June RRR Blog Hop!

My Current Candy here!

********************************************


The Ribbon Club Assortment for June is the Brazilian Summer Mix!  The lush brilliant colors and patterns make me want a trip to the Islands!  (I wish!)  My project today fits the theme perfect for the sunny Island weather too!



Isn't this assortment great??  It contains 9 styles!  If you haven't looked into the ribbon club yet, you should check it out and join today!  You will get a fun new ribbon assortment shipped 
automatically each month.  It's like Christmas EVERY month!
If you have joined me here from Heather's blog, you're right on track!

If you get lost on the way, head back to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Ramblings blog to get back on track! 

  When you're through checking out my project, head toward the fabulous Jeanne's blog and you're almost at the end of the hop!   Now, be sure to leave some love at all the stops along the way. Your comments are most appreciated not to mention the chance to win club ribbons of your own!

 Now, let's get to it!  I've made a parasol card that is chuck full of ribbon and lace this month!  With 14 different styles to choose from, it's hard to resist!  Below is a photo of the prep work required before layering them onto the umbrella!  Loads of pins for sure, but the new machine cut right through the work and the ribbons stood up to the task beautifully!  Sewing one stitch straight down the center allowed me to lift up the edges of the ribbons giving the umbrella that true ruffled feel!  So much fun!  I hope you give it a try, the look is amazing!

After the ribbons and lace were stripped onto the parasol and fluffed, I used some Stickles on the edges of the cuts from the template, popped them up on top of the ribbon for a authentic layered effect, tied a bow on top and added pearls and gems!

INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
