Guest Designing for Craft Hoarders and Creative Cutting Challenge

Hello Friends!!
I hope you are having a fabby day!
Today I have two things I would like to share with you!!
First up I am super excited to be Guest Designing for Gloria's Craft Hoarder's Challenge!!
The Challenge is Ribbon, Lace and Twine and the Sponsor is 
Really Reasonable Ribbon!
(you need to use ribbon on your project).
I would also like to share with you what I have made for the 
Graduation Challenge that we have going on at 
the Creative Cutting Challenge.
All you have to do is use an SVG file and create something with a graduation theme.  Of course I have used Ribbon, some twine and lace and will be linking it up to Gloria's Challenge :0).  I used the Graduation Cap svg (and created a shadow layer), cut off the tassel and added one made of cotton candy baker's twine.  I have Juliet lace across the bottom of my card as well as some buttons also tied with the same baker's twine.  I used my Bow it all tool to create a lovely bow out of pink salmon seam binding.  Topped that with a sweet Pink wild Rose.
I used Cindy's Graduation File You can get it for $2.00.  
 Here is a look at the set below.

Here is a close up of the upper left.
You can see where I used the Jennifer lace, bay leaf seam binding and metal gray swiss dots ribbons tucked under my focal pieces.
Back to the Ribbon Challenge at Craft Hoarders.
I created my album using large shipping tags.  Then created pockets and tiny tags out of a couple different digital papers that I designed.
I used a lot of lovely ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I plan on filling up the book with photos and giving it to my In Laws for their 50th Wedding Anniversary.   
I added a couple photos to some of the tags...I am waiting for other family members to send some photos.  Then I will add more ribbons and flowers :0)
Here is a close up of the binding ribbons.
I used the same metal grey swiss dots, salmon, bay leaf seam bindings as above.  I also used the Havana brown seam binding, pink diagonal, and old willow organza to decorate my binding.
Here is a close up of the Ties and tiny tag.  I used some of the baby pink and deep ivory mulberry roses through out my album.
Here is a close up of the cover.
The tiny text boxes are from a collage sheet I designed.  You can find it and other color text boxes here.   I used the Edna Lace, as well as salmon pink seam binding, moss green leaves and some beads to hold my tags in place on the cover.   I also used my Perfect layer's rulers to create all of my mats for both my card and my album.  You can receive a 5% discount if you use my promo code Heather5%.
