A layout with a cupcake

Sarah here with my first design team project. I used the lovely cupcake ribbon as my inspiration for the layout.

I weaved some seam binding ribbon around the edge of my cupcake diecut in pastel yellow and green, which matched my title perfectly.
Some sweet ric rac ribbon finished the layout off nicely.
You can find all the ribbons in the shop.

Thanks for stopping by

Scrapping with ribbon...

Hi folks, Laura here today.  Since I made this layout I have had half a stamped and painted image sat on my desk.  As you know, I don't like to throw anything away, so I designed this layout around it!


My only other criteria was 'use lots of ribbon!' and I managed to sneak some lace and sequins in too - life is hard!!


You an get your hands on the ribbons here: hearts and dots and you can find the teal ribbon and lilac lace on the Crafty Ribbons show stand - yes it is nearly show time again.


Thanks for looking!

Don't waste your ends!

Hi there. Laura here today.

Does anyone else get their lengths wrong when wrapping a present and end up trimming 3 or 4 inches off the ends of ribbon instead of the preferred half an inch?  I do ALL THE TIME!!


But I hate waste so I usually add them to a tag.  This way you get no waste and a pretty accessory for your beautifully wrapped parcel!  Here I've used 15mm Micro Dots in Shocking Pink as it was the perfect match to my paper.

Sewn Silk Lilacs

Hi guys, Laura here today.

There seems to be a real trend for ribbon embroidered flowers at the moment.  I have no experience in this but thouoght I'd try to combine it with my love of scrapbooking.  In hindsight I should have learnt the art of ribbon embroidery first before attempting to do it on cardstock and over a photo.  Hindsight is a wonderful thing!


Any how it turned out OK in the end.  The photo is of blooms way past their best so I added some brown watercolour to my silk ribbon flowers to make it look like they had turned too.


You can find some ribbon embroidery kits (with good clear instructions) here and a huge stash of silk ribbons here.  I have used pieces from a scrap bag which is a great way to get started.


Despite the trickyness and frustration it is safe to say I will be trying this again.  I'll be stocking up on silk ribbon too, as they are lovely to work with!

Ribbon Page Markers


Hi!  Laura here today with a quick and simple way to jazz up your planner.  I also like to use mine as bookmarks...

You will need paperclips, ribbon and glue dots - that is all!


Take about 4-5 inches of your chosen ribbon and feed it through the paperclip.  Ease the center in on itself and fold in half.  Secure with a glue dot.  Done!
