As you probably have already read on Paula's blog, I have to get up on a regular basis by 4am. So by 4:30 I had been up showered, and ready to go. I was trying to be very quiet, but guess I awoke sleeping beauty. So I started working on Thurs. nights Chatterbox book until time to start our mad-dome of none stop classes.

  • Sizzix die-cut ribbon
  • Quad-tied ribbons

    Pages were embellished with mini glitter coaster tags, puff stickers and rhinestone brads.

Ribbon tied on a tagRibbon Flower - Twist 3 3inch pieces of ribbon, insert in the center of a brad to the bottom of brad. Insert brad through a chipboard coaster adhere to page. Separate ribbons and it makes a Flower.Ribbon tied around a puff flower..why in the world I had never tried this I do not know..its is so simple, just twist ribbon around and under the flower. It is SOOOOOO cute.

Ribbon Lattice - how cute it is...just insert picture or tag and you are ready to go. You adhere ribbon only on the ends to edge of pageRibbon photo corners. Take 2 1/2 inch ribbon, wrap around photo mat, adhere only on back of mat.
