RRR Autumn Challenge for September!

Wow it's hard to believe that it is Sept already but for me that's good
 because it means the hot weather is over and the
 cool brisk days of fall are coming.

I was out shopping in my local crafty store and found these really 
cute fall cookie cutters and this adorable owl sticker so i thought i would
design a pizza box so that i could put them inside to give with either
brownies or fudge in them wrapped up.  

So how do you make your own box you ask?
Well to customize your own box- lay what you want on a blank piece
of paper and measure the size and then add on the height that you want
to the sides and the back.  I picked just 1 1/2 inches high for mine
and it ended up only using one piece of 12/12 with a small piece added
to the bottom for the flap.  If you google pizza boxes you can find lots
of patterns online to get you started and then you can create from there.

For my project i used these ribbons:
green polka dot sheer ribbon too.  The papers are from Doodlebug
and Bo Bunny dots and the Spellbinders die is one of my favorite 
called Grand Decorative Circles One.  The little Thank you tag is also
from Doodlebug and you might see a few more things with that one later.

Thanks so much for visiting us and be sure and check out all the other
teams designs for the challenge and enter one of your own to win some
of the gorgeous ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons!!

New Quietfire Stamps in the house!!

Quietfire has some really gorgeous new stamp sets that have just been 
released and i had to make up a few cards with them to try them out
and they are wonderful.  They have the new cling mounting on each set
and it makes it so easy to get a good stamp with them.

if you go back to the Quietfire blog you can see all the new sets
and the sentiments for each of them.  There is so many great sayings
in these and the new cling mounts on each of them make the stamping
even easier.  My card above is with the Always be my friend #5615 set.
I used paper from K & Co and dies from Spellbinders to make
the frame, flowers, leaves and all the swirls. And the ribbons 
are from Really Reasonable Ribbon online store. Lots of good things
over there too coming this next month.

For this card i stamped on one of the stickers in the set from Authentique.
It was from the Easy Going set and i just layered a few pieces of the
papers and used a few of the stickers to add on the front.  This stamp 
set is called Twirl and Enjoy #6397 and it too has other great 
sayings in the set.

Thanks for stopping over on this wonderful Sat and hope
you get stop over to online store to see all those new stamps today!!

Hugs and Smiles....Teresa

New Cardmaker Challenge is up...

There is a new Cardmaker challenge up that is about folding things this
time on their Facebook page and i really had fun with this one.  I had 
some things sitting around and started folding and cutting and this is 
what i came up with.  I think it's pretty neat!!  

I love fall and going to the LA County Fair, apple picking and all
the other really fun things you can do at this time of year, so i made
a card that folds out to look kinda like a barn with a pocket inside
to put the card you see with the clouds and that adorable sun
on.  And it folds up easy and has a super cute belly band to hold it.

It looks a bit funny but it folds flat to send in an envelope and then
you can pop it open like you see above and below.

It would be fun to add some extra straw around the bottom and
maybe i will add something more to the belly band which is by the
way from Spellbinders called Belly Band 2.  The sun die
is also from the Spellbinders set from Celebra'tions and you
can see more of it here....

I love using chalks and colored pencils so that is how i colored him.
That's all for today but i will have something fun to share in the next
couple of days with a brand new stamp release from Quietfire!!

So stay tuned and have a wonderful Wednesday!!

RRR Pets challenge for August

 Our challenge this month for Really Reasonable Ribbons is to create
something about or for our pets so i dug through my box of things i need
to use and pulled out an old ovaltine container to repurpose for a dog
biscuit holder.  I had the perfect papers in it too with lots of cute sayings
so i got to work and this is what i came up with....

I had to use 2 strips of paper since it was wider than 12 inches but they
went together great and i added ribbons from the August Ribbon Assort.
and that fun cut bow at the top with another cut tag i had in my stash from
Best Creation....  The tag in the front i bent and glued on 2 pieces of a
Spellbinders die called Scalloped ovals.  And i chalked it just a little so 
that it had the look of those yummy baked dog bisquits.  

For the top i cut a piece of thin chipboard with another Spellbinders die
and a piece of matching paper with cut dog paws on it.  The tag says 
Good Dog all around it and it just seemed fitting for them.  I have 2 really
cute dogs that help me craft so treats for them are a must!!

Be sure and check out the other projects on the Challenge link
on RRR and join us if you have a cute idea and maybe you can win!!

Have a really wonderful day...Teresa

Time for RRR September Blog Hop

It's time for our RRR September Blog hop and this is going to be really fun
since we have such beautiful ribbons to share with all of you this month.

You should have arrived here from   blog and wow how cute was
that project... love this ribbon assortment this month.

I found this wooden frame at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas isle but couldn't
resist getting another one and making up a cute frame put photos of my family
for Halloween each year.  I painted the wooden frame with Americana paints in
Poppy, Leprechaun, lavender fields and black tie.  After it dried really good i 
cut pieces of some of my favorite paper from Pine Cone Press and added those.

Then i cut out a black frame with a Spellbinders die and chalked it just a little 
around the edges to make it stand out.  I also glued on a clip at the top so that i 
could change the pictures every year.  
And of course the best part is the ribbons to finish it.  I made lots of bows to put
at the bottom and the top with the Ribbon Club Assortment this month in gorgeous
shades of orange and green and purple to match. Then i topped it with just a touch of
spidery web looking eyelash yarn and some purple roses that i made to match.

This is going to be fun to add to my decorations this year and i hope that 
i have inspired you to create something fun for your family too.

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing and talented 

RRR August Blog Hop today!!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to our August hop with
Really Reasonable Ribbon !!  You should have arrived here
from Bonnie's Blog......and if you just started be sure and start back
at the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog... we all made so many
neat things to share with all of you this month :)

So... in cleaning up my scrapbook room this month i found lots and 
lots of fun things that i had put aside to do and create for whatever 
so today i am sharing with all of you a Kaisercraft wood frame set 
and another from Creative Imaginations. And of course lots and lots 
of ribbons from the yummy August Ribbon Club Assortment.

I have done a couple of these and found that gluing it together and
 then painting it is alot easier.  I used paints from Americana and papers
from Imaginese to make it.  The photos are from our trip back to Indiana
last fall and we had the best time doing the fall U-Picks.... and the front
piece flips up so i can write about the fun things we did that day :)

And most importantly the ribbons i used for it are: Mesh Ribbons,
Jute String, and orange satin swirls ribbon and gingham ribbon in rust
 from the Ribbon Club Assortment.

This next project is a wood trifold frame that i had from Creative
Imaginations.  I painted it first in brown and then i covered it with pretty
papers from Bella Blvd with lots of die cut stickers.  Then i added
lots of pretty fall colored ribbons from RRR to finish it off.  And all i have
to do is get some wonderful photos this year when we go apple
and pumpkin picking up at Rileys'.  I can't wait its my favorite place.

Thanks for stopping in and the next person on your hop list is
Cherry so have fun and hope you get even more inspired!
