Ribbon Inspiration/Stamp Simply Style--Red Hot Ribbon!!!

Stamp Simply Ribbon Inspiration time once again...our theme for this week is RED HOT RIBBON! Yes, our focus is on that wonderfully warm color for ribbon and accessories. I had fun whipping up a cute little Valentine photo album for a gift...warning: photo overload...


I started with Kaisercraft's "Beyond the Page Mini Albums #2" set. I mixed and matched the mdf page shapes from the set so that I would have different layers available to mount pictures upon. The Mini Albums #2 are marked down currently, as are the Mini Albums #1.

I covered all of the pages front and back with 6 X 6" Bo Bunny "Enchanted Collection." Fabulous pad...all black and white with classic and "loving" details. Made it easy to add that splash of red! "Enchanted" also has a clear stamp set to match...see it HERE.




I die cut the heart of front of the album with a Spellbinders Classic Heart die, then attached looped May Art's Sheer Dotted and narrow Gingham ribbon loops to the back. I also added an extra small heart to the back of the larger heart to help hold the ribbon in place and add a bit of stability.





Here's a cute little heart addition using JustRite's "Winter Words Collection." The set matches up with "JustRite's Custom Spellbinder Charm die," plus an added red hot accent of a Kaisercraft Rhinestone. Did you notice the "Be Mine" sentiment stamped on the lower right of the page? It's also from "JustRite's Winter Words" set...it framed out perfectly with the decorator paper print!
{NOTE:  JustRite Winter Words is marked down right now}




Thought it would be fun to throw a banner on one of the pages. I used Spellbinders Nested Pennant dies, stamped once again with sentiments from JustRite's "Winter Words" set.



The final pages wouldn't be complete without an "I Love You" sentiment courtesy (once again) of JustRite's "Winter Words."




Here's a closeup of the Valentine greeting on the cover by JustRite's "Winter Words," along with a bit of red hot bling of KaiserCraft Rhinestones.  Strands of May Art's Sheer, Sheer Dotted, and Gingham Ribbons attached to the upper corner of the album add to the RED HOT theme.

I'm looking forward on seeing some cute pictures mounted on the emply spaces!

ALL of today's supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

Wow, Deb! This mini album is wonderful! I love the paper you chose, and you are so right about those red hot rhinestones-they may be small--but pack a lot of power! Of course the ribbon heart is amazing. The pennant page was the biggest surprise...but you are the Pennant Queen! I should have expected it! LOL

Hope you are doing well! Thanks for all of the photos on this project!

He IS Able!
