Photo Inspiration Challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon


Hey there Peeps…it’s about time for a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Our inspiration this time is a beautiful picture from Aiken House & Gardens Blog. 11078126_895548927163794_2510017229126535217_nUse whatever inspires you from the photo – the color, the flowers, the birdhouse….. and incorporate that in to your project.

I was inspired by the flowers and the weathered wood from the birdhouse.

Retro Vintage Apron Wall Hanging


Hey there Paper Peeps. Ginny here to share a really awesome and really retro wall hanging. I used my new favorite Sheer Cherry Red ribbon for Summer projects from Really Reasonable Ribbon of course.

I created these great little layered aprons with images from Domestic Goddess Creative Scraps. The papers are from Creating with Vintage Patterns CD.

I also used Turquoise Striped Twill ribbon for the funky retro vibe….and it’s great layered up with the cherries : )

Red Plaid Ribbon is the perfect accent.

I added some gorgeous coordinating flowers from Petaloo and groovy little patterned buttons.
