May Arts Ribbon Blog

Best of The Prima Ribbonistas Blog Week – Day 1 {and a giveaway}

It has been such a great year here on the May Arts Ribbon Blog and there has been so many inspirational projects by the very fabulous Prima Ribbonistas!  With the 2011-2012 team nearing it's end, I thought it would be nice to highlight each designer's work over the past year.  So, I went ahead and asked each Prima Ribbonista to select their favorite May Arts projects.  Every day this week, I am going to share those projects with you. 

 

Now…of course there's a giveaway to go along with this very special week!   On Friday, I will select one person to win 3 rolls of May Arts Ribbonyour choice!  All you have to do to enter to win is post plenty of comments every day this week!  

 

Without further delay here is our first group of Prima Ribbonistas…

I have enjoyed every moment of my time here as a May Arts Ribbonista this past year!  I have chosen these three projects to share with you as some of my favorites.  It was really hard to choose, however, as I found that I really put my all into my May Arts projects and there are so many that have turned into faves!  

I chose the shoelaces because, while super simple, I have kept these in and people love them!  It's just a fun project to do and a great way to show your personal style!  

I chose my Stampendous! frame because it just turned out so neat!  This is the first time I had tried using embossing powder on something like this and I just loved the results!  Definitely a cool technique!  And…how can you not just fall in love with those gorgeous ribbon flowers from May Arts?  Love those!!!  

Finally, I share one of my several dolls made with May Arts ribbon.  This one is Velencia.  I loved her creamsicle inspiration and her soft demeanor!  She was truly a joy to create!  Thank you for visiting my projects here on the May Arts blog over the past year!  You guys are such a fabulous audience!  Thank you!

 

Wow…this was harder than I thought it was going to be!  Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to represent May Arts Ribbon, Ribbon Lady!  Going back brought so many memories.
 
 
I chose the Velvet Bookmarks because I love May Arts velvet and how easily this beautiful ribbon transformed into beautiful, elegant gifts with just a few beads and supplies.
 
 
The Halloween Sssssnakes were so much fun to create!  The kids loved them standing guard over the candy on Halloween night.
 
 
 
I chose the altered tin and baby shoes because I love to "upcycle" ordinary items into special "Thrifty Gifts".  The variety of May Arts Ribbons makes gift giving fun and inexpensive.
 
These cards are so me. The butterfly card CAS design make my heart flutter. I just love clean design.
 
The flower card cheerful colors is so refreshing and I love it even more when Lori Whitlock who designed the flower chose this card to be showcased on her blog.
 
And last but not least, the butterfly card reflecting my love of colors (this card use all my favorite colors) and butterflies. It just so springy & girly as well. 🙂
 
 
 
Now start posting some Prima Ribbonista love, please! 🙂

xoxo!

    Jingles Stampendous Frame and Charlene's Bookmarks top my list of all these wonderful projects!  The Stampendous Frame remineded me of the old time needlework samplers ladies used to do.  And I just love anything with beads and sparkle that would make a great, little gift.  I was just on the May Arts site trying to figure out what I could afford this month!  Sorry, but I am going to wait to see if I win!  Three rolls !?!  I'd be in heaven!  Your silk ribbon used in my bows on  my cards always get applause at my website….

    swapping out the shoe laces for ribbon is a great idea.   The ssssnakes are really cute.  Have to try that one at Halloween.   Making a dress out of the ribbon for the doll was great also.    So many good ideas and so little time.
