It's summertime!  My kids love pinwheels, so I made this little card for them to take a Wii break.  I hope you enjoy the use of the Olive You rumple ribbon and Kiwi Glitter Sorbet collection glitter paper from The Robin's Nest.  It's a great color and I seem to be gravitating towards it lately.  Enjoy!
The colors don't look so great, but they are wonderful in person!

Mama Lovebug's Butterfly Gift Tag & Christine's Sweet Gift Bag ♥

Good Morning, Crafties.........I hope your Memorial Weekend was full of fun and good cheer!  In NW Ohio we had a very dismal, cloudy day with plenty of rain. Can you say the word yucky!  I needed to make a gift tag for a friend so I pulled out the delightful cardstock from The Robin's Nest and punched out some pretty butterflies.  LBC has been featuring projects with the wonderful Sorbet Glitter collection this month - wow the month really zipped by, but it's been inspiring to use their products!!  I must confess I'm not a real glitter fan but this paper is NOT super glittery so you don't have a mess on your hands or your craft area - good thing to know, right? Check this out The Robin's Nest

I just became familiar with Mr. Huey sprays and masks so I took some Kraft cardstock and sprayed it using the mask and sprays.  Then I covered parts of this with LoveBug Creations Mama's Mesh and added some LBC Rumple Ribbon for bows and gift tag tail.  These products were great fun to work with and I bet you have some ideas on how you too can create a project for an upcoming event that is both versatile and unique.  Click on this link to view the LBC Online Store

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.

Don't forget to join us here on Friday for a partnered up blog hop with Jaded Blossom - it's a wedding theme!!

And now for Christine's Project
Aloha Crafters!

This week I'm sharing a quick and easy way to dress up a simple gift bag.

Dawn Rene's Gorgeous Graduation Tag ♥

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day!  Dawn Rene here today to share with you my Lovebug Creations and Robin's Nest project. This week I created a graduation tag. It is for one of my children's babysitters that graduated from high school this past weekend. I know it appears "dark and gloomy" - but her school colors are black, maroon, and silver. 

I colored in the graduation Besties digi stamp with Copic markers. I decorated the tag with Lovebug Creations' Simply Black ribbon and their new Revere's Ride Red ribbon. I added Robin's Nest fabulous tear drops in the center of the flowers, on the butterflies, and sprinkled around the rest of the tag!

A special thanks to everyone that has served our country!

Have a great week....

Mama LoveBug - First off Happy Birthday, Michelle - when LBC began, you were one of our first crafty friends and we've enjoyed seeing your projects and your awesome talent!!
Since I'm up first today I wanted to share two double-sided stand up cards I made with Michelle in mind.

The first is a purple peanut - but it really came out a pinky purple peanut in the photo.
*2 printed out Mrs. Peanut Images from PPbN that I highlighted with Star Dust gel pen and Stickles after fussy cutting and adhering to 2 more layers of Kraft paper (fussy cutting again) to give the card weight; don't want her to fall down on the job!
*LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon in a variety of purple hues

Next I did basically the same thing with another image - Crazy Cheshire Cat

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it........birthday blessings to you Michelle...........Mama LoveBug


Kimi here with my 2 gifts for Michelle!! The first one is her Birthday Card... With Super Pusheen (THANKS ANNIE!!!) on it! Love this file and how awesome that she's giving them all away free to you today!
For this card I made a file on the Cameo and then behind the cut outs are 3 **NEW** Rumple Ribbons that I made esp. for the birthday girl! They are Purple-licious, Pink Poppy, and Lavender Lily!! And those of you that know Michelle know why I chose these names for this very special set! I added a super hero badge with a "P" for Pusheen and popped him up! I used a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's "Kitty Kitty" set! Here it is...
I put the card on top of the ribbons so you could see them a little better! :)
and before we go to the next gift I wanted to share a little something with you!
These Rumple Ribbons will be offered as freebies with purchase HERE this weekend ONLY! Check out the following pics for info!!

Ok now onto my next gift!! I needed something to put these fun new Rumple Ribbons in to send them to Michelle...So I made her a train case!! I used some K & CO papers, A SVGcuts file, Sentiment on tag from Jaded Blossom "Simple Sayings", The Tag Die from Jaded Blossom, some Lovebug Creations Mama's Mesh and of course a little bit of Lavender Lily Rumple Ribbon!! Add to that a gorgeous flower (that I totally wish I could say was handmade by me..but it wasn't! It was made by my wonderful friend, Tanya Stilwell!!!) Here's the Train Case!!!

Hope you are enjoy this hop for our dear friend, Michelle...

3 Ah-MAY-Zing Ladies share some awesome cards ♥

Hello Buckeyes and Crafties!  
Today I want to share a card cut out on the Cameo for a friend who has a friend who just had a future OSU alum..........well the thing is I cut out this onesie three times.  First I used pink damask paper and then I cut out a onesie with red damask paper.  My third cut used OSU designer paper, and because it was on the flimsy side, I adhered it to the red damask and used the trim pieces of pink and OSU paper on each card.

Jaded Blossom has a two-piece treat die that came in handy for the sentiment (stamp from my stash) and then I created bows for both cards using LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon - red and pink and red and grey. HERE

I love this Cameo!!  I should have bought one last year but never thought I'd care for it.........wrong.........if you are on the fence.......jump over quicker than I did!!  Also, I'd like to thank my daughter and fellow LoveBug Creations partner, Kimi, for all her help as she is also new to the Cameo!!  Our LBC CT mates, Tanya and Zeni, have been extolling the wonders of the Cameo for months - we should have listened to them sooner!

Remember no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.........cyberhugs.......Mama LoveBug
And now for Martha's Project

Hey Everyone
Happy Friday and Memorial day weekend ;)
Today is a inspirational card using Phyllis Rumple Ribbon

Hey y'all!

You can see more about this card on my blog.
Thanks for letting me share today. I hope everyone has a wonderful memorial Day weekend!!

Ellen's Special Delivery ♥

Heading into the patriotic summer holidays of Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, I asked Kimi of Lovebug Creations to please develop some Rumple Ribbons in red, white and blue. She responded in spades!!
She made two sets of R-W-B ... one that is called the Old Glory collection, and the other is the Star Spangled collection, both of which are now available in the online store.

Old Glory has more vintage, subdued colors of Betsy Ross Blue, Washington White and Revere's Ride Red. In the Star Spangled collection, you'll find parts of the "Simply" colors -- Simply Red, Simply White, Simply Blue.  (Simply Black and Simply Grey are also now available.)  

This card mixes up the collections; I used Simply Red and Betsy Ross Blue -- and they're perfect matches for my die cut tags on this card. Hop on over to my blog for more details on how I made this card!

Dawn Mercedes is Stellar ♥

You know what they say! Sometimes Less is More...
But sometimes More is even better!  

On this mash up card featuring Papers from The Robin's Nest and Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations, I used a touch of the Kiwi Sorbet papers....and a jackpot full of ribbons from the Spring Rainbow Collection!!

Oh, and a few Raindrop dew drops for even more interest!

Christine's Shrieking Violets :)

It's Tuesday so that means that I have a new project to share with you featuring some gorgeous Lovebug Creations Rumple Ribbon. All this month the Creative Team has been inspired by the beautiful papers and dew drops from The Robin's Nest and this week I combined them with violets for a wild color combination.
Please come over to the Scarlet Calliope Blog to check out my card and my technique for stamping on Rumple Ribbon!
