Ribbon Page Markers


Hi!  Laura here today with a quick and simple way to jazz up your planner.  I also like to use mine as bookmarks...

You will need paperclips, ribbon and glue dots - that is all!


Take about 4-5 inches of your chosen ribbon and feed it through the paperclip.  Ease the center in on itself and fold in half.  Secure with a glue dot.  Done!

I've used some Bee ribbon from the Gnomes And More collection and Ice Cream ribbon from the Summer Festival collection.

Thanks for stopping by!

Chocolate, ice cream and butterflies


Invited to eat? Want to make a card to the hostess?
Here I made three cards to inspire you; first one out
with ribbons you remember; cupcake ribbons HERE
and pink text ribbon HERE.


Below:Next one features some ice creams from a die I 
got with Die-cutting Essentials this year. This particilar 
ice cream ribbon in summer colours is out of stock
but there are several equally nice ribbons HERE.


Below I used my last piece of the purple thin 
butterfly ribbon that feels like felt and I'm afraid
there is no more of this one either. Does it ever
happen to you that you like a ribbon so much you 
always save some for later??


The text on the card above means "Instead of 
a flower" and it's in Swedish. 

Thanks for visiting and welcome back!

Wonderful You | Scrapbook page

Hi there, Laura here today with a scrapbook page.


I started out wanting to use my new Distress Oxide ink pad.  I pulled out a stamp and some watercolour paper and had a good play!


I liked the results so I gathered some supplies to match the background - a few papers, some stickers and sequins, bits and bobs from the June Lottie Loves Paper kit and ribbon.


Nothing made it on to the layout if it wasn't white or mint.


I sat my title on a ruffle of white organza ribbon - it adds such fab texture and height to the page.


I also added some Swiss Dot Grosgrain and a little heart tab made from the exclusive Wedding Owls ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Washi tape and Crafty Ribbons


Hi! I'd like you to show how you can combine
washitape and ribbons and make cute cards 
good to-go for any ocasion. On this first card I 
used the left-over piece after a die cut and 
placed on top of a yellow piece of cardstock where
I had put layers of matching washitape. Goes
well with dotted ribbons


Next card is smaller but I use the same tecnique
taking advantage of the left-over when cutting a
die. Only here I combines a ribbon from the animal
cuties ribbons with the washi tape in the middle and
then decorated with a fuchsia and white saddle


This last card has only washi tape in the body 
and ribbon only for decoration together with 
some flowers and a heart needle. 


Thanks for visiting and welcome back!

Team Ribbons

Team Ribbons showing off their ribbon streamers in the recent Gold Hill Cycle ride for charity.


We attached lengths of ribbons to pieces of elastic.
The ribbon colours had to match Mollies Sky bike!


The elastic was then sewn to form a circle, they simply slipped over the handle bars.


It was great seeing the ribbons being caught by the wind.


We may not have been the first over the finish line, but we did have the best dressed bikes!
