Pinterest Surfing Day 5: All That Ribbon

Happy Friday! 

We are looking forward to seeing so many of you all at Pinner's this weekend!  Whether you are taking our class or not, stop by the booth and say hello - we love seeing friendly faces! 

Today is our last day of full-time-Pinterest-surfing-on-the-blog and I am saving one of my favorite things for last!  I love ribbon!  Growing up, I had an IMPRESSIVE collection of homemade hairbows made by my mom with lots of love (and probably a small amount of frustration)!  I had tons of ribbon bows and fabric bows that matched the dresses, jumpers, and vests she made me (ask me about my slammin' childhood wardrobe next time I am in the store)! 

Anyways, I love ribbon and adding it to a variety of projects!  I keep a ton of it around the house for everything from wrapping gifts to making book marks.  I perused Pinterest and found some adorable ribbon projects just for you! 















And I know this isn't rolled ribbon, but how darn cute is this quilt made of swimming ribbons!?!

I love all these ribbon projects!  And, I am so excited to share these super cute new ribbons from May Arts in the store! 




I love the navy blue with the white x and the leaf and flamingo ribbon!  How perfect would this be for a spring layout or a trip to the zoo!?!

Aah!  Come on in and grab a length of your new favorite ribbon!  The store will be open all weekend while we pin away in Atlanta!
Now, go get crafty!

PS - Check out this adorable vinyl storage from Ikea!

Pinterest Surfing Day 4: Scrapbook Layouts!

Happy Thursday everyone!  Who has their suitcase packed for Pinners this weekend?  We are loading up the trailer and looking forward to a wonderful weekend with all things crafty! 

Yesterday, Gina asked what was your most pinned item... we saw a lot of scrapbook layouts!  Me too!  I keep a board of to be scraplifted and finished scrapbook layouts on my Pinterest page.  I went searching for some new favorites to share with you.  And from my searching today, I know that I am super into polaroid style photos and hearts! 

 Is this the cutest birthday layout???  And perfect for boys or girls!!!


 What a great way to share a ton of pictures from the zoo or aquarium or Disney!




 I love this idea for the first page of a travel album! 







Got any favorites from this list!  Beat the rain today and get a little bit of scrapbooking done!

Pinterest Surfing Day 3: Workspace Wednesday!

Ahh, another magical day of pinning!  Are you counting down the days to Pinners?   We are and can't wait!!!  One of the sessions that I am most excited about is learning to be organized.  It just doesn't come naturally to me and is always a struggle.  Always a struggle y'all!  From my craft room to my closet, being organized takes a ton of effort! 

So, today, I want to share with you some of my favorite inspiring craft rooms!  I love how organized they are and the creative storage solutions that they have found.  There is a ton of Ikea products here... and there is an Ikea in Atlanta (just to hit up a little shopping after Pinners - you are welcome)! 










What do you think about these spaces?  Which one is your favorite?  I am loving the lazy susan art caddy!!!  Plus, those peg boards are amazing!!! 

Now, go get crafty and we will see you at Pinner's!  Still haven't gotten your tickets - use the code SCRAPPIN for 10% off your ticket price!
