My Favorite Really Reasonable Ribbon for the RRR February Blog Hop

 

Hello, Friends!  Today I’m sharing  my favorite Really Reasonable Ribbon for the RRR February Blog Hop. Welcome!  You should be coming here from Gloria’s lovely blog. If not, why not head back to the RRR Blog and start from the beginning so you don’t miss any of the terrific projects.

Be sure to comment on the blog hop post on the RRR Blog for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Really Reasonable Ribbon along with one Digital Stamp Set of your choice from Bonnie Garby Designs.

As you probably know, I’m a huge fan of plaid: ribbon, paper, fabric….I love me some plaid!  And as happy coincidence would have it, the RRR shop is loaded with Gingham and Plaid Ribbon in all colors, varieties, widths and sizes.  Depending on the season, my favorite changes, but more often than not, I find myself reaching for beautiful Mini Check Coral Rose Ribbon. If you’re looking for a perfect shade of pink to go with Prima,  Stamperia or G45 papers, this is it, my friends.  And as a bonus, it comes in two different widths: 3/8″ and 5/8″, so it works on all kinds of projects. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Coral Rose Mini Check Ribbon and Miel Mixed Media Wall Hanging

This mixed media wall hanging features the 3/8″ width ribbon.  It’s the perfect size to tie around the mini vintage coat hanger.  I also love the way the checked ribbon picks up on the checked flowers in my bow cluster.  If you are a fan of crisp, poufy bows, this ribbon is a great option.

Here’s a closer look at the embossed, mixed media background for this wall hanging.  If you’d like to see how I achieved this effect, you can check out the video tutorial .

To see what kind of ribbon Cheryl likes best, please hop on over to her blog and say hello!  Then finish up over on the RRR Blog to answer Bonnie’s Question of the Month.  She’s giving away a $10 shopping spree and a FREE digital sentiment stamp  to one lucky ribbon lover!

Taperlogy Autumn Butterflies Collage Card

Taperlogy Autumn Butterflies Collage Card

Hello, Friends! A few weeks ago I shared this Taperlogy unboxing video on my YouTube Channel.  My fingers have been itching to get into all those paper pretties.  Yesterday I finally carved out a few spare minutes to go through the box again and plan a project.  I did not have enough time to make a junk journal, but I did manage to put together this pretty Autumn Butterfly Collage Card.  All the papers, embellishments and trims (except the key and the flowers) came out of that amazing box.

Lots of Layers

Layer after layer of paper goodness can be found on this card.  Here are a few tips that I learned while working with the Taperlogy products.

  • First, trim two of the Jidan Specialty Papers to a width of 4 7/8″.  Place one on the top of your card base and one on the bottom to cover the 5×7 area and still leave a border.
  • Next, stitch around the edges and add a lace border from the Naili Laces Frames Material Pack.  Save the small off-cut piece of lace as we will use it later.
  • Now, adhere a coffee dyed doily from the Jelan Junk Journal Pack in the upper left hand section of the card base.
  • Then adhere the gold foil bird ticket ephemera from the Danta Junk Journal Mystery Pack.
  • Now add florals from the Chado Flower Sticker Pack.  These are translucent, so they layer nicely over the lower layers.
  • Remove the jute string and fiber from the packing envelopes and wrap the center of the card where the two patterned papers met.  Tie on a copper key as an embellishment.

Select a Dentu Sticker Frame sticker frame for the bottom of the card.  Remove the center and then select a large Holu Butterfly to fill it.  Adhere the saved bit of lace below the butterfly to add a pop of color and texture.

All that remains now is to add a few buttons and petite flowers to finish off the card.  Or, keep the panel and use it later as a cover on a junk journal.  I’m writing a note to a dear friend inside my card.

If you’d like to see more of the goodies that came in my box, you can review the YouTube video or visit my page at Taperlogy.
