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

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!

Tying the knot #2

So there's a second couple among our friends 
getting married tomorrow and we made them
also an easel card but in different colours. 
Papers and also from Basic Grey. 

I made the card above and Amanda the card below. 
We both used the velvet bling ribbon in pink. I used
the Wedding Owl white ribbon while Amanda 
preferred the Congratulation ribbon in pink.  

We hope bride and groom will be 
happy with their cards!

almost identical card:

Ribbons used:

vintage lace

Vintage Lace

Hi everyone. Louise here and it's so great tp be back with a new project.

I got the most gorgeous lace bundle this month from Crafty Ribbons and wanted to pair them with some of the lovely ribbons.

I've been working on some masculine projects lately and with Father's day coming soon, decided to give another project a go.

I have also been trying to use my older personal stash and remembered this beautiful box I had so decided to alter it.

I cut up strips to fill the middle panel of various ribbons and laces. Links will be added at the end of this post.

I glued these on using Prima Marketing 3d gloss gel and carefully dried with a heat tool. I then used various ink sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang and Kaisercraft to colour the materials

I then prepared cuts of papers and backed them with folded card to give height and added using the same gel

I added a photo and finished with some embellishments, sticker, waxes on the metal parts and some glitter paste

Christmas in June

Good Morning

Wendy L (Spanish Crafter) here to show you some Christmas Inspiration today.

Lots of ribbon on these two cards
Seam Binding  HERE
Grosgrain Christmas Trees HERE
Grosgrain Christmas words
Heart Buttons HERE

These cards make a great Christmas gift as they have 4 drawers underneath to fill with goodies.

Here is another one, same style but different colours.

I threaded the seam binding through the holes in the buttons
and tied in a simple knot.

Pop along to the shop and see all the ribbons available and some bargains too.

For a cat lover...

I made this card for a cat lover and specially black and white cats. I had two. They were Micou and Sweety.

The cover shows anything except cat of course but it is a folded Z card.

Can you see now?

On the cover, I add a cat silhouette ribbon

Do you like cats or dogs?
I'd rather cats but my son has three dogs and I begin to appreciate them.


ps: May I ask you favour? I am in a creative team for a french challenge and I need all support I can. I would be very pleased if you subscribe my profile Coccinelle Demoiselle on a french makers platform and like my tutorials. I could have a chance to win with my friends. Thank you so much.

Poppy Hair Clip Holder

Hi Folks,  Laura here with a quick hair clip holder.

I've recently had a haircut and I am, apparently, unable to buy just two of something... I must have every colour!  So I needed a way to store these new accessories.

I pulled out some Swiss Dots ribbons in colours to match the Spring Ribbons Poppies and set to work.

I used two barbeque skewers to give the Poppy ribbon some stability and hung lengths of grosgrain between them.  A few stitches here and there to secure things was all it took.  I added some 3mm grosgrain to hang the holder and added a couple of mini bows as a finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by!
