Very Merry December Planner Spread & Ribbon Tassel

Hi friends! Linsey here today sharing my latest planner spread and ribbon tassel for this festive month of December! With all the hustle and bustle the holidays can bring, I like to keep my trusty planner close by. I'm counting down the days til' Christmas and they are going by fast! I hope you enjoy seeing my planner spread--May all your days be merry and bright!
I like to stuff lots of little die cuts and stickers into the side pockets so that I can easily access them when I want to mark something on the daily/weekly planner pages. I also like to add handmade tags and planner clips for an extra special touch. It's super easy to make planner clips with scraps of ribbon. Just loop a small piece through the top of any paper clip and voila! My favorite clip is this one on the white doily above. I used a piece of Victoria White Crochet Lace. For this month's holiday burlap tags, I added a piece of 1/8" Diagonal Stripe Red Ribbon on the smaller one and a piece each of Silver Glitz Ribbon and Christmas Presents on White Grosgrain Ribbon looped through the top of the large tag for a super festive look!
For my December ribbon tassel, I of course had to make it super festive and full of holiday cheer! Here it is in all its glory and also a list of all the scrumptious ribbons I used to create it...
Funky Christmas Trees On White Grosgrain Ribbon
Christmas Presents On White Grosgrain Ribbon
Glitz Ribbon Silver
1/8" Diagonal Stripe Ribbon Red
White 3/8" Ric Rac
Double-faced Satin Emerald Green
Checkerboard Satin Apple Green
5/8" Satin with Grosgrain Edge Poppy Red
Lyndsay White Crochet Lace
And that's all for me! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I really enjoy sharing my planner spreads and ribbon tassels with you! Wishing everyone a very happy and blessed holiday season! Happy crafting!

Have A Cup Of Cheer

Hello again, all my ribbon-loving and coffee-loving friends!  It's Karen Letchworth back again today and ready to share another sweet coffee-themed Christmas card that features lots of fabulous products from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Just look at what a few simple products from Really Reasonable Ribbon did for this simple card.  I attached two pieces of older patterned papers and a coffee sentiment card by using a fabulous Adhesive called Scor-Tape and I also machine stitched the edges.  Really Reasonable Ribbon did the rest.
At the bottom of my card, I added a width of 1/8" Red Diagonal Stripe Ribbon, and I used it again in my bow.  It's on top of a bow tied with Bay Leaf Seam Binding and a snippet of Red Center Stitch Burlap.  As you will also see, I tucked in a Red Orchid and lots of sweet Red Double Head StamensWhite Double Head Stamens and Aqua Double Head Stamens.  These adorable little accents have quickly become my new "fave" and they are super affordable (just $1.99 per 160 pieces) and they come in nine gorgeous colors.
At the top of my card, just to balance things a bit; I added a small cream button tied with a piece of Natural Burlap String.  Burlap String is another FABULOUS trim that can be used for so many things; and not only does it come in 15 gorgeous colors, but it also costs just $1.00 for TEN YARDS!  Yup!!  I use it all the time because it's so affordable and SO awesome.   There are LOTS of great products at Really Reasonable Ribbon, and we hope that you will stop by to check it out and treat yourself to something new.  Christmas is right around the corner, so it's the perfect time to check off the one person on your Christmas list who often gets forgotten.....yourself!
Really Reasonable Ribbon is always here to help you find the PERFECT trims and goodies for your next project.  We look forward to having you visit again real soon.

Blessings to you,
Karen

You Warm My Heart

Thanks for stopping by the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog today!  Today it's Karen Letchworth sharing another coffee-themed card with you.  This card (much like most all of the cards I create) was creating using some fabulous trims and goodies from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I started with some sweet patterned papers from Echo Park that I machine stitched together and inked on the edges, and I added half of a white doily.  Next, I ran a piece of Lipstick Red Seam Binding across my card and tied a bow with it and some Bay Leaf Seam Binding.  That's topped with two smaller bows tied with Cherry Baker's Twine and Teal Baker's Twine.  The bow is finally accented with a sweet 14mm White Flower Shaped Flatback Round Pearl from our Embellishments section.
I added a journalling sticker and stamped my sentiment on it.  I also added a small sticker at the bottom (to: with candy canes) and a cute little chipboard cocoa cup with marshmallows.  You can find lots of cute trims and little accents at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  It's a great time to work on that Christmas wish list!
There's lots of great inspiration here on the RRR Blog almost every day, so be sure to stop by often.
We always appreciate your visits,
Karen

Happy Holiday Card

It's easy to add that extra wow to your holiday cards using Really Reasonable Ribbon.  
I picked up the beautiful colors of the papers that I using the Danish Blue Seam Binding and Peppermint Bakers Twine.  Nothing says Christmas than the Peppermint Bakers Twine.
Next, I added the Juliet Natural Crochet Lace to the bottom.  It adds such softness to the card.  Then I added a little shimmer with some glitter glue.

