For today we have
Working with color families can be a lot of fun, and the new 7/8″ Double Faced Satin in blues and greens and teals are about as fresh and beautiful as they come! For two of my projects, a couple of sets of hair bows and a card I decided to use the different ribbon to define the color schemes of my projects, focusing on using color in predictable patterns. While I absolutely adored the way these colors work with each other, I also wanted to see how I could use them to support a different color scheme in a layout I was working on. One thing is for sure, whether on their own or with other colors, these new ribbons will be a go-to choice in your ribbon collection!
If you’re looking for something cute and helpful then this project is for you. An easy DIY band to keep all your things together and looking good.
The new elastic from May Arts is a true must have. Like no other elastic carried in the store. Let me show you how this line is different and why you need them in your stash.
For my first project with the new adhesive flowers I decided to embellish a box in shabby chic style as I really want to focus on the soft and feminine side of this fabulous trim.
I layered it up with some embellishment and flowers with some HunkyDory Antique Chic Papers.
For my second project , I really wanted to focus an simplicity and yet elegant aspect of this Ribbon . I quickly connected these to my Rhinestones Connectors and made a Head Gear out of it. It is super pretty and looks very sophisticated at the same time.
I absolutely loved working with the new 2″ Grosgrain Horizontal Striped ribbon!! For my first project, I’ve created a little backpack-shaped book for my daughter to use as a sort of year book at the end of this year. The ribbon is the perfect embellishment to create the illusion of straps. I’ve also added a small latch on the front that doubles as a pencil holder. My second project was my first attempt at a zippered pouch! I’ve stitched several layers of ribbon together, and added a small zipper to create a quick and cute pouch ideal for holding pencils and more. I LOVE how it turned out!
For this birthday card I created a rose using 1.5 inch Sheer Spring Floral Print .
This friendship card uses the same 1.5 inch Sheer Spring Floral Print to create whimsy floral picks.
When asked to put the new Frayed Thread ribbon to use, I knew I was going to come up with a pretty Spring Ribbon Wreath. I love the natural look of this frayed thread ribbon, it reminds me of linen, and the pretty colors are perfect for spring projects. It was really easy to use too!
