Now on to my card for today. I love seeing all white wedding cards as they always look so beautiful. So today I layered with all whites. The design paper is kinda of a grey, but has white. Then I used the Beautiful NEW CottageCutz Bride & Groom Die. I just covered them in white glitter. Next I used the CottageCutz Trellis w/Vines. This was cut in white and then the greenery and flowers colored with copics. I used the CottageCutz Fancy Butterfly Vine as a corner piece for the lower left hand corner of my card. I just added some white pearls to it. For the background layer I used the CottageCutz Fancy Floral Background in white. The Bride & Groom words are from the CottageCutz Expressions line.

Shabby Chic Engagement

Hello everyone, Today I wanted to share a Shabby Chic Engagement Card I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon & The Scrapping Cottage.

This card is a Clean & Simple card for me, as I always have tons of layers on all my cards. This one is just a White Wedding Invite /With embossed pink Roses on it. It was 8 1/2 tall, and I decided to fold it in half to create a card base. I bought these at the American Crafts Warehouse sale for 1.00 a box. 

Next I added Really Reasonable Ribbons Lace along the bottom, this lace came out of one of the Ribbon of the Month Kits, its called Carolina White Lace. I love the look it gives to my card. Next I used the Baby Pink Seam Binding, and Ruched it up to create a Trim look above the lace.

For my Rose Bouquet I used CottageCutz Wedding Bouquet ,and Boutonniere dies from The Scrapping Cottage. For the Rose Bouquet I colored it in green and pink copic markers, and then added some glitter to parts of it. Next I added pearls, and then the Boutonniere that was also colored with copic markers. Engagement was cut out using CottageCutz Expressions die, and I ended up using black embossing powder to give it the look it has.

My Bow was made using the Baby Pink Seam Binding again, and then a little 10mm Baby Pink Open Rose both from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Super EASY and FAST card to make! 

I hope you enjoyed today's Post, as I have enjoyed making this to share today!
Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely Day!

Shabby Chic Floral Delight Page 2

Happy Monday to everyone!
 Today's Project is for  Really Reasonable Ribbon , and is another page for my chipboard mini I'm working on. On this page here I used lots of Really Reasonable Ribbon Seam Binding and Sweetheart Blossoms, all can be found at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.

For the photo above, I used the Moss Green Seam Binding and ruched it up. I also used the baby pink, and (Rose Petal) on top I added a CottageCutz Garden Delight Butterfly

For the Floral sprays, and steams, I show how I created these using Really Reasonable Ribbons Seam Binding in Moss Green and Score Tape 5/8". I also added some Sweetheart Blossoms throughout this page, and handmade flowers using seam binding.

The Photo Matt is done with Spellbinders. I used behind the Photo Matt at the top a CottageCutz Tea Time Doily, and for the bottom corner I used the CottageCutz Bella Spring Corner
The lace I used is vintage and is from my stash.

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

Shabby Chic /Floral Page 1

Hello everyone, Super excited to share with you all Page 1 of my Shabby Chic Chipboard Album Iv'e been working on. This page here was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon's "Anything But a Card" Challenge.

I absolutely LOVE using all the beautiful Seam Bindings that Bonnie carries at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.  There is a TON of Colors to choose from, and I have been trying to collect them all.....hehehehehehe 
There are so many uses for Seam Binding. Here I show that you can create flowers, Leaves, and vines. Its so easy to do!! On this page I kept it pretty simple with the layout, as I just added some Vintage Lace from my stash, and then added a photo mat. The little Sweetheart Blossoms are another Favorite of mine from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store, they are perfect for adding to our mini albums,Cards,layouts, and projects! The pearls are from my stash, and love using these flourishes on mini's.

The Wedding Pearls were covered with Seam Binding and I will have a video out tomorrow showing how easy it is to do. In these photo's its kinda hard to see, but tomorrow I will have another page to share as well. Cant wait!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day & Thank you for stopping by!
Hugs to all,

Hope you will Join us for this months Challenge!!

Really Reasonable Ribbon June Hop

Hello everyone and Welcome to 
♥♥♥Really Reasonable Ribbon's♥♥♥
June Blog Hop

You should have arrived from Linsey's Blog If not you will want to start out at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog so that you wont miss anything.

I hope you have enjoyed our Hop so far today as there is a LOT of inspiration using the Beautiful June  Ribbon Kit from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I just LOVE all the ribbons in this months assortment! Of course I LOVE every month as they are all so Beautiful!!! For this month I decided to make a Birthday Card, its always nice to have these sitting around to give. 

All the Beautiful Ribbons & Lace came from this months Ribbon Assortment. LOVE them all!!! The little Ladybug Ribbon was my inspiration for this card and its design. I LOVE ladybugs, they are so cute :)

I used the lace, Red Ribbon, Grey Ribbon, and Ladybug Ribbon to create layers on my card. Next for the BIG BOW I used the White, Grey, and Ladybug to create 3 bows, and then glued them all together. Lastly adding a flower to the center. The Design Paper for my card is double sided and is from American Crafts Warehouse Sale. I love using the Gingham and Dots together. I used both sides of it. The ovals are CottageCutz dies, Oval Doily and Frame is the large one, and the smaller one is CottageCutz Spring Label.  I just dusted them to distress the edges of both with Red and then black. Next I used the CottageCutz Mini Ladybug to add with the sentiment.

CottageCutz Wedding Birds/Easel Card

Hello everyone, Today I'm sharing another  Easel Wedding Card made for The Scrapping Cottage using the darling new CottageCutz Wedding Birds die.

My card measures 6 x 6, and for the front I used the darling New CottageCutz Wedding Birds. I cut them out in white card stock, then dusted the female in Antique Linen, and added some glitter to her veil. Next for the male I colored him with black copic marker. Super easy!!!!

The design paper I used is Project Life dp. I also used the beautiful CottageCutz Fancy Floral Corner #1 die for layering behind 1 of the layers. I love how you can get different looks from 1 CottageCutz die.
Ribbon, Flowers and Buttons are all from Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. You can find them HERE!

These are the CottageCutz dies I used for my card today! All photo's below are linked to the Scrapping Cottage Store for easy finding.

For the inside of my card I used the CottageCutz Spring Label die. I cut the oval in white, and then one set of the floral pieces in cream. The others were colored black.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Elegant Swans Card

Hello everyone, and Happy Friday to all!
I am absolutely Loving this new CottageCutz Wedding Release, so for today's card I just had to share another Wedding card I made using the beautiful CottageCutz Swans, and Really Reasonable Ribbon's Seam binding.

I will start with the Design Paper I used, its from DCWV and I purchased it at the warehouse sale back in 2012, it was the 1.00 sale they had, AWESOME SALE!!! I distressed all layers on this card.

Next I cut the CottageCutz Swans in white card stock, and distressed them as well. I did add some American Crafts Glitter to them. LOVE using these glitters I bought at the warehouse sale American Crafts had.

I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Seam Binding, and there is a little story behind this. As I left one of my Ink pads open for several days, and low and behold, guess what was laying on the ink pad???? YEPPERS it was my Seam binding it was grey, and the ink made it kinda black, so I used it up on this card...hehehee no wasting ribbons in this house :) I also used some of the tan seam binding and both are from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. There are sooo many colors I want them all!!!! 

The flowers are the Sweetheart Blossoms that I get from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store, and I have to say these have become my favorite flower to use. I LOVE them too!

Lastly I added some pearl wedding embellishment to my ribbon treatment.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs to all,
