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I do love tags, but find them outdated at times.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! 🙂

Creating with this yummy May kit is a great way to start your day, just like…….

 Toast N Coffee!

The calm colours of this ribbon kit make it incredibly versatile.  I wanted to do a variation of different projects this month, specifically to show you the versatility.

First up, CARDS.  The cards above I created using Crate Papers ‘Sweet Branch’ collection, Pink Paislee stamps, (new in store), Sassfrass Lass Oliver and Friends stamps (also new in store), and ofcourse, SnS May Toast N Coffee ribbon kit.

Here is a centre piece I made for my mother-in-law for this past Mother’s Day.  (The flowers are actually chocolate coins that I altered!)  Foam inside the basket holds the flowers in place.  A bit of raffia to cover the foam, some ribbon from the Toast N Coffee ribbon kit, and voila!  Easy peasy, lol.

‘In Training’– My husband had brought home a piece of equipement from work to get rid of some old barrels and junk in our backyard… well, there was no way my kids were letting him get away without giving them a ride.  Of course mommy was standing on the sidelines watching nervously!  Do you notice how again the ribbon from Toast N Coffee work so well here on a more masculine layout?  I love that!

For these last few projects, I decided to pull out my Gel-a-tins ‘Wild Things’ stamp set, as well as a stamp from Daisy Bucket Designs.  (Matched up them up with paper from 7 Gypsies.)  The eyeglass container was plain wood when I got it, and I painted it a warm taupe colour to accent the ribbon from the Toast N Coffee kit.  Black Diamond Stickles from Ranger and flowers from Making Memories add the finishing touches.

Now it’s your turn!
