A Music Themed Engagement Card ........

Hi everyone, Lynsey here to share some ribbon inspiration with you today.  I was asked recently to make an engagement card with a music theme.  I was stumped on that one for a moment and then I remembered the gorgeous music ribbon and thought that would be the perfect way to incorporate music into my card!  This is such a versatile ribbon and perfect for so many occasions!

Thanks for stopping by.

A little something makes all the difference

Hiya crafters,

I thought I would show you a card, make from a kit I brought in a sale, that cost me £1.50. By Papermania, from their Bellisima collection. In soft purples and blues its a beautiful card and I only went slightly off the picture on the kit.  What I wanted to show you though, is that a simple White 15mm Sheer Organza Ribbon bow can make such a difference...... If you dont like the White on it then the Crafty Ribbons website category  will show you what is available in 20 other colours, and thats just in the 15mm size!!
The finished result??? A gorgeous feminine card from a teenager upwards thats what.

More details (and photos) are available on my blog

A basket full of roses

Hello everybody! Cebelica here today. I'd like to show you a card that I made recently.

I like the combination of different patterns so I thought this stripe ribbon would look great on the card. I love the dark brown colour of the stripes, but if you fancy brigher colours, there are quite a few of those available in the store as well - check them out here.

For more information about this card please visit my blog.

Have a wonderful day! xx

A Wedding Card ..................

Hi everyone  Lynsey I have a wedding card to share with you today to show off the lovely lace that is available from Crafty Ribbons.  I don't often make wedding cards with Zoo animals on by the way but this was made for a couple who are getting married at a Zoo!    I think the lace is just the perfect finishing touch to a wedding card and gives a lovely elegant finish even if it does feature zoo animals! 

Thanks for stopping by.
