter Release from The Scrapping Cottage, and was cut using white card stock, and then dusted with distressed ink. I added pink cheeks and some white dots with a gel pen. Next I did his eyes with black Viva Pearl Pen.

The design Paper is another I bought at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale, its the Pebbles line. LOVE this!! Also used some stickers I bought there as well. Lastly I added some sewing to complete the page.

This page was pretty simple to make, as there is just the photo's matted and then I used the punches to punch out all the circles for the "beary cute". For the little banners by the bear at the bottom, I cut those and then added stickers to them, super easy!!!

Thank you for looking and hope you have a wonderful day!

Little One Layout

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday to all! Cheryl here today to share a LO I did for my son's Album that I have been working on. I used the beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbons from this months ribbon Club Assortment.

This months Ribbon Club worked perfect for this Layout I did. I love Blue's and Brown together, and perfect for a little one. All three ribbons and Lace came from February's Ribbon Club found at Really Reasonable Ribbon here! 

My son will be 21 in April, and I have been trying to get some of his pages done for just his album, this will be another to add to the album for him.  The title of my page came from the design paper I used, it says little one under the little hedgehog at the top of the page. Thought it would be perfect for this layout. The little CottageCutz hedgehogs are dies I used to cut out the ones at the bottom of my page. They were colored with copic's and glued on. I also glued on my ribbon, stars, and even the Thicker's to be sure that nothing falls off.

I really enjoyed making this page, and sharing it today. Hope you all have a super wonderful day!

Thank you for looking!

Be Mine /Hedgehogs

Hello everyone, hope you all are having a super awesome week so far! Today's card is "Be Mine" CottageCutz Hedgehogs. LOVE LOVE LOVE these lil' sweeties, they are 1 of my Many CottageCutz Favorites :)

This card is a pretty simple and fast card to make. As most of my CottageCutz pieces were already cut and ready to go for me. So all I did was cut a 5 x 5 card base, and then some design paper for the background piece. Glued them all down and was done! Super fast and easy card!

The Be Mine is also from The Scrapping Cottage, its called CottageImpressions and they are retired and on SALE, but you can pick them up here for 3.00 for the set of stamps.

I added some Brown Seam Binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and the hearts are button hearts from American Crafts sale.

I have been trying to use up some of the Design Paper and goodies I bought from the American Crafts Warehouse sale. I bought soooo much stuff but at a super AWESOME deal, I just couldnt pass up! :) At least I have been using it since I have purchased it all :) so that is good

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and thank you for stopping by!

Cheers To You Treat Bag

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all! Today I'm sharing a Treat Bag made for the Scrapping Cottage using the darling CottageCutz Dies. I love making treat bags, as they are super fun to decorate using the CottageCutz Dies! Today I used the CottageCutz Sweetheart Tiered Cake,Sweet Cupcake Border, Tea Time Doily,Sweet Love Doily, and Love Tags,all CottageCutz Dies.

For my Tiered Cake, I used white card stock to cut out all the pieces, and then colored them with Copics. I left the cake stand white and used some really pretty glitter to glitz it up a bit. I also did the same for the leaves on the Strawberry. My Sweet Cupcake Border ,Sweet Love Doily, and Tea Time Doily were both cut in white as well. For the Love tag, I cut it in pink, and then distressed it with pink distressed ink.

Hello everyone, today I am sharing my Ribbon Station with you all. Over at Really Reasonable Ribbon, we (the Design Team) are sharing how we store our ribbon :) Super FUN!!!! To see all of last weeks Ribbon Storage Idea's please visit the 

This top photo is where I hang Really Reasonable Ribbon when its package is open. Lately I have been picking Rolls of ribbon, and a few packages.

For this photo above, I have jars of the ribbon, once its open I will hang it on the curtain rod. It makes it easy for me to find.

Here is just a photo of the tops of the jars off. So you can see my RRRibbon :)

Here in this photo you can see the jars, and some of my ribbon spools from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

another photo to see more rolls. I just keep them stacked, it makes it easy for me to see, so I will use what is out. I mostly pick from the rod, and these spools that I can see.

More spools, and then some heart shaped baskets that have the Really Reasonable Ribbon flowers in them. I also keep some of the RRR monthly club kits in another heart shaped box, you can see it up on the hat boxes to the bottom right of this photo.

Close up of my mess.....LOL 

Here is where I keep some of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Monthly kits. Otherwise some of the bunches go in jars, or the drawers below.
