Frida skull

Hi everyone!
Somedays over the rainbow... 
No, my mind is upside down! It is the worst moment of the year with so many things to do in all directions but also creative too.

With some french creative friends, we made a team for a special challenge and since a month we create a lot of DIY. We chose "Rendez-vous in latin America" theme.
How to mix challenge, rota, partnership...? My head is full and I remember this skull from Eye Connected Crafts!

I laced some gingham ribbons together for teeth,

Add some paper flowers,

And some doodles.

If we have a look to Coco, maybe Frida could be like this!

If we want to have a look to my team's DIY, you are welcome to like them until 24th june. Cross your fingers for me. We 'll hope to win something...

Fun Card using Ribbon to Create a Lion's Mane

Good Morning Everyone! 

Today I am sharing a fun card I have made for my Design Team project for Crafty Ribbons. I have used the ribbons from the Butterfly Ribbon Pack to create the mane for my stamped lion.

The stamps are Lily the Lion from Imagine Design Create and are super cute, perfect for this project!

I had a lot of fun making this one, I just hand stitched the ribbon to the card and used foam pads to adhere the face to the ribbon mane.

Thanks for looking,

More caravan fun....

Hello ribbon fans
Ali here today sharing one of my kits.

I love working with felt, our kits all use wool felt, so really lovely to handle.
This is one of our caravan charm keying kits.

We had a delivery of new assorted buttons and as I opened up the bag, I saw these caravan wheels!
That was it, I started playing with felt, ribbons and buttons and our Caravan kit was born.

The little towbar is made using our Exclusive sewing ribbon.
Purple and red colours - Sew very happy
Blue and pink colours - Sew a little happiness 

The kits come with a silver coloured keyring, so use them as bag charms or your caravan keys.
Find them here

Hope you all have a great weekend, have fun

Morning guys !!

Been doing a bit of fun cross stitching. As soon as I saw these cute patterns in The World of Cross Stitching magazine I knew they would go so well with the Summer Festival ribbon collection !! 

Made a slight change to the caravan sign, did you notice ??

Gift Wrapping with a Sparkly Twist!

Hi there, Laura here again.

I love wrapping presents more than I love unwrapping them.  I had this crazy idea to make a sequin shaker pocket window in some wrapping.  I measured out my paper and picked a spot that would give a tantalising glimpse but not give anything away... I moved over to my craft desk and carefully cut the dinosaur out with a craft knife.

I recycled a piece of craft packaging filling it with a spoonful of star sequins and sealing the opening with double-sided tape.  I ran some glue around the edge of the cut out dinosaur on the inside on the paper and attached the pocket of sequins.

Then I wrapped the present and finished it off with two contrasting ribbons.  You can find the range of satin ribbons here and the birthday ribbons here.

Thanks for looking!
