Winter wishes

I send you all my warmest winter wishes to you all. What best that a robin as messenger for it! I have heard of very powerful messages by it from Scotland.
It stayed a long time after my son made his demand and my very good friend thought it was his father in law who came to approuve it. I never saw him crying as he did when I told him this story. As a french girl, I didn't know about this embodiment. Now, I look for signs.

So I made this card for my children who married in september as a symbol of a long life walking along together.

The new robin collection ribbon was perfect for this special card.

Have you some stories about robin? I am ready to hear you.

Hello Winter | Mixed Media Tag

Sarah here today with a Festive Mixed Media tag using some of the Lace and Seam Binding over in the Crafty Ribbons Shop.

For my tag base I added some Snowflake Paste and Distress Oxides for some colour and texture to build my layers on.

Over the dried tag base I added a paper doily cut in two and some tulle to add my embellishments over the top.

I layered my lace at the bottom of my tag and added a fussy cut title over the top. Using the same paper I fussy cut a mug and added it further up the tag.

For the tie on my tag I chose two colours of seam binding and knotted them through the top. I added more embellishments and flowers to the tag and some sequins as a finishing touch.

You can watch the full process in my video here.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Crafty Day!

Good morning, Margreet here.
This time I created a circle easel card to showcase this fab robin ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
You can find it HERE.
 I used an image from Syta van Gelderen, put a 'wooden' wrench from Mariannne Design around it and decorated with some branches on which I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I adhered the beautiful ribbon on the design paper of the lower part, so it can be used to stop the upper part.
Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Fun Gift collection

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you are well :) I am here with a collection towards christmas gifts using our Winter fun ribbon as the centre piece! I plan to try to make more of my gift wrap this year because I think it really makes your gifts pop!

Hi snowman!

Have you seen the new winter fun collection from Crafty Ribbons? It is so cute for children but also for a little older. 

You can do as mine easily with children. Two white circles cut or punched, some buttons, a ribbon let it snow as a scarf and a pen to add what they want (smile, arms, snowflakes...)

Now I need to make an advent calendar !!! You can order the advent kit or the advent numbers. You have just to choose...

Let's have fun and craft your christmas!

Tis The Season

Sarah here with my project for this weeks Winter Fun ribbon release.

 I really enjoyed making this layout of my boy last Christmas opening his presents. The ribbons matched perfectly with the gift bag in the corner of the photo and I chose papers and embellishments that worked around that too.

To make the ribbon stand out I used black cardstock and added white paper paste with splashes of blue and green Distress Oxides for a touch of colour.

 I layered lots of papers under my photo and added the ribbon amongst the layers. I used pops of red and blue to match in with the photo and ribbon.

I found an ephemera pack from my stash with a cute penguin and added a few more festive pieces as well around the photo cluster. Using the vertical ribbon I added a embellishment to the top of my page.

As a finishing touch I added some red sequins dotted around the page and some word stickers around the photo.
You can watch how I created this layout in the video linked here.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Crafty Day :)
