Everyone wants more sweet treats, you had lots of comments Dorothy about your amazing creations yesterday. That's why I think our blog is loved so much. It is not just about what Crafty Ribbons do with ribbons, but what crafters do with our ribbons as well. I hope you all agree.
I have another collection of masterpieces to show you, also sent in by our Challengers. For all the newbies - we hold ribbon Challenges (we have two running at the moment "Sweet Treat" and "Bunny Easter Hop"). We launch a Challenge with a collection of ribbons. The first 15 or so people that reply to the challenge (normally set on a Sunday) will be senT a bundle of ribbon to play with, in return we ask for 2 creations to be posted back to us so that we can showcase them, here on our blog and also display them on our exhibition stands.
This is the promised retake of Claires card, I had not realised that it was an easel card - wow looks good enough to eat! Thanks for the email Claire.
This card has come all the way from Sweden, made by Charlotta, she tells me it is called a cross over card. It looks way too technical for me to make, quite stunning Charlotta.
I love the colours on these cards Charlotta, and the taggie lollipops. You may have noticed that I am into ribbon tags at the mo, so simple to do but very effective. Perfect Charlotta they will be coming to Paris with us next week, I just hope nobody asks how to make them!!!! Your other card has arrived safe and sound and will appear later in the week.
Now this is an unsual idea, a boxed frame of ribbons - wicked. We must be on the same wave length Lucy, I have some small blank canvases tucked away to do some ribbon art on. Mmmmmmm food for thought!
Ooooh this had me intrigued. A ribbon box - what could be inside? It was from Lucy and we know she spends a lot of time in her kitchen playing with icing sugar, and she made the Gingerbread advent for us.......
A box of sweet treats, yummie. Sadly it was Bev's day off when these arrived, and we thought that they may go off......so welll......there were none left for Bev. Oooops!!!!
Everything is ticking along nicely in the warehouse, my proof arrived from the printer for our NEW leaflet - so they should be rolling off the machines today and tomorrow. The January Pack Sale is over, we all hope you are enjoying the bargains, the last order for packs was processed at 23.45 yesterday and the sale ended at midnight, talk about to the line just in time!!
Rachie and I are re-stocking the exhibition stand again today, trying to find room for all the new ribbons - not an easy job.
