Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Grand Opening Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's Grand Opening Blog Hop! We're so very pleased that you are able to join us today! A few notable items from Sharon... "We have a total of 5 designers sharing projects with you today, a fun progressive Blog Candy offering and a lot of quality items at great sale prices for you to enjoy -- Spellbinders, JustRite and a large assortment of paper products are the featured sale items.


But don't forget to check out the gorgoues new offerings by Prima, Webster's Pages, Melissa Frances, Bo Bunny, Cosmo Cricket, Kaisercraft, LaBlanche, and Pink Paislee to name a few -- not to mention the large selection of May Arts ribbons.

If you have yet to read about the fabulous blog candy mentioned above, be certain to check out the details at Sharon's blog.


My project for today's hop features Melissa Frances 5th Avenue decorator paper, Neutral Crepe Paper, and Cream Lace. I gathered the crepe paper with a large stitch on my sewing machine, layering it over the patterned background. 




I traced a bird shape onto chipboard, then covered it with more of the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue paper.

A May Art's wide silk ribbon bow, formed with a Bow Easy, as well as a glittered chipboard heart and Baby Pink Fairy Tale Prima blossom, add the final touches to this song bird wall hanging.

All supplies used today are available at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.





Make sure that you continue on to see the other pretty offerings that the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Design Team have come up with:

Sharon Johnson – owner
Michelle Woerner

Barb Schram

Thanks so much for joining in on the celebration...!
