Apple Season Banner

Apple Season Banner Authentique Autumn Collection by Kathy Clement for Really reasonable Ribbon

Apple Season Banner for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  This vintage style Apple Season Banner makes me think of my mom.  Her birthday was in September, and every year we trekked off to a nearby apple orchard to celebrate her birthday.  We picnicked under the apple trees surrounded by the sweet perfume of ripe apples.  Lazy bumblebees provided the background music and a crystal blue sky was the canopy over our heads.  Nothing compares to that first intoxicating bite into an apple picked from a northern orchard.  First you hear the crunch as your teeth break through the skin.  Then the juice runs down your chin and up your forearm as the sweet/tart flesh fills your mouth.  Mmmm…let’s go apple picking!

Shades of Red, Ivory and Rust

Each pennant on this banner is machine stitched onto Rust Silky Crush and Sherry and Ivory Plaid Ribbons.  Ivory Crochet Lace Trim adds just the right touch of vintage goodness.  And burlap string brings in the rustic feel of fallen leaves.  It’s such a pretty combination!

Alternate die cut pennants with Graphic 45 Kraft Regular tags to create a lot of visual interest.  Then die cut Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves from scraps of burgundy and green papers to mimic autumn leaves.

I really had to dig deep  into the Closet of Inspiration and Delight to find this combination of Authentique Autumn Collection and the September Calendar Collection. (Both are retired, but if you do a Google search, you can still find bits and pieces out there.  I will link below.)

Even the flowers are retired Petaloo blossoms.  But they were the perfect color match for the papers, so I had to use them!

What is your favorite fall memory? Tell me about it in the comment section below.  I love to hear your stories, too, you know!

Now I think I will go bake an apple pie!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

Midnight Tales Fold Out Folio

Midnight Tales Fold out Folio for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2021 Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!  This Graphic 45 Midnight Tales Fold Out Folio is my inspiration piece for the Really Reasonable Ribbon September 2021 Blog Hop.  You should be coming here from Ginny’s gorgeous blog.  Today we’re focusing on the spooktacular RRR Halloween Ribbon Club Assortment.

The Grape Diamond Satin Ribbon was the perfect accent for this 5 1/2″ square folio.

It really pops off the page, especially when layered over Black Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Add some ribbon to the spine, too.  It’s always a great accent!

A Peek Inside

Make this simple fold out style folio by joining two 11″ x 5 1/2″ panels of cardstock together.  Then score from the left at 5 1/2″ and 6 1/2″.  This forms the cover and spine of the album.

Then score the rest of the paper every 5 1/4″.  Accordion fold to create this pull out element.  It’s one of the easiest ways to create a quick folio with lots of room for photos and journaling.

Score ephemera cards to create a little flip action on the right hand side of the album.

Add pockets, flap pages and ephemera to dress op the folio pages.

Decorate the background of a page with 2 1/4″ squares of designer paper.  Then top it with a little fold out folio.  This is a great way to use up bits and bobs of designer paper.

Adhere ephemera cards to tip in pages so you will have room to write down those important memories.  Photos can be mounted on the base page.

A little folio like this one can easily be finished in a day.  I only had scraps of the paper collection to work with, but I was pleasantly surprised at  how far those scraps went!

On With the Hop

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties the lovely Cheryl has in store for you.  Be sure to finish up the hop over on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. If you answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month, you will be entered into a drawing for a FREE September Ribbon Club Assortment!

Really Reasonable Ribbon August 2021 Blog Hop

Autumn Splendor Hanging Card by Kathy Clement Little Birdie Woodland Stories Really Reasonable Ribbon

Really Reasonable Ribbon August 2021 Blog Hop with Little Birdie Crafts Woodland Stories

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon August 2021 Blog Hop!   You should be coming here filled with inspiration after visiting Ginny’s gorgeous blog. This month we are featuring the glorious Autumn Ribbon Collection.  Fall is my favorite season of the year, and I look forward to this Club Assortment with great anticipation!  You can see why!

A Woodland Stories Walkabout

Having grown up in New England, I have fond memories of leisurely walks in the Autumn woods.  Leaves crunch beneath your feet as scolding squirrels chatter nervously in the branches above your head.  Vibrant leaves flutter in the crisp fall breeze and above it all a crystal blue sky hangs high in the heavens.  It’s an experience not to be missed, I tell you!

