Time To Sale-A-Brate Blog Hop


Welcome the Inky Friends Time to Sale-A-Brate Blog Hop!  Our friendly group has organized a hop for you showing the 2018 Sale-A-Bration products that are available for free with a qualified purchase.   You can visit the My Inky Friends website for a complete list of blog hop participants by clicking on the banner below!


When I first get a peek at a new catalog I confess that I race through and check out all the new stamps.   Then I go back and look more closely at all the new trims and embellishments.  These little gems don't take center stage most of the time so I thought it would be fun to create a project where they are the main show.
I started with a cardstock rectangle cutout and used the luscious Shimmer Ribbon Pack to weave a frame.  The ribbon is SO pretty with a delicate sheen.   The three widths made a fun pattern when woven together.    I kept extra embellishments to a minimum and added just a petite double bow and little tassel.
The tassel is from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.
I took pictures along the way as I was creating this so I will be sharing a tutorial as soon as I can.  I am not specifying an exact date for completion of the tutorial as I have a super full schedule ahead.  This is a very fun project so I hope you think it worth the wait:)
