Snoopy Page Marker

Hi Guys!  Laura here today sharing this little bookmark...

It is really simple to make.  Take one length of ribbon - mine is roughly 10cm.  Turn the raw edges under so there is no fraying.  Add two pieces of magnetic tape, one at each end on the reverse side of the ribbon.  That's it!

The ribbon folds over a page in your book, or in this case my planner, and you have your page marked.

I've used Snoopy ribbon which you can find here!

Thanks for looking,

Seam Binding

Hi All!  Laura here today.

I do love to work with seam binding.  There are so many ways to use it.  For this layout I simply used my sewing machine to join a few off cuts together...

Which gives a rather fun string of bunting.  Add in a few pieces of reclaimed packaging, a tiny paperclip, some tulle, enamel stars and a cameo cut and you have yourself a sweet layout!

I had a tonne of notes for this photo so rather than put it all on the front and loose the white space I washi taped a note on the back of the page.  A little piece of memory tucked away for someone to find one day - or not, as the case may be, and I'm totally OK with that!

You can find seam binding in Crafty Ribbons store - only 124 colours to choose from!!

Thanks for stopping by!

A touch of red

Hello ribbon lovers! :) Cebelica here today. With Valentine's day just around the corner I thought I'd share a "love" card with you this time.

At Crafty ribbons store you can find lots of gorgeous ribbons that are suitable for the most romantic holiday of the year, but I decided to use poppy red - single heart ribbon. I thought it was perfect for my card. It's beautiful, isn't it? But as I said, there are maaany more to choose from, so be sure to browse around. ;)

Have a wonderful day! xx
