Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop with Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio

Hello, Friends!  I’m so glad you hopped on over from Karen’s lovely blog to see this Authentique Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio.  It’s my project for the Really Reasonable Ribbon November Hop and my Authentique Paper Design Team post.

Baking plays a big role in the Clement clan holiday festivities!  What better way to showcase all those treasured special cookie, appetizer and treat recipes than in this lovely 8″ x 8″ folio.  Authentique Paper’s Rejoice collection looks like it was made specifically to go with the gorgeous ribbons in this month’s RRR Club!

Ribbon does more than just tie pretty bows!  It’s also a great way to add a border to a card, mini album or layout.  For the cover, I’ve layered Old Gold Shimmer Satin Ribbon with Snowflakes on Old Gold Satin.  This lends a wonderful richness and elegance to the traditional plaid papers .

The bow cluster features more ribbons from this month’s club: Old Gold Diamond Satin Ribbon and Holiday Dots Satin.   To pick up on these ribbons, I painted the resin frame with white chalk paint, then spattered with gold mica mist.  Shabbylicious!

Gold Reindeer and a festive gingerbread man charm fit right it with all the gold and white ribbons.

The interior of the album is filled with interactive elements and lots of tuck spots for the printed recipe cards that come with the Rejoice collection.  I’ve used ribbon as an accent on many of the pages.

The heart of this Rejoice Christmas Recipe Folio is the pocket waterfall.  Recipe cards can be tucked inside the pockets for safe keeping.  Add a label to the front of the pocket so you know which recipe is inside.   The back side of each page has room for a photo or journaling.  I’ve used more of the Old Gold Snowflake satin ribbon to hold everything neatly in place.

As you can see, there’s loads of room for photos, journaling and recipes here.

It’s easier to view a mini album in a video format, so I prepared a short tour with tips and tricks for you to enjoy.

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.

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!
