Epiphany and May Arts blog hop

Okay, I know this is going to sound crazy, but it snowed yesterday here in Calgary, and I was so excited.  Normally at this time of the year I am complaining about the aforementioned weather phenomenon, but yesterday’s snow was met by afternoon sun, and that meant SNOWMEN!!!  Most of the time it is too cold up here in Calgary, so suitable “snowman snow” happens only a couple of times a year.  Yesterday was one of those days, so the two little gals and I got outside for some creative time!

While it was so fun to watch them in the snow, I have to admit that there is something special about sharing creative crafty times with my gals too!  So for today’s Epiphany/May Arts blog hop, I thought it would be fun to scrapbook one of those memories!  My youngest, who turned four last week loves to paint, and when she get’s started, it is no holds barred. In this photo, I was trying to capture the fact that she had gone through 9 sheets from her painting pad and was still going strong!  Sheer concentration!

Now when the Ribbon Lady mentioned we would be teaming up with Epiphany Crafts, I was so excited!  I had the perfect excuse to work with some more of my new release Double Faced Satin ribbons, and who knew what fun might come my way from EC! What did come my way were these Bubble Cap Pennants, and I knew they would be a fun way to dress up some ribbon!

So I got out my scissor, and a fancy little tea light…

…trimmed up the edges…

…and then just ran the flame across really quickly to seal everything up!

What I ended up with were these great pennant pieces that not only had a cool textured finish from the bubble cap, but also still showed off the beautiful satin ribbon.  And I had some great elements to coordinate with my layout!

  1. This is a fabulous layout! I love the ribbon banner technique and will have to try that. At first glance, I thought they were just ribbon. Amazing & beautiful.
