Wonderful You | Scrapbook page

Hi there, Laura here today with a scrapbook page.

I started out wanting to use my new Distress Oxide ink pad.  I pulled out a stamp and some watercolour paper and had a good play!

I liked the results so I gathered some supplies to match the background - a few papers, some stickers and sequins, bits and bobs from the June Lottie Loves Paper kit and ribbon.

Nothing made it on to the layout if it wasn't white or mint.

I sat my title on a ruffle of white organza ribbon - it adds such fab texture and height to the page.

I also added some Swiss Dot Grosgrain and a little heart tab made from the exclusive Wedding Owls ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!

Washi tape and Crafty Ribbons

Hi! I'd like you to show how you can combine
washitape and ribbons and make cute cards 
good to-go for any ocasion. On this first card I 
used the left-over piece after a die cut and 
placed on top of a yellow piece of cardstock where
I had put layers of matching washitape. Goes
well with dotted ribbons

Next card is smaller but I use the same tecnique
taking advantage of the left-over when cutting a
die. Only here I combines a ribbon from the animal
cuties ribbons with the washi tape in the middle and
then decorated with a fuchsia and white saddle

This last card has only washi tape in the body 
and ribbon only for decoration together with 
some flowers and a heart needle. 

Thanks for visiting and welcome back!

Team Ribbons

Team Ribbons showing off their ribbon streamers in the recent Gold Hill Cycle ride for charity.

We attached lengths of ribbons to pieces of elastic.
The ribbon colours had to match Mollies Sky bike!

The elastic was then sewn to form a circle, they simply slipped over the handle bars.

It was great seeing the ribbons being caught by the wind.

We may not have been the first over the finish line, but we did have the best dressed bikes!

paper this time; why don't you try it out?

A cosy nest for wubby

Some up cycling today! With cherry tomatoes box, I made this special nest for little wubbies I knit and crochet sometimes ago.

I used baby blue dots ribbon, satin ribbon, and a bygone collection.

A swiss dot ribbon, a grosgrain ribbon, a Morlaix cotton lace. Do you that you could put a colour's name in search motor on website? It is a good way to find what you would like. (also good with any name!)

I have a giveaway on my blog if you want to be in. Just let a comment on my blog HERE. (voucher, crochet and illustration I made)
Hoping you like these littles nests. Which one do you prefer?

Have a lovely day,

Lighthouse Bookmark

Hi Folks!  Laura here today with a quick nautical bookmark...

I took two lengths of  By The Sea Lighthouse ribbon and sewed them back to back turning the ends under neatly.  I then grabbed some garden twine and found a tutorial to make a monkey's fist knot.  I work better with visual instructions so I found a video to follow along with.

I attached this at the bottom and was finished.  I think it has quite a big impact for something that took very little work!

Thanks for looking!

Our Bias binding was just perfect for the job, lovely colours to choose from and only 25p a mtr.
Find them all here

Mollie is one very happy little girl.

As always Crafty Ribbons loves to see ribbon used in scrapbooking and Laura has this layout to share... hopefully to inspire you to have a go!

Scrapbooking needn't be expensive or complicated.  This page is made with the front cover of a catalogue, a few sequins, some tissue paper and ribbon.

The title is cut from the catalogue as is the patterned paper.

The ribbon forms a layer beneath the photo adding depth, texture and interest.  There is also a small piece of ribbon looped around a paper clip used as an embellishment.

You can find the ribbon Laura used here:  Cotton ribbon and 3mm grosgrain ribbon.

And we hope to see your scrapbook creations over in the For The Love Of Pretty Paper Facebook group, or on Instagram with the hashtag #uksaNSDcut over the next week.

My second ever flip book

This is a flip book I made using pink, grey
and black colours. The theme was music:

To close it I used the 9 mm music ribbon (above)
and inside I put a broader ribbon (25 mm wide)
 to serve as a holder for the green tag. 

Have you seen this heart string? That used
to be at Crafty Ribbons but is out of stock.
If you have something similar; why not use 
it instead of a ribbon wrapping a gift!

There's more information at my blog.
