Can it be that another month has gone by so quickly??? Must be because it time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. My favorite time of being on a team of super creative talented designers…when we get to showcase the Monthly Ribbon Club Assortment.
Okay…let’s get hopping. You should be coming to Polly’s from the lovely and talented Misty. If you’re just starting here…..you need to click here to start at the beginning…then follow all the links to see the very inspiring projects created by the design team. Don’t forget to leave a little love for the fabulous projects!
Okay so on to my project. This may shock everyone…but it’s a layout. What????? I know, I’m just as surprised as you are lol. I’m working toward changing out the displays in my shop so be on the lookout for many more layouts to come.
I choose to use the Melina White Crochet Lace and White Iridescent Edged Ribbon from the club to accent my layout. I gave my ribbon a pinch pleat and used my Score Tape to hold it place then simply stitched it down to two offset layers of the lace. This serves to anchor the bottom of the layout and give it visual weight.
I layered a sweet chipboard birdie covered in a bingo card image onto a journaling die cut with a post card image from Graphic’s Fairy. Next comes lot’s and lot’s of flowers. Notice I used more of the lace to “fill in” the flowers a bit and give them a softer edge.
I cut a scallop edge and inked the paper then crinkled the edge before I sewed it all down. There’s quite a bot of sewing on this layout for stability and texture. Pretty pretty Dusty Attic chipboard corners are painted and pearled.
A few more flowers at the top on the pretty tags with dots and gingham. I added the small craft ticket to balance the bird.
So that’s it for my project using the January Ribbon Club Assortment. I hope you like it as much as I do : ) Can’t wait to hang it up in the store!!!
Your next stop in the hop is the very talented and lovely Gloria. I didn’t get to see a sneak peak this month…I think she is super busy creating projects for Really Reasonable Ribbon and Graphic 45 for the CHA. Busy busy girl she is : ) Don’t forget to leave a little love for that hard working designer!
Thanks to everyone for joining us in the hop. Hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative. Huggs G
I have recently discovered the bottle brush bleaching technique. The results were so amazing that I bleached all my little trees. Now how to decorate them? Today I’ll be sharing an easy peasy tutorial on how to crochet a sweet little garland.
First a sneak peek at the finished trees….
I used Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon and Silver Metallic String from Really Reasonable Ribbon to create my garland.
I should mention that the little trees started out looking like the one on the right. After bleaching (do this outside!!!) and allowing to dry I gave them a very generous dry brushing ( do not use your favorite brush) : ( and then added tinsel glitter flakes to make them sparkly.
I used ivory and silver…but you could come up with an infinite number of combinations of ribbon and string to create a look that will be very unique. I also think this little garland could be used on lots of crafts or card making or scrapbooking : )
I’ll be adding these little trees to my village vignette. The would also be beautiful in a cloche ( don’t have one of those yet…maybe I’ll ask Santa) I have also seen them in shabby pink swoon.
That’s it for my tutorial….better go find your crochet hook and get busy making tiny garlands! I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
Can’t decide what I want to call these…since they would work equally well as a small journal or a mini album. The one thing I do know is that the are super sturdy. I choose some of my fav patterns from Websters Pages to create lovely covers and dressed them in pretty trims.
I choose to dress the rings with some olive wrinkled ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. The pages are craft brown…so the natural green and birds coordinated perfectly : )
This one has butterflies : ) and more wrinkle ribbon!
This is two out of three books I made this week. I’ll share the other one tomorrow. Who knows..maybe I’ll get busy and make more : )
Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative! G
