Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio for the RRR June Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon June Blog Hop.  My project inspiration this month is this Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio.  It’s a great match up for the June Ribbon Club Assortment.

You should be coming here from Karen’s lovely blog.  You can find the complete blog hop list on the RRR Blog.  Now let’s take a closer look at the lovely ribbons used to adorn this summer folio.

Simple Stories Simple Vintage Botanicals Folio:  Give Me the Skinny

I decided to go taller and skinner with this folio.  (If only it was so easy in real life!)  The base measures 4 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ with a 1/2″ spine.

Turquoise Plaid Ribbon looks fabulous with all the pinks and greens in this collection, so I chose to use it for the ribbon closure on the folio.  That looked so good that I decided to add a little border strip of it topped with crochet lace.  Then I created a bow cluster using Hot Pink Satin with a Silver Metallic Edge and placed it atop that border strip.  A loopy silver metallic string bow goes perfectly with the metallic edge on the satin ribbon.

Flip pages add so much fun to a folio design.  I decorated this one with butterfly stamps and little sentiment strips from the paper collection.

Here’s a look at the fully opened folio.  As you can see, I’ve used ribbon from the Club Assortment inside, too.

The center box style pocket holds a trio of treats all dressed up with pretty ribbon.  The Tea Wallet is sporting a Turquoise Plaid Ribbon Belly Band.  The vintage silver plate spoon is held in place with a snippet of Hot Pink Satin Ribbon.  I love the color and texture these ribbons add to the interior of the folio.

Even tiny scraps of ribbon can be put to good use!  A folded scrap of Turquoise Plaid Ribbon looks so pretty tucked under the button of this stitched magnet.

Laserowe Love Coral Romance Birthday Card

Laserowe Love Coral Romance Birthday Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Don’t you  just love it when you find the perfect paper collection to you with your RRR Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment?

Laserowe Love Coral Romance Birthday Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

This Laserowe Love Coral Romance paper collection pairs up perfectly with the Bright Pink Plaid Ribbon from the June Ribbon Club Assortment.    I’ve topped it with some retired Petaloo flowers from my stash to make a pinkalicious bow cluster.

Everything about this card says “Summer is here!”

The gorgeous lasercut chipboard frame on this card is also from Laserowe Love.  I’ll tell you more about them in a moment.  But first, let’s take a look inside this pretty pink card.

I used a new Heartfelt Creations Pocket Die to made the hidden pocket on the card interior.

Then I used the cut out tags from the paper collection to make this adorable book mark.  The sentiment stamp is so fun, don’t you think?  It’s a retired stamp set that I just love.

Here’s how I made the bookmark:

  • First, trim the tag from the Coral Romance Paper Collection.
  • Then adhere only the top edge of the tag to a slightly larger rectangle of the coral fabric paper in the collection.
  • Now trim about 1/8″ around the tag to make a 2-layer tag.
  • Next, stamp a sentiment on a scrap of cream cardstock and trim it out into a square.
  • Then stitch the sentiment onto more of the coral fabric patterned paper and adhere to the tag.
  • Punch a hole at the top of the tag and loop crochet lace, 3/8″ Hot Pink Satin with a Metallic Edge,  and Summer Fun Diamond Print Grosgrain Ribbon through the hole. (These are all part of the June Ribbon Club Assortment.)
  • Slip charms over a length of silver metallic string and tie to secure in place. Add to the ribbon cluster.
  • Tie a bow with Bright Pink Plaid around the above ribbons to hold everything in place.
  • Adhere a pretty flower to cover the knot.

By leaving the bottom 2/3 of the tag open, you can now slip it over the pages of a book, making the perfect bookmark.

Laserowe Love Coral Romance Birthday Card: Who is Laserowe Love?

If you are like me, I had never  heard of Laserowe Love until I received a lovely message from my new friend, Sylwia at Laserowe Love about 6 weeks ago.  She sent me a link to her website and asked if they could send me a box of goodies.  And of course, I said yes!    I’m so glad I did, because these paper and laser cut primed chipboard pieces are gorgeous.  Here’s a look at my unboxing video.

You can purchase Laserowe Love products in the US at The Frantic Stamper.

Authentique Liberty Pie Shaker Card Folio

Authentique Liberty Pie Shaker Card Folio with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Memorial Day is upon us, so I thought it would be fun to share this Authentique Liberty Pie Shaker Card Folio with you all.

Authentique Liberty PIe Shaker Card Folio by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

This 5″ x 7″ top fold card folio features a really fun shaker frame focal.  Here’s how I made it:

Authentique Liberty Pie Shaker Card Folio: The Ribbon

Tie a bold and beautiful Electric Blue Diamond Satin Bow and adhere it in the lower right hand corner of the frame.  This gorgeous ribbon is part of the RRR May Ribbon Club Assortment. Top this with a loopy Gold Metallic String Bow and a red posy.

