Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop


Hello Friends!!
I am so excited to be participating in my first 
Hopefully you are visiting me from Cherry's Blog.
If you are just joining the blog hop, then you will want to start at the 
Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.
That way you can see what you can win!!  
Through out the hop you are going to see some fabulous creations using this month's
Here is a photo of it below!!  So rich and elegant don't you think?
You can take a peek of the video below to see this month's assortment!!
Here is my "Vintage Ladies Victorian Boot."
I created my own Vintage Boot Template (in inskcape), and digital paper (in GIMP).  
Ribbons & Trims I used from Really Reasonable Ribbon
I love how sparkly the ribbons and glitter are!!  I inked all my edges with Ranger's Vintage photo distress ink.  Used my crop o dile to punch all the wholes, and set the grommets.  I used Art glitter glue with an adapter, to create the thin outline around my boot.  Then I applied a Martha Stewart glitter (from a variety pack).  The vintage buttons are from my stash.
I used some of the slate grey/silver ribbon from this month's ribbon assortment behind my text boxes to make them "Pop" off the boot.  The curly trim laced up my boot beautifully!  The Angel is a Digital Stamp from the 
Angelica Collection at Gecko Galz. 
Let's take a peek at the back.
I used the same ribbons and trims, just did them a little differently.
You can just make out the diamond pattern to the red ribbon.  It has great texture!  I used the candi foam dots between all my layers.  There are two boots, and two boot caps.  The ones between the boots are what created the pocket so that the candy canes could slide in.  The ones between the boot and the caps, are what allowed the pom pom trim to hang so nicely.
I did place grommets on both sides of the boot (18 total).  I love how they look!!  

My Ladies Vintage Hat Gift Card Holder
Again, I created my own template and digital paper.  The images are from the Graphic Fairy.  
I used the Black Diamond ribbon from this month's RRR assortment, white curly trim, Penelope lace, Ivory Jute ribbon and Moss green may art leaves to add to the vintage feel of my card.
Here is a look with out the gift card.
