Scrapbook Layout with Crystal

Friday, September 26, 2014

Hello Ribbons Unlimited Inc. fans !!
It's Crystal here and today I have made a scrapbook page layout and I used the oh so sheer  shimmery beautiful Organdy ribbon in Toffee 2 3/4" wide  from Ribbons Unlimited Inc. 's online store , I did something different for me today I took my layout outside in the sun to take my picture so you can really see the sheen this ribbon has , it will blow you away when you get it home and really see how beautiful it really it , pics sometimes do translate this but I tried my best for you to see it .

I started with black cardstock base and added a sheet of Heartfelt Creations  12 x 12 designer card stock and distressed the edges and tore some places and then ink the edges with Tim Holtz walnut stain ink , my picture I will add later is 4 *6 so I cut my black layer 4 1/4" * 6 1/4 " , my  purple flowers  ( two different shade of purple ) were cuts from the Silhouette store its called Silhouette Online Store 3D Chicago Peace Tea Rose  , I cut them ink the edges in a pearl and the spritz with water and mold them from the back side of the flower on a molding mat I used a 12 mm ball stylus to form them then I set aside and let them dry then after they are dry I layer them up with glue dots  ( I make my own , if you want to know how leave me a commit and I'll show on my Wed post )  , my white flowers are made with fringe scissors cut 1 " strips and fringe cut and roll up smash top down and you have a cool flower , my green leaves are a My Favorite Things die cut called large leafy flourish ,  the silver fern like leaves are from Spellbinders foliage set , I assemble all in place and then spritz with shimmer spray in a purple /blue I make myself  on the flowers and the page to add shimmer  splats. The bow is a four loop  and made with Organdy ribbon in Toffee 2 3/4" wide

Altered Jewelry Organizer by Grace

Friday, September 19, 2014

Hello ribbon friends. One of the things on my “to make” list is a jewelry organizer. I’ve seen various kinds in Pinterest and decided to go with a frame one.  I found a frame that had a nice edge/frame to it at the thrift store and knew that it would be a perfect base for my project. With the help of some grosgrain ribbon fromRibbon’s Unlimited Inc., my project came together in a snap and with lots of personality. Read on to see how I created my frame.

1. First step was to paint the frame. At first I decided to hand paint it with a brush and acrylic paint. But because my frame has many intricate parts, it was hard to give it a good overall coverage. So I bought a small can of spray paint and then painted it brown instead of my original idea of apple green. 

 2. While the paint is drying, I worked on the center of the frame. I measured the inside part of the frame and cut a piece of cardboard to fit.

3. Then I found this chicken wire paper from my stash and adhered it to my cardboard backing. I trimmed off the excess using a craft knife.

 4. Then I laid my ribbon diagonally onto my board and started cutting them at an angle.

5. I repeated the same process with the ribbons going on the opposite direction and cut the trims to my desired length.  

6. Next I laid the ribbons, weaving them through each other to create the cross pattern and then hot glued the ends to the back of the cardboard. 

7. I then adhered the cardboard to the existing frame backing with some more hot glue and it was ready to be used. 

 Here’s some more close up of the project….

Thank you for joining me today and happy creating.

Supplies Used:
#995Grosgrain stripes, Yellow, 3/8”, Ribbons Unlimited Inc.
Frame- Thrift store
Pattern paper- Hambly Screen Prints
Spray paint- Krylon
Others- Cardboard, Hot glue gun

Ribbon Accents for Layouts by Grace

Friday, September 12, 2014

Hello Ribbon friends. Today I’m sharing a layout I created recently with some ribbon accents from Ribbons Unlimited Inc. My favorite part of adding ribbon to my scrapbook pages is finding ways to layer and create dimension with them. With the different widths that Ribbons Unlimited Inc. offers, it was super easy to achieve my goals. Read on to see how I created this scrapbook page….

1. Gather your supplies

2. Trim the grey pattern paper to about 11 ½” square and adhere to the yellow cardstock, centering it. Adhere the pictures. 

3. Add the journaling block on the bottom of the layout, next to the photo. Cut the ends of three different ribbons into a notch and adhere them on the left side of the layout, layering them over each other a little bit. 

4. Add the title using two different sizes of letter stickers. 

5. Add the yellow grosgrain striped ribbon on the bottom of the layout, ruffling it a little bit and attaching it with some machine stitching.  

6. Add other embellishments, layering them over each other. Add some glitter glue to the centers of the butterflies and set aside to dry.

Here’s a few close ups of the scrapbook page…

I hope this inspired you to layer your trims and ribbons on your next scrapbook page.
