My new love... Ribbon Stiff

Okay... now Jenny has uploaded our layouts over at RJR I can share them with you....

This month she sent us a pack that included Ribbon Stiff.... I so love it. There is just so very very much you can do with it.... first share....

This was my first attempt with the Ribbon Stiff. I treated some of the Strano with Ribbon Stiff and wondered if it was possible to put it through my theory it should work really..... so....
And guess what... it worked! yah! So once I had printed on it, I then rounded the corners and set an eyelet in it and there you go. Very simple project, but a fabulous bookmark!
And the kids are already fighting over it... lol

Now this is the layout I did this month.
As soon as I saw the ribbon Jenny sent me I thought of the Dockers. And who supports the Dockers... Jonathan. So naturally that's what I did a layout off.
This time, after I had treated the ribbon, I decided to cut a scallop along one edge of the ribbon. The beauty of Ribbon Stiff is it stops fraying, so cutting a scallop is easy. I also put printed a title on another length of Ribbon and then handcut the title.
This is so very easy with the Ribbon Stiff.

And these are the 2 cards I made also.
The first one, the green one, I treated the other ribbon Jenny sent us with Ribbon Stiff, then cut petals out of the ribbon, all the same way so the stripes matched and then punched the spirals out of the ribbon. I so love those spirals!
And then I assembled the flower....

The other card I have used some ribbon wrapped around a pencil and treated with Ribbon Stiff to give me the loops. When it was dry, I then assembled the loops into the petals of a flower and there you go.
Very very easy.

And now you know why I'm in love with Ribbon Stiff... it is so versatile, and allows you to do so very much more with ribbon.

And if you're real quick and head on over to RJR you can get this months ribbon AND a bottle of Ribbon Stiff in a pack for 10% off retail..... so what are you still doing here.......
And while you're there... don't forget to check out Jenny's blog with the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT.
Can't wait for the next pack...
