This is a 6″ x 6″ top fold card made with Carta Bella’s Spring Market Paper Collection.  Adorned with Kiwi Satin with a Grosgrain Edge and 3/8″ Kiwi Satin Swiss Dots Ribbons, it gives me hope that spring is coming!

I’ve tucked this mini tag album inside the dimensional pocket on the front of this card.  It’s dressed up with ivory burlap string, a snippet of Kiwi Satin Swiss Dots ribbon and some darling bee charms.

Ribbon takes center stage inside the card as well.  I love to use ribbon to create a border on a card, so wrapped 5/8″ Apple Diamond Satin Ribbon to my flap page and tied a simple square knot to hold it in place.

Behind the flap, I’ve tucked a little tag inside the diamond satin ribbon.  A shallow pocket holds a cute tea bag wallet.

Even a ribbon scrap finds its way onto the honey stick, then topped it with a rose blossom button.

I tied an itty bitty bow with help from my Zutter Bow it All Tool, then added in the corner of this cute gift card wallet.

Stamperia Baby Girl Shaker Card

Stamperia Baby Girl Shaker Card with Pearl Pink Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  A while back, I shared a sweet Stamperia Baby Boy Blue card folio with you.  I thought it only right to give equal time to baby girls.  This Stamperia Baby Girl Shaker Card is adorned with Pearl Pink Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon, Little Birdie Flowers and a darling shaker element.

This Pearl Pink Swiss Dots Satin Ribbon is soft and sweet, and oh so easy to work with!  After creating a double loop bow with my Zutter Bow it All Tool, I topped it with some Ivory Burlap String and a sweet Posie from Little Birdie Flowers.   The  Blush Sequin Mix shaker pouch adds some sparkle and shine to the card design.

These lovely shimmer roses are also from Little Birdie Flowers and available at your local AC Moore.  The little novelty buttons add a touch of fun to the card design.

Prima Spring Farmhouse Valentine

Prima Spring Farmhouse Valentine for the RRR Hop

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the January Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  Today I have a Prima Spring Farmhouse Valentine to share with you.

The January Ribbon Club Assortment is filled with all sorts of delicious pink ribbons.  I chose to add this soft and dreamy 5/8″ Light Pink Sheer Organza with Satin Center ribbon from the club assortment.

First, I tied a triple loop bow using my Bow-it-All Tool.  Then I topped that bow with a loopy Pink Burlap String bow.

A smaller bow cluster in the upper left hand corner helps to frame the sentiment panel.

I kept the inside of this Prima Spring Farmhouse Valentine pretty simple.  Just a sentiment panel on the top, and a simple pocket with insert on the bottom.

Create the insert with one of the 4″ x 6 Spring Farmhouse Journal Cards and some extra pieces of brown cardstock.

Tuck a tea bag, a honey stick and an individually wrapped chocolate inside for a sweet Valentine greeting.  There’s plenty of room to write a personal greeting inside this little gift wallet, too.

Authentique Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio

Authentique Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio with Tutorial Links

Hello, Friends!  Happy Christmas Eve Day!  A few weeks ago, I shared a tutorial for THIS adorable “Santa Paws” card folio tutorial.  Today, kitties take the spotlight with this Authentique Nostalgia Meowy Christmas Card Folio.

One of the things I love the most about this festive collection is that it works for people or for pets.  And who wouldn’t love to find this little basket of Christmas kitties under the tree?  I’ve adorned this card with one of my favorite holiday ribbons: Vintage Christmas Plaid.  To add just a touch of holiday sparkle, I topped my double loop bow with some Gold Metallic String and some miniature holiday ornaments.   To create this feline version of the Santa Paws  folio, you can follow the same YouTube video.  Just switch out the dog images and sentiments for cat images and sentiments.

This 5″ x 7″ x 1/2″ card folio is filled with feline fun!  Pockets, folio inserts, hidden pull out tags and flaps make opening this card as much fun as opening a Christmas present.

The flap mechanism on the top of the card opens to reveal this shaped pocket filled with little treats.

This would be a great spot to add a personal message, a photo or even a gift card. And do you spy the adorable snowman chocolate peeping around the corner?

The large pocket on the bottom is decorated with a fussy cut Santa image and some cute hinge stickers.  A mini candy cane fits perfectly into the pocket.

This 6″ x 4 1/4″ accordion style folio has a sweet magnetic flap closure.  You can learn how to build it HERE.   Just switch out dog images for cat images and you’re all set!

I’ve added some little tuck spots inside this festive folio.

If you did not want to use magnets here, you could always tie the folio with more of that pretty Vintage Plaid Ribbon!

Now, I have some last minute Christmas preparations to attend to, so I’d best be off.  But before I go, I’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas.  May peace, joy, love, family and friendship fill your heart with good cheer.

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Blues Christmas Folio

Winter Blues Christmas Folio for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the RRR December Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.   Today’s project is a Winter Blues Christmas Folio made with Kaisercraft “Frosted” and the Winter Blues Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Winter Blues Christmas Folio Kaisercraft Frosted by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Is there any color combo that’s more wintry than blue and white?  Once again, I pulled out my few remaining bits and bobs of Kaisercraft Frosted to play alongside this scrumptious 5/8″ Porcelain Diamond Satin Ribbon.  Combined with a little Silver Metallic String it really makes the design on the front of this 7″ x 5″ folio pop!

The folio is wrapped with another length of Porcelain Diamond Satin.  Leave the tails long to serve as the closure for the folio.

Winter Blues Christmas Folio: The Bow Cluster

Winter Blues Christmas Folio Kaisercraft Frosted by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 03

I used my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool to tie this 3 1/2″ double loop bow and the 4 loop metallic string bow.  If you struggle with tying bows, I really recommend this tool.  I use it every time I craft because using it is like having an extra pair of hands in the studio.

To complete the bow cluster, string two silver glitter jingle bells on more metallic string.  Tie a knot to keep them from slipping off.  Then add a small dab of hot glue to the top of your bow cluster and place the knotted string in the glue.  Immediately add the Little Birdie Margery Ivory Flower on top to hold the jingle bells in place.

This is a very simple folio design and is almost identical to the folio I made a while back with Garden Goddess.   The left hand side hosts an 8 page waterfall.  On the right, there’s a little pocket with goodies tucked inside.

Winter Blues Christmas Folio: The Waterfall

Each of the eight pages in the waterfall measures 4″ x 4 3/4″.  To hold everything closed, I devised a little magnetic belly band.  (These cute die cut silhouettes are from Spellbinders..and they are on sale right now! )

You can fit 16 photos inside the waterfall feature.

I’ve decorated the pages with tuck spots and  flaps for journaling and extra fun.

Winter Blues Christmas Folio: The Pocket

The side pocket is filled with this sweet little tea bag/gift card wallet, a hand crocheted ivory snowflake and a honey stick.

Winter Blues Christmas Folio Kaisercraft Frosted by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 10I’ve topped the snowflake with the last little bit of the Porcelain Diamond Satin Ribbon so it’s ready to hang on the tree.

Here’s a look at the empty pocket, with the same sweet couple from the cover of the folio.  There’s room for photos, recipes or other goodies here.

I have a tutorial for this folio base made with another collection HERE.

On with the hop!
