Yes that is the ribbon kit I was playing with in October, loev the colours of these ribbons, they are absolutely lovely!

These are 2 pages I created for a Circle journal, had fun with these ribbons.

Just a page I had fun playing with, I used some older photo and tried my hand at doodling a bit again.

and last but not least these Halloween cards, I really like using Inkadinkadoo stamps set on them.

School’s Out!


What I mean is, this Zany Zinnia Kit, called “School Days”, is now sold out! And I’m not at all surprised. I mean look at it…gorgeous grosgrain, giant ric-rac, cotton lace, stretch lace, and so much more.

For my “Whale of a Time” layout I layered the Columbia Blue with White Stitch over the Wine grosgrain

I also got caught up on a few Christmas cards using the beautiful cream cotton blend lace:



The wine grosgrain was a perfectly simple touch to this quick card I made for a friend who was taking a vacation…

Have you seen the Art Freckles ‘Go Coastal’ Kit??  It’s available on the Art Freckles website right now! It’s a truly gorgeous kit.  All the papers have little glitter to them, and the embellishments co-ordinate so well! (If I do say so myself!)

And check out the matching ribbon kit available in store!  Savvy n Sassy will be providing you with ribbon kits every month to co-ordinate with the Art Freckles kits!

These two make a beautiful partnership!!

Okay, I admit it.  The one color I have the hardest time with is purple.  So I thought I was in for a challenge working with the October Sugarplum Fairies Kit from SavvynSassy.  But it turned out to be not too hard after all.  🙂 

There’s a great variety of types of ribbon and trims in this kit, that you can make work just about everywhere.  And don’t forget the gorgeous Sugarplum Fairies buttons available in the SnS store!  (I have a serious button addiction, y’all!)

Autumn Candle

This is such an incredibly cheap and simple gift to make!  A candle from the dollar store, a rub-on (this one from Basic Grey), and some organza from the Sugarplum Fairies Kit along with some gingham from my stash.


Here’s a great use for those buttons!  I added my journaling around the outside of the layout on scraps of purple cardstock, using staples to attach the pieces to the page. 

Card Assortment

I made these fun cards during SavvynSassy’s online crop, using some sketches (still posted in the forums).  Lots of ribbon and trim from the kit made it onto these.

Altered Monogram

DD LOVES this altered letter in her room.  🙂

School Days Creations

To say that I enjoyed working with this month’s kit would be an understatement…I couldn’t get enough of it!  The chunky rickrack is a fabulous accessory for lending that distressed look,  the burgandy grosgrain makes the most perfect bows, and the lace added perfect texture to my projects!  I created 4 layouts and 3 cards with this kit and still have more of this beautiful ribbon left over.  I think this is one of my favorite kits!
