J O Y Christmas Decor

Hi and happy Monday RRR peeps.  Cherry here sharing this fun decor project.  They are three simple blocks that I had done years ago with scrapbook paper and embellishments etc and added the "JOY" letters too.  I was tired of them and wanted a simple country farmhouse look to them which is what my home decor is.
I was able to take the vinyl 'O' off that I had made with my cricket years ago.  I replaced it with some simple greens and berries!
I wrapped each block with my very, very, very favorite ribbon that I use to decorate with which is the
1-1/2" Red Gingham Ribbon.  I love to use it to add pops of red here and there in my house.
Here they are together.  I love how they turned out.  I have them sitting on a simple antique green Transferware platter and love the simple homey touch it adds to my kitchen.
Home would be a cute idea as well......so many ideas and so little time!!!
Here is also a picture I took of how I use this ribbon in simple ways around the house.   Now tie yourself a bow and deck those halls!!!  
Hugs, Cherry

Christmas Candy Tag

Hello everyone,
Cheryl here today with a super fun and sweet Candy tag I made for Really Reasonable Ribbon using the beautiful ribbons and embellishments. I also used all Cheery Lynn Dies to create this fun project. Hope you enjoy today's post!!
 Base Tag was cut using Cheery Lynn dies pierced stacker #3 dies, and also for the design paper on the front pocket and inside.  I also used Cheery Lynn dies for the tag, oval, poinsettias, and the branches are cut using Wreath Strip 7 Piece Die Set - B216.  The holly leaves were cut using Christmas Bell 7 Piece Die Set - B846 . Centers of flowers were done using Really Reasonable Ribbons Flat Half Backed pearls in sizes 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm.

Bows were made using Really Reasonable Ribbons Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon in Emerald Green, and 1/8" red diagonal striped ribbon. In the center of my bow  I used Really Reasonable Ribbon flatback round pearl flower.

Flowers were done using Cheery Lynns Poinsettia strip and I also used my Glass flower technique on these.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Foam Tabs were used to pop up the tags for the sentiment.
Stamped sentiment was done with JustRite Papercrafts Large Oval Christmas Wishes stamp set.

Design paper is from American Crafts

 I will be making more of these, and will have a video coming soon, showing how fun and easy these are to make. I am making 14 to bring to our doll club Christmas party this Thursday. Cant wait!!
Thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
hugs to all,
Cheryl

Shabby Chic Winter Tag with Window

Hey there Peeps! Ginny here dropping in to share a very shabby inspired winter tag I created with the fabulous new December Ribbon Club Assortment Winter Blues.
I figure this assortment is pretty much perfect to round out your holiday ribbons....and even give you a head start on some New Year's projects! I created a tag with a wintery window scene inspired by the silver trims because they are soooo shabby and soft and gorgeous!



I used several fun mixed media products as well as chipboard pieces and die cuts. There's also some fabby little Snowflake Charms from the embellishments section. I love them so much!!!!  There's also a bit of Twisted Hemp Rope to hang.
Okay that's all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G

Christmas Warmth & Cheer

Hello, sweet blog friends!  It's Karen Letchworth here today, and I wanted to share a couple of sweet Christmas cards I created using some of my favorite trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon, along with some of their new Embellishments.  There are SO many sweet touches available in the Really Reasonable Ribbon Shop to help adorn your cards and projects.  Check this out!
Both of my cards for today were created using patterned papers, stickers and ephemera from Carta Bella's new Christmas Delivery line.  This super sweet Christmas line is just filled with the sweetest designs, and Really Reasonable Ribbon helped me finish them off beautifully!
On my first card (above) I ran a length of the Christmas Traditions Plaid Ribbon, and I also tied a bow with it.  That's topped with a bow of Christmas Baker's Twine, and on top of that are three silver jingle bells tied with a length of Black Burlap String.  I just LOVE how these ribbons, twines and embellishments work together so nicely.  Behind the bow, I tucked a cluster of Wild Orchid Crafts' Bead Berry Spray in White and it gives my card the feeling of Christmas.  Isn't it sweet?
On my second card (above and below), I used two clusters of the Wild Orchid Crafts' Bead Berry Spray in Red.  I just LOVE them.  I cut some felt leaves, and added a bow made from Black Licorice Baker's Twine.  You may also notice that I placed a White Flatback Pearl Sticker on each card.  These sweet pearl accents come in a variety of sizes, and are such a sweet little touch as a random accent or in the center of a flower, etc. You will just LOVE all the great Embellishments carried at RRR (among all their other fabulous ribbons, trims, flowers and more).
Finally, you will notice that I tied a bow of Cherry Baker's Twine to an 11mm Heart-Shaped White Flatback Imitation Pearl and attached it to my card where I had a little ink smudge.  Yes, Embellishments are also a great way to cover our "little mistakes" in crafting.  Again, I used the lovely Christmas Traditions Plaid Ribbon on this card by tying it in a knot and adding it to my cluster at the top right.  I also tucked a small piece of the 1 1/2" Red Gingham Ribbon underneath the journalling tag.  The wider ribbons, like this one, are terrific for adding a sweet touch and to give your cards a lot of great texture and personality.  Really Reasonable Ribbon is a great place to get EVERYTHING you need to make your next card or project extra special!

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget about the fun challenge taking place now on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. We love seeing your creations and having you play along with us.

Blessings to you,
