i love ribbon.

Seriously, is there anything better than pretty ribbon? Take few minutes this week to sift through your collection. Find something  with at least 3 colors in it and let it inspire an entire page or project. If you love the colors in your ribbon, you will love the colors on your layout as well!

Challenge: Start with some ribbon, then pull one sheet of cardstock for each color in the ribbon. Pay attention to the proportion of color and keep it simple.

Even Better: Frame your focal point photo with your ribbon!


As a purely-for-FUN gift-giving BONUS, I thought I’d share these over-the-top adorable mini cupcake liners. A colorful stack of these with a box of cake mix all wrapped up cute would make a memorable teacher or neighbor gift.¬†


Can you imagine the sheer cuteness of it all? See these and much more at Bake It Pretty.



  1. On a cloudy November morning these colors sure make me happy! I am up for this challenge. I display my layouts on an easel in the living room before putting them into my LOM albums so this layout will surely brighten up the room.

  2. I just have to have some of those colorful cupcake liners. The problem will be picking a color. Great colors choices. Bright, cheerful and invigorating.

  3. Stacy,
    Doooon’t forget to tell us your favorite glue runner gun with which to attach the ribbon. I won’t use as much ribbon if it is a pain to attach!

  4. Love the colors in the ribbon and what a great idea for a layout. I’ve got much too much ribbon laying around so it’s time to get inspired and use it! Thanks.

    Thanks also for the cupcake liner/cake mix idea. Always an inspired idea.
