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!

RCC87!!

Hey there!  Welcome to this month’s challenge, which is going to be so easy, you’ll be able to enter almost ANYTHING you make!


You’d think the sky was falling the way I’ve been running around these past few weeks! I’m assuming y’all are too, so we’re going for an “easy, peasy, let’s get everyone crafting” kinda challenge!  November’s celebrations galore include:

  • Diwali/Deepavali, the Hindu New Year
  • Muharram, the Muslim New Year
  • America’s Veteran’s Day
  • America’s Thanksgiving Day
  • Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights

Then of course, there are Birthdays, Anniversaries, and even TGIF counts as a celebration!  Next month is Christmas and then New Years, and I’ve even seen Valentine papers and stamps out already! OH MY!  So whatever YOU are celebrating, please share your creation with us!


This month’s theme is…you guessed it…..

Holidays and Celebrations!


So what prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

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 months 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!)

So – since it’s about Thanksgiving, I thought it was a  great time to do some Thank You’s.   Here is a totally fall colored one to go with Thanksgiving.

Toothfairy Tin

I have made these several times before {HERE} and {HERE}.  This weekend we were babysitting my 6 yo twin niece and nephew and one of them had lost their first tooth this week – so of course we had to make toothfairy tins!  Carrie chose lots of girly pink things while Sam went with some October Afternoon alien paper.  They both picked out everything for their tins and I used stamps from Melanie Muenchinger’s What’s in Your Tin – a retired Gina K set.

The outsides:

And the insides:

I love making these – they are the perfect size to be used for the toothfairy and they are large enough to keep track of easily!

The Avett Brothers

A few word art lyrics I made for friends……

Bring Your Love to Me

Good to You

Die Then Grow

Happy Birthday!

Just a quick post to share the birthday card I made for Matthew this week.  Manly cards are always a little more difficult for me as they do not lend themselves to flowers and ribbon!  I went with the papers from My Mind’s Eye, sentiment and image from Unity Blossom Stackers, and some washi tape from Michaels.

Eat, Drink & Be Scary

I made up a few more cards using that Halloween washi tape I picked up and here is one of them!  Really simple layout – though I did get out the embossing powder.  Which is a huge deal for me cause hate all that mess and the little grains and such.  It’s all done on a shimmer cardstock just the make it a little more girly.  (image and sentiment from A Muse)

RCC86!

Hey everyone!  We are so excited to be starting a new term with most of our amazing designers returning to amaze you with their gorgeous creations!  This month we’re kicking off the beginning of the holiday seasons here in the United States. That being said, if you’re south of the equator, feel free to submit anything for your entry, but be sure to let us know where you live so you’re not disqualified! Now let’s get to this month’s challenge.

For October, let’s see your….

Fall and Halloween creations!

So what prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants! Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carouel Crewmates have divided up into FOUR teams. Each week you will see fresh projects for this months 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, Trinh would have won last month’s challenge, but she didn’t do a direct link to her blog and I couldn’t find her card!)

Adam (my youngest son) and I picked up some cute Halloween washi tape on sale at Michael’s this past week.  So I was fiddling around it and came up with this.  Super easy, super fast card for one of my niece’s!  I like the flag look on cards – though I have a tough time actually working it out.  One of those situations where I am always my own worst critic!  Oh well – I think she will like it!

Adam wanted to make his own card as well – he added a bit of washi tape, but mostly went with some cute spider embellishments he found.

RCC85 – Back to School!

Are you ready for a brand new monthly challenge???

This is the last month with our current DT!!!! So let’s play along and have some fun with them.


Some kiddos have already gone back to school in August, but in September everything is back in full swing! Kids go back to school and mamas get more stamping time!


This month the theme is BACK TO SCHOOL!

So what  prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

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 three rules to be eligible for the prize:

1.  You MUST use ribbon or twine 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.

So I don’t really have any school themed stamps – mostly because I homeschool my kids right now and don’t really have a use for them.  I do have a lot of teacher friends though!  And truthfully, I would just like them to know I am thinking of them as they return to school this year.  Here is my nod to my teacher friends – I am thinking of all of you!

I haven’t been online or in my stamp space much lately as I had PRK this month.  The upside, I no longer need glasses!  The downside, I still don’t see very well yet and I am so sensitive to light!  I cannot look at my computer for very long at all.   But it all gets a little better every day!
