RIBBON IS AWESOME!!!

"Sassy"

I made this page about my grandmother's cousin.  When I see this picture all I can think of is "Sassy".  I used Ribbon 2 ways.  The pink flowers are made with  "Silky Crush Ribbon" pieces, in the rose color, all glued together to make these beautiful blooms!!  The buttons on the flowers, the pearls and the "Sassy" tag are all from Melissa Frances

I also did pleated ribbon down the right side.  The ribbon I used is called "Faux Suede Ruffle Edge Ribbon".  It is AMAZING!!  So easy to gather and pleat!  Awesome!


 Next, I made a journal.  The center is left white and blank on purpose, so whoever gets this journal can fill it in themselves!!  I used 5 different types of May Arts Ribbon.  I tried to use it in different ways.  The only ribbon that is NOT May Arts is the ruffled edge on the left.  The ribbon down the left side is May Arts.  It is called "Chenille Center Dot Ribbon" in the color aqua.  The center is so soft!!  The next ribbons I used are called "Chevron Stripes Twill".  I used 2 different colors, blue and green.  The flags are this ribbon, the tie on the right and the 2 strips above and below the tie.  The next ribbon I used is "Double Faced Horizontal Stripe Satin".  I found a wonderful selection of double faced satin ribbon HERE.  Last ribbon I used was the "Ivory Canvas Black and Gold Print" which has many styles, but I used the Bee ribbon, and cut the bee's out!!

I used Kaiser Craft die cuts, Tim Holtz metal pieces and Prima flowers and leaves all along the side and bottom of the journal.  The Green Leaves Ribbon is the leader of the shape along the side.  That ribbon is so beautiful and it is so fluid to move around!  The bird on top is from Melissa Frances as is the button.

Last, I made this really fun Memo Board card!!  
I love French Memo Boards and with this "Fleur de Lis" ribbon and thought this card would be perfect!!  I also used the "Twill Chevron Stripe" again.  This time in tan.  How fun would this card be to give someone!  Just add theater tickets, or a gift card right to the memo board card!

Thanks for visiting!!  Have an awesome day!!
