Seam Binding Groovi

Good Morning

Wendy L (Spanish Crafter) here to show off some Seam binding available HERE.
There are so many colours available that you will always find one to match and it ties into wonderful bows and you can crinkle it too to give it a Shabby Chic look.
I used the Groovi System from Clarity to do the parchment work.
Any odd pieces of parchment left, I punch flowers out to add as and when I need to.

I used the seam binding to add a charm too, as it is fine enough to  pass through the hole.

Russian doll

Good morning!
Margreet here from margreets-scrapcards with a card which I made for my mother's birthday. On 3rd March she has become 92 years old and she collects Russian dolls and items.
I made a centre step card and used the gorgeous Russian doll ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
I have the clear stamps of the Russian dolls for years and coloured them with copics.
My mother loved the card and it has got a place of honour in her closet!

Princess Scrapbook Layout for the Fiskarettes UK Collaboration

Good Morning! 
Today I am sharing my Frozen themed Princess scrapbook page for the Crafty Ribbons and Fiskarettes UK collaboration.

My original post can be found here

I have used the Fiskars Non Stick Micro Tip Scissors to fussy cut the embellishments and the Fiskars Heart Hand Punch to add tiny magical hearts to my daughter's photo, she loves dressing up and this is her Anna costume! 

I've had these papers a while in my stash and knew they would compliment the Pink Sisters Frozen Ribbon beautifully! A selection of fun new ribbons can be found in the Cartoon Crazy Category :)

I added a heart button from the Basics 2 Go - Pastel Heart pack to finish the layout.

Thanks for looking,

Find the Beauty | Scrapbook Layout | Fiskars Collaboration

Sarah here today with a layout for the Fiskars collaboration.

For the background of my layout I wanted to add a flurry of butterflies so I fussy cut some from patterned paper and layered them on top of glittered texture paste.

My photo is of my little boy playing in the garden so I added wood patterned paper as well as lots of flowers and the stones ribbon in a cluster around the photo.

I layered some grass ribbon and lace along the bottom of the page with the photo overlapping slightly on an angle to follow the eye line up the page.

In between my butterflies I added punched mini flowers and Nuvo drops to add a pop of colour.

I finished with some splashes of ink spray and a rose gold embossed title trimmed from black cardstock.

You can check out my process video here and enter the competitions to win Fiskars and Crafty Ribbon goodies over in the facebook groups.

Have a Happy Crafty Day!!



Hi Everyone

Wendy L (Spanish Crafter) here to show you my take and my Fiskars punch and scissors

These scissors are amazing, besides the fact that they fold away for easy storage in my pencilcase, they are very sharp and cut through my ribbon perfectly.

Here is my card made using the Pebble ribbon available in store HERE and all colours of Seam binding are instore too.  I coloured my white seam binding with orange  Promarker .  I used the punch on orange thick paper and added strips.

Flower Power

Hi, Margreet here with my take of the Fiskarettes UK and Crafty Ribbons collaboration.
Scissors can be fold to a minimum (so easy to take away) and very sharp too.
 Here it is unfold.
Fiskars punch with tiny flowers, which matches the oldschool VW van from the Flower Power period so well.
And here's my card using the Camper Van Ribbon from the Summer Festival ribbons.
I used the punch for making flowers in various matching colors. I attached them to the VW vans and beneath the beautiful ribbon I created some bigger flowers out of the punched ones.

Thanks for passing by.

Love, laugh, live

Love, laugh and laugh is always a good credo and this is mine! I could add smile too...

This is a wonderful kit made with patchwork rose ribbon, (exist in blue)

and lace. There is chantilly one.

Add some heart buttons and this the perfect match!

More you can, enjoy your life. Big hugs.
