Ribbon Share: 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon

It’s time for my first Ribbon Share with ribbon from the new catalog!   I know that many of you enjoy getting “samplers” of all the new ribbons, but can’t afford to get a full bolt of all the colors.  So, here is your solution!  You will get 2 yards each of the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon for $18.  ($20 if you need me to ship it to you)

1/4″ Cotton Ribbon

2 yards of each color (24 yards)

 I’m sorry that the photos I took didn’t turn out as “realistic” as I had hoped.  I tried indoors and outdoors, and no luck.  This is an amazing ribbon with a soft, pliable feel.  It is not rough or heavy, as I first thought it might be.  You will definitely like it!

Colors include:  Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Pool Party, Pear Pizazz, Blushing Bride, Marina Mist, Whisper White, Daff0dil Delight

I have already heard from some of you that wanted this Ribbon Share.  If you have NOT talked to me, please place your order right away.  I will order more ribbon when 5 of you have ordered.   You can email me or comment below.  I can also arrange for a PayPal statement to be sent to you if you need to pay with Credit Card.

chevron ribbon sampler 2


Chevron Ribbon has arrived — and been packaged as shown above!  If you reserved a spot in the Ribbon Share, please let me know if you would like come pick it up, or if you’d like for me to mail it to you (for $2 fee).  This second sampler includes 2 yards each of  6 colors:  Blushing Bride, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Island Indigo, Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip.    If you missed the first group, with the other 6 colors, I have just received an additional shipment of ribbon and I can now fulfill additional orders.  Please let me know.   I am always willing to order more, so please let me know if the “craziness” of summer has kept you from ordering, and I’ll get your ribbon for you.

And here is a sneak peek at my next post………if you enjoy combining Stampin’ Up! with sewing projects, you will love this amazing gift from my dear friend Katherine.  Come back tomorrow for lots of photos and details.   You will really enjoy hearing how Katherine used a variety of Stampin’ Up! products to create this amazing gift!   PS  I promise that I’m going to get back in the swing of blogging regularly VERY SOON!

Ribbon Shares

We all know how much I love ribbon!  Yes, I have already ordered ALL the new ribbon and it will be here tomorrow!  I can’t imagine making a card without a little bit (or a bunch) of ribbon.  That would be unheard of!  So……maybe you like the ribbon as much as I do, and you’d like a little sample of it, too.  I realize that it is too expensive for most of you to purchase it all at once, so Ribbon Shares give you the chance to get 2 yards of each color for a fraction of the cost.  You must place your order with me, allow me time to order the ribbon from Stampin’ Up!, and package it up for you.  It will take about 2 weeks.  I am happy to mail it to you in a padded envelope for an additional $2, but local pick-up is always fine.

New Ribbon Share Available

 ribbon photo

Good morning ladies!  I have new ribbon shares packaged and ready for you.  Many of you told me at our Club Class and at my Customer Appreciation Party that you were eager to have them, so here they are!  You will receive 2 yards of each color.  They have been professionally wrapped, sorted, and packaged by my lovely daughter, Sarah.  She has been earning money this summer as my personal assistant……and worked overtime yesterday helping me with the business.  There is another story right behind that……no one was home for her to fight with!  She was so productive without the big sisters to argue with.  Hmmm….is there a greater message here?

Ribbon Share In Color 2009

What:  12 yards of ribbon (2 yards each)

Cost:  $12 if you pick up

            $14 if you want them mailed to you

This is a tremendous way for you to have all the colors of ribbon without having to buy a spool of each one… good for customers and fellow demonstrators alike! If we put this into perspective, it takes an average of 16″ to wrap a card (depending on the orientation), so with this much ribbon, you will be able to embellish at least 27 cards!!  And if you are just doing small bows or not wrapping the entire card……..think of how many more cards you can make!  Join the ribbon share today!


Now I’d like to bring you back to the card I posted a day or two ago and tell you about the bow……..I did not tie the bow traditionally.  It would have been too bulky — especially with the button on top of it.

Here is the beginning of my card:

bow 1

 Then I took the ribbon and arranged it like this photo.  I added embroidery floss to the center and scrunched it up in the middle.  I tied a knot in the floss to hold it together.

bow 2

Then I threaded the floss through the holes in the button, tied another knot, and cut off the tails.

bow 3

Added it all to the card front using Glue Dots……….and there you have it!

bow 4

bow 5

Supplies Used:  Stamp Sets:  Razzle Dazzle and Teeny Tiny Wishes; Cardstock:  Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Whisper White;  DSP:  Razzleberry Lemonade; Ink:  Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo; Ribbon:  Melon Mambo Polka Dotted Grosgrain; Accessories:  Button Latte, Glue Dots.
