This kit is very down to Earth just like Ann!  I tried using it as main element and as just little add ons and it is one wonderful kit for both of those uses.


On this first sample, the ribbon is playing major roll on the page.  It is all about twisting and intertwining them, just like love!


This page needed a frame, something that in a subtle way will bring your eye to the photos and ground all the elements together and what better use than RIBBON!

thankyou_ppearlsThis card is all about the image, but it needed a little something to transition to the sentiment.  And some ribbon enhanced w/ some cute little sequin flowers was just what it needed.

daisyRibbon can make your card, literally.  On this case there is no card without this flower and no flower without the ribbon.  Think of out of the box ideas to use your scraps of ribbon.
