Haven't been doing nearly enough crafting lately but here are a few things from past days!
I made these cards for Dee's ribbon challenge over at the Turtle mb:
Sorry for the terrible pic ( don't you just love the fancy border with the seagulls in my downstairs bathroom- I really need to change that!!!). Here is a close up
Really simple stuff, just some ribbon weaving, a little cuttlebug embossing, stamped the sentiment and popped it onto a matting! I love the little mug! It is from a set of push pins I got at the dollar store a few years ago. I had always meant to scrap with it but couldn't find the right project. I really like it on the card!
Well, the ribbon project brought to light a very scary situation...the state of my ribbon storage! My ribbon was a snarled mess! I had thought of getting one of those handy dandy ribbon organizing bags, but I am cheap ( and have no spending money) so I thought I could make my own! I found this nifty bag at Liquidation World in London when I was there a few months ago. It looked perfect for this project!
I promptly forgot about my project and the bag sat in the corner of my scrapping space for a while...until I actually had to use some ribbon! I sat down the other night with my handy dandy Silent Setter ( to think I almost got rid of that when I got my crop a dile!) and within in 10 min I had a bag that looked kinda like swiss cheese! The hardest part is rolling up all of my ribbon and loading it in the bag!
Here is the finished product
A close up
I am proud of myself- can you tell!
I think I need to attack my poor photo results now that I can't photograph outside any more ( as impressive as my seagull papered bathroom is, I am not thrilled with the photographic results!)
I found a link a while ago instructing on how to make your own light box. I recommended it to another scrapping blogger ( Carla- she is awesome!!! check her blog out http://moralia.wordpress.com/) and she is going to try it! I think I should too!
Here is the link for the instructions
I am going to try to get this done on the weekend!
Well, I'm off! I see the KWerner design blog has a new colour inspiration posted so I am going to check it out!
Have a wonderful day all!
