The Little Things

{judy} We have had two months of absolutely beautiful fall temperatures and colors. I hope it lasts through Thanksgiving!
My trims and embelllishment are from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store. I chose 1/4" Turquoise Twill ( all Solid Twill colors are 50% off through October 31!) for the middle of my card and top of my tag. I wrapped the twill around the middle panel, secured with 1/4" Scor-Tape, and stapled the tag top with a cute matching blue staple. In the bottom right corner is a Vintage Glass Cabachon. Take a look at this collection! I love all of the different patterns!

There are many new embellishments in the RRR Store that you may not have seen yet! They are wonderful additions to your cardmaking!
Stamps and dies by Reverse Confetti. 
I love how this turned out! Thanks for taking a peek!

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Hello Ribbon Lovers!  Have you started working on your Christmas cards yet?  I got totally inspired to get mine going when I received the Traditional Christmas Mix in this month's Ribbon Club Assortment. To my absolute delight, these ribbons are the perfect playmates for Graphic 45's Saint Nicholas collection.

Just look at how yummy this Bold Red Check Plaid ribbon is with these pretty papers!  

My Zutter Bow it All Tool is my extra set of hands whenever I need to tie a big poufy bow.  This one is topped with Natural Jute String and a pretty floral pick.

Inside, I created a little treat pocket that's just the right size for a mini chocolate or two.

I'm curious...when do you start making your Christmas cards?  I'm usually a last minute kind of gal, but I'm trying to do better this year.  I'll keep you posted on how that goes!  

Thanks for stopping by!

A Merry Christmas Hello!

Hello there RRR fans!  Cherry here to share a project.  I have had plenty of time to create lately.  The weather has been horrific.  So inside I stay.  One of my favorite things to create are little plaques, signs...anything I can alter.  This one has oodles of cuteness.
I used acrylic rhinestones and bead berry sprays in red to adorn my layered goodies. 

Just love all that sugary goodness.   Don't you?

  To hang my plaque I wound shimmer satin in poppy red through the plaque and made my bows.
I just love this.....I am sure because of the red and gingham!  Hope you enjoy, Cherry

Heart Shaped Candy Tins

 Hello everyone,
Today's Heart shaped candy tins were made for a Doll Conference & for Really Reasonable Ribbon. I made these last month to take to Montana to give to the peeps at our table, and used all the Beautiful supplies from Really Reasonable Ribbon. LOVE all the new embellishments, and you can find those here. I also used Sweetheart Blossoms, and Ribbons :)

I made 8 Pink tins -
using the Delicate Stitched Pearl Pink Satin Ribbon I also used some tulle, and then 3 different colors of Seam binding. All can be found here at RRR . I also used some of the sweetheart Blossoms and those can be found here. I also used some of Really Reasonable Ribbons NEW Embellishments- Flower Shaped Flatback Pearls , 11mm Pearl Daisy Flower Beads , Resin Flowers with Rhinestones. . I also used some of the new Leaves :)

Blue Tin-
I used the same flowers, and embellishments as listed above, the only difference is, I used blue and white. Now for the Ribbon I chose the Shimmer Satin in Blue Topaz, for my bow.

I really had so much fun making these, and they are all a little different in layout. The Heart shaped tins I have had for years! I picked up a bunch of these at Big Lots and knew one day they would come in handy!

Thank you for looking an have a lovely day!
hugs to all,

Happy Birthday

Hi friends.  Today I have a fun birthday card created in seasonal colors featuring Copper Glitz Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This pretty Glitz Ribbon comes in 11 great colors.  It's a lovely lightweight shimmery ribbon and it is wonderful for bow making.
I also played around with some machine and hand stitching on this card.  I really like the look.
My bow is a simple double loop bow created on my Bow-it-All V3.0.

For a video tutorial on how to create this double-loop bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  For more information on the other supplies used on my card, please visit my Make Time to Craft Blog.

Inspired Bird Mixed Media Greeting Card

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a greeting card I made with loads of mixed media supplies and a digital image from my shop. The bird in the images was the inspiration for the card. The bright feathers and flowers steered me towards choosing lighter colors with not too much contrast so as not to be too busy. Instead I'm using texture to create detail.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies~ Robin's Egg Satin w/Center Stitch, Spiral Stamens, Ivory Burlap String.
Okay that's all for me. Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G
