Over at 2 sketches 4 U Kazan has created a lovely sketch and the examples from her and the talent DT are just inspirational! They have used some beautiful ribbon from May Arts.
And I have to admit that every Tuesday morning (that is when I check the blog for the weekly sketch) I am absolutely gobsmacked at the talent of the cards presented and I look at the products used with these cards and I say to Neil ... 'I wish we lived in America!!!' ... I think since most scrapbooking and cardmaking products are made in USA it would be wonderful to live there and have so much unlimited (except finances!) access to these, whereas here in Australia we only have access to what the shop owners and wholesalers purchase from the manufacturers in USA. Usually ribbons are not high on the list and it tends to be paper, rubons, stickers and brads. But I think there is enough products in Australia to satisfy me ... but I can dream!!!
Below is a card that I made using Kazans' sketch. I have used Kaiser paper (sweets collection), Carolee Creations and Pink Paislee alpha stickers, Sizzix medium tipsy heart, split rings, cuttlebug heart embossing folder, American crafts ribbon, scalloped scissors and eyelets. I have used the split pins to hang the heart.
Thanks for looking and have a great week.
