Hello Summer !

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are all having a great summer so far, we just got back from camping and the weather was perfect !!
Today I am sharing a layout I created as a finalist for the May Arts Ribbon design team call. I'd love to be one of the new  Prima Ribbonista ! Fingers crossed :)

Hello Summer !

Supplies for this layout are from Fancy Pants Designs (Making Waves collection), May Arts Ribbon, Spellbinders and My Mind's Eye.

Here's a look at how I created this Summer themed layout.

Step 1- Create an anchor with wire and pliers.


Step 2- Wrap navy paper cord from May Arts Ribbon adding bits of glue to hold into place.

Step 3- Attach a small piece of white paper cord on the loop of the anchor.


Step 4- I love adding texture to background paper and for this project I decided to add spirals of paper cord in light blue, navy and white. I love how malleable this cord is.

Step 5- Machine stitch into place, if desired.

Step 6- Trim 3 various pieces of ribbon 2 inches long, adhere behind narrow strip of navy paper. 
For this project, I used 3/4" Twill/Chevron in yellow and light blue and 7/8" Grosgrain horizontal stripes ribbon in orange.

Step 7- Fold ribbons over and trim off into points to create flags. Machine stitch the small flags into place.

Step 8- Adhere/machine stitch a 12" piece of yellow chevron ribbon on the left side of layout ,adding a strip of striped paper and a star cardstock die piece on each side.

Here's a close up of that hand crafted anchor :)

and a close up of the small flags.

 I hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial.
As always, thanks for visiting.....wish me luck !


  1. So glad I popped in to take a closer look at your project. I've been wanting this FPD stack and love your layout. I didn't realize how many different ribbon elements were used until you identified them. At first glance, I thought the flags were paper! This really is amazing and you did a fantastic job!

  2. WOW I adore this Marielle!! so clever and a totally sweet page too! xxx
