Christmas Recycled

Hi all,

Today is a sad sad day, today I am announcing my last post for One Stitch At A Time. I have been with the DT for 4 yrs, I think. I just want to say how much I am going to miss them and want to Thank Stitchy and Jane and my teamies for all the years of fun, support and encouragement. They definitely have pushed me to try new things and broaden into other areas of crafting/art that I would have not tried. Being on a DT for that long it's like family. You get to know each other and make friendships that are treasured for a long time. I will miss being a part of such a fabulous team.

For this New Challenge at One Stitch At A Time I created a couple of Christmas items, a card and matchbox gift box. The New One Stitch At A Time Challenge theme - Anything Goes with Recycling. 

For this card I used PBD Christmas Flakes 3. I just love the beautiful Non-Traditional colors of 
this set. So soft and pretty, yet it still has a Christmas feel to it. This paper set is digital paper but
it is just gorgeous. For the Recycling portion of the challenge I used some Prima gems 
that I had placed on a photo frame a while back. I pulled them off and then glued them down
around my beautiful Christmas bulb image. And I placed the remaining ones inside the 
the little box I created with this beautiful paper. 

Here is close up of the Christmas card I created. I used the gems I recycled from a photo frame.
I added stickels to the Christmas bulbs and Christmas trees. One of the digital papers has these
pretty little holly leaves with pink berries so I fussy cut those out and adhered them to the card.
Another design paper in this set has the words Merry Christmas which I cut out with one of my 
label dies and popped up to make it look 3D. I just love how this card turned out so pretty. 

 Here is a close of the matchbox Christmas gift box I created. For the top of the box I used
the digital paper that had Merry Christmas and the bottom of the box  I used the blue digital 
design. I created a bow from the holly paper and fussy cut out the holly and adhered in the 
middle of bow and used a pink pearl for the centers of both of the holly's.

 Here is the inside of the matchbox and I covered the bottom with another 
one of the digital papers, and along the sides I placed gems.

Christmas Hair Accessories

Hi all,

Today is my last post for Really Reasonable Ribbons. I am so sad to be leaving such a wonderful team. I feel so honored to have been a part of Bonnie's team and to have worked with her for the past 6 months.I have learned so much from Bonnie and the team. I truly have loved every minute of it and loved working with such beautiful ribbons from her store. Thank you Bonnie for having me on your team, I've had so much fun!

For my last post I made a few items with the beautiful ribbons from this months Ribbon Club Assortment - Traditional Christmas Mix. I seriously had a hard time deciding on what to make. lol
I made several different hair accessories with this beautiful assortment. I used Bonnie's tutorial again to make the hairband and I made a baby hair clip and a regular hair clip. Of course I am giving a couple to my granddaughter and one to my great neice Sophia, who was just born.

Here are the items I used to make all my Hair Accessories, you can find all these at
Headband, Rectangular clips, and Round Head Snap Clips

Here is a photo showing all the items using the 

 For this headband I used Bonnie's tutorial showing you how to use Really Reasonable Ribbons
to create these awesome headbands. I added a bow on top of the headband
with a little red flower embellishment. 

Here is a close up of the little red flower embellishment. 
These are new in the store and they are so so cute. I totally love these
little embellishment. They are 10mm Resin Flower with Rhinestone Flatback
Cabochons. I have the multi colored pack that comes with red, white and other colors.

Here is a photo of the two hair clips I created using October ribbon club assortment -
Traditional Christmas Mix. These ribbons are truly beautiful bright green and reds for
Christmas, they are just gorgeous. I coldn't help but add the cute little flowers in the middle. 
These little flowers are just cute. Great addition to any project. 

Here is the back of the first hairclip using the 2 3/8 inch round head snap clip.
I only glued the ribbon on the top of the clip and at the ends of the bottom of the clip, as I didn't 
want it to have an affect on the opening and closing of the clip. I created a triple layered bow with my Bow it All, bow maker. I then double layered my bows, last I glued the little acrylic flower on top of the bow.  

A close up of the side of the 2nd hair clip, showing how I glued the ribbon onto the Rectangular clip with teeth.  These little hair clips are just perfect to make baby hair clips. 


Thank you all so much for stopping by today I so appreciate it. I hope you are inspired to use some of these items. I just love using the ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons they are just gorgeous, and the flowers are just beautiful. Check out the items I used plus other wonderful items at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.  As I sign off for the last time with Really Reasonable Ribbons I would like say again, Thank you Bonnie for inviting me on your team and all your support. 
Stay tuned as I have a wonderful announcement coming up Next Week. Plus a giveaway. :D 

Hugs and wishing you all a great crafty day,

A Little Trinket Box

Hi all,

I have a Design Team project I created for Really Ribbon Ribbons today. A little trinket box I created using some great ribbons, beautiful wild orchid flowers and some fun little trinkets that are new at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.

I do have an announcement before I get started, this is my second to last post I will be doing for the Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team. I am really sad that I am leaving the team they are such a great team to work with and Bonnie Garby is just amazing. I just want to say Thank You to Bonnie for having me on your team it has been a pleasure and I've had a great time using your beautiful ribbons and wild orchid flowers. Thank you Bonnie.

Here is my project -
So here is my new Trinket Box. Yep, I made myself something for once. lol
I am so excited I just love it, I used the beautiful Blue Fern paper collection - Blush. 
 I am putting my charms and little trinkets inside. 
So I used some Wild Orchid Flowers for the top used with the beautiful 
Acrylic Rhinestone embellishments, these are so beautiful! You gotta check these out. 

Here is a great shot of two sides of my box showing the vivid pink seam binding and 
I also used the Bow It All V3.0 to create my bow.

 Here is a great shot of the sheer box pleats white ribbon I used around my edge of my lid. 
I used some tiny strands of white pearls I had in my stash, I bought from JoAnns a while back. 

 Here are a couple of photos showing the top of my box. I actually placed the seam binding bow down first and then laid my flowers around it, added my tiny pearl 
strands around the flowers. Then I added more flowers around the top. 
I just love these little flowers they are just darling. 

Just so you know I have used this Sheer Box Pleated ribbon a few times and I just love it.
I have to say it's probably one of my favorite ribbons from the store as it's so versatile.

A Little Happy Witch

Hello all,

Today at One Stitch At A Time we are having a new challenge - Anything Goes with Halloween Colours. Yep, you heard right, Halloween Colours. You can upload any project as long as it has Halloween Colours.
For this challenge I used KT Trick or Treat by IKEsART found at Stitchybear Stamps Digi Outlet.
So here is my POP-UP Card

For the front of the card I used I used some papers from my stash
and used Blue Ferns Chipboard webs and black cat. I used BoBunny Black
Gesso for the spider web and black cat. 

When you lift up the card the little image KT trick or treat pops up with the 
pumpkin and little ghost by her side. 
For my background I used some Halloween design papers in my 
stash and fussy cut some bats and cut out Happy Halloween 
from my cricut. 

My little witch image she I used my copics and. I thought some 
bright orange and yellow hair would be fun. I printed the image on a sheet of 
Authentique's Mysterious design paper, fussy cut her little dress
 and colored purple with my copics.
