Ric Rac Roses!


Happy Thursday!!! So nearly the weekend - hang on in there, peeps! LOL!
So you better get used to Thursdays here on my blogeroo because every Thursday we have a new CASE study!!! Makiko Jones is the MUSE for our August Creations, so wanna see her creation that's up for the CASE study this week?

Here it is: what to CASE for this week?! Well I spotted that Makiko had used some lovely DP and some flowers - not the kinda things I that I use a lot of, but am ashamed to say I hoard in my crafty cupboard LOL!!! So I rooted through the DP stash to find a sheet by Basic Grey I've been hoarding for years; looked kinda similar to Maikko's and just played:

Now I know it's not a card! I struggle with DP on cards so I cheated and you can cheat too! So long as your creation takes some inspiration from the original creation, it totally counts!

This week's sponsor is Bonnie of Really Reasonable Ribbon; now I, along with the rest of the DT, had the complete joy of playing with some samples - oh free ribbon, pinch me!!! The flowers on this bag were made from rolling up some sweet baby pink rickrack ribbon and putting a few stitches in to hold them - you can catch a tutorial of that here. And the sweet pink ribbon holding my gift bag shut is also from Really Reasonable Ribbon too! I recommend a taking a peek over there, there's a ribbon for every occasion!

So why not play along and join in the chance of winning some sweet ribbon and have some fun whilst you're at it too?! Need more inspiration? Check out the awesome creations by the rest of the DT:

Beautiful gift bag, Aimes!! That's such a lovely way to use up patterned papers. I really need to work on that... Your ric rac roses look adorable! I think I like your ribbon version even better than Betsy's felt roses.
