Balloon Bouquet

Hello everyone!
Today's card is another super fast and easy card I made for the Scrapping Cottage using the darling CottageCutz Balloon Bouquet! This is one of the many DARLING CottageCutz Dies from the "Birthday" Release!

Card Measures 2 1/2" x 6"
Super fast and easy to make! I cut the card stock at 5" x 6 then scored on the 5" side at the 2 1/2" mark. I rounded the corners once scored and folded using a 1/2" corner rounder. Next I cut the card stock at 2 1/4" x 5 3/4" and rounded the one side. I did distress the card stock using distress ink and a duster. 
Next I cut the CottageCutz Balloon Bouquet with blue card stock, and then added glitter glue to the balloons. set aside to dry, unless you do embossing powder and heat dry, that would be faster.
I then added my ribbon and bow, and lastly the pearl half backs to the bottom.

CottageCutz Die Used:

Ribbon used is from Really Reasonable Ribbon and is a Gingham print!

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

Shabby Chic Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone, and Happy Sunday to all!\

So first I did cut out the CottageCutz Gift Card Holder using some pretty design paper, and then distressed it. Next I added some lace, and then a piece of a white doily, that I distressed. Next I cut out the Birthday Wishes Doily in pink, and distressed it as well. I only used a part of it, as I wanted it as the background for the flap of my gift Card Holder. The CottageCutz Fancy Present, and Tag Topper are both distressed as well, and then I added some Viva Pearl dots to both of them.

Here is a photo of the inside.
Please click on the photo's to take you directly to each CottageCutz die.
 The little bows, and big bow is made with RRR Seam Binding. Love the look of seam binding, and its very shabby chic! I added a button, and some pearls to the bows.
I hope you enjoyed my post for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!

Christmas Joy/Page 2 of Mini Album

Hello everyone, Cheryl here with Page 2 of a Christmas Mini I'm currently working on for a Christmas Gift.
On this page I used some more of the Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon that is in this months Ribbon Kit, LOVE all the Christmas ribbons and lace in this months kit.

I used ribbon for the tag pulls, and also made bows for all the tags. There are 2 tags to the left, that pull out for photo's, and 1 tag at the bottom for more photo's, all have bows, and ribbon pulls on them.

Next I added some of the beautiful lace to the left bottom corner, and then the right upper corner. In the photo below, you will see some of the green delicate stitched satin, used as tag pulls on both of the tags on the inside.

I love how this 2nd page turned out for my mini, its been a long time since I've made a Christmas Mini, so I'm super excited to be working on this one.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a super wonderful day!

So for my card today I received this BEAUTIFUL Heartfelt Creations Paper Stack from Heartfelt Creations to use today, and absolutely LOVE their design paper, its absolutely Gorgeous! To view all their design paper stacks please click HERE!

I chose the Christmas design out of this stack, as I thought it would go perfect with their Ornament stamp. I stamp the stamp in Black Memento Ink, and then cut it out using their matching die cut. Next I colored it with 2 different shades of copic markers, and then used HC White Gala Glitz. The Merry Christmas Stamp came from another one of their past releases and is also stamped in Memento black ink. The branches are a MS punch, and I did punch out some of the same dp to use as part of a Christmas Tree Branch. 
The Pink Beautiful Ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon as is the Delicate Stitch Pearl Pink Satin Ribbon. I Absolutely LOVE this ribbon, and should have bought many rolls of it. Its super easy to use for Bows, and even Lil' tiny bows as well. I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons Lace called "Melissa" to run down the left side of my card. The buttons, and Hemp are also from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I love using the Hemp to make the buttons look like they are sewn on. Lastly I added my Favorite RRR flower, the Sweetheart Blossoms, I should own stock in these babies........LOL I LOVE them!!! I seem to use them on everything, and they are the perfect size.

I hope you have enjoyed our Hop so far today as there is a LOT of inspiration using the Beautiful October 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 Mini Album Page for a Christmas Album that I am currently working on for a Christmas gift.

For my Page I chose to use the Red, Green and Plaid print ribbon from this months RRR Ribbon Kit! Love how Bonnie puts these together with all the right ribbons and trims to match.

I used the Ribbons on the tag pull outs, and a little piece for the small tag on the front. For the inside 

I again used all 3 coordinating Ribbons as banners, and then glued a sticker sentiment tag on top of them.
There is plenty of room on this 1 page to hold at least 8 photo's.... Love when each page can hold a lot of photo's and not just one :)

Haunted House Treat Bag/Video

Hello Everyone, and Happy Monday to all!
Today I have a Halloween Treat Bag I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the Beautiful Ribbons from last months Ribbon Club assortment. I also used the beautiful Sweetheart Blossoms, Leaf Trim, and some lace to complete my bag.

I started with my Treat bag, then cut some spellbinders frames for the background, using American Crafts dp. Next I layered the black and orange ribbon and ran in from the left corner to the bottom right corner, alternating the colors. Then I used foam squares to pop the frames off the bag, and then added my CottageCutz Haunted House and Spooky Sign. Once that was done, I added the Leaf Trim in Black and Orange, and then used Really Reasonable Ribbons Sweetheart Blossoms in Orange and White. I did dust them both, using orange on the orange flowers, and black on the white. Next I went over them with some American Crafts liquid glitter glue. Love the look of them in person. To put the lace and ribbon on the bag I used Scor-tape in 1/4" to hold my lace and ribbons.

I wanted to share how I store some of my Really Reasonable Ribbon Sweetheart Blossom flowers for easy grabbing. So here is a short video showing how :)

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed today's post!
