Vibrant colours and gingerbread men


How do you feel about some glitter and
vibrant colours? I made a card with several

I also found a great paper with gingerbread men
 to match the ribbons from this new range

Poinsettia and Lace Card

Good Morning! 

Today I am sharing a Poinsettia Christmas Card that uses the lovely Lace Ribbon: Amour Cotton Lace - Love. I think this is perfect for the finishing touches for my special Christmas Cards as it is red and has a sparkle thread running through it! 

I made the inky background using the Distress Oxides in Lucky Clover and Candied Apple. I then stamped the flower onto another inky background and cut out. To finish I used the lovely lace ribbon and added a few sequins.

Thanks for looking,

Hanging Advent

I grabbed the numbers ribbon from the Nisse range and wondered how it could be used in a sewing-free way...

I pasted the back of the ribbon with matte medium (PVA glue will do too!) and allowed to dry before cutting into individual numbers.  This stops the ribbon from fraying.  Then I gathered up 24 little envelopes to hold my advent treats - nothing huge just a chocolate or two.

I used matching colours of 3mm to tie each number to an envelope and then attach it to a string of Christmas tree beads.  Quick and easy, and very effective!

Thanks for looking,

I've thought them to be perfect on the Christmas tree, but you can also use them to adorn you gifts..

This is a wonderful way to you your ribbons till the end: you just need very small pieces to do them.

You will need:

For this decoration I decide to go for a romantic look, so I chose french script ribbons and pastel colors.

Do you know that there is an entire section of French ribbons??

Have fun to create your handmade ornaments, and if you need these ornaments template, please email me at

Advent Countdown/Calendar/Stocking

Hi Folks, Laura here today.

This creation is courtesy of my Mum - I had too many ideas to make so she stepped in, her hand sewing is much better than mine!!

This advent countdown stocking started life as a pillowcase.  Crafty Ribbons' Gingerbread number ribbon is hand sewn to the front and a glass candy cane marker can be moved along each date as you countdown to Christmas.

As it is a pillowcase you can pop 24 small wrapped gifts inside, one to be pulled at random each day.  I love this idea as you are not constrained by the size of the pocket - it's hard to find 24 goodies that are so small!

It can also be used as a stocking on Christmas Eve.  As it is personalised, Father Christmas will know whose it is and filled with the appropriate goodies or lumps of coal!!

If you fancy whipping one up you can grab the ribbons from here and a pillowcase from either the airing cupboard or your local cheapy shop!  Have fun!
