April 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Ribbon

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Theresa Morrow’s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

This month we are using ribbon.


Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Days to Cherish kit (retired), Designer Ribbon Pink Collection, White Daisy cardstock, Hollyhock cardstock, Designer Ribbon Hollyhock (retired), White Daisy Ricrac, Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Clear Sparkles, and DCWV vellum quote.  Nov. 2011 Page Map.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Silhouette Paper Packet (retired), Bamboo cardstockColonial White Ricrac, Buttercup Ribbon Round Collection (retired), Designer Ribbon Pink Collection, Designer Black Ribbon Collection (retired), Opaques Mocha, and DCWV vellum quotes.  Nov. 2011 Page Map.
