The fun factor is very evident in this ribbon kit!  It coordinates with the Zany Zinnia Rocket Man paper kit & that is how I chose to use the ribbon kit.  Literally a blast! 

The first set of work I created with this kit was a card/layout duo based on Rhea’s own sketches (and challenge) for our Christmas Crop, held earlier in the month.  I seem to run out of birthday cards for little folks.  And, my little folks are often invited to other little folk’s birthday parties.  This robot card will eventually go to some little boy.

The layout is of my youngest little guy, Jonah.  The picture was just waiting on the right products to use, & turns out this ribbon kit was perfect!

For this next layout I chose to use these pictures of my silly boy, at the age of 4, looking inquisitive (as he always is). 

Truly Unique

Lastly, this next one is one of my favorites I think.  This is one of my daughter’s husband with his son.   I had a blast (hmmm….must have been all the rockets haha!) creating this for Shannon’s Shape challenge. 

The ribbon in this kit is versatile enough to be used for the more kidlike layouts & projects as well as adult, elegant pages.  All of the SnS ribbon kits are addictive & fabulous but this one is definitely one of my favorites!

I made this holiday planner to help organize me for the upcoming holidays. I used BG Figgy Pudding paper and stickers throughout and a blank transparency for the cover. I trimmed all the pages with the lace trim from the ZZ – Tis The Season Kit.

I created this layout for one of the great challenges at our online crop.  Monica challenged us to scrap the oldest Christmas photo we could find, and I chose this sweet one from 1959 of my mom and her little sister in the snow. 

I was hoping to mimic the snow on branches idea from the photo and the teal lace from this month’s kit was perfect!  I added some white lace layered on top from the Oct. SnS lace kit and love the way it turned out.

Supplies: Cardstock-Hobby Lobby; Papers-Daisy D’s; DistressInk – Tea Dye; Junkitz flowers; various buttons; acrylic paint and glitter glue (on the flower); Zig writer pen; and SavvynSassy lace

It may be a seasonal kit, but don’t feel like you have to use it all for Christmas-y layouts!  I sure didn’t!  🙂  Here I used the little crocheted lace from the kit to add some softness to this layout.  Also used some brown ric-rac from the store (one of my staples).

Supplies: Cardstock-Hobby Lobby, Michael’s; My Mind’s Eye paper; Heidi Swapp chipboard alphas and ledger journaling spot; Target $1 Spot cork alpha stickers; staples; WM felt ric-rac; SavvynSassy brown ric-rac and crotchet lace

Scallop it!!!!

In thinking of something to share for a technique this month i pondered, i wondered what i’ve learned that i use, actually use OFTEN and i realized i LOVE my corner rounder punches from EK Success that are multi purpose that i can use to create scalloped edges on my layouts, cards and projects.  you’ve seen the precut pieces but here’s a simple way to do your own, on anything you want.

I have these corner rounders in 3 different sizes and use them all but they have to have a removable guard as shown here :


Then holding the punch upside down in your hand so you can see what you are doing, start punching across your paper to create the scalloped edge, lining up the start/finish by looking where the punch will cut (this takes a bit of practice but after a while its so simple and you’ll love it)



You can also take your circle or shape punches to create a lacy style edge, use your imagination.

And the finished product is a fun, easy to do,  border/edge to your project that will impress people who think you’ve used scissors to cut those perfect scallops.  🙂  Enjoy.
