RRR March Hop

It's March Blog Hop time at Really Reasonable Ribbon. Woo hoo!!! The hop starts HERE at the RRR blog. You'll travel along to all the designers' blogs where we'll be showing off this month's Ribbon Club Assortment. You should have arrived from Jacque's blog HERE.

As soon as I saw all these shades of purple, I was off to find myself some pretty paper to match. American Crafts's Dear Lizzy Enchanted was perfect! Here's my layout.

4 Mom

I just LOVE all the different colors in this line. So, so pretty. And just perfect for a layout to document a Mother's Day gift, don't ya think?


Here you can see two of the grosgrain ribbons that I used. The Swis Dots Lavender With Plum Dots is the perfect color match. Too cute tied on my picture. And then for my flower leaves, I used 5/8" Pistachio Grosgrain. LOVE that Spring green color.


For my title, I decided to create a little banner. This one's quite easy. I punched three scalloped circles, folded them in half, secured them with a glue dot, and then strung them onto some Purple Mini Rik Rak.

Thanks for hopping over today! Your next stop is Kerri's blog HERE. You don't want to miss her fabulous project!

Oh, and if you haven't already, you may want to check out the RRR Organization Week posts and giveaway. There are some fabulous tips and product reviews to help with getting your ribbon organized. And there are SEVERAL awesome giveaways. I'd sure hate for you to miss out!

What a stunning project, you´ve made here. Really beautiful. I´m sure any mum would love to get something like this. And I can only agree with you, that you chose some really awesome papers, they really are amazing, and so is these ribbons. I´m a real addict with both papers and ribbons, and these are as near perfect, as they can possibly be. Love it here hun.