I tried to recreate those sensations with this 6″ x 8″ mixed media hanging card.  Here’s how to put it together:

  • First, cut a 6″ x 8″ panel of orange textured paper from Little Birdie Crafts Woodland Stories. Set this piece aside.
  • Next, cut a 5 5/8″ x 7 7/8″ panel of the small floral pattern from the same collection.
  • Top this with a 5″ x 7″ panel of the teal background pattern and a 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ panel of the bird/floral corner pattern.
  • Now distress the edges of the last 3 layers lightly and paint the edges with white chalk paint.  Then adhere them together.
The Details

Here’s where the ribbon takes center stage!  Wrap the 3 layers with Tornado Blue Taffeta and Autumn Leaves on White Satin Ribbon. There is a slight metallic shimmer to the Autumn Leaves ribbon that really brings this whole piece to  life.

Now  you can adhere the bundled layers to the orange background panel.  Create a bow/flower cluster with Tornado Blue Taffeta, Natural Burlap String and lots of gorgeous Boho Chic flowers from Little Birdie Crafts.  As a finishing touch, tuck in some turquoise and gold feathers.  Then spritz a little hanger (found in my stash) with Copper Mica Spray and attach the hanging card.

On With the Hop!

Now hop on over and see what paper pretties Cheryl has in store for you. Be sure to finish up the hop over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  If you answer Bonnie’s question of the month, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win your very own August Ribbon Club Assortment!

If you’re not a member of the Ribbon Club yet, now is a great time to join!  Each month you’ll receive a lovely package of themed ribbons in your mailbox.  It’s like getting a birthday present every month of the year.  You can find out how to sign up HERE.

Thanks for hopping!

Autumn Greetings Loaded Pocket Card

Autumn Greetings Loaded Pocket Card with Really Reasonable Ribbon and Photoplay Paper

Hello, Friends!  This Autumn Greetings Loaded Pocket Card is such a fun way to celebrate my favorite season!  I love the crisp fall air,  crystal blue sky, crunchy leaves, calling geese and fields of bright orange pumpkins that make autumn such a gorgeous season!  So I thought I would start celebrating early with the Autumn Assortment Ribbon Club from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Hedgehogs and Pumpkins!

Did you hear me squeal when I opened my August Ribbon Club and found this adorable Hedgehogs and Pumpkin Printed Satin Ribbon? I’m not surprised if you did…because it is sooo stinkin’ cute!  In fact, I found loads of ways to use the Ribbon Club on this card!

  • Then top a decorative tag with a bit of the Cappuccino Delicate Stitched Satin , Orange Plaid Ribbon and more fall flowers.
  • Create a little tea wallet and chocolate wallet to tuck inside the pocket.
  • Finally, dress up treats with snippets of ribbon, flowers and burlap string.

Loaded pockets make great gifts for any occasion, and they are so much fun to create.  I hope I’ve shared some inspirational ideas for you to use with your RRR August Ribbon Club Assortment!

Sweet as Honey Bee Themed Card

Country Craft Creations Bee House Reneabouquets Bee Hive by Kathy Clement for Really Reasonable Ribbon Photo 01

Sweet as Honey Bee Themed Card

Hello, Friends!  Just popping in very quickly today with this Sweet as Honey Bee Themed card made with Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Summer is in full swing, and the honeybees are working overtime in our gardens.  How thankful I am for these industrious creatures.  So today’s post is dedicated to our friends the bees who make sweet honey for us to enjoy.

Do you ever use your ribbons to create a border on your cards and layouts?  I love the texture, color and pattern that layered ribbons add.  For this card I topped Daffodil Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon with Bold Yellow Check Ribbon from the July Ribbon Club Assortment.  They complement the Country Craft Creations Bee House papers perfectly, don’t you think?  Everything about this card makes me happy, happy, happy!

Bees, Bows, Blossoms and the Hive

Here’s a neat trick for using up little snips of ribbon.  First, tie a loopy bow from Daffodil Satin.  Then cut fishtail banners on the ends of small piece of Bold Yellow Plaid.  Next, fold the ribbon in half and adhere it on top of the big bow.  Tuck in some natural burlap string and a button to finish the bow cluster.  Isn’t it pretty?

Now create a scene with a Reneabouquets Printed Beautiful Board Sugar Bee Hive, Lemon Blossom Honeybee, and honeycomb background.  Pop these elements up on foam tabs to add lots of depth and dimension to the composition.

Add another pop of color with Little Birdie Wendy Boho Vibes flowers.  Then spatter a little diluted Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over the card to lend that organic, botanical shabby chic finish we all love so much!

A Peek Inside

Turn  your card into a gift by adding  a little tea wallet and honey stick to the interior.  I love it when a card doubles as a gift, don’t you?

I hope you are all enjoying some lazy days this summer.  I’ve been busy as a bee in my studio, working on a big reveal that I’ll share here tomorrow.  You won’t want to miss it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
