Paw Prints

Hi Everyone
Wendy L (Spanish Crafter) here with today Inspiration.

I made a little canvas bag using the Grosgrain Paw Print ribbon.
I use the little bag to hold my dogs poop bags (before they are used, of course )
I attach it to his lead when we go for walks, saves having them stuffed in my pockets, especially as it is getting hotter here, so not wearing a jacket.

I also made a Thank you card to give to the Rescue Centre where we got our dog from.

There is a massive selection of Grosgrain ribbon for every occasion.
Pop over to the website to take a peak.

Good Morning
A quick post from me as we are away today for afew days.

I am in a swap group and my last one was to decorate Paper clips.
An ideal way to use small pieces of ribbon and I had these with script on, just perfect.

When you miss gift wrap...

When you miss gift wrap...
and you just have brown paper, you could add ribbons and your present is more fun!

Good for books, boxes...
I weaved different sizes and matched ribbons for it.

I used  poppies ribbon, mini heart ribbons and swiss dots ribbons. A big bow is good too!

Cut a Slice Card using Bake Ribbons

Good Morning Everyone! 

Today I am sharing a Design Team card for Crafty Ribbons I made with ribbons from the Bake Ribbons Collection. I used: Cake Slice Large, Cake Slice Small and Cut a Slice Cinnamon.

On the Design Team facebook group we have been chatting about a new die set by John Next Door which is for ribbon threading. It sounded fab and so I decided to treat myself to the dies. It took some working out in my head how I wanted to use them and which ribbons would work but I'm so happy with them!

It was very easy to thread the ribbon once I die cut and I love how I've made my card all about the beautiful ribbon!

To finish my card I added a bow and some gems and pearls to act like sprinkles on top of the cakes!!!

Thanks for looking,

Poppy Field Hoop

Hello to all our ribbon friends.
Ali here today to share with you one of our new kits.

I love playing with ribbon, creating different textures, seeing what ribbon will do!

These little poppies are made from sheer ribbon.
I combined them with our exclusive poppy ribbon and French linen fabric to give that vintage feel. 
Framing them in a wooden hoop finished the kit.

Why not have a play, you can find the kit here 

Have a great day

Organza Finishing Touch

Hi there, Laura here today to share a card using organza ribbon available from Crafty Ribbons.  I love that there are so many colours to choose from - always one to match your project!

I watercoloured a stamp from Concord and 9th with my Daniel Smith watercolours.

Once that was dry I trimmed it and wrapped my ribbon around three times.  I backed it with foam to give dimension to the card (the foam also helps keep the ribbon in place) and glued it to my card base.  I then tied a little bow on the ribbon on the front of the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
