October Hop with Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hi everyone and welcome to the Really Reasonable Ribbon "October" Blog Hop! If you just happened to be visiting, visit the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog to get started. And if you're already taking part in the hop, you should have arrived from Gini's wonderful blog.

This month I'm showcasing ribbon from October's Really Reasonable Ribbon Club Assortment. Here's a bit about the club:

If you really love ribbon and would like to have a wonderful assortment of ribbons sent to you automatically each month, just join the Really Reasonable Ribbon Club! Monthly ribbon club assortments are selected and pre-packed to reflect a specific theme, color, or holiday season. The assortments vary from month to month, but an average assortment has 5-8 different ribbon styles and consists of 10-15 yards of ribbon. The total price of each monthly assortment is $9.00 and includes the shipping/handling fee too!

Here is the October Ribbon Club Assortment:

This month I focused on holiday fun!  With all the beautiful ribbon, creating was easy!  I'm usually one who waits till Christmas to get into the "Christmas Spirit"....but even I have been humming Christmas tunes while working with this month's ribbon club assortment!

First up is a Christmas Card I made:

For this card I used Prism Cardstock, Cottage Christmas Patterned Paper, and Penny Black Stamps all from Paper Garden Projects.  My ribbon and twine are from ReallyReasonable Ribbon.  I colored my stamped image with Copics and added Stickles for shine. 

Next up is a Christmas LO I made using the Ribbon Club Assortment.  The great thing about ribbon is you don't have to be a specific type of crafter to enjoy it!  Cards, LO's, or altered items look terrific with a touch of ribbon!

This picture were taken last year at my Christmas Party with my coworkers.  We always have a great time and the gag gifts are always a hoot!  They'll just love it when they see their pictures being blogged!  I used all My Mind's Eye patterned papers and die cuts.  I simply tacked my ribbon to the top of my page, ruffling it as I went.  Very easy and you don't have to be good at sewing to do this!
