Shabby Chic Album Cover & Video

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share the cover of my Shabby Chic Floral Delight Album, and I also have a video of the entire album to share as well. My album was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon & The Scrapping Cottage, using tons of Really Reasonable Ribbon Seam Binding, and flowers throughout my entire album. I also used lots of CottageCutz dies, from The Scrapping Cottage.

I absolutely LOVE how this album turned out. My next album will be a little different, I'm thinking I need to create more spots for photo's, as I didn't have enough room in this one for all photo's from 2 trips.

On the cover I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Seam Binding(Moss Green, Rose Petal),Sweetheart Blossoms, & Trellis Roses. I also used Scor-Tape throughout this entire album.

I did add wedding stems, flourishes, Butterflies, Buttons, Vintage Trim, Rosette Trim, Photo wood frame, and CottageCutz die cuts.

I'm getting ready to start my next big album, and cant wait to share that with you all! Hope you like my video I've posted below, as it shows all details of each page.

Sweeet Ride A Pony Baby Card

Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!!! Today I wanted to share a Sweet Baby card  I made. My card was designed for Really Reasonable Ribbon & The Scrapping Cottage, using the beautiful Ribbons, Netting, and Hemp from RRR, and then Beautiful CottageCutz Baby Dies from The Scrapping Cottage.

I LOVE the Delicate Stitched Pink Satin Ribbon that Bonnie carries at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store. Its beautiful in person, and pictures don't seem to show all the beauty. I Criss Crossed the ribbon for a different look. Then used the white Tulle and ran it across the center over the Ribbon, and tied it in a bow. Next I added a big pink bow using the same Delicate Stitched pink Satin.

My buttons are also from the Really Reasonable Ribbon store, and I used the Hemp in PINK for a sewn look. Love using the hemp Bonnie carries, its perfect for the buttons.

The Baby Dies I used are CottageCutz dies, and are from the New Baby Release (The Scrapping Cottage). I used the CottageCutz "It's a Girl Balloon" Die, and Dusted it and then colored the bow, and strings with copics. Next I decided to use the DARLING CottageCutz "Ride A Pony" Die. On this one, I colored all the pieces using the Copic Markers. Then added some pearls in white.

The Design Paper is from American Crafts and one is the Pebbles collection.

I enjoyed creating my card for today! It was super easy!!!

Thank you for stopping by, and for all your lovely comments! Hope you have a super AWESOME Day!!

For my card today, it measures 6 x 6 and I used American Crafts Design Paper for the layers. The kitty is a stamp I have had for years, and I just LOVE this little guy! For the Ribbon I used Really Reasonable Ribbons, Gingham Print in pink, and then used the White Noelle lace. I also used the leaves,stems, and roses from Really Reasonable Ribbon as well.

Really Reasonable Ribbons August Hop

Hello everyone and Welcome to 
♥♥♥Really Reasonable Ribbon's♥♥♥
August 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 August 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 Treat Box using a Recycled Ribbon Box.

For my box I chose to use the Brown Diamond Satin Ribbon and the lace from this months RRR assortment. I got these boxes from my work, we were going to throw them away, and I just couldn't throw them out, so I took home a bunch, and tried to get other crafters at work to take a bunch too. I thought they would be perfect as treat boxes, gift boxes, or perfect for holding a gift card wrapped inside.
I ran the lace around the top and bottom of the design paper. Next I used the same lace for my rosette. The brown Diamond Satin was used for a small box that sits behind the rosette. I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons Buttons,Seam Binding, and Sweetheart Blossoms to create my Rosette. I attached the paper using Scor-Tape, and also attached the lace, and rosette using Scor-tape as well. Super easy and fun box to make. My ticket is from SU! and the stamp used is one I had from a long time ago.
Buttons from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and score -tape used is also from RRR.

Your NEXT stop on the Really Reasonable Ribbon HOP is the Kathy's Blog. Thank you so much for joining us this month, and hope you enjoyed all the inspiration from the DT so far!
Hugs to all,

Shabby Chic "Cherish Time" page

Hello everyone! 
Today is the last page I am showing for the Shabby Chic Floral Delight Album I have created. I will be back again with the front cover and Video showing all the details of the inside.

I am sorry I didn't clean up the hot glue strands for this photo, but will have it ready for the video. I hate when I don't do that before taking all photo's...hehehehehe

On this page I used more of the American Crafts Thicker Pennants, and lots of Really Reasonable Ribbons Seam Binding. I guess you can say I LOVE the seam Binding that Bonnie Carries as I use a ton of it. On this page I also added some pearl brads that I bought at the American Crafts Warehouse Sale. I LOVE using these too.

The ticket stamp I used on this page is a SU! one, and I ended up adding our Anniversary date to it.

CottageCutz dies used on this page are the Filigree Butterfly Trio, and the Vintage Clock. I knew the CottageCutz Clock die would be a perfect fit for this page, and its the 1st time I used it since I received it. LOVE the look of it!

The Design Paper is from American Crafts and is the Pebbles Line, its the Baby line, but love the design of it and I thought it would be perfect for a shabby chic look.

I will be back to share my Cover of this Album & a Video showing all hidden pockets and other places to add photo's in here. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
Hugs to all!

