Ribbon Flair

Posted in cards, ideas, ribbons at 8:43 am by scrapbookdesigns

If you’re anything like us girls here at Scrapbook Designs, you probably find yourself with smallish pieces of ribbons left over from projects.  Too small for anything major, these bits like your paper scraps, sit patiently in a corner of your craft room and don’t get much of a real look in.  Just as you rifle through your supplies you suddenly notice the ribbon offcuts and as the stash has grown, so too has the colour choice.  Suddenly 15 shades of pink appear, 12 splashes of black and white for those next ATC entries are spotted and suddenly that little pile of ribbon scraps doesn’t seem that boring at all!  Apart from adding as extras to your projects, ribbons can also become the focus.  Check out this quick Lisa card which is a great example of how ribbon can be used as a main attraction.


Cut a frame (any size) out of your card front.  Tape you ribbon under the edges of the frame from one side to the other.  If you are using sheer ribbon, as a precaution use double sided tape under and over your ribbon placement for strength. Stick your frame on co-ordinating cardstock.  The card above was a quickie and still gorgeous, but of course there are lots of other bits you could add! A charm dangling from one of the ribbons or knotting, twisting or braiding the ribbons. Oh la la!!! So many ideas……….off you go then!

Terrific Techniques

Posted in Companies We Love, Email Us, Reviews at 8:30 am by scrapbookdesigns

This page is a great example of how you can use products over and over again to create layouts, cards and more with little effort. 


STEP 1.  On a scrap piece of paper place your sheer cut out pieces.  In this layout we used Maya Road Blossoms.  Drop onto the pieces adirondack alcohol inks.  We have used just a few drops of one colour, butterscotch. Place 1 or 2 drops of copper adirondack mixatives over the top to create the marbled effect!

Step 2. Dry brush your cardstock with paint.  We used antique white and mustard seed from the Jo Sonja range.

Step 3. When the paint on your page and blossoms are dry, overstamp flourish stamps with white brillliance ink.  When the ink is dry, move pieces around until you are happy with position and attach.  Simple yet stunning, this background technique can be used over and over again.  Below are the pictures of stock we have put this layout together with, all available from us of course!
