May Arts Design Team Call

May Arts is one of the most wonderful companies I have had the pleasure to work with.  The ribbon is top notch and leaves me with an endless supply of inspiration.  There hasn't been a project that I have worked on over the last year or so that doesn't have at least 1 piece of May Arts ribbon on it, I love it so much:)
Leave me a comment letting me know what you think of my projects and I will pick a random winner at the end of the week (June 15th) and I will send you some of my personal May Arts stash :)  I will put your name in twice if you become a follower on my blog :)

Project 1:  Altered book
I altered an old book with this wonderful collection from My Little Shoebox. I used all May Arts Ribbons.



 Project 2: Messinger Bag
 For this project I created a messenger bag for my daughter.  There are tons of May Arts ribbons on this project.



Project 3:  Be Happy round ruffled edge tutorial



For this layout I used the My Little Shoebox Keepsake line.
To make the ruffle around the rounded edge of my patterned paper I cut strip 1 1/2" wide by about 2" long.  I punched my border then pinced it in the middle, making it easier to go around my circle.  Then I simply just taped it to the back of my circled patterned paper.
From here I added my picture and ribbons.  I started with my widest ribbons and layered from there.  I ended up using 6 different May Arts ribbons on my layout:)




I am hoping to make the May Arts Design Team again this year.  Please leave me some love here and over at the May Arts blog letting the Ribbon Lady know that you would like the tutorials for all my projects :)  Best of luck with all trying out, and best of luck to May Arts choosing a new team.
Thanks for all of your support,
Jenifer

Dolls with May Arts Ribbons

I have a cute post up over at the May Arts blog today.  Go check it out:)
I thought I would show you these super cute dolls that my 9 year old daughter and I made this last weekend.  I got this great Simplicity Pattern #1900 and followed the pattern instructions for the doll and the clothing.
The fun really started when we were making the clothing and we pulled out a bunch of ribbon to give it that extra special touch.
For the pink one we used May Arts ribbons 389-18-17, 392-58-17 and  390-38-09.
For the purple one we used May Arts ribbons 389-18-47 and PV34.
I hope this inspires you to use up some of your scraps of ribbons.  You could even use them on premade doll clothes.  Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today.  Leave me a link to what you have created lately I would love to check it out.
