Spring/Summer 2015 New Release Blog Hop and a giveaway – Winners!


Welcome to our Spring/Summer 2015 New Release Blog Hop! 

New ribbons. My favorite time of year is when we get new ribbons in stock!  New textures, new colors & best of all – new inspiration!   We are so excited about our new releases, that today and tomorrow we are featuring a variety of projects using each of these new beauties…and inspiring you to create with our newest ribbons.

Each Ribbonista has been assigned one new series to play with.  And their challenge was to create different ways to use the same ribbon.  And these fabulous ladies were certainly up for a fun challenge, as you will see.  :-) 


Of course we need a prize, don’t we?  

Here’s the giveaway:

3 prizes of 1 spool each from our new releases.  That’s 3 chances to win!

Everyone loves a new baby and a friend has just had a new baby girl.  May Arts new adhesive hearts ribbon is the perfect accent for everything from clothing and paper to metal.  Be sure to check out my blog to see the surprise on the back of this sweet little onsie!

I made a couple of fun Easter tags with the burlap. I Love how the colored edge coordinates with some of my favorite papers.

For the headband I stitched some of the Sheer Florals on to a piece of Elastic Lace and tucked in some Jumbo leaves and the new Beaded string, for a quick cute headband for a baby photo shoot or even special enough for wedding or other special occasion.

The new String Beads are perfect for really making all of your paper flowers stand out.  I have round in the center of the flowers and also layered them in between some of the petals.  These flowers are now ready to be used for all sorts of projects from wreaths, layouts and cards.

One-inch Solid with Color Band & Stitched Edge (523-1) can go beyond the basics. This ribbon with it’s great body, can hold a shape, be woven into a fabric or even sewn into a fun studded accessory. With 20 color options you be set for any occasion or project.

Same Ribbon - New Uses


Karen Baker

My first project feature the ribbon with the trendy, vintage nautical print. This print is perfect for simple, masculine decor! I took a cleaned, tin can and covered the top portion with the nautical print and added a strip of denim ribbon on the bottom. I combined the two together with a knotted row of thick, burlap twine.

Using Ribbon for Masculine Decor

The following two projects feature how easy this wide, patterned ribbon is to use on greeting cards. I took advantage of the amazing prints and substituted ribbon for patterned paper by simply adhering the ribbon to a card base with double sided adhesive, stamping a sentiment and finishing the card with burlap string bow and knot.
