Hi everybody, do you have today off work? It’s a bank holiday here in the UK so everywhere is quiet and I’m hoping to get into the attic and do some crafting
I have a fab new Guest Designer to introduce to you today, we have the lovely Mary joining us for April…
I think most of you will recognise Mary, she’s known in the craft world as The Ribbon Girl!
Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea, and have always crafted (card making, scrapbooking, cake decorating, sewing, embroidery, soft toy making etc.) and found it had become more and more difficult to buy very small quantities of good quality ribbon, lace and buttons at reasonable prices
As they love ribbons, lace, flowers and all things pretty and sparkly, they decided to open their own online store The Ribbon Girl in 2010 so that they could make very small (or large) quantities of top quality products available to all crafters …and they only sell what they would use themselves
Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis while Andrea looks after the social side including the Ribbon Girl Blog, Challenges and their talented Design Team
So, whether you like crafting in classic, vintage, shabby chic or modern style take a look because you'll be spoiled for choice in the Ribbon Girl online store
Mary’s first piece of work as Guest Designer is this adorable little house …
OMG this is so cute, I can't wait to have a go myself!
She’s used the Perfect Pair papers and then cut out our little Blossom from a Mini Masterpiece sheet …how clever!
You can also get Blossom as a stamp if you prefer
Make sure you take a look at Mary’s own blog here for more of her lovely work and details of how she made this house
There will be more from Mary throughout April, don’t forget to visit the Ribbon Girl website and also their blog where you can find weekly challenges and regular gorgeous giveaways!
See you tomorrow for another sneaky peek of the latest stamps