Shabby Chic Floral Delight "24 Years" page

Hello, Friends!
Today I have yet another Shabby Chic page to share. This one is "24 Years"  hubby & I had our 24th Anniversary this year on June 24th, so I decided to make this page for our photo. 

Again on this page I used Really Reasonable Ribbons seam binding, and Sweetheart Blossoms to create the floral piece at the top and along the side. I also used the same in the bottom right hand corner, along with a CottageCutz Garden Delight butterfly.

The Happiness Free stamp is another Unity stamp I love using, as I love the ticket stamps, they are perfect for mini albums. The heart is from one of the flourish packs, and thought it was perfect for this page. For my banners I used the American Crafts Thicker Pennants, and ran seam binding through both of the banners.

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

CottageCutz Sweet Baby Lamb

Hello everyone, and Happy Wednesday to you all ! 
When I saw this sweet little lamb I thought how DARLING she is! I absolutely LOVE this CottageCutz die!!! 

So for the Baby Lamb, I used antique Linen to dust her in. Then I used copics in pink to color her bow,ears, noes,and hooves. Her eyes are done with the Viva Pearl Pen, and I had to add a sweet pink flower to her hair :)

The Ribbons I used are Really Reasonable Ribbons Pink Gingham, and Pink Satin. I LOVE the look of them both together. As for my buttons, normally I'm lazy and don't add the hemp, however on this card I just had to take the extra time and add it. I do love how it makes them look sewn on. The buttons are also from Really Reasonable Ribbon, as well as the Hemp I used. The little flowers can be found here at RRR, they are the open roses, 10mm

Baby Girl is cut out with the CottageCutz Expressions, using "Baby" & "Girl" dies.

 I used the Baby Design paper again, but this time its the girl colors. I also added some RRR Buttons, and hemp to make them look sewn on. Lastly I added some sewing, and a big Pink & Gingham Bow!
Thank you for stopping by and have a super awesome day!
Hugs to all,

Shabby Chic Floral Delight Topiary Gate-fold page

 Floral Delight Topiary Gate-fold page
Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday to all!
Yes I'm back again, this time with a gate-fold page for my Shabby Chic Floral Delight Mini Album. 

On this page I made a gate-fold to hold a large photo inside and maybe some smaller ones, and room for writing. I used the CottageCutz "Topiary & Pot" die, and colored it with copics. I thought putting one on each side would look nice, and then ran the Really Reasonable Ribbon seam binding and flowers down the center. These are the Beautiful Sweetheart Blossoms that can be found at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. Again the ruched flowers are handmade by me,using RRR seam binding!

Next I cut some of the flourishes up and used them on each side as well. You can see them at the top of the page below.

The CottageCutz Butterfly, off to the right top hand corner is called "Garden Delight Butterflies" and can be found at the Scrapping Cottage. Its a thin metal die, Love using butterflies in my albums, they are absolutely beautiful, and The Scrapping Cottage has many to choose from. I also added a flower to the center of it.

Thank you for looking and have a super wonderful day!
Hugs to all,

Shabby Chic Floral Delight "Best Friends" page

As promised, I'm back with another page from my Shabby Chic Floral Delight Mini Album! I absolutely LOVE the way this album turned out, and cant wait to share the Video with you all!!

Again for this page I used handmade flowers,Really Reasonable Ribbons Sweetheart Blossoms, and CottageCutz ivy Die. I also had to use more of those beautiful Thicker pennants, as I just love them! I hope I can get more of these!!

I layered pieces of the CottageCutz Oval Doily & Frame die, just cutting pieces of the doily part, and placing it beneath the scalloped frame(for photo). I guess you could say I left this page pretty simple, as I was rushed and really should have added some kind of hidden pocket, I will have to do that on my next album.

The ticket stamp is a Unity stamp, and I sure do love these ticket stamps, wish I could get a bunch of these with different sentiments on them. I only have 2 sets from unity, and 1 from SU! If any of you know of a stamp company that sells these in different wording please let me know, I would so appreciate it!

Thank you for looking and hope you will come back and see more of my Shabby Chic Floral Delight pages this week!
Hugs to all,

All my pages in this album coordinate, they all have the ruched up greenery using Really Reasonable Ribbons Seam Binding, and then my little handmade flowers, also using RRR Seam Binding.

The Butterfly is a CottageCutz Die, its the Filigree Butterfly Trio , I colored it with copics and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

Shabby Chic "LOVE" Page/Floral Delight Album

Hello everyone, and Happy Saturday to all! Today I wanted to  share the "LOVE" page from my Shabby Chic Floral Delight Album that I've created.

On this page I used the Beautiful Banner Thickers that I bought at American Crafts. I LOVE these, and love that you can run Seam Binding, Ribbon, or even Jute through them to create banners for your projects. I wish they had every color!!

For the page I used different layers of design paper also from American Crafts, I believe its from the Baby Girl paper "Pebbles" line,

The pocket envelope is covered with vintage lace, and then I used the Darling CottageCutz Dies for the Birdcage, Ivy Leaves, and the oval, they can both be found here.

Flowers- I used Really Reasonable Ribbons "Sweetheart Blossoms" & the others are handmade by me using Really Reasonable Ribbons Seam Binding. I also used lots of scor-Tape to add my pocket and layers.

Lastly I added a gem floral piece to my page.
Thank you for looking!! Have a super wonderful weekend!
Hugs to all
