Little Valentine Candy Jar

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing my latest craft project using ribbons from RRR! This easy DIY mason jar-turned-candy jar is a cute and fun way to add some sweetness to your everyday! Place in your home, craft or office space--or share with someone special and see how it sweetens their day!
It's so pretty and sweet, I just 💓 it! I wrapped it around the jar lid and added a bow to the front made with Double-faced Satin Poppy Red and a White Flat Back Pearl in the center. 
The front is decorated with a fancy paper die cut and stickers a bit of delicate Gabrielle Off-White Crochet Lace. The mason jar is always visually appealing since you can see the sweet treats inside. I had fun decorating my little candy jar and I think it will be a super cute addition to my Valentine decor this year. 
That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed my project and feel inspired to make something sweet for someone you're sweet on!! Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy crafting!

More Gingerbread House Cards!

Hey friends and happy Monday to you! I hope you had a marvelous weekend! I finished the rest of my special gingerbread house cards over the weekend, so I thought I'd go ahead and share them with you! They are so much fun to make because I can create one-of-a-kind houses--each and every one is unique and different and I love to use different ribbons and accents to decorate the houses too! So here are few that I have designed using all sorts of pretty things from RRR!
🎅
The first house showcases beautiful Emerald Checkerboard Satin Ribbon. The smaller bows have White Flat Back Pearls added to the centers of them. 
The next house features gorgeous Double-faced Satin in Hot Pink. This ribbon is so luxurious, it doesn't need anything else to accompany it. That bow says it all, don't ya think? ;) 
This third house might be my favorite, which is why I saved it for last It features 3/8" Crosshatch on Red Satin Ribbon. The centers of each bow has an 11mm Silver Glitter Stardust Heart Shaped Rhinestone and White Flat Back Pearls accent the centers of the lollipops and the red poinsettia flower. 
So, which one is your favorite? 
I hope you enjoyed this festive post today and I wish you happy holiday crafting!

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!
