RRR January Ribbon Club Blog Hop: Loads of Love Loaded Envelope

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Welcome to the RRR January Ribbon Club Blog Hop!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, love is in the air!  And Really Reasonable Ribbon has the Sweetheart Ribbon Club Assortment to prove it!  Take a look:

Loads of Love Loaded Envelope with Cupid’s Sweetheart Café

The red ribbons in this assortment were the perfect pairings for this fun dimensional loaded envelope. Here’s how I put them to work:

A Peek Inside

Create a Ribbon Rosette Lollipop to tuck inside the envelope.  Top it with a Pink Delicate Stitched Satin Bow and a glittery gold Valentine heart.  I used a chopstick for the lollipop stem, wrapping it with Scor-Tape and more of the Red Plaid Satin Ribbon.

You just have to add a little love note to a Valentine, so I created this cute heart hot air balloon note card.

There’s room inside to say something sweet to someone you love.

Decorative Dragonfly Shaker Card

Heartfelt Creations Decorative Dragonfly Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

If summertime has not arrived in your part of the world yet, it will soon.  To get you ready for those warm and sunny days, I created this 6×6 shaker card using the Decorative Dragonfly Collection.  What a gorgeous collection this is, and I certainly had a great time playing with it!

All these deep shades of blue and purple needed a pop of white, so I created my shaker frame using the Leafy Borders Die.

  • First, die cut the 4 sides of the frame from white cardstock.
  • Next, apply Dries Clear Glitter Glue to the pieces and dust with Crystal Clear Glitter.
  • Now, mat the frame pieces on pearlized white cardstock and trim to a 6″ square.
  • Then use a ruler and a craft knife to cut out the opening for the shaker frame.
  • Back the frame with clear cardstock and 3 rows of foam tape.
  • Now you can place your shaker mix in the center of the 6×6 card front and press the frame in place.
Decorative Dragonfly Tips &Details

TIP: Short on time?  Use the Dragonfly Florals and Daydream Florals dies to cut images directly from the paper pad.  This means no coloring is required, and saves time!

TIP: Add a bit of sparkle by tapping Dries Clear Adhesive over the die cut florals.  Then sprinkle with Crystal Clear.  To add extra texture and dimension, you can sprinkle some Prills over the flowers, too!

Add a simple sentiment to the card by stamping on a die cut circle charm from the paper collection.  Dress the charm up with a little metal dragonfly and a sweet seam binding bow!

TIP: Small buttons and glass beads are a fun addition to a shaker mix!  Look through your stash and look for buttons and beads that go with the paper collection.

A Peek Inside

You can turn this card into a gift by adding flap page and a box pocket to the design.

The flap page is a nice spot to add a couple of photos, poems or a personal note.

The box pocket gives you room to tuck in a sweet vintage demitasse spoon, chocolate treat, “gift wrapped” cookie, tea bag wallet and honey stick for the tea.  I’ve also tucked in a sweet little ribbon tied  photo folio.

This is so easy to do!  Simply cut out a row of the 4×6 card images from the paper collection.  Then score between the images and accordion fold.  Photos can be matted on the back side of the card fronts, and journaling can be added on the front.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Carole has prepared for you to enjoy.  She’ll have the link to the  next blog in the hop.  But I’ve provided a full list below just in case you get lost.

Sweet Summertime Celebration Recipe Folio

Carta Bella God Bless America Lemonade Recipe Folio by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Sweet Summertime Celebration Recipe Folio for the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a Sweet Summertime Celebration Recipe Folio as my inspiration project for the Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2022 Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog.  Summer is peeking around the corner with all kinds of reasons to celebrate the Red, White and Blue!  And this month’s Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment is here to help you get your craft on!  Take a peek:

Red, White and Blue always looks fabulous together.  You think maybe our Founding Fathers knew what they were doing when they selected these colors for our beautiful American flag?

Carta Bella God Bless America Summertime Celebration Recipe Folio

I would probably never have thought to use lemonade as a key “ingredient” for a patriotic paper collection, but I’m so glad that Carta Bella did!  When they added that pop of yellow to their God Bless America collection, it really juiced things up!  Look at all the ways I paired up the Ribbon Club Assortment with this festive paper collection:

You can dress up the cut out banner with ivory burlap string and bitty bows just for fun, too!

A Peek Inside

The lemon images made me decide to add a few of my favorite summertime lemon recipes to the folio.  First, I created a side pocket with a pull out folio situated on top.  I held this together with another piece of the Red, White and Blue Stripe Satin from the Club Assortment.

Our oldest granddaughter has developed a real passion for cooking and baking, so I thought she would have fun with these  tried and true recipes.  The little house folio holds my famous Strawberry Lemonade recipe.  And no summer is complete without a pan of Lemon Love Note bar cookies!  Yum!

This accordion style folio has room for summertime pictures, too!

We always have a big family 4th of July party, and now she’ll have a place to keep the photos!

The back side of the accordion mechanism has two more of my favorite summertime lemon recipes.

Sophie spotted the folio as soon as she stepped into my studio last week.  She was tickled pink when I told her that it was meant for her.  But I thought  you would enjoy seeing it, too.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has prepared for you.  Be sure to visit the RRR Blog and answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month so you can be entered into the drawing for a FREE Ribbon Club Assortment!

If you’re not a member of the Ribbon Club, I highly recommend it!  It’s like getting a birthday present every single month of the year.  The assortments give you a chance to try out and use a lot of different types and styles of ribbon.  I’ve discovered so many of my personal favorites from the Ribbon Club Assortments.  You can find out how to sign up HERE.

Okay, friends, enjoy the rest of the hop!  I’ve added a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!
