Okay, so I am a tomboy scrapper.  The great part about this ribbon kit is that it can be super girly, masculine, or neutral.

I never really been into sheer ribbons until I actually started to play and create with them.  They make nice, subtle background strips and “leaf” accents as I did on my gnome card above.

I do love tags, but find them outdated at times.  At the same time, a tag just doesn’t feel right without a ribbon topper.  Sheer ribbon works again, by accenting my color choices here, yet still blending in transforming this tag into a more trendier journaling spot.

Pink polka dot ribbon and the dark green velvet ribbon is pure girlyness here on my sparkly lemonade card.

I used the green pom-pom trim ribbon strand to add a little hip and whimsical feel to my thank you card.  As you can see, it is wide enough to place a larger sized brad through the trim.

The Fairy Garden kit just screams out shabby-chic to me.  The pink velvet ribbon is feminine and I love the added texture it brings to projects.

I fell in love with this sleepy fox print I found on IndieFixx, but wasn’t exactly sure how or where I would display it in my home.  I decided to alter a random wooden frame I found in my closet with a nature theme to mimic this print.  I trimmed out the inner frame edge in the dark green velvet.  The neat part about the dark green velvet is that the opposite side of it is a smooth light green.  I love when I tie a bow with the green velvet that it shows both sides and mixes textures.  For a dainty look, I overlayed the green lace trim over the velvet.  If you attempt to do this, I would recommend Zip Dry clear liquid adhesive or something similar with some heavy books placed on top.

I made this mini-book as part of DT Member Ann’s Go Green Challenge.  It is made from 4 toilet paper rolls.

The toilet paper roll is flattened with the end open to create a little slot where you can slip in little tags and extra pictures for this family mini-book.

Thanks for looking! 🙂

Oh what fun I had this month! SNS had a wonderful sponsor, Tin Box Creations, and I was honored to play with TBC‘s Spring Flower Set as well as SNS‘s April Boys n Dirt Kit.

First up I altered this faux leather box. I used Tin Box Creationsdotted flower border stamp from the Spring Flower Set, to stamp on the Olive – White Stitch Ribbon. I also used Mini Olive Ric Rac from the SNS Boys N Dirt Kit too. Other supplies Used: Stash Beads (to spell “Grow Beauty”), Stash flowers, Fancy Pants Rub Ons and Paper Frills.

More details to this box can be found HERE.

On my Altered Tile Project. I stamped the Flower Garden stamp with Staz On ink directly on my once plain tile:) I then stamped the tile with the dotted flower border using Red Staz On Ink then outlining it with Red Stickles. Stash Sticker, Stash Blue Hearts and some awesome Mini Olive Ric Rac, and I was done!. Such a fast and easy project!

On my next project I created my Patterned Paper by using watercolor paints for the background. I then stamped it with TBC’s dotted flower & leaves stamps from the Spring Flower Set. I also “flocked” the dotted flower & Leaves stamps using a flocking kit I purchased from the SNS Store. The particular one I used is sold out, but HERE is a similar one, just different colors:) Once dry I used Frosted Lace Stickles in the center of the flower. The glossy Flower by the “nature” tag was the dotted flower stamped on the backside of cardstock, embossed with a stylus, then sanded and inked and then used diamond glaze on it. I also used Baby Blue Stickles on the Huge Tan Ric Rac from the SNS Boys N Dirt Kit. This LO amazes me that I started out with just a white sheet of cardstock!

More details to this LO can be found HERE.

Next up is an altered Kleenex holder. I used Mini Olive Ric Rac & Oatmeal Grosgrain from the kit. I also used Basic Grey Boxer Patterned paper – Cargo & Basic Grey Boxer stickers from the store. More Details can be found HERE.

I altered an address book too. I used White Twill Tape from the SNS April Boys N Dirt kit. Other products used: Bohemia Barefoot & Dots/Red, Basic Grey Archaic/Rusty & Scenic Route Chipboard.

My next LO is 6 x 12 in size. I used Mini Olive Ric Rac & Oatmeal Grosgrain from the SNS Boys N Dirt kit. I also used Basic Grey Arcaic PP (Timeworn, Rusty, Dirty, Primal), stash stickers and a white pen.

My Last LO is 12 x 12 in size. I used White Twill Tape from the SNS April Boys N Dirt kit, as well as Cloud 9 Design PP (Man’s Best Friend), Fancy Pants PP, a Love Elsie Star, and red Cardstock.

What fun I had this month! Thanks Tin Box Creations and SNS!!
