Friday Blog Hop



Happy Friday Everyone!!


Today I am here with the Scrapbook Steals July Blog Hop!  Have you ever visited the Scrapbook Steals  website and blog?  I found them about 7 months ago and I was instantly hooked.  This is the best place for Scrapbooking supplies !  Every day they have a special deal on a certain product.  That sale price is good for just 24 hours.  There deals are sometimes 20-75% off the retail value.  I LOVE a good bargain.  I have bought so many of my favorite products from Scrapbook Steals like October Afternoon, My Mind's Eye, Echo Park, and much much more.  They also have a wonderful blog that is filled with scrapbooking ideas.

So when Kristy asked me if I would like to be a part of the July blog hop featuring the Fancy Pants Design Ribbon Bundles I quickly said YES!!!    I was fortunate to receive the Fancy Pants Beach Babe Ribbon Trim.  I so loved this collection.  I fell in love with it as soon as I received it.  I couldn't wait to start working with it.  
Fancy Pants Designs - Beach Babe Collection - Ribbon Card

The first thing I made was a very fun layout using the blue pom pom trim.

I placed the trim underneath each photo.
Supplies

My next project uses the very fun floral ribbon.

My third project uses the striped ribbon.

Now we would love for you to hop along with us and see what all the other members created with their ribbon.  I have seen some of the projects and let me tell you you are totally going to be inspired.  The blog hop starts at 9 am today.  If you hop to all the members and leave a comment - One person will be chosen to receive a $20 gift certificate to scrapbook steals.
