Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Did you get a chance to play in your craft room? I managed to get a little crafting time in between more mundane but necessary activites. The first set I inked up was the My Friend stamp set. I love this bold image and the words. There are a couple of other images in the set that I am working on using. They are cool images but a little more challenging for me.
Are you wondering if there is a new narrow striped grosgrain ribbon in the catalog? The answer is no. At my group meeting on Saturday, Lisa W shared with us how to finish the edge of the striped grosgrain ribbon after you cut it so it doesn't ravel. She took a lighter and held it close to the cut edge of the ribbon. The side of the flame just barely touching the raw edge. If you hold it too close you will burn the ribbon so practice over the kitchen sink. When you are done you will have a beautifully sealed edge that will not ravel.
Here's one more using the same stamps from the My Friend stamp set.
Isn't stamping so fun? I love that you can totally change up the feeling of this stamp set using different colors and accesories. Okay that is it for today! I am off to the post office. Jim got to the post office too late on Saturday so I am mailing catalogs today! Sorry for the delay ladies but they are coming! If you need a catalog and do not have a SU demonstrator please contact me and we will get one to you!
