I am so grateful and want send a shout out to May Arts thank you! I have been a fan (as my friends know) of May Arts for years ... I still am a big fan and have at least 3 shelves and lots of mega jars of ribbon, I am truly a ribbon hoarder. I love having lots of ribbon on my projects for the texture, color and inspiration.
I also want to congratulate all the ladies that made it to Round Two. There are some very talented ladies that tried out. Here is the list
Its a good day! Happy Scrapping ..

Its my turn again to be featured over at Basically Bare Blog. Today I am sharing a really cute "Oh So Mini" album from Basically Bare using the new collection for summer from Bobunny "Key Lime". This album turned out very bright and whimsical. So perfect for summer, beaching it, or a cruise on the high seas.
I am also adding a special announcement today that I will be TEACHING this class for those of you that live in So. Florida. I am teaching this adorable class over at Scrapbooking Depot. There are only limited spaces so please call and get a seat, hopefully I will see some familiar faces there.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a scrappy day.

Oh my gosh! I never submit for design teams because it makes me nervous but I had to throw in
my hat for
the Design Team Call to be on May Arts team. I loooovvve ribbon, and yes I do hoard.
There will be two rounds, so crossing my fingers I get through round one!
If you are interested in also submitting your work for this fabulous company and product here is the link: May Arts Design Team Call
So for my first submission and a short tutorial I created this journal and titled it "My Scrapiness". I wove several different elements together to give the journal a "want to touch" it feeling. I wanted to have this journal as my inspiration journal; therefore I wanted to make sure the cover first portrayed my personality which is a "little bit of everything". Secondly, I need to be inspired to pick up the journal and write so for me it has to have texture and interest.
1. Cut piece of cardstock to fit cover of your journal. I cut Kraft cardstock 6x9
2. Leaving 1 inch border all the way around my 6x9 piece I started cutting from upper left side every 1/2 inch from top to bottom till I reached 1/2 inch from my right edge.
3. Then I started weaving in and out different ribbon, fiber, fabric, pattern paper through the slits that I cut.
4. When finished filling in all the space, I machine sewed all along my 1 inch border so that none of my weaving and ribbons would unravel.
5. Lastly I added different elements to make my cover interesting. I then glued the 6x9 sheet on my journal cover.
My favorite thing to make are mini albums here is a mini album I did for the May Arts / Basically Bare swap. I used lots of May Arts ribbon and Little Yellow Bicycle

I thought that was pretty cool to have one of my albums on the back of the product packaging for Basically Bare "Oh So Mini" mix and match albums.
I posted this album on their blog when it was featured so here is a link to that album. My "Memories" album of course was made from the Oh So Mini collection, then I added lots of techniques and Prima.
I also have this album I made below on the Basically Bare online store. That's pretty cool too :)
Thanks for stopping by, I just wanted to share because for me I thought it was pretty cool.
Happy Scrapping ...