Note: because so many of you ask, the die cut behind the focal image is a combination of the Heartfelt Creations Circle Basics Large and Eyelet Circle Dies.

Authentique Liberty Pie Shaker Card Folio: The Flower Cluster

To go with the pie theme of this fun card, I added some (retired) Petaloo Blueberry picks to my Little Birdie Roses, WOC Gold Bead/Berry Clusters, and Glitter Stars.

Authentique Liberty Pie Shaker Card Folio: A Peek Inside

Oh, look!  It’s a party!  Here’s a flip page and a pocket detail tucked inside the card.

To make the flip page, cut a 7 1/2″ x 6 7/8″ panel of Authentique Spectrum Tricycle Red Cardstock.  Score it just short of 5″ on the long side and fold to form a flap.  Then cut a couple of 4″ x 3″ images from the Liberty Collection and mat them on Old Glory Spectrum Cardstock.  Adhere these on the front side of the flip page, then decorate the back as you see fit.

Create a 4″ x 6″ envelope with an envelope punch board.  Adhere the envelop flap to the card base.  This is a really quick and easy way to make a flip element for a card.  Tuck the recipe inside the envelope.

To fill the bottom pocket, create a magnet!  Place 2 Large Basic Grey Magnets on the back of the mason jar image.  Stitch the image onto a panel of red canvas ticking that you’ve edged with burlap trim. Top with a double loop bow tied with 3/8″ Patriotic Plaid Ribbon.

I can’t believe the summer holidays are already upon us!  The year is really flying by!  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have served in our military, or offered up a loved one in service.  I salute you!

I look forward to this lovely assortment every month, but the red, white and blue assortment is always a special treat.  Let’s take a look at the details of this festive card folio.

Every cowgirl needs a pair of star spangled boots, don’t you think?   I’ve dolled this card up with the Tiny Stars on Poppy Red Grosgrain Ribbon from the assortment.  Then top the double loop bows with Ivory Burlap String and a star shaped button to amp up the patriotic vibe.

This shaped magnet is all dolled up with a 3/8″ Patriotic Plaid Bow, a posy and more star  buttons. The Tiny Stars on Poppy Red Grosgrain ribbon serves as a handy closure for the 4 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ accordion folio.

Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope

Authentique Abundant Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope for the RRR April Hop

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon April Blog Hop. You should be coming here filled with inspiration after having visited Karen’s lovely blog.  With Easter fast approaching, I decided it would be fun to create a Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope using the April Ribbon Club Assortment and Authentique Paper’s Abundant Easter Collection.

The base is a 5″ x 7″ kraft envelope filled with tags and goodies from the Easter Bunny!  Yellow and Gray ribbons from this month’s ribbon club really work with this vintage style paper collection.

Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope: The Front Side

The front of the envelope is also decorated.  I’ve stacked Daffodil Checkerboard Satin Ribbon with 3/8″ Metal Gray Plaid to form little bow clusters in the corners of the focal image.  Yellow bead/berry sprays really brighten things up tucked in with the ribbon and Little Birdie Flowers. A fussy cut banner from the paper collection is a great way to get the party started.

Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope: The Details

  • Fussy cut the baby chicks image and pop it up with dimensionals.
  • Cover chipboard bunnies with designer paper and add micro rose garlands.

  • Create twin bow clusters for the envelope sides and top with roses.
  • Pop the ends of a Cardstock Elements banner up on foam dots and adhere to the envelope flap.
Easter Blessings Loaded Envelope: What’s Inside?

This trio of treat tags, the vintage silver spoon and the honey stick have all been dressed up with ribbon.  I’ve wrapped a package of Chocolate Biscoff cookies with designer paper and a tag from the collection.  You get such a generous amount of the Daffodil Checkerboard Satin and the Metal Grey Plaid that there is plenty to go around!  And of course, I had to throw in a little Ivory Burlap String.

All the tags are decorated with an image on the front and a treat pocket on the back.

I’ve added a Spellbinder’s Triple Tear Circle and some cute Eileen Hull Banners and Pennants Dies  to each tag.

The third tag has a little notecard tucked into the pocket.  Make this by folding the 4″ x 6″ image in half on the long side.

I like to think of these loaded envelopes as Easter Baskets for grownups.  It’s fun to dress them up with pretty papers and ribbons.

On With the Hop!

From here, you will hop on over to Cherry’s blog.  Finish up at the RRR Blog  where you will find the complete hop list.  Answer Bonnie’s question of the month to be entered into the drawing for a free April Ribbon Club Assortment.
