RRR Blog Hop BEE Thankful Gratitude Journal with November Ribbon Club
Hello, Ribbon Lovers! Welcome to the RRR November 2015 Blog Hop. If you’ve just hopped over from Karen’s lovely blog, then you are right on track! If you somehow got lost along the way, please visit the RRR BLOG where you will find the complete list for this hop. We’re working with the elegant ribbons in the November Ribbon Club this month. I was inspired by the gorgeous gold shimmer satin ribbon and put together this BEE Thankful Gratitude Journal with a little help from my Graphic 45 Botanicabella paper collection. But first, here’s a look at the scrumptious ribbons in this month’s ribbon club.
The photo really doesn’t do this collection justice as it is one of the most luxurious, elegant ribbon club collections this year. I’m totally in love with every inch of this fabby ribbon! For some reason, the gold ribbon made me think “Thanksgiving.” And thinking about Thanksgiving made me think about the golden hued papers in Graphic 45’s Botanicabella papers and about gratitude. So I whipped out my scissors and glue and went to work on this BEE thankful gratitude journal.
This is a pre designed kraft album from Crafty Secrets. It looks tiny, and measures just 3.75″ x 5.5″ when all closed up. But the accordion folds of this lovely album open out to measure a full 21″ long with loads of pockets, peep holes and room for fun.
I added ribbon topped manila tags, sticky notes, gratitude quotes and beautiful paper to the kraft album base. I’ll just let the pictures do the talking for me.
This little album is loaded with texture, color, inspiration and fabulous ribbon! It’s one of my favorite projects this month.
Now hop on over and visit Leslie’s fabby blog for even more ribbony goodness.
If you’d like to purchase this gratitude journal, you can find it in my ETSY shop.
