May Arts Ribbon DT Audition/Tutorial (Final Round)

Hello everyone,
I cant tell you how excited and Honored I am to have been chosen among all the participants to participate in the 2nd Round (Final) for May Arts Ribbon Design Team Call. I absolutely LOVE all of May Arts ribbons,laces,trims and so on, and I would LOVE to be a Prima Ribbonista. As many of you know, I absolutely LOVE working with Ribbons,laces,and trims, and use LOTS on all my projects, its one of my favorite embellishments when it comes to crafting anything!
Today's Project is Decorated Lantern
Using May Arts Ribbon to create all my flowers for this floral piece./VIDEO Tutorial at the end of my post
For my project I decided to go a little bit outside of the box. I wanted to show that I can indeed work with ribbon, and create some beautiful flowers using beautiful ribbons, and trims from May Arts Ribbon. For the last year I have been on a floral decorating kick, and thought how fun would it be to make my flowers for the floral arrangement, instead of buying them. FUN!!!!This lantern was designed for my Kitchen. I also will be using more of the Daisy Flowers in a Mini Album, as I thought these would be perfect in one as well.
May Arts Ribbons Used: all are linked to the May Arts Ribbon Store
350-58 White sheer ruffled edge ribbon 5/8" wide(for the Daisy Flowers)
419-27 Mini Pom Pom Ribbon in Yellow(for the Center of Daisy flowers)
419-10 Mini Pom Pom Ribbon in Black(for the bee's Head, and stinger)
379-15-66 Sage Pleats Ribbon 1.5"(for the leaves on the Daisy)

471-15-01 White Tulle 1.5" (for Bow)also for (Bee wings)
392-58-01 Sheer Box/Pleats Ribbon White(for the Yellow on Bee) I spritz it to create the yellow

Hello everyone,
Today's card was designed for SCS Sketch challenge this week. On my card I used CottageCutz Tropical Release. what a super sweet release! Love all the sea animals in this collection. All dies used are listed below and linked to the Scrapping Cottage.

Wave Border
Moon Shell

I airbrushed everything on this card using

I am very pleased with how my card turned out. I loved layering all the CottageCutz dies on this card. I did flip the sketch to the side, so it would be a little different than the other one I made using the same sketch.

Design paper is from Echo Park and is called "for the Record 2" I also added some Viva Pearl Pen for the eyes. Lastly I added a Button and some ribbon for my bow! Both of those are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Graphic45 Raining Cats & Dogs Mini Album /Video

Hello everyone, I am super excited to share another Graphic45 Mini Album I created using the Raining Cats & Dogs Collection. Absolutely LOVE this collection, and love the way my mini album turned out.

I only had 7 sheets of the Graphic45 Raining Cats & Dogs to use, as I wasnt fast enough at checkout online to get the paper pads, they went out of stock super fast. So I ended up finding some sheets at a craft store up north and bought a few. I did however get the die cut sheets to go with this collection and used those throughout my mini. Most of the flowers were made by me using seam binding, other flowers are from RRR.

All the cat brads were from my stash, I have had them for years, and they finally came into use....hehehehe, also used some animal packs of buttons for the mice,bones, dog house, cats, paws and so on.

Ribbons are from my stash, and pom pom mini is from May Arts, other random ribbons and some of the seam binding is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

There are 6 interactive pages inside this mini album.

I also used some CottageCutz Corner dies for these 2 pages. LOVE these Corner dies, they are absolutely beautiful!!
