May Arts New Release Blog Hop - Sweet Little Baby


Today is day 1 of the May Arts Spring/Summer New Release Blog Hop!  There are so many gorgeous new ribbons...and you'll want to own them all!

I got to play with the new Adhesive gingham hearts.  They are just soooo adorable and the acrylic backing sticks to everything from clothing to metal.

I have a friend with a brand new baby girl so all things sweet and pink were my inspiration
.  


 First up is this sweet little onsie & sock set.


 I sewed May Arts 3/8" Crochet Trim to the neckline then a row of the sweet new Adhesive Mini Gingham Hearts.Because these will washed frequently, I tacked the hearts to the neckline and socks with a needle and thread and a tiny running stitch in the center of the hearts.

And just because I couldn't resist, I added May Arts new Adhesive Rosettes to the backside.


How adorable is that!!?

The sweet little cards were created on my Gazelle with a cut file from The Cutting Cafe.


I added the same crochet trim to the arms and leg openings with double sided tape, then it was just peel and stick those adorable adhesive hearts and done!

Want to win some of this adorable ribbon or any of the other new releases? 

Just leave a comment on the Ribbonista blogs today and tomorrow.  3 lucky winners will be drawn by the Ribbon Lady for your choice of one of the new releases.

Here's the full 2 day line up so you don't miss any of the crafty inspiration.

Valentine Card Banner



It's time for another fabulous May Arts Blog Hop!  I'm rounding out the two days of hopping inspiration with a fun way to create a banner AND use up your ribbon scraps as well.  I was inspired by a banner I saw on Pinterest for $25.  I knew I had a deck of cards and lots of scrap ribbon so I knew I could make this pretty banner for nothing by recycling my cards and scraps.  



Just measure the width of your doorway or mantle then cut ribbon to span the width plus enough for streamers or bows, if desired.  Punch holes in your cards, thread onto the ribbon, spacing evenly. Now just tie on your scraps...any size or style works.  If you prefer pink or black...go for it!  



Bonus!  Easy enough for the kids too.  

Just check out all of these Valentine ribbons

Hang your banner and enjoy!  It's like instant decorating!



Want to win some beautiful May Arts ribbon of your own?  Just be sure to comment on EACH Ribbonista's blog.  The Ribbon Lady will be choosing 2 winners of 2 rolls of May Arts Ribbon!
