Really Reasonable Ribbon November Blog Hop!

Hello friends and happy Wednesday! Linsey here and it's the 13th, so you know what that means...it's time for the RRR November Blog Hop! If you're already hopping, then you should be arriving to me from KATHY'S amazing blog feeling super inspired by her marvelous creation! If not, head over to the RRR Blog to start the hop!
The holidays are all but upon us and so this month, we are featuring silver and gold projects using the festive November Ribbon Club Assortment! The ribbons in this assortment are beautiful! They shimmer, they sparkle and they will add all the shine to your holiday cards and projects this yearI especially love how they are perfect for Christmas, New Year's and even can be incorporated into a blue/silver/gold Hanukkah theme! ! And guess what? You could win it! Just comment on each of the blogs along the hop including the RRR blog for your chance to win the Silver and Gold Mix November Ribbon Club Assortment
I always like to try to use as many of the ribbons from the assortment in my project. In this case, I did use every single one of these gorgeous ribbons to decorate my golden pinecone wreath! I made this wreath by spray painting lots of pine cones I gathered on my nature walks with Kenzie (my 4 year old Beagle). Some I didn't paint and left them natural. After they were all arranged and hot glued into place onto the wreath form, I added all the pretty double bows, which I think finishes this sparkling holiday wreath beautifully! I hope you like it too! 
Here's a close-up of how I layered the ribbons and added an 11mm Silver Glitter Stardust Heart Shaped Rhinestone to the center of each one. I think these sparkly ribbon bows make my wreath extra special!

Silver & Gold Gingerbread Easel Card

Hello friends and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a lovely weekend and to start of the week, I have a super sweet and special holiday card to show you! I just received my new Gingerbread House Die set from Anna Griffin and let me tell you, it is so much fun! Almost as much fun as making a real gingerbread house for the holidays, but without all the mixing, baking and dishes to clean up...just lots of little pieces of paper scraps)😊
And what goes perfect with this silver and gold gingerbread house? The fabulous Silver and Gold Mix November Ribbon Club Assortment, but of course! It sparkles, it shines and it's a match made in heaven with my little gingerbread house easel card! 💖 it! I made a big double bow for the chimney using 2 of the beautiful ribbons from this assortment; Diamond Satin Old Gold and Holiday Dots and Gold Ovals on White Satin Ribbon. I added a Silver Glitter Stardust Heart Shaped Rhinestone to the center of the double bow.
For the decorations on the front of the house, I used 3D foam sheets, then added gold glitter foil to them. I made 2 small bows using 3/8" Satin with Silver Metallic Edge White and added a rhinestone heart to each center, then I placed them atop each gold lollipop.
What a shimmery, glittery good time this festive easel card was to put together! I hope you like it!
And that's all for me today! Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share a bit of holiday inspiration with you! Until next time, happy crafting!

Forever Fall Book Box

Temperatures are dropping and Fall is upon us! I just love this time of year! Hello friends! Today I'm sharing my latest altered project, a lovely book box keepsake to commemorate all the beauty and love this season holds.
The box is covered inside and out with 12x12 papers. The front is decorated with a variety of Fall stickers, chipboard and die cuts. I added a lovely array of flowers to the front as well. They include: WOC Open Roses Orange, WOC Open Roses Deep Ivory, WOC Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms White, and all edges were covered with washi tape. 
The opening holds a pretty tag and features flowing Orange Ribbon from the Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon Autumn Assortment and Theresa White Crochet Lace. The tag is attached with a blue button tied with Burlap String Natural
Inside the box is a space for journaling and there are large tags meant for adding photos from the season as well as more journaling areas. More tags could be added or even small mementos to keep inside the box.
I really enjoyed putting this project together. I hope you've enjoyed seeing it! 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day! Until next time, happy crafting!

Fun Fall Card Featuring Ribbon

Hi friends! I'm up over at the RRR blog today sharing a simple and fun Fall card featuring some of the lovely ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment. This Halloween themed assortment consists of some ribbons that work beautifully for Fall and Autumn themed cards and projects alike. I love the versatility and value of the Ribbon Club Assortment. If you love gorgeous ribbon--duh!--and a great deal--double duh!--check out the RRR Monthly Ribbon Club! I used Black/White Striped Grosgrain and 5/8" Satin with Grosgrain Edge Tangerine.
 A simple bow tied in the middle with the tangerine, some cardstock stickers and a few sequins finish this card.
And that's all for me today! Thank you for stopping by and hanging out. I hope you have a very wonderful and creative day!

Decorated Jam Jars

Hi friends! It's my day over at the RRR Blog and I'm sharing my homemade blackberry preserves all dressed up and ready to be given out! Summer may be over, but I still have plenty of blackberries stored in my freezer from my backyard bushes, which means lots of blackberry jam for friends, neighbors and family this year! I think homemade anything makes for a great gift and fruit preserves are on my short list!
I decorated the lids with pretty fabric squares and tied them up with some Ivory Wrinkle Ribbon. I really like the softness and slight crinkle this ribbon has. It works well with some many projects. I added some hand-stamped tags and attached them with Gold Metallic String. I topped each with WOC Burgundy Open Roses. I plan to add a jar of jam to all my holiday gift baskets this Christmas and I hope you might be inspired to make some homemade gifts this holiday season too! Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hello friends and happy Sunday-funday! Linsey here and it's the 13th, so you know what that means...it's time for the RRR October Blog Hop! If you're already hopping, then you should be arriving to me from KATHY'S amazing blog feeling super inspired by her marvelous creation! If not, head over to the RRR Blog to start the hop!
The holidays will soon be upon us and this month, we're getting a head start on our Christmas projects using the festive October Ribbon Club Assortment! The ribbons in this assortment are whimsical and fun! I especially love the Reindeer on Emerald Green Grosgrain Ribbon and the Christmas Lights on White Satin Ribbon, both brand new and delightful as can be! In fact, all the ribbons in the October Ribbon Club Assortment will be a bright and beautiful addition to your holiday crafts this season! And guess what? You could win it! Just comment on each of the blogs along the hop including the RRR blog for your chance to win this super sweet Christmas Assortment
For my project, I made some jumbo Christmas gift tags! These will be the perfect finishing touch for the specially wrapped presents I'll be giving this year! The ribbons really are the star of these tags and make them very festive! I hope everyone will love them as much as I do! 
I first made bows with the wider, solid ribbons, then attached slighter smaller bows atop each using the 3/8" patterned ribbons. Next, I ran 2 strands of Natural Burlap String through a designer button, making  double-bow, then added to the centers of each ribbon bow. Finally, I hot glued a faux sprig behind each ribbon bow, then glued to the top of each of my handmade jumbo tags.
 You can add "To: and From" sentiments to the tags or leave the blank. For an even more festive look, add stickers like I did. There are lots of great ways to get creative with handmade jumbo gift tags! I hope you like mine and maybe feel inspired to make a few of your own this holiday season! Ho! Ho! Ho! 🎅
