Sentimental Journey – A Vintage Valentine Challenge

Welcome to a brand new Ribbon Challenge!  I just love these challenges!  The talent that I see in them continues to inspire & amaze me.  Which is why I enjoy them so much & take great care in selecting the ribbon for you to work with.

This month, with Valentine’s Day around the corner, the theme was a given.  But I had visions of something soft & romantic; ribbon truly inspired from yesteryear.   Then, the song “Sentimental Journey” came to me & I knew I had my title.   What could inspire a vintage valentine better than a classic tune like this that truly exudes nostalgia?

So without further delay, here is the ribbon you will get to work with:



I will send out 2 yards of each ribbon shown above to each participant.  The design is completely your choice, as long as you use these ribbons and it is a Vintage Valentine theme.  And yes, I want you to use all 4! 

Here are the details:

  • We will provide you with the ribbon shown to work with.
  • You will have approximately one month to complete a Vintage Valentine craft project.  Any craft design will be admissible, as long as you use each ribbon we provide you with.   You are limited only by your own imagination.   **Please note your idea must first be approved by The Ribbon Lady……don’t worry I’m pretty easy going! :)**
  • The number of participants is limited to 25 people.  **Please note the selection process has changed a bit, due to the increasing popularity. The 25 participants will not be selected on a first come first serve basis, but based upon your idea.  So take your time before you send in your email, as you will have about a week to submit it.**
  • One winner will be selected and awarded 4 full spools of ribbon.  Your choice!
  • 10 additional entries will win a prize of 1 full spool of ribbon.  Your choice!
  • To Enter: Email me at [email protected] with your idea & contact information.  If selected, I will mail out your ribbon to work with.   When you have completed your project, forward me a photo with a brief description of your project.   Or, better yet, send a video of your design & I will post it on the blog.
  • Deadline: February 10th, 2012.  Winners will be announced on February 14th, 2012.

Good luck to all!
