More Fun with Washi

Spent a little more time playing around with my washi collection.  I needed to restock some of my generic cards: birthdays, thank yous, etc.  This was the easiest way to do several pretty quickly.  All sentiments are from A Muse Studios.

Fun with Washi

So I have a little bit of a washi tape addiction.  Adam (my youngest) is a terrible enabler.  He loves it as well.  He really enjoys crafting with me and it’s an easy to use item for kids.  I needed a bunch of thank you’s, happy birthday’s, etc to build up my stash a bit so I used a simple design.  It was excellent as it used up 3 things I tend to hoard – buttons, flowers and washi tape!  Here are several of the versions I came up with: (all sentiments from A Muse)

Adam had his own version that he stocked up on.  He said his birthday is coming up and he would need thank you’s to send out.  (He even puts a little tape inside the card for extra design.  He was quite proud of that.)

I have some more we did while playing with washi tape for tomorrow!

Watercoloring

I find watercoloring very therapeutic.   I found these cards in a pile of boxes.  I think I stamped them two moves ago.  For some reason, I started working on them the other day and it was so relaxing.

I believe the images are Penny Black, but I stamped these at least four years ago, so I honestly don’t even know.  I used a myriad of colors with a niji waterbrush on Fabriano cardstock.  Some I finished off with ribbon and some I left alone.  I had also stamped the envelopes as well.

I have actually been crafting more lately so I should have several new things to show this week as well as a new Top Ten Font list.

RCC88 – Anything Goes!

Hey there everyone!  It’s the last challenge of 2013!  Just a quick announcement before we get to this month’s challenge.  We will be taking a “time-out” at the store as of January 1, 2014.


There have been some monumental changes in our household this past month, so after careful deliberation, we have decided to close down the Ribbon Carousel store as we face these new challenges and blessings.  We’ll still have the blog challenges. We just won’t have any products that we’ll be selling.  Sooooo…..if you’ve ever want a Ribbon Carousel, be sure to pick one up before they sell out!

Now, on to this month’s challenge.  With all of the swirling excitement as we get ready for a brand new year, we thought it best to make this months challenge an easy one…sooooo…..

ANYTHING GOES!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!

Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into FOUR teams. Each week you will see fresh projects for this month’s challenge!


There are only three (3) rules you must follow to be eligible for the prize:

  1. You MUST use ribbon, twine, thread, washi tape or anything that comes on a spool on your creation
  2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month.
  3. You must add a NEW project to the inlinkz below and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery. (Unfortunately, we’ve had participants who would have won the challenge, but they didn’t do a direct link to their blog and I couldn’t find their creation!)

Check out some crafty eye candy from our talented Crewmates for a little inspiration before you link up your project at the bottom of this post!

I have made these many times – in fact, you can find the tutorial {HERE}.  I use the metal mailboxes that can often be found at Target’s dollar spot (they have them at Michaels as well, but I do not know if they are identical in size for tutorial purposes.) I think they are adorable and can be used for so many different things.  I had a few gifts I needed to make up for people and this worked for what I had in mind.  Enjoy!

Stop by The Ribbon Carousel blog for more inspiration and enter your own creation to win a fabulous carousel of your own!!

And be sure to check out my Stamps For Sale - I’m sure you need some of them!!  I recently added several new sets to the list, be sure to look for them!

Enjoy!

Ribbon Carousel Cyber Monday Sale!

Ribbon Carousel Holiday Blog Hop!

Hey everyone! We’ve got such a treat in store for you this weekend! To celebrate all of those beautiful Ribbon Carousels being used around the world (yes, we’ve shipped Carousels to 27 countries now!) to keep ribbon, twine, washi tapes and spooled items tidy, we’ll be hopping around our amazing Crewmates blogs for the next 4 days showing you all of the beautiful and creative ways that our designers use THEIR Ribbon Carousels!

I love my Ribbon Carousel!  I really needed something for my growing collection of washi tape.  It was all lined up on my table and was constantly rolling around.  This works so well and it holds SO much!  I put all my washi tape on and still had plenty of room left for some extra ribbon!

Would you like to win your very own Ribbon Carousel? Here is what you need to do: Visit the Designer’s blogs that are participating in each day of the blog hop and comment on their posts as you go. One of the Crewmate’s Holiday blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Crewmate’s Holiday Blog Hop post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more Crewmate Blogs you comment on, the better your chances are of winning your very own Ribbon Carousel! The Blog Hop will be open until 11:59 PM Eastern Time Monday, November 25th with the winners being announced Tuesday morning on the Ribbon Carousel Blog.

Already have a Ribbon Carousel? Share a photo of YOUR Ribbon Carousel on our FaceBook page OR email it to info@ribboncarousel.com, and we’ll share it for you! You’ll be in special drawing for your choice of a Ribbon Carousel or 4 packages of spools!
