I was just thinking - this is like Reverse Blog Candy! Instead of posting a comment and winning ribbon, you will all get the ribbon, but you have to USE it and post back!
Some of my ribbons are very wide, some have wild patterns, some have cool textures - you just never know which one I might pick!
There is only one rule: You must use at least part of the piece of ribbon on your card or item of choice. Other than that, it's an open field.
If you want to try this, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your snail-mail address so I can mail you your ribbon. There will be no time limit! To make it easier to find this post to show us what you did, I'll post a link in my right side-bar called Show Us What You Did that will link back to this post.
Sound like fun? I'll play, and I hope you will, too!
Update 04/18/2008: Here's my first two attempts with the ribbon.
This one came together in about 5 minutes after I saw Jen del Muro's SFYTT #6. I had the card stock and ribbon out, and the panels just worked for me. I cut the ribbon in half to get it narrow enough, and I put tape along the back edges so it would stop shredding!
I think I may have used this sentiment once since I got it, but I had it in mind for this layout. I colored it with markers. The Pretties Kit flowers are paired with the Rhinestone square brads (turquoise, of course.)
Sentiment, pretties kit flowers, brads and card stock by SU. Ribbon from my Ribbon Outlet stash.
This was actually the first layout I tried, and it took me a few days, because as usual, I layered the ribbon, then looked at it. And looked at it. Finally, after getting out the Pretties Kit for the second card (above) I took out the half-pearls and it just went together.
Please ignore that really bad embossed sentiment. I had good intentions, but the EP stuck to the whole background, even though I stamped that 24 hours before! What a mess ...
