Ribbons and Buttons Blog Hop

Welcome to Ribbons & Buttons Blog Hop!

Hello my faithful followers! I would like to welcome each of you to my blog. Today, we have a fun hop for you that will be filled with fun and creative projects designed to inspire you what you can create with ribbon and buttons. My good blogger friend Julie K from A Little Bit of Bling created a fun hop to promote some amazing Ribbon that she has at her 3 Girl Jam Shop. And let me tell you, they have some amazing colors of ribbon. So what are you waiting for, be sure to check out her shop and see what you like. 

Now, if you have come from Gloria, then your in the right place, if not, I would love for you to start from the beginning with our hostest with the mostest: Julie K.

Before I begin to showcase my project for the hop, I would like to thank Julie K. for having me be part of her hop. I truly feel honored to be a guest designer of her blog hop. I truly love the amazing ribbon she has sent me to play with. So without further ado, lets begin.

The first card I created was a card for the month of October since it is Harvest/Halloween Time. She has given me two colors of ribbon: Harvest Orange and Sunflower. I decided to go with Harvest Orange for my card.

3 Girl Jam Ribbon: Harvest Orange
Recollection Embellishment: Pumpkins
Recollections Embellishment: Black Creepy Tree

The second project I made is a Christmas Layout because I received two colors that go perfect with this holiday. They were Mistletoe Green Ribbon and Holly Berry Ribbon. I wanted to create a layout that describes when family gather around the decorated tree and open presents. I used the ribbon to decorate the paper as if it were a gift.
