     I was full of scrapbooking ideas when I first saw the Fancy Pants Designs Ribbon Bundle that I got to work with. I quickly thought of something I've been wanting to make that was a little "off the page". A trip to the fabric store and I was set! A cute memo board was created. The ribbon in this set is so strong and the colors are really fun. I enjoyed finding the material that would be a perfect fit!




     After I made the memo board, I spotted a photo of my hubby and I that I've been waiting to scrap and decided it was time. I got out my "It's the Little Things" collection and made this layout using another variety of the ribbon in this collection. I even pulled out my sewing machine that has been acting up lately (I will save that crazy story for another blog post) and I sewed the ribbon on with a variety of stitches. This one I loved so much I hung it up on my display board in my kitchen! 

     Lastly, with all of the graduation parties that we've attended this June/July, I made a card using the last of the varieties of ribbon. (The verse has a bit of a sparkly sheen on it which was a little tricky to photograph.) The ribbon created a classic look to finish off the card. 

     I am so happy that you stopped by to take a look at my projects today! I hope that you enjoyed seeing all of the creative uses for this amazing Fancy Pants Ribbon from all of these crafty ladies!  However, I couldn't let you go without a giveaway though could I?!? 

     How about a little Thicker fun? I will give away a few packs of Thickers to one person who:

Scrap Happy~Melissa
