Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Ribbon, Ribbon, who has the ribbon

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Shirley Ross.

July 4 Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart unless noted: Key to My Heart Paper Packet (retired), Juniper ink, Vogue Alphabet Stamp Set, Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Washi Tape (retired), and Bazzill Really Big Brads.

If you’ve been using Close to My Heart for awhile, there is a good chance that you’ve accumulated one of these large rolls of Colonial White Grosgrain Ribbon along the way.  Of course, it will work with any ribbon. :-)  This is a great way to use it up.  I just love making flowers using ribbon with this technique.  All you have to do is make a loop, attach it to a brad, and continue looping until you are finished.  I also used the ribbon for the number 4 in my title.  It’s a good thing we are using our stash for this because as I was looking for a letter set to stamp the title I found the Vogue Stamp Set and went  – wait a minute, that’s one I’ve been wanting!  Here I already had it and didn’t know so I better use it!!  And I do love it!

Now hop on over to Casandra Bennett!

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (S)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter S. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their S element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda Norman – Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Nancy Berdanier dancin’ in the rain then you’re on the right track!

Family Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sweet Home Paper Packet (retired) and Sweet Home Stickease (retired).
Sketches from My Little Sketch Book and 52 Sketches 52 Weeks.

I used the Sweet Home Paper Packet and Stickease for the letter S.  I just love the Stickease by Close to My Heart.  They are cardstock stickers so they have a nice thickness and they coordinate with the paper packets.  They make it very quick and easy to finish a layout.  You can leave them as is, add some dimension with popup dots, or embellish them with glitter, buttonssparkles, etc.

This is your final stop.  I hope you have enjoyed the hop.  Join us again next Saturday, September 27 for the letter T!