 Wishing you a creative day, dear friends.

I'll Have a Shabby Chic Pink Christmas

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Are you still working on your Christmas cards?  I have been having fun playing with non-traditional ribbons and color palettes this year.  This shabby chic pink Woodland Christmas card adorned with Pearl Pink Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon is so pretty, you could leave it up all winter long. 


I love the soft sheen that satin ribbon adds to a card design!


Easel cards are one of my favorite fancy folds to make, because they can double as home decor.


This triple loop bow tied beautifully, thanks to my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool.  I use it literally every single time I create!

A little gift card/treat pocket, a little spot to write a personal greeting, and this one's ready for the mail! Now on to the next card!

Thanks for stopping by!
Cheerio,
kathy

Christmas Isn't Just a Day...

Hello Crafty friends and Happy Monday to you all!
Today's card was created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful satins, foam squares and embellishments.

Two of the ribbons used are from the Octobers Ribbon Club Assortment, and those ribbons are called Delicate Stitched Forest Green Ribbon , Gauze Print Poppy Red Satin , as I thought they went perfect with all the layers on my card. I also added a sweet rhinestone embellishment .

Each layer was put together using the  Scotch advanced tape runner refill. , and then popped up using Really Reasonable Ribbons Foam squares . I did add sewing to the 3 layers.

Sentiment Frame- was done using a die cut from JustRite, and the stamp is from The Project Bin, and I also added distressing using Club Scrap ink.

Top panel under the sentiment frame- I used a fancy Quadrafoil Square Doily die cut from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I had a lot of fun creating this card, hope you enjoy my post for today! thank you!
Have a nice day!

hugs to all,
Cheryl

Deck the Halls Christmas Greeting Card

Happy December Peeps! I'm sharing a card I created with the new Back to Basics December Ribbon Club Assortment.
I was so happy to see this collection as I have some really fabby plaids that I've been wanting to use and the black ribbon coordinates perfectly!
I think the black ribbon was the perfect choice to anchor the red plaid.
Did I mention I like plaid? I am all about the plaid!
These gorgeous flowers are from RRR too. I've created a nice arrangement full of blooms and die cut leaves and glittery accents.
The sentiment is layered over a festive holiday die cut that reminds me a bit of chalkboard : )
I balanced the larger arrangement with a smaller second combination that accents the layered poofy bow topped with jingle bells.
Even though I was working on a busy background I wanted a little something extra so I included die cut borders in flat black. A few pearl are the perfect finishing touch.

Give Thanks

Hello to all our ribbon-loving friends!  It's Karen Letchworth sharing today with a card that I sent to my parents for Thanksgiving this year.  All of us here at Really Reasonable Ribbon hope that you all had a wonderful time with family and friends this year, and that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving.  We are so very grateful for all of YOU, and we want you to know how much we appreciate you.
I started with dark brown Bazzil cardstock, and layered it with some gorgeous patterned papers from Prima's new Autumn Moon collection.  I machine stitched the patterned papers to the card stock, and I inked the edges with Corduroy Distress Ink.  The striped flower and the circular chipboard sentiment are also from the Autumn Moon collection.  Everything else I used to embellish this sweet card is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I bundled up some Natural Burlap String and Antique Gold Burlap String, and then attached a bow tied with 5/8" Brown Gingham Ribbon.  I also added a sweet Two-Toned Green/White Paper Leaf and two Deep Ivory Open Roses are tucked in by the bow as well as a little bundle of gorgeous Gold Double-Head Stamens. There's another piece of the 5/8" Brown Plaid Ribbon underneath the chipboard sentiment piece that I secured with a piece of Scor-Tape.  I also used the Scor-Tape to secure all the papers in place.  It's a super sturdy and long-lasting Adhesive, and I use it all the time.  It's fabulous!  Really Reasonable Ribbon has so many FABULOUS products.  Stop by again often, and treat yourself to something wonderful and new.

Have a great week!

The next card, I used another gorgeous ribbon from the assortment.  I love the green ribbon as one side is solid and the other has the checked.

Season's Greetings

Hi ribbon lovers.  Bonnie here today with another holiday card.  If you still have not started your holiday cards, it's time!!  My card today features pretty ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I went slightly non-traditional today with the color palette, but can you really go wrong with a purple and green color combo?  I think not!
My sentiment is from the Jingle Bells digital stamp set from Graciellie Designs and my dies are all from Cheery Lynn Designs.
My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the 5/8" ribbons from the November Ribbon Club Assortment.  The bow was finished off with a pretty Heart Shaped Pearl Embellishment.

For a video tutorial on how to make this pretty bi-color bow, please click HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  More more information on the other items used on my card along with a video tutorial for the poinsettia flowers, please visit my Make Time to Craft blog.
