Just click on this image to take you to the store so you can get your kit before they are all gone.

This kit with the beautiful browns and cream colours came at the perfect time for me.
All of the pages that I will be showing you are 8×8 layouts for my Mother’s album for her 80th birthday.


A photo from my parents 50th anniversary. The sheer ribbon added that touch of elegance.


On this page I  machine stitched the ribbon to the layout to hang my banner from.


The Websters paper was perfect to create a page about my Mom being a baker. I used the cute pompom trim here.


I used some old Making Memories paper that went perfectly with the brown trim and ribbon.


On this page with a photo of my Mom as a baby adding the sheer cream ribbons gave it that delicate feel.


I love this picture of my mother from last Mother’s Day! The heart on this page is created from the kit ribbons.


My last project is an altered pillowbox that showcases the lush velvet ribbon.

This is a faux embroided wall hanging.  I traced around an S chipboard letter to look like stitches and added the threaded needle to make it seem more realistic.  Making Memories Paper

This is the pull out from my son’s Highlights magazine.  I added a cover and ring to make it more durable for my son to look through. Colorbok cardstock, Bazzill Sizzix Flowers, Making Memories Paper, Basic Grey alpha stickers.

Just a cute little journaling tag.  Tons of paper piecing, stickles, and diamond glaze on this one!  DCWV, Love Elsie, American Crafts Papers.  Autumn Leaves, Kolette Hall, & JRL Designs Stamps with Stazon.

Christmas Journaling Tag.  American Crafts & Paper Studio Papers. 7 Gypsies Tag.  Hobby Lobby Stamp inked with Stazon and glittered up in Stickles.

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I do love tags, but find them outdated at times.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

This week’s Spotlight Special at Savvy n Sassy features the Pink Paislee papers and Pink Paislee stamps. These items will be on special in the store from July 11th -17th.

I absolutely adore Pink Paislee.  I used the Sweet Cakes blue swirled heart patterned paper on my layout below, Young Love.  I feel Pink Paislee adds a happy, carefree touch to anything you create.

Pink Paislee Stamps are perfect if you like to paper piece your images as I did below with the Vintage Pop rocket stamp.

This was a great kit to work with. I  used the white lace with some Glimmer Mist to alter to the color I desired. I  also  used the turquoise loop braid, this color is fabulous!
